Yeah, that is funny isn't it!
It's 11:30pm and nothing from the "mothership" of sports.
ESPN is about to go 0-2 in this week due to their LIES.
They're gonna get sued!

I was listening to their radio show the other day (I can't remember the show) and I swear man they sounded like a giant mouthpiece for the NFL.

I watch that station less and less. Matter of fact- I rarely watch that station.

Speaking of ESPN, just found this interesting nugget on twitter:

Didn't the NFL deny that an offer was ever made?

They sure did.
They also claimed to have some (and I quote) "50,000 pages of documents" of evidence from the Bountygate scandal "investigation."

I want to repeat that again, so no one misunderstands: The NFL claimed in press releases and in explicit interviews to have "FIFTY THOUSAND PAGES OF DOCUMENTS" (50,000 PAGES) as evidence.

To give you the proportion of that LIE, let's put it into perspective.
Large 8.5x11 versions of the Bible at 10pt font are approximately 750 pages long.

To make up 50,000 pages, you would have to stack 66 large 8.5x11in Bibles (with 10pt font) one on top of the next to make a pile stack to qualify 50,000 pages.


Then, at the players hearing, the NFL presents the players about 20 page (?) PowerPoint presentation, of it several pages were completely fabricated from supposed "paper" with Gregg Williams & Vilma's handwriting on it that they did not want to show (probably because it was a forgery), so they FABRICATED IT (typed it up).

So, considering how GIGANTIC of a lie this probably is because landing at the 50,000 page number and putting it out there as FACT requires someone with a large imagination, I seriously can believe the NFL LIED about their settlement offer of reducing Vilma's suspension to 8 games.

Therefore, yes the NFL did deny it, but I cannot believe ANYTHING they say whatsoever.

Heck, they couldn't even confirm whether Tom Benson went to meet with Goodell yesterday...
When NFL.com and NFL Network's Steve Wyche reached out to the NFL for comment, a league spokesman chose not to confirm the meeting, stating Goodell meets with owners frequently on a variety of issues. Following the release of the Saints' statement, the NFL declined to describe what was discussed between Benson and Goodell, according to Wyche.

That 50,000 about 2 weeks ago according to NFL Network when they interviewed RG, became 1800 pages.

Where did 1800 pages come from all of a sudden from the 50,000 or 18,000? I dunno, but they cant even seen to get the number of pages right.
