OTL profile on Payton omitted two key interviews
 
Earlier today, we put together a quick take on the stuff contained in the Outside The Lines profile of Saints coach Sean Payton. Now, its time to mention a couple of things that were omitted.

During a two-way with host Bob Ley, ESPNs John Barr shared the following anecdote.

Theres one instance where a gentleman by the name of Larry Holder who used to work for CBS online, he was recently named the beat writer for the Saints for the Times-Picayune, Barr said. Payton has a pet nickname for him N.F.L. with the middle F standing for a commonly-used expletive that starts with the letter F. Ill let you use your own imagination on that. But the larger point here is that Mr. Holder has done a number of stories that have rubbed Payton the wrong way, and that he was branded a dissenter. Someone whos negative. This is a guy whos going to cover the team daily for the main newspaper in town, and hes already sort of got that label on him.

The only flaw in that analysis? Barr never interviewed nor tried to contact Holder. Thats what Holder told PFT when we (wait for it) contact him.

He did not try to interview me, Holder told PFT regarding Barr.

“Payton has a pet nickname for him — ‘N.F.L.’ — with the middle ‘F’ standing for a commonly-used expletive that starts with the letter ‘F’.
I love it.

John Barr, the author of the Outside the Lines espose' of Sean Payton that aired on ESPN this morning, mentioned Larry Holder as one of the people who has a "bad" relationship with Sean Payton and the Saints... that SP has special names he calls Holder.

Larry Holder, who covers the Saints for CBS sports and now for the Times-Picayune was contacted by ProFootballTalk about him not being well liked by Sean Payton and the Saints. Holder said that that accusation is not true and he was NEVER even contacted by John Barr and ESPN, although Holder's name was mentioned in the OTL piece this AM.

So if Barr claims Holder is called names by Payton, why didn't Barr contact him directly to make a statement or appear in the piece?

How would Barr know that Holder has a problem with Payton or the Saints?
Barr doesn't because HE LIED ABOUT IT!
The exact same way he LIED about the Mickey Loomis eavesdropping accusation that was proven false.

Got it. This witch hunt is getting out of hand. Guess its the price you pay for being one of the best in the league.

Several months back I started a thread about the price of success. For decades we were doormats just wanting a chance to win it all. Now that we have and have continued winning I now know what teams like the Patriots, Yankees, Steelers, etc. feel like. Outside of your own region you are pretty much hated and put under a microscope. When you get this much attention, it isn't because you are losing week in and week out. Isn't it wonderful!!! :bng:

So why is Barr still employed again? :confused:

A sports reporter and Lies in the same sentence, surely not.

Maybe it was 3 interviews, because I am sure no one talked to Sean Payton himself.
