Thumbs down League outs Jimmy Kennedy as 2010 whistleblower, Kennedy denies

So much for protecting whistleblowers.

The lengthy memorandum issued by the NFL to all teams on Tuesday regarding the re-issued discipline in the Saints bounty scandal identifies former Vikings defensive lineman Jimmy Kennedy as the person who originally told former Vikings coach Brad Childress in early 2010 that the Saints had a bounty on former Vikings quarterback Brett Favre in the 2009 NFC title game. (The memo says that Kennedy was interviewed, but it says nothing about whether Kennedy retracted his claim. A prior memo issued by the league, back when protecting whistleblowers was a supposed priority, indicated that an unnamed Vikings player had come forward in early 2010, but that the player thereafter rescinded his contention.)

It’s not the first time Kennedy has been linked to the Saints bounty scandal. The sworn declaration submitted by former Saints defensive end Anthony Hargrove explained that former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams told Hargrove that Kennedy had said Hargrove told Kennedy about the bounty on Favre. At the time, Kennedy vehemently denied the contention via Twitter

Seriously? Greg told Hargrove that Kennedy said Hargrove told Kennedy? How the F does this even stand up to anything? He said that she said that he said that her cousin told her. A joke......

I like the Favre vs. Manning theory better.

Hell if Kennedy was never interviewed...

Ginsberg needs to depose him and put him on the stand in court, right after Childress steps off.
