Say It Ain’t So, Saints In More Trouble?

When news broke yesterday on ESPN about New Orleans Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis allegedly using listening devices to spy on opposing coaches, I thought, “here we go again.” It seems like when you’re down, people want to keep kicking you.

The accusations are that Loomis had an electronic device set up in his Superdome suite that allowed him to eavesdrop on visiting coaching staffs. The alleged eavesdropping went on from 2002-04.

Both Loomis and the Saints organization have refuted these claims.

To make matters worse, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of Louisiana is involved. They were made aware of the situation on Friday and relayed the information to the FBI. According to legal sources, if the allegations are proven, not only would it be a violation of NFL rules but also would be a potential federal crime.

Mickey Loomis has already been reprimanded, as we all know, by the NFL for his involvement in the Saints bounty scandal. He is suspended for 8 regular season games for the 2012 season.

What do you think? Do you believe there are any legs to this story or is it just disgruntled former employees trying to continue to throw the team under the bus?
