No duh. 30 minute OTL special and screaming headlines vs. the AP article in the middle of a sidebar, that's cool too.

Screw ESPN. I'm really tired of that po-dunk "news" network stating whatever they please as "fact" due to nameless sources. It's ridiculous, and they do it way too often. ESPN needs to stop listening to certain "sources." Just because you get an e-mail with a "hot tip," doesn't mean you shouldn't verify it. There is absolutely no accountability.

Hey, it's not like they hide or bury stories based on where they have connections or what organization actually breaks the story.

/what?

I'm still amazed they weren't sued for violating MLB confidentiality in the Ryan Braun case.

Well if you can't trust Louisiana law enforcement who can you trust?

A police agency in a state where the team does most of their business finds no wrong doing? Im shocked I tells ya, shocked!

Ehhh who cares, unless he got real time updates to the coach its a moot point

The State Police were engaged in a joint investigation with the FBI. I'd be very, very surprised if the feds come up with any different conclusion. This whole affair was a steaming pile of crap ESPN concocted based on one disgruntled former electrical contractor who the Saints fired for submitting phony billing invoices who was dug up by some hack who was sent down here from ESPN with specific marching orders to dig up dirt on the Saints. This whole story was bullshiat from the jump, and I can't wait for Benson to hit ESPN with a lawsuit (and it's know he's already got lawyers waiting to pounce as soon as all the law enforcement investigations are done).

Obviously BS "story" turns out to be BS. Shocking.

Troof. It's only a matter of time before they cross somebody with an overzealous laywer.

ESPN wouldn't be bound to any confidentiality agreement between MLB and the MLBPA.

I'm sure the LA state police would always conduct objective investigations when the Saints are involved.

Yeah I kind of figured that after hearing about the electrical contractor story but it was something juicy so they wanted people to watch, it was annoying but then espn has been annoying for a while since they quit just running highlights on sportscenter and trying to run human interest stories.

I remember I used to be almost late for work or school because I was watching highlights, now Im early because I dont have to turn them on any longer.

They were acting in coordination with the FBI, but go ahead and run with that.

You are obviously NAL. What in blue blazes would lead you to believe that espn would in any way be bound by a contract between two entities that are not espn?

I'm waiting for the coverage that starts out with "ESPN has CONFIRMED ________'s reporting". I can't remember when they started doing that for stories that others break.
 
2012-08-13 06:55:25 PM  
As somebody who used to run the SuperStat system for an NFL team during home games, I lol at this finding. I saw more dubious shiat in those boxes than I care to remember.

Another paragon of law enforcement virtue.

It's a much shorter list if we just start with the assumption that all parties are full of shiat and work backwards to parties that aren't.

We knew that when they let Craig "Corksucker" James use their network as a platform to bully a school into firing their head coach.

Hey, has anyone mentioned Louisiana law enforcement yet? Because that would be so insightful and original.

Chapter 3. The Mad Bayliss

"Curiouser and curiouser" thought Alice the further down ESPN's rabbit hole she travelled.

I guess you can trust a fired employee with an axe to grind.
 
2012-08-13 11:13:54 PM  
You can't trust the police, but you can trust unnamed, unverified sources with no evidence being reported by ESPN!

I'd put the integrity of the FBI above local and state law enforcement. plus, they don't have a natural, regional bias in favor of the saints.

Nabb1: Hey, has anyone mentioned Louisiana law enforcement come in to white knight the Saints yet? Because that would be so insightful and original.

Hey, I watched the Saints play at Heinz Field in '06. For a moment the camera panned the crowd and I saw Jerry Sandusky seated right behind the Saints bench.

/call the cops
