Default Saints allegedly bugged opposing locker rooms

Quote:
he U.S. Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of Louisiana was told Friday that New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis had an electronic device in his Superdome suite that had been secretly re-wired to enable him to eavesdrop on visiting coaching staffs for nearly three NFL seasons, "Outside the Lines" has learned.

Sources familiar with Saints game-day operations told "Outside the Lines" that Loomis, who faces an eight-game suspension from the NFL for his role in the recent bounty scandal, had the ability to secretly listen for most of the 2002 season, his first as general manager of the Saints, and all of the 2003 and 2004 seasons. The sources spoke with "Outside the Lines" under the condition of anonymity because of fear of reprisals from members of the Saints organization.

Jim Letten, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana, acknowledged being told of the allegations Friday and has briefed the FBI in New Orleans about Loomis' alleged activity, according to sources. If proven, the allegations could be both a violation of NFL rules and potentially a federal crime, according to legal sources. The federal Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) of 1986 prohibits any person from intercepting communications from another person using an electronic or mechanical device.
This really isn't good, the Saints could be in deep trouble if true.

If this is true, Loomis can expect a lifetime ban and the team will be losing draft picks.

No matter that they won a SB, this team is showing why they will always be the Aints.

The saints have a lot of problems off the field.the bounty scandal,the owner just demoted his grandaughter from running the team,they also had that vicodin scandal a few years back,and they can't get brees resigned. if these allgations are true,loomis will get a lifetime ban! the saints should just fire payton and start over!

And that's just being an effective GM, really.

If true, this would be worse than Spygate for sure.

However, this is a convenient time to sling mud at the Saints because it's likely to stick. I'd rather wait and see what comes of it.
