John Barr of ESPN:
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.
Wow. The hits just keep on coming. The Saints are slowly slipping into a pit of unspeakable despair. Consider that post-Katrina there was an outpour of support for the team, but at this point things are turning against them very fast.
