Yep, them Saints maybe in trouble again. Not for what they did last year, but 6 years ago or so. The Feds have been given information that says their suspended GM was listening into the other team’s communication using nefarious means. For those of you who played in the line, nefarious means not on the up and up. Would Mickey Loomis do that? Who knows, maybe the Shadow and whoever made the claim, but he is innocent until proven guilty.
The Saints are threatening legal action against ESPN, claiming that it never happened!!!! Let’s hope that they follow through and have a public trial. The hypothetical questions from the ESPN lawyers might be as shown, and hypothetical answers might be as follows:
Mr. Loomis. “Did you listen in to conversation of your opponents coaches?”
Loomis replies. “I don’t remember, but if I did I think that I might remember it.”
Mr. Loomis. ” What does that mean?”
Loomis replies. “It”, interrupted by Loomis’ attorney who says ” I object, question asked, question answered!!!!”
Judge: “Sustained, I think…” “Where my law clerk when you need her?”
ESPN lawyer. “Did you ever violate the NFL’s policy on electronic eves-drooping?”
Loomis. “I don’t understand the question”
ESPN lawyer. “What don’t you understand?”
Loomis. “If I knew what I didn’t understand, then I would understand it.”
ESPN lawyer to Judge. “Witness is being evasive your honor.” “Please instruct him to answer my questions.”
Judge, seeing that his law clerk has just entered the room. “Gosh Molly, that dress sure makes you look sexy.” “I pick my clerks for their knowledge and potential; Molly has lots and lots of potential!!!”
Judge speaks, “It is already 2:00 and the day is almost over, so I adjourn this court until a week from Tuesday when my wife returns.” “Molly please bring the transcript of today’s proceedings into my very private chamber.” Judge bangs his gavel “Court adjourned!!!!”
That night on Sports Center the lead story is about anything, but the court proceedings, as that would violate “legal ethics.” Isn’t that term an oxymoron?
Have a great weekend and enjoy the draft, its only on TV for 3 days!!!!!!
