Drew Brees through a Twitter shoe at President Bush when he compared Bountygate to finding WMDs in Iraq. Saints owner Tom Benson and suspended general manager Mickey Loomis will be allowed to meet during Loomis' 8 game suspension. The reason is that Benson owns the New Orleans Hornets, and Loomis is director of basketball operations for the NBA squad. The NFL expects Loomis and Benson to only discuss NBA matters, something that will be nearly impossible to enforce, but the NFL is also trying not to step on the NBA's toes. It looks like Loomis and Benson will be able to spend many hours together talking exclusively of basketball *cough*. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Vikings' wide receiver Percy Harvin is requesting that the team trade him. While the link leads to possibly the shortest report in NFL.com history, I can tell you that the trade request reveals a lot about the state of the Minnesota Vikings. I'll put it this way. Good players want to be on good ...

Jimmy Graham may not get a new contract any time soon

Getty Images With the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal currently going on, as well as a contract stand-off between the Saints and quarterback Drew Brees, it doesn’t look like tight end Jimmy Graham will get a long-term deal any time soon.   Another problem that the Saints have, is that they don’t have the cap room at the moment to lock Graham up to a long-term contract. Graham’s...

Saints Coach Joe Vitt Offers to Take Lie Detector to Prove Truth About Bountygate

The New Orleans Saints have been at odds with the NFL all offseason, as the alleged bountygate scandal has dominated just about every football headline.

Saints Nation: Bountygate Remains a Never Ending Saga Because of Spotty "Evidence"

I know I told you all it was time to move on, but with the plethora of news continually pouring out on a daily basis on "bountygate", and with the lack of any other real Saints related news, what else am I going to write about? My main issue with the "evidence" presented continues to be the ridiculous amount of fluff, after the fact exhibits, and useless table...

Drew Brees: Bounty evidence is like Iraq’s WMDs

Dick Durbin of Illinois, the second-ranking democrat in the senate, on Wednesday, Goodell announced that the NFL would...

Saints Nation: Time to Move On as Fans from "Bountygate"

Something I've done in the painstakingly long "bountygate" process is accept that Roger Goodell is going to get his way, live with the fact that the Saints will be without numerous key coaches, front office members, and players, and just move on. I think it's time we all do that, honestly. Regardless of what side of the fence you sit on, at the end of the day, I...
