"Tru" reporting baby! Totally worth backstabbing an innocent and dying "friend". Congrats Sean Pamphilon, you're worse than Gregg Williams.

Can't wait to relax back home with after a hard battle with a turkey... Never thought I would be out smarted by a bird

Times-Picayune: Documentary filmmaker who released Gregg Williams audio recording says truth needed to come out

Shout to all the saints players who leave all on the field# whodatnation behind you 100%..WHO DAT

Great first session of rehab n trainin!! Lunch time then back Grindin in a hour!!

Oh Jesus Christ. RT : Pamphilon was not media

My quick-take on the Gregg Williams tape: Over the line, but exposing the brutality of the sport.

One thing I will say, I didn't see any 49ers showing remorse after Donte Whitner's knockout shot on Pierre Thomas. It's part of the game.

Sources close to Saints said Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis directed Gregg Williams to ensure no inappropriate conduct would occur.

What I don't want to hear about is the purity and sanctity of the 49ers in face of Saints' evil. 49ers were blasting the Saints, too.

How can the Saints allow a filmmaker in their meeting room a week after being warned about the bounties? Seems stupid. Does not make sense.

Ok I'm back to being regular chilled Malcolm... Any positive news today?

Moral of the story? If you're shooting a film and can't afford Scorcese, go with Jason Berry.

in light the the gregg williams audio. i don't think i was ever on a team where a coach didn't mention an opposing players injury.

speeches like that can be heard across the league. sounds brutal outside the boundaries of a teams facility, but it's the standard.

if a corner has a hamstring injury you make him run. test him early & then test him again after the different w/ other injuries.

if he had a concussion you want to see how willing he is to tackle your rb. that's how it works. sounds harsh but it's part of strategy.

Unfortunately for NFL, we're seeing the underbelly of the sport largely hidden from masses. Seamy side of the business exposed.

Hey everybody I have a great idea! How about we spend the whole day bitching about the exact same s*** we bitched about a month ago?
