NFL seriously responds to the question of "What evidence do you have against these four specific players for illegal conduct?" w/ ...

"Here is a list of things Gregg Williams said to nobody in particular." I mean, what the hell?

Best move for NFL might be to turn over some evidence/exhibits today & then reduce suspensions.Show that process is fair & appeal is real

A commenter on my blog last week told me to kill myself, and I'm still alive today. EXPLAIN THAT, NFL!

": So im playing madden & gets hurt, out for 8 weeks" Did I have the ball at least? W/ some TLC I'll be back in 6

Somehow, I escaped the laws of physics long enough not to do something just because someone else said it. Unfathomable. I'm a superhero.

The Saints are guilty! AND ARROGANT! Because I told you so, and regardless if I can prove it, I am above reproach.

Goodell: "Break it up into quotes, in a slideshow. That way, it'll look like content instead of just a list of bulls***."

Jonathan Vilma's lawyer: Evidence shows no 'bounty' link to LB -
"The NFL provided a slideshow of Gregg Williams' most outrageous comments," Ginsberg said. "It is evidence that reflects an assistant coach in the NFL has a style that might rightfully be distasteful but that has been tolerated for years by several NFL teams. It in no way supports any of the accusations that Commissioner Goodell has so publicly made against Jonathan.

NFL turns over some evidence to four players suspended for New Orleans Saints bounty program - ESPN
NEW YORK -- The NFL has turned over some evidence to the four players suspended for the Saints bounty program, but lawyers for the players are seeking more information.

NFLPA seeks exculpatory evidence in advance of bounty hearings | ProFootballTalk
On Friday, the NFLPA and the individual players will know more about the evidence that the NFL plans to use on Monday. Hopefully, someone will see fit to ensure that the evidence makes its way into the hands of the media. And before anyone claims that it’s none of the media’s business, the NFL has on multiple occasions made it the media’s business, using the media as the tool for communicating to the fans information that the league wanted to be disseminated. The time has come for the media, and thus the fans, to know the full story.

NFL must show evidence today for Monday's hearing against New Orleans Saints defenders - New Orleans Saints Football NFL News -
In other developments, sources said Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis rejected a request from the union that the club issue some statement of support for the players. And they said the semantic gulf between "bounty," with all its creepy connotations, and a less sinister "pay for performance" system also came into sharp relief, when the NFLPA highlighted the fact the NFL acknowledged having no evidence former Saints linebacker Scott Fujita ever put a "bounty" on any specific player.

Players want coaches, others at bounty hearings, too | ProFootballTalk
Ultimately, it would be a surprise if the NFL relents. The league doesn’t envision the process to require the sort of procedures that would be used in a court of law. Given the consequences to the suspended players and in light of the fact that they strongly dispute the allegations, it seems that there should at least be an opportunity for them to demonstrate their innocence by testing the quality of the evidence on which the NFL has relied in telling the world that they are guilty.

Saints Still The Real Deal, True Contenders For 2012

Not much work left to be done on signing draft picks | ProFootballTalk
Only the Saints have yet to sign any. But New Orleans only has five draft picks, and no first or second rounder, so it shouldn’t be too complicated for them to get those deals done.

On "Fanhood," the annex - Who Dat Social Club
And so, it has to be answered. Plus, this "The_Creator" guy is simply wrong about everything. He knows nothing about New Orleans, nothing about the Saints, and pretty much nothing about what a fan is. So I’m going to school him.

Fasano says Hard Knocks news caused "a lot of groans" in locker room | ProFootballTalk
"I wasn’t too thrilled to tell you the truth," Fasano said. "I think we were informed at a team meeting and there were a lot of groans when it was announced. But we’re going to have to deal with it and try not to let it be a distraction. But it’s going to be fun for the fans and should be interesting to see, even for some of the players, behind the scenes of the team."
