Fleur-de-Links: Saturday, July 21



Jermon Bushrodtruth.. Just like u never see a happy Popeyes employee "@Lanre3000: Ive never seen a disgruntled Chik Fil A employee..."

WWL-TV SportsBreed has filed an affidavit in favor of Jonathan Vilma, basically says that Vilma is a good teammate, person.

Andrew Juge@wwltvsports did they breed during affidavit? I hope so

WWL-TV Sports@AndrewJuge The affidavits appear to be multiplying so yes.

Andrew Juge@wwltvsports HAHAHAHAHA. Wow. Well played. Too good.

WWL-TV SportsAnd my first tweet should have been Brees. The autocorrect on my phone changes it to breed & I always forget to change it!

WWL-TV SportsBrees says not allowing Vilma to play will have a negative impact on the team & on the LB's ability to positively affect the city.

WWL-TV SportsBrees also once again questions the validity of the alleged bounty program. Says he has no knowledge of it & has yet to see any evidence.
