New Orleans Saints General Manager has hit back at accusations he eavesdropped on opposition coaches in a communication sent this evening to NFL insider Jay Glazer:
“This report on ESPN is absolutely false. I have a monitor in front of me in my booth that provides the league issued stats for the game. I have a small tv with the network broadcast and I have an earpiece to listen to the WWL-AM radio (flagship broadcaster) game broadcast.
To think I am sitting in there listening and actually and or doing something with the offensive and defensive play calls of the opposing teams makes this story and the unnamed sources that provided the false information that much more less credible…it just didn’t happen.”
A predictable first response to say the least and one which will not end the firestorm that has begun over these allegations. Expect a lot more on this in the coming days and weeks.
