Loomis could pay cost for lying to league, owner
General managers only have so numerous men and women above them in the NFL hierarchy. A team owner is one. The league workplace is one more spot you don’t want to mess with.
According to a report from Don Banks of SI.com, Saints G.M. Mickey Loomis got caught lying to each Saints owner Tom Benson and those conducting the NFL’s internal investigation of the Saints’ bounty program.
Loomis reportedly was asked about the Saints’ bounties in 2010 and denied understanding something about it. He then ignored Benson’s orders to discontinue to plan if it existed.
“When informed earlier this year of the new information, Mr. Benson advised league staff that he had directed his common manager, Mickey Loomis, to make sure that any bounty program be discontinued quickly. The evidence shows that Mr. Loomis did not carry out Mr. Benson’s path,” the league’s internal report reads via Banks.
“Similarly, when the initial allegations where discussed with Mr. Loomis in 2010, he denied any expertise of a bounty system and pledged that he would ensure that no such plan was in location. There is no evidence that Mr. Loomis took any efficient action to quit these practices.”
I’m no Florio, but I’ve watched enough legal dramas to know it’s usually the cover up, not the crime, that creates the most difficulties. Loomis did his best to cover up the circumstance. (He did not do a extremely great or great job at it.) He fell on the sword for his coaching staff. Each Loomis and coach Sean Payton could pay a steep price.
It’s been a rough week for Loomis. If absolutely nothing else, no one particular is thinking about Drew Brees’ contract situation proper now.
Nicely, except for Loomis.
