Saints evidence released to media - "Overwhelming"


Mary Jo White, lately of Debevoise & Plimpton, "New York you know", as my grandmother would say released some of the "Bounty" evidence today to certain members of the media, including S.I.s Peter King and Newsday's Bob Glauber, formerly of Sporting News.

King, in his column reveals that the evidence includes testimony from former Saints DC Gregg Williams that Williams was aware that the program ""was rolling the dice with player safety and someone could have been maimed." Additionally the league garnered evidence from the Saints computer system. Again, if you've written it on your computer somebody can recover it. There were apparently Power Point slides found detailing some of the system.

Some of the fine points:

1. The bounty on injuring Viking QB Brett Farve was $35,000 not ten thousand as had been leaked before.

2.The picture inside the Saints locker room the night before the game included Saints LB Johnathan Vilma "

"raising his hands, each of which held stacks of bills, that he had two 'five-stacks,''' to give to the player who knocked Favre from the game"

3. Interim Saints HC, Joe Vitt contributed $5,000 to the bounty on Farve.

All in all a dark day for the league and those who love the game. Also let me say that the league can't release all of the evidence because it certainly can be used as evidence in other pending legal matters.
