New Orleans Saints suspended General Manager Mickey Loomis could be in more hot water. Loomis, who is facing an eight-game suspension for his role in the recent "bounty-gate" scandal, reportedly had an electronic device in his Superdome suite that allowed him to eavesdrop on visiting coaching staffs.
According to the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of Louisiana, Loomis had the ability to listen through the secretly re-wired device most of the 2002 season and all of the 2003 and 2004 seasons. The wiring setup was disabled sometime in September of 2005 after Hurricane Katrina destroyed a lot of theGulfCoast.
Saints vice president of communications Greg Bensel said on Monday that the reports are false and inaccurate. If proven guilty, the allegations could be both a violation of NFL rules and possibly a federal crime.
