Mickey Loomis talks about the Saints bounty investigation


There were lots of camera clicks, an owner pop-in and a larger than usual media presence at New Orleans Saints headquarters Thursday.

But on the day of the 2012 NFL Draft, general manager Mickey Loomis was addressing questions about wire taps, bounty hits and suspensions, subjects that have dominated talk around the Black and Gold.

On whether the FBI or State Police have contacted his team? “I don’t know. I have not been,” Loomis said.

He also said the following:

“Look, I welcome an investigation. That’s fine with me.”

“This team is being painted with a broad brush. We’re the Evil Empire right now. That’s the way I see it. I know this: the character of our players and our staff and our coaches is as good as anyone at any sport at any time.”
