Sean Payton: Eavesdropping report is “hogwash”

SeanPayton030110_crop_650x440 Getty Images

Suspended Saints head coach Sean Payton doesn’t believe for a minute that General Manager Mickey Loomis eavesdropped on opposing coaches by tampering with communications devices at the Superdome.

Payton, who is banished from the NFL until after the Super Bowl for failing to stop the team’s bounty program, said today that he thinks it’s inconceivable that Loomis would have listened in on opposing coaches. ESPN reported this week that Loomis had the ability to hear opposing coaches’ discussions during games at the Superdome from 2002 to 2004. Payton, who became the Saints’ head coach in 2006, was one of the coaches who could have been a victim of the eavesdropping during his time as an assistant with the Cowboys. But Payton thinks the whole report is ridiculous.

“I think it’s hogwash,” Payton told Larry Holder of CBS Sports. “Obviously, I wasn’t here, but I know Mickey Loomis well enough and I would consider him a close friend and professionally one of the best general managers.”

Payton said the start of his suspension has been difficult, but he’s looking forward to spending more time with his kids and coaching his 12-year-old son’s football team.

“I think that you go through the initial week and that’s challenging and then you kind of move forward,” Payton said. “That’s kind of happened with me. There’s a lot of things I’m looking forward to do. A lot of that starts with your own children and the time that normally you don’t have. I’ll have a lot more of it.”

Payton said he may work on television this season if he can find a TV gig in which he is “still paying attention to the game, but at the same time really trying to dive into two young children that are growing up quickly.”

    “I would consider him a close friend and PROFESSIONALLY one of the best general managers.”

    Yea, he’s so professional as he continued to lie and deceive the NFL during the Bountygate investigation. Nobody gives a s*** what you have to say Sean Payton! You STILL believe the whole Bountygate isn’t true and you aren’t even allowed to make contact with anyone in the Saints organization. When are you, or anyone in the Saints organization going to learn to just keep your mouth shut and pay for all of your past transgressions.

  7. bchapman2011 says: Apr 25, 2012 7:52 PM

    Payton was not even with the team during the seasons this was alleged to occur. How can he say this with any degree of certainty?

  8. jimr10 says: Apr 25, 2012 7:53 PM

    Surprise..surprise that Sean Payton would support his boss…

  9. sportmentary says: Apr 25, 2012 7:55 PM

    Now that’s a guy that you can trust. I actually think the allegations are true, due to the people denying them.

    How about some evidence first? This isn’t even the NFL league office with their cloak-and-dagger investigations. It’s an allegation that is thus far unsubstantiated.

    Wait and see. Like some jurisdictions for the Rule Against Perpetuities.

    I have no problems with these articles. The problem I have is that it’s all from saints employees. Why would they tell the truth? That is if the truth is that this did happen.

  13. vikingamericann says: Apr 25, 2012 8:04 PM

    I’m sure some of the haters will want to make comments about Payton’s son and bounties. I can say nothing about them that their comments don’t reveal about themselves. Some people just hate lIfe and want to show the world how much they hate themselves. Well Coach Payton enjoy your time with children, being a father is the best thing ever.

  14. thejuddstir says: Apr 25, 2012 8:04 PM

    Loomis lies and Payton swears to it……now that’s a whole lot of cred!! In related news, it’s reported that Payton has hired Greg Williams to be the defensive coordinator for his 12 year old son’s football team and together they’re planning on having the toughest meanest defense in the Pop Warner league. No truth to the rumor that J. Vilma has donated $5G to the team.

  19. staugslugga says: Apr 25, 2012 8:15 PM

    So the NFL says they lied and says they had a pay to injure program, and everyone believes the NFL. You don’t need any evidence to believe this.

    The Saints coaches and admins say otherwise, and their credibility is previously shot, sans evidence.

    Then people say he needs to shut up. But, if he ignores the media or the NFL, people say he’s an a**hole. Double standard much?

    Vitt, Payton, et all- the entire Saints football operation has zero credibility at this point. They can deny; but are we gullible enough to actually believe anything they say?

    His opinion is utterly useless as he wasn’t even there at the time. Yes, of course Loomis is a great guy, the greatest you have ever known, we know.

    This is a somewhat pointless article except that I read it and commented on it and added more clicks to a site that more and more seems to be concerned with traffic above all else.

    Saints fans – better hope this wiretapping thing is completely fake or the law and Goddell are going to make the bounty punishment look like slaps on the wrist.

  25. jluns275 says: Apr 25, 2012 8:29 PM

    Whew!….Boy howdy, where to start…..
    It’s perhaps bordering on a hallucinatory level of optimism (or just plain old denial, like the rest of his Saints cronies) for Payton to assume any sane, reasonable person would take his word about ANYTHING at this point: Lying to the NFL with his every breath, as well as undertaking any & all efforts to systematically distort, obstruct, & conceal evidence from the NFL for 3 years running could maybe call in to question his credibility.
    Just a little bit.
    Personally, if he told me his name was Sean right now I might just call BS!
    It’s also good to know that in his expert opinion, Saints GM Mickey Loomis is a ‘professional’ who would never do such a thing as listen in on opposing teams play calling & coaches’/coordinators’ booth &/or radio chatter.
    Apparently, that would be in bad taste.
    Loomis & Payton truly are quite the pair; they helped funnel money from a prolific sports bettor (with ties to organized crime, AND who bet on Saints games) to recipients of the bounty money.
    Lastly, I’m sure economic times are tough in the Payton household after being paid millions for his tainted success from his ill gotten, asterisk laden Super Bowl victory, but do you think Payton will use his own money for the bounties on players opposing his son’s team, or will there be a fund raiser for it?
    Perhaps his good buddy Gregg Williams or even a ‘professional’ like Mickey Loomis could bring in an outside source of money to help move things along.
    Hey, c’mon….it worked last time.

  26. waitingguilty says: Apr 25, 2012 8:29 PM

    A. Agree with all the comments that point out the lack of credibility here. The pain killer thing and then the repeats lying about bounties….just go no comment here my man.

    nineroutsider Remember when news of bounttygate first broke and there were reports that Payton and company denied the charges? Remember that the harshness of the penalties were due to telling lies.

    So based on previous actions, we are to assume they are true. The fact they are denying these charges in the same manner as bountygate, seals the deal for me.

    Can you imagine how ape sh*t Saints will go if this is proven to be true and they’re hammered again.

  29. SeenThisB4 says: Apr 25, 2012 8:40 PM

    Seems to me, everything he said is credible.

    Get used to it. Sean Payton will be in the news from here till after the Superbowl, especially when the season starts. Goodell may have wanted to suspend him, but all he did was make him even more of a media magnet.

  30. silentcount says: Apr 25, 2012 8:48 PM

    The fact is, just about every team would trade their coach for Sean Payton in a second if he was available. He’s already proven to be one of the elite minds as a head coach. All of the hate mongers here would suddenly love him if he was put in charge of leading their team to the Superbowl. Of course, on here they would DENY that. For now, they need a fabricated villain to blame and direct their frustration towards.

    —————————————————————

    Meanwhile, as you typed this rant, Mickey Loomis just wooed another top free agent, finalized draft plans, secured a new 100-year lease, restructured the contract of the 2012 apocalypse to end 5 months after football season, and made a kick-ass taco salad.

    Saints = 2013 Super Bowl champions. And you can go ahead and put an asterisk on that if you like.

  32. rexismybff says: Apr 25, 2012 9:03 PM

    When an adult man who calls himself “Mickey” is wiretapping my conversations, that’s when I’m officially freaked out. In New Orleans, no less.

  33. annes22 says: Apr 25, 2012 9:07 PM

    Just shut up, because no one believes you anymore you liar. You and your team of loosers are banned from the NFL for a reason, so how you have any right to say anything, I have no idea. Just go back in your “hole” and stay there until you year suspension is up.

    What’s it been 3-4 days since his suspension started, and he’s already running his lying mouth? Keep talking Sean, I’m sure Goodell will be glad to tack on another year or two on that suspension.

  36. ehsguy72 says: Apr 25, 2012 9:23 PM

  40. mogogo1 says: Apr 25, 2012 9:35 PM

    I was agreeing with him about it being hogwash right up until the “I know Mickey and he’s a great GM” line. Uh, Sean, Mickey’s suspended for the same thing you are. Not really the best time to brag about his integrity.

    I’m trying to be a reasonable non-conspiracy theorist here. I’m willing, and have been willing, to accept the punishments the Commish has passed down.

    That being said… Here’s my 2 cents…

    The punishments are severe, yes, but no matter what the media or Goodell says, he’s sending a clear message. And the message is this: The NFL is in multiple lawsuits from ex-players. Their message is, quite simply, “Hey everybody, we crack down on anybody that threatens player safety. (Que highlight reels of big hits) The Saints are not above the Shield. (Que Giants players talking about going after a 49er player) We have a standard to uphold and it begins and ends with player safety. (Que Goodell saying the fans want an 18 game schedule) And lastly, please don’t sue us, because we care about player safety.” (Que footage of retired players hobbling into court)

    The Patriots didn’t get dragged through the mud this badly. Goodell even helped them by destroying evidence for them. Belichick still coached the following season. Why? Because there are no lawsuits against the NFL for videotaping division rival walk-throughs.

    We are THE sacrificial lamb that the NFL hopes will keep them from paying medical bills to hundreds or thousands of players, whose safety he gave 2 sh*ts about just a year ago.

    So haven’t we had enough? No. In order to keep the lawsuits buried on page 7 in the news, the NFL is stringing these punishments along as much as possible. Every other day is an update or new headline about the Saints. The NFL has wagged the dog so hard, its dead and they don’t even know it. When you run out of Bounty BS, simply have ESPN try to run Mickey Loomis out of town with a new scandal.

    Its simply too close to the draft to throw out punishments now. Wouldn’t want to steal the NFL’s thunder. Especially since waiting not only hurts the Saints more, but a week or two later when more players join in on the lawsuits, the NFL can announce the suspensions, once again wagging that dead dog.

    But what do I know? I’m just a Saints fan.

    I’m glad that PFT continues to roll out the Saints stories regularly.

    It gives all the losers a chance to voice their frustrations and hate in life in a single spot that is largely unnoticed, as opposed to taking it out on some innocent victim in the real world. One can only imagine the horrors they submit their spouses, girlfriends (if they even have one) and “friends” to on a daily basis.
    To live a life such as many of the commenters on this site do is to live a thousand years of useless existence.

An unnamed source accused the organization for single handedly causing the economy down turn in 2008.

    The NFL reportedly has a million documents to prove this allegation…but they won’t release them.

    You low-brow, knuckle-dragging Saints shouldn’t even worry about the Commish…he’s just sitting back, waiting to see what your backward thinking franchise will screw up next.

  64. redstar504 says: Apr 26, 2012 12:23 AM

    @4thqtrSaint
    Look I buy that the NFL is using the Saints to some extent as a case in point to help defend against the wrath of lawsuits they are facing. Honestly, I am OK with that. If us loosing coach Payton for a year, some cash, draft picks, and our good name being dragged thru the mud is the price we have to pay to protect the game of football from something that could potentially destroy the game we all love I am OK with that. I love the Saints but I also love the game. Considering all the NFL did for this city in the wake of Katrina I am more than willing to pay the price and fall on the sword so to speak.

    However, at the end of the day we are being punished for a botched coverup. Look what Nixon did in Watergate was not really all that bad just like what the Saints did wasn’t all that bad. What is bad is when you get caught and you lie about it. If Nixon came clean when Watergate broke he stays in office. If the Saints came clean when they got caught then we get light punishments similar to what NE got in Spygate, we didn’t so like Nixon we got the book thrown at us.

    That coverup has made us an easy mark for BS stories like this wiretapping nonsense. The story is totally untrue and the guy that made this stuff up should get canned by ESPN but he likely won’t because no one is going to believe us.

    I just want to get back to football because we have a great team even sans coach but at the end of the day, more important than Bountygate, Spygate, and false accusations of wiretappping the lawsuits are the big story and a serious threat to the game we all love. We seriously need a vote in this country for some type of tort reform. Class-Action lawsuits are crippling not just football but every industry in the nation.

    Hey you bunch of SHEEP!

    Over a three year period, the Entire Saints Defense Injured Exactly ZERO Players as a Result of Illegal Hits on the Field. ZERO, walk-offs never to return, ZERO cart-offs never to return.

    What part of ZERO don’t you people get?

    It is the same as your checking account balance.

    It is closer to your IQ than 100.

    The Saints are the subject of Goodell’s wrath because of the lawsuits by “retired” players. This is ALL about protecting the shield and the wallet. It has nothing to do with a “bounty” program, i.e., paying players to injure other players, because NOBODY WAS INJURED!

    GODdell has a hard-on for the Saints since he lost his shirt in the NFC Championship game in 2009 when we beat Favre and the Viqueers into the ground and then the Ponies in the SB…. cannot wait until we take it out on all of the teams this yr and run up the scores..on our way to the SB in 2013….

    I’d like to spend more time with my kids, too. Ok, five minutes, that’s enough – does anyone know of a TV gig I could land to get me the hell away from this family life BS?

    Payton and Brees sure talk a lot. Deny deny to the bitter end. Zero remorse. Do

    Again, lemmings, you’re so quick to tar and feather Payton, yet there has been literally Zero evidence presented to support the allegations of a Pay to Injure scheme. None. Zero.

    That should bother you. That should OUTRAGE you.

    The failure of any Saints player trying to win the bounty money, of actually inflicting a serious injury, does not negate their participation in the bounty program. Each time that one of you idiots bring up this defense, you make yourself and all others using the same tired argument, look like even bigger idiots.

    I personally feel sorry for the Saints fans, the real fans who have been devastated by all that this crew of coaches has brought you, with their devious and demented “plans” for winning games using that little something “extra”, to get the guys fired up. If I was so dogged in my fanaticism of a team, like I was years ago, and this happened to that team, it would have devastated me, too. But you’ve got to move on. It’s happened, and nothing is going to erase that.

    Yeah, I mean considering you let your scumbag coaching staff run a dirty operation, everyone is certainly intently listening to the garbage you spew. What a tool. One can only hope someone takes out Brees’ ACL the first game of the year.

    I thought you were outrage because the Saints jeopardized player safety. Now you are putting a bounty of hope on Bree’s ACL. This makes you a liar, thus you have no credibility. Then the rest of you condone this yet condemn the Saints. … I’m going to need an explanation for this.

    Well Your Mom’s Hogwash. So how do you like them apples? HUH PAYTON? HOW DO YOU LIKE THEM APPLES! DO YOU LIKE THEM?! WELL GOOD.

    You are probably the dumbest person to successfully use a keyboard.

    You Saints fans defending your teams actions is hilarious. Another black mark for the entire ‘aints organization. Sad.
