Saints They Ain't, Mickey Loomis More Like Mickey Mouse

I can assure you that Saints fans want to make sure
they aren't ever reminded of the days when their
beloved Saints were referred to as the Aint's, but
that was only because they couldn't win a game to
save their lives. Now it seems that they would be
better recognized if they borrowed their name from
an NHL team, the New Jersey Devils.

Guilt or innocence on much of what's been said and
suspected is still yet to be decided, but like the
old saying goes, "Where there's smoke, there's fire.
I have been saying from day one of the suspensions
that the man who should have gotten the one year
suspension, should have been Mickey Loomis, the GM,
not Sean Payton the head coach. Though I realize
that the head coach is ultimately responsible for
happens with the team, good or bad, Mickey Loomis
sees to be playing a pretty large role in all of
these shenanigans.

I know that in this modern era of sports teams can
often go from worst to 1st, but the Saints dominance
to me seemed a little too dominant at times, and
though I can't put my finger on it, it just didn't
feel right. Now I know that Drew Brees is no fluke
at QB, and Sean Payton is one hell of a coach, but
a little edge never hurt anyone, if no one finds out
that is. Now there comes news that Loomis was eaves
dropping on the opposing teams locker rooms.
"Where there's smoke, there's fire". You want to
believe people have it out for the Saints, you're
entitled to that, but I don't, and I can't think of
anyone who does. Everyone wants to knock you off
when you're on top, buy that's nothing new, and
they have already admitted to their transgressions,
so it's not as if it was fabricated. Defensive
coordinator Gregg Williams was guilty of this stuff
even before he got to New Orleans, and that may have
made him more appealing to them, and why they finally
got over the hump, and won it all.

If any of these new accusations are true it may not
seem as bad as "Bountygate" because injury to opposing
players may not necessarily come from it or be ordered,
but it should be punishable in as harsh a way as Gregg
Williams is being punished now. In light of the fact
that Loomis will be not just a multiple offender, but
one that actively worked on cheating more than he did
anything for the good of the game or the league, the
hammer on this Mickey should fall hard and swift.
There is no room for this sort of underhandedness,
and now that the FBI is involved Mickey Mouse Loomis
will more than lost draft picks to worry about.
