Saints GM Mickey Loomis Facing Eavesdropping Accusations
As if things could not get worse for New Orleans Saints fans, an ESPN report says General Manager Mickey Loomis is now accused of having an electronic device in his suite at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome that allowed him to eavesdrop on opposing coaches for three seasons.
The report quotes sources familiar with Saints game-day operations. The sources say the eavesdropping occurred between the 2002-2004 seasons. The alleged eavesdropping stopped after Hurricane Katrina disabled the wiring system in 2005.
Saints Vice President of Communications Greg Bensel says the accusations are "1,000 percent false...1,000 percent inaccurate."
