SAINTS' GM MICKEY LOOMIS EAVESDROPPED ON OPPOSING COACHES' COMMUNICATIONS DURING GAMES, REPORT CLAIMS (http://www.nj.com/sports/index.ssf/2012/04/saints_gm_mickey_loomis_eavesd.html)

"Saints general manager <a href="http://espn.go.com/espn/otl/story/_/id/7846290/new-orleans-saints-mickey-loomis-eavesdrop-opposing-coaches-home-games">Mickey
Loomis eavesdropped on the radio communications of opposing coaches</a> during
games over stretches of three seasons, an ESPN.com report said today.<div class="entry-content">


The ESPN.com report states that Loomis, who is facing an eight-game
suspension from the NFL for his role in the Saints' bounty program, used an
electronic device to listen in on opposing coaches from his suite during part of
the 2002 season and all of the 2003 and 2004 seasons.</p>


Loomis' alleged actions have been reported to the U.S. Attorney's Office in
the Eastern District of Louisiana, the report states. Loomis' use of an
electronic device to listen in on others could be in violation of the federal
Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986, which prohibits the use of
electronic devises to monitor or intercept the communications of others.</p>


Loomis' alleged actions would also be a violation of NFL rules. <a href="https://twitter.com/#%21/greggrosenthal/status/194514762359504896">NFL
spokesman Greg Aiello told NFL.com today</a> that the league has "no knowledge
of the allegations" against Loomis."</p></div>

Here we go again. How long will it take Brees to say this isn't so....

At some point, Benson has got to clean house if these types of allegations keep surfacing.
