If it weren't for the Vicodin thing, I might be willing to just dismiss this, but that fact makes it harder to do.
People that do shady things don't generally become "unshady" just because they got caught once.
one reason why they might not want this info to come out is that if defenses smelled blood in the water that brees would have an even bigger mark on his chest (or leg). teams pissed at gregg williams for being such a douche and classless coach might try to use his strategies for winning. it's only because no other teams are willing to sink to his levels (yet) that brees is even still walking. it's only a matter of time before someone takes a "late" hit on brees and payton/williams have only themselves to blame if it does. if the saints actually make it to the playoffs this year, that will likely be the time that it happens.
