Criminal charges for the Saints?

Recommended Posts



I've often wondered why Dusty Rhoades never brought criminal charges against the 4 Horsemen for breaking his arm in the parking lot.

That explains a lot.

Regardless of whether the money came from legal or illegal activities, the money received by players represents income. And if income isn’t disclosed to the IRS, that’s a problem.

Go ahead and scoff. That’s surely what the NBA officials who traded first-class airfare for coach and kept the difference and didn’t pay taxes on it believed. Before they were prosecuted for tax evasion.

The NFL already has the evidence. The IRS needs merely to show up with a warrant for the file.

And if so inclined, the IRS can launch an investigation regarding the other 31 teams. While Saints players and other employees opted initially to lie to the NFL, lying to federal authorities has entails slightly greater consequences.

Go ahead and scoff. That’s surely what Martha Stewart did.

Charges for tax evasion (definitely credible here) versus charges for assault (high school hyperbole) are totally different. I do find both very funny, though. :lol:

I dunno.

As a fellow attorney, I was both entertained and educated by that article. I think the author hit pretty much every possible legal scenario that could take place due to this "pay-for-injury" scheme.

A lot depends on what evidence exists for what payments were made. I would honestly be shocked if the Saints didn't end up firing a good deal of their coaching staff and firing some players.
