There you go again. Show me one ONE 1 statement where anyone in the Saints** organizations admits to being a part of or knowing about a bounty program. Please find it and post it but if you can't please come back and admit you were were wrong in making these statements.
As it relates to Saints** G.M. Mickey Loomis, the most troubling aspect of the league’s announcement regarding the team’s bounty system comes in two sentences: “Mr. Benson advised league staff that he had directed his general manager, Mickey Loomis, to ensure that any bounty program be discontinued immediately. The evidence showed that Mr. Loomis did not carry out Mr. Benson’s directions.”
New Orleans Saints** Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis release a statement on bounty scandal
New Orleans Saints** coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis issued a joint statement on the bounty scandal:
We acknowledge that the violations disclosed by the NFL during their investigation of our club happened under our watch. We take full responsibility.
This has brought undue hardship on Mr. Benson, who had nothing to do with this activity. He has been nothing but supportive and for that we both apologize to him.
These are serious violations and we understand the negative impact it has had on our game. Both of us have made it clear within our organization that this will never happen again, and make that same promise to the NFL and most importantly to all of our fans.

Gregg Williams issues a statement on the New Orleans Saints** bounty scandal
Former New Orleans Saints** defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who is now with the St. Louis Rams, issued a statement after the NFL levied the punishment against the Saints** and him today.
"I'd like to again apologize wholeheartedly to the NFL, Coach Fisher, the entire Rams organization and all football fans for my actions. Furthermore, I apologize to the players of the NFL for my involvement as it is not a true reflection of my values as a father or coach, nor is it reflective of the great respect I have for this game and its core principle of sportsmanship. I accept full responsibility for my actions. I highly value the 23 years that I've spent in the NFL. I will continue to cooperate fully with the league and its investigation and I will focus my energies on serving as an advocate for both player safety and sportsmanship. I will do everything possible to re-earn the respect of my colleagues, the NFL and its players in hopes of returning to coaching in the future."
