 All of this is getting tiresome.  Had the Saints not lied to NFL when the initial investigation began, they would not find themselves stuck in this mess.  The Lie-Lie-DENY tactics that they are using serves them no benefit whatsoever.
From ProFootballTalk:
“Today I had a great conversation with the Commissioner and stated I would sign a sworn affidavit to this fact, or make myself available to take a lie detector, to immediately rectify this matter,” Vitt said.  “Also it cannot be emphasized enough, none of our players, particularly those who are facing suspensions, ever crossed the white line with the intent to injure an opponent.  I am proud of our players and stand behind them 100% and will do whatever I can to help restore their good names.

“I maintain my pledge to the Commissioner to be an agent of change in helping to find new ways and practices to make our game safer for all players and I look forward to more constructive conversations with the league on this matter.”
