ESPN's Saints, Mickey Loomis Case Looms No Evidence of Eavesdropping
 

saints-runESPN's story on Mickey Loomis allegedly eavesdropping on opposing coaches, hasn't yet produced evidence and Loomis should be in the clear. He may also have some legal issues with ESPN.



Back in 1962, Bear Bryant denounced the Saturday Evening Post for printing an article that charged him with encouraging his players to "engage in brutality" in a 1961 game against Georgia Tech.

The magazine claimed that Bryant and Georgia coach Wally Butts had conspired to fix their their 1962 together in Alabama's favor. Butts, also on Brant's behalf, sued Curtis Publishing Co. for defamation. The case went before the Supreme Court. As a result of Curtis Publishing Co. vs. Butts 388 U.S.130 (1967). Curtis was ordered tto pay $3,060,000 in damages to the plaintiff.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.
