As you probably already know, Jason Cole is reporting that the league has a copy of a ledger in which the Saints defense recorded their bounty payouts game-by-game.  Pretty amazing evidence if it does exist.  An unnamed source has it.  We can’t see it.  And names haven’t been released, although some games have been identified by sources who aren’t sure exactly what game we’re referring to here, anyway.

It just keeps getting more ridiculous, doesn’t it?

The story changed: now we’re told that the Panthers game on November 8, 2009 was the big three-payout event. Problem? Only one player was injured, a linebacker.
