Sean Pamphilon on Drew Brees: “Sacred Cow Allowed to Walk Around and Acting as if he’s Not Even Involved”

June 22, 2012 – 7:30 am by Brad Gagnon

Documentary filmmaker Sean Pamphilon has played a larger-than-expected role in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal. He’s the man who released footage, originally intended for his documentary about former Saint Steve Gleason, of Gregg Williams openly discussing players to target in a team meeting.

Sean Pamphilon joined Josh and Charod on XX 1090 in San Diego to discuss the bounty scandal. But we’ve heard from Pamphilon quite a lot lately — arguably too much. What was really interesting was hearing what he had to say about Drew Brees’ involvement and association with what went down.

On Drew Brees and Scott Fujita neglecting to discuss whether they encouraged him to release his footage:

“You don’t know if they’re standing by it, because they’re ignoring it. Scott briefly addressed it after it came out, but Drew hasn’t owned it at all, and no one’s called him on it. The guy is as Teflon as you can get. And the fact is that when I wanted to release that audio because I felt it was culturally important, as soon as I realized what I had — I had never listened to it — so when I went back and listened to it after the story broke on March 2, I heard it really for the first time … and when I heard it, I was sickened by it. And I lobbied Steve Gleason to release it; he wasn’t having it because he didn’t want to damage his relationship with the Saints. Scott Fujita became involved because he was in one of the shots, so I sent it to him and I solicited his opinion, which is in that essay, which he has completely backed away from, and disavowed. And instead of owning it, he said that, ‘Well, those were texts that shouldn’t have been released, they were personal.’ But the reason why our stuff was released is because after all this happened, those guys all turned away from me and let me get publicly attacked. Drew Brees knew that this stuff existed and he’s continually said that there’s no evidence that the bounty existed. Then why is he on the phone with me two hours before I released the audio, and he’s saying to me ‘I wanna see your essay before this hits the wire’? He was part of it, but he pretends like he’s not. And it’s amazing to me that this sacred cow is allowed to walk around and acting as if he’s not even involved, saying that there’s no evidence. He’s referencing weapons of mass destruction. Well, if there’s nothing to hide and there’s no evidence, then Drew, why are you calling me two hours before it’s released, trying to quote-unquote shape it?”

  2. Why? Sean Pamphilon
    Because Drew Brees is LOYAL to his team
    and you sir would know nothing about
    LOYALTY or INTEGRITY
    You can’t own up to your releasing this tape
    for your few minutes of FAME
    Every one can see your incentives here
    You’re a sick dude
    Oh, wait you took advantage of a sick dude!
    Believe what you want
    There was no BOUNTY PROGRAM
    There was a Pay for Performance Program
    You just need to shut up, man
    and crawl back under that rock you came from
