ESPN could not determine if the system was ever used. The report
on Monday's "Outside the Lines" says Loomis would have been able
to eavesdrop on opponents from 2002 to 2004. The report says the

Saints spokesman Greg Bensel calls the report "1000 percent
false." Bensel says the Saints and Loomis "are seeking all legal
recourse" following the report.
FBI spokeswoman Sheila Thorne says the agency's New Orleans
office is aware of the allegations, but wouldn't comment further.
