New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis, had an illegal eavesdropping device that allowed him to listen to real-time playcalls of opposing coaches during the 2002-2004 seasons... However, if there's a hunt of truth to this, Loomis' eavesdropping would make Bill Belichick's Spygate controversy seem quaint, like the Pats coach was a kid with two cans and some string. His tapes showed hand signals being made in full view of fans and cameras. They were illegal because the NFL said so. Loomis' actions would be illegal because the US government says so.
