NFL wants Gregg Williams tapes from filmmaker

Bountygate is the story that just won't die. Ten days ago filmmaker Sean Pamphilon stirred up the hornets nest by releasing an audio tape of then New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams telling his players to injure San Francisco 49ers players before their playoff game in December.

The NFL now wants Pamphilon to shed more light on the scandal and the league wants everything he recorded while he filmed his documentary with ex-Saints player Steve Gleason. Pamphilon told Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports that the league wants a complete look at what was recorded behind closed doors.

“NFL security called four times on Friday. They want the Gregg Williams tapes,” Pamphilon told Silver.

Pamphilon said that he wanted commissioner Roger Goodell "to answer real questions first". No one knows what he means by that and you can read between the lines all you want and still couldn't figure that one out.

Pamphilon added that he has the tapes in "several locations". What is he a drug dealer on the side? He has safe houses for his audio tapes. I can understand that you'll probably go to court to get the league to force them out of your hands, but some of the things he's saying are kind of out there.
