What we know about the bounty paper towel investigation

In December 2017, the NHL and the NHL Players’ Association announced that a group of players and coaches had been found guilty of a bounty paper baggate scandal.

The players and players’ association had previously denied any involvement with the bounty.

The investigation was launched by NHLPA president Donald Fehr, the head of the union representing players, and former NHL player Chris Pronger, who is now a lawyer for the NHLPA.

Players and coaches have been charged with defrauding the league of $40 million by lying about being paid by the city of St. Louis to protect an NHL franchise in exchange for an extra season of games.

In a statement issued at the time, Fehr called the alleged bounty scheme a “huge scam.”

He called the investigation a “big-time, big-money investigation.”

The NFL’s response to the allegations was swift and comprehensive, saying it “strongly disagrees” with the allegations, that it has a zero-tolerance policy on bounty payments and that the NHL will cooperate fully in the probe.

The NFL said the team had been aware of the allegations for some time.

“Our players and staff are deeply concerned by the allegations made in the complaint and are taking them very seriously,” the NFL said in a statement.

“The NFL has zero tolerance for wrongdoing, and we have made it a priority to fully cooperate with the NHL investigation.”

In a joint statement, the players and the NFL Players Association said they “deeply disagree with the accusations made in this lawsuit and we will vigorously defend our rights in court.”

The players’ union said it would continue to pursue a lawsuit against the city and its officials, but declined to elaborate.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York by a New York man, Christopher R. Wittenberg, who claims he was part of a group that paid St. Paul Saints general manager Dean Lombardi $400,000 to protect a franchise in order to keep it from going under.

The suit says Wittenberger paid $40,000 in cash to be paid in kind.

In March 2018, the Saints and the league announced they had reached an agreement to settle the lawsuit.

The agreement includes a $10 million settlement, which was part paid by Wittenbros lawyer.

The settlement came amid mounting public pressure on the NFL and the Saints to step down.

The league said it was “disappointed” with a number of aspects of the settlement, including the timing of the deal, which it said would have created a “new legal landscape” for the case.

The Saints and NFL declined to comment.
