Sean Pamphilon, a documentary filmmaker, released a statement Saturday saying the he and former New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason “have a production agreement that I have followed”, according to the Associated Press. Pamphilon released a recording earlier this week where former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams can be heard telling his players to inflict intentional harm on specific opponents.
For his part, Gleason said Friday that the recording should not have been released.
“I can’t understand why Steve would think it’s in his best interest to prevent me from releasing the truth about Gregg Williams,” Pamphilon wrote. “I feel as strongly today as I have from the beginning that the audio speaks for itself and that the public had a right to hear it.” Williams has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL.
