Former New Orleans Saint Steve Gleason released a statement to nola.com regarding the leaked Gregg Williams' audio the night before a playoff game.

Gleason, a Saints legend who is suffering from ALS, was being filmed by documentary filmmaker Sean Pamphilon.

Pamphilon released the recording of Williams' defensive team meeting without Gleason's permission or approval.

"I did not authorize the public release of any recordings," explained Gleason. "A multitude of feelings have passed through me. I feel deflated and disappointed. I feel frustrated and distracted."

Pamphilon claims he released the audio for altruistic reasons, explaining that he only did it because he felt ethically obliged.

Isn't it unethical to release private recordings that he only gained access to by filming a documentary about a man who is dying from ALS?
