08:02 AM ET 04.11 | As with many cover-ups, attempts at finding the truth are bound to leak. When author and filmmaker Alan Donnes did an interview with America's Radio News Network, he revealed something that Saints fans have wondered about since news first broke of the bounty scandal: the whistleblower. "Will I get shot through the phone if I say it?" Donnes joked. "Based on my sources, and I believe they're very good, it's former defensive quality control coach Mike Cerullo," Donnes finally announced. Donnes covers the team and wrote a book about them titled, "Patron Saints." He claimed Cerullo became disgruntled, was let go after the Saints 2009 Super Bowl run and has had trouble getting work every since.
