Because when Big Tobacco did it they thought they could get away with it and left the paper trail - during the past half-century IMO organizations recognize litigation is always a factor and manage their operations accordingly. Perlman knew who was paying him without having to be told what to conclude.

There might be an e-mail trail out there but maybe not - the NFL is not that large an organization and it is a lot easier to "educate" a smaller organization on appropriate
"document retention" practices

Plus in this case it is as if the smokers were employees of Phillip Morris - everyone is part of the same hypocrisy
