Is anyone surprised that this more than 1 game? They probably have been doing this for a long time.
While they might have been the only ones taping the signs, it's not like other teams didn't steal signs. I mean it's just totally blown out of proportion in my opinion.
Last season the Green Bay Packers kicked a guy off the sidelines that was taping the Green Bay sidelines, he happened to be the same one that got caught against the Jets.
Taping an opposing teams practice is a HUGE ethical violation. Stealing signs is one thing, but this is something totally different!
this is a walk through people. They allowed media to watch and record. It's their own fault. I hate the patriots but your hearing old players come out and say they pushed the envelope too. The Rams seemed to always know what the defense was going to do also.
It is a small world if people think that tapes are not being made of practices and then sold to the opponents. They cannot even get to the bottom of HGH. With this much money at stake, cheats will be popping up all over. Playbooks will be bought and resold.
I remember the U S built an embaassy in Moscow fifteen years ago for several hundred million dollars and basically had to tear it down because so many listenng devices had been planted in the concrete work nby the local workers. Briberies are common buiness practice in most other countries. Watergate happeneed even though Nixon wa a shoo-in. And that was the president of the US. Cheating will happen no matter how many good guys are out there.
The Patriots are about ready to go undefeated for only the second time in history. With that you can expect everyone and anyone to over scrutinize(sp) any thing they can to find out how they have an unfair advantage. I'm sure there is illegal performance drugs in their gatorade and steel reenforcements in their pads that is the only reason they are undefeated........sarcasm,,,,,,sarcasm.
I'm not a huge Patriots fan either, but this spygate crap is getting old. If they win tonight, and the chances are very good, then they are the greatest football team in history and I'll be happy for no other reason then it shuts up the 73 Dolphins who have been whining and crying this season.
The same people calling for Barry Bonds' head on a platter should demand the same of Bellicheck and the Patriots. Cheating is cheating. In fact Bellicheck and the Patriots improprieties is even worse. They were caught cheating in Game 1. Should have been a forfeit and Bellicheck suspended for at least a year or more. Put some teeth in it. These guys have bent the rules for a long time.
this win must have an *. lol
As someone said, if nothing happens at a walk through, why would you tape it?
