Found this on the Bills site I post on:

Belicheck had a press conference, listen to this, BB refused to talk about the scandal about cheating etc and here was his response:

Bill Belichek: "Does anyone want to talk about the upcoming game?"
Reporter: "Is it going to be harder to score on San Diego without knowing their defensive signals?"

Bill's response: Blank stare!!!!

Priceless!!!! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I have no more respect for the Pats.

Thats an article from Sports Illustrated.


They have been doing this since 2000!!!!

Smooth criminals
Patriots bring cheating in the NFL into modern era

Sure, people cheat in sports. In baseball they steal signals. In football they bring in a guy for a week, someone who was just cut by the team they're going to play, pump him for information and let him go on Monday. They'll even plant spies at each other's practices.

But the things that make this Patriots flap so bothersome are the following:

Aw. As if you had respect for them before this. :rolleyes:

This will intensify rivalries. Current rivals will hold this dear as yet another reason to hate the Patriots. Patriot fans, while non-plussed by the possibility of losing a draft pick, are more upset at getting caught than the crime itself.

I'm in that camp myself. I think the biggest crime the Pats are guilty of is being incredibly, incredibly stupid about how blatant they were about the whole thing. Every team tries to steal signals. You just can't be idiotically blatant about it, which the Pats did and deserve to be punished for it.

Well, I for one, just hate the Pats. But being a Colts fan that should be obvious. ;) :P

Did root for them against the Eagles in the Super Bowl, only because Eagles fans at my job are worse.

Its a level of cheating that will likely cost them a draft pick. :noclue:

It's not too late to embrace the Blue Shoe, Don!

We'll just start you off on a P. Manning film/commercial mental programming. MakingLetting you watch all his commercials for 48 hours straight.

Then, you are strapped, umm, seated in a nice comfy chair listening to Dungy's new book on audio book version for 24 hrs straight.

Finally, as a droolingfanatic new Colts fan, you can impress all your friends by constantly mimicking Manning's checks at the line before a snap.

Come over to the Shoe. :dizzy: Manning is your friend. :dizzy:

Gonna love that smiley :rolleyes:


What's ironic is..True, I never liked the Pats.Same goes for the Ravens,Bengals.But I respected those teams, after I took more maturity about the defeat back in the AFC Championship back in 2004-2005, I thought they were the smartest team in the NFL, the team ala the Devils.Good coachs changes, when they draft, they always seems to get the best player available ect...


I think the Pats have to pay for what they did, Though, those signals sure helped the Pats, and even, you can't deny the fact that the Pats had a talented team since B.B came as the Head Coach(Minus 2000-2001..)




But at this moment, I don't respect the Pats. Nono,.

Patriots and Colts are the two teams I go looking for on Sunday. And if they play at the same time, I PVR one and try to avoid looking at the score ticker at the bottom.

The NFL has decided the penelties to the Pats
NFL throws the book at the Pats. If they make the playoffs (duh) they lose a 1st round pick. If not, its a 2nd and 3rd.
Belicheck fined $500,000
Patriots fined 250,00

What good would that do really, he's already put together the game plan. I do agree it would have been nice to see a two-week or more suspension in there down the road. It is kind of hard to actually enforce the suspension though unless the NFL puts an ankle bracelet on him or something :P

Can't complain about the rest of it, the draft pick(s) do send a message as does the personal fine. The team fine should be a bit higher, especially after what that Formula One team got for spying :lol: Then again the Patriots would probably just defray the cost off on increased ticket prices and concessions anyway.

I agree, although I think it should be more along the lines of 4 or 5 games. This is a serious infirngement on the integrity of the game. I like that Goodell gave him the maximum fine allowed and is stripping the Cheatriots of draft picks, but I really think a suspension is in order here.

Suspending him wouldnt do anything. The assitant coaches would be able to get it done without him. Giving him the fine was much better IMO.

Ersch, I don't think so any Coachs, Fans outside of NE respect them anymore.

Dear Pats..

Pretty soon, it might be easier just to list the teams that aren't accusing the Patriots of cheating.

The latest accusations of Patriot treachery come from the Bengals and the Lions, who, according to Paul Zimmerman of Sports Illustrated, both say that the headsets in their quarterbacks' helmets suspiciously malfunctioned at the worst possible times during games at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.:

"At one point we had a good drive going against the Patriots," said one Lion who doesn't want his name involved in this mess, but was willing to talk about it. "Mike Martz really had 'em going. They were getting fouled up, lining up wrong, we were moving the ball. Then boom, the headset from the sidelines to the coaches' booth goes out.

"Next possession we were moving the ball again and the same thing happened. You know it only takes two or three plays to mess up a drive."

Matt Millen, the Lions' GM, was talking to Bengals' coach Marvin Lewis at the league meetings. He started telling him the story.

"Yeah, I know," Lewis said. "Headset went out. It happened to me in Foxboro, too."

There is talk that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will announce the Patriots' punishment as soon as tomorrow, but he should take his time and investigate all of these claims. If the Patriots are sabotaging the opposing team's methods of communications, that may be an even bigger scandal than stealing signs.



This isn't helping your case.
