In response to patsbandwagonsince76's comment:
The league screwed up.
It has tarnished its own image and essentially created a sub class of 'spygate morons' who feel they can deflect all their personal problems, frustrations and failures onto the NE Patriots.
They needs to make an outward statement and apologize for making a penalty way disproportionate to the infraction and mention they suspected all teams of doing this but wanted to set an example. Now they feel it might have been too heavy handed and unfairly stigmatizes one franchise and its fans.
I see you can't accept responsibility either!
Fact is BB messed in the lunch kit. The league caught him the SAME SEASON they made it a point to notify all teams about this issue. You're insanely blaming the judge for the sentence after the perp was specifically told NOT to do what he did. Try out your philosophy on your teen when they do this. I'll guarandamntee you that you'll think differently.
When you put yourself in the cross hairs, don't blame anyone else but yourself.
You are right about the penalty at the time...if that was only the end of it. The penalty was harsh but fair and BB was a bit arrogant to get into it anyway. Usually when there is a harsh penalty though people move on and forgive, look at bountygate...could argue a much worse infraction...but it is really never mentioned anymore.
But no one in the NFL off suspected this would carry on so long and so many would take it out of context. and infact not bother to know the real story.
It is like people voting in the national election without caring to know about any issues or candidates.
No one knew it would create such a seemingly permanent group of riteous haters that use it to justify all their own teams shortcomings and wrongdoings.
My point is it went in a bad direction here 6 years later and hurts the NFL. they should clean it up.
