[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Fakegate : UUmm, what? What is your IQ? 6? Do you know why he destroyed the evidence and the stuff Matt Walsh showed us showed Goodell the same material, except we likley saw Walsh's material chosen by Goodell? Are you smart enough to put that together, professor? How about we saw Denver get off for a slap on the wrist for two deceitful salary cap seasons in 1997 and 1998, where they mysteriously signed every top flight FA they needed to help their team over a 16 game season. And then we hear all former NFL coaches support BB and now start to see it was in fact what many thought all along: A personal feud between two teams gone haywire and the media pressuring Goodell to act. This means we have a "guilty conscience"? Get to class much? It means we are ticked off for Goodell not understanding his own rules and letting the media dictate a punishment. That's what it means. Read it and weep, tool: 12/3/10 98.5 Sports Radio Bill Cowher: " You know, let me just say this: To answer your question about if it's "cheating", no, I don’t think so. I just know as a head coach, you are always looking for a competitive edge. We had people out there trying to look at signals. We had guys go to games. They would tape the signal caller and also write it down. They would take it back and match up the signals with the game film and certain defenses with certain plays that were being called, particularly the defenses being called, to see if we could come up with some kind of an alert for a signal. So, what they did with videotaping the signal caller, people do it with the people in the stands!! These people sitting there in the stands, looking at the signal, writing it down and matching up the 1 st and 10 signal. Ok? Then you go back again and the 2 nd and 10 and here’s the signal. You do that for a whole game. You then go back and match up the defenses with the signal. And you can come up with what the signal was. So, you don;’t need a video tape with what they were talking about doing. And people were doing it. WE were doing that. Everybody does that. You’re TRYING to gain a competitive edge. There is nothing wrong with that. That’s why baseball players go through the mirage of signals. They’ve got all these different codes. That’s part of the competitive spirit of the game. I think it’s totally overblown. I think if you get caught (signals compromised), then do what we did and go to wristbands, you are worried about it. We started putting defenses on wristbands. Then you find a way to not get caught (signals compromised). When your good at something and people try steal from ya, I think it’s flattering."

Yeah, you are clearly not sensitive to the insinuation that Pats fans are overly sensitive about Spygate. LOL!!
It was the media's fault.... OK. Really you make my point for me. Look at the difference in penalties for the 98 Broncos and the Spygate Pats. Clearly the league thought whatever the Patriots did was far more severe. Or it was just the media and everyone is out to get the Pats, in which case we can add a persecution complex to your insecurity complex.
What do the Patriots and Tiger Woods have in common?
They both haven't won since they got caught cheating.
