The thing was that Goodell had just passed out the memo that there was no more filming the other teams bench, and then shortly after, BB got caught.
It's like the tuck rule. I live in SF and most of my friends, no all of my friends are Raider fans and everyone of them claim to have studied the film over and over and over. Each one says Brady's arm was going back, when if you look at the film, if anything he was bringing the ball in to his abs. He may have had 2 hands on the ball, but never had possession.
When you tell these fans about AFC title game vs the Raiders in 1977, where the ball was at the Pats 12 with seconds remaining, when Hamilton got called for roughing the passer when he was airborne before Stabler let go of the ball (not even today would that be called), they don't care at all. They won and that is all that matters.
But the tuck rule game, they still had the lead, could have stopped the Pats in OT if they could have played D, and Lincoln Kennedy knew the Raiders would lose after the call. We all know the Pats would have stepped up after the call if it had been the other way around.
They (all) think the league is against them, like many fans here, though they take it to another level.
Calls for them that were obviously wrong calls are ok, but against them is wrong.
Most fans here appreciate great play, at least the older fans, but so many other fans want all the calls, and b@tch about those against them.
