In response to JRABBB's comment:
Hey check it out-TFB started another thread! That's his 2,416th so far this year!How does he do it?
What makes me sick is how nobody and I mean nobody in NE wants to dicuss the Curse of Spygate! Yes the subject makes me sick to my stomach and I'm sure that you all feel the same way too.
Awesome! I have a stocker on here! Thanks for following me along my football journey on here. Speaking of spygate, it's amazing that since spygate the Patriots have been awesome and that they have made it back to a couple of Super Bowls! In fact, they had a perfect regular season back in 2007. Apparently there isn't a curse of anything, to make it to the super bowl is pretty amazing, let alone 2 more in 5 years after the whole spygate attack.
Oh but wait!! You are saying since they didn't win those 2 Super Bowls then there must be a curse? Oh, you sad little troll. How many teams out there have never made it to the Super Bowl or haven't made it in many, many, many years? LOTS! Amazing how jealous other teams fans are.
Speaking of spygate, check this out... unless of course you are one of those jealous closed minded haters.
In either case, one element of the story remains strangely absent from the discussion. On Feb. 2, 2002, on the eve of Super Bowl XXXVI, on the very same day Walsh was allegedly filming Rams practice, the New York Times
reported that somebody was seen spying on the Patriots as they prepared
for the big game. The most interesting aspect of the story? League officials themselves saw the spy, at least according to the Times story filed by Judy Battista. The key passage from her 2002 report:
"Club and league officials (our emphasis) said a telescope was clearly visible in the window, according to a pool report, and that 15 minutes later, a person appeared at the window, and then vanished."
