In Response to Re: Spygate or Saints worse
[QUOTE]In response to "Re: Spygate or Saints worse": Goon? There is no reason for name calling here, unless thats your plan to win the debate. But you are right...there havent been seven SB since Spygate broke, but youre alsowrong because there havent been four either. There have been five SB since Spygate broke in Sept 2007. And for the record the wiining teams were the NYGiants, Pittsburgh Steelers, NO Saints, GB Packers, and NY Giants. Regardless, my point still stands, pre-Spygate the Pariots played in 3 out of 6 SBs (including one nearly Brady-free season) and were 3 - 0 in these games. Since Spygate, the Patriots have not won a SB, and are 0-2. Posters here are genrally quick to suggest cause and effect...maybe this is a cause for such consideration.... God bless, Pezz

You are right sir, there were 5. Wrote that before I had my Cheerios.
How ever your cause and effect theory is entirely off base.
If they had totally tanked since 2007, you might have a point, however, the Pats Are the winningest team in football, since that time.
You're theory of losing in 2 games would also have to apply to the other 80+ games they played. (not just the play-offs).
Did taping from the wrong spot on the field only account for post season wins?
You do know that taping is legal, right? Teams are required to provide the other team a place to do that if they so desire.
You do know that there is nothing in the books in the NFL, that says you can't steal signals, don't you? If not, show me the bi-law that says stealing signals is prohibited. You can't because there isn't one.
You do know that you can get the same info from studying coaches tapes, don't you. They can just as easily figure tendacies due to formations and circumstance especially since it is digitally done now with computers. All you have to do is click a button. Every team has the capability and does do this.
BB was punished for breaking a rule that in the history of the NFL had never been enforced before, even though it is well known that it was common practice with some of the "old school Coaches" , who prefer video tape to the newer computer technology, even though the newer method is actually more benificial.
