In response to rtuinila's comment:
Oh, I forgot to mention, though I doubt anyone remembers, the Pats were penalized for the insubordination of ignoring the memo, not for cheating. Goodell was forced (probably by the owners) to appear on national TV and state "the Patriots DID NOT CHEAT". They were being punished for "Ignoring the memo we sent out at the beginning of training camp". And since the Pats did ignore the memo, what is there really to vacate?
The problem is, with Walsh's lies and proven lies later with showing nothing different than what any team had on file in their facilities, the media perpetuated that into something tied to only NE due to their disdain for BB.
Anyone who is honesy and looked into the witch hunt knows the flaws, but if you ask any Tom, Dick or Harry off the street, usually fans jealous or looking for excuses as to why their organization is inferior, they cast away the facts and truth.
So, it really doesn't matter. The court of public opinion was shaped by a rabid anti-BB media.
The best question the media could EVER ask is if Taglibue would have EVER punished NE as much as Goodell did. The answer to that is no, and I can guarantee it would have been handled far more methodically than how Goodell handled the Jets-induced Spygate with an assist from the media.
So... I agree with you. you're basically agreeing with me that a colossal injustice occurred. so... Lay down like weenies or spread word and get people to understand it...?
Really understand most peoples distaste for controversy and confrontation. Easier to get fed wht uask4 I suppose... Never understood that. I really like to expose, confront, outsmart, belittle, etc. People that try to get away with crap that is wrong. W.r.o.n.g. for those unable to spell it. Hate to be repetitive but let's use jintsy and leon for examples. These NY dinks deserve the most extreme treatment ever conceived for a sportsfan for the obnoxious, juvenile posture on this board which serves no purpose except to insult its members ...
Ok.. So to sum this up ... Fill in the blanks people.
