Here is a thought, maybe the idea of taping was so that they could review it, watch game film to evaluate the schemes and see if they could pick something up in a future game maybe not at all intended for the present game. But then again Bill is a genius and I am sure he has figured out a way to get the taped information deciphered before the play is called relayed to Sir Tom after the play has been called and before the mics are turned off - unless of course Bill can talk to Sir Tom up until the snap of the ball - is that legal, maybe Sir Tom has a hidden speaker or another player WITHOUT the GREEN dot has one imbedded and they can converse all the way up until the snap of the ball, we could always check with homeland security to make sure.

This is in a sport where the offense calls in the plays through a headset, why is that? Maybe, just maybe because they figured out that the plays were being stolen from the otherside, oh and now they cover their mouth as they call the play through the headset, I wonder if that is so that the person listening can hear them better or if it is because they think maybe someone is able to read lips. Given all that, all this has to be done in 25 seconds or less. Every sport is always trying to figure out what the other side is doing, how much does it affect the game who knows - but I am willing to bet it does not change it as much as a dumbass ref blowing the whistle in the end zone at the end of a game and making a call that even his mother knew was wrong and if that was not bad enough he called another call that even my mother knew was wrong! Like the Pats or hate the Pats this is not that big of deal!

Bonds should be the holder of the record, period, no asterisk. He hasn’t been officially charged with cheating and he hasn’t come out and said he did. I always wonder why certain “cheats” are looked upon as ok. I do not recall baseball taking away “all” the wins for those pitchers that have been caught with an emery board, they didn’t take away “all” of Brett’s hits up until the point where he was caught with too much pine tar and how about those guys that are too dehydrated to play, they go in get an IV and then they come back to play – their body said no more, but the doctor said yes you can and here you go, why is ok to use this method to “alter” (cheat) their body’s performance.
