bdaddy, read the paper or watch the t.v. before you shoot your mouth off. The commisioner and league officials who watched the tape all stated that what they saw on the tape would not have given the Patriots any real eadge. The fines and punishment were for diobeying the commish's orders. littlelebowski- same as above. open your eyes and read what I wrote. I never said that anyone was stupid for anything. I don't stoop to personal attacks like you. I also never mentioned that an undefeated season would somehow let this team and it's coach off the hook. I joined this thread and site looking for real sports fans. I found a group of pompous, self-important idiots. I won't be back.

Anyone who watched the Pats-Chargers game Sunday night was treated to actual footage from the tape in question; aired by NBC. They also showed the legal espionage that takes place in every game with massive printers kicking out numerous photos of the other squads alignments and formations. What really happened here is that the commisioner drew his own personal line in the sand of what he felt was 'going too far' and Belicheck crossed it. The edge gained by the Pats or anyone else doing this (and there are others) is minimal if anything. The asskicking that they put on the Chargers with the league and the world watching proves that the Pats don't need it. The real issue is Mangini being a big pussy tattletale. He opened a can of worms. The other coaches and teams are lucky Belicheck is as quiet as he is. Jimmy Johnson mentioned that this type of thing was done when he coached (18 years ago!).
