Patriots Cheating

23 posts in this topic

The Pats were caught stealing the Jets defensive signals. Pretty significant considering they turned a close game into a blowout in the second half.

Maybe there was some truth to the 41-Donut NFC championship game a few years back where Vikings player said the Giants were stealing signals......

It'll be interesting to see what kind of punishment is handed down. I doubt they'll cripple the franchise. John Clayton writes "Other great organizations have paid penalties for violating league rules. The Broncos lost a draft choice for violating the salary cap with John Elway. The Steelers once had to forfeit a third-round draft choice for working out in shoulder pads in the offseason. The Patriots may lose a draft choice or two."

I think a 3rd round pick and 1 game suspension and a $25k fine would be a good deterent to other teams, since thats what it is about. This has been going on for years, nfl looked the other way, either they need to stop it, or let it go as normal and let the teams be more cautious.

1 game suspension? Who would they suspend? The head coach?

Yes the head coach! Its his team, he needs to be held accountable for the rest of his staff!

It all depends on how Goodell sees it. If he feels like this really can hurt the integrity of the game and NFL then he might come down hard. He's been tough so far on players and if he wants to send a message to teams he just might make an example of the Patriots. Maybe loss of a # 1 pick, big fine, maybe a salary cap freeze for one year, suspend head coach. Whatever he decides I am sure the penalty will make a bold statement and any other team doing it or thinking of doing it will stop instantly.

There not going to stop they will just not be so stupid to get caught with it on a Video camera.

This will be interesting the Pats have a past warning from the NFL I'm thinking 1st round pick and $100,000.....

I see a loss draft pick, money? what is a 25,000 fine when you are dealing with 750 mil business. On the other hand the Pats just got caught I would tend to think this is more of a common thing then just the Pats doing it.

For the little bit they will penalize them, they will keep cheating. Too much money to be made. In NASCAR they will penalize a driver or team a 100,000 and it doesnt even start to stop it. Big Business.

Suspend them for the year.

I seen the head coach got 500,000 fine, the team got 250,000 and will lose a 1st round pick next year if they make the playoffs.

I think the fines are right but I think they should lose the 1st rounder regardless if they make the playoffs or not.

If they miss the playoffs they lose a 2nd and 3rd rounder, which is probably even worse than a single first.

Guess coach will not be wearing any new sweat shirts on the sidelines this year... That was a pretty strong statement from the commish. Fine the coach not the team. I'll still wager it will not stop it and am pretty sure the Pats are not the only team looking to gain an edge.

I used to have respect and admiration for how the patriots ran their organization. I would be willing to bet they have video logs of every team. Asterisk them

Formula 1 just fined McLaren $100,000,000 (one hundred MILLION dollars) for stealing information from Ferrari. Makes the NASCAR and NFL fines look like pocket change!

Sounds like the Jets know more. There is a story about the Patriots having microphones on their uniforms. There is talk of another investigation.

Formula 1 just won't give them their share of advertising revenue until it equals $100,000,000.

      I really hope they don't screw this place up. I love it out there and have done a lot of hunting there. I sure wish there were fewer horse trails. It shouldn't be so easy for hunters to access all the woods. That makes it harder to get away from the guys who want to hunt no more than 50 yds from a gravel road.    The dunes seems like a pretty special place to me. DNR does a lot of things that leave is scratching our heads, let's hope they manage this place properly.

      Im staying at Arrowwood July 2-5 and looking to catch some 'eyes for a fish fry or 2. Never been to the area before so I dont have much to go by other than my overall knowledge of Walleye fishing elsewhere. Ill probably be fishing early mornings and dusk for obvious reasons, but also because my boat will be used for the majority of the days for entertaining the girlfriends family. Im open to fishing not only Darling, but Carlos and Le Homme Dieu as well. 

      From what ive read and can see on Google Earth, the lakes are pretty clear, and from experience, usually means tough walleye fishing for this time of year. -I grew up fishing Woman Lake in the Longville/Hackensack area and that lake is as clear as they come. The only way we can snag some 'eyes in the summer is to fish the deep weed lines. Is that the approach I should be taking on these lakes? Does dragging rapalas across mid-lake flats produce? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks,

      Gavin.

      Ha, I've read stories about that lake being filthy. And I know about those warnings on the link you posted I just wonder if this stuff is blown out of proportion. Reason being I can't find any confirmed cases of people having mercury poisoning from eating freshwater fish. I know mercury poisoning does exist but can we really get it from fish? You'd think if we could then there would be cases down south where folks are eating catfish from the Mississippi.    We ate a few 30+" Pike during the ice season, I ate more than my wife, and I only did that from lakes that are safer according to DNR and MDH fish tissue surveys. I kept it to once a week for her and I ate the rest. I went over the one meal a week rule several times for myself, but then went a while without taking home fish while the season was closed. I'm not glowing yet haha.    I also don't understand why walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat per those surveys when Pike are above them on the food chain.

      Surely they have a Terrova on the floor. Doesn't matter what size THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME. Also, boat dealers have showrooms with all kinds of stuff mounted on boats.

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video
