Unconfirmed BS is what that is. He said she said crap. I hope no one here buys into that. Remember bountygate? No one believed anything we said no matter how right we were. Dont fall for it.

Re: Report: Patriots sent employees into locker rooms to steal play sheets

My suspicion is that this is the NFL releasing chaff to distract everyone from the fact that Goodell had his butt handed to him one more time, this time by a judge, no less.

All indications are that Goodell is an idiot/puppet. Does anyone really believe that he could do those boneheaded things and still have a job unless 1) he had the blessing of the owners or 2) he had tape or video incriminating the owners in some serious ****e.

Could it be that the system is rigged?

Re: Report: Patriots sent employees into locker rooms to steal play sheets

Meh, it's still EntertainmentSportsNetwork, no matter how "in-depth" they think they've gone, #shrug. Whomever prepared this statement for the Patriots did one helluva' job, IMO.

Originally Posted by CBSBoston
... In response to the report and its many allegations against the Patriots for their alleged systematic recording of opponents’ signals, the team released a statement. Here it is in full:

“The New England Patriots have never filmed or recorded another team’s practice or walkthrough. The first time we ever heard of such an accusation came in 2008, the day before Super Bowl XLII, when the Boston Herald reported an allegation from a disgruntled former employee. That report created a media firestorm that extended globally and was discussed incessantly for months.

“It took four months before that newspaper retracted its story and offered the team a front and back page apology for the damage done. Clearly, the damage has been irreparable. As recently as last month, over seven years after the retraction and apology was issued, ESPN issued the following apology to the Patriots for continuing to perpetuate the myth: ‘On two occasions in recent weeks, SportsCenter incorrectly cited a 2002 report regarding the New England Patriots and Super Bowl XXXVI. That story was found to be false, and should not have been part of our reporting. We apologize to the Patriots organization.’

“This type of reporting over the past seven years has led to additional unfounded, unwarranted and, quite frankly, unbelievable allegations by former players, coaches and executives. None of which have ever been substantiated, but many of which continue to be propagated. The New England Patriots are led by an owner whose well-documented efforts on league-wide initiatives – from TV contracts to preventing a work stoppage – have earned him the reputation as one of the best in the NFL.

“For the past 16 years, the Patriots have been led by one of the league’s all-time greatest coaches and one of its all-time greatest quarterbacks. It is disappointing that some choose to believe in myths, conjecture and rumors rather than giving credit for the team’s successes to Coach Belichick, his staff and the players for their hard work, attention to detail, methodical weekly preparation, diligence and overall performance.”

If only there were 31 other teams we could talk about until the season starts... Oh well. Guess I'll just go read about the Braves' 84th loss of the season instead.

Re: Report: Patriots sent employees into locker rooms to steal play sheets

Sounds SUSPICIOUSLY a lot like the "anonymous source" Loomis wiretapping BS to me. As in, people with grudges start to pile on. The league loves it because it murkies up the waters. Probably even the same exact shabby reporting crew that was behind the wiretapping BS. Goodell will be sending Outside The Lines a Christmas card.
