Lets be honest

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Spygate was over the videotaping of coaching signals during a game, and if I remember correctly, one of the sticking points was that had they been videotaping from just a few feet ...

Re: Lets be honest

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Spygate was over the videotaping of coaching signals during a game, and if I remember correctly, one of the sticking points was that had they been videotaping from just a few feet over, they wouldn't have been in violation?

It was pretty cut & dry, they have specific rules on where you can film from and NE violated that. Had they been within the specified boundries, no one would have known they were filming coaching signals.

That's the big difference between Spygate & Bountygate, the NFL had a specific rule and undeniable evidence to proceed with in Spygate, they're flying by the seat of their pants in Bountygate ... <sigh> ... I told myself I wouldn't talk about it anymore, .

Correct. Had the person in the circle in this photo been a few feet back, in the front row of the stands, there would have been nothing illegal about it. But whatever the rule, Spygate was based on FACT (the photo above, and the seized videotape) whereas Bountygate was based on heresay and second hand evidence and speculation from the very beginning. Major difference that few people outside of Saints fans seem to realize.

Please explain how "fans from OTHER teams" are not biased? I am sure your talking about unbiased Falcons fans right?


Not just falcons fans, other teams fans too. Yes falcons fans do like to make their opinions known on the bigger boards.

It's rigged. Tagliabue will never go against the guy that sucked his b*lls growing up (RG).

Lol
Falcons fans were used as an example. In regards to the Saints, falcons fans are the worst, although not the only. I'm very aware there are 30 other teams.
