Arlen Specter was on Stern's show today, and said there was strong evidence that the Pats had somehow obtained the Steelers plays. Not sure if it was linked to those tapes (which allowing the Pats to destroy was straight up bullshit by the way) or not, but it still explains a lot, doesn't it?

Kind of sad really. But whatever, they can Play Joey Porter twice a year for the next 3 or 4 seasons and see how funny he thinks it is.

i can remember hines saying "it was like they knew what we where running" so bet there was some kind of offense involved.

Point being, they cheated, and no one will ever know just how deep the rabbit hole went.

Assuming they can't cheat anymore, 10-6 next year, maybe 11-5. They still have some talent, so...

I dunno...the QB has a radio in his helmet so there shouldn't have been any signals for them to steal. I figured Spygate was more about taping defensive signals.

You're right, unfortunately. The evidence is long gone, Beliprick* and Kraft got their hands slapped and that was the end of it.

Hines probably meant it as a DEF or a whole team, when he said "we".

It doesn't matter, Specter needs to just let it go, IMHO.

The Steelers aren't getting two more AFC Championships and the Eagles aren't getting awarded a Super Bowl.

In the court of public opinion, those three Lombardi Trophies are tarnished to the point they cannot be cleaned. Nobody will ever know how deep the cheating truly went. And the Patriots will be looked at by everyone who isn't a fan of them as frauds.

Um, that would be spelling police, not grammar police. However, when changing thought within a sentence, it is best to separate with punctuation. In the above sentence, a semicolon would be best.

What qualifies as "indefensible" is relative. On the Seahawks boards, I'm sure, the legitimacy of the Steelers recent super bowls qualifies as "the indefensible" (as absurd as it may seem). In fact, some of the most factual, logical, well put together arguments cannot stand up to the incessant "Nah-ah!". And when it comes to something as inconclusive and interpretable as the extent of the advantageousness of a rule violation, then everyone's opinion is equally legitimate and equally indefensible.

Funny, I don't remember any record fines being levied against the Steelers for the wins in SB XL and SB XLIII that are only "disputed" by a bunch of crybabies who don't understand the rules of the game.

I don't recall the Steelers with a camera man on the opponents sideline stealing signals.Why is it that the Steelers home communications seem to work during the whole game and not "cutting out" at inopportune times for the opponent.

Yeah, in fact, the officials themselves came out and said their calls, after careful review, were legit. The league issued no apologies. There is not even any smoke, let alone fire,other than sour grapes from some fans who know little about football. Seattle whining <<< Patriots caught, covered for, and still heavily penalized...

You're gonna have to do a little better than that, Patfan...

I wasn't comparing Spygate to Crygate. I was just giving an example of opposing viewpoints. The Pats broke the rule, but I believe that when you see the other team, the other team sees you. And anything you put up in the air, the other team interprets. And so it's fitting, in a time where near everybody has a camera-phone in their pocket, that a rule that allows you to view something but also prohibits you from filming it, was so poorly enforced for the past seven years.

I respect the rule, but I'm tired of hearing the incident construed to sound like the Pats were filming something they weren't allowed to see.

That is NOT the point however. The point is the fact that they filmed the signals AND filmed the plays... then matched them up and used that to ILLEGALLY get an edge.

Or should I remind you of that stat that was trumpeted so often, "Billicheat's Patriots do not lose to a team twice in the same year."

Yeah, I wonder why? :doh:

Yes, apart from the 2006 Colts and 2005 Broncos, the Patriots rarely lose to a team twice in one season. But curiously, the 2008 Jets, 2007 Giants, 2006 Dolphins & Jets, 2005 Dolphins, 2004 Dolphins, and 2002 Jets all beat the Patriots in their second match ups after losing the first. So, either teams naturally change over the course of a season, or Spygate allowed the Patriots' opponents an unfair advantage.

There is also evidence that the Pats:

-Intercepted opposing teams radio signals (blatant cheating)
-Had the opposing teams actual PLAYS (blatant cheating), which means they must've been stolen.
-And, as we all now know, had the opposing teams signals, via videotaping.

I'm actually anxious to see Brady in action on a level playing field. All I know is I ain't taking him for my fantasy team this year...as for Belichick, we know what his coaching abilities are when he's not cheating. He was 36-44 in Cleveland.

Yeah, let's make an assessment of Brady's career based off his immediate return from a year long MCL/ACL injury. :rolleyes:

Hmmmm...what might have the bigger impact on his performance? His injury, or not knowing the oppositions defensive plays anymore?

It'll be interesting to see how it all shakes out...but ultimately I'm happy, because it WILL end badly for the Patriots...
