Re: Bellycheat suspended indefinatly????
 
The NFl is not gonna suspend Bellicheat.. He's a semi poster boy for them Winning those superbowls etc.. it would be like the NFl admitting that it's corrupt like the NBA ref thing. Goddell is going to dock them a fine ( which Kraft will easily pay with pennies) and take away likely 2 draft picks.. a 2nd rounder and like a 5th or 6th.. basically a slap on the wrist.

I would love to see Belicheat suspended for 2 games, pats docked a # 1 and a # 3 draft pick.. That would send a serious message to the staff's around the league that just like the players.. This is now a no nonsense run league.. But it won't happen!.

It would be a very strong statement if they suspended Bill B for even one game. In this league, One game can be the difference between the playoffs and golf...

of coarse in the AFC east, it might be 3 games...but still, one game would be a huge deterrent for any other cheaters.

Even if he was suspended he would find a way to cheat that too. Like a video phone, web cam, cell phone or some sort.

NFL To Fine Belichick 500 Grand + Draft Picks

BOSTON -- WCVB has learned the NFL will punish the New England Patriots and the team's coach, Bill Belichick, after the team got caught taping signals during the Jets game, sources confirmed Thursday.

SportsCenter 5's Mike Lynch reported that a decision will be announced Friday, but WCVB sources have said the NFL will fine Belichick $500,000. The fine has to be paid by Belichick himself and cannot be paid by the team's owner, Robert Kraft.

In addition to the fine, the Patriots must forfeit two high draft choices. They could be as high as a first- and a third-round draft choice, sources said.

A letter will be faxed to Belichick telling him of the NFL's decision, and he will not be required to appear in person at the NFL headquarters in New York City.

The controversy started when a Patriots cameraman was caught videotaping a New York Jets coach's signals during last weekend's season-opening game.

In a news conference Wednesday, Belichick issued a terse written statement before his regular weekly team news conference saying, "Although it remains a league matter, I want to apologize to everyone who has been affected, most of all ownership, staff and players. Following the league's decision, I will have further comment."

Belichick indicated he may have misinterpreted the National Football League's rules regarding recording games.

"Earlier this week, I spoke with Commissioner (Roger) Goodell about a videotaping procedure during last Sunday's game and my interpretation of the rules. At this point, we have not been notified of the league's ruling," Belichick said.

The Patriots were accused of spying during Sunday's game against the New York Jets by Jets coach Eric Mangini. NFL security officials confiscated a video camera from Patriots video assistant Matt Estrella on the sideline Sunday.

I think forfeit is the only applicable punishment. One NFL game is huge, and it would have double impact because it was divisional foe. I consider this a slap on the wrist.
