NEW YORK (AP) -- The NFL has received and destroyed all materials it requested from the New England Patriots concerning videotaping of opponents' sidelines.

A league statement Thursday said the team was in compliance with a request for tapes and other documents.

Based on Belicheat telling them everything was turned over and nothing was destroyed?

My experience has been that after someone has flagrantly violated the law you execute a search warrant rather than serve a subpoena to verify you have everything - otherwise you just have the crooks' word for what has been provided.

The NFL wants this to go away as much as the Pats do - my option is to root for whomever the Pats play and hope bad karma will even this out eventually (anyone else noticed the Red Sox have pretty much collapsed since New England's other favorite team got nabbed?) .

the most ironic of the sox collapse is that it has taken all the local media eye off the patriots considering football is just something for the "locals" to watch until spring training.

if the nfl wouldve seized all the patriots materials, they wouldnt have been able to use "data" collected vs. the chargers last sunday. the nfl made it clear they didnt wanna over-penalize the patriots.

plus, why rent a cargo ship, when Robber Kraft can use one of his own?

(can you believe goodell made the patriots org sign a certefied letter to ensure all materials had been handed over? what a sham.)

Yeah, okay, I'm on board with all of this.

I've lost a lot of repsect for Goodell throughout his handling of this whole situation.
goodell is just on an island all by himself on this one.

yep. heres photos of him waiting to hitch a ride with Robber Kraft and his fancy cruise liner shown above:

If there wasn't anything wrong with the tapes why destroy them? Sounds like the NFL just swept this under the rug.

I heard in all the hours of video tape that was confiscated that there was 25 minutes of Tom Brady showering in various NFL locker rooms.
