Default A new Patriots allegation....cheating against Rams in SB?

On the eve of Super Bowl XLII, a published report out of Boston claims that a Patriots employee filmed a Rams' practice prior to beating St. Louis in Super Bowl XXXVI.

A source told the Boston Herald that a member of New England's video department filmed the Rams' final walkthrough before the 2002 game, which the Patriots later won 20-17 on a last-second field goal by Adam Vinatieri.

"The coaches have no knowledge of it," Patriots vice president of media relations Stacey James said when contacted by the Herald.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell also said he had no knowledge of the situation when questioned during his state of the league address on Friday.

"I'm not aware of that," Goodell said, according to the report.

The Patriots were first to have their final walkthrough that day, the report said, and the employee stayed behind to film the Rams. He was never asked to identify himself or produce a press pass, according to the report. The cameraman then rode the media shuttle back to the hotel, the report said.

It is not known what happened with the tape after that point, the report said, nor if the cameraman acted alone or was instructed by the Patriots.

The Patriots were heavy underdogs in the game but still opened up a 14-3 halftime lead against the powerhouse Rams offense. The Rams rallied to tie in the second half before Vinatieri's game-winner.

New England was fined $750,000 and had a first-round draft pick taken away after the league determined the team violated policy by filming the New York Jets' defensive signals during a September game, a saga that has since been dubbed Spygate.

And this is a surprise? I think we all knew they have been cheating for years. Too bad there isn't a way to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt and strip them of all their SB's. *
