I found this article, thought it was pretty awesome. 10 points if you see the reference to Bettis!

Well the way sports are making money, doesn't seem so. Plus I'm sure a lot of these actions occurred before, but now since we know about them it's just seems that there is a lot of cheating.

damn... that's down there with hoge and jaws on NFL Matchup (the most comprehensive analytical x's & o's show out there.)

Of course NFL Matchup doesn't tell the average fan which wide receiver is going to score the most fantasy points for the weekend...

when I click on the yellow ">" on the Atlanta Dan quote you used it takes me to a thread about the Bengals from 2006 titled "Where is Odell Thurman". I think the internet is collapsing on itself.

Hoge is the best! Jaws is good too, but Hoge is the best!

Like I said, nothing much good happens when a scab is picked. It doesn't matter who is doing the picking. See much of anything positive coming out of this thread?

Even when they were getting the "inside information", they could never win a SB by more than 3 pts. It's amazing they've accomplished what they have. They've been using the exact same strategy every year since the early 2000's, but these deaf and dumb defensive coordinators (except for the NY Football Giants) appear to not be able to figure it out ? Absolutely ridiculous... You mean to tell me Bill Belichick's IQ is THAT much higher than everybody elses (except for the NY Giants DC and HC) ?

I was about to ask how many draft picks the Ravens are getting out of this story

NEWS FLASH:
ALL coaches try to gain whatever advantage they can, whenever they can and however they can and it's been going on as long as sports has existed.


Hell, I remember George Allen way back in the '70's hiring Pinkerton guards and stationing them on the perimeter of his practice field to watch for anyone with a movie camera trying to film his practices.

I think people need to get over this "Spygate" and "Cheatriots" nonsense and move on.

I've got no problem with people hating the Patriots, but, really they've made it back to the big game twice since that incident and possibly back there a third time.

Regardless of the Bills losing 4 Super Bowls - no one thought anything less of Jim Kelley or Marino for that matter - 3 SB appearances is pretty impressive after you've adjusted after cheating in my book

chances are though - they're still cheating in some way, as are the 31 other teams

No one wants to talk about steroids, cocaine or speed with the 70s Steelers but it was there constantly - if you've ever watched Cocaine Cowboys or the making of Dawn of the Dead - plenty of that going around famous Pittsburgh people in the mid 70s to early 80s
