You aren't the only one confused.

I've read an interview with a ex-cameraman and he says everybody steals signals to some extent - its just that the Patriots will be the first to actually get caught.

If they do, and get docked draft picks they'll only have themselves to blame.

What makes this seem so unreal is that the cameraman is so obvious - its isn't a guy hidden in the stands with a a telescopic lens - he's right there metres from the Jets bench.

I'll wait until friday to see what exactly happens - Goodell has been super tough on anything he considers against the ehtics of the game so i expect something heavy.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

they just never got snagged against the better teams.....i'd say this tactic isn't very new for them.....

Oh, so now it's ok to do it? Everyone does it? The first to get caught? Give me a break. Your team is a bunch of cheating, lying jerks.

When the shit hit the fan the Patriots didn't bias the investigation at all - he got caught and will be punished.

Nothing will come of this latest episode int he Jets 'dirty tricks' campaign.

To suggest that the Patriots would hire someone to do something that might cost them a game and/or draft picks - and do it using the same camera man who got 'busted' the first time in GreenBay - well theres always someone out there willing to sell you a bridge!

I have a canon 20D with a 20-300m zoom lense and they wouldn't allow me into the stadium with that camera. I was only allowed with my point & shoot. So maybe thats the only way they could get shots worth seeing.
