Default Broncos' McDaniels caught videotaping

... the goddamn 49ers of all teams! Not only is he a cheat like his former boss, but he's an idiot, too. Who the hell needs signals to beat the 49ers? I can hear it now: tick-tick-tick-tick.

Quote:
The NFL fined the Denver Broncos and coach Josh McDaniels $50,000 each after an employee violated the league's integrity-of-the-game policy by videotaping a six-minute portion of the San Francisco 49ers' Oct. 30 practice at Wembley Stadium in London.

The Broncos and NFL made the announcement Saturday, nearly one month after the 49ers' 24-16 victory over the Broncos on Oct. 31
The Broncos informed the NFL that team video director Steve Scarnecchia took the video and presented it that day to McDaniels, who declined to view it. However, McDaniels was fined because he failed to report the incident as required by league policy.
"I apologize for not promptly reporting the improper conduct of our video director before our game against the 49ers in London," McDaniel said in a statement released by the Broncos. "The actions of this individual are in no way representative of the values and integrity held by myself, our players and coaches, and the entire Denver Broncos organization.
"I understand the punishment from the National Football League and support its commitment to the integrity of the game. We have addressed the situation internally to assure that nothing like this happens again."
The Broncos also were fined because they are responsible for their employees' actions.
The Broncos terminated Scarnecchia's employment for cause. Also, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell notified Scarnecchia that, as a repeat violator of league rules relating to the integrity of the game, he will be the subject of a hearing to determine whether or not he should be barred from the league.
Scarnecchia and McDaniels previously worked for the New England Patriots, who were found to have videotaped New York Jets coaches sending in signals during a game four years ago. The NFL bans such videotaping and issued $750,000 in fines against the Patriots and coach Bill Belichick. The Patriots also were stripped of their 2008 first-round draft pick.
Scarnecchia worked for the Patriots between 2001 and 2005. McDaniels, who worked in New England from 2001 to 2009, hired Scarnecchia in Denver shortly after becoming the Broncos' coach 22 months ago.

The league found that Broncos executives were made aware of the videotaping on Nov. 8, after the team's return from London.
After conducting an internal review, Broncos executives contacted the NFL office on Nov. 12 and requested a meeting to report the apparent violation. On the morning of Nov. 16, Broncos executives, including owner Pat Bowlen, met with NFL staff in New York to disclose Scarnecchia's actions.
Based on the report, NFL Security promptly began an investigation, which included interviews of Broncos personnel in Denver on Nov. 18 and 19. NFL Security also arranged for a forensic analysis of the laptop computers used by the video department, which confirmed that the Saturday practice had been recorded. NFL Security retained the tape.
The fines are the latest embarrassment for a Broncos team that has lost 15 of 20 games for the first time since 1971 and 1972. The Broncos were blown out 59-14 by the archrival Oakland Raiders last month in what many consider the worst home loss in the team's 51-year history.

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH, the shit doesn't fall far from the dirty ass. I have no idea how this guy is a head coach in the NFL. Having guys like him and the likes of Todd Haley coaching NFL teams kind of lowers the product a little. I guess its fitting considering Roger Goddell is the commissioner, the worst commissioner of my life time in all of sports.

Real shocker. Do you really think this isn't still going on in NE too??

Better cameras from further away?? Once a cheater always a cheater.

The last patsie game sure had a familiar feel.

I know....I'm just a deliusional hater who can't handle the fact that the patsies are just soooooo much better than the Steelers. Consider this my first step in therapy.

True, they could just pop in a VHS tape from four years ago.
