Excellent. Less far to travel to see them lose. Great stuff. :longsufferingfan:

Ah, you beat me to it.

Yesterday, Sen. Arlen Specter stated that he plans to summon NFL commissioner Roger Goodell before Congress to explain why he destroyed tapes that showed the Patriots stealing defensive signals over the last two years.
That REALLY does not sound very good for the Patriots. At all.

even though i'm still upset about the Pack losing to the Giants, i'll still cheer for them. there's no way i want the Cheatriots going 19-0, though i think pretty soon we'll be putting a good ole "*" next to all of their Super Bowl seasons.

Goodell said yesterday that there were six tapes. Some from the 2007 preseason, and some from the end of 2006. How does that change things? They didn't win anything in 2006, and the camera was confiscated in the first quarter of the Jets game this year and determined by the NFL to have no effect on the game itself.



As for the story regarding the Rams, I'll believe it when there is proof, but according to the NFL, all the tapes were confiscated and there weren't any others. How exactly would a former employee have tapes, if there were any? Belichick certainly would have kept them himself, I would imagine.

So a Patriots tape guy allegedly filmed a Rams practice that was open to the press, and either the guy lugging around a huge videocamera was never noticed in an empty stadium, or was noticed but never was asked to identify himself. Furthermore, this just happened to be the first Super Bowl after 9/11, when security precautions were at an all-time high. And we are to believe that this Rams practice contained highly sensitive information that directly allowed the Patriots to beat the Rams the next day.

Yes, that makes complete sense.

This attempt at creating a shitstorm days before the Super Bowl, will probably ensure that the Giants get absolutely crushed tomorrow.

Echoing what speedracer said about taping the Rams, what could they have possibly gotten from videotaping them the day before the game? It was a walkthrough practice. Hardly anything happens at a walk through practice and it's not like there was any big surprise as to what the Rams were going to do.

Who cares what they got out of it? What matters is the legality of taping the opposing team's practices.

Randhail's point might be more about doubting the validity of the story. Along the lines of why would the Pats record something like a walkthrough in the first place.

I'll believe this when there's some actual proof, and we know who the "source" is. Then I'll figure out if I even care about it.

Exactly, I have my doubts about the validity of these stories. It seems awfully strange for this all to be happening hours before the game - especially for a matter that was considered "closed" by the league. For all we know the so called source regarding the Rams story could be Chizip - who's been know to support some conspriracy theories regarding that game.
