ESPN's Report on Patriots Cheating over the Years

Postby GannonFan » Tue Sep 08, 2015 8:11 am

Pretty good read, albeit pretty long. But then again, the Pats have been cheating for a long time so it's hard to condense all of that.

:lol: I didn't realize the extent of their cheating.


And this Ernie Adams fella seems to be one shady character.

The NFL can't win for losing
The timing on this report is spectacularly bad for the League

Dead Spin has a few hilarious articles :rofl: this one will have some legs historically speaking

Several of them acknowledge that during pregame warm-ups, a low-level Patriots employee would sneak into the visiting locker room and steal the play sheet, listing the first 20 or so scripted calls for the opposing team's offense. (The practice became so notorious that some coaches put out fake play sheets for the Patriots to swipe.) Numerous former employees say the Patriots would have someone rummage through the visiting team hotel for playbooks or scouting reports. Walsh later told investigators that he was once instructed to remove the labels and erase tapes of a Patriots practice because the team had illegally used a player on injured reserve.

This is a HUGE sh!t Sandwich for the NFL
and:
The Patriots still monkey with the injury reports - classic misdirection stuff
They had Brady as "questionable" for the Super Bowl last year

:rofl:

The whole things is hilarious - gawd does the NFL have their hands full right now - what a mess

Still trying to figure out all this angst about whether or not the Patriots have cheated over the years (and the jump in logic from "they've cheated in the past" to "therefore, they MUST be cheating now"), and nary a word about Al Davis and the bugs in the locker room.

:ohno:

SuperHornet's Athletics Hall of Fame includes Jacksonville State kicker Ashley Martin, the first girl to score in a Division I football game. She kicked 3 PATs in a 2001 game for J-State.

Huh? There's no angst over whether they cheated or not - of course they cheated. Spygate happened and the Patriots accepted fault. Granted, they accepted fault for what was probably just a small portion of what they were really cheating, but it's still established fact that they cheated.

Same deal as ARod, a fellow cheater.

So you agree that the Patriots should get the death penalty for a year!
