Hell or High Water
by Willie McCoy
(Cheater City, MA)
No other team in the history of the NFL has been fined a first round draft pick (until now), nor has a coach been fined $500,000 (until now).
If all the teams do it, why were there this many "firsts" in this batch of penalties? If they were not cheating, why were they penalized at all?
If my team was proven guilty of cheating I would want to move on too. "Get over it" is what I would be saying too, because there is no defense - the debating equivalent of nuh-uh.
The Pats perfect season will no doubt spawn a generation of new Pats fans, like those of us whose football fanship began in the 70's and are Cowboys or Steelers fans, not because of where we lived but because they were winners (for the record, I am neither a Steeler or Cowboys fan).
I for one will make sure to educate these new fans that this was far from a perfect season.
