Media Shares Spygate Blame
I think you are so on point. As a fan and lover of football, they have cheapened the sport.
I also fault the media. They bowed out and then villified the Jets for exposing this. Why do we banish players for doping, beating their wives, DUI's etc.? Yet we let the Patriots off with a pat on the butt.
Pacman and Vick, in respect how the NFL treated this case were railroaded in the media.
Belichick can say I won't talk about it and the media says: "OK"
Along a similar vein, another reader submitted this comment:
THIS IS NO DIFFERENT THAN BASEBALL PLAYERS TAKING STERIODS TO GIVE THEM AN ADVANTAGE. THEY HAVE TO GO BEFORE A GRAND JURY FOR THAT BUT THE PATRIOTS GET OFF SCOTT FREE. IMAGINE THAT."
