Wow, where do I begin?
First, the commissioner says that whatever the Patriots did gave them no advantage. They got fined because of the blatant disregard for his memo, not because of any unfair competitive advantage.
Second, In the Super Bowls
- VS RAMS, we scored 10 points off of turnovers. The Rams played better in the second half than first. Not looking like we figured them out over the videos at halftime.
- VS Pittsburgh in AFC 2001 AFC Championship, we scored 14 on special teams, and Drew Bledsoe came in off the bench and threw the only offensive TD. (I was at that game.)You cite Pittsburgh players as saying "it was like they knew our plays" as EVIDENCE?
Evidence of sour grapes, nothing more. Losers are always looking for excuses why they lost.
-VS Carolina, That game as well got close in 2nd Half, if anyone made adjustments better, it was Carolina rolling the dice with shots down the field.
-VS PHILLY, game had more to do with Donovan McNab having the flu.
-Where were the tapes when we playd Indy,or Denver in Playoff losses.
Also, perfectly legal to steal signals, if you can. Jets video has three guys sending in defensive signals. Who's live, who's fake?
How do you think you can decipher that in 12 minute halftimes?
In 1998-99, when Denver was winning their second super bowl, they were caught beating the salary cap. Did that give them an advantage, getting to keep a championship team together to repeat? Anyone talk of stripping them of the title? They lost a first round pick.
Unrelated sport, but dear to my heart, Red Sox, Game Seven of ALCS against Yankees. Jason Giambi hit two home runs in that game, which was eventually won by Yanks in 12th inning. Giambi admitted later that he took steroids, was jacked. Should Yanks forfeit that Pennant and World Series?
Fellas, it's a team game of blocking and tackling. Pats won with good defense, and fair amount of luck.
