What other teams????
by Vito Puntillo
My favorite Pats apologist, justification, rationalization or minimization of all this dirty, rotten, Patriots cheating is............ "everyone does this" ...... "all teams do this" - etc.
If so - why haven't any of the other 31 teams been caught? Why hasn't one of the former video employees of the other 31 teams "come forward"?
Pats fans need to stop pretending the Pats aren't cheaters and become real football fans for a day and ask the same questions we all are............ what do we do now?
Marion Jones paid a stiff penalty for what she did - and what the Pats did is far worse.
To think the Pats and Bellicheat haven't done this since at least 2001 is naive.
The worst person in all this might be Tom ... Deleted by editor for lack of relevance of Brady's personal relationships to this issue Brady. Imagine how much this co-cheater benefited from all this.
God Bless Arlen Specter for not letting Bellicheat, Brady and the Pats off the hook on this. God bless Matt Walsh for coming forward.
Bottom line - Bill Bellicheat, Tom "biggest choker in NFL history last week" Brady and owner Bob Kraft should apologize to the NFL, me and other great NFL fans everywhere for cheating.
They should be stripped of all titles and records and be banned from football.
Here's another interesting story that was thrown under the rug-
Name the only football player linked with Balco?
Answer: Tom Brady.
Facts: Per Brady - The way we understand it - Brady contacted Bond's trainer to ask him about where he could work out while in the area.
Question: This was a couple miles from Brady's home town in California - he wasn't familiar with gyms in that area??? odd?
And if so - why not contact a friend (remember he lives there!!) about a gym or one of his 100 or so fellow NFL players that all work out in that area???
Instead - he spoke with Barry Bonds trainer.
Yeah - that makes sense to me.
We could go on and on about how Bellicheat ... Edited for lack of relevance of Bellichick and Brady's personal relationships to this issue.
But the fact that they cheated the greatest sport of all time is ten times worse.
I don't hate the Patriots - I love football.
It's time the real fans in New England come forward and ask the tough questions..........like - after Spygate I wonder why was Bellicheat's contract extended???
Why would an owner - after being disgraced - extend a proven cheater???..........Kraft must also be in on this??? Bellicheat cost Kraft a draft pick and 250k.....and he extended his contract - right after the incident?.........Does that make sense?
I guess I can pretend that this all didn't happen too like most Pats fans do ......... but I'm a real fan. One of the few from the Boston area that looks at this objectively and without bias.
I'm embarrassed the Pats home is in New England.
