In Response to Re: BOB RYAN writes about SPYGATE : Not sure if anyone else remembers, but about 3 years ago on here (give or take), some troll came on this forum railing on and on about Spygate... Specifically, the guy started mentioning Belichick's take that "He didn't fully understand the rules," and how it was load of B-. So hilariously, the guy went out, found, then cut and pasted 3 seperate NFL Front Office takes on team videotaping...1 was the NFL Rulebook, 1 was a NFL FO memo from the year before The SpyGate thing, and 1 was the NFL FO memo that was sent to teams before training camp that '07-'08 season... You couldn't even try to make up the descripancies and contradictions within these ALL-correct (because not 1 said otherwise of having any greater or lesser value)- amongst these 3 different (again=LEAGUE declarations on what the rule actually was): 1 said NO videotaping allowed at all (and insanely, time-wise it was the middle one that said this), then 1 of the 2 others said, Videotaping was allowed (and it offered ZRO mention on the "where" specifics), but it had to be done by team staff in some fashion where said team staff member had no way of giving it to the coaching staff within the same game (something like this); The 3rd was by far THE best: It stated how NO videotaping was allowed (o.k...everybody got this?). Then in the very next set of phrases, it said, that Any and ALL videotaping must be done in an enclosed structure, with at least some simple form of side enclosure, some roof enclosure, but the front (window or not) was not emphasized... LMAO, Even FURTHER, it started offering different conditions on where you COULD also videotape (i.e. areas devoid of ANY roof, side, or what-have-you type of "enclosure"). IF Bill Belichick actually wanted to push the intrepretative aspects of these things (apparently ALL of which, were "The Rules"), he could have. Not sure that BB going the loud, open, legal courtroom, media further st#nk, Would be anything he would personally enjoy (compared with some simplier form of actual bloody torture). It was however, A Perfect Roger Goodell Collection of Rules: Set mandates fully open to various forms of intrepretation. Posted by LazarusintheSanatorium
I for one, would LOVE TO SEE the facts as well as the legal arguments on both sides of spygate presented in an open legal courtroom.
This case BEGS for a lawsuit just to CLEAR THE AIR, if not for the proper historical context. We have seen a clear abuse of power from goodell. When is the injustice large enough to supersede the "private club enterprise" or whatever the NFL is operating under...?
The irony is the respect BB has for history which has him front and center and rising. Goodell can't change that but the next commissioner might want to clarify this murky issue that Goodell botched and left behind.
