    Re: Goodell is really naive!

    Yeah, Goodell, the commish of the most powerful sports league in the world is naive and all the people on the a message board are brilliant.  That makes sense.

    Goodell likely let this go and didn't bring it back up b/c it is horrible press for the league.  Having a 3 time Super Bowl champion coach/team being implicated for cheating is not something that the league really wants to keep in the headlines.  I don't think David Stern goes out of his way to mention Tim Donaghy.

    Re: Goodell is really naive!

    Here is what this whole, sad, episode comes down to:

    The league caught the Patriots FILMING from an ILLEGAL location.  The league could not show or prove the film had any legitimate use in game planning or having aided the Patriots in winning games.  So, to stave off the detractors, like the UD6's of the world who believe the Pats cheated with film, they destroyed all the tapes.  The Pats have since destroyed many teams along the way and shoving it in everyone's faces going 18 - 0 in the same season before the SB loss.  ( one would think of ALL games to lose, if the Pats were cheating, they'd lose the SB after going 18 - 0??!! )  This episode is nothing but an excuse machine for fans who do not like the Patriots as we continue to see the "cheating" word thrown about almost 4 years later!

    Re: Goodell is really naive!

    My question to Goodell, if I had the chance to ask him one question, would be:

    Say that next Sunday in Dallas, either Green Bay or Pittsburgh has a guy either on the sidelines, in the coaches box, or in the press box, and that guy has a pair of binoculars glued to his face, and said binoculars are trained squarely on the coaches on the opponent's sidelines. Then say that this same guy is then observed making cryptic notes with a pencil that read, "first and 10, 4:17 left, first quarter, ball on their 24...left palm to left cheek, two fingers on left hand brushed across chest, fist pump with right hand down by right hip--ball snapped, 4-man rush, 2-deep zone."

    Now obviously, Mr. Commissioner, this guy isn't taking notes for a biology exam the following morning. He's clearly trying to decipher the opponent's signals to give his team an advantage during the playing of a game.

    Given that we know from Matt Walsh's testimony that the Patriots most definitely were not using their tapes during the playing of the games on the day they were made, what, then, is the penalty that will be assessed to this theoretical Pittsburgh or Green Bay employee who was actually stealing signals for use during the playing of a game?

    Does the NFL frown only on signal stealing with electronic equipment, or does it frown on all signal stealing (?), which we know still goes on every Sunday in every one of your stadiums, Mr. Commissioner.

    Please elaborate and try not to make yourself look like too much of a foolish hypocrite (not that you haven't done that already).

    In Response to Re: Goodell is really naive! : What a typical response - "everyone does it".  really?  prove it.  This is the same response that came from spygate.  Quit, trying to minimize the fact that the pats are happily willing to operate outside the rules when and where they can in order to gain an advantage.  Their rule is:  If you ain't cheatin, you ain't tryin, and it all comes from Belichick.

    Shouldn't you be on a Dolts Forum wondering who your QB will be next year and OL and things like that with other Dolt fans. Why are you here trolling on a Pats Forum anyway under roos

    Do you just make sh*t up in order to continue an argument?  Tell you what, skippy (you like that name), go to the pats website and see whether or not Wendell played in the game at the Jets this year? Now read this again:  NFL statement:  only coaches and a small amount of situation substitution players immediately ready to be sent into the game are allowed within the "second border". Wendell did not play in that game, wasn't going in after the punt, and thus had no business being where he was on the sidelines per the rule.  So why was he there?  Logically, because he was instructed to be a part of a wall of players being used to impede the progress of the gunner should the gunner go out of bounds.  Since the gunner did not go far enough out of bounds, Wendell (either of his own volition or per instruction) stepped into the painted sideline area (off limits to all players not in the game) to hit/trip the gunner.  The act is no different than what the jets did, and I'll finish with this.  There are some on this board who could care less about the wall.  All, however, were in agreement that alosi should have been punished because he could have seriously hurt the gunner by sticking his leg out.  The patriot player committed the same intentional act, yet no punishment.   Maybe I am wrong about the NFL and Bias regarding the pats.  Maybe the NFL actually is biased in favor of the pats.

    The Jets window is closing quickly as there will be a hard cap next year. The Jets will not be able to keep that team together , no way. The Patriots have been great at planning for the changes in the CBA. Goodell is so in the pockets of the Jets it isn't funny. He know's they blew the big chance for the next 5 yrs. atleast! The Pats are reloading and building a championship team on the fly. Short of something happening to Mr. MVP Tom Brady , the Pats will contend for the Super Bowl every year till he retires. The Jets can forget it. The Pats loss in the playoffs was a momentary setback in the bigger picture. The Jets are toast!

    Re: Goodell is really naive!

    BBreigns...   your long post hits the nail on the head as it was a witch hunt.

    Given the complexity of an NFL game in which team's change signals season to season, game to game, let alone their rosters being revamped, plus how players react to the action of a play, for ANYONE to believe a team can cheat so often as to impact a game is ludicrous. In each game we have seen plays in which the announcer would proclaim.  " the defense seemed to know the play was coming", yet, do we hear a subsequent comment the team may have cheated to know that?  Of course not as it was a good guess that worked!  It is called game PREPARATION and making a good observation.  It will be a long time before folks like UD6 and their types get past this episode and see it for what it is..   a jealousy driven attempt to discredit an organization to the delight of fans outside of NE.

    In Response to Re: Goodell is really naive! : I love when fans believe the commissioner is operating with bias.  Maybe for pats fans its your inherent "us against the world" mentality derived from Belichick's efforts/desire to turn the world against the pats.  Feel free to allow Goodell to fuel your hate if it supports your fantasy, but I really don't believe that Goodell is emotionally trying to stick it to your club, especially given his strong relationship with Kraft.   Here's an example, it's now been proven that NE built a wall for kick returns and actually impeded the progress of the opposition.  What punishment has been handed down to the Patriots for doing this?

    Re: Goodell is really naive!

    The whole flavor of the post certainly got twisted. The idea that Goodell thought BB would try to explain himself to the media is ludicrous on a couple of fronts. One that the media somehow would take his explination and put the matter to rest and second he should know BB history with the media and how they railroaded him in Cleveland. It seams to me he is learning the job as he goes along and he really does not have the experience or the expertise to be an effective comish with recent examples not withstanding.
