No, I am rerring to when the NFL shut down their camera from the additional angle from the sidelines.
That's what I am referring to.Wrong - we are talking about the exact same thing. The Jets were filming from an endzone position way above the field. Many teams including the patriots do this in order to get a second and possibly third angle (if taping from both endzones). Teams ask other teams for permission to do this and it is either granted or denied. The Jets said they had permission. Bill Belichick the biggest gamesmanship guy in the league said they did not have permission. Typical. Give me something new, Russ. Give me something that tells me you have even the slightest idea about this. So far you have done nothing but demonstrate a failed theory on this.
You'd have to ask why Rogie didn't punish the Jets in 2006. Or NE. Or any other team.
Is this "hallucinating"?http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=txpatriotsjetsspying
You do realize you are splitting hairs over camera angles, correct?
"When you practice, anytime you practice, you try to shoot the unit from the sideline and then from the end zone behind them, so that you can see hand placement, fits, that type of thing," Mangini said. "That's how you watch practice every day. That's how you evaluate practice every day. And it's the same thing with games. You like to have that same copy because, really, that's just an extension of the evaluation."Earth to Russ. Sideline means side angle (way up high). That's what Mangini was talking about. Coaches can't see sh*t except for opposing teams signals from field level. Come on Russ. Use your brain. All you are doing is making my argument for me.
Even coat tail rider extraordinaire, Manboobs, is telling us right here, this is a normal procedure all NFL teams have that provides teaching and scouting information.
No deceit, no intent, no advantage.Wrong. Belichick was taping something he wasn't supposed to with a cameraman in a position he wasn't supposed to be. Could not be any clearer.
Could not be any clearer.
The simple fact is, 99% of NFL fans had no idea aboiut the ins and outs of NFL scouting procedures prior to Sept 2007.
This element created an aura of suspicion and intrigue, which we know, the media loves.
This spying idea is like selling sex. It sells.
When the tape was stolen, Goodell was forced to act. Goodell was forced to act because Belichick was probably caught twice. Green Bay and NY after the memo went out. If he didn't act, he would have had no credibility around the league. Wake up russ.
