Hope the call out Cowher and other coaches.
They won't. The attraction is the fact BB still coaches. This is why all the former coaches were shocked and honest about their own actions.
There was no advantage and video scouting by any team was never considered cheating either.
Goodell made a mistake by leaking the tape to the public to allow the media to go beserk, using that to help (in his mind) make it a quick and sever punishment. I don't even think Goodell even know the depth of the jealousy by some teams and the disdain the media truly had/has for BB.
That was the flaw.
Why didn't he deal with the Jets supposedly breakign the rule the year earlier in Foxborough? Could it be, the rule really wasn't broken/didn't need to be punished?
Gee, people with IQ's over 100 think so.
Miami in 2006. They used technology (purchased CBS audio - that in itself is sketchy. "purchased"? Who from CBS is providing the full feed to players?) to get Brady's audibles for the second game that year in 2006?
21-0 Miami? Really? Miami stunk, but a SB favorite NE couldn't score 1 measly FG? Hmm.
Funny how when it favors the other team's future scouting, no one cares. It was only when the Jets wanted to use it to their own advantage as a franchise, that the lies were spread and the poor leadership by Goodell was showcased.
Every other time any two franchises had personal feuds, whether it be Al Davis and the Chargers, Chiefs or Broncos through the years or the Bears/Packers, etc, the commissioner handled it privately and that was that.
Goodell is a poor leader. He's a lawyer and a puppet for the owners to try to drive revenue.
I was onto it from the very beginning. That's the real story of Spygate. How can Goodell try to level the playing field?
ur combination or arrogance and paranoid fanatsies is unparalleled
u make cogent points then u undermine urself with crap like the above
