The NFL and Patriots released statements today regarding a report that the Patriots illegally videotaped the St. Louis Rams walkthrough in Super Bowl XXXVI.
We were aware of the rumor months ago and looked into it. There was no evidence of it on the tapes or in the notes produced by the Patriots, and the Patriots told us it was not true.
The suggestion that the New England Patriots recorded the St. Louis Ramsí walkthrough on the day before Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002 is absolutely false. Any suggestion to the contrary is untrue.
