It’s not just an asterisk Hall of Fame running back Earl Campbell wants for the Patriots because of spygate; he wants them stripped of their three Super Bowl titles and Bill Belichick kicked out of the NFL.
“I often wondered because, man, when you win the Super Bowl, it's like you move on and go to other teams,” he told the San Antonio Express-News. “But all those guys kept staying there. I knew there was something. And all of a sudden this cheating came out and I said, ‘Ah, boy. That's it.' ”
Boy, Campbell’s got something, especially since the Patriots have kept Antowain Smith, Deion Branch, David Givens, David Patten, Damien Woody, Daniel Graham, Ty Law, Lawyer Milloy, Corey Dillon, Adam Vinatieri, Willie McGinest, Jermaine Wiggins, Joe Andruzzi, Ted Washington, etc. around for the entire run.
“I think if I was the commissioner, I would fire him,” Campbell told Chad Peters. “And I'd also fix it so he couldn't coach in the NFL anymore. And those teams that played (and won three Super Bowls), I'd consider that a tie. The other teams would get a ring, too.”
Awesome idea. Congratulations you steroid-induced Carolina Panthers. Because you didn’t cheat, you get a ring too.
