The Jacksonville Jaguars have pulled a New York Post.

Ketchman also calls the Patriots use of bulletin board material a “media scam” (in a video column ingeniously entitled, “Here’s What I Think.”). Maybe so.

Although, this might be fun if Patriots.com got involved, just to watch Bill Belichick chew out the guys once he found out.
