It doesn?t matter that The New England Patriots cheated!
During their season-opening game Sept. 9, 2007 the Patriots were caught filming the signals of Jets coaches, a violation of league rules. On Sept. 13, Goodell fined Belichick $500,000 and the Patriots $250,000, and took away a first-round draft choice, a penalty intended to send a chilling message through the league. The Patriots then submitted all information they had illegally obtained, and the N.F.L. destroyed it Sept. 20 in Foxborough, Mass., where the Patriots are based, by two league vice presidents, Jeff Pash and Ray Anderson.Destroyed it! Destroyed all evidence?Goodell said that he destroyed the evidence, in part, because there was no use for it. The Patriots had already admitted wrongdoing and accepted their punishment.At a news conference two days before the Super Bowl, Goodell said that the league collected six tapes, some from the 2007 preseason and the rest “primarily” from late 2006. He also said that the league confiscated some notes. Goodell said that the notes dated back to 2002.Goodell said Belichick probably had been videotaping opponents’ signals his entire career as a head coach, perhaps dating to his five-year stint with the Browns in the early 1990s.Goodell said Belichick told him he believed the taping was legal; Goodell said he did not concur.“He thought that it was permissible to use electronic equipment as long as the information wasn’t used in the same game,” Goodell said. “That’s not my reading of the rules, and that is why I disciplined him so aggressively.”Goodell was asked how far Belichick’s actions may date. "He said that's always been his interpretation since he's been the head coach," the commissioner said. "We are going to agree to disagree on the facts."Belichick has lead the Patriots to four Super Bowls, with three victories, since becoming coach in 2000.It also doesn’t matter if Matt Walsh, a former Patriots employee has what he claims to be tapes that could prove damaging to the Patriots, including one of the St. Louis Rams' walkthrough prior to Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002. Goodell noted that "we were the ones that disclosed" the Patriots' illegal taping of the New York Jets' defensive signals in Week 1 of last season. Further, Goodell said, they had an admission by Belichick.

"I have nothing to hide," Goodell said.
 Goodell destroyed the New England Patriots Spygate tapes because
a) Belichek admited to cheating and
b) he was afraid the tapes would fall into the hands of other teams.
c) The issue is not stealing signals. That is allowed, "and it is done quite widely," commissioner Roger Goodell had said. The issue, rather, is the method of acquiring the signals. "I'm not sure that there is a coach in the league that doesn't expect that their signals are being intercepted by opposing teams," It is why, as Goodell pointed out, coaches cover their mouths when barking instructions. It is why teams use complicated hand signals and often have someone send fake signals to confuse opponents.At least one former player feels the Patriots' practices had an affect on the outcome of a game he played in. Willie Gary, who played in seven games for the 2001 Rams, was one of four plaintiffs named in a lawsuit filed against the Patriots, owner Robert Kraft, and Belichick in New Orleans Federal Court yesterday that seeks more than $100 million in damages.The lawsuit contends, "The ticket purchasers and attendees of the game were damaged by watching and paying for a game tainted by the defendants' illegal activities," and "all Rams employees were damaged by having played in a Super Bowl game tainted by the defendants' illegal activity and by the loss of the game also caused by the defendants' illegal activity."The lawsuit seeks damages on behalf of Gary, two fans who attended the Super Bowl, and a Rams season ticket-holder. They won’t win!Why? Why won’t they win? Why doesn’t it matter if the Patriots were caught cheating?The commissioner Roger Goodell and the league are protecting the league, not the patriots.  There's a whole lot more at stake here than just the court of public opinion and the patsies.  This is a huge cash cow that can't afford to be crushed by a cheating scandal.  The pats get off light for the BULLSHIT because it's better for the league.  It's the same reason why the Steelers aren't going to go after the Pats.

The NFL has adopted a sit down, shut up, and let it all blow over mentality with this.

Patriot Fans write NFL a petition about UNFAIRNESS?
Mood:  don't ask
It appears some Patriots fans are tad bit angered about a time clock error during the N.Y. Giants’ final, game-winning drive in the Super Bowl. They’re so mad, in fact, they’ve started a petition to get the game reversed.Are you fucking serious?!!!!!!First, let’s take a look back in 2005. Those lil’ Patsie Fans didn’t have a problem September 25, 2005 when a clock error added 52 seconds to the fourth quarter of the Patriots-Steelers game resulting in a Patriots 23-20 victory.Secondly, I read the first 96 signatures and their comments. You have got to be kidding me. Unfuckingreal!Bradley Whitaker writes, “the referees seemed as though they wanted the Patriots to finally lose.”Hey Bradley, welcome to our world. It seems the refs are always wanting Colts along with other NFL Teams (see above –Steelers/Patriots and The Time Clock Error) to lose against the Patriots.A Chip wrote, “We deserve to have won the superbowl”
Hey Chip, Steelers deserve to win the
September 25, 2005 game. The Colts deserved to have won the 2004 AFC Championship Game.

It’s just a shame it’s being investigated by Crafts best friend, Roger Goodell. Goodell will probably just destroy all the evidence again.And Myles Fraser claims, “We must spread the truth and get the NFL to investigate this game.”The truth Myles? The truth is the Patriots cheat. How do you pathetic losers have any grounds to pronounce unfair acts!Face it! You lost! Cheaters never win!

MAKES NO SENSE
Mood:  on fire

I know it’s all been already said, blogged, posted in forums and spoken about at the office; yet I’m going to bring it up again . . .

 

. . . and with it all being said, blogged, posted and spoken about, WHY IS NOTHING BEING DONE?

 

Yes, the Cheating Patriots Spygate Scandal..

 

What image is the NFL giving to its Fans and the children that look up to these Teams and Star Players? “But Dad, I thought you told me cheaters never win!”

 New England Patriots (staff) was accused, held to trial and found guilty of cheating, (Judge) NFL commissioner Roger Goodell handed the Patriots a slap on the wrist and THEN DESTROYED ALL EVIDENCE. And now The Patriots are breaking records in The NFL and this cheating factor plays no part. HOW can these records stand when you are FOUND GUILTY of CHEATING? Some have made claims that everyone cheats to get the better advantage over their opposing team. This may be so. But no one has been caught, brought to The NFL Commisioner or Board and found guilty. The New England Patriots were found guilty in 2007 for cheating and are now at the end of the season with multiple NFL records being broke, going to the Super Bowl and nobody has a problem with this? The media is glorifying all their records and claiming them to be the best team ever in the NFL. THEY FUCKING CHEATED!!!!!!!!!!

Jags try nevertheless come up short, Colts WIN
Mood:  flirty

The Indianapolis Colts are on the verge of their fifth straight AFC South title as Peyton threw four touchdown passes beating once again The Jacksonville Jaguars in a 28-25 victory Sunday and take a two-game lead with four games to go.

 

I hope your prevision of an undefeated season is worth it while in the end The Colts become victorious in The AFC Championship . . .

AGAIN!

Just had to add that in there!

 

I must also add, HEY YOU TWELTH MAN out there, GREAT JOB! You guys were loud and proud! Jags had 4 false start penalties called on them; three were in the first quarter. One on their first drive and two on their second drive. Their third one really is pissy as Kelvin Hayden had intercepted the pass yet was wiped clear because of the false start on Jags. Lucky bastards.

 The first quarter was a real hoot as red flags were being bounced back and forth. On a play where Robert Mathis got around Khalif Barnes and forced the fumble; Officials ruled that Jags had recovered the ball when in fact was recovered by Colts; Raheem Brock and was actually down at the time before trying to get up and run with the ball as it came loose and was recovered by Jags. Tony threw the red flag challenging that they recovered the fumble and the play was REVERSED. Jags Coach, Jack Del Rio attempted to in turn throw his red flag, yet there was nothing to challenge. This gave the Colts the opportunity to put a score on the board first as Manning hit Dallas Clark as he beat Clint Ingram into the endzone for the touchdown. 

Later in the first quarter on a Colts 3rd and 10; Manning fires to Ben Utecht for the first down at the Jaguars 42, but Jags coach Jack Del Rio is upset. He's throwing the red flag for the challenge. Del Rio is challenging where Utecht was spotted. Del Rio got his adjustment and in return wasted a timeout for as the Officials made corrections to the spot of the ball, they brought out the chains to in turn flash the palm of his hand towards Colts end zone – FIRST DOWN, COLTS!

 

Two plays later, Manning fires one to Utecht who in turn fumbles and is recovered by Jags. Dungy tossed the ol’ red flag challenging if it was a complete pass, Tony won and Colts keep the ball. Next play was a 48 yard touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne!

 

Manning, who was 19-of-28 for 288 yards and now has 23 TD passes for the season, tying him with Dan Marino as the only quarterbacks to throw more than 20 in each of their first 10 NFL seasons.

6 games in 32 days
Mood:  quizzical
DID YOU KNOW?
The Colts have played 6 games in 32 days.
Any normal NFL team would play roughly 4 games in 30 or so days. For some reason, the scheduling gods decided the Colts could do 6 games in 32 days, with one of those games against undefeated New England and another all the way out in San Diego, in the middle of a monsoon. This, along with a body bag's worth of injuries, has made the last 6 games one helluva gauntlet for any team to run through.
It's insane I tell you.
And yet, despite the injuries, the poor breaks, the missed FGs, and Russ Purnell's continued employment, this team should be 11-0. They are better than any team in football; including New England, Pittsburgh, Dallas, and GB.

New England Patriots The Best
Mood:  silly

I am so tired of hearing every year how incredible Tom Brady and The New England Patriots are. The New England Patriots make the AFC Playoffs every year for the simple reason they are the better Team of the 4 weak ass teams. Put The Patriots in The AFC South Division; up against The Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans. And then put The Indianapolis Colts in the AFC East Division. Let’s see if The Patriots can handle that load.

And now in week 4 of 2007 there is the talk of how The Patriots have destroyed all of their opponents. They beat

The New York Jets, San Diego Chargers, Buffalo Bills and The Cincinnati Bengals who all hold a 1-3 win/loss record.

WOW. Pretty tuff job Patriots.

If their so good, why did Belichick feel they needed to cheat. Or have they always been cheating and are they still?

See ya November 4th!

Caolts at Titans

Both The Colts and The Titans played a foolish last minute drive, nevertheless The Colts Defense prevailed!

With The Colts on top 22 to 20 at the two minute warning of The Game, one would think it's an easy win, simply use Addai to run the ball and at the same time run down the clock. Manning had another alternative. Manning decided to pass the ball, twice. Twice he threw incomplete. Manning appeared to go again for a pass as he was sacked instead and Colts ended up having to punt. Turning over the ball to the Titans with way more than enough time to execute and score for the winning touchdown or even a field goal, as what the development looked to be as Titans drove down the field. With the Titans sitting on The Colts 45 yard line and 25 seconds left in the game, Vince Young threw 2 incomplete passes to Jones. Fourth down and 15 seconds left in the game, one would think it's an easy win, simply bring out Bironas, who won the game last year in 2006 with a 60 yard field goal. Fisher had another alternative. "Anytime the ball's in Vince Young's hands, everyone feels like we're going to win the game," Titans defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch said. "We were just waiting for something magical to happen."

HUH! NO MAGIC HERE, CURSED MORE LIKE IT,
The curse of Bob Sanders and Dwight Freeney and a whole flock of other Colts Defensive Players!!!

With 15 seconds left on 4th down and 4 to go for a first, Titans went for it as they were instantaneously swarmed by The Colts Defense. Defensive tackle Darrel Reid crashed into the backfield. Left end Josh Thomas pushed hard. Young was in trouble, as he was engulfed by Colts Defensive Players he searched frantically for an option. He tried at first to run,  Middle linebacker Gary Brackett knifed in and clamped his legs; when trapped, Young lateraled desperately to left guard Jacob Bell as the play got even wilder . . .

. . . Linebacker Tyjuan Hagler flew at Jacob Bell, who in turn panicked, bobbled and pitched to . . .

 

. . .to Colts' Left Tackle, Darryl Reid.

Reid had the football at the Tennessee 38.

The clock read 0:04.

GAME OVER!

For a 22-20 victory in front of a raucous 69,143 crowd at LP Field as The Defending Champion Indianapolis Colts (2-0) reminded Tennessee which team remains atop the AFC South.

Cheating Pats
Mood:  irritated

So it has been proven that The New England Patriots do cheat as I have claimed in the past. Surely everybody is aware of what I am talking about; The Pats filming opponents (JETS) hand signals. For an update,
New England Patriots

 Accused of Illegal Spying

Check out ESPN for more details

UPDATED September 11, 2007

Goodell determines 

Pats broke rules by taping Jets' signals

Check out ESPN for more details


Goodell is considering severe sanctions, including the possibility of docking the Patriots "multiple draft picks"

Bullshit! There has got to be more repercussions than that. What about the fact that The Jets have to go with a loss on the books after it has been reveled that The Patriots cheated in order to win. Win? The Patriots did not win, they cheated the fucking system. They went against The NFL Rules.

There should either be a re-match or The Jets should get The “W” in the books and The Patriots get the BIG “L” in the books.

Here’s a reprimand, eliminate them from playing in The Playoffs.
