I can say that I rooted for the Patriots in SB 36. But now all their recent accomplishments have a tarnish in my eyes. I can't help but question how much of what they've done is actual talent and how much was cheating or skirting the rules.

videotaped it when - she said they were supposedly new plays developed specifically for the Superbowl.

They practice for the Super Bowl too. They had to practice the new plays before putting them into play. Pats fans are going to defend them to the end but the rest of us who didn't fall under their spell can see their halos tarnishing before our eyes. Hope Tommy Boy enjoyed his super model last night and I hope she had enough wine in the suite to get through his whining!

Wouldn't you practice your new plays during Superbowl week practice?

Would be kinda foolish to try a play during the biggest game of the year without any of the players not actually trying it once or twice.

ah, so now we have taping of Panthers SB practices, too. Not just the walk-thru, but actual practices.

It's all just speculation, but Spygate has opened up doors that were considered preposterous. What used to be never is now unlikely.

I still don't think the Patriots should give up their rings no matter what, unless there is INDISPUTABLE evidence.

But, it is interesting.

This is exactly why I was happy to see the Patriots lose.

If they were caught videotaping the jets (one of the worst teams in the nfl during the last 4 yrs or so) signal. They are definitely doing so much more to videotape the big dawgs aka the colts, steelers, chargers etc. Jets current coach was NE defensive coordinator under Bilicheat. How in the freaking world do you go about trying to steal his schemes--offense/defense whichever one applies. NE is a piece of **** organization including their owner and the coach. The team can keep their rings but the coach needs to striped of all his records and accomplishments at NE plus be given a lifetime ban for coaching in the nfl. I am sure Notre Dame wouldn't mind making him their new OC.

I found it interesting when my hubby told me that the NFL network said yesterday that the Giants refused to let NE have a final walk through on practice. Coughlin knew something was going on. Oh well, we may never know the truth. Enough is enough. Way to go Giants. I'm done on the topic.
