It's cheating but nothing will happen to the Patriots. Maybe a slap on the hand, nothing more and the truth is the Patriots know nothing bad will really happen to them which makes the cheating worth it to them.

What do text messages tell us about New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's involvement? - NFL Videos
Which makes the NFL the real bad guys in all of this.

Considering they released the report after the draft, it makes the NFL totally complicit.

Can you imagine if your employer fired you for "more probable than not" of stealing from the company with no direct evidence of you actually doing it?

How big would that lawsuit be?

Most employment relationships are at-will. They don't need a good reason to fire you.
