Congratulations to the NY football Giants on their upset victory over the New England P*tri*ts. I'd like to personally thank David Tyree for "the catch" and Plexiglass B for predicting a beat down by the Giants D. Thank goodness it's over, bring on the pitchers and the catchers (and no, Max, I'm not talking about mod lounge activities, so settle down over there...).

On to the nominations:

Oh, and what of the Yankees? Pettite and Mussina are spring chickens? And we expect them to throw the kids 200 innings? That would be responsible.

Hughes and Joba and pray for 'roids?

I was unaware that Specter had spoke out against the NFL in the past few months, most notably about the television packages the NFL runs. If Goodell did indeed destroy credible evidence of past cheating than he and the Pats could have mucked it up for the rest of the NFL real good and Specter is right on the money.

He said he was going to introduce legislation in the next session in hopes of eliminating the league's freedom from antitrust laws and if it turns out that Goodell did indeed destroy important documents that taints The patriots, than the Senate could have more ammo to strip the NFL of their antitrust exemption. If you think that the senate should have somethign better to do Ie. healthcare, school systems etc. than your looking at the wrong branch of the senate. This is the Sentiate Judiciary Committe and one of their jobs is to uphold the antitrust laws and we are lucky that the NFL still has one. If they get rid of it you can wave goodbye to players staying in college for 3 years, you'll see more upstart leagues, the NFL will lose out on money with the cable companies and than that will only cause more bickering amongst the players of how they distribute the earnings for the year etc.

There is plenty of presedence already set as well; a few years ago the Senate said that the NFL was acting as a monopoly, which obviously we would be due to the antitrust exmeption, during the USFL law suite and the maurice clarett law suite. In 2007 the senate passed Railroad Antitrust Enforcement Act of 2007 stating that they had provided unreliable services while charging unfair prices etc. There aren't too many competing leagues against the NFL, but there certainly have been those who have tried.

Bottom line is, that the NFL has unrestrained monopoly power and if they wish to keep it they will need to avoid things like spygate and the like. I don't pretend to be an expert on these types of cases, but from the little research i've done on it Specter actually has an obligation to look into this situation, the fact he's an eagles fan is just a poor coincidence.

That goes more than a bit beyond stealing signs that get changed regularly anyway. THAT is major, major cheating. And if NE didn't (or doesn't) think so, then why not invite the goddamn media to tape all their own practices & run-thru's & distribute said recordings to all of their future opponents.

This, to me, is worse - much, much worse - and has some actual teeth. Because unlike stealing signs (which occurs in all sports & is generally considered part of the game to an extent), this is different in one major aspect: the other team was not aware that they were being watched (let alone taped).

To me, that is not merely a subtle difference, to say the least. It's all the difference in the world. And would call ALL of their previous rings into question.

Topic: Questions I have about spygate II

Originally Posted by GodWearsAGrayHoodie

1) According to various media accounts and Matt Walsh’s current employers bio on him, Mr. Walsh left the Patriots in 2003

However, according to his own wedding announcement he left in January 2002.

http://www.projo.com/weddings/conten...5x.33494a.html

The Patriots went to the SB that year, which means he left before the season was over. A year later he gets a job working with NFL Europe. Maybe there was a typo or maybe he lied to his employer so it didn’t look like he was unemployed for a year.

2) Speaking of creditability does it bother anyone that he claims to have spent parts of two seasons on the golf team, the college's sports information office has no record of him in its files?

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3226465

3) Walsh hints to have copies of said tapes with evidence of Patriots cheating. I doubt Patriot policy would allow him to make copies of tapes for his personal use, so if he did they are stolen. Does he actually claim to have hard evidence or is the media just jumping to conclusions?

4) If we are talking about the Patriots spying on the Rams why aren’t we also talking about the Rams spying on the Patriots?

http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpag...51C0A9649C8B63

"Halfway through practice, Patriots' linebackers coach Pepper Johnson noticed something in a third-floor window of a house next to the field.

Club and league officials said a telescope was clearly visible in the window, according to a pool report, and that 15 minutes later, a person appeared at the window, and then vanished.

Officials scanned the window with binoculars, but the person never returned."

5) According to this story. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3226465

"Obviously, Mangini knew what was going on and it had been going on for a while," Walsh said. "They tried to catch them doing it last year and weren't able to. So they were just waiting for them to throw the camera up this year on the sideline. But afterwards, I get the impression the league said to them, 'Hey, kind of back down from this; let us take care of it,' because Mangini probably could have come out and said more, made more of a deal out of it if he wanted to."

Mr. Walsh has inside information that the Jets tried and failed to catch the Pats spying in 2006. Whether he left in 2002 or 2003... how does he have inside information about 2006?

6) According to http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/playof...ory?id=3227245

The unnamed source we all assume is Walsh claims that a Patriots employee stayed behind and video taped the event

"According to the report, an unnamed source close to the team during the 2001 season said that following the Patriots' walk-through at the Louisiana Superdome, a member of the team's video staff stayed behind and taped the Rams' walk-through -- a non-contact, no-pads practice at reduced speed in which a team goes through its plays.

The cameraman was not asked to identify himself or produce a press pass and later rode the media shuttle back to the Patriots' hotel, the source told the Herald. It is not known what became of the tape, or whether the cameraman made the tape on his own initiative or at someone else's instruction, according to the report."

Yet according to http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/foo...s_practice_ap/

Practices are a closed event so he could not hide among the media....

Or maybe someone thought he was a family member of one of the Rams, and he took a tape the equivalent to the Rams family home video....

Yeah thats the edge the Pats need...film of the Ram players hugging their kids.

7) Specter is Comcast’s lead senator in the fight with the NFL over if it should be part of basic cable or a sport package. According to opensecrets.org his second largest donor is Comcast. How is what the senator doing any different than the shake down of Moss?

8) According to http://www.philly.com/inquirer/front..._sparring.html

The senator or his chief of staff attempted to use the office to get tickets for the SB. Is that a violation of senate ethic rules?

9) When did the rules about side line video taping go in to effect? Best as I can tell it wasn’t until 2006, but I might be wrong. If it wasn’t in effect when Walsh worked with the Patriots, why would it matter if they taped then?

As this story was timed to break when it would be very difficult to verify or discredit the story before the biggest football game of the year...might make sense to wait until all the facts come out, before you believe one fired employee with an axe to grind.

As an aside, why didn't they throw it to Wes Welker and let the heart of a lion bring them home the championship and complete the pursuit of perfection?

Achievements vanish in a New York minute

Globe Columnist / February 5, 2008

PHOENIX - They were always about history, these 2007-08 Patriots. Most points in history. Most touchdowns in history. First 18-0 team in history. But when it was all over, Bill Belichick's History Boys were a failure. They did not accomplish their goal. They lost the Super Bowl. They blew a lead in the final minute.

In the end, the new Patriots reminded us of the old Red Sox. Ouch.

Now there will be no more talk about "greatest ever." No making fun of Mercury Morris and the still-one-and-only undefeated 1972 Miami Dolphins. No more comparisons to the dynasties of Green Bay, Chicago, Pittsburgh, or San Francisco. The muscle-flexing 18-1 Patriots don't even go down as the best New England team of all time.

"Tonight doesn't take away from anything we have done over the course of the season," Tom Brady said late Sunday.

Yes, it does. Take all your pinball victories (remember those long-ago days of 52-7 and 56-10?) and lock them away. The Patriots shredded the NFL record book (and the league rulebook, if you believe Senator Arlen Specter), but they did not accomplish their goal. They did not win the Super Bowl. By their own standards of excellence, this season is a failure - same as 2005, when they were eliminated by the Broncos, and 2006, when the Colts bounced them in the AFC Championship.

It's pretty clear that the Patriots peaked too early - very unBelichickian. The rout of the Bills Nov. 18 was the pinnacle. In that game, Randy Moss caught four touchdown passes in the first half. It was 35-7 at intermission and the Patriots kept piling on the points all the way to 56-10. A week later, the Eagles came to Foxborough and went facemask-to-facemask with the Patriots for four quarters. The Patriots were never truly dominant after the Philadelphia game. In the eight games before the Super Bowl, their best showing was a 34-13 rout of the Steelers.

So they were ripe for an upset, and the Giants were just the team to do it. Despite losing six games during the regular season, including a 41-17 beating at home against the non-playoff Vikings Nov. 25, the Giants were well-positioned to match New England in the Super Bowl.

There was a playoff atmosphere in the "meaningless" regular-season finale between the Pats and G-Men in late December and that game served the Giants well Sunday night in Glendale. The Giants were not afraid of the Patriots. They knew the only way to stop New England was to get to Brady. And they had guys who could do it.

New York also had a coach who was not intimidated by the legend of Belichick. Week after week, arrogant Patriots fans came to assume that the guy on the other sideline was a stooge. Not so with Tom Coughlin. He's 61 years old. He's not afraid to fail. And he outcoached Belichick in the Super Bowl. "The Giants just had a better game plan," said Moss

It's hard not to come back to New England's decision to go for a first down on a fourth-and-13 from the Giants 31 midway through the third quarter. Clearly not trusting kicker Stephen Gostkowski, the Patriots went for broke and Brady's heave to Jabar Gaffney was incomplete.

more stories like this

"It was a 50-yard field goal," reasoned Belichick.

Probably more like 48. But the kicking conditions were ideal. We're pretty sure Belichick would have gone for the 3 points if he'd had a vintage Adam Vinatieri on the sideline.

Another call that backfired was the decision to blitz on Eli Manning's game-winning touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress. It was a first-and-10 play from the 13 and the Giants had to have a touchdown, not a field goal. The play was over once Manning read the blitz (I think brother Peyton prepared him for this). Eyes as big as satellite dishes, Eli had Plaxico Burress isolated on the overmatched, chest-thumping Ellis Hobbs ("sorriest corner in the league," according to Philip Rivers), and the TD was embarrassingly easy.

A few words about Belichick's comportment at the finish: When the Patriots gave up the ball on downs and were officially set to lose, Belichick walked across the field and shook Coughlin's hand even though there was still one second remaining on the clock. Then Belichick left the field before Manning and the Giants took over for the final kneel-down.

There was still one play to go and Belichick was already gone. He looked like a spoilsport - like the Detroit Pistons walking off the floor at the Palace of Auburn Hills when they finally yielded the Eastern Conference title to the Chicago Bulls. Bill Parcells was flogged for not flying home with his team when the Patriots lost the Super Bowl to the Packers in New Orleans. What about this?

In fairness, it's possible Belichick thought the officials were going to waive the final play. There was only one second on the clock and the field was already littered with celebrating Giants. But we don't know what Belichick was thinking because he shifted into combat mode in a remarkably brief postgame interview. I expected him to conclude his terse interview with, "You won't have Nixon to kick around anymore."

It was a bad ending all around. It had a distinct 2003 ALCS feel. Grady Little. Aaron Boone. You name it. And it's not going to be much fun to be around your New York friends for a while. This time the New Yorkers have the embraceable winners - like Joe Namath's Jets, Willis Reed's Knicks, and the 1969 Mets.

Back in New England, we are stuck with perfectus interruptus, more rumors of cheating, an embattled coach who looks like a sore loser, and the first 18-1 losing season in the history of sports.

Humble pie was delicious as an abstract motivational tool. But when you have to actually take a bite, it tastes terrible.

Today..in 2008..comparing Randy Moss to Jerry Rice is a slap in Jerry's face. It's not the off the field things that bother me..it's his time in Oakland where he didn't try, and just went through the motions. He compiled stat after stat and when the team wasn't performing..he figured "**** it,they pay me anyway so why even bother?".

Maybe if he tried..the team would have performed better. No one held a gun to his head and told him to play in Oak. He chose there..and knew what he was getting in to.

The bottom line is...Randy Moss is a great talent, and a great player WHEN HE WANTS TO BE. He should not have the right, just like any other player to take plays off, or play when he wants to. Randy Moss is only out for Randy Moss..he could care less what his fans, the media, his coaches or team mates think about him. On 3rd and 20 in the SB, a crucial play in a game almost over..at least jump for the damn ball. Try and get a PI call that deep in the territory..because then you are putting your team in a spot to win or tie.

Randy Moss used the Patriots in 2007-08 like a cheap whore..because Randy got his exposure on a good team, got his exposure playing with an all-pro QB, got his exposure in the playoffs and git his exposure breaking records..not to mention his T-Rex TD dance.

I can't root for this guy anymore..because he isn't as great as I once thought he was.

Things are not going to be getting any prettier for your scandalized organization any time soon, Snarla. I'm thinking this is bigger and more pervasive than we'll ever know, but I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't love eating popcorn while watching the lid blow off. Entertain me! Goodell folded like cheap lawn furniture and should have suspended him along with fines, and this isn't going away (destroying evidence). In all honesty, what bugged me the most all year was how 'Belichick responded to this' and 'He has a chip on his shoulder, and he's got something to prove' and 'This has really galvanized the team' - as if HE was the one wronged. And, how announcers would purposefully AVOID the word cheating while they were doing that. Why? They didn't want to be left off his Christmas list? He was officially found guilty of cheating by the league. He got pissed off he got fingered and rallied his troops to new levels of arrogance in a transparent attempt to deflect his own connivance. He ain't the hero you think he is. And, if he hadn't stolen money from a dying old man, stayed with the Jets and behaved the same way, I'd be saying the same exact thing.

There are actually some Jets fans who don't despise the Patriots because they 'win'. There are actually some Jets fans who don't despise the Patriots because of sour grapes. I guess my main point is that a great deal of NE fans just won't call a spade a spade and say out loud what it is. A great deal of NE fans do everything possible to excuse it or explain it away. Worse yet, a great deal of them seriously feel they're being wronged and unjustly maligned. And to be fair, there are a handful of New England fans who openly acknowledge the taint. I respect that.

(Editor's Note: GREAT post, Jeto - right on the mark! Excellent stuff.)

This has nothing to do with the Jets. This is about your team and the fraud they have been committing on the rest of the league for the last 8 years. You bashing the jets just makes you look more and more like the troll you are.

I for one was planning to root for New England, but when it all came down on Saturday night and into Super Bowl Sunday, I decided the best thing to do was to root against your biggest rival. Its not the Giants organization we hate, its the d'bag fans of the Giants a lot of us hate and trust me, I still do hate them with an undying passion. BUT, to see the CHEATERS CHOKE on the biggest stage of them all, I'll take all the Giants praising talk for the next month before its all Mets and Yankees, and even already the talk on the radio is more Johan Santana than anything else.

But hey, at least its not like Boston where the Patriots are just Red Sox fans with nothing to do in the winter.

The Patriots had no real positive history (save a few moments here and there) until Parcells came aboard. The Jest fanbase is based on one shining moment - and a brazen QB with real sex appeal living in the grandest city of them all.

I have a problem being called a front runner by a fanbase that openly rooted for a team they play second fiddle to. I will give those that live out of the tri-state area a break - you don't live it. But those of you that go to all the games/live in the area? Are you kidding me? The stadium says "Giants" on it. The Jets were hardly talked about before - forget about it now. Where's the pride? Is second class okay? You enjoy being in steerage? I don't get it - then again there is only one team for each sport in my town so I may be talking out of my arse - but it just seems weird to me that you would rather play second fiddle to the team that beats your arse in the media all the time, than be a team that plays in the same division as the Pats.

Congrats to Lady Jet on her POTW win. Lady Jet just barely beat out Jeto for the win this week, so the Assist of the Week (and Runner-up post) to to Jeto. It's an all ladies week around here folks - just like the old days when Maxman had the mods dress in drag. Congratulations to two of my personal favorites, Ms. Lady Jet and Ms. Jetophile. For you, LJ- wear it well:

I truly would like to take the time to thank Sperm for the nom, as well as all the people who gave me props, Afo (yeah, you'll get a sammy, ;)), RSJ, DaBrick, Kid, joewilly and Bob.

Of course a huge thank you to Beans, who always does an amazing job with this.

I'd also like to thank the Justin Tuck of course, Osi and Strahan, Eli and Tyree and the 18-1 Pats. ;)

However, I kinda feel strange about this. I mean, the lesson we should have learned this week was that Cheaters never win. And yet, I kinda feel like a dirty, stinkin' Belicheat. I mean, if the commissioner were to tell the ref to stop the game and declare a winner, that would be cheatin', right?

Well, that may have happened here. So you might want to consider stripping me of my "title" and handing it to Jeto for an absolutely killer post!

:cheers:
