SPYING AN INTERNAL THING, TOO

As the heat continues to rise regarding Spygate II, a reader has forwarded to us a link to a 1999 item from Mike Freeman, then of the New York Times and currently with CBSSports.com, regarding the possibility that the New York Jets (for whom Pats coach Bill Belichick worked at the time), might have been secretly videotaping . . . their own players . . . in the locker room.

The issue came up because an unnamed Jets defensive player entered a small room at the team's practice facility, which contained a bank of video screens. Some of the monitors included images of the locker room.

"A lot of things around here have knocked me for a loop, but this is one of the biggest,'' said the player. ''My first thought was, 'Has the team been spying on us?'''

In Freeman's article, NFLPA Executive Director Gene Upshaw said that he believes 25 percent of the league's teams use hidden cameras in the locker room.

But Upshaw didn't seem to be all that bothered by it.

"When I'm in Denver, in a meeting with the players at the Broncos' facility, you see certain things in the room and know they're not lights," Upshaw said. "I know management is listening. When I'm in Cincinnati, I know Owner Mike Brown is listening. I don't want to say how I know, but I know. But when it comes to this issue of cameras around the players, it's not a big deal to me, because they are there for the security of our players, and obviously the safety of the players is a primary concern for me. I'd rather err on the side of caution, than have some nut come into the locker room and do something.''

But, Gene, are hidden cameras that no one knows about really going to deter a "nut" from doing anything?

Art Modell, who owned the Ravens at the time, confirmed Upshaw's beliefs: ''Some teams are using surveillance equipment in the locker room, yes. But I'd fire the first guy who did that here. No video cameras, no audiotapes, no eavesdropping.''

''This is a sensitive issue,'' Upshaw said. ''I'm sure it will be talked about a lot in the future.''

It hasn't been. But given the current focus on things the Patriots did or didn't do, let's not forget that there are 31 other NFL franchises that might be doing plenty of things that they shouldn't be doing, and that they merely haven't gotten caught.

So what you're trying to say is that because the jets might have done something wrong that makes the cheatriots blame-free in spygate 1-2 and 3? Is that what you're trying to get at? I don't understand the tone of your post or the point of this thread? Are you trying to get a rise out of Jets fans? Trying to make us feel the guilt and shame that you feel? It is not gonna work. If Parcells likes watching large black men in the showers, I don't give a ****. It'll make him have a very good resume to become a future JN mod.

The JETS didnt win anything that year... so its really not an issue...

The Pats cheated for years and gained a competitive advantage... and its no coicedence that the spying followed BB... he was the one behind it and has admitted it...

bbbwwwwwaaahhhhhhh

Whats going to happen when it comes out that the Jets cheated too?

It won't come out, that's what. When you find some proof let us know - but until then you posting about it like it's fact is pure garbage.

Yes it will come out.

Leahy and Specter will investigate the whole league. Just watch. They wont stop at NE. Are you kidding me Man?

Jimmy Johnson already admitted that he taped with the Boys and that the Indy OL coach was the best in the business. Right on WFAN. Its likely archived if you dont beleive me.

I have heard Jimmy's comments which I think he was stupid for making and I have already said that other teams have also probably taped signals. I don't think it was widespread though and certainly no one has jumped to the defense of taping walk throughs and such. None that I have heard anyway. But to jump to a conclusion at this point that anyone other than the Patriots have taped defensive signals without proof is premature at this point.

How is it jumping to conclusions when a former HC and respected member of the media admits that he knows of at least 1 other NFL team that taped signals? If Johnson lied about the Indy coach then why didnt that person come out and clear his name?

Silence = Guilt

And, Mangino has been very quiet TOO.

Oh, I'm sorry. Typo. Perverts, plural. The hull of your ship is busted. It'll be sinking in Boston Harbor any minute now.

Not according to the 5th amendment.

Jimmie Johnson has not been around for a while. Again there is only proof right now that one team cheated and until proven otherwise that is all there is to it.
