You guys have no one to blame except Bill.
And one more thing. I keep reading again and again on this board that the NFL endorses, accepts encourages stealing signs and so having video is not that big of a deal. This is faulty logic on many fronts. First, if having video was no big deal then why break the rules? BB's "interpretation of the rules was incorrect" ranks right up there with Bill Clinton's debating the word "is". The rule is clear as can be.
Second, Im sure the NFL would like to see stealing signs disappear from the game but there is nothing they can do about it. How can you stop someone from looking at the opposing sidelines? You can't. So they do what they can to limit it and prevent technology from being leveraged to gain an unfair advantage.
Just take your lumps now and the story will eventually fade. But acting like a group that's been persecuted is juvenille. Mumbles has accepted responsibility for it, you all should take him at hs word.
Why don't you take the advice of your own screen name and process your envy elsewhere?
