read this article this AM, and still cannot figure out what it is about, my view is that the Patriots try every angle and every possibility to win, just because most of the rest of the coaches are dumb as rocks, shouldn't they try.. I guess open season on the Pats continues.. maybe Spinctre can investigate these allegations also..
With the advances have come new temptations for coaches to gain an unfair advantage. Every Monday during the football season, the league says, it fields complaints from and about many teams.
If a persistent problem is identified, the league’s eight-member competition committee suggests changes to rules. In discussions of changes since 2000, one team, the New England Patriots, has surfaced more than any other, according to a longtime N.F.L. team executive with direct knowledge of the meetings.
The committee heard accusations that the Patriots had taped opposing coaches’ signals, placed microphones on defensive players to steal quarterbacks’ audible signals and manipulated clocks and coach-to-quarterback radio systems....
The N.F.L. team executive said the changes to the manual matched complaints against the Patriots.
“When they change the rules, they don’t mention teams,” the executive said. “But in my mind, a lot of it was from New England.”
