"If someone could give even one scenario that could prove the Pats were somehow using that film on gamedays, I'd rethink my opinion.
They were using a handheld camcorder with a tape in it that even chief Patriot witness Walsh admitted wasn't handed in until after the game. So it wasn't even an elaborate way to steal signs (Which is not illegal, BTW).
Scouts inc. wrote a piece (I'll try to find it) in which they said the Pats (and other teams that did it) would match the tape of the signals, downs, and defensive alignment to study tendencies. Usually by the film group a few weeks after the game. And if the team was stupid enough not to change their defensive signals the next time they played, well that was gravy. "
Why do I constantly read people say that we don't know what was on the tapes when they showed the tapes Walsh had in their entirety on the NFL network and ESPN? Do they think there was something drastically different on the other tapes? I mean seriously?
Also it's great how Steeler fans continue to ignore their history of steroids, their team doctor getting busted for HGH, and the refs basically rigging Superbowl 40 for them.
The thing about Spygate is that there was no cover up. The Patriots admitted doing it. They turned over the tapes. They paid the fines. Belichick did a public me culpa.
And somehow the Patriots soldiered on by destroying every team in their path until the Super Bowl and the aforementioned stapling of the balls. Ouch!
I am not going to read this book. Bryan O'Leary has zero credibility and unless he's got some extraordinary inside sources, any of us could write that book. There are threads on here about Spygate that are longer and better informed than that book.
If Michael Holley, Seth Mnookin author of the great book "Feeding the Monster", (Bio | Seth Mnookin), David Halberstam ("The Education of a Coach"), or Jon Feinstein put a book together about Spygate, I'd be all over it.
Otherwise, its just a guy trying to make money, and Bryan O'Leary ain't getting any of mine.
Bryan O'Leary is a first time author and die hard NFL fan.
He has over 20 year's experience in the money management
arena, currently creating commodity trading strategies. Married
with three daughters, O'Leary lives in the Dallas, Texas area.
LOL! Because a commodities trader can get all the inside story of Spygate.
