    500K to belichick, 250K to the PAts. First rounder if they make the playoffs, 2nd and 3rd if they do not.

    Whatever, lets move on.

    Tying the pick to how good we are just show what a joke Goodell is.

    Doesn't matter. The 32nd pick is like a second rounder anyway!!!

    Haha the draft pick being defined by how well they do this year is not something I've heard anyone predict or mention. I guess this is official tomorrow?

    Destroy the CBA. Let the big market teams rein. End the salary cap. Let Roger Goodell send out another memo and pick up the pieces.

    Actually, this is not that bad. First round pick hurts, but the suspension would be worse in my estimation. In addition, you know that trades will happen and the team will end up with a decent draft next year. You know there were a lot of people in the league who wanted to see him suspended and are probably pretty disappointed. Glad this is over, but it makes me wonder if other teams are going to be scrutinized this year. I sure hope so.

    Well the Pats still have a first rounder, BB doesnt get suspended. I think that Pats got off lucky if you ask me. I'm surprised there isnt a suspension in there and I suspect it is because of Kraft's influence. Bring on SD!!

    They have San Francisco's first rounder next year anyway. Losing a first rounder (okay, assuming they make the playoffs) sucks, but I think they'll survive...

    i dont agree the predicate of making the playoffs
    God forbid -if brady misses time and we dont make the playoffs then we lose the 2nd and 3rd for what ?

    I wouldve rather have him decide what picks he want to take and taken them

    this is nothing... this much money is nothing for BB or especially the team AND 1st rounder is no big deal since BB already thought of that... We do have 2 this year... sorry :singing:

    Well I think the lose of a first rounder is BS (we all know their making the playoffs) but at least BB doesn't get suspended at all.

    I was pretty close on the overall fine. The thing about this being such a large punishment means that we'll have to hear about this for weeks and the commishioners comments make it even worse.

    I don't know, at least the waiting is over.

    commish is a joke to release the info this way. ante up and make a statement instead of hiding behind adam schefter. how do you respect a guy that can't release the info through a live statement.

    This is probably just the tip of the iceberg, and that probably infuriates Goodell more than anything. He expects more out of people who have been in the league for three plus decades and probably know things that would undermine the league's seemingly teflon image (lets face it, even after all the Bengals arrests, Mike Vick, and this, people still like the NFL more than the NBA or MLB).

    The league could start getting dragged down to David Sternville if the sign stealing is as common as some claim and more of it comes to light.

    Well hopefully the Pats make it the #32 pick that gets taken away.

    Too much IMHO, would it have been less if they didn't have multiple 1st round picks.

    Well,
    Looks like we trade a #1 for a Lombardi. I can handle that....If SF is in the top 10, we can trade that for a 20 something, and a 1 next year...

    I could care less about the fine....really the Patriots and BB have millions so the fine isn't that big of a deal when it comes to their wallets. But, the lose of a first round draft pick isn't even close to getting off easy.

    It's been in the light, but apparently even many players don't know it, and that's why they're bashing the Pats like they're the only ones doing it.
    Stealing signs is a job description for advance scouts. That's what they do.
    The videotape is the whole problem. It's the ONLY problem.

    This is EXTREMELY unfair......so GODdell is basically going to punish the Patriots for MAKING THE *#% playoffs?? Obviously, Polian or some other frightened owner just tried to load the deck for himself.........SO if the Pats make the playoffs they LOSE big......and if they don't they still get f'd....How about just taking a 2nd and 3rd and a fine Roger....would that have not been fair? I would have rather seen a suspension of BB (who was the only one that committed the violation) a fine to him, and taking our 2nd and 3rd for next year....that would have been fair......

    All I can hope for is that all these critics go through bitter, horrible divorces or some other public spectacle that gets dragged out through the mud affecting their families, teams, etc etc....so they and their fans can see how it feels.........what a sad pathetic day in the history of the NFL

    GO PATS!!!!
