    I love Parcells confronting Young. What a self-righteousness douchebag he is.

    But then they would have to talk football and everyone would see how stupid they really are.

    Quit whining. You know if spy gate were about the Colts you guys would have a field day talking about it. But since it's about the Pats we need to quit talking about it.

    I'm not a Pats fan, I'm a Bengal fan and I am sick of hearing about it. When something new happens, report it. Until then, STFU!

    I'm afraid we are going to hear about all year.

    Some idiots just don't know when to quit...(see: Barry Bonds)

    The honest truth is Pats fans wouldn't let you hear the last of it if the Bengals or Colts got caught cheating. Mort even said the commish swept it under the rug to protect the shield (NFL logo) the truth is there is probably more to this story.

    I normally like Steve Young, but he seems to be playing down to Emmitt's level of idiocy. Both those idiots STILL believe that taped signals can decoded and applied to the game they're taken from. As long as this kind of misinformation keeps getting put out there, people will be misinformed and the "cheaters" crap will perpetuate.

    It's the first MNF game with the Pats, so it was a given that they were going to talk about it.

    The Parcells takedown of Steve Young was pretty awesome.

    Maybe some would. But I heard about the Bengals "legal problems" for a year and a half. Only spygate quieted that. The media beats a dead horse until they find another dead horse to beat. Let it die and move on.

    If "the honest truth" is what you're after, perhaps you should look into the underhanded tactics employed by your boy Darth Polian. You know nothing. Go away.

    Why are you here? Taking some last shots before the one year dynasty hits a wall.

    Be gone....and take your stench with you.

    Goodell swept it under the rug?

    He would risk his integrity and career as comish for the Pats?

    I would think he's smarter than to take a risk like that.

    Well the Pats are seen as the model franchise, if they're seen as cheaters then the integrity of the league takes a hit, because the battle cry would be "everyone does it, the pats just got caught."

    So yeah he swept it under the rug for that reason.

    disagree. It's a ridiculous story, no matter which team did this. Nobodoy is being truly honest about it, and I think that's empirically bogus and the EXACT thing that is wrong with the media - in sports and out.

    heh...this 18>12 mutt is a real genius...of course the Colts don't need cameras...they just have Polian change the rules every year until EVERY SINGLE RULE favors Peytie Pout and his offense

    Havfe no idea what 18>12 means but I do know that nothing could be better than YOU killing yourself.

    I'm looking at this from the view of the commish. He thinks because he said the Pats didn't use that video in the Jets game then that vindicates the Pats. Of course ppl are going to speculate and say the Pats have cheated since day 1.



    I agree it's a dumb story now, because the tapes are destroyed and we'll never know how deep this video taping business went. I always get this Peyton tea bagged or mooned some female in College from Pats fans. If it was found out the Colts taped signals everyone would be like oh so that's why the Colts move the ball so well they cheat.

    This is true, I mean, how many times have we heard about phantom rule changes, piped in noise, and faulty AC units??

    If I could have reach into my TV and grabbed Tony K, I would have beaten him like a rented mule.

    It's not like he hasn't given his opinion on this 1001 times already. He has to yap in the middle of a game.

    Well..we will never know if that is true...because there's no way Polien and Dungy would ever get caught...it's hard to catch the wolves when they control puppet Goodell.

    This is exactly what irks Pats fans about the whole "Cameragate" issue. You do realize that it's NOT against the rules to tape the other teams signals, but only to where and how you tape them, don't you?

    There are "coaches cameras" positioned at approved locations in ALL NFL stadiums. Those cameras can tape ANYTHING they want, including the other teams signals.

    The Pats were penalized for violating and ignoring the warning for the rule of having a camera on the sidelines, NOT for what they recorded with that camera.

    So, deny it all you want, but right now Tony Dungy and his staff are reviewing numerous game tapes showing their opponents sideline and trying to decipher their defensive signals in preparation for possible future games.

    I understand it doesn't help support the agenda of opposing teams fans, coaches and players since it takes away their excuse for why they lost. Anyone who thinks the mere presence of a video camera on the Pats sidelines was the difference between winning or losing is all but admitting they don't know very much about football.

    Excellent articulation in clear terms. Thanks!

    If this is true, then why didn't we (meaning the Pats FO) explain it in a simple letter or interview that would have gone a long way in clearing up all loose talk/speculation/suspicion? By choosing not to address the issue and wanting to 'move-on', we are offering more fodder to everyone to keep this going on for many years. :mad:

    Don't get me wrong. I too am elated when Lady Tomlinson and Ward make all kind of disparaging remarks because this will galvanize us into pulverizing them.

    However, this motivation that paves the way for a solid W is only for this season.

    Whereas, the 'cheating' tag - which we allow most of the media and ex-football 'analyst' to hit us with - will always stick with us if we don't make any strong efforts to hit back at this smear campaign and clear the confusion.

    Will this be done later after the season? I hope so...

    18>12 is a reference to Manning (jersey #18) and Brady (#12). It's pretty lame.

    ESPN is obsessed with spygate. Hope they keep it up it will only give the Pats more incentive. I never listen to MNF, just watch with audio turned off and radio turned on. Could ESPN slip in any more commercials . Several times they missed the start of a play because they just had to get that little extra commercial break.
