    Charley Casserly, on the NFL Today, reports the Patriots were warned by the NFL earlier in the season after they dressed somebody in coaches' attire on the sidelines and had him tape the opposing QB's signals. Casserly said that is against the rules, but acquiring the special network audio is not.

    I just caught that too on CBS. That's pretty damn funny.

    He also mentioned how some team (he didn't say) had a D-Lineman wear a microphone to tape the Qbs audibles.

    Well this might explain their "well we don't care, its not big deal" attitude when the pats were asked about Miami stealing signals

    Because CBS pays him - which is more than any team with any sense would do after his tenure with the Texans was shown to be such stunning success! :D

    The guy has a rep for being instrumental in the Gibbs' Dynasty of years past, but I'd say he defines the Peter Principal.

    Dale Arnold reports Stacey James issued a statement saying this report was false and the incident never occurred.

    Re: Casserly: Pats attempted to tape QB signals

    Casserly used to have some credibility, but now has joined the rest of the crew who want ratings, integrity is not important... it is all about ratings and entertainment. Glad Stacy James and BB responded as readily as they did.

    Ha! I knew I'd find this some day. The search archive omits most of December 06 because of a technical problem, but I searched this down.

    The way this is going, we're about 2 days away from having the Pats accused of masterminding 9-11 and shooting both Kennedys.

    Re: Casserly: Pats attempted to tape QB signals

    If the NYDaily news is to be believed, it was Mangini who was already ratting out the Pats back then., probably to Casserly, or to the competition committee who told Casserly. Mean while, Mangini was stealing Patriot signals to beat them in week 10, and selling them to Miami later in the season (my own theory in a thread called "PsyOps" last season).
