    Reading that article, I was glad to see what Czarnecki said about the Rams walk-through (taping it to gain info would have been a joke), but I wonder why it took so long for someone in the media to actually say this?

    I remember a number of us (patsfans.com members) said the very same thing, back when the Patriots were first accused of taping that walk-through.

    I called in on Felger's show a while back and made the point that the walk-through taping would be useless because there was 18 weeks of tape on the Rams tendencies, formations, etc. but he kept going back to the fact that BB would be suspended if there is a tape.

    They have been waiting this long because they wanted blood and they wanted to spin it their way. With the STANDING OVATION (HELL YA!) that Bill and Kraft got today, it's looking more and more like the NFL might just take a hard line against Walsh and say, "What ever you got you got on your own and if you ain't got nothing..........OH MY GOD ARE WE GOING TO SUE YOUR ASS OFF."

    That is a great question and I hope someone in the media offers some commentary on this angle.

    I would guess that Czarnecki wasn't the only journalist present for the Rams walk-through and I can't believe that every one else's memory was hazy about how serious or casual the event was.

    Along the same vein, no one else knew that Martz was worried about the Saints taping their practices? Why would he be worried? I thought only one team in league history ever taped signals or practices and they weren't from New Orleans. :rolleyes:

    Martz and Warner have spoken to reporters about this alleged incident, but I don't remember reading them characterizing the walk-through as relaxed or "disorganized." I don't remember potential spying by the Saints being mentioned before. Did they not mention those things, or were they excluded from the articles so the media could present a more straight-forward story?

    It's interesting to read now, but frustrating that Czarnecki (and others) could have said this 2 months ago.

    Even the day of the Superbowl.. Jimmy Johnson, Howie Long et al all said that filming a walkthrough would not be helpful.. all this is the idle, bored press trying to create problems for the leagues finest franchise, but underreporting this type of info, btw Martz and the Rams could have said something also, so there is complicity.. there was not even some smoke, all the while Matt Walsh got some free fact time.. and wasted time in our lives that we will never get back.

    I don't think that it was ever reported, but I DO think it's funny that no one has picked this story up and asked some folks that would know the definitive answer.

    Let's see how much gets said about the Saints and Martz' fear of the walk through becomes of them taping it. Oh yeah, nothing will get said. Hurricane Katrina just happened two years ago and the Saints can do no wrong.

    Is it me, or is it just the Pats that get raked over the coals for every little thing they do? I don't seem to remember a big thing last year when the league caught the Dolphins getting Brady's cadances on audio then using it in the game. How is that any different from what we did?

    The difference:

    Dolphins 1 - 15
    Patriots 16 - 0

    Hate fuels the fire.

    Eh, my bad. I didn't mean last year. I meant two seasons ago when the Fish shut us out at their house.
