    From Tomase's blog (please, no rocks or rotten tomatos!):

    That takes the cake. As far as I'm concerned this quote backs Belichick's story 100%. The violation of the rule was the use of a camera versus the use of a pen and pencil. Another NFL team could have reams and reams of other teams defensive calls written down, and they are no less "cheaters" than the Patriots.

    Exactly, Belichick just used a more efficient, time effective way to do what everyone else does.

    This is a misleading thread title.

    There is no mention of Shannon Sharpe anywhere in this thread.

    You mean got caught, Fisher never gives a straight answer on anything, including his own team.

    And another stupid pointless worthless annoying post from a stupid pathetic person with too much time on his hands.

    Seriously--your little act is way old, find new material.

    Who cares what some bitter Superbowl losing grade A Dbag says about us. The guy is a straight up liar in my opinion when he says "no other team does it" the overall vibe from this whole "scandal" is a lot of teams do. Maybe the NFL should look into allegations that Fisher orders on field hits (Merriman). Not to mention two seasons ago in our finale against them, i lost count how many times Titan defenders took dives at Brady's knees. Classy guy.

    No Jersey Selected

    Heck.
    Let's just settle this right now and make a rule that bans Bill Belichick from coaching in the NFL so it's fair for everyone else that can't think outside of the box and has to coach within very finite parameters.

    But Jeff Fisher is a liar. Read that quote again. The guy is a liar.

    Here are some teams that tape signals:

    Jets (admitted this year)
    Broncos (were caught filming another team's practice several years ago)
    Dolphins (admitted stealing signals off a tape)
    Colts (Howard Mudd does it, according to Jimmy Johnson)

    In the past, we know Ron Jaworski and the Eagles did it, Jimmy Johnson and the Cowboys/Dolphins, Al Davis and the Raiders, and I'm sure a great many others.

    Fisher's claim makes him a fool and a liar.

    I agree that the silly triumphalist tone of the original thread title makes zero sense.

    All Fisher did was repeat what's being said league-wide. He's emphasizing that there are teams that do not use the video cameras, and that is the other side of the discussion.

    His point is that he believes only NE has done it (uh wrong), but even if there are 10 teams that do it, then 22 "honest" teams "playing within the rules" suffer from it.

    Enough about Fisher.

    My thing is, I just don't get this "end of the cheating debate" interpretation. He's actually trying to fuel the fire of the "cheating debate."

    So yeah, this is kind of another purposeless spygate thread. And Bigglesworth has always reminded me of Buttersworth, but that's beside the point, he's right about this.

    I used to really like Fisher, but lately he has turned into another media whore.. if you can't win the big game, blab what you want on ESPN.. more face time.
