    Wow. And to think, they didn't even sign Briggs. Just imagine what General Zod would have penalized them had they actually signed him ...

    Where's Easterbrook? What does Matt Walsh know about this?

    I look forward to every ESPN talking head spending the next 6 months talking about the 49ers as the Worst. Cheaters. Ever.

    I won't hold my breath waiting for that to happen.

    Commissioner Clouseau strikes again.

    Now, if someone could just explain to me how filming from the sidelines instead of the end zone or the stands is more detrimental to fair play than trying to steal an opponent's best players, I'd really appreciate that.

    CHEATERS!

    MIKE NOLANCHEAT!

    5-11*!

    Yeah, like you'll ever hear that...

    (By the way, if you happen to see this in a Mike Florio Sporting News column tonight, it's because I told him, and he thought it was funny.)

    This goes on every year. If Goodell is serious about this they will heave to open up a whole new office in New York to monitor it:

    Goodell is anti-Patriots.

    Tom Brady plays for the Patriots.

    The 49ers were the team Tom Brady rooted for as a kid.

    Coincidence? ;)

    swap of a 3rd? why not take away their 2nd and 3rd? since they did not make the playoffs?

    so then we can tamper and that is ALL we lose for it?

    They did after the Branch situation, but the Jets were cleared in January 2006 -- under Tagliabue, mind you.

    Meanwhile, the precedent that is set of rewarding the team who was tampered with WITHOUT EVEN LOSING THE PLAYER is terrible.

    Imagine what will happen when a team wins a tampering case and they actually lose the player. Swap seconds? Firsts?

    Just stupid.
