    They said it will be up to the Competition committee to determine the punishment if any.

    Well, you can be sure that one person on the comp committee is petitioning for permanent removal of first round picks.

    The competition Committee cant lbring any punishment - per Tomase, so apparently Goodell is out to publicly spank the Patriots like this.

    Next year the committee will enact a rul that no team can have club employees use videocameras on either sideline.

    Don't think its over. People will be talking about it all week...even Madden & Michaels will drone on about it during the game which I will have muted...rather listening to Gil and Gino.

    Obviously we need to send a few Cheerleaders and Giselle to Goodell's office and relieve his mind a little bit.

    God no first day picks we built up for this draft and this is gonna be critical with Stallworth and Moss and Washington essentially on one year deals and possibly losing Samuel.

    Who is saying it's going to be a few picks. I've heard all this speculation all day about picks but I've not seen it coming from anywhere credible.

    Re: ESPN NEWS just said Goodell...

    And here I thought the NFl would be down with it because they let it go last year when the Dolphins cheated against the Patriots.

    Yes, I used the word cheated. Apparently, the NFL now defines it as such. I just wish the NFL would make up their minds and stop acting like hypocrites. Last year it was ok to use videotape to steal signals. This year it's not.

    So the Broncos only lose a 3rd round pick for cheating the cap but we're going to lose multiple picks for this?

    Does anyone have Goodell's statement? Did he mention the draft picks in there, or is that part just speculation by the ESPN talking heads?

    We'll probably lose our #1 from S.F. and our #3 from Oakland.

    If your not a Patriot fan don't join the discussion what you should be worrying about is how your gonna react when Warren crushes Tomlinson.
    Rivers is introduced to Thomas and Moss grows rampant through. your sieve of a secondary

    Last year the Patriots were also warned to stop whatever it was they were doing. And they didn't, and they got caught.

    I am beyond pissed about this, especially if it is costing multiple draft picks. What a stupid, arrogant move by this organization.

    NFLN is now saying a forfeit and suspension of significnt time for BB is possible based upon league sources since this is the second time he has been found using these methods.

    WOW! Stay tuned to channel 212 on direct TV.

    Re: ESPN NEWS just said Goodell...

    Did they also say the competition committee would dish out the punishment because that's not good if that's the case---earlier today Tomase said that they competition comittee could not do this that it would ultimately be up to Goodell.
