After reading the threads about Don Shula's ridiculous assertion that the Patriots record should have an * if they go undefeated I decided it might be a good idea to document the indiscretions of other NFL teams. Patriots: Spy/Cameragate Dolphins: Tampering in order to hire Mr. Shula http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don_Shula Jets: Tampering to hire Parcells (I believe the commissioner stepped in and required the jets to provide compensation before tampering was declared) http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=980CE4D9123DF932A35751C0A961958260&sec=&spon=&pagewanted=print Steelers: Member of the medical staff purchasing $160,000 in HGH. http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/07060/765933-66.stm 49ers: Salary Cap violations http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9B0DE6DC103EF933A1575BC0A9669C8B63&sec=&spon=&pagewanted=print Broncos: Salary cap violations. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A28969-2004Sep17.html Dallas: Taped opposing teams signals. http://www.bleacherreport.com/articles/2500-NFL-Philadelphia_Eagles-New_England_Patriots-Did_The_Rams_Panthers_and_Eagles_Steal_Patriot_Signals_to_keep_their_Super_Bowl_Losses_within_three_Points_-290907 Packers: Paul Horning suspended for gambling. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/11244760/ Lions Alex Karras suspended for gambling. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/11244760/ These are just a few off the top of my head (and I have to go to work). I guess my goal with this post is to point out to everyone the hypocrisy of the "Pats are evil" mantra or "their accomplishments are tainted" mantra of many (not all) members of the media and many (not all) opposing fans. I am not a football historian and this list is not exhaustive. Please add to the list with further posts.
