    This gives those 5 teams an unfair advantage. Cough up those draft picks, second rounders! Or at least they have to pass until the end of the second round.

    Only a second rounder? I would think this should be a one a 500 thousand dollar fine to the team and 250 to the coach.

    If the Patriots were 1 of the 5 teams this would be a top story on ESPN, but since we are not, so no one has brought it up... Shocking

    You two fools do not know how it works. No Belichick, no media. Goodell is media driven and E!spN decides the penalty.

    This started as a joke, but I think I'm serious. Well not about calling you fools.

    Five teams will be fined for violating the "dead" period, Commissioner Roger Goodell said. Although the New England Patriots are not one of the five teams, they will be penalized a first round pick "just to keep things fair."
