    With all we have heard about Walsh....he doesn't make for much of a star witness.

    A suit would assume Walsh was Tomasse's source which I imagine the herald and tomasse would say is not the case.

    Not only should the Patriots initiate a suit against the Boston Herald but so should the NFL. Not only have the Pats been defamed by the article written by Tomasse but so has the reputation of the NFL.

    Two suits should be filed, one by the Patriots and the other by the NFL.

    But dont hold your breath that Goodell will do so.

    Filing a lawsuit would guarrantee that Spygate will live on and therefore filing a lawsuit would be a dumb thing to do and goes agianst Beleick's mantra of "we have already moved on."

    I agree 100%. The only pressure left for answers will come from the fans. The Jets did the same thing but got off scott free.

    Did you read the Patriots' press release?

    It was all about the Herald article.

    I would have been inclined to agree with you.

    And then I read the press release.

    Eh, I say wait a year or so until this whole thing blows over they lay a fat lawsuit on the Herald under the radar. You obviously cannot do it now due to all the media attention but when this blows over, I'd love to see the Herald and Tomase out of business.

    The Patriots have become the poster child for "PR Nightmare."
    Lawsuits like something against the Herald take years to form and execute. The court of public opinion has already hung BB and the Pats so all I want to do is go win some football games.
    Patriots.com should just stop putting links to the Herald.

    Boston is too small of a corporate community. Robert Kraft is not suing Patrick Purcell any time soon. He would put every corporate executive in the charity circuit in the awkward position of choosing sides, and that's not something the Kraft family would ever want to do. The Herald is still stinging from the Judge Murphy libel case, and I don't see the Patriots looking to pile on and put the Herald into bankruptcy. It would hurt the Patriots if there were only one viable major daily newspaper

    I'm guessing the Patriots hope that they'll get more bang out of the ***** cat reporting that John Tomase will be doing for the next year or two. Here's a game for you all on this board for the 2008 season: Count the Boston Globe scoops.

    I agree. That press release was kind of odd in that it only 100% addressed the damaging Herald article. Almost as if the Patriots organization is building a book of evidence ...

    I don't think they will do anything soon, as others have mentioned, but I also don't think they are going to let the situation completely disappear.
