NFL Network reports Goodell is requesting tapes dating back to 2000, this would of course be the start of the dynasty. I saw this on NFL Network so I don't have a URL check NFL.com. In my opinion. The reason for this is not to continue reaming the Patriots. Its to vindicate the Patriots dynasty and protect the integrity of the NFL. I could of course be wrong, but I would expect a statement from Goodell saying the videotape was an isolated incident and was not a factor in the Patriots success dating back to 2000. That would put this all to rest finally. Anything other than this would be bad for the NFL.
