    Pre-announcing hypothetical decisions is most injudicious
    ... for a quasi-judicial authority.

    Not to mention bad mojo.

    So just so I understand the commissioner:

    If one of us gets a low level job with the Jets, and then, on our own without authorization of the team, decide to sneak into another team's practice, make a video, and hand it over to Goodell, he'll severely punish the Jets?

    Sounds like a plan! Who's up for helping dock the Jets their 2009 1st round draft pick!

    That's quite the precedent Roger seems ready to set - we should make sure we use it to our advantage.

    I'm just wondering if we'll also need to secretly and illegally tape a conversation with the Jets GM and get fired, and then lie about our professional experience and background before he'll consider one of us a "credible" source of information like Walsh.

    That's not really a revelation, he said that way back when the Patriots were first punish for the whole thing. He's just repeating what he said back then.

    This is such total BS. He is already setting us up for a crackdown, despite the denials from the coach and the team. Why doesn't he keep his trap shut until all the evidence is presented.

    That's what I'm wondering. If he shut his mouth this wouldn't have become the cluster**** it has become in the first place. His New Sheriff in Town act is so old already.

    Independent arbitrator.

    Jetdell is a transparent catspaw for the Rats and their interests.

    I don't see how that reflects favorably on our franchise. Should we be treated differently solely b/c our owner is influential?

    Goodell better step carefully - I don't think Walsh has anything but we all know that Belichick knows enough after 32 years to make Spygate look like a walk in the part. He could break the NFL wide open and if Goodell f*cks him I have little doubt he'll do just that. IMO he took one for the league in September, he's not going to go down alone for a misdemeanor.

    I don't think its fair that a team that used to employ the commissioner or a team that has its GM on the competition committee gets prefertial treatment.

    Exactly. This was reported in September when the punishment was first handed out, it was reported in February when the Walsh thing kicked off, and now they are reporting it like it is totally new information again.

    Oh yeah, I'm a troll because I don't want to use Kraft's influence to keep us out of trouble.

    So Goodell once again said the exact same thing that he said back in September and has said 500,000 times since?

    This certainly deserves it own story on every sports web site and a new thread.

    Talk about nothing to see here.

    I do want to use it because even if we taped the walkthrough (which I don't think we did), I think we've been overpunished already given that "spying" on practices, etc, has be done and gone unpunished through the history of football.

    Agreed

    He said these exact same words during half time of the Chargers game and now it's news, we should be laughing at the media's constant attempt at making old news a breaking story not worrying about Goodell having an agenda, which i doubt. Unless you can call cleaning up a PR mess he contributed too as having an agenda !

    This is just the beginning of the sh!t storm that the media is going to inundate football fans with just in time for Draft Weekend. I hope this is all put to bed very soon.

    That disappoints me. We can point the finger all we want but in the end if our coach breaks the rules then he should be penalized. I don't like to see our coach penalized, but some responsibility has to be taken for infractions.

    I too thought similarly and was convinced that every other team has similar stuff going on and that BB took the high road - i.e. 'took one for the league' in Sept. - by not spilling the beans in public even though it has done irreparable damage to his name.

    But, if that is the indeed the case, why would Mr. Kraft and BB offer a sincere apology to the other team owners recently? Aren't we the ones who got unfairly punished and are still taking a big hit to our name and reputation? Curious to know what others think. Apologies if this has been brought up and discussed in other threads earlier.

    I dunno, but I think being fined more than enough to pay off the average American homeowner's mortgage is penalty enough for aggravated videotaping.

    As I stated, I agree but I believe the penalty is already over harsh.

    The Broncos and 49ers lost something like a 3rd round pick for salary cap cheating which puts additional players on the team. All we have done so far is a legal activity (stealing signs) in an illegal way. A #1 pick ? As I've said before it's like being charged with Vehicular Homocide for speeding.

    Remember, though--the owners gave them a standing ovation at the end. What do you make of that fact?

    Just remember that almost everybody thought the Pats got off EASY, maybe they really did.
