    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?

    No, but we should be treated fairly

    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.

    No Jersey Selected

    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.
