It's because Belichick didn't mind if the Pats got caught...as he has a hidden reason for doing it...or even he wanted to be caught...why? Maybe he just wants to get into the other teams' heads...there is no way that he who is so careful in anything he does would be so obvious with the videoing. Up 'till now from what I have seen of him (from afar), anything he does has been done for a reason. He doesn't leave anything to chance. I want to say he is a man beyond reproach...but I more think he is a man who believes that...if you use underhanded methods...well OK 2 can play at this game. Does that make it right...or within the rules? No...but that is how the game is played. If I am and off lineman and I don't hold, grab a hold of the def lineman...no matter how good I am...I won't last in the NFL.
