Maybe the less-knowledgeable among us (including most of these newly-empowered trolls) should look in here before they open the hole in their face. 1) The patriots were warned not to use video during a game, and they did it anyway. They deserve an appropriate punishment. 2) Stealing signals isn't against the rules. The Pats aren't in trouble for "cheating." They violated a league rule against having a camera on the sidelines and filming the other team. If a player makes a horse collar tackle, he gets flagged for 15 yards. However, if the tackler grabs a leg before making the same horse collar tackle, he's fine. We're talking "method" vs. "result" here. In the case of the video, the method is against the rules, whereas the result (stealing signals) is not. Let's keep some perspective on that. 3) The tape was confiscated in the first quarter. Whatever advantage some people think the Pats would have gained at halftime is rendered moot by this oft-unmentioned point. 4) The Commish's office has said nothing official. 5) We have no idea what's actually on the tape. Feel free to add your own, so long as they are facts. No conjecture, please.
