LEAGUE MIGHT INVESTIGATE LEAK OF TAPE TO FOX (from profootballjetssuckup.com Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reports that the NFL might investigate the manner in which the tape confiscated on September 9 from Pats employee Matt Estrella was released to Jay Glazer of FOX. Two unnamed sources leaked to Cole that the leak to Glazer might be explored by the league office. "It should not have happened and we are very disappointed about it," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told Cole regarding the leak of the tape. "But it does not impact what we are doing." Cole also reports that Commissioner Roger Goodell was "exceptionally angry" about the leak. "This is the kind of thing where [Patriots owner Robert] Kraft looks at us and says, 'All you guys do is favor the Jets,'" the source told Cole. "This kind of stuff puts us in a bad position." It also creates a perception problem for Goodell, given that his wife is FOX News Channel anchor Jane Skinner. More than a few PFT readers have speculated that the league office intentionally leaked the tape to Mrs. Goodell's employer. But as some Internet hack wrote in his Week Two Ten-Pack for SportingNews.com, the tape didn't come from the league office: "everal copies of the tape were made because several people outside of the league office -- such as members of the Competition Committee -- needed to see it. Once the thing exited the exclusive possession of the league office and got into the hands of folks at multiple teams, it became much harder to keep the tape under wraps." So if there's an investigation, the NFL needs to look not only at folks in the league office who had access to the tape, but also at anyone with any team that got the thing (such as, for example, Pats nemesis Bill Polian, the president and G.M. of the Colts). We also think that the league should look upstream on this one. It's presumed that the camera and tape were immediately but into a box that was hermetically (thanks, Tiki) sealed and sent to Park Avenue. But what if someone in the Meadowlands made a copy of the thing before it was bagged and tagged? Regardless of how it turns out, it makes for an interesting subplot to one of the most compelling NFL stories in years.
