    Do you think they care what a bunch of Patriots fans typing on a computer think of what they will do,if anything with NE? - I hardly think so unless you slip each member of the senate a nice little (but not little) 'gift' ;)

    You would be writing as a concerned citizen not a Pats fan. Concerned as to why this resolved NFL matter would get time with the Senator when this country has so many other much more pressing issues at this time.

    I live in PA and near where specter was just a local political guy early in his career and jumped up the ladder to senator,Believe me he has not changed and is the same ol' (insert expletive) you see now.

    Specter is a HUMONGOUS Philadelphia Eagles fanatic who firmly believes his Eagles were robbed in SB 38 with cheating and will do ANYTHING to take the glory from NE away or in any of the Pats Championship SB years and will not sleep until he destroys or at least tries his hardest to destroy the integrity of the Patriots organization.

    When things get political it gets scary and is no issue just to shrug off like some fans in here who just think things will go away quietly and quickly - UH-NO-
    This may be serious stuff in the next few months whatever that may be,Its going to be a LONG offseason for us fans of this team.

    I think you're missing the point, you ******* toddler. It doesn't matter what kind of court that would happen in, since this isn't going to go before any court. Crimes go to court, and this wasn't a crime. Come back when you've taken sixth grade social studies; maybe you'll have something to offer to the conversation then.

    Thinking of your near-future departure from this forum makes me happy, Columbo.

    The issue most Pats fans have with this issue is that they broke a rule (not a law) and have no idea why that idiot Specter needs/wants to get involved. The Pats videotaped teams in broad daylight (even if the Rams walkthrough is true). Wouldn't you think they would be much more stealth in their operation if they were truly trying to get one over on the competition? If they get additional punishment for this issue then the league will need to go back and readdress the Steelers of the 70's (steriods) the 49ers and Broncos (cap violations), the Cowboys of the 90's (Jimmy Johnson admitted to taping signals), the George Halas Bears (he apparently sent blurry game films to opponents on purpose for a competitive advantage) the George Allen Skins and any other team not "playing fairly" or accused of violations (Dolphins - tampering with Shula) From what I am aware, Goodell looked at the tapes, decided that they were a rule violation and issued a fine and penalty. Should every NFL infraction be investigated by Congress? Should Eddie Debartalo have gone to jail because the 49ers were accused of circumventing the cap? Should all of their Superbowls contain an asterick? The venom being sent at the Pats and Belichick is insane and disproportional to the alleged infraction. Yes, we openly filmed signals on the sideline. Yes we were caught. We then won the next 17 games without this "valuable tool" Seems to me that the significance of filming was at best miniscule but that is not how it gets portrayed.

    It's the equivilant of jaywalking. You can cross the street...just not there. Just move down the road 100' and it's OK.

    I can't believe this is taking up the tax payer paid time of U.S. politicians. Seriously...I just can't believe it.

    And no one is "entitled" to know what was on those tapes outside of the NFL. It's a private organization. You may want to know....but you're not "entitled".

    Sorry...guess I'm a tad cranky this morning :bricks:

    Ignoring some of your points because they are crazy........If what you say is true and this is about what the Patriots did or didn't do where is the outcry to find out what other NFL teams have done. One thing about the Steriod scandel is that they are going after everyone Picthers, sluggers, average ball players.....What about guys like Jimmy Johnson who have come out and said his teams have done it, what about the accusation the Jets did it to us two seasons ago.

    Patriot fans should want a thorough investigation into spygate. That is the only way fans across the nation will stop calling the team cheaters. That is unless they are proven to be cheaters.

    there already was one. I'm not sure why that's so difficult to understand.

    what's difficult for me to understand is why anyone would be okay with their senator spending his time, effort, and taxpayer money investigating an NFL rules infraction. I guess you don't think senators have anything more important to do? Like, maybe their actual job?

    The worst thing is that some people think the NFL destroyed the tapes without even looking at them. The NFL knows what was in the tapes and notes and found nothing that they feel affected any games.

    I think too many people, including Specter, feel that they are entitled to view these tapes and notes and make their own assumptions.

    i think most pats fans would welcome a complete investigation into videotaping defensive signals in the nfl. i doubt the nfl or the fans of other teams would welcome such an investigation.

    can you see that blowhard specter trying to break down game tape. he's already botched the warren report. he would totally eff this up. keep him as far away from the nfl as possible.

    At this point, I want a complete investigation of the whole deal. I want every team that did any "spying" or "cheating" identified and outed.

    I want the Patriots to be vindicated already - I am sick and tired of this witch hunt.

    If we are the only ones that spied and broke a rule and if we did use the information to gain an advantage and cheat our way to Super bowl wins, then take the damn rings away from us or shut up.

    I want Spector to admit his looking into this has nothing to do with his prize QB choking in a Superbowl and all to do with his COmcast Vs NFL Network affiliation nd special interest (as if that would happen).

    I want BB & Kraft to spill their guts and blow this whole thing up already....let them tell all they know about other teams incidents and let's see these other teams get on the defensive already and squirm.

    Yup...it's really getting tiring.

    There must be something we cn do about it - as fans??

    How can the Patriot organization continue to take all of the shots and why?

    The more they stay silent the more uncomfortable I am feeling.
