    Mortensen: Goodell orders Patriots to turn over all tape

    On Sunday NFL countdown, Patriots to handover all videos and notes they have had since 2000 to the NFL...what does this mean???

    He says it's not over and the league will keep monitoring the Pats...

    I say it's garbage, he's just saving face. Either way, how is he going to enforce this mandate? Get a warrant? Goodell doesn't have the kind of power that he thinks he does.

    Goodell is an idiot. Put a lid on this. Everyone's talking about how their teams or other teams 'cheated'. It's out of control.

    Re: WTF.. It's Not Going Away..

    I'm afraid this now will go so much worse than we thought it ever could.

    All notes and tapes?

    Belichick and the secrecy that BB demands will be gone.

    All "notes"? This is beyond hideous.

    And we all know how Goodell likes to leak info.

    Notes????

    I don't know why Goodell wants to keep this alive. It should start to die down after tonight unless he keeps it alive.

    Re: WTF.. It's Not Going Away..

    The witch hunt is continuing. I think Mangini stealing a Patriots laptop when he knew he was gonna be Jets coach was more serious.

    This is utterly ridiculous...all a team has to do is hire 3 people who have photographic memory and sit them in the first row or just have them scribe all the plays and gestures.

    This is so way out of control.

    I'm convinced they are just trying to oust BB at this point.

    Re: As per mort

    I hope the Patriots file an injunction against Goodell and the NFL to prevent them for handing anything to them. They have no business asking for this when they are first time offenders. Goodell should realize who helped him become commissioner as well.

    Re: As per mort

    My thoughts exactly. Even if they still have them, what's to stop them from merely deleting/destroying them? Goodell is a commissioner of a sports league, not the President of the United States - he has no power to enforce beyond what teams agree to give him, at least in cases like this.

    Re: WTF.. It's Not Going Away..

    Doofus Goodell should be booed out of the building if he ever makes an appearance at Gillette. I consider him an enemy on par with Bill Polian. His need to make public disclosures, grandstanding about his "fairness", makes me believe all these paeans of praise from the mediots have gone to his head. Now he believes himself a "King". More of the inbred Hapsburg variety, I imagine. Bye, bye, CBA.

    IMHO, this is not going away until the league gets what it wants, BB to tell everyone, like when he is going to take a crap, get laid, etc, or until he is out as coach.

    Re: WTF.. It's Not Going Away..

    I was refraining from calling Goodell any names as I thought he was doing his job, but..

    What a freaking idiot. Why don't you ask all teams to hand over all of their documentation too?

    maybe BB's statement about 'interpretation' rubbed the commish the wrong way.But iam quite sure thats what BB told him when he talked to him in private.

    The tapes prove nothing.
    It's the idea of "notes" relating to this being handed over that changes everything.
