Think about this possibility rationally! I'm as big a fan of this team as any of you. I had to take an extra Cymbalta today as I was feeling VERY down about Goodell's newest actions. This thing is now completely blown out of proportion and snowballing badly. Alot of it, BB has brought upon himself. All those traits that made him unique and beloved by us are biting him in the ass. The arrogance, the bad relationship with the media, the heavy handed tactics he uses when dealing and speaking to our competition. He's not a guy who's going to change his stripes even in this situation. I can completely imagine BB telling Goodell that he interpreted the rules in this fashion and he did nothing wrong as the rules apparantly require reclarification. If this is what happened, Goodell would rightfully be pissed because 31 other teams understand the rules completely. This is why Goodell is taking these further actions. NOT because he's a former Jet employee or succumbing to media/league pressures. I would like to think in my hope of hopes that this will be a confiscation measure just to assure the Pats won't use what they have against future opponents. But truthfully, the reputation of the team that Kraft has rebuilt since the Sullivan era is not damaged and I am 100% sure that this is KILLING him. In Kraft's mind, the only way to salvage and repair his franchises reputation may be to have BB resign/fired and ask Goodell behind the scenes to somehow prevent Belichick from taking another coaching job for a couple of years or 3. This is not going to blow over soon. Even if we continue our winning ways.
