I know its another thread on this but the globe article and BB's comments really bought some sort of finality which i thought of expressing and knowing your opinions. Obviously as a pats fan its a biased opinion. firstly , its not 'spygate' as BB point out.It was done publicly in everyone's view.Sadly its another media buzzword which has taken off and no one wants to correct it. secondly, again from BB's comments - How much work does it take in a week to prepare for an opponent.? There is game tapes to break down. Develop a game plan , worry about injuries, practice , have other assignments . In between all that how much does a tape taken by a videographer really affect the gameplan . ? Even if that tape is studied and deciphered lets say. How is it used in the game ? Does some guy in the sideline watch the signals, radio it to JMcd and he changes the play call to brady ? Not to mention sometimes defensive signals are sent after the offense shows its alignments ?What about making adjustments to what the other team is doing ? When does all this happen if all we are doing is watch the other guy's signal ? This is professional football. Unfortunately not a single person in the media wants to address this and it makes me sad .Especially people like Dr Z,Peter King and ex players who claim to have watched and played football all their life. Unfortnately no one can question their columns or writings so they say what they want. Could the pats have avoided the fiasco by checking with the league about the interpretation or stopping it after the 2006 memo? Absolutely. But BB like Mike shanahan does ,pushed the gray area in the rule. Right when this videogate broke out lot of people wondered how BB could be so stupid .The fact that he had an argument ready with the rulebook in hand , he knew there was a rule which was exploited.Says something about his memory and meticulous study of the rulebook. To sum it up, videogate looks like a whole lot of nothing. It became big because it was BB and it was against a new york team and really screwed us up week in week out hearing about. I wonder how the players took this for 19 weeks and still performed when as fans we got tired and sick and worried of hearing the same things.
