    NFL update: Pats videotaping procedures

    Looks like it's over. I've personally gained a lot of respect for Reiss during these last two weeks. He is one of the few that didn't try to milk this story, unlike the Blues traveler over at the Herald.

    Thank god...we can FINALLY get back to playing football, instead of talking about something that quite honestly didn't have any effect on gameday.

    I knew they didn't want that stuff to get more junk on us. It made no sense and is almost impossible to do. they just didn't want us to maintain any edge we may have gotten through the videotaping.

    Nice one on the defensive miking. The Jets are just slinging around any accusation they can but you do need some evidence. Boy, I hope someone nails them for something this year.

    Its nice to go through a few days without any mention of all of this. Now Karma needs to kick in and the NY Rats need to get busted for something. Then all of the focus on the Pats will just fade away.....

    Just wondering, were these only tapes in regards to the Jets game or for everything they have ever taped.

    THANK GOD.

    All those friggin' jackals gleefully reporting "this isn't over yet" can now shut up.

    Pretty sure destroyed tapes=OVER.

    And I love the dismissal of the miking charges.

    On with the NFL season.

    I hope Belly didn't lie and still has his private stash at home. Man, that would suck.

    Well, if that was the case, there isn't anything Goodell could do. If word got out that he did that, there would still be no proff and Goodell can't get a search warrent.

    At this point I don't care as long as it's over for us. If they keep going after us then they need to go after everyone.

    I don't care. I just want the story over.

    Seems like the commish feels the same way.

    You can be sure BB has duplicates away from Patriot headquarters. There is no way he would have given them up without duplicates. My guess is they are at his house.

    Re: NFL league office: All Patriots tapes have been destroyed!

    The only thing I wish is that the Commish issued a statement about the punishment, a statement of why it was so severe and a statement clatify so called 'cheating". There are many that say that the Lombardis are tarnsihed..I think if Goodell REALLY believes in the integrity of the league, he should say something about that..negating those claims. BUT..the only integrity he has is just past his nose. Sorry..while I am glad it is over, Goodell has done a poor job.

    Has Neanderthal Goodell never heard of the digital world? 'Tapes' per se are irrelevant when you can digitize and make infinite personal copies for home, work, whatever. Not, of course that the sainted Belichick would ever do that.

    Re: NFL league office: All Patriots tapes have been destroyed!

    BB probably kept some if not all of the tapes at his home. If they are in his house, Goodell wouldn't be a able to do a damned thing, even if he found out. No hard evidence, no penalties.

    And Honestly, Goodell probably doesn't care if he made duplicates. He realizes there is nothing he could do about it and he just wants this to be over.

    This isn't good enough. Heads still need to roll for the leaked tape.
