    2 week suspension for Coach Bill, loss of 2nd round and 5th round draft pick in the 2008 draft. EDIT: I forgot to include the fine, since the fine is the last thing on my mind... but I will throw in a $200,000 fine alongside the above.

    Although, the fact that we have 2 1st rounders scares me... the temptation is certainly there for Goodell to snatch one of those.

    My guess: loss of their 3rd and 6th round picks, $100K fine. Possibly being put on double-secret probation for a few years where if they get caught doing it again, they loose a 1st round pick.

    Can't predict until we know what's on the tape. At this moment, all we know is that there was a video camera on the field which is against the rules.

    We don't know if it was on, and what it was filming.

    as per Dale's sources on WEEI the tape is 'dead on' and goodell is furious. Going by that i would say 1 game suspension + 3rd and 5th round picks.I hope iam wrong.

    2 picks (2nd rounder)........... $1.5M fine

    Suspension - Only if Goodell is out of his mind (but he sorta is and it could happen).

    Belichick's statement has me hopeful that nothing will come of this. He can't come out and say "misinterpretation" and set himself up for further humiliation.

    Belichick has to be suspended for a longer period of time than Wade Wilson. I have no idea how a competitive advantage is accomplished by Wilson being able to get an erection after taking HGH. It has to be more than 5 games for Belichick.

    I hope it's not a 1st round pick or suspension. Maybe a 3rd round pick and fine.

    2 Comp Picks awarded to the Patriots by the NFL because they made the rules so vague that they were "misinterpreted".:p

    The only thing that might mitigate the punishment a little is Bob

    Kraft works very hard on behalf of the NFL. Severe punishment

    might dampen his efforts for the league.

    Bill will have to take on Danny Baugher's dad on PPV, with the proceeds going to the installation of defensive helmet communications.

    Since Denver lost a 3rd for cheating the cap I hope that's it on draft picks.

    The forfeit idea being tosses around is ridiculous, but at the same time scares me a little just because it's out there. That could be the difference between homefield through out the playoff and being a 3 seed and not getting a week off. With some of the older players I think that's a huge hit.

    BB gone for a game wouldn't surprise me. After he has the game plan set having DP/JM coach on the sidelines for a game isn't the worst thing in the world if it's a one game suspension especially if it's against a weaker team.

    This is not any more serious than the Broncos salary cap violation that lost them a third round pick.

    That said, given the league's non-reaction to Miami's spying last year, balanced by Goodell's badass reputation and pressure from Polian on the competition committee, I'd guess:

    a 3rd and a 5th plus a fine.

    How does a forfeit work with the sportsbooks? I bet is creates a sh*tstorm.

    Polian has the defending champs now - he doesn't really have as much ground to stand on as far as keeping things competitively balanced...though he will try.
