    Some think tampering case fueled Crabtree deal | ProFootballTalk.com

    Interesting if true. I forgot the Jets were recently busted for playing around with the injury report and that's ONLY because Brett Favre had a big mouth.

    If they got busted again, the league would be forced to make an example of the Jets and the NFL obviously doesn't want that, now does it? I wouldn't be surprised of Goodell tries to cover this up.

    If this involved the Patriots, where do you think ESPN would be with it?

    Asking for BB's head and for Goodell to force the end of the Patriots...it would be on there 24/7 and would over take the rest of their "programing"

    Kraft and the Patriots should be all over this with Goodell. But they won't, is my guess. While I don't know what goes on behind closed doors, it's really frustrating that all of these episodes (Crabtree, Oakland coach breaking the assistant's jaw) just seem to fade away and we took a major screwing for taping flippin' hand siganls.

    Just read this response by a dude on PFT forum,found this very interesting....

    This was as predictable as the morning sunrise. The Jets continue to scrap the bottom of the barrel for their daily bread. The reason the league looks the other way is because they are a New York team in the shadow of the Giants, with enormous numbers of expensive seat licenses to sell in the new stadium they rent from the Giants. Everything they do is to sell those seat licenses. In this economy, the NFL does not want a team like that going under. So, they continue to look the other way. The Jets are wreckless though. It's like they have gotten way too ****y on what they can get away with. They also tampered with Brandon Marshall of the Broncos. They finally filled their need taking advantage of Braylon Edwards recent skirmish with the law.

    Recall that they were the team that was filming the Patriots illegally. They had more cameras out than the league allows. The Pats asked them to stop. Then, when they played in NY, they blocked the Patriots from having a legitimate camera in the end zone for practice film purposes (like all teams do). The Patriots brought the camera to the sideline instead (a rule violation) and then got in trouble, but it was the Jets being the J-E-T-S, doing the actual CHEATING in the first place that caused it all.

    How about that hit by Sanchez against the Saints? He throws a pick six, can't catch the guy, see's the Saint players coming down the field, who graciously chose to NOT crush him, and what does he do? He throws himself at their knees, for no known reason other than to injure.

    I call this move "THE DIRTY SANCHEZ."

    The play was over. They gave him grace by not crushing his a@@. He takes advantage and tried to injure them "just because." What does he get? A paltry $5000 fine from the league. A pittance compared to his monster salary. Rex Ryan probably will pay it for him. Ryan is the same guy that issued bounties for injuring players.

    Remember, the JETS are the same organization that tampered with Curtis Martin, and also with Bill Parcells DURING the Super Bowl preparations in 96.

    The JETS are, and always have been the dung heap of the NFL and Home of The L-O-S-E-R-S!!!

    I agree with the "dude on the PFT Forum", in that it's all about THE major city media darling NY Jets and PSL sales. Were Comissioner Clouseau to seriously investigate the Jets tampering charge and find them guilty, a big ass penalty would be due, one exceeding the loss of a single #1 pick. Such devastation would cause prospective PSL buyers to lose heart in the team's future and put a crimp in PSL sales. Ain't gonna be allowed to happen.

    Since the very start of all that Spygate crap I maintained it was an orchestrated hit job by Goodell.When will people finally realize this man has MAJOR conflicts of interest sitting in judgement of the Patriots?

    THIS is the BEGINNING of his NFL work history..

    • 1982: Joined league in 1982 as an intern in the NFL's offices in New York.

    • 1983: Worked for the New York Jets in public relations and administration offices.


    worked in administration for the New York Jets ....later on sits in judgement,deliberately trying to harm the New England Patriots franchise.

    He needs to be removed and prosecuted by the law.

    I've not been the ESPN basher some have been... but I remember that before my less-than-legal dish went down, some on that network were speculating BB might be suspended : or even LOSE HIS JOB. Something about Kraft, honor, blah, blah, blah...

    ESPN should actually be all over this (actually, the shouldn't - but I mean if they are going to go crazy over NE's situation...). Or, at the very least, one of the "analysts" - especially a former player - should have the balls to say that people were too critical of NE when other teams, see : the late 90's Denver teams were screwing with the cap and the modern day Jets can't keep their nose clean.

    Haha, it probably doesn't because I don't know what you mean here. :) All I was getting at is that because of the hatred for the Jets, your vision is clouded.

    All I have ever heard from my friends (who aren't Pats fans) is that we (ie the Patriot franchise) got off easy with the draft pick and fines. They think it should have been more. And that is the general sentiment I got in reading on the Internets at the time of Spygate.

    With that logic, the Jets then should get the same treatment we got. Huge fine to team and coach, and loss of 1st round pick.

    Just like you left the "not" out of you "could care less," don't say "we" in a Pats forum. It makes it sound like you are a Pats fan. Got off easy with the draft pick for video-taping signals from the wrong location? A first round pick for filming from the sideline instead of the endzone like the Jets were doing is too light? Only a Jets fan's thinking would be that distorted.

    Man up, even it you are a Jets fan. Say who you are. No one likes a sneak.

    What few seem to remember is that Zolak and Andy (Porky) Gresh on WSKO in Providence were also speculating that BB might be fired shortly after Spygate. In fact, Zolak seemed to support it.

    I see it more like the 9ers now have Crabtree signed and do not need to pursue there false tampering charges.


    What possible gain would the Jets receive by tampering with Crab?

    The same thing that any team might have: quite simply, by preventing the Niners from signing Crabtree, they raise the possibility of "forcing" a trade next year, or possibly allowing him to re-enter the draft.

    The key thing is that, if we believe Deion Sanders, at least two teams are guilty of tampering (how, exactly, would Michael Crabtree "know" that two teams were willing to pay double what SF was willing to pay?).

    ===================================================

    If the Jets wanted to force a trade, Crab would first have to sign with the 9ers, and at that point they would not need to trade him.

    If Crab sat all year he would then automaticly be eligible to renenter the draft, 9ers would be out there #1 pick, and the Jets would have to hope that Crab fell to them in the draft.

    I just don't get it.

    So PFT is a legitimate news source now that it's smearing the Jets instead of the Pats? Is that how this works?

    The Niners' rights to sign Crabtree would have expired around Week 10.

    Their rights to Crabtree, though, would not expire until the 2010 Draft; after free agency began, the Niners would have been able to trade him at that point and recoup something.

    so an ex Jet employee, beholden to Hess for his big break early in his career, sits in judgement of the Jets chief rival and roadblock in the division INSTEAD of recusing himself and turning the decision making over to an independent arbitrator? is that how this works???

    ...yeah, it's just not even worth responding to some people. Clearly, you don't get the point, but that's fine. I didn't expect that you would. From here on out I'm just going to put folks like you on ignore- rational discussion is a dead end.

    oh..I get it...your point was meant to be rational and promote discussion..it wasn't a snotty putdown of the OP's point.Got it.Not even worth a response about possible Goodell collusion. No wonder you always tear away at every move and everything the Patriots do.

    And let's not forget how that sideline tape, the allegedly only copy available, the one that, at the time of it's release was in the sole possession of the Commish, somehow got to Fox Sports? Does anyone else here forget that Goodell's wife works for Fox? :rolleyes:

    Did you read my post? Because I clearly referenced my non-Pats friends as the ones saying the Patriots got off easy.
