    From King's column today.
    "Three years ago, when the Patriots exterminated the rest of the league, they did so under the shadow of Spygate, when they were sanctioned by commissioner Roger Goodell after the first game of the season for secretly videotaping teams' defensive signals to try to gain an advantage."

    If memory serves the Patriots weren't SECRETLY videotaping at all. They were out in the open for all to see.
    Come on Pepe King. This is why people hate the media.

    Peter King wants back in

    Apparently, he's finally over himself and has stepped off his Spygate high horse. Someone wants to thaw the freezeout in Foxboro.

    Re: Peter King wants back in

    i didnt really care but now i realize its getting ridiculous

    why all the spygate mentions all of a sudden? like wtf?

    i read MMQB every week but after this column i REALLY want someone to let this guy know: the 1st round pick and fine were ridiculous

    ask him this question, if the patriots were taping the signals, but instead of having their guy on the sideline they had them in the stands, is it a violition?

    answer? it isn't

    King should know better

    Re: Peter King wants back in

    I read the whole thing, i wouldn't let him back in. He keeps repeating that the pats were Long Time Cheaters even though it was common place for ALL the teams to tape up until 07. (even Goody Never used the word cheat) While he writes that the team has a better record after SG he does all he can to trash them first. Hes a Fat F****** Clown

    Misrepresenting what actually happened with SpyGate thus continuing the public's lack of factual understanding of what really went on is not going to open those Gillette doors for Pepe.
    Can you be SECRETLY videotaping when standing out in the open on the sidelines for all to see??

    Re: Peter King wants back in

    More proof that the whole thing was overblown.

    He has this too, about his chart showing that Pats have gotten BETTER since the Spygate stuff came out:

    "New England's gone from winning two-thirds of its games with the benefit of taping illegally, to winning three-quarters of its games and scoring six points more per game without taping -- and with so many new pieces on offense."

    Here's my theory: The whole incident scared off every other team that was videotaping and/or doing who knows what as well; a level playing field will always benefit Belichick.

    In the words of Bill Belichick, Peter King "go f$%k yourself."

    Re: Peter King wants back in

    BTW King does his weekly french kissing session with Dale and Holley on Friday. I say we email D & H on this matter come Friday and ask them to have King clarify what "secretly" means and how that wording misrepresents that REALLY went on with SpyGate. Don't waste your time trying to email King directly. King is LYING about the facts with SpyGate and he needs to be publicly called out for it. The media's blatant and intentional misrepresenting of the facts with SpyGate has been outrageous......and sadly it continues.

    Re: Peter King wants back in

    Back in '07, pretty much every former coach came out and said, "yeah, I used to do that." And there was this recent column after the Broncos' fiasco:
    'Cheating' in the NFL goes beyond the camera - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

    "Let’s start with playbooks. You don’t think those find their way into the hands of opposing players? I saw plenty of offensive playbooks during game weeks in my career. Printed, stapled and handed out to the defense. Magically they appeared in our meeting rooms, complete with route schemes, exotic plays and top concepts."

    This whole "Evil Patriots in a Land of Innocents" is such crap.

    Screw him.
    He chooses now to put Spygate in the title of his column and discusses it at length. He is working off the assumption that the Pats cheated and used that info to their advantage. Talk about dredging up the past. And, only now does he say, they got no advantage from it. Screw him again.
    And all this on a day when the Jets coach deliberately tries to injure an opposing player and that barely merits a mention in the column, and King says, suspend him for a game. Wow, Peter, way to bring down the hammer.

    Re: Peter King wants back in

    At first I was upset that he even MENTIONED spygate, and in the title of the column no less.

    But when you actually read it, the column isn't so bad. He at least makes the argument, supported by the data, that it had no effect upon winning football games. Sure you can quibble about how he presents the facts and the fact that he thinks the punishment was appropriate, but the bottom line and his takehome message is that attributing any past success to videotaping is silly, given what we have seen since it was stopped.

    Personally I'd prefer that he not even bring it up, but at least he shatters a common false assertion (that after spygate everything went downhill). Hopefully we can in less than two months shatter the other mantra of the haters: no NE Lombardi trophies since spygate.

    Do that, and there should be no reason for anyone, even the haters, to bring it up again, ever.

    Thank you, Peter.

    Now spend the rest of your life going to every rival fans' messageboards to clean up the mess you have perpetrated.

    Re: Peter King wants back in

    So let me get this straight ...

    He's saying that although the pats were dirty secret filming cheaters, we were clearly very bad at it so it led us to no real advantage.

    But the tripping of a player in the sidelines merits barely a wrist slap.

    So the conclusion to draw is, placing a camera in public view but in the wrong place that fails to help them in the slightest is massive cheating. But coaches tripping players with an intent to injure, that's not cheating and is barely worthy of a slap on the wrist.

    nice.
