    We were deprived of our on-field "Spygate" revenge by a flukey Sb loss, dependant on a series of miraculous and inexplicable bad bounces in the final 2 minutes. Our enemies have carried this nonsense far beyond the white lines, however, and thus have upped the ante so far that even a Sb win might not have evened the score to this fan's satisfaction.

    The enemies of this team I divide into 4 chief groups.

    1) NFL franchises envious of the Pats success
    2) Parasitic NFL media (ESPN, local media backstabbers such as f@t@$$ Tomase and his $hi#-stained rag the Herald)
    3) The hapless doofus commissioner whose kneejerk punishment condemned the Pats to endless recrimination
    4) Arlen Specter, representing Comcast. Mr. Kraft is the head of the NFL TV council, and Specter is bringing pressure to bear on him specifically.

    My plan for revenge would damage all of these entities. The only cost would be a couple hundred million dollars of the Krafts' money. Considering they purchased the team at 170 million and it is now worth over 1.2 billion, IMO those few hundred million dollars earmarked for revenge would be money well spent and wise investment for future happiness and satisfaction. The net damage to other NFL franchises, the parasitic NFL media, the doofus commish and die hard, aging and infirm Eagle fan Specter would be incalculable.

    The revenge is for the Krafts to force the melt down of the current NFL CBA, taking the hardest of hard lines in the ongoing negotiations, and becoming lead figures in the hard line camp. The media has portrayed the Pats, unjustly to this point, as villains, and it is high time the Krafts rose to the challenge and assumed the actual mantle of @$$HOLES in CHIEF. I personally would gladly sacrifice two full years of football to ruin the current commissioner, damage the businesses of 31 other NFL franchises to the tune of billions of dollars, remove the livelihoods and earning power of the many NFL players who have denounced the Pats in the media, wreck the livelihoods of dozens of parasitic media losers, and ensure that Specter never sees an Eagle title in his brief remaining lifetime. A side benefit would be to give BB time to recharge his batteries after several grueling, arduous seasons. Granted, we may lose several years of Brady's prime, but since he has announced his desire to play until he's 40 that seems like a small price to pay.

    The sports media whore establishment, which relies almost entirely on the NFL to earn a living, would be tremendously damaged, journalists would be fired, columnists laid off. Small market teams like the Colts, among others, would be severely damaged by a year + layoff from football and the removal of the salary cap. The failure on the labor front would be a strong weapon to use against the Doofus commish, damaging his rep beyond repair and possibly forcing his resignation. The TV networks, and the cable companies whose ratings are driven by football programming, would suffer greatly.

    The Krafts would no doubt suffer economically as well... but they hold sway over a large market, covering multiple states, and an international brand. They own their own stadium. They would come out of a work stoppage, without a salary cap, even in a new league, in prime position to compete and flourish.

    I hope Jonathan Kraft and his days of aspiring to be a consensus builder and peacemaker are over; I hope he no longer seeks acceptance from an old guard of vipers so eager to tear down his franchise. He should join with Jerry Jones, Daniel Snyder, Bowlen et. al. to overturn the current order, and if necessary reshape the NFL in a new image that benefits his franchise and burns the rest.

    The enemies of the Patriots deserve to reap the whirlwind they have sown. This has been a insidious attack to destroy the legacies and reputations of hundreds of honest people, going far beyond the white lines to accomplish that aim. A Bloodless, legal vengeance is in our grasp, and I hope the Krafts take the opportunity to see it to its satisfying though financially costly conclusion.

    Wow in a way I concur, but on the other hand I love football way too much to go 2 years with out it.
    It would never happen but if it did boy that would be crazy.

    Your only enemy is the coach who decided to tape illegally in the first place. He probably didn't even need to, but he did it... he got caught... and now the fans have to pay the price.

    No, our only enemy is the hypocrisy of this league. He took his punishment, paid the price without a word about how common it truly was and unfair it surely was, yet here we are questioning SBs of past when other SB championship coaches admitted to doing the same thing. If an 18-1 season isn't enough to prove a point to how much this whole illegally taping signals helps the team win, then quite obviously there are hidden agendas and damaged egos which continue this cycle of hypocrisy.

    If it goes before congress, more teams and more coaches will get the same treatment. Being the first one to get caught, they had to make an example out of BB, fair or not. Hypocrisy may come later as more coaches get the Spector treatment. Until then, BB is the face of this scandal.

    But then you're wasting two years of Brady's prime.

    Also, I don't see how doing it just for revenge is worth it...

    I like it, Pony. As long as the Patriots win the Super Bowl this coming year..then we can make shirt like "New Enlgand Patriots: Final Super Bowl Champions".

    The best revenge is living well. I don't see a lot of well living for the franchise for a substantial time if this is implemented.

    The only change I'd like to see from what the team did this season is a gradual shift away from the defensive 'bend but don't break' game plan. I understand its value vis a vis this group of defensive players; but the team is in control of who will be a Patriot going forward and I wanna see more defenders that fit the 'destroy the QB right now!' game plan.

    Grow up Dropkick! Take your sorry excuse fan of a football team and go run & hide somewhere. You can wish & hope with all your wimpy might, but nothing is going to change on the Patriots. Belichik and the Patriots WILL be back next year and there's not a damn thing you can do to stop it!:D

    How about we just go out and win games? Wouldn't that be a better way to say F You to the league, instead of going two years without football?

    "Living well is the best revenge" - George Herbert

    Honestly, just go out and keep playing and keep winning. We went 18-1 this year with absolutely no taping, and stand to be near the top of the league for at least the next several years. If you asked me to trade my good football team for a team that "doesn't cheat" I would laugh in your face.

    Seriously...if I lost 2 years of football because of something as insane as this...then...then I'd really be a hater...I mean...football is my love. Take that away from me, and I might have to become a martyr against those I'd blame for taking away my sport...

    Actually, the only thing to stop it, is to beat them on the field, where it matters and take it to them. That's why I watch the game. That's why I love the game. All the bs is gone once that ball is kicked off, and the athletes decide on the field, who will win, who will lose.

    I nominate you. Enjoy your prison term for assault with a deadly weapon (yes, there is precedent for your shoe being considered a deadly weapon) on an elected official. :D
