    That's not stealing signals.

    Yeah, stop right there. Unless the guy was operating a video camera when he heard the playcall then he isn't going to be subject to investigation.

    That's not anything illegal (if you're NOT trying to be tongue in cheek). For example, if a team huddles up too close to the line of scrimmage, a defender can listen in and get the play then align the defense accordingly. Something like that actually happened in the Auburn/LSU game earlier this year.

    This is also what Charles Woodson did on the infamous Tuck Rule play. Eric Allen, now a TV analyst but then a Raiders CB, claimed they heard the play call at the Pats' sideline.

    this isn't stealing signals I used to try to listen to plays all the time in highschool, its just taking advantage of the other teams mistake of not concealing their play call

    I actually am being tongue-in-cheek...thought it would be worth a chuckle or two, but everyone seems to have taken this very seriously.
