    Hypothetically, if Walsh is legit, and he has a recorded conversation and video to back up his claims (a distinct possibility), what is the aftermath?

    I would suspect BB may be suspended for 1-2 years.

    It wouldn't have been real good anyway but now that Belichick has issued such a strong denial, if a tape exists and it's shown that Belichick knew about it then he would be suspended, if for no other reason than flat out lying about it. There would come a time, though, where I think Belichick would retire and write a book. He'll take some shots over Spygate - he already has - but there will come a time where he won't go down alone.

    Where did this BS of a recorded conversation come from?

    Pioli said that is why they fired Matt Walsh.

    The OP is speculating that if Matt Walsh was fired for recording conversations it is possible he recorded a conversation of BB telling him to Tape. Not to crazy except it most likely never happened.

    The first word of the thread was "hypothetically".

    FFS people, could I propose that there just be one dedicated Spygate thread on this board? I'm sick and tired of every idiot who wants to rehash the same tired opinion feeling the need to start yet another pointless thread for it.

    Okay. He doesn't need to be an idiot for starting the thread, and you don't need to be an azzwipe.

    I second the proposal however. There's a great deal going on in the offseason, and there always is. Spygate is part of it, but each new "what if" speculation really isn't a new topic, whether it's a media "what if" or a poster's "what if."

    Come on now. How are these really separate topics?

    aftermath.? You don't want to know but i'm going to tell you a few things if NFL and Patriots don't shut this down as soon as they can.

    1- Patriots is going to pay a lot of money for lawsuit AND its reputation will be ruined.
    2-BB will be suspensed.
    3-02 SB ring will be taken back.
    4-Congressional investigation into NFL.

    NFL and Patriots will be finished at this point.

    I think if the shyt hits the fan in the form of pro Golf trainer Matt Walsh, say he produces some evidence....

    a) its stolen, and if he stole property there could be more counter suits

    b) its footage he never filmed

    c) its footage he filmed that the pats were not aware of



    Either way there is all sorts of legal posturing being made, and the anal retentive control freaks the Patriots are would not allow Bellichick to hit the Media with all this denial stuff, and go after Walsh offensively like Pioli did, unless they had every imaginable avenue covered, including, but not limited to "material evidence" and congressional inquiries.


    Looks like a bait and switch if you ask me.


    Lets see what Walsh does, and then it should get interesting.
    Bottom line I think if Bill Belichick is pulled before a congressional hearing, he blows the whistle on everyone....everyone.


    Goodell's fines were a knee jerk reaction, he did not want this can of worms to be opened, cause when all is said and done, there will be smear campaigns across the NFL.... cause everyone does the same stuff.


    Who is te most staunch supporters of mic'ed MLB helmets?

    Owners/Coaches meetings, year after year, Kraft & Bellichick.

    Bellichick was just making sure we were on fair playing ground, they are gonna steal our signals, we are gonna steal theirs. I honestly dont think the taping was for anything more than to make the opponant think that they are trying to decode, amke them use dummy signal callers, and one live one, and if they faced the Pats twice, amke sure the whole signal calling system was completely reworked from the 1st meeting.

    Thats a lot of additional work that can detract from business at hand.

    what worries me is that walsh isnt stopping from pushing this issue so he is going to produce something. regardless of what the pats take is , goodell will bow down to public pressure and media and issue further punishments. i will have to give up watching the game if BB is asked to leave :mad:

    If BB lied to the commish and the public and these tapes show some blatant attempts to cheat, I think we would have seen the last of Belichick in the NFL.
