    In terms of public figures I would genuinely enjoy meeting in an alley, Curran in pretty high up there but I was surprised by how he closed. It's amazing what controversy is coming out of simple gamesmanship. Every competitive team out there from college to the pros has a videography department. Some are more cloak and daggers than others, but those that are pose another layer of distraction to their opponent and therefore more effective. Every ounce of human capital you can take away from an opponent is a victory. I'm just amazed that there is such outrage at this as it is commonplace in every high level form of competition.

    It's pretty much because a lot of people on the internet didn't play a sport at any level. Hell, I remember coaches trying to decipher another team's signals when I was playing football at the pee-wee level. This really isn't anything new, and it's been highlighted as such by Jimmy Johnson.

    Anyway, **** Josh McDaniels for throwing his mentor under the bus to save his own ass. What a truly low piece of garbage he is.

    Everybody in the NFL was doing this. The Patriots got whacked and whacked hard because they ignored a league memo that reminded all teams to stop the practice.
    Regarding McDaniel, does ANYONE actually buy the "I threw my hands up to cover my eyes and threw my rouge coach out of my office when he tried to show me his rogue taping that he initiated on his own"??? :rofl:
    Joshy is not only a disloyal rat but he's a liar.

    Reiss also please report for duty

    iMO the Pats have been told by the league not to comment which makes matters worse We need perspective like Curran is providing tonight.

    This is a Broncos issue aka the implosion of McDouche. No way Scar jr acted alone but this matter is now closed by the NFL.

    The Patriots got whacked because of how they did it and where they did it. If they had, for instance, wrote down the signals, the down and distance, the play, and where the play went in a notebook and detailed it, that would be legal and would have been just as effective as video tape. And no, nobody buys that from McDaniels. My opinion of him went down the toilet today. He is, by definition, a rat. A rat fleeing a sinking ship will do anything to save it's own ass. McDaniels, the rat fleeing the sinking ship in Denver due in part to his terrible decisions, decided to throw his mentor (the guy that gave him a detailed print out on how to be a head coach and taught McDaniels everything he knows) under the bus to take some of the pressure off of himself.

    Josh McDaniels has jumped the shark. He's sinking fast in Denver and is willing to throw anything or one overboard to save his skinny little ass. What a Pu$$y

    So that's where Scars kids got their video passions from...

    All kidding aside Dante Scar is a very nice man. The Delta flight crew that does the Patriots charters love him.

    We had to change our signals in the little league tournament when I was 13 because one of our guys told one of his friends on another team all of them. :lol2:

    Surprising, I thought JMcD really thought a lot of BB and went out of his way to tell everyone that.

    There's an old saying that a person's true character shows during adversity, not success - I guess this is just another example of that.

    I gave McDouche 3 years. He's ahead of schedule.

    Yet somehow, like Mangini, he'll get a head coaching gig elsewhere. :confused:

    I have always defended McDaniels, but he definitely crossed a line with his comments to his staff. He definitely Manginied this situation by acting like a rat on a sinking ship and selling out whoever he can to escape.

    It is pretty bad when even Tony Dungy chastizes McDaniels for talking out of school about how Belichick runs his organization.

    The sad thing, McDaniels probably exaggerated what he was saying to make himself look better but he really sold out the guy who made him what he is just like Mangini did.

    I am not quite ready to throw McD under the bus yet.

    All this is based primarily on Glazer's report. That report is, to me, ambiguous. Probably deliberately ambiguous to provide maximum publicity.

    Many people seem to be taking the report to imply the Pats taped practices, since the "difference" between Pats and Broncos was portrayed as planned vs spontaneous. And that is what has sparked the outrage. (If the outrage was due to the statement the Pats taped signals in an organized ongoing manner... then noone was paying attention in 2007 when all that was disclosed.)

    But it was not in McD's interests to point out that taping another team's presumably-secret practice is a MUCH worse offense than taping the same signals tens of thousands of people could see in plain sight. That is why he supposedly said jobs were on the line.

    McDaniels stupidly threw his staff under the bus in front of the owner recently. That made him some enemies who made this public and controlled the message.

    So until there is a better indication exactly what McDaniels did and did not did not say I will withhold final judgement.

    but wait!!!!....Joker The Unpredictable is about to predict!!!!

    I see SPYGATE III...THE CYBORG CAMERA QB at which time it will be revealed that Matt Cassel actually had small iris implants that allowed him to see surrepticiously taped camera shots right on the surface of his eyeballs that allowed the Patriots to cheat their way to an 11-5 record when Brady went down....I KNEW something was fishy about that...

    A report of what went on in a staff meeting taken as gospel? What's the motivation of this supposed informant - long-term career success in the NFL after whoever it is leaves Denver? McDaniels didn't report this incident to the NFL, the reason for his penalty, and told Peter King (aired at halftime) directly in response to Glazer's report that he wasn't in the loop on video practices with the Pats so really couldn't make the statement he is now accused of making.
