    polian and co. for changing the rules or how they are enforced...with 5 yard contact rule or the PI rule ....to suit his team especially. those are rules specifically aimed at the patriots and for the colts. how fair was that?
    so we have a game....but guess what...we cant win with those rules...what to do...ok lets change them!!!

    If Belichick wants to be allowed to aim a camera at opposing coaches, he needs to get on the competition committee and get the rule changed.
    Until then, you're only asking for trouble if you do this.

    Sucks, but Polian and Fisher are laughing their asses off right now as they convene to take a look at the tape headed their way.

    Apparently you have no idea what the word "cheater" means. I would suggest a dictionery.

    cheating in this case would be changing the rules to punish one team that wins and help one team that loses to that team, so that they have a btter chance of beating them.

    As much as I despise Polian and the Colts, I see no cheating there... just working the system.

    And regardless, just because you find a bigger cheater doesn't make you less of a cheater... just a thought ;)

    Polian and Shula long ago used the Rules Committee to enact rules to favor their teams. That is not cheating.

    And just BTW, the new patriots will appreciate the Ty Law rule.

    Every team in the NFL is trying to decipher the opponents play calling. The Jets were most certainly trying to steal our signs. But we got caught and I expect the Pats are going to get hammered down by the press and the league. I'm pretty sure they are going to make an example of us when the fines are handed down.

    Unfortunately, Bill Polian is going to be calling Goodell relentlessly to encourage him to hammer us hard.

    I am ashamed of the number of fans on this site who have found it necessary to post thread-after-thread about the non-issue of stealing signals.

    We just played on of the most dominant games in years, our team looks very powerful and we have a playoff type game this Sunday that has far reaching implications and you're all acting like Patriots turn-coats.

    Stop it, you're embaressing me and insulting everything the Patriots have done for us...

    AND IT'S MAKING ME SICK!:mad:

    LET'S ALL CUT THE CRAP HERE AND SUPPORT THE BEST COACH ANY TEAM COULD EVER HAVE! OTHERWISE WE A BUNCH OF IDIOTS!

    your spelling is also embaressing. patriot fans should be upset that there are asterisks next to their three super bowl wins now. you're in the same category as barry bonds... did rodney harrison play in those super bowls also? should that be a double asterisk? one for cheating and one for steroids? hmmm....

    You need to lighten up. Even if I thought this was a big deal, which I don't, it's apples and oranges. Getting the league to enforce a rule already in the books can not be considered cheating.
