(Mods - please feel free to close/move this if you think it is not pertinent.) In that short statement by BB, I loved that brilliant inclusion of ' my interpretation of the rules', which I thought gave us excellent room to argue with the league about the reality of the situation (how others are doing it or how ridiculous the rule might be or what unwritten codes/rules are or whatever), and how the Pats have also been victim to it (Fins game for example). But, IMO, the apology to the team and owners made it look like BB did something wrong. If all this is nothing but malicious PR and wait-till-dust-settles story, what was the need to apologize? I fear that the apology gave instant ammunition to most of the media and the other fans to be convinced that we are indeed guilty of shady tactics. And now, we are facing a nightmare of situation where our image and reputation has been sullied and our achievements questioned even though we might not have done anything drastically different from other teams. Curious to know what others think. GO PATS!!
