    Bluetooth device unpaired for one week. No extra Splenda for Bisciotti at next owner’s meeting. Harbaugh personally fined $5.

    That’s what I mean too. Kraft better not tolerate the league letting this slide if they’re going to punish the Pats for something the football ops didn’t do.

    Why? He “dropped the charges” against the Texans for tampering. Goodell knows Kraft is the desperate, low self-esteem girl who will always be there for a 3 AM booty call no matter atrocious his behavior is. Kraft seems to love their relationship.

    That's been the case since 2007. The punishment terms for the overblown sideline taping incident were a first round pick if the Patriots made the playoffs and a second round pick if they missed the postseason. The Patriots would have been much better off if the NFL followed the NCAA's approach of protecting their marquee teams/programs while hammering schools like Southeast Montana Tech.

    An unrelated thing I meant to mention about this story: People are under no obligation to do this and it doesn't excuse the Kraft Sports videographer, but no one in that press box in Cleveland said anything while the guy was setting up the camera and started filming? No one said said "Hey, you can't do that in here"? Maybe they did and the cameraman said that he had permission, but I haven't seen anything to that effect. Like I said, the other people in that press box weren't required to say anything, but if the no filming rule is apparently so well known and so important that someone would have spoken up.

    A fascinating juxtaposition with Tomase:

    Linsanity, A Botched Headline And An ESPN Editor's Journey To The Priesthood

    What happened, the actions and intent of the individual, the reaction, how he was treated by his employer and fellow local media

    One man endured, suffered, grew, persevered and today thrives, contributing to people and his community.

    The other is basically rewarded for doing unquantifiable damage to innocent people as well as fueling malevolent prejudice and propaganda, with zero accountability, acknowledgment or apology let alone redemption.

    BSPN never fired or even disciplined anybody for their countless false reporting acts regarding the Patriots. If anything the individuals involved were promoted.

    Local Boston media? Remember, only a "small faction" of Patriots fans were against destroying our logo and uniforms.

    small faction=all diehard fans of the team for 32 years, including a sold out home stadium making as much noise as they ever did in any game in choosing our established logo.

    In addition to all the millions across the nation who have nothing but contempt, hatred, ignorance and disdain for the Patriots, local people who have no problem with our uniform destruction include:

    - Those who never knew or cared anything about Boston, New England or the Patriots before

    - Those who were born in 1993

    - Those who hate sports

    - Those who always hated the Patriots, joining the media in paying attention exclusively to losses and the terrible actions and decisions by the owner, who even today compares very favorably to most others in the NFL

    Lmao at the NFL taking this long to finish this scam of an investigation. This should've taken less than a week to resolve.

    I think they were saving the punishment for maximum effect, like before the AFC Championship Game or Super Bowl if the Patriots made it that far. Probably was going to be fines and a loss of draft pick because the big bad Patriots are repeat offenders of breaking the rules regardless of how minor the infractions are. Now that the Pats are out, I don't know what the punishment will be or when it will be announced. Hopefully they just announce a small fine and be done with it,

    Ravens losing tonight unfortunately will increase the punishment for the Patriots accidentally filming Cincy’s sidelines.

    Tin foil hats abound in this thread.. with a unhealthy dose of bashing Mr. Kraft....

    Whatever happens to the Pats is BS.. this is something that should have been handled informally away from the media...

    If you read the Deflategate documents you should be wearing a tin foil hat. I’ll refer you to Kraft’s own mea culpa, which is unforgivable to many:

    Robert Kraft apologizes for accepting team Deflategate penalty: 'I was wrong'

    My thought is that Goodell at at that time thought he finally had the nefarious BB, so Kraft took responsibility in an effort to defer it from his coach, but when all that failed Goodell went after the next best thing.. #12. His thought processes seemed to be if he took responsibility it would satiate Goodell, as we all know it didn't...

    To blame Kraft for that is folly, he read the tea leaves wrong.. and as much as there is continual hand wringing and pearl clutching about all of that significant time has passed, and probably a lesson learned for the Kraft family in the context of the Goodell regime..

    Not sure why it is so "unforgiveable".. in 5 years everyone has learned a lot from that brouhaha.. do not trust Goodell and his very arbitrary disciplinary processes when it comes to the NEP.

    While other teams get their “transgressions” rebukes within hours, NE lives in perpetual limbo of “what’s the next punishment”.

    As stated by others, jealousy is the true culprit.

    Ravens $1000 for the Bluetooth thing and a pat on the head saying don’t do it again or no dessert for them.

    Shocked that this video seems to show multiple angles of BOTH teams' sidelines.

    I don’t think there’s a huge appetite to hit the Patriots hard this time. Probably mostly because of the perception that this is the end of the dynasty and also most people understand how ridiculous Deflategate was.

    Still expecting something way over the top and a lot of hee hawing from the Patriot haters.

    If the sideline taping went back to Belichick the Pats would be facing the same thing and Bill would be suspended. Thankfully it didn’t.
