    If they had something damaging, they would release it now to get maximum vitriol at the Pats, as there's nothing else to talk about in sports. They got nothing, and that's why there's no big release. They'll bury it eventually or, more than likely IMO, they'll never say anything and hope everyone just forgets.

    If they had something damaging, Belichick would be suspended for sure.

    It’s only a few days away from the draft and if a suspension was coming there would be no way they’d allow Belichick to participate in the preparation for the draft for the Patriots. It would have been announced a while ago imo.

    I agree, he would never sit on League news. He would risk getting scooped by Schefty or Rapoport.

    Stuff like this makes you realize how effective the NFL propaganda machine has been over the years with Deflategate being their high point.

    Secretly release false and damaging information
    Allow/assist media to create a dastardly narrative
    Secretly place a gag order on team so no context/facts can be provided allowing the narrative to grow
    Hire investigators and so called experts with a bias towards guilt
    Ignore any exculpatory evidence
    Twist finding to pre-conceived verdict
    Hand down significant penalty thus bolstering initial claim of level of offense
    Avoid any context (NO ONE ELSE HAS EVER DONE THIS)
    Knowing that besides the fans of the team being implicated all others are actually happy about it the NFL knows there will be little to no backlash.

    Scary how similar Deflategate and bountygate were.
    Both penalties were excessive when nothing actually happened in either case.

    Still do not fully understand why the league does what it does but I have to assume it is pettiness of the losing owners. (boutygate was likely so they could pretend they cared about player safety)

    Why the site like Yourteam Cheats formed.

    ....unless it's exculpatory, in which case they air it at 2 AM.

    Hmm....

    Glazer really fumbled this one up.

    Had several NBA players not already gotten covid and this was reported weeks ago as him being the first pro athlete to get the virus, then sure it’s a huge story. But really? You spent a whole day hyping this up as your big news story, when the guy contracted it three weeks ago? And hundreds of thousands have now gotten this virus across the country?

    Seems very manipulative on his part using this as his big scoop.

    A logical league would have come out immediately with: "Patriots admitted that the teams production crew inappropriately filmed Bengals sideline which is against NFL rules. Since all signals are communicated via the helmet as they have been for several years there is obviously no competitive advantage to be gained. We understand that the team was creating content like all other teams do and that they had notified the Browns of their intentions. We will however be looking into this matter further to ensure ...................one week later team is fined $50,000 for failure to properly notify the Bengals. But no - they want there to be a perception of"cheating" and know that the majority of fans will immediately jump to worst case conclusion vs thinking it through logically.

    You don't even have to think about it that hard. If the Pats were trying to gain some kind of advantage over the Bengals, they did it in the dumbest way possible in front of employees the Bengals and Browns. And one of those two teams they already got permission to film.

    Belichick himself even said that the Pats follow the rules to the letter and go out of their way not to step out of line after Spygate where Bill tried to get cute with the rules rather than to call the league office for clarification.

    A league like that will also create a SOP for teams with their own documentary and video crew and rules around that. This league won’t though because Goodell.

    Yeah. A team or individual that cheats hides what they are doing. That doesn’t seem to be what happened here or with any other Patriots “scandal”.

    Obviously that is assuming the video guy really wasn’t scouting for the football ops. That is cheating and would be hard to accept as a fan of this team.

    A co-worker of mine who resides in a Denver suburb told me at 8pm every night most of her neighborhood goes outside and yells at the top of their lungs for 20-30 seconds. It started as a clapping and yelling for Drs, nurses, first responders but has morphed into bellowing and screeching out of frustration and anger, just a cry for help.

    There’s been some miscommunication about what’s going on up here in Denver. I live here, and people howl like wolves for about 2-3 minutes each night at exactly 8:00 p.m. It’s about showing appreciation for our medical community and essential workers. It’s also a fun way to unitedly express ourselves and maybe let off a little steam due to the cabin fever caused by this quarantine.

    It really is a nice thing and very heart-warming, certainly not “incredibly sad.”
