Poor Rams

and what a coverup !
Belichick has been taping since 2000, Goodell tells Specter
By LAURIE KELLMAN, Associated Press Writer
February 13, 2008

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Bill Belichick has been illegally taping opponents' defensive signals since he became the New England Patriots' coach in 2000, according to Sen. Arlen Specter, who said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell told him that during a meeting Wednesday.

"There was confirmation that there has been taping since 2000, when Coach Belichick took over," Specter said.
..."I have nothing to hide," Goodell said.

Goodell also told Specter that that he doesn't regret destroying the Spygate tapes or the notes.

"I think it was the right thing to do," Goodell said.

Still, Specter wants to know why penalties were imposed on Belichick before the full extent of the wrongdoing was known and the tapes destroyed in a two-week span. Asked if he thinks there was a coverup, Specter demurred.
Walsh told The Associated Press last week during the Pro Bowl in Hawaii that he couldn't talk about allegations that he taped a walkthrough practice by the St. Louis Rams before the 2002 Super Bowl. New England, a two-touchdown underdog, won that game 20-17.

Goodell is afraid of imposing a real fine and sanction, the NFL needs to get tough with Belichick and the Pats. Of course the NFL has no sanctioning body like Formula One has. Its kind of ridiculous that a congressman has to point out to the commissioner of the NFL that its not right for Belichick to cheat.

It would be sweet to make the Patriots give up all of their draft picks for about ten years and make them ineligible for the playoffs for about 20 years. Fine them for a few tens of millions. Then throw them into a real division and see how bad they lose.

FUCKERS! I knew it!! I hate that cocksucker even more now than I did before. They BARELY won that game against the Rams, and it was the beginning of the undeserved end of Kurt Warner's career. Belichick can eat Hillary's dick.

Ban the sonofabitch for life! Pull a Pete Rose on the asshole!

While I would be happy for the Patriots to really have to pay for this misdeed (getting kicked out of the NFL might be appropriate), I would not say that the Rams are worse off without Warner.

^ Not now they aren't. It took Martz a little while to completely fuck over that organization, but in 2002, they were still the best team in football.
