re: NFL investigating Patriots for videotaping Bengals play calls

Rams Super Bowl thing was in 2001. Spy gate wasn’t until 2007.

quote:

IN AUGUST 2000, before a Patriots preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jimmy Dee, the head of New England's video department, approached one of his charges, Matt Walsh, with a strange assignment: He wanted Walsh to film the Bucs' offensive and defensive signals, the arm waving and hand folding that team coaches use to communicate plays and formations to the men on the field. Walsh was 24 years old, a lifelong New Englander and Patriots fan. He was one of the few employees Belichick retained that season, his first as the team's coach. The practice of decoding signals was universal in football -- a single stolen signal can change a game -- with advance scouts jotting down notes, then matching the signal to the play. The Patriots created a novel spying system that made the decoding more dependable.


quote:

Years later, Walsh recalled to Senate investigators that Adams told old stories from the Browns about giving a video staffer an NFL Films shirt and assigning him to film the opponents' sideline huddles and grease boards from behind the bench. The shared view of Belichick and Adams, according to many who've worked with them, is this: The league is lazy and incompetent, so why not push every boundary?


It went back way before 2001.

Im talking about the bogus Rams walk thru story and the tapes in the deflate gate that we’re from the 2007 season, not 2001

Also the sideline filming was legal before 2006 so that’s pretty irrelevant

"Spying" wasn't illegal until Goodell sent his memo out in 07. Cowher admitted to doing with the Steelers and JJ admitted to doing it with the Cowboys. So the Pats were "cheating" for a whopping one regular season game.

How was it debunked?

The fine art of debunking is to simply say something is debunked.

Just keep saying it.

I’ve backed up what I stated. He’s the one who ran away when I showed him that the story was retracted
