But, the fact remains that many people have come out and said that this was a practice that has been going on for years in the NFL. the Pats got caught and they were punished for being caught. now people are chomping at the bit to take away everything from them....Stats, Super Bowls etc...My point is....There were a lot more teams doing it prior to this year. If this was the "warning" year and the Pats were caught and punished...the rest of it is inconsequential in my mind. If they are going to go back any further then they better bring every stinkin team into it as well. And those people saying they were also doing it ala Jimmy Johnson need to be held accountable too. Lets not hang this on one team and one team only. thats all I am saying! make EVERYONE accountable! Don't scapegoat one team if everyone was doing it.
Only hold the loser cheats that did it, that either have proof, like the lame patriots, or the ones who admit it, like Jimmy Johnson. I am not suprised that the Cowboys would be involved in cheating, not at all.
This isn't about people trying to get signals, that's just what the pathetic patriots would like it to be about. This is about defying the league, and keeping up doing something that was explicityly forbidden. Arrogant jerk teams like the Cowpukes and Patsies think they're better than the rest of the league, and i'm amazed at all their apologists. You'd think we'd want a level playing field, instead of making excuses for cheaters.
So if they dig deeper....they find out all teams involved and our beloved Vikings are found out...then what?
Any team that cheated in the way Bill did, after teams were told of the new severity and the league's crackdown on it, should have a 1st round pick and a big fine. Just like the patriots.
Any coach that is given a one time chance to come clean, and still lies about it, should be banned for one year, minimum.
