Bill Belichick = Emmett Fitz-Hume


The NFL comes down hard on the Pats for doing their best Emmitt Fitz-Hume and Austin Millbarge impression. Is it enough? Probably not. But the real punishment is being dished out by the fans/media right now who have put the Pats organization as Barry Bonds. Their feats should probably include an asterisk next to them. Besides, the visual of Belichick and Weis pulling their eye patch out, copying test questions and reading notes out of a fake arm cast is just too funny not to think about.

Has Boston now officially become the most loathsome sports town in the country? Is there any other city whose teams we would like to see collectively fall on their asses?

Hey Stupid,

It is amazing how poor readers still like to write. If you were to educate yourself, you'd know that the NFL permits video taping (filming, polaroids, use of binoculars) by the teams to glean information about each other. Read all about it, it's in the rule book. There are restrictions as to where you can be when you do the recording, and a Patriots employee was in a non-authorized location on Sunday. That's the entire issue here: an employee's location. Every team studies every other team every week. Did you really not know this?

You'd think Coach Bill would have more important things to do than call you stupid, what with the Chargers coming to town.

Several things on that last comment:

1)The photos & videos that teams already do is of the action on the football field, not of the coaching signals.

2)If the photographer's physical location were the only offense the Pats are guilty of, $750,000 in fines and a 1st round pick is a pretty steep penalty for a guy standing in the wrong spot. I'm sure the league concluded they Patriots were doing more than just taking pretty pictures.

3) Teams were specifically warned about not doing this. Patriots decided the rules didn't apply to them. What else is there for people to "educate" themselves on about this?

4) You're a Patriots fan then, huh?

Bingo!!

I didn't know Rodney Harrison was a Chuckie Hacks fan. Then again, he does have plenty of time to surf the net...
