    I ca honestly say that I wouldn’t be surprised if they kept Bill out of the loop and used these films for the gurus in the booth.

    This way when Bill is speaking it sounds genuine...

    I’m probably fooling myself but a part of me thinks Kraft is the mastermind of all this cheating.

    Nah, Bill's in on it. Likely Kraft is, too, but certainly Bill is. Ernie Adams was his old buddy that he brought with him to the Pats to mastermind the cheating operation ... Adams takes all the signal info that they get off the videos, and breaks it down so that they can use it against their opponent on game day.

    Only way they will be stopped from cheating in this way is if the fans raise a big enough outcry to force the league to really crack down on it. As long as they don't, and the benefits of the cheating outweigh the possible penalties of getting caught, you can be sure Belicheat & Co. will keep doing it.

    The real question is, how much of the *'s success is the result of their underhanded tactics? If they're STILL illegally spying after nearly two decades, if they're spying even on teams like the hapless Bengals, it tells me that they must feel this cheating is necessary to be able to win.

    If Pete Rose got banned from baseball for gambling on games, why should Belicheat not get kicked out of football if it's proven he is behind this?

    This all could have been handled and eliminated years and years ago but someone chose not to pursue it.

    Like Brady said years ago, it's easy to ace the test when you know the answers ahead of time.

    Or when the Steelers lost in the AFCCG "They were calling out our plays at the LOS."

    I truly believe that if you were caught cheating once, then caught cheating again ten years later, you did not just cheat twice. You have been cheating all along. The Pats have decided that the ongoing benefits of cheating outweighs the punishment received every ten years or so.

    Can you blame them?
    Most fans don't remember, care or think it's was a big advantage.

    . "But since [the events of 2007] happened, I'd say we've tried to keep a good distance behind the line and not maybe take it as far as we might have in the past. But it's never really fundamentally changed there.
    Yep “nothing fundamentally changed there”
    Translation “we’re still cheating like we always have “

    The Patriots are going to get hit with RICO charges one of these days.

    I totally agree with this.
    From the 2010-2019 season, (A 9 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks.
    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the 70ís...

    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008.
