    New England Patriots fined $1.1 million, lose draft pick in film crew fallout

    The NFL fined the New England Patriots $1.1 million and took away a third-round pick in the 2021 draft among the punishments for their television crew's filming the field and sideline during a Dec. 8 game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns.

    In addition, the Patriots' television production crews will not be allowed to shoot any games during the 2020 season, and senior club officials will undergo required training on league operation and game policies.

    NFL spokesperson Michael Signora confirmed the punishments Sunday night after ESPN broke the news.

    The NFL also banned David Mondillo, who was suspended by the Patriots at the time of the NFL investigation, from NFL facilities until further notice. Before the league's discipline, Mondillo was terminated by the Patriots.

    The Patriots admitted that their production crew inappropriately filmed the field and sideline. The crew was credentialed by the Browns to shoot video for a Patriots web series called "Do Your Job," but the Patriots did not inform the Bengals or the NFL, which the Patriots called an "unintended oversight."

    "The sole purpose of the filming was to provide an illustration of an advance scout at work on the road," a Patriots statement said at the time. "There was no intention of using footage for any other purpose."

    The Patriots also said the production crew, which included independent contractors who shot the video, is not part of New England's football operation.

    A Patriots spokesperson confirmed the team won't contest the penalties.

    They honestly need to drop the hammer on the Pats.

    They've clearly demonstrated that they don't care at all about intermediate punishments like this.

    The cheating is going to get a lot worse now that they don’t have Brady.

    But hey, Billicheat is a genius right?

    Smart move.Well worth it.
    This will be yesterday’s news and nobody will care.
    Only a couple butt hurt fans will act like this kept the steelers from winning more.
    Update:
    In the last decade, 25% of the league has won a super bowl(the Steelers aren't one of them) and now 50% have as many or more playoff wins as the Steelers.

    The pats are not the reason we wasted a decade and more. I’d love to say it was but that would be a lie.
    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 10 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 playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches

    so you don't think having Tom Brady in our conference hurt us?

    and then add in the fact that the Cheatriots cheated.

    not surprised you feel that way, spoken like the true Steelers fan and Tomlin/Rooney hater that you are.

    I for one can not wait for Tom Brady's book where he goes into detail about the shameless cheating that goes on in New England. Picking out the title might be tricky. I'd go with deflated balls.

    Kraft is going to have to stoke that 1.1 million check.
    Realistic rebuild mock draft 3-29-2021.Plan to spend $110,094,402 in cap space in 2022 and have 4 comp picks + what we have in the 2022 draft. We will be back hopefully with better coaching.

    1) RB Najee Harris - A 3 down back, makes em; miss, runs then over, Gets outside, blocks like a top FB
    2 ) LT Dillon Radunz
    3 ) CB Paulson Adebo -
    4a ) C Drake Jackson-
    4b ) TE Tommy Temble
    6) G / C Cole Van Lanen -
    7a ) S Darmr Hamln -
    7b ) ILB Erroll Thompson

    The reality is that the indictment against the pats cheating is so long term, that it is on goodell's shoulders at this point. They did nothing, so it was allowed. The problem is one of integrity on the highest of levels in the nfl.
