bingethinker: Let's conveniently forget that the Bengals are not a team the Patriots would need extra help to beat. If they were recording the Ravens or Kansas City, it would be more believable. Maybe that's why it's only a third round pick this time, not a first.


Its not like pathological cheaters think about whether they need to cheat ahead of time. They just cant stop themselves no matter the tiny benefit or large cost of getting caught

Make it hurt. Get caught, you have to give the pick to the team you recorded.

$1.1 million?  Ha, Kraft spends that much at strip mall rub-n-tugs every week.

natural316: If you're outraged over this, get a life


Outraged? I'm not even peeved. Water gets you wet, the patriots think the rules don't apply to them. Why get outraged about natural characteristics of the world we live in?

Champion of the Sun: Didn't they sign Tebow PBUH last time there was a scandal in NE only to drop him when the scandal blew over?  I hope they at least paid Newton off for this pr move.  Otherwise, in this climate? Yeesh.


No.  Check the timing.  And don't forget to shave.

The Pats also got caught spying on the terrible Jets when the Pats were undefeated.
It just shows how dirty they are.

bingethinker: believable


Hey, if you don't want to believe something that definitely happened, cost the team a draft pick, and was not contested, well, then, that's on you. Reality does not require your belief.

Devo: If college players don't play, will they be eligible for the draft?


I believe the rules are three years removed from high school.

So if the college season doesn't happen then any player three years removed from high school is eligible for the NFL draft.

This is the one they were talking about the middle of last season right? What took so long to come up with a resolution?

I think the signing of Cam is just a distraction from yet another scandal. Remember, Robert Kraft is a Zionist.

I now believe the SARS-CoV-2 virus was engineered... not by the Chinese, no.

By Bill farking Belichick. So as to make sure this issue was buried as the least of our concerns.

UncleDirtNap: $1.1 million?  Ha, Kraft spends that much at strip mall rub-n-tugs every week.


Let's just do some math here, because I believe I read that he parts with $100 every rubby.  That works out to 11,000 tugs per week, or 1,571 per day - 65 per hour - or just over 1 per minute, with no sleep. I knew he had problems, but at what point does gratification become punishment, and when are they the same thing?  This is a sick, sick man.  Thank you for pointing it out.

Nah. That felt more like a "kick the tires" situation and the Patriots exploring whether they could get creative in some way.

It became apparent Tebow would shine the light of god on Belichick's black heart and that would be a direct violation of the coach's deal with the devil. In the end they couldn't chance it.
