Why does everyone say Denver is a better team than the Patriots?


Recommended Posts

Yup. A new commisioner from the Jets organization letting the league know a new Sheriff was in town. The penalty doesn't prove the Patriots were cheating when the story has been proven to be false. It only proves we were over penalized.

youre really stretching walsh gave the pats lots of tapes there was a false report he had a tape from the sb he didnt. that one little misprint doesnt negate all of this walsh gave them

 

  • One tape from the Miami Dolphins game on September 24, 2000
  • Two tapes, one offensive signals and one defensive signals, from the Dolphins game on October 7, 2001
  • One tape from the Buffalo Bills game on November 11, 2001
  • One tape from the Cleveland Browns game on December 9, 2001
  • Two tapes from the January 27, 2002, AFC Championship Game against the Pittsburgh Steelers
  • One tape, from a "third camera", from the San Diego Chargers game on September 29, 2002

Jimmy Johnson won 2 Superbowls and admitted he did this as well, and Bill Cowher, another Superbowl winner, claims that EVERYONE did. Why only attacking the Patriot Superbowls?

because there fans come here with a holier than thou attitude and dousche up the forum

"We consider the tapes of our coaching staff during our games against the
to be a non-issue.  In our opinion, they had no impact on the results of those games."

-Pittsburgh Steelers Chairman, Dan Rooney.

 

On Feb. 2, 2008, the Boston Herald reported that a member of the New England Patriots' video staff taped the St. Louis
' walk through on the day before Super Bowl XXXVI.  While the Boston Herald based its Feb. 2, 2008 report on sources it believed to be credible, we now know that this report was false, and that no tape of the walkthrough ever existed.

 

 

I'd like to start out with a quote from former Dallas Cowboys coach and NFL on Fox analyst, Jimmy Johnson, after footage from the actual tape was aired on Fox NFL Sunday.

 

"This is exactly how I was told to do it 18 years ago by a
scout.  I tried it, but I didn't think it helped us. 
was wrong because he videotaped signals after a memo was sent out to all teams saying not to do it.  But what irritates me is hearing some reactions from players and coaches. 

These players don't know what their coaches are doing, and some of the coaches have selective amnesia because I know for a fact there were various teams doing this.  That's why the memo was sent to everybody.  That doesn't make Belichick right, but a lot of teams are doing this". 

 

That quote says a lot about the videotaping, especially where Johnson says, "I tried it, but I didn't think it helped us."  People don't seem to understand that this was common practice amongst all teams, not just the Patriots.

 

 

No video recording devices of any kind are permitted to be in use in the coaches' booth, on the field, or in the locker room during the game.  All video shooting locations must be enclosed on all sides with a roof overhead.  Any use by any club at any time, from the start to the finish of any game in which such club is a participant, of any communications or information-gathering equipment, other than Polaroid-type cameras or field telephones, shall be prohibited, including without limitation videotape machines, telephone tapping, or bugging devices, or any other form of electronic devices that might aid a team during the playing of a game (ESPN.com and boston.com).

 

 

He wouldn't let the Patriots off the hook for a major violation.  What Goodell found was "routine," but against the new rules nonetheless.  Goodell said of his findings that he found nothing that, "tainted the Patriots accomplishments."

 

So... who wants to be honest and who wants to be spiteful and dishonest?

Who decides to be what really doesn't affect me.

yeah im sure the league tried to minimize it so ratings wouldnt plummet. but the fact is they didnt fine them almost a million dollars and take draft picks away for something "routine and common" just because other people did it doesnt make it right. as jimmy admitted he didnt gain an advantage from it. obviously bill did. Why would bill tape those signals if there was no advantage to be gained? just for fun? just to pay 500,000 grand and laugh? I guess so since because as you say "since one reported tape involved wasnt accesible, the rest of the tapes dont matter, spy gate wasnt real"

So the penalty dictates the severity of the "crime" and not the "crime" itself? So when weed dealers get 15 years in prison they're the scum of the earth but when sex offenders get out in 5 they're not that bad? The crime is the crime, which was taping a Jets game from a location deemed illegal by the memo. The penalty is a seperate issue and should have been opposed and fought.

Let's be fair here...... this doesn't apply to all the Pats fans that come to our Forum.

 

   I will agree with your statement,  in that,  there are a "select few" on here that do as you said, but I also very much like and appreciate some of the other Pats fans that are on here.

in the case of the nfl yes, the system the nfl uses to reprimand teams has nothing to do with this countries legal system. punishments dont always fit the crime, but generally they do and the severity of a crime is reflected in the severity of a punishment. like all things there are exceptions. you using these few exceptions to say this is not true is as ridiculous as everything else youve said in this thread

Why did the NFL take a draft pick away from the Pats and fine them?  NFL did it not because they felt it was the right thing to do.  They did it out of fear and intimidation from the U.S. government.  lol

 

We need to go back and remember that Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania threatened congressional hearings against the NFL and Patriots over spy gate because he was upset the Pats beat his Eagles in the Super Bowl.  I kid you not.  This Senator actually wanted to drag Roger Goodell and members of the Patriots organization in front of congress and put them under oath over this nonsense.  lol  And many Pats haters would love that (even though at this time in 2007 we had 150,000 troops in Iraq, no WMD's found, Osama Bin Laden was still alive and in hiding and right on the brink of the worse financial collapse since the Great Depression and Patriot haters cared more about this spy gate nonsense than more important things in life.)  It's amazing how people are so obsessed over the Patriots that the Patriots can get such an immature emotional reaction out of people and turn grown ups into sniffling whining weasels.

 

Specter is a big Eagles fan.  If the Pats played a different team in that Super Bowl and won I doubt Specter would have even cared. 

 

The NFL needed to do something for P.R. reasons whether or not it was justified.  They felt if they did nothing it would just increase more unwanted attention to the story, create more conspiracies like Goodell and Kraft being the best of friends (even though Goodell dislikes the Pats as he's a Jets fan and the NFL refs can't stand Belichick) and the NFL felt to squash it and move on was to do what they did to shut you up.  But no matter what the NFL did you just can't shut up ignorant people as Pats haters are still crying about it like some kid getting his lunch money stolen in 2nd grade.  The fact that Pats haters are still obsessed over this silly insignificant nonsense shows you that they are driven by hate and contempt and jealousy.  Get a life and move on.  Focus on improving your own lives.

Yet NE's crime isn't a mystery. We know exactly what it was: It was ignoring a league memo detailing where taping signals was and was not a league violation.

The Broncos did the same thing a few years ago and they didn't receive the same penalty. Why?

 

It was a drastic over reach by a brand new commisioner.

 

It also has nothing to do with "cheating to win Superbowls."

The hypocrisy is amazing.  lol

 

Unless your team never cheated and never had any players who did steroids you can't call the Pats cheaters.

Unless your favorite NCAA college team never violated NCAA rules then you can't call the Pats cheaters.

Unless you never cheated on a test in your life you can't call the Pats cheaters.

Unless you never cheated on a significant other you can't call the Pats cheaters.

 

Can you imagine all the illegal horrible immoral activities Colts' fans and all other NFL fans have done in their lives that makes spy gate look like nothing?  lol  Go into the parking lot outside Colts' stadium or any NFL stadium after a game and watch all the drunkard fans get behind the wheels of their cars and drive home intoxicated while they're slobbering all over themselves: "Patriots cheated, spy gate."  lol

Numerous coaches, especially Superbowl coaches, who have worked for multiple organizations, have come forward and said everyone had did it. Thats why the league sent the memo to everyone, because it was common practice and they were alerting everyone to a rule change regarding where they can set up their recording devices.

 

Now, simple question, is the Cowboys Dynasty a result of cheating? Yes or no? Was Cowher's Steeler Superbowl a result of cheating? Yes or no?

The more people whine about spy gate the more it makes them look bad.  Around 20 million Americans lost their health insurance and the poverty rate is at it's highest in America since 1968 and people whine like children on the playground about this silly non issue called spy gate.

 

Former Steelers' head coach Bill Cowher dismisses impact of 'Spygate'...

Also, why do teams video tape?  It's actually used to scout other players.

source for everyone does it please

 

also if what you said is true then no i dont consider it cheating  because the rule wasnt in place so everyone could do it if they wanted to, this negates the effects of the advantage,

 

but once the patriots are the only team doing it and no one else because a rule change its giving them an unfair advantage

 

you know what scratch that it still was cheating, just because there isnt a rule doesnt make it right, and the welkers hit on talib thread you guys whined about how terrible that was even though it was coompletely legal

 

just because the rule book doesnt say "players are not allowed to butt rape someone on the field" doesnt mean its okay so why should this?

I hope we learn something from watching the Super Bowl and why we havent won more Super Bowls... its all about the trenches NOT WR's ...half ares OL and DL you only get an invite but NO Super Bowl !

 

Yup. That's why we lost a 19-0 season (next to a helmet catch). Giants defensive line could do no wrong that day and Brady was scrambling under extreme diress virtually every single play. Was a battle to the finish.
