New England Patriots History of Cheating
Following allegations the New England Patriots used under-inflated footballs (which are easier to throw and catch) on Sunday vs the Colts, I am reminded of why I dislike the Patriots organization so much. In 2007 they were disciplined by the NFL for secretly videotaping New York Jets coaching signals. Coach Bill Belichick was fined $500,000 (the maximum allowed by the league and the largest fine ever imposed on a coach in the league’s 87-year history) for his role in the incident, the Patriots were fined $250,000 and lost a first round draft pick.
Keep this in mind: This is not a playground infraction. Imagine devious grown men, planning and plotting to get an edge….to cheat. In my opinion, there is nothing honest or noble about the New England Patriots.
