    "We wanted to take and destroy that information," he said. "They may have collected it within the rules, but we couldn't determine that. So we felt that it should be destroyed."

    :
    Yeah, because keeping the tapes certainly would have caused harm.

    There was absolutely no reason the tapes needed to be destroyed & could have certainly been put away & locked up.

    He ordered the destruction of evidence, plain & simple.

    This was just plain wrong on Goodell's part. No one should destroy evidence. Who knows when or how the tapes may come into question again. And, it looks like they have. And to use the excuse that other teams do it is also wrong. Two "wrongs" don't make a "right," as the old saying goes.

    Bad move on Goodell's part.
    I guess if the politicians can do it in much more serious situations why can't the people that are playing a game?

    [size=14pt]Senator wants to know why NFL destroyed Patriots spy tapes[/size]
    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3225539
    With the Super Bowl fast approaching, a senior Republican senator says he wants the NFL to explain why it destroyed evidence of the New England Patriots cheating scandal.

    "I am very concerned about the underlying facts on the taping, the reasons for the judgment on the limited penalties and, most of all, on the inexplicable destruction of the tapes," said Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., in a Thursday letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
    But Len Pasquarelli from ESPN says Specter should keep his nose out of it.

    But I disagree. The press always uses the excuse, "The public needs to know." Now when the public is asking about it ESPN says they shouldn't have that right. Make up your mind Len, it can't be both ways.

    Re: Goodell defends destroying tapes

    The team and coach were fined and a draft pick was removed, there wasn't a long appeal, case was closed.
    Was Sen. Arlen Specter going to open this to congress to get his own limelight like the baseball hearings?
    Is Specter setting the stage to appeal the 2005 Super Bowl or Superbowl?

    Shouldn't Spector be sticking to his vow to push for a law to stop the league from signing big TV contracts on behalf of the teams.

    What ever happened to Specters "senate investigation into possible antitrust violations relative to the Owens/Eagles case."

    Re: Goodell defends destroying tapes

    I think the tapes revealed too much about the patriots. I don't know anything about the subject, but a friend of a friend knows a guy who washes dishes at a restaurant Tom Brady ate at once. Long story short, the Patriots are cyborgs. When they first show up at minicamp Belicheck (the heartless 3/4 robot) turns his players into half man half machine.

    Ever wonder how the Patriots get such high performance out of guys who should be over the hill. Moss, Seau, Bruschi, Harrison, Faulk.

    Heres where things get a little strange, now I'm just thinking out loud. Goodell has every Transformer action figure that has existed since the 80's, surely he wants to be a cyborg too. Once he learned the pats awful secret, from watching there evil library of horrible videos, he cut himself a deal. In exchange for him destroying and then denying the existence of the pats whole secret library, Beli would turn Goodell into the most powerful business cyborg of all time.

    Now when I'm wrapping my head in aluminum foil do i go clockwise or counterclockwise?
