    Goodell wants to get tougher on spying

    [size=12pt]Goodell wants to get tougher on spying[/size]

    In the aftermath of the discipline levied against the New England Patriots for taping opponents defensive signals, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is seeking a sweeping crackdown on spying for next season.

    It would include harsher penalties on teams and employees caught spying; unannounced inspections of locker rooms and coaches' areas in press boxes; and a lower threshold for imposing discipline on those who violate the rule.

    The changes, first disclosed in Friday's editions of the Washington Post, are contained in a memo obtained by The Associated Press. It was sent to the league's rule-making competition committee, which will consider them and make recommendations to the owners at the league meeting starting March 30 in Palm Beach, Fla.

    "I think there are a number of steps that should be taken in advance of the start of the 2008 season to improve and strengthen the enforcement procedures designed to preserve the competitive integrity of the game," Goodell wrote in the memo.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Interesting read my friend.

    Leads me to believe that there are other things going on, by more than just the Pats.
    Should be interesting to watch this unfold.

    I wonder if he needs a inspection staff.
    I would be willing to give up my Sundays to travel around to different football venues to assist with the spot checks.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
