    Re: Patriots employee filmed Rams the night before Super Bowl XXXVI

    After his state of the NFL press conference yesterday, Goodell was asked if the league’s investigation into the Pats included allegations that they recorded the Rams walkthrough in 2002.

    “I’m not aware of that,” Goodell said.

    : Sure you do Goodell. You were the one who claimed the Patriots turned over ALL the tapes they have made.

    Apparently, like I have stated before, clearly they have not.

    There's no doubt in my mind that *Belichick has more tapes as well as copies of the ones he sent in.

    Good find. If that is true, the patriots really did get a slap on the wrist.

    Re: Patriots employee filmed Rams the night before Super Bowl XXXVI

    According to the source, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to all 32 clubs last night in which he said he was satisfied the Patriots fully cooperated and complied with his instructions.
    After his state of the NFL press conference yesterday, Goodell was asked if the league’s investigation into the Pats included allegations that they recorded the Rams walkthrough in 2002.

    “I’m not aware of that,” Goodell said.
    Goodell claims Belichick the Patriots complied & gave him all the tapes, yet now he claims he is unaware of the Rams tape?

    Hey Roger Gullible, I'd bet Belichick could easily sell you one of these.......

    I don't get the anger directed towards Goodell.
    I just think he's doing the responsible thing and acting on what he knows.


    Why would he have seen or heard about a tape from the Rams' walkthrough?
    Even assuming that the Patriots did video tape the walkthrough, why would Belichick keep the tape and hand it over to Goodell?


    The only reason to admit to it earlier this year would be if Belichick thought he might get caught with it later.
    If the tape had been destroyed sometime in the past five years (it almost certainly would have been), then there would be no evidence.
    Even if someone comes forward, as they are now, it's not going to be easy to pin anything on the team.

    So when Goodell says that he's not aware of this, I don't think he's trying to brush it off.
    I think he's being honest.
    More than that, he promised that if new information came to light that showed the Patriots lied to him about the nature or quantity of their illegal taping operations, he would lay the smack down.
    By saying he's not aware of this, all Goodell is doing is leaving that avenue open.


    So I don't think people giving Goodell a hard time for this are on the right track.
    The people giving the team a hard time probably are.
    The Patriots either did this or they didn't, but I don't believe an NFL cover-up is in progress.
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]

    You don't destroy evidence....unless you want to hide something.
    Goodell destroying the tapes displays to me that there was plenty of evidence to support that the pats titles were not entirely earned. So he destroys the tapes to try and protect the integrity of the NFL.
    If he would have kept the tapes he could've proved there was nothing shady about there titles. Which then brings you back to the question, why did he destroy the tapes?
