Breaking: Patriots Can’t Win Without Cheating
HERE WE GO AGAIN. From Spygate to Deflategate, now there’s a new report just released today that the Pats taped teams’ signals in 40 games from 2000-2007. Check out the full story here. Here’s a snippet of it:
Clearly Roger Goodell is trying to save face after he lost the deflategate ruling a few days ago. Word around these NFL streets—NFL owners included—think Deflategate was a “Make-up Call” for the way he handled Spygate. Well, he failed miserably here once again.
Using interviews with more than 90 sources around the NFL, those in the know say that the Patriots signal stealing (Spygate) lasted “at least 40 games over a period of several seasons from 2000 to 2007,” and that the league never fully investigated all the accusations against the team.
Goodell on OTL report & Spygate/Deflategate: ” I have not seen any report and I’m not aware of any connection between procedures”
But. Goodell saying that there was no connection between Spy and Deflate is a lie. They were cited as repeat offenders.

Goodell said he is open to a change in the discipline process in order to not take up all of his time. “I am very open to changing my role in that. It’s become extremely time-consuming and I think I have to be focused on a variety of other issues,” Goodell said, adding that he’s spoken to some owners about such a change.
