There are a bunch of fan bases you do not like the New England Patriots for more than just the fact that they win a lot and seem to always go deep into the playoffs to fight for a Super Bowl.
A lot of folks can’t stand the fact that their 20-year run has been marred in controversies and cheating allegations. One person is taking his anger one step further.
Mark Madden of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review thinks the latest allegation of cheating involving the Patriots recorded the sidelines of the Bengals should get them disqualified from the postseason.
No, seriously. He wrote about it.
“The Patriots should be kicked out of this season’s playoffs. They have been caught cheating three times since 2007. How many times did they not get caught? How many other sidelines did the Patriots film?
Cheating is part of the Patriots’ business plan. It is institutional. It is constant.”
Madden goes on to state that Commissioner Roger Goodell won’t discipline them properly because the francise is clearly one of hsi “favored nations.”
“Kicking the Patriots out of this season’s playoffs seems absurd. It isn’t. Not for a franchise with a resume of cheating that dates back 12 years. Not after three strikes. This latest episode shows that the Patriots just won’t stop cheating. The discipline imposed so far hasn’t worked.
The Patriots’ litany of fraud diminishes everything they’ve done no matter how loud Boston bleats.”
There isn’t a chance of this actually happening, but he idd provide several key points.
We’ll have to wait and see if the league does anything this time around.
