cashvillesent Posted September 14, 2019 Share Posted September 14, 2019 Look- I've nothing but respect for how the Pats play the game on the field. Brady no doubt GOAT. I've seen him play live. He throws the BEST football I've ever seen. But he tampered with the ball prior to a SB run and was caught. The way he did it was against the rules. Then he obstructed the investigation. Spygate was on the way to another SB run. Bulluck called out the Pats as knowing our signals before the rest of OUR D knew what was called. They eliminated us from the playoffs with the game. Rules HAVE been broken. And if the best defense/rationalization is "Everybody does it" then just change or remove that specific rule. That rule (and others) are put there for a purpose with the intent to remove unfair advantage (or as you like to say "competitive edge/gamesmanship"). The Pats consistently attempt to circumvent the intent with the same advantage. My problem with the leage is simple. If EVERYBODY is doing it as alot of people suggest- just remove the F'n rule so EVERYBODY is abiding by the rules. I differ. People ascribe to the philosophy "If you ain't cheating, you ain't trying". I don't ascribe to that philosophy. I've been a champion in 3 different sports, at 3 different levels. Never had to gain a competitive edge by "bending" or breaking the rules. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
