Those Patriots and the politics of Cheating

We all know that there is a lot of cheating involved in American politics. Lots of lies and dirty deals. The same holds true for America’s major pastime sport, Football. And the biggest cheaters in sports are the New England Patriots.


Because of the media, even people that do not follow American football know that the New England Patriots are, by record, the best team in the business known as the National Football League.

Many of them also know that the Patriots are cheaters.

And guess what, they just got caught cheating again.

The Patriots owner Robert Kraft was caught on video tape paying for sex at a massage parlor. He claimed he was innocent, yet demanded that the video tape not be shown to anyone. Yes, he did NOT want anyone to see the video, the video that should prove his innocence. He claimed that if people saw it he would not get a fair trial. That is how it works when you are guilty. And when you are rich you get away with it, because you can buy yourself out of it. (Democrats will be sure to point out which big time politician is a friend of this owner.)

So we start with the fact that the teams OWNER is like your typical politician; a sleazy, liar who cheats the system by paying dirty money to beat it. Or should we say suck it.

Before games it seems that this owner not only pays some on-field refs, but also buys out the head officiator who controls the games in real time from an office in New York City.

Go back and watch the highlight films and notice how many times when the Patriots are losing and cannot move the ball that they throw it way down the field and get a pass interference call. It happens more for the Patriots than any other team.

They are losing to the Jets because they cannot move the ball. So they throw way down field toward the goal line and out of nowhere and on-field ref calls a phantom pass interference call on the Jets. Patriots score right after that. Then the Jets score and the refs signal touchdown. The Jets are going to win the game. BUT WAIT! The head ref in his office calls the field and declares the player fumbled the ball away, even though it is clear on film that the Jet tight end crossed the ball over the goal line first!

No score, Patriots win.

The Stealer tight end catches the ball and crosses the goal line. Refs signal touchdown. BUT WAIT! The head ref in his office calls the field and declares the player did not hold onto the the ball, even though it is clear on film that the tight end crossed the ball over the goal line first!

No score, Patriots win.

The Patriots loose the ball; the Jaguar linebacker has it and is heading for the goal line! BUT WAIT! The refs have blown the whistle.

No score, Patriots win again.

In their Super Bowl history, Kraft could not buy his way into a win. In the last minutes of every game, the Patriots had never led by more than 3 or 4 points. And after the Jaguar game, they were behind 28-3 at halftime. The Patriots then looked at the Falcons signals they had cheated and filmed during the first half and came out and won the game.

And all that was in just one season!

The next fact is that the Patriot QUARTERBACK, the teams on-field leader, is also a cheater.

Even those who do not follow football know about Tom Brady’s balls. And that he likes them deflated.

Yes, the one they call Tom Shady lied to the nation stating the he did not know the teams equipment mans real name, even though that man had been with the team for 20 years, 3 years longer than Brady had been there. And he said that even though that man’s nickname was “Deflator”. Then Brady destroyed his cell phone to hide all the text evidence of his wrong doing. (Or was that because of him and Hillary sharing all those sexy “What color panties are you wearing tonight?” text? Is that why did Hillary destroyed her phones at the same time?).
So Brady lied about having that man take the air out of his balls. He cheated, broke the rules, and got suspended and fined for it.

The next fact is that the overall team leader, the COACH of the team, also cheated. He filmed the other teams coaching signals in what became known as “Spygate”. Like his boss Kraft, who was fined $250,000, he too was fined for his part, fined half-a-million dollars.

And now we are right back to Spygate as the Patriots were caught cheating again. A camera man working for the Patriots organization was caught filming the Bengals coaching staff giving out signals. The camera man asked to have the footage he recorded destroyed right there to avoid any problems.

“According to sources who have viewed the tape, it shows about eight minutes of footage focusing on recording the Bengals’ sideline. It’s a direct view of the sideline as players run on and off the field and coaches make signals for plays.”

The Patriots are claiming it was an oversight on their part and that they have no control with what gets filmed.

“Originally, we heard several excuses come up, but the overwhelming tone was it was all a big misunderstanding. The Patriots did release a statement last night admitting that they did get footage of the Bengals’ sideline and accept the blame. They pinned all of it on the production crew not being informed that what they were doing was against league rules, though.”

But those who have seen the film claim they were recording/stealing the opposing teams coaching signals, the same thing they got caught cheating at before.

“A source told ESPN "a Bengals employee was watching the videographer/cameraman who identified himself as a Robert Kraft employee. The Bengals employee kept an eye on that monitor, (and) the shot was of the Bengals coaches and staff on the sidelines for the entire 1st quarter."

• According to The Athletic's Paul Dehner Jr., who cited sources who have seen the footage, "it shows about eight minutes of footage focusing on recording the Bengals’ sideline. It’s a direct view of the sideline as coaches make signals for plays. This isn’t an over-the-shoulder of the advanced scout who is doing his job stuff. This is shooting the sideline. For an extended period of time. The egregious nature of the video is why it set off the firestorm it did during the game with the Bengals executives in the press box."


Will the Patriots get away with their cheating?

Or do you think the Patriots are telling the truth and they did not have anything to do with what was being filmed?

Or do you think it is the same old story; the Patriots were cheating and got caught again?

Boy they must really love them some GB Packers/Aaron Rodgers because that's the only way that garbage team/QB can score. The rest of it is pretty meh, I really don't care or trust anything thats reported these days. And is the NFL fixed? You BET it is. Stop watching it.

For anyone who may not know, here are some highlights of the Patriots past cheating:

“Belichick, almost five years after being fired by the Browns and fully aware that this was his last best shot as a head coach, placed an innovative system of cheating in the hands of his most trusted friend.

As the patriots became a dynasty and Belichick became the first coach to win three Super Bowls in four years, an entire system of covert videotaping was developed and a secret library created. "It got out of control," a former Patriots assistant coach says. Sources with knowledge of the system say an advance scout would attend the games of upcoming Patriots opponents and assemble a spreadsheet of all the signals and corresponding plays. The scout would give it to Adams, who would spend most of the week in his office with the door closed, matching the notes to the tapes filmed from the sideline. Files were created, organized by opponent and by coach. During games, Walsh later told investigators, the Patriots' videographers were told to look like media members, to tape over their team logos or turn their sweatshirt inside out, to wear credentials that said Patriots TV or Kraft Productions. The videographers also were provided with excuses for what to tell NFL security if asked what they were doing: Tell them you're filming the quarterbacks. Or the kickers. Or footage for a team show.”

“During games, Adams sat in the coaches' box, with binoculars and notes of decoded signals, wearing a headset with a direct audio line to Belichick. Whenever Adams saw an opposing coach's signal he recognized, he'd say something like, "Watch for the Two Deep Blitz," and either that information was relayed to Brady or a play designed specifically to exploit the defense was called. A former Patriots employee who was directly involved in the taping system says "it helped our offense a lot," especially in divisional games in which there was a short amount of time between the first and second matchups, making it harder for opposing coaches to change signals.”

“At Gillette Stadium, the scrambling and jamming of the opponents' coach-to-quarterback radio line -- "small s---" that many teams do, according to a former Pats assistant coach -- occurred so often that one team asked a league official to sit in the coaches' box during the game and wait for it to happen. Sure enough, on a key third down, the headset went out.”

“During the first half, Jets security monitored Estrella, who held a camera and wore a polo shirt with a taped-over Patriots logo under a red media vest that said: NFL PHOTOGRAPHER 138. With the backing of Jets owner Woody Johnson and Tannenbaum, Jets security alerted NFL security, a step Mangini acknowledged publicly later that he never wanted. Shortly before halftime, security encircled and then confronted Estrella. He said he was with "Kraft Productions." They took him into a small room off the stadium's tunnel, confiscated his camera and tape,

“The view around much of the league was that Goodell had done a major favor for Kraft, one of his closest confidants who had extended critical support when he became the commissioner the previous summer. Kraft is a member of the NFL's three-person compensation committee, which each year determines Goodell's salary and bonuses -- $35 million in 2013, and nearly $44.2 million in 2012. "It felt like this enormous break was given to the Patriots," a former exec says. They were also angry at Belichick -- partly, some admit, out of jealousy for his success but also because of the widespread rumors that he was always pushing the envelope. The narrative that paralleled the Patriots' rise -- a team mostly void of superstars, built not to blow out opponents but to win the game's handful of decisive plays -- only increased rivals' suspicions. After all, the Patriots had won three Super Bowls by a total of nine points. .. opponents say. "Why would they go to such great lengths for so long to do it and hide it if it didn't work?" a longtime former executive says. "It made no sense."

I actually quit watching NFL years ago because it's clearly rigged.

By the way - is it a coincidence the "Patriots" became the #1 team right after 911 happened? Doubtful. I think it's subliminal and goes way beyond the coaches or owners.

In fact, I'm pretty sure every major sport is fixed to a degree (except WWE that's 100% real, hahaha kidding).

Although I do believe tom Brady is the luckiest man on earth, I'm not really convinced that the patriots can cheat and get away with it.
Sure I have seen some games Ive questioned how they were so prepared....

I think it's possible the shadow govt that is behind all the propaganda, controls media, is allegedly behind 911, the wars, the PATRIOT ACT, etc --- purposely fixed it so the PATRIOTS would win and be #1.

It's a type of subliminal reinforcement and symbolic inference they are possibly programming in our minds intentionally.

Clearly didn't see the Patriots throw the game away on Sunday. Not sure what Belichek was thinking to challenge a first down spot and whine about no pass interfernce, but because he did, they missed an opportunity later on to challenge a clear TD the refs missed. Not only that, but they sorely missed those timeouts.

As a Chiefs fan, I'm not complaining though.

It's tough enough to be a Jets fan, we don't need cheating on top of it!

Old friend Eric Mangini knew that Belicheat video taped his opponents and he told him not to do it to his team. But the Pats did not listen. Eric called him out, the Pats got busted and the friendship was ruined.

“After the season, Belichick would acknowledge the Patriots taped a "significant number" of games, and according to documents and sources, they recorded signals in at least 40 games during the Spygate era.”

"Owners, coaches, team executives and players were outraged by how little the league investigated what the Patriots' cheating had accomplished in games. The NFL refused to volunteer information -- teams that had been videotaped were not officially notified by the league office, sources say -- and some executives were told that the tapes were burned in a dumpster, not crushed into pieces in a conference room.”

"The Patriots told the league officials they possessed eight tapes containing game footage along with a half-inch-thick stack of notes of signals and other scouting information belonging to Adams, Glaser says. The league officials watched portions of the tapes. Goodell was contacted, and he ordered the tapes and notes to be destroyed, but the Patriots didn't want any of it to leave the building, arguing that some of it was obtained legally and thus was proprietary. So in a stadium conference room, Pash and the other NFL executives stomped the videotapes into small pieces and fed Adams' notes into a shredder..."

Ought to be a Lions fan and watch the refs take game after game. It is a really joke. I don't even watch anymore.

Ever play an online sports book? It's an education to say the least. When multimillions are gambled on professional sports and even some amateur college sports you would be very naive to think corruption of one flavor or another dosen't decide the outcome in advance more often than not.

This matter has been settled and entered into the Congressional record .

So you do not think Belichick should be suspended?

He clearly runs that team like a warlord. He knows who is doing what and it does not matter if those doing the filming are in their early 20's, because they are from New England and everyone their knows about Spygate and filming the other teams coaches.

And don't give us "It's only the Bengals" because that is a new coach that the Patriots have no film on yet.

The video of Belichick on the sidelines yelling "Where's Shawn McVay?" tells us that Belichick had sideline film on the Rams too.

When the Steelers ruled the NFL “ they play dirty “

The Oakland Raiders in their heyday “ they target key players “

When Dallas was the king “ favoritism by the refs “

Even in baseball and the Yankees . “ it’s unfair they have too much money “

Doesn’t matter who you are. If you’re on top someone always has axe to grind .

If they had caught the Cincinnati Bengals taping .

There would’ve barely have been a whisper .

"Tell them you're filming the quarterbacks. Or the kickers. Or footage for a team show.”
When you are cheating then there is a reason you are on top.

The Commish does not want his star coach, team and buddy owner soiled, so they will probably only loose a draft pick.

And just for you - Suck on the Jugular - worst Stones song ever?
