    if he was the genius everyone thought he was, he would have thought of sneakier ways to cheat.

    I wonder if this will taint the Patriots dynasty claims?

    His legacy and his football intellect will be tarnished from this moment on. Not only that, the brilliant career of T. Brady will be questioned as well, whether or not Brady knew about the cheating because he (along with rest of the team) benefit from it.

    This sucks though-stains just don't get cleaned off easily, they stay(i.e. Nixon and Watergate).

    And people wonder who would win if Patriots went up against the truly great teams like the Cowboys of the 90's or the 49ers of the 80's... NO contest!

    Well I gotta tell ya...

    The Pats won all those SB's by what? 3 points?

    If he was getting the "unfair competitive advantage" then they ARE tarnished.

    Not unlike getting an extra 10% on your fly ball when taking steriods. A difference between a fly ball out and a homerun.... for Belichek and the Pats possibly the difference between winning and losing ALL 3 SB's.

    Every one already knew what Dallas was going to do on both offense and on defense in the early 90s. The schemes were pretty vanilla. Dallas just ran them well on both sides of the ball. Those were good times. :D

    The 49ers aren't tarnished even though they we caught cheating the salary cap.

    I think its a little different. On one hand you have the equivalent to illegal recruiting. The other one you actually steal signals and know exactly what the defense is running? What if A-Rod knew before hand exactly what pitches the pitcher was going to throw and in what order?

    Bellichick broke the law, but stealing signs has been part of gamesmanship in baseball and football in all era's.

    Where this is different is with todays technology it's almost possible to decipher call and relay it to coaches that can relay it onto field. Or communicate to players what the calls are and they observe calls on field directly. BB was stupid to brazenly send his camera to opposing sideline and up close do it. Could have been done in a box with binoculars.

    Nolls steelers were directly tied to Steroids late 1970's. San Fran and Shanahans Broncos cheated the Salary Cap. Now BB is tied to stealing some plays. It'll be dealt with and blow over.

    And now that Pats can't steal plays they will go 5-10 rest of season out?

    Every team knew what the Dallas teams of mid 1990's was going to do and could not stop us.
