During the offseason, I made some comments about Bill Belichick and how he bends the rules to achieve success.
Now, we learn that the NFL was aware of him bending the rules as well. Take a look at a few of the rule changes on the field, specifically about some of the gray areas, and you can probably pin them on something old Bill did. And then, of course, you have this incident with him videotaping the Jets defensive signals.
The commish had sent a memo to all 32 teams outlining some things the organizations are NOT allowed to do. This was one of them. Bill decided he was above that, and decided to try it anyway. He reportedly apologized to Goodell, but the commish will take some disciplinary action against the Patriots. I can only hope he suspends the coaching staff for a few weeks. Or the season.
You see, its like I said in summary on my piece: Bill is very much like his little friend, Nick. They try and twist everything to work in their favor. Nick has shown he isn't above lying, so I have to assume Bill isn't either.
I'm not saying that either of them overtly cheats, but they'll do anything to get some advantage. Including, outright breaking the rules.
The NFL is noticing. And we're glad.
