The New England Patriots Send A Message
Earlier this season, The Patriots organization was embarrassed by being caught violating a rule concerning videotaping stuff during a game.
What was left unspoken was that just about ever team records their games in some fashion, and the overhead still photography after each series doesn't seem to draw the attention of these outraged fans. Moreover, how one can video tape something, and make it actionable intelligence by the start of the second half seems to be a Herculean task beyond even the supernatural skills of valerie plame.
The Patriots responded by accepting full responsibility and their punishment, and showed some class in the process.
Then some under-talented, over-rated, sore loser also-rans stepped forward, and made some unsavory and ungentlemanly commentary regarding what happened.
The result is the Patriot's response to these events: public silence and kicking the living snot out every team they face the rest of the year.
So when you play the Patriots, you better strap on your hat and lace up your shoes and do your woofing on the field, or you will get humiliated and embarrassed like the pathetic Redskins.
