Dude, if you're going to have this thread, at least scratch the surface!

The mics that don't work. . . the snow plows .. . .the heaters or not heaters. .. .the stolen playbooks... the player substitutions . . . Heck, the video and the footballs are just the tip of the iceberg.

Cheaters through and through. 20 years from now we'll know of more, I have no doubt. . .

Ill say it I won't be surprised at all if the have mics and recording equipment in the opposing locker rooms, all venues where teams stay at bugged etc etc.

Having been caught twice now and mountains of evidence saying they did it before and we not caught....

Wouldn't be surprised if they did find a way to squawk their way into charger COM's ....

You can add to all of those:
1. IR Gate - when the Cheatriots lost a 3rd round draft pick in 1996 for improperly using the Injured Reserve list.
2. PEDS Gate - SIX Cheatriots have been caught over the years, including Edelman this year, and suspended 4 games for using PEDS...
3. HEADSET Gate - Pats were accused by the Steelers in 2015 of jamming the signals from the Steelers to their QB.
4. SCRAPS Gate - The Pats have been accused of signing players cut from other teams to grill them on their playbook, then cut them...

Here's the complete Cheatriot Cheat List: https://yourteamcheats.com/NE

And they still misused the IR list in the early 2000's where they allowed players on the IR list to participate in practice, thereby gaining an advantage over teams who followed the rule.

Listen to Ross Tucker who witnessed it during his journeyman career when he was brought into NE towards the end of his career. Tucker noticed that a player who had been IR'd was practicing that day, and when he brought it to the attention of Troy Brown, Brown responded "Everybody does it."

Tucker noted that none of the other six franchises that he had been a part of did it.

And guess who signed Kenneth Farrow after the Bolts cut him? Yep, Cheatriots. Signed him in August. Cut him. Signed him again. Cut him again. I'm guessing they didn't pump him for enough intel on the Bolts the first time around, so they needed to sign him again for a second round of questions...before cutting him again...

It was like 10-15 years after the 49rs won the SB against the Chargers we found out how much they cheated. Did not follow salary cap. Paid players under the table. It was disgusting that SB should have an * next to it. Even now we know how much they cheated nobody mentions it like they do with Pats scandals. Still pisses me off to this day.

Oh, dude, I'm with you on that.

49'ers cheated.

Donks cheated.

Pats cheated.

All were caught. No tinfoil hats here. it was admitted.

The only difference is that the Pats have made an organizational decision to cheat in many different ways. Every way possible. Every year. Even after getting caught. Indeed-- after the commish literally burns the tapes, thus protecting your ass, you incite your fan following, and your lapdogs in the media, to go after the commish as if he screwed you! Rather than SAVED you!

Same with Saint Brady smashing the evidence -- err, routinely changing electronic devices . . . . . .

It is indeed worth noting that the league is in the ENTERTAINMENT business -- not the sports business -- by their own account .. . . .

All the fines, bad publicity and lost draft picks as penalties add up to NOTHING compared to all the rings and trophies accumulated in the North East.

They don't care at all. It is all about winning at any cost.

Anthony Lynn at 4-6 before the 2017 Thanksgiving game in Dallas:
"I am not afraid of the big picture. Coaches preach about a game at a time, and, of course, that is correct. But I want our team to know that everything is in front of them."
