    Again, consider the Pats multi-year record. Belichick's cheating has probably been more impactful on NFL results than Donaghy's impact on the NBA. Belichick walked off with only a wrist slap...complete :bs:

    You seem to be assuming that the advantage he gained was the primary reason for the great record. What if it only helped by 5%?

    Also, if they wouldn't have used video cameras, they would have done it manually and probably achieved the same advantage.

    Just like Stern not interested in more bad officials, NFL doesn't want to dig into this to come up with possibly more teams cheating. That would hurt the ratings.

    The land of the free and the home of the lawsuit.

    A New York Jets season ticket holder has filed a $184 million class-action lawsuit against the Pats and coach Belichick for "deceiving customers".

    How they came up with the $184 million number:
    Apparently this guy has a history of this sort of thing.
