One step closer

by Dan Bilicki In: Football

One step closer With the Brett Favre retirement/cry-fest in the rearview mirror, the next big thing on the tips of everyone’s tongues should be Spygate, again.

Apparently Matt Walsh, the guy who was the cameraman for the Patriots and was supposedly ordered to help them cheat, has been hammering out a deal with the NFL to talk. The hold up in this process is that he wants immunity of something of the sort and his lawyers should have no problem getting that. But really, immunity from what? He’s a semi-por golfer in Hawaii now or something; it’s not like he’s still around the league in any capacity.

When Walsh does eventually talk — it’s not an if any more — we can finally get to the bottom of how much cheating that Belichick has been doing and for how long. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: If he has been cheating by taping opponents signals or practices, he should be banned from the NFL. It would be a travesty to the game.

Another, somewhat harsh, response could even be reverse the outcomes of all the games the Patriots had cheated in. Including their Super Bowl wins if the evidence is there. I don’t think an asterisk is good enough at this point.
