Editorial:  Walsh Tapes just Chips off the Iceberg that is SpyGate

    The tapes that Matt Walsh turned over to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell included regular season games against San Diego, Miami (?) Buffalo (??) and Cleveland (are you kidding?  You and I could have beaten Cleveland in 01 even if you were having a bad game!).  It also included a playoff game against Pittsburgh (that I can believe).  The NFL office has issued a statement to the Associated Press that “This is consistent with what the Patriots had admitted they had been doing, consistent with what we already knew.”

    The “juice organ” of the NFL, NFL Network, and virtually every analyst has said that this is the end of the story.  The tapes showed exactly what the Pats and Bill Belichick had said existed.  But, don't believe that is the entire story.

    First of all, we know for a fact that these tapes are not all that were taken.  All the evidence indicates that Belichick and his minions have been taping every game since he became the coach of the Pats.  Fans in Cleveland probably wish that he had thought of taping during his Titanic like stint with their team in the 90's.  Does anyone believe that Walsh was the only guy filming the games?  Of course not.  Who else was involved and what tapes do they have of which games? 

    There is a rumor that the Pats video taped the Rams walk through prior to Superbowl that was printed in the Boston papers.  Walsh was never associated with that rumor.  So the question is who else was taping?

    As a final bit of proof this is not the full extent of the Patriot violations, I offer this question.  Can anyone with an IQ above 7 really believe that Belichick was so concerned about the Cleveland Browns that he taped the 01 game but felt that the defensive signals of the Indianapolis Colts were not worth the cost of a video tape?  Not for one New England second!  (A New England second is half as long as a New York second.)

    The regular season and playoff history of Colts vs. Pats each rank among the top games of the decade.  There was home field advantage at stake in virtually every regular season game in that period and the winner of the playoff game between them was the favorite to be Super Bowl champion. 

    The NFL wants desperately to end to the news coverage of this scandal and will turn a blind eye to the obvious holes in evidence the size of the Grand Canyon.  But don't expect the NFL to dig deeper into the issue.  The league will gladly shove the video tapes under the rug and hope that no reporter trips over the budge in the carpet.
