First of all I want to apologize for writing about this. I'm sure you're all getting sick and tired of reading about it...as am I. Which is why I've decided to write yet another blog about this topic. What topic am I speaking of? Why spygate of course.
So, spygate is done right? Right? Sadly I wouldn't bet any money on it. Senator Arlen Specter might try to open a congressional investigation into how the NFL investigated spygate.
Don't get me wrong I don't like the Patriots at all....and I have some questions about what Commisioner Goodell said. But a congressional investigation? That might be overkill. It's ok to me if Senator Specter privately thinks something is wrong with the way everything with spygate was handeled but to blantantly waste tax payer money on a in the long run useless investigation to me is just crazy.
As I previously said I have a few questions about things. For example, as the commisioner was saying the Patriots were only taping divisional opponents for future usage..then why were they taping the Steelers, Browns and Chargers. Are those three teams in the AFC East? Well, I just looked to make sure I wasn't missing something and it turns out, as I thought, those three teams aren't in the AFC East. So, if the commisioner were to do the tiny amount of research and fact checking as I just did he would discover some of the teams the Pats were filming, not in their division.
Another thing that bothers me is the commisioner said that Bill Belichick simply had a misinterpretation of the rules. Yet, Matt Walsh was saying that Belichick was telling him not to get caught. Unless Belichick was talking about taking some cookies from the cookie jar, Belichick knew this was going on and was well aware that he shouldn't be doing this.
My last thought about spygate is just because Matt Walsh didn't say that these tapes were used to help in-game...that just makes it true? Now, unless I completely misunderstood something(which is possible, so if I did please correct me) Walsh handed off the tapes to someone else within the organization. After Walsh handed the tapes off, how does he know how they were used? Or even when they were used? Exactly, he doesn't. So for the commisioner to just believe what Walsh has to say about that might be a bit premature.
But, as I've said before opening a Congressional investigation into this is just too much. If you've somehow managed to read all of this I congratulate you. So, what are your thoughts about spygate? Thanks for reading
