    I don't think this story had hit critical mass yet. When it does it will get worse for Belichick.

    Where else can it go? I'm honestly asking. Unless he does it again, I'm not sure what else can be done.

    I mean in terms of country knowing about it. This weekend it will be topic of discussion on every NFL pre game show.

    If the Patriots make it to post season what do you think main story line will be ?

    OK, I see what you're saying now. I don't think there's any question the Pats will make the playoffs, but this is going to be a Sword of Damocles over the team's head all season, IMO.

    It depends on what the public perception becomes.

    If the public ends up believing the Patriots have been doing this all along, it taints the three Super Bowls and all the record of success, much like the belief that Bonds' late-career success was because of steroids.

    Only the most naive of Patriots looser fanboys will think they just started doing this now or recently.

    It is certainly going to be a distraction. I suppose the one way things could really get bad is if more allegations come out of the woodwork and are somehow proven to be true. If so, and the integrity of the Pats' previous successes are compromised, then both the Pats and the NFL has a serious problem.

    Of course he should get in. He's one of the best defensive minds in the game and a 3-time Superbowl winning coach. To not include him would be to devalue the Hall. No reason why they can't include a blurb somewhere in the Hall about Tapegate, too.

    I mean what he did was stupid and dumb but still doesn't take way his coaching abilities, HOF for sure he got to be.

    As things stand now, he's a sure-fire HOF. No one expects coaches or players in the HOF to be saints, so I don't see how this hurts him. Now, if something comes out like, "Thanks to the tape they new EXACTLY what plays the other teams were calling on the SB game-winning drives" then, OK, it might. Until then, though, nope.
     
  10. Do you think bostonbred will ever realize Super Bowl is two words?

    I don't think we've heard the last of this story. The New England media is going to dig into this, and I wouldn't be surprised if we find that this isn't the only dirty trick in Belichick's bag. Right now, his HOF candidacy is fine, but that could change.

    I voted yes, but that has more to do with my overriding dislike of Bill Bellicose than anything else.
