I love all the nitwits who point fingers at the Patriots and smugly say well my team doesn’t cheat.
Really? Sorry to hit you with this, but every team in the league “cheats” if you want to call it that.
Let’s take a look at your New York Giants. Here are just a few examples because there are more:
” In 2016 in game 14 against the Dallas Cowboys Giants head coach Bob McAdoo illegally used a walkie talkie to communicate with quarterback Eli Manning. By using the illegal communication device, McAdoo was able to get around the 15 second cut-off imposed on the approved coach to player headsets. The Giants were fined $150,000 and McAdoo $50,000 for cheating and moved the Giants 4th round draft pick in the 2017 draft to the back of the round.
In his Autobiography Giants great Lawrence Taylor admitted to routinely hiring escorts on the eve of games for opponents in order to weaken their legs. He also admitted he smoked crack cocaine and was high on it during games and he borrowed urine from teammates to trick NFL drug testers.
Do I care? No I don’t, but just pointing out that when it’s the Patriots it’s a different story. To quote an old saying…”People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”
Ken “Hawk” Harrelson will be receiving the Ford C. Frick award? You have got to be kidding me. Ned Martin and others deserve the award long before Harrelson does.
