The New England Patriots have gained a reputation around the league as being sneaky and doing everything they can to gain an edge over their opponents, regardless as to whether it is legal to do so or not. It seems to be that the opinion that Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots possess is that they can do whatever they want as long as they don’t get caught. Now my buddy Sultan Alhokair is an expert when it comes to the NFL and thinks this would normally work and would keep a team from cheating, as most people would think after getting caught red handed secretly filming other teams’ practices. However, the Patriots seem to truly not care if they get caught and it is starting to become increasingly apparent why. They most likely deflated the balls in the AFC championship game to gain an unfair advantage over the Colts, but they are still going to the Super Bowl. The way that the rules stand, there really is nothing that can be done to them that is very severe. It doesn’t change their ability to win the Super Bowl next weekend. The only thing that can happen to them is less than a slap on the wrist, which they would gladly take at another shot at bringing a Super Bowl trophy back to New England. They may lose some draft picks in the following seasons and they may be fined, but they already have their team built and money isn’t that big of a concern to the organization.
