Somebody on patsfans.com cited the NFL rule, and it said something like "anywhere accessible for a team employee that is not completely enclosed with a roof" so no camera in the coach's box, etc.

As everything, it's ambiguous.

I think they got lucky. . .I was expecting a suspension, honestly.

And, I had my first confrontation with a disgruntled Jets fan today. For someone who doesn't know me (and only knows I'm a Pats/Sox fan), he was pretty nasty!

the punishment is in. $500,000 fine for the coach, $250,000 fine for the team but here's what hurts; loss of thier first round draft pick if they make the playoffs and loss of the second and third round picks if they don't make the playoffs...ouch. good thing they still have the niners' pick. and i totally agree, this will light a fire under them, big time. i'd like to see the line on the game sunday, bet it goes up... i say they win by 15. now they have a reason to feel slighted, you think these guys wouldn't have won those super bowls w/out the taping if there even was taping? thing is they usually do much better in the first have then barely hold on (all 3 wins were like that).

let me get this straight though, it'd be ok to put that same dude in the fifth row at the 50 with a camera? but it's illegal on the sideline? what's the difference? stupid rule. beware nfl, you'e stirred up a hornets nest. wait til Seymour and Harrison get back, there will be hell to pay.

In recent history the Patriots have developed a track record for thriving as underdogs and with controversy. What doesn?t kill them will make them stronger and I hope and pray that will be the case with ?Tape Gate?. I?m betting this will put a chip on their collective shoulders and make the feel they have something once again to prove to the naysayer?s. Before this 8 out of 10 were picking them to take it all this year now some are casting doubts on the three previous Super Bowl wins. Well from what I?ve seen of this team they?re not going to take that lying down. The players will give their answers on the field and I wouldn?t want to be LT this Sunday.

Ive been reading all the press stories while I've been waiting for my flight to leave Phily (damn the rain on the days I fly). Things arent looking good and everyone who ever wanted a reason to hates us has one. If this weekend's game was in San Diego, I'm pretty sure we would lose. I don't even want to see the signs that opposing fans will have when we are on the road. I'd rather see a Belechick suspension than a loss of draft picks. I think we'll see both though. The Commissioner is hard on punishments, which I do agree with. I'm really just sick of all the flack that I've been getting from my friends all week. I didn't cheat and I don't condone it, so stop giving me crap like I was the one holding the camera. I do think that we are not alone in this and many media reports have said other teams do it. I don't like all the players and coaches calling us out on it though: Hines Ward, LT, Favre, Paul Spicer, Rod Marinelli, Mike Tomlin, etc. Players and coaches will
continue to do what they can to get an upperhand. We got our hand caught in the cookie jar this time. I think this sucks more for the fans than anyone else. I hope we win and we win big against SD this weekend. There will be NO question of cheating from here on out as we will be under a tight watch. If we win the Super Bowl this year or get damn close, everyone will know we did it on talent and nothing else. If we self destruct from this, people will take this house fire and make it a wild fire...ugh...
