more spygate ... duh duh duh!
The New York Times today says a New England Patriots player, on condition of anonymity, has acknowledged that Bill Belicheat began illicitly videotaping opposing teams' signals as far back as 2000. It's interesting that the league's executives (read: owners) don't think there's much too this, even as more revelations continue to surface. The NFL clearly wants this to go away, but this story has legs now and it looks like it's going to be around for a while. Congress and Sen. Specter should probably stay out of it, but the league, which has been printing money for years, has got to do something more to salvage its credibility. Then again, will people really stop paying attention to football over this? Not likely.
