Rich Brooks thinks Fulmer is another Bill Belichick

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on September 16, 2008

For the most part I admire Rich Brooks. He took a hapless bunch of losers and transformed them into the 7-5 Music City Bowl powerhouse that they are now. (At least until SEC play starts)

That’s why I’m shocked to find out that he actually accuses Tennessee of stealing signals from last year’s game.  From KNS

Chip Cosby of the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that this isn’t the first time that Kentucky has felt like they’ve been spied on. Last year during Kentucky‘s 54-50 four overtime loss to Tennessee, towels were placed around members of the staff in order to cover up signals.

“They were either getting them from the field or the press box,” Brooks said of MTSU. “They might have gotten some help from Tennessee. Tennessee had them last year.”

Let’s examine that comment. First why would we want to help MTSU defeat a SEC team? That wouldn’t be good for the conference. Second if you’re using the same signals from last year, that you believe to have been “stolen”, and you failed to change them, then that makes you one hell of an idiot. So change your signals, genius.

I wonder if we have been stealing signals for the past 27 years. I mean come on we all know there’s a vast conspiracy to keep Kentucky football down.

Sure Tennessee has dropped as a program but not down to THAT level. Maybe Brooks should realize with losses to teams like South Carolina, Florida, Miss State & Georgia, that his signals didn’t work so why would we need them? After all we won those games with the exception of Florida.

Then again last year’s game went into 4 overtimes and KenSucky hung 50 on us, maybe we needed the Cap’n Crunch decoder ring to decipher just what signals we supposedly had. Either way Kentucky will never be a football school. When people see the “KY” on their helmets they tend to think of lubricant. And of course after 27 years of being ass raped by Tennessee in football Rick Brooks maybe beginning to think the same.

Here We go it’s SpyGate Part Deux: The Governments Revenge (starring Jack Nicholson as coach Bill Belichick)

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on May 15, 2008

All I wanted for my birthday was SpyGate to end however much like Cher’s insufferable singing career SpyGate refuses to die thanks to an “incensed” Philadelphia Eagles fan in Congress. Now it’s time to get the government involved. Oh yay…joy.

Sen. Arlen Specter on Wednesday called for an independent investigation of the New England Patriots’ taping of opposing coaches’ signals, setting up another hearing much like the high-profile Mitchell report on performance-enhancing drugs in baseball but with less comedy unless they can tie in Roger Clemens.

“I have documented the strong factual case that a NFL investigation was neither objective nor adequate,” Specter said on Wednesday evening. “If the commissioner doesn’t move for an independent investigation, then there will be a permanent black mark on the NFL and the Patriots’ record will be historically tainted. Depending on the public reaction, I may ask the Senate Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on the NFL antitrust exemption.”

This guy is now just embarrassing himself. He needs to up his credibility by moving on to JFK assassination conspiracies and re-opening the investigation at Roswell.

At an earlier news conference in the Capitol, Specter put it bluntly:

“What is necessary is an objective investigation. And this one has not been objective.”

This is now officially out of control. Apparently Specter needs a $5000/hr hooker to occupy some of his time because with the way he is going at this SpyGate nonsense he obviously has too much time on his hands.

The Pennsylvania Republican is unforgiving of his criticism of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, saying that Goodell has made “ridiculous” assertions that wouldn’t fly “in kindergarten.” The Senator said Goodell was caught in an “apparent conflict of interest” because the NFL doesn’t want the public to lose confidence in the league’s integrity. Quite honestly he might be right…but still…damn.

“They are enormous role models for everybody,” Specter said. “If you can cheat in the NFL, you can cheat in college, you can cheat in high school, you can cheat on your grade-school math test. There’s no limit as to what you can do. I think they owe the public a lot more candor and a lot more credibility.”

Goodell essentially declared an end to Spygate after a 3½-hour meeting in New York on Tuesday morning with former New England video assistant Matt Walsh. Walsh supplied the league with videotapes of coaches’ signals made by the Patriots but offered no new significant revelations about the cheating scandal that has threatened to taint the team’s three Super Bowl titles.

Goodell said afterward that the information from the interview with Walsh “was consistent with what we disciplined the Patriots for last fall,” when the commissioner docked the team a 2008 first-round draft pick (which for some reason they still had) and fined coach Bill Belichick $500,000 and the team $250,000.

But Specter held his own three-hour meeting with Walsh in Washington on Tuesday. He said Walsh detailed how the Patriots used videotaped signals to their advantage: An offensive player would memorize the signals, watch for them on the sideline and pass them on to assistant coach Charlie Weis, who would then inform quarterback Tom Brady.

“And they had some obviously good results,” Specter said.

The NFL issued a response through spokesman Gregg Aiello.

“We respectfully disagree with Senator Specter’s characterization of the investigation conducted by our office. We are following up after yesterday’s meeting with Matt Walsh,” he said.

Patriots spokesman Stacey James said the team had no comment on Specter’s remarks.

Wednesday, the Boston Herald issued a “My Bad” for a story that said the Patriots videotaped a St. Louis Rams walkthrough before the 2002 Super Bowl.

In the apology, published in the newspaper’s Wednesday edition and posted on its Web site, the Herald said the story was based on sources “it believed to be credible.”

“We now know that this report was false and that no tape of the walk-through ever existed,” the paper wrote.

“We should not have published the allegation in the absence of firmer verification. The Boston Herald regrets the damage done to the team by publication of the allegation and sincerely apologizes to its readers and to the New England Patriots’ owners, players, employees and fans for our error,” it said.

However in an interview with HBO scheduled to air Friday night on “Real Sports with Major Tool Bryant Gumbel,” Walsh dismissed Belichick’s attempts to minimize the impact of the taping.

“If it was of little or no importance, I imagine they wouldn’t have continued to do it, and probably not taken the chances of going down onto the field in Pittsburgh or shooting from other teams’ stadiums the way we did,” Walsh said.

Walsh told HBO that his superiors coached him on how to evade NFL rules limiting the number of camera operators per team to two, and that team officials instructed him on ways to avoid detection.

Now correct me if I’m wrong but if Belichick thought he was operating within the rules then why would Walsh need to “avoid detection?”

“When I was doing it, I understood what we were doing to be wrong,” Walsh said. “We went to great lengths to keep from being caught. Just saying that the rules were misinterpreted isn’t enough of an apology or a reasoning for what was done. …

“Coach Belichick’s explanation for having misinterpreted the rules, to me, that really didn’t sound like taking responsibility for what we had done, especially considering the great lengths that we had gone through to hide what we were doing.”

I think a really simple solution to all of video taping crap is to not allow any teams to tape a game. Instead have the NFL tape the game from all angles and then forward a copy of each tape to each team. That way everybody is seeing the same thing. I don’t know just a thought…

This investigation will go away the minute that Comcast gets The NFL Network for free.

And now the devil’s advocate side:

It’s not over until the fans say it’s over. Goodell ran a cover-up. The fact that the Patriots’ punishment was harsher than anything that came before is a testament to how lax the league had been before. Caught with its pants down, they had to do something that “looked” tough. But $250K is nothing to the Pats organization. $500K is not a serious dent to Belichick – and his arrogance after the fact proves it. And the first round draft pick? Come on. Second to last pick in the first round, one they likely would have traded down in order to get a couple of players who may or may not have been relevant to their future. That’s a pretty easy punishment.

Goodell knew he couldn’t push harder than that, or else he’d be admitting that his sport was tarnished, that the great dynasty of our time had been cheating its way to wins and possibly to titles. He had to punish them in an unsatisfying way in order to make it seem like it was something, but not nearly as bad as it was.

Also I would like to know why Goodell had the original tapes destroyed…..that makes absolutely no sense. I am ready to get over this but the sad thing is we never will know how much all of this cheating actually helped the Patriots…..maybe it won them super bowls, maybe it made little difference. I have a feeling we will never know, which sucks. I know this much….Goodell did/does not want the past results of his league to be put into jeopardy. That is not good for business. And that’s all this is…. a business.

It Will be the Best Birthday Present Ever!!!

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on April 24, 2008

If there’s one thing I hate it’s the acknowledgment of my birthday. I despise getting older & it’s usually a pretty depressing day all around.

However this year promises to be different because on May 13th, the day God cursed the earth with the birth of this Êv¡£ Genius, a chapter in another so-called evil genius’s life will finally be coming to a close.

Matt Walsh will get his day with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. What he has to offer is anyone’s guess.

The former Patriots assistant will meet with Goodell on May 13 about New England’s videotaping of opposing teams. It took a couple of months (81 days to be exact), but the league reached an agreement with Walsh on Wednesday.

“Commissioner Goodell will meet with Mr. Walsh … on May 13, the earliest date that Mr. Walsh, who lives in Hawaii, will be available on the East Coast,” the NFL statement said. “The agreement also requires Mr. Walsh to return any tapes and other items in his possession that belong to the Patriots. In return, the NFL and the Patriots have promised not to sue Mr. Walsh. They also will indemnify him for any expenses, including legal fees that he incurs in connection with the interview.”

Goodell vs spygate. Good rivalry but not as good as Marty McFly v Biff Tennen

During Super Bowl week, and nearly five months after the Patriots were sanctioned for illegal taping of the New York Jets in the season opener — a $500,000 fine for coach Bill Belichick, a $250,000 fine for the organization, and the loss of a first-round draft pick on Saturday — there were reports of possible other videotaping by the Patriots. Those reports centered on Walsh, who shot videos for the Patriots during his six-year stint with the organization before being canned.

“Today, Mr. Walsh and the National Football League reached an agreement under which the NFL will provide legal indemnification and a release of claims against Mr. Walsh relating to his employment by the Patriots and the Patriots’ videotaping operations,” said Walsh’s lawyer, Michael Levy of McKee Nelson LLP. “I am pleased that we now have an agreement that provides Mr. Walsh with appropriate legal protections. Mr. Walsh is looking forward to providing the NFL with the materials he has and telling the NFL what he knows.”

So what might Walsh have and what does he know? The Patriots say he has nothing. However if the evidence is incriminating, Belichick needs to be banned from football and the Rams, Eagles and Panthers need to be crowned champs. IF he has nothing.. it needs to be dropped and NO MORE said about it.

“The New England Patriots are pleased to learn that Matt Walsh is finally willing to come forward to meet with the NFL,” the team said in a statement. “We are eagerly anticipating his honest disclosures to commissioner Goodell next month and the return of all the materials he took during his time of employment. We fully expect this meeting to conclude the league’s investigation into a damaging and false allegation that was originally levied against the team on the day before this year’s Super Bowl.”

The allegation was that New England videotaped the St. Louis Rams’ walkthrough on the day before the 2002 Super Bowl. Although Belichick admitted to Goodell during the Spygate investigation that his team often taped opposing coaches’ signals during games, he adamantly has denied anything about that Super Bowl.

“I’ve never seen a tape of another team’s practice. Ever!” Belichick said at last month’s NFL owners meetings. “Certainly not that one. I think they’ve addressed everything they possibly can address. I’ve addressed so many questions so many times from so many people I don’t know what else the league could ask.”

In their statement Wednesday, the Patriots reiterated that stand:

“At all times, we cooperated fully with the league’s investigation and stand by our initial public statement from Saturday, Feb. 2, 2008: The suggestion that the New England Patriots recorded the St. Louis Rams’ walkthrough on the day before Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002 is absolutely false.”

The agreement with Walsh will allow him to “share with the NFL information about activities occurring during his employment with the club from 1997-2003,” the league said.

Walsh also will be barred from using any material related to Spygate for commercial purposes “or in any manner that could reasonably be expected to be disparaging to the NFL” or the Patriots.

He also will not be allowed to speak with any third parties before meeting with Goodell.

Belichick has said the videotaping was a misinterpretation of the rule. He told Goodell he was handing over all the tapes in September, and Goodell destroyed them. So if Walsh has any evidence, it could be quite damaging to Belichick and the Patriots.

“It is important to note that there has never been a confidentiality agreement restricting Matt Walsh, and no legal protections were ever necessary for him to speak to the NFL, to media outlets or to anyone else regarding his employment with the Patriots,” the team’s statement said. “Walsh has been granted a significant number of privileges through this agreement, none of which the Patriots or the NFL were obligated to give.”

The agreement requires Walsh to hand over all pertinent material by May 8.

Why do they have to wait until May 13th for the meeting? I know Goodell has a lot on his plate with the draft coming up and other preparations for the season, but why not meet with Specter first? Oh, because this has absolutely nothing to do with Specter, or the Government, or any law violation.

You know Specter lost a nut when he heard this. Either way, chances are Walsh has nothing more than tapes of defensive signals…more of the same.

The story has been kept alive by Sen. Arlen Specter, the Republican leader of the Senate Judiciary Committee who has criticized the league’s investigation — specifically the destruction of notes and six tapes turned over by the Patriots from the 2006 season and 2007 preseason. After initially describing the illegal taping as very limited, Goodell later revealed that Belichick had admitted following the same taping practices since he took over the Patriots in 2000.

“I’m glad to see it,” Specter told ESPN.com. “They worked a long time on it and they got it done. I think it is a good thing.”

When asked if he wanted to see the materials, Specter said, “I sure do,” adding that he would ask the league to allow him access to whatever videotapes and notes Walsh turns over.

“To whatever extent the league’s approval is necessary, I will ask them for it in a formal way,” Specter said.

Specter will not be part of the NFL’s interview of Walsh but confirmed he expected to be meeting with Walsh in Washington also on May 13.

As for what he wants to learn from Walsh in their conversation, Specter said:

“I want to know everything. I would begin chronologically. When did the first taping occur? Who directed it? And who knew about it? Who participated in it, and what use was made of it? And what effect did it have on the game, as best he could tell? Was there ever any disagreement about using it?”

The only thing I hope for is if there is anything to Walsh and all this hoopla and if the Pats are found to have been using some unruly tactics that gave them an advantage, punish them. If they are allowed keep their Super Bowl titles then at least make them have to go back to the old uniforms. That would be justice for me.

The Arrogance of the Patriots and Spy Gate are much like Herpes, Neither Will Go Away Easily

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on February 5, 2008

I have a like, love and hate relationship with Boston professional sports teams. I like the Celtics, I love the Red Sox and I hate the Patriots. I always have and most likely I always will.

I seriously doubt any of the New Englanders that were walking around in a stupor yesterday morning mumbling incoherently “Why us why now?” stopped to seriously see how arrogant this team has been leading to their colossal defeat.

While the team was practicing the owners were applying for the trademarks to “19-0″ and “19-0 The Perfect Season,” and possibly other winning words to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Kraft Macaroni & Cheese better sell like a motherfucker to brighten the spirits of the team owners.

The Boston Globe was pre-selling a book via Amazon and other outlets titled “19-0: The Historic Championship Season of New England’s Unbeatable Patriots.” It has since been pulled from Amazon.

Tom Brady laughed at the notion of his team only scoring 17 points, I wonder if he was laughing Sunday night knowing they scored less than that.

Is that arrogant enough? But honestly the real arrogance committed by the Patriots was the belief that “Spy Gate” was over and done with. Imagine the shock Belichick must have felt when the Boston Herald reported they have a source about a certain taping of the final walk though the Rams did before they faced the Patriots in 2002.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will reopen an investigation into the Patriots video practices if new evidence supports it, a league spokesman said yesterday prior to the team’s 17-14 Super Bowl loss to the Giants.

Of course Goodell will after all when the senate calls you better run. I’m not saying that the Patriots did or didn’t tape the walk through, however I will say that so far it’s been a piss poor investigation by the NFL.

Imagine if the police asked a drug dealer to turn over all his dope without actually searching for it or questioning known associates. The NFL supposedly confiscated all the video they could find at the team’s headquarters without thinking that maybe just maybe there was more video that was not on the site. Maybe if they did some asking or checking into past Patriots employees they wouldn’t be so embarrassed as they are now.

While it’s true the NFL police might not have found anything worthy as the latest allegations reveal, they could at least say it was investigated at the time.

The Herald reported Saturday that a Patriots employee filmed the Rams’ final walkthrough prior to Super Bowl XXXVI, though it’s unclear if they were instructed to shoot the video, or if the coaches used the information. The Pats deny recording the walkthrough and the league said it didn’t find any evidence of wrongdoing when it investigated the rumor in the fall, in part because the team told them it wasn’t true.

“People are implying there was some type of cover-up, where I think it was exactly the opposite,” Goodell said. “We were the ones who brought these facts to light. We were the ones who took the unprecedented discipline to send a very strong message to the people that we don’t violate the rules. Every team on a level playing field, I think that’s what we want.”

In a sense I agree with Goodell, except when he states “we were the ones who brought these facts to light”, because in reality it was the press that shed light on this. And I still think the punishment was a joke, and if and I really mean “if” these latest allegations prove to be true then the joke will be on you Goodell and you alone.

Bill Belichick & Joe Buck: Assholes Of A Feather

Posted by Joel on February 3, 2008

e783e94cf8c4027ca4c8ed7e5892515d-getty-77331464bl132_super_bowl_xl1.jpg

This is Bill Belichick, walking off the field with 2 seconds left in the game. Yeah, he was completely outcoached and outclassed for this Super Bowl. But he walked off the field with 2 seconds left in the game. Anyone else see anything wrong with this???

58189701.jpeg

This is Joe Buck. Now a few years ago, this sack o’ nuts cried and moaned like a fat chick that just got dumped for the head cheerleader when Randy Moss walked off the field with a few seconds left in a game featuring the Minnesota Vikings vs. Washington Redskins. You would have thought Randy Moss pulled his pants down and mooned the crowd at FedEx Field in DC.

Speaking of pulling his pants down, when Randy Moss mockingly mooned the Green Bay crowd some time later, Joe Buck went gonzo. Joe Buck cried like someone had just put a firecracker up his cat’s rectum.

What’s my point??? Joe Buck didn’t call out his boy Belichick for doing what Randy Moss did just a few years ago. Where was the public outcry against Hoodie like there was when Moss walked out early??? I hate Joe Buck and I should have just muted the TV and listened to the silky smooth back biting voice of Marv Albert on Westwood One Radio. Joe Buck, you ain’t no Jack Buck. Not even close. You just gotta have pics of Uncle Rupert Murdoch naked or something in order for you to keep your job.

As for the game, I never would have thought Eli Manning would win a Super Bowl. Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo should be locked up with a long term deal NOW!!! Wow…

Two Brothers, Two Different Teams, Two Years, Two Separate Super Bowl Wins!

Rachelle Washington Is Clearly A Dolphins Fan

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on January 18, 2008

I’m sure everyone knows about the temporary restraining order was issued Monday against Randy Moss. The (alleged) victim is Rachelle Washington who claims Moss committed “battery causing serious injury” to her at her Florida home on Jan. 6, as well as refused to allow her to seek medical treatment. Moss claims they have been friends for 11 years and that she asked for “six figures” for what he said was an accident in which she was hurt.

Moss has been quick to deny the allegations and the New England Patriots have been quick to defend Moss. Granted I’ll give Moss credit, he’s a great athlete and he’s kept his nose clean this season both on and off the field. Here’s what Moss said of the situation.

“I want to make something clear, in my whole entire life of living 30 years, I’ve never put my hand on one woman, physically or in an angry manner.”

“This is a negative,” he said of the latest allegation, “a black cloud hanging over my head, and that’s something that I did not want coming into the season. … Everything I tried to do from getting here early, to make sure I eat the right food, all the way to practicing and playing, I wanted all of that to be A-plus.

“Everything’s been positive, so why would I bring something negative on. As much as I care and love the game of football and love my teammates, I would never put myself or them in a situation of something like this.”

Just one problem with those statements, he bumped a female traffic control officer with his car in 2002. Technically that isn’t laying a hand on a woman, instead he used his Lexus.

Let’s not forget Moss’s other past “mistakes”.

With the Vikings, he was criticized by quarterback Daunte Culpepper and others for leaving the field with 2 seconds left in a regular-season loss to Washington.

He verbally abused corporate sponsors on a team bus in 2001 and squirted an official with a water bottle in 1999. And who can for the infamous “mooning” incident.

So it’s clear that in the past Moss has placed himself in situation that hurt his teammates.

Yesterday the (alleged) victim Rachelle Washington spoke out and basically said “Yo, don’t be disrespecting Rachelle Washington!”

A statement from her attorney, David McGill, says “she refuses to be further disrespected by him.”

“Ms. Washington has been unfairly characterized as someone simply seeking financial gain. In fact, it was Mr. Moss’ representatives who first contacted our office to offer a ‘six figure’ settlement with hopes of not having this incident become public record,” the statement reads.

“It has never been her intention to hurt Mr. Moss in any way. However, she has suffered mental and physical harm as a result of his actions. She simply wants him to take responsibility for what he has done. As a battery victim, she has shown great strength throughout this entire ordeal,” the statement reads.

“We have heard Mr. Moss’ statement regarding the incident. He has acknowledged that he was at Ms. Washington‘s Florida residence and that he was ‘guilty’ of an ‘accident’ which occurred.

“However, Mr. Moss fails to mention how his reckless and degrading conduct rendered Ms. Washington unable to drive her vehicle to seek medical attention. As the evidence will show, there is serious doubt that Mr. Moss is capable of recalling with clarity the exact details of what transpired that evening. As Mr. Moss has previously stated, “Do your homework and check his resume,” the statement reads.

A hearing to on whether to issue a permanent restraining order is set for Jan. 28, just six days before the super bowl. Notice no criminal charges have been filed. I find that very important. It’s obvious to me that alleged victim is a disgruntled Dolphins fan (can you blame them look at their season) and this was probably concocted by Don Shula.

I’m not sure who to believe at this point. I just hope it’s on Court TV, but I’m willing to bet former Dolphin players will be in attendance.

Piling on Notre Dame

Posted by Joel on December 31, 2007

Ah yes, one of my favorite teams reside in South Bend, Indiana. God’s chosen team is the University of Notre Dame. How do I know this??? Because the school has a huge painting of Jesus on the library directly behind the football stadium, so that He may see his favorite team play. It warms the heart when the school’s band plays the fight song. The school’s list of famous alums spans the entire spectrum of life, from Regis Philbin to Condoleeza Rice…

Screw this: NOTRE DAME SUCKS!!! Now where do I begin??? Let’s start with the mascot. The “Fightin’ Irish”. To symbolize the “spirit” of the fight, the school adopted a leprechaun to represent it. So let me get this straight: A mythical creature which obviously does not represent any Christian values is the symbol of a Catholic school. Do I just look at things in a weird way, because while I am no biblical scholar, I don’t recall any leprechauns in the word of God. When Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den, there weren’t any “fighting leprechauns” fending off dangerous felines. Can we say hypocrisy???

Now let’s talk about the overrated football program. This football program has been living off of championships won years ago. Lou Holtz won a title, which must have been divine intervention, but what have they done since??? The fact remains that the school’s boosters is the only reason that the school is even relevant today. Every year, the school is preseason top 25, simply because it is Notre Dame. Guess where the school will be ranked pre-season next year??? I am willing to bet a #4 combo from McDonald’s that Notre Dame will be there, despite only winning 3 games this year.

Now, this I know will stir the pot of Irish fans, but screw it: The Ty Willingham thing was just wrong. Now, before I get a bunch of hate from “Irish fans”, which “scares” me, I am not talking from a racial perspective. But every coach that they have had was given 5 years. Willingham wasn’t. True, he won early, but to let him go after a “subpar” year for Notre Dame was wrong. Even Gerry Faust got 5 years, but because your big money boosters gave Kevin White some heat, he caved under the pressure. So you went out and got Fat Boy, Charlie Weis.

Oh, who can forget the “Great Architect” of the Patriots offense during the Super Bowl years. The only problem was that Belichick wasn’t coming with him. So you won early, getting 2 BCS Bowl bids that you did not deserve. Let’s revisit those 2 Bowl games:

*Fiesta Bowl-Ohio State blew you out, just like Brent Musburger gave “courageous” Brady Quinn and his sister Laura virtual blowjobs on the air…

*Sugar Bowl-LSU completely dominated you as soon as they stepped off of the bus. It wasn’t even close. Does this look familiar???

Georgia Head Coach is Leary of Saban and What Spy Tactics He Learned Under Belichick.

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on September 19, 2007

My best friend and Georgia fan John will most likely kill me for this.

Leader of the Third Rich, Mark Richt, is worried about the spy tactics that might be employed by Nick Satan Saban, and who can blame him? After all Saban did coach under Bill Belichick, master NFL spy.

“Georgia’s Mark Richt has closed practice to the media for the first time in his seven years as a head coach as the No. 22 Bulldogs prepare for Saturday’s game at No. 16 Alabama.

Claude Felton, Georgia’s senior associate athletics director for external affairs, said Richt closed the practices because the coach “wanted to have a week of practice with no distractions and for his players to be able to focus on the field and their practice responsibilities.”

“It’s the Belichick rule,” the Georgia official said. “We’ve been skunked in the past. We know it because of the way some teams have reacted to our [offensive] plays in a few games. We’re trying to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”

The Belichick rule, that’s gold, however I wouldn’t blame spying in every instance concerning the offense. The best friend I mentioned at the beginning of the post says you’re to predictable at times, and you are. He also likes midget porn and says Barry Steroid Bonds is clean, so I know he doesn’t always know what he’s talking about. I mean everyone knows Bonds is clean, but the midget porn…it’s doesn’t rock my world.

“Alabama coach Nick Saban, in his first season coaching the Crimson Tide, worked four seasons as Belichick’s defensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns from 1991-94.

Ironically, Saban’s team was accused of stealing the Patriots’ signals last season when he was coach of the Miami Dolphins, but the NFL found no evidence of wrongdoing.

“We were never accused of that, that I’m aware of, and we never did it,” Saban said Monday, during his weekly news conference in Tuscaloosa, Ala. “We didn’t have a video camera or tapes. We never got anybody’s signals. We had someone watching their signals, but we were never smart enough [to do it].”

Considering your coaching record in the NFL, I’m inclined to believe that. Wow, the power of Saban must be infecting my mind, let me rephrase. Nick, for once I agree with you, but you’re still Satan and an asshole. There that’s better. Oddly though in another article about the same topic Furor Richt was quoting as saying:

“Things have changed in the last few years. It’s not like it used to be. It’s so easy for information to travel so fast,” Richt said. “Maybe if we had an indoor facility where no one was walking around or looking in the window, we would all feel better. The reality is: What we do is big. People care. Winning and losing has a profound effect on people’s careers.”

Oh God there he goes whining about not having an indoor facility again. I’m sure Georgia fans remember Furor Richt whining sometime last August about wanting better facilities but then pulled a Saban on his comments. Notice how he slipped that one in there, it was almost subliminal.

“If it were up to me and I could get away with it, I would just as soon close it down (permanently),” Richt said. “There’s not much that decides between winning and losing. A lot of times, it’s one play. If the other team gets a one-play advantage, it could cost you.”

I bet an indoor practice field, like the one Tennessee has would help huh? :)

“I hear people say in the business world sometimes, ‘We’re always trying to create a winning edge,”‘ Saban said. “In sports, we’d all like to try to do that. But we all have to be careful that we always do that with full respect for the rules.”

says the man who was taught by the master spy Bill Belichick, then excused by him last year. Oh yeah he’s still an asshole.

Richt said he’s more concerned about information getting out over the Internet than he is about another school sending someone to Athens on a spying mission. It might be something as innocuous as a student assistant telling a friend about a particular play. The next thing you know, the friend has posted the info on a MySpace page.

And don’t forget the countless fan blogs that have popped up in recent years.

“When you’re out there practicing, doing whatever it is you’re doing, it wouldn’t take a veteran coach to understand what’s happening,” Richt said. “You wonder who might see it and who say something about it. It might even be your own people.”

I hate Myspace, and fan blogs suck, except mine. OK, mine sucks to. The point is you are sounding a little paranoid, and you know who else was paranoid don’t you? That’s right Hitler! There I made my point. However come this Saturday night I will be pulling for the Third Richt Georgia Bulldogs. I hope they beat the hell out of Alabama.

Go Dawgs!!!!

So I profess on this day 9/19/07.

Goodell Tells Bill Belichick He Has to be the Dumbest Spy Since ‘Spies Like Us” was Released & Levels the Punishment

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on September 14, 2007

When I first heard the news about Patriots coach Bill Rosenberg Belichick being a spy, I admittedly couldn’t believe it, I was wrong. See? there I said it…errr typed it, so to speak. It seems Bill Belichick was breaking NFL league rules and was spying on opposing defenses. Yesterday he said he was sorry, but also showed that he isn’t the brilliant coach everyone thought he was.

“Patriots coach Bill Belichick apologized twice yesterday – first to his players in a morning meeting and then via a written statement – as he awaits a ruling from commissioner Roger Goodell on the videotape incident that took place in Sunday’s game against the Jets at Giants Stadium.

But what exactly he was apologizing for is unclear.

“Earlier this week, I spoke with Commissioner Goodell about a videotaping procedure during last Sunday’s game and my interpretation of the rules,” Belichick said in the statement. “At this point, we have not been notified of the league’s ruling. Although it remains a league matter, I want to apologize to everyone who has been affected, most of all ownership, staff, and players. Following the league’s decision, I will have further comment.”

OK, first things first. I feel an apology to the fans are in order. I’m not a Patriots fan, never have been. I’m surprised I’m still a Red Sox fan, after my ex cheated on me with some dude from Boston. She eventually moved up there. From what I heard he cheated on her later…must be something in the water there. As I was saying the fans deserve an apology.

Now here comes the fun stuff:

The league’s game operations manual states that “no video recording devices of any kind are permitted to be in use in the coaches’ booth, on the field, or in the locker room during the game.” Teams are allowed to record games, but the manual also states that “all video shooting locations must be enclosed on all sides with a roof overhead.”

In addition, Ray Anderson, the league’s head of football operations, sent a memo to head coaches and general managers Sept. 6, 2006, that read: “Videotaping of any type, including but not limited to taping of an opponent’s offensive or defensive signals, is prohibited on the sidelines, in the coaches’ booth, in the locker room, or at any other locations accessible to club staff members during the game.”

The rule is in place to prevent teams from gaining a competitive advantage by learning an opponent’s signals. For example, a videotape of an assistant coach’s hand signals could be matched with the overhead photos of each play that are available to teams during a game. In other words, a quarterback might know exactly what to expect from a defense (such as if a blitz is called).

Coach just how did you “interpret” the rules outside of that? It’s pretty damn clear. I’m not a football coach, but I clearly can comprehend what I read. Quit embarrassing yourself, you’re only making it worse.

I e-mailed sheriff Goodell my suggestions as to what the punishment for Bill Rosenberg Belichick should be, it seems he didn’t listen to my advice. Therefore, I’m going back to ripping on him. Psshh I would rip him even if he did listen to my advice, who am I kidding?

“New England coach Bill Belichick was fined the NFL maximum of $500,000 Thursday and the Patriots were ordered to pay $250,000 for videotaping an opponent’s offensive and defensive signals.

Commissioner Roger Goodell also ordered the team to give up next year’s first-round draft choice if it reaches the playoffs and second- and third-round picks if it doesn’t.

“This episode represents a calculated and deliberate attempt to avoid longstanding rules designed to encourage fair play and promote honest competition on the playing field,” Goodell said in a letter to the Patriots.”

Sheriff Goodell, the public has stood by you while you punished Pac Man Jones, even though he has yet to be convicted of anything and while you no commented though the Vick scandal. Everyone believes you’re a tough man and not some pansy girlie man, like my this one guy I work with. So “man up G” the Patriots should be punished as an organization this I agree with, but Bill Rosenberg Belichick and any of his coaching staff that knew what was happening should be punished more severely, by banning them from the league all together. Monetary fines in a situation like this are a joke. The thought they will lose a first round draft pick if they don’t make the playoffs, or lose the second & third picks if they do make the playoffs, is utterly ridicules This is a question of ethics and integrity. The NFL has no place for cheaters. You could have sent a strong message, there was your chance. Now more than ever people will be questioning the integrity of the league moving forward. This was your first real test Sheriff Goodell, going against something and someone that isn’t an average thug, and you failed.

So I profess on this day 9/14/07.
