Amazing all these people that 'aren't Patriot fans', yet continue to be adamant about 'moving on','choosing to overlook','forgetting about', bla bla blah.
Two words "Ben Johnson". He will forever be remembered as a cheat and a fraud, the Pats no exception.
So go ahead Pats fan and convince yourself nobody will remember or cares to remember.....
Man, you're still upset about Ben Johnson? You still harbor anger for him beating Carl Lewis? Good God your life must be hell. What's hilarious is that people all across this country, some who don't even watch football, are flat out pissed off that the Patriots are undefeated. Not only that, but there is this convoluted theory out there that Belichick has vats of tapes on every team over the past 5, 6, 7 years that he has studied and studied and studied and stole every tidbit of information he possibly could, even going so far as placing cameras in locker rooms to steal, cheat and undermine opposing teams ... all leading up to this year. Then, he unleashed this bevy of knowledge on the NFL this year ... except he got caught during the 2nd game of the year when the Patriots were beating the tar out of the hapless Jets. Since then, Belichick has been going on what he remembered from all those midnight hour film sessions, in which he stole huge gameday secrets from the likes of the Ravens, Colts, Bills and Chargers. That is the only possible way that this team could have won this many games this year ... that is the only explanation for their success over the past decade! You have totally solved this puzzle and I don't know why more people haven't picked up on it!

Tom Brady -- mediocre at best.
Maroney -- not explosive enough.
Seau -- old.
Bruschi -- old and had a stroke.
Vrabel -- garbage.
Moss -- overrated.
Harrison -- HGH.

Yup, this team is awful. I can see how the cheating would come in handy here. They have little to know talent and it Belichick obviously doesn't know the first thing about talent or how to coach a defense or gameplan. It's a wonder how he ever made it out of Parcells shadow. You know, they're probably going to watch game film from the last time they played the Giants and find out how to attack them ...

OH WAIT! THEY DO THAT BEFORE EVERY GAME!

If you're sore because they Bears or whoever you root for didn't make it to the playoffs and had a awful year ... go cry about it in the corner. You want to chalk up this undefeated year by the Patriots (which has the media in this lovefest with the team and Tom Brady) due to "Spygate," you are out of your mind. Seriously, go pound some sand, because your argument, just like the ones from those people that think the government caused 9/11, is just stupid. So yeah, get over it.

They're going to play this game in two weeks and for those next two weeks you are going to see and hear everything there is to know about how wonderfully greatly awesome this Patriots team is ... you're going to want to puke your guts out. And think, it's ALL because they cheated. ALL OF IT -- loser.

Actually Ben Johnson lost his medal and his 'world record'. Think about that. Same reason the Pats record is tainted.

So go ahead and put out your emotional defense. Convince yourself that people are 'sore', are jealous.

Reality I think the Pats are a dirty team. I have no respect for the life Brady lives or portrays and I think many of their fans are obnoxious.

There are players on the team I like and I respect, but your organization, media, and fans like yourself trump the positives.

I don't care that you don't like Brady's life and the fact that he dates supermodels and all that ... it has nothing to do with the fact the guy can complete 80% of his passes and throw for over 60 TDs. What he does off the field does not matter so much as to what he does on it ... it obviously has zero effect on his ability to manage an offense and read a defense.

Tainted? You want to put an asterik by their record and their potential Super Bowl title ... are you part of the asterik movement that is sweeping the nation? Let's asterik everything to ensure that people know that this feat was achieved by them doing something wrong ... which we have yet to prove ... but we suspect, therefore, put * there so we can at least vouch for something that may or may not have happened. At least we cover our butts that way and are aloud to sleep better at night with this piece of mind.

Good God man.

18-0*

*- denotes possibility that the New England Patriots cheated during their 2008 season and as a result ran the table in the NFL. No one believes that this team is fully capable of beating the teams they did with the players they have without cheating, therefore, it has been brought to the attention of Elias to add an * by their record. This should satisfy all those who feel villified by Bill Belichick and his heartless QB Tom Brady.

Hilarious. They shows just how TRULY BLIND you are. Do you really believe the NFL is cheating for the Colts? Honestly you need help if you believe in these conspiracy theories. Maybe that comes from your coach.
"I wasn't as concerned about the [artifical noise we accused them of, which again was our own fantasies] as to why my headset mysteriously didn't work."
Come on Bellicheat just say it, the Colts and the NFL doctored the headsets. It's been one big conspiracy against the Pats and everybody is in on it.
you are flat out blind and bias if you think the three pass interference calls against the pats in the colts game werent as wrong as could be. maybe you think there really was a hold on the cromartie int. at the end of the half two weeks ago that noone out of colt nation saw. its quite pathetic to think its ok for the refs to help your team along as they have for years now. afterall the colts just whine to the league at the end of every season and get some rules changed so their guys can do what they want. hey they did it after whining to the league in 03 because their receivers werent allowed free releases on the line of scrimmage and how convenient? the very next year manning broke the td record. they whine because they arent tough enough to shake defenders, get the rule changed and break records. wow, must be nice to have the league in your pocket, not just the refs.
by the way the pats have had questionable calls go against them and for them like most teams this year. the only difference is the pats never use it as an excuse, have never blamed the refs in the past for losses like you losers. you know why? ill tell you, the pats know that if the game is close enough where a ref can make or break the game, they didnt make enough plays to decide it on their own so they dont worry about the refs. they go play 60 minutes and win or lose its never about the refs.

Hey clown. The biggest difference here is that the Patriots NEVER cheated. Heck they were never even ACCUSED of cheating.

They were engaged in a LEGAL activity (filming your opponents coaches) collecting LEGAL information (FIlming play signaling) From an unauthorized location.

The rule was new for 07 having been re-written after the 2006 season...Goodell was making a statement about how seriously he took the newly re-written rule.

That being said, cheating is violating a rule to gain an unfair competitive advantage...They are ALLOWED to have the information so their was NO CHEATING.

Man I am TIRED OF BEING RIGHT!

no actually ben johnson lost his record because he used illegal performance drugs. i dont understand why you morons still dont realize that 1]the pats didnt cheat because its not illegal to tape or steal signals. 2]even if it was they never saw the tape, 3]noone has accused them of anything of the sort since quarter one of week one in game one. yet you still sit here and claim they have cheated in every game since and the whole football world, as competitive as they are, just turn a blind eye and "allow" it. if it was allowed and planned for the pats to do this, why must i ask, were the patriots "chosen" to go undefeated and not the cincinnati bengals, or the raiders, 49ers, etc?
clearly you live in a bias world and didnt realize that you dont like how brady lives the life he does but you have no problem with ray lewis standing there and allowing his friend to kill someone right in front of him but still suit up every week. you dont like the pats organization but its ok to cheer for the san diego chargers when their best defensive player is shooting steroids in order for his team to have an unfair advantage. the pats and their players are a disgrace yet its ok for pacman jones to shoot up strip clubs once a month. get real, you are focused on the wrong stuff in this world my friend. hate if you want, have a rediculous opinion but keep it to yourself.

There are no saints in NFL. Every team tries their best to win (except Dolphins and Falcons) whether it is by means of cheating or not. Only difference is that only the patriots know how to cheat as well as win! If a referee gives couple of questionable calls in their favor(like the AFC game they won against Raiders when they won superbowl or this year's regular seazon gam against Ravens) they always win. But other teams, still cant win even when refrees favor them (Ex: Colts vs patriots, regular season 2007)
