Open Thread - Patriots Cheating Scandal

New, comments

Alright everyone. Use this thread to discuss the Patriots cheating scandal. If you're unaware of the facts, NFL.com has a lot of info on it. Basically, the Patriots were filming the Jets coaches last week during their game, with the intent of stealing their plays. Here are a few ESPN.com polls on the subject. Our very own Pats Pulpit has been doing a great job covering the story as well.

Personally, I think the Patriots should have to forfeit their game against the Jets. That, to me, is obvious. I've heard punishments ranging from that to forfeiting draft picks.

Is it cheating? Gamesmanship? Par for the course in sports today? Are you surprised?

What should the punishment be?
