I get what he is saying, but it simply doesn’t matter.
A ring is a ring.
Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are going into the Hall of Fame, Spygate or not.
John Harbaugh went on 98 Rock in Baltimore this morning to talk some football. The topic of the Saints Bounty Scandal came up, and Harbaugh also discussed the Patriots’ legacy after Spygate, and whether cheating is worth it if you gain an advantage.
What happens, even the thing in New England, no matter whether those things had any impact on whether they won their championships or not, they got asterisks now. It’s been stained.
My thought has always been the same, if it had no impact why are you doing it in secret?
It is like not telling your wife you going to lunch with an attractive co-worker, if it doesn’t mean anything why are hiding it?
That is all irrelevant now, no one is taking back the Patriots or Saints trophies, so it is a moot point.
