    Belichick & Patriots Fined!!

    Just came out on NFL Network:

    Belichick fined $500,000
    Patriots fined $250,000

    If the Patriots make the playoffs this season they forfeit their 1st round draft pick for the 2008 draft.

    If the Patriots don't make the playoffs this season they forfeit their 2nd and 3rd round draft picks for the 2008 draft.


    Not harsh enough IMHO. Belichick should have also been suspended..say 4 games at least.

    not really that harsh, we know 1 they are gonna make the playoffs and i think you are forgetting they have their #1 next year and the ***** #1 next year. So if they only have to forfeit theirs they will still have ours.

    Are you kidding me? Bellicheat and the Ratriots are probably laughing right now as they put the listening devices back in the opponents locker room!

    They have two 1st round picks though. This punishment is laughable IMHO!

    Agreed. Belichick should have been suspended in addition to the fine, and four games would have been about right.

    I guess in the NFL, coaches are judged differently than players for gross misconduct. :\

    Wade Wilson got 4 games for HGH even though he was taking it for medical reasons. Where are the pictures Bellicheat?? Or do you not even need any because you are a "genius"?

    Then by equal measure (and recollection of why others have been suspended), Belichick should get a vacation for the rest of the season.

    They should make the playoffs but there should be no "if" they make the playoffs they lose a 1st, they should lose both 1st rounders no matter where they finish, plus a 2nd and 3rd, and throw in a Belichick 6 game suspension.

    The fines are irrelevant and don't mean much.
    BRUUUUUUUUCE

    It means something if you fine the organization 10 million dollars like I suggested in my thread. For those that don't know in Formula 1 racing a team was just caught cheating and fined 100 MILLION DOLLARS.

    Their other pick comes from the ***** and they get to keep that. Of course it will be a higher pick than the one they lost..

    Re: Breaking News Patriots

    New England coach Bill Belichick was fined the NFL maximum of $500,000 Thursday and the Patriots were ordered to pay $250,000 for spying on an opponent's defensive signals.
    The commissioner 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.
