    One of the "best" coaches ever, yet I just can't seem to find any respect for the man.

    Report: The patriots are "cheating" again.

    Two former Patriots say the team put false information about them on official injury reports.
    Brandon Spikes and Aqib Talib have both said since leaving New England in free agency that when they were on the Patriots last year, the team gave them injury designations that weren’t accurate.


    Talib was on injury reports last season with hip injuries, but after signing with the Broncos he said he never had a hip injury.
    “The Patriots have their way of reporting stuff, but I haven’t had a hip problem since Tampa,” Talib said. “The injury I had was actually a quad injury. It was reported as a hip injury, but that’s how they do things.”



    That’s not how the NFL wants teams to do things. The league office may look into the possibility that the Patriots are playing fast and loose with injury reports.

    Actually it's not. There is a reason they require all teams to report accurately, its not up to the Patriots to decide what rules they should and shouldn't abide by.

    Then why do they do it? You lie and cheat for a reason and the Pats continue to do it.

    Question) When does Bill Belichick ever lie?
    Answer) Every time he opens his mouth. He seems to derive pleasure in cheating in every possible way. He is very good at it. It is in his DNA. It is part of the Patriot way.
    Commissioner Goodell will do nothing about this. Aqib Talib and Spikes are only 2 ex-players. It would require another 8 to come forward with the same complaint to confirm whether or not New England is doing something improper. It will be interesting to see if Goodell pursues this matter or congratulates BB on making a mockery of the injury reporting process. Wouldn't want to annoy Bob Kraft and risk reducing the $44M/year income.

    If it was the Dolphins doing it the media certainly would not think it's a non-issue.

    Spikes should have filed a grievance if this were true.
