    "It's not their first time," a member of the committee, who did not wish to be identified, said.

    Even their players are delusional!

    New England cornerback Ellis Hobbs said he was unaware of the controversy, and unwilling to believe his team had cheated.

    "We put too many hours in as individuals and a team to have to go out and cheat," he said. "If it's true, obviously, we're in the wrong. But I'm standing behind my team, my coaches. I don't think we do that stuff."

    Tomlinson not surprised to hear Patriots accused of spying

    By RANDY COVITZ
    The Kansas City Star

    SAN DIEGO | Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson was not surprised to hear reports that the New England Patriots were suspected of having cameras spy on Jets coaches in Sunday’s season opener.

    “I think the Patriots actually live by the saying, ‘If you’re not treating, you’re not trying,’ ” a chucking Tomlinson said Monday. “They live off that statement. Nothing surprises me really.

    “You keep hearing the different stories about stuff that they do.”


    The Chargers will visit New England on Sunday night in a rematch of last January’s playoff game in which Tomlinson criticized Patriots coach Bill Belichick for allowing his players to dance and romp on the field in celebration of their 24-21 victory at San Diego.

    “They showed no class at all . . . and maybe it comes from the head coach,” Tomlinson said after the game.

    According to an ESPN report, NFL security confiscated a video camera and its tape from a Patriots employee on the team’s sideline during Sunday’s victory over the Jets in a suspected spying incident.

    The camera and its tape were placed in a sealed box and forwarded to the league office for investigation, the sources said.

    The Patriots’ cameraman was suspected of aiming his camera at the Jets’ defensive coaches who were sending signals to their unit on the field, ESPN reported. The league also is investigating some radio frequency issues that occurred during the game.

    The league’s competition committee could conduct a conference call about the incident, which violates NFL policy, and ultimately recommend a penalty that could cost the Patriots a future draft pick or picks if it verifies that the team was spying on the Jets.

    Green Bay Packers president Bob Harlan confirmed a similar incident that occurred when the Patriots played at Lambeau Field last Nov. 19. The same cameraman who was questioned by NFL security on Sunday was also the one whom the Packers removed from the sideline and escorted from the field during their 2006 game, according to Packers security official Doug Collins.

    Officials from the league and both teams declined comment on Monday.

    •••

    The Chargers’ playoff loss to New England led to the firing of coach Marty Schottenheimer despite a 14-2 record last season.

    Tomlinson said he spoke with Schottenheimer by phone a day or two before the Chargers’ opened the regular season with a 14-3 win over Chicago.

    “He seemed to be very proud of us,” Tomlinson said. “He had seen all the preseason games, and we looked good, and he was going to watch Sunday’s game, and he was going to follow us.

    “He wanted to make sure I told all the guys hello, and he seemed very happy.”

    Though Schottenheimer was replaced by Norv Turner, Tomlinson said Schottenheimer’s influence can still be felt.

    “Marty’s imprint is still on this team,” said Tomlinson. “We all know that, even though there is a different captain driving the ship.

    “It’s like when Tony Dungy was with the Bucs. He got fired, and (Jon) Gruden comes in and they win the Super Bowl. But Dungy’s imprint was on that team, and it’s a similar situation here.”

    The Pats are getting to the point where, if you aren't a fan of them, you hate their guts.

    Between this, Brady's whining, Belichick's crazy-old-man act, Moss, etc, what the hell is there to like?

    Can we divide our hate into teams that are a threat and teams that are not?


    Threat
    Pats
    Broncos

    Non-Threat
    Raiders
    Chiefs
    Jets
