Yes. It’s true. The Cheater Patriots are now in the NFL record books for “going” 16-0 in the regular season. Of course, I put “going” in quotes, because we all know that their record really should not be even be considered a record. They were caught cheating early in the season, and should at least have that win taken away from them.
Instead, the NFL basically gave the Cheater Patriots a big “oh well” on the whole deal. Sure, they got a fine and lost a draft pick, but they should have had to give up the win against the Jets. I’m not sure why they got away with this. Lord knows that if it was the Green Bay Packers caught videotaping things in direct violation of the rules, we wouldn’t have heard the end of it all season. Nope. And there would have been much bigger sanctions.
The Patriots may be an excellent team, but the world will never know if they could have gotten this record without cheating. Because they did it. They cheated. And this “record” is forever tainted.
