Patriots tape calls

NFL security confiscated a video camera and its tape from a New England Patriots employee on the team's sideline during Sunday's game against the Jets in a suspected spying incident, 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, the sources said. 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. "The rule is that no video recording devices of any kind are permitted to be in use in the coaches' booth, on the field, or in the locker room during the game," the league said in a statement from spokesman Greg Aiello. "Clubs have specifically been reminded in the past that the videotaping of an opponent's offensive or defensive signals on the sidelines is prohibited. "We are looking into whether the Patriots violated this rule."

All we can say is that I hope Tom Brady doesn't follow this no taping rule in the sack either. When he suffers a Joe Theisman like injury, what better way to keep the bank rolling then to leak a video of him pounding Giselle Bundchen in each hole for $49.99 on the web. And if we are lucky, when the closing credits start rolling, she will no longer be eligible to play the 'tight end' position.
