Bill Belichick& Patriots escape punishment after no Spygate 2 evidence found

Bill Belichick& Patriots escape punishment after no Spygate 2 evidence found”

The Patriots have admitted a three-person camera crew working on a video feature about a New England scout "inappropriately" filmed Cincinnati's sideline from the press box during the Cleveland Browns' home game against the Bengals game in Week 14.

With that said, people who are familiar with the matter say there's a chance the Patriots could be hit with another sizeable fine and dinged another draft pick when the final findings of the investigation are submitted to Roger Goodell in the coming weeks.

Belichick has vehemently denied having any involvement in the filming.

In this case, the Patriots have admitted violating National Football League video policy during the Bengals-Browns game on December 8 in Cleveland. You're not allowed to film a team's sideline and fans were outraged by the Patriots' alleged brazen attempts at getting ahead of the competition.

Teams were recently fined between $ 150,000 and $ 350,000 for offenses that included playing fake crowd noise in the stadium during a game (Atlanta Falcons), using a walkie-talkie when the communications system failed (New York Giants), violating the rules on coach-to-helmet gaming headphones (Baltimore Ravens) and an official team of in-game text coaches (Cleveland Browns). Mondillo said he's an 18-year veteran of video producing. The Patriots were involved in a similar Spygate scandal back in 2008 and reports suggest they might escape this time out with a minor punishment.

'I had no intention to provide footage to football operations, I did not provide any footage, and I was never asked to do so, ' Mondillo said in the statement. In 2007, the National Football League fined Belichick $ 500,000 and the Patriots $ 250,000 after the team was caught suppressing signals from the New York Jets defensive coaches in the incident known as Spygate. Quarterback Tom Brady was suspended for four games, and the team was fined $1 million and docked another first-round draft pick. It showed a video monitor aimed at the Bengals' sideline and contained audio of dialogue between a Patriots videographer and a Bengals security staffer.
