Report: New Developments in Patriots Taping Scandal

New year, new developments in the New England Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals taping scandal.

Per a report released by Mark Maske of the Washington Post, the NFL has reportedly cleared the Patriots and their football operations of any wrongdoing in the matter.

“The NFL has found no evidence to this point linking Coach Bill Belichick or others on the New England Patriots’ football staff to the video shot by a crew on behalf of the team showing footage of the Cincinnati Bengals’ sideline during a game last month in Cleveland, according to people familiar with the matter,” wrote Maske.

However, the team is not out of the woods yet. As the report says, the league considers this a typical game-day violation which is on the same level as the Atlanta Falcons pumping in fake crowd noise.

The whole fiasco began when a Kraft Sports Productions crew was credential to film a Patriots advanced scout in the middle of a Cleveland Browns and Bengals game this season. Bengals staff members spotted the cameraman and a video released by Fox’s Jay Glazer caught the whole encounter.

Expect a fine of a considerable amount to be handed down by the NFL.
