More Videotapes Show New England Patriots Cheating

I wonder if this could ever rise to the level of stripping the Patriots of their titles? At the very least I think the official record book should have a Roger Maris style asterisk. *

Former Patriots video assistant Matt Walsh sent the NFL eight videotapes that show New England violated league rules by recording opposing coaches’ playcalling signals.

The tapes include signals by coaches of five opponents in six games from 2000-02, but don’t include video from the St. Louis Rams’ walkthrough before the 2002 Super Bowl.

The NFL said it received a letter from Michael Levy, the lawyer for Walsh, detailing the tapes that were scheduled to arrive Thursday at the league’s New York offices.

* (Although technically there was no real asterisk for Maris.)
