Matt Walsh and Spygate
Posted by Ryan on May 13, 2008
The former New England Patriots’ scout, Matt Walsh, handed over eight more tapes related to the Spygate scandal which followed the Pats near-perfect run last season, leading to that karmic smackdown called Super Bowl XLII.
As a wounded Patriots fan, more tapes mean more pain, however I was elated to hear that no Super Bowl tapes were part of Walsh’s collection. That would have permanently tainted the Brady-era for myself, most sensible fans and foes.
I’d like to think that all of this is mostly behind us now as a dark moment in Pats history, but every single game played in New York is going to have spirited chants mocking the Pats, from easy ones like “Cheaters Never Win” to “18-1” to a host of other things I’m sure that Jets fans will concoct.
