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.

Cheaters Never Win: New York Giants Win Super Bowl XLII

Posted by Mike on February 3, 2008

This New York Jets fan is proud to congratulate the New York Giants for winning Super Bowl XLII 17-14 over the New England Patriots Cheaters and removing the stain that tarnished this season and threatened to remain on the record books forever.

By stopping the Patriots, the Giants showed that although cheating can seemingly give one an upper hand, bring short-term success, and even make the guilty seem unstoppable, at the end of the day, cheaters never win. Thanks to the Giants, we can now say that the best team in football actually earned it, the 1972 Miami Dolphins do not have to share their place in history with a pack of cheaters, and those who play by the rules accomplish far more than those whose cheat ever could, even if they do get away with it on occasion.

Congratulations to the G-Men and their fans. Tonight, the Giants won on behalf of all those who came before them who wouldn’t even think of doing what the Patriots had the nerve to do. That kind of victory is even more impressive than winning a football game, even the biggest game of the year on the grandest stage of them all. Well done!
