Here He Comes

Wisconsin (INEPT) - Here he comes. None other than Matt Walsh. And he will be telling all in a tell-all we'd all like to be told about. From ESPN:
Former New England Patriots video assistant Matt Walsh, who has told ESPN.com he has potentially damaging information about the team's taping practices, reached an agreement Wednesday to meet with league officials and turn over any videotapes he might have to support his allegations.

What will he say? What will he prove? What will be on the tapes? And, more interestingly, what will we all say when Belichick and friends deny that they asked Walsh to make those tapes, that he did it "of his own volition?"


Walsh: Man, Myth, or Legend?

That is our claim: the word "volition" will be used a lot. Yes folks, volition.

In case you haven't been paying attention, Matt Walsh is now a golf pro in Hawaii. He has also worked in bobsledding. Just think of it: the entire Patriot dynasty brought down by a golfer/bobsledder dude. It could only be worse if he was also a professional bowler.


Professional Bowling Tour Beware: Here Comes Walsh


Coming soon: Draft fun, schedule mockery.

Matt Walsh is my hero!!!

I hope he has something to say. I will be sooo disappointed if the Patriots get off again. I'm quickly losing faith in Goodell seeing as how he is kissing Bob Kraft's drunken ass all the time.

Oh yeah, in watching the draft today, the Patriots got a QB from San Diego State.... another pretty boy! Figures!!

Haha, it's glad to see that both NEGiantsfan and Dolphinatic are keeping the hate strong in the offseason.

Great point on O'Connell, been following his career here in SD for quite sometime, the guy is a spoiled rich-kid pretty boy, perfect to be Brady's douche-in-training. Don't worry, he'll suck, I mean the guy played for SDSU for chrissake.

And also I am quite enjoying this Hawks series. It's typical Boston, they tried to buy another championship and now look at them! Garnett is the Moss of the NBA.

Have a great day, brothers in hatred!

Hey Dave H!

Did you see the celebration at the GAAAHDEN after the Celtics beat the Hawks? I mean, cmon, they had to go 7 games to defeat them. The fans were chanting, etc. Talk about bandwagon fans! Where were these losers last year?

LOL, I couldn't watch the end of that game and all of the C's stupid House of Pain wannabe fans.

But I just read they were chanting "USA" at Pachulia, so idiotic, so hilarious, and so typically Boston.

From MSN Sports:

----------

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.

The tapes sent to the NFL show the Patriots recorded signals in regular-season games against Miami, Buffalo, Cleveland and San Diego, and against Pittsburgh in the 2002 AFC championship game.

"This is consistent with what the Patriots had admitted they had been doing, consistent with what we already knew," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told The Associated Press.

The New York Times first reported the story on its Web site Wednesday night.

Walsh, who worked for New England from 1997 to 2003, agreed to turn over the tapes and other evidence by Thursday. He's scheduled to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell next Tuesday about New England's taping of opposing teams.

"We're not going to comment," said Stacey James, the Patriots' vice president for media relations. He added he expected the team will wait to issue a statement until after Walsh meets with Goodell.

Walsh's name first surfaced just before this year's Super Bowl, nearly five months after the Patriots were sanctioned for illegally taping the New York Jets in the season opener - a $500,000 fine for coach Bill Belichick, a $250,000 fine for the organization, and the loss of a first-round draft pick.

At that time, the Boston Herald also reported an unnamed Patriots employee illegally taped the Rams' final walkthrough before the 2002 title game, when New England, a two-touchdown underdog, upset St. Louis 20-17.

Goodell previously has said he was fully prepared to crack down again on the Patriots if his meeting with Walsh uncovered a tape made of the Rams' walkthrough practice.

"Mr. Walsh has never claimed to have a tape of the walkthrough," Levy told The New York Times. "Mr. Walsh has never been the source of any of the media speculation about such a tape. Mr. Walsh was not the source for the Feb. 2 Boston Herald article."

After more than two months of negotiations, lawyers for the league and Walsh finally reached an agreement on April 23 on terms that will allow him to talk with Goodell. They include an agreement by the Patriots not to sue Walsh and to pay his legal expenses and his airfare to New York from Hawaii, where he is now a golf pro.

Wowww. Cheating against the Dolphins (1-15), the Jets (4-12), the Bills (7-9), and the Browns (10-6). If the Patriots were vastly superior to every other team, how come they cheated against all those teams. Okay, so the Browns weren't that bad, and neither was San Diego, but my point is made. And they accused the COLTS of cheating? They can officially be referred to as the New England Pathetics. Thank you Giants for saving America from the "best team of all time" being a bunch of cheaters. Too bad he didn't have any videos of the Super Bowl taping scandal against the Rams, though. Even so, it's pretty obvious that they were cheating. After this, will Belicheat finally be fired?? Because it'd be interesting to see what these players can do without a coach who tries to cheat his way to the top!

Good night fellow haters,

Sarah,

I'm with you about these Cheatriots. I'm so proud of the Giants for ending that stupid reign of "perfection".

I don't know if anything at all will be done. Goodell is, apparently, in Bob Kraft's back pocket and has already punished for this form of cheating. It's so unfair to the teams that they did this against. There's nothing I would like to see more than Belichick being banned from the league, but it's unlikely to happen. He's definitely the warped mastermind behind doing this taping, but somebody had to be able to adjust accordingly, and that someone is pretty boy Brady. There's more to it, and I'm glad the questions have arisen. Other than here in New England, their fan base should just go away now. They have since they lost the Super Bowl anyway.

You suck. The search for the Walkthrough Tape will not end, we'll get Indiana Jones on this shit if we have to!!

With or without the tapes, Roger Goodell has, once again, contradicted himself. I'm sure there's deposits in his bank account from Bob Kraft. Maybe Arlen Specter will find those! Of all things to say in his press conference but that he "wasn't satisfied with Belichick's excuse of misinterpreting the rules". NO KIDDING! However, he was satisfied enough back in September to let him off the hook with a slap on the hand. Let's face it, Belichick is a liar and a cheater and he always will be. This entire organization is full of lousy characters, which, at one time, included Matt Walsh. Roger Goodell needs to be impeached!!

With every conspiracy theory post here you sound more and more retarded. Yeah - you're right, Bob Kraft paid off Goodell to make this go away. Just remember to wear your tinfoil hat in the shower Jackass.

The situation here is pretty clear to anyone with half a brain. Belichick knew what he was doing was against (the spirit of) the rules, but the rule was written in such a way that he thought he found a technical loophole. The NFL can't let someone wriggle out of this so they slap him with the largest penalty in league history.

Now, the commish even said yesterday from the podium that stealing signs is perfectly legal. Taping them in the manner that the Pat's did, isn't. When you look at the facts of the matter it's clear that this is a witchhunt.

I for one welcome a full investigation into the matter - so long as it's focus is LEAGUE WIDE. I suppose tho I could find a better use of my tax dollars.

And Dave H - good argument. douchebag.

I agree that any investigation into the league must be all 32 teams. Otherwise, it looks like a witch hunt. The Boston sports media whines enough without that.

Scott H,

Kraft didn't pay off Goodell. He paid off Walsh during the "negotiation". It is clear that is what is happening here. There is alot of money changing hands behind the scenes and stories are magically changing. It happens all the time with the mafia so who would expect otherwise with a massive organization run by a mega-rich owner.

That would not be a conspiracy. It would be smart business, and savvy, as Cartman would say.

Your team is full of cheaters and will go down in history, everywhere except Boston, as being a pathetic joke.

As far as I know, Kraft wasn't involved in the Negotiations - they were between the League and Walsh's representatives. The Pats did have a right to have someone there during Walsh's talk with the Commish as it was someone talking about them.

What stories are changing anyway? Walsh's? We never knew his story to begin with. Now he's given it - anything else is speculation and insinuation.

If you're really comparing the NFL to the Mafia, you should probably stop watching the games. You're supporting Organized crime and could be prosecuted under RICO laws...
