Why didn’t the Cleveland Browns inform the Cincinnati Bengals the New England Patriots had a camera crew onsite stealing their signals? Same reason Obama told Hillary the Russians were spying but didn’t tell Trump- didn’t give a f**k
Pumpkin Center, CA 93313, 12-15-2019 Sunday: I would like to invite my Democratic friends to join me for a cup of coffee. I would like to ask them how they can justify the drive to impeach President Donald J. Trump when the entire basis of the original complaint was all hokum and hooey from the start. IF the Obama administration was quivering in its shoes that the Russians were interfering in our elections as they always do, then why did Obama inform the Hillary Clinton campaign and leave the Trump campaign to go on about it way without so much as a word?
Let’s look at this first:
We now know that the New England Patriots were caught in the act again, this time spying on their opponent this week, the Cincinnati Bengals, while they were losing to the Cleveland Browns a week or so ago. The Pats had a camera crew on site that had a clear view of the Bengals sideline. What was going on there?
Well, some enterprising wag figured that something sneaky was going on yet again, just as it did back in 2007 as I recall, when Spygate 1.0 occurred. The Pats found themselves in trouble then for surveilling the signal calling on their opponents sidelines so that it would help them win their matches that much easier. That sort of thing is not supposed to occur.
The New England camera crew obtained the ‘okay’ from the Cleveland Browns to be on site but no one for the Pats or the Browns informed the Bengals that they were under observation.
Of course, everyone on both teams- the Pats and Browns- says nothing untoward was going on but of course, we sure the heck do know, especially now that the Patriots are playing like the Browns and that every fewer win could make the difference of maintaining control of their division and possibly conference and be the difference between a first-round bye or going on the road. Of course they need something to give them an edge.
Now, we have Spygate 2.0 as AP writer, Paul Newberry calls it. He’s right, it is another Spygate and it’s bad because now, the Patriots look like the cheating losers they are. They have suffered three big losses, losses that would have been unthinkable before this season and their playoff hopes- as mentioned- could be in danger. I mean, can you imagine if the 1-11 Cincinnati Bengals were to eke out a victory over them? The era of Tommy B and the New England Patriots would be over and panic would set in in New England- the jig would be up.
Before returning to the main point of the post- how the Obama administration failed to inform the Trump campaign that the Russians were ogling them, like the Cleveland Browns failed to inform the Cincinnati Bengals that the Pats were observing them, let us finish looking at the new scandal.
Ask any of us last year following that horrible Super Bowl between the L.A. Rams and the New England Patriots, most of us thought that Brady and Coach Bill Belichick would have smelled the coffee brewing and would have chosen to retire and go out on top (even though ‘on top’ was perhaps the lowest scoring championship game in NFL history).
But oh, no, they chose to come back and do it yet another flipping season, thinking that they were untouchable, that their fecal matter don’t stink, that they could do it again, thus accomplishing something no one else ever has and that is amass the most championship rings, the most championship appearances with a single coach and quarterback, and be forever regarded as the greatest team in sports history, sort of like how we see the Romans as being the greatest civilization ever.
I think the fact that the Patriots played a string of palookas, with the exception of their first game against the Pittsburgh Steelers when they caught them napping, everything was against a struggling team until they met up with Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens.
The Ravens beat the living snot out of them and viewers could see the fury, the fright, and the consternation on the Patriots sideline as they sought to find some way by which, they could stop Charm City’s team from drilling them up the old poop chute.
They then lost to the Houston Texans in another big bashing and then lost to the Kansas City Chiefs. Suddenly, the Pats are struggling to keep their heads above water and everyone sees them for what they are. I have labeled them the “Lance Armstrong of the NFL,” a team that that fought to prove it was clean as a newborn babe when in fact they are and were a bunch of cheating skunks. I am telling you; the season is not going to end well for them.
When you add the deflation of the footballs for ‘Brady’s small hands’ in the Deflategate scandal of 2015’s AFC Championship Game, you understand that throughout their wins there are far too many questions that won’t allow us to call the New England Patriots the ‘greatest team ever’ because they are not.
Sure, they might have had some truly great seasons and set some records that might stand for a number of decades but when compared to the scandals of cheating and spying and having referees give them favorable calls which allows them to win games they may not have, it all points to an organization built atop a foundation of crap much like the Democrats impeachment of Donald J. Trump is.
Obama, WTF did you NOT tell Trump that the Russians were interfering in his campaign while telling Hillary they were? You wanted to throw the election to her for whatever unknown reason like the Cleveland Browns did not care about the lowly Bengals.
The longer this farce in the House of Representatives continues, the worse the damage for the Democrats is going to be just like IF the NFL does not jump ahead of the brewing scandal with the Patriots that carries with it the potential to destroy them as a franchise, people will forever doubt the veracity and accuracy of the games. Once that happens, the National Football League will be like pro wrestling, fun to watch but of no significance or intrinsic value in the end.
See you next year, my friends; have a great holiday season. Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, and happy Kwanzaa. God bless, love you all, and to hell with them Patriots!
