Jets Fan Sues The Fraudulent Patriots

Today, the Jets and Patriots intense rivalry is moving from the football field to a courtroom. Carl J. Mayer, Jets season-ticket holder, and, most important, a lawyer, has filed a lawsuit accusing the Patriots of fraud as a result of their spygate scandal.

He’s claiming the Pats and their coach, Bill Belichick, owe fans $184 million in compensation stemming from the infamous incident on Sept. 9, 2007, when a Patriot employee was caught videotaping the Jets’ defensive signals.”What we’re arguing is that professional sports is a business that has to respect the law just like any other business, and that teams that participate can’t commit fraud on ticketholders,” Mayer said Tuesday. “The Patriots had altered the rules of the game and were playing with advance knowledge of opponents’ plays.”

Many fans already suspect that many games are fixed or the outcome is already determined and the Patriots getting caught red-handed was a black eye for the NFL. The Patriots were a dynasty when the scandal broke and now many fans are left wondering just how much they cheated during their magical run. Football is not pro wrestling. Fans pay their hard earned money to watch a competitive hard-fought game and if teams are cheating to gain an advantage, this could affect the way people perceive the NFL.

    for all of you jets haters, the 2010 AFC championship is a done deal regardless of the cheating patriots or preferential officiating. with the new jets players (cromartie, holmes, tomlinson etc.) and the return of washington and jenkins not to mention revis island!, the rest of the afc doesn’t stand a chance and as for the colts, hell, the colts only won the afc championship game on account of the jets injury list! and they barely won at that. in playing against the jets in 2010, as the borg say, “resistance is futile”. see you in september!

    Sounds like the typical Jet fan sour grapes. Wah! wah! wah! “It’s not fair blah, blah, blah.” Reguardless of the infraction, the Pats are not the only team to do this kind of recording. Look it up. Injury list is involved with every team in the season so stuff that argument. Even if I have an inkling of your play, I as a player still need to execute my play to stop the ball carrier. I like fair play, but corruption is everywhere. I am glad the Pats were penalized for their part in this matter. I hope it never happens again. It is in the past now, and it’s time to move on. Take your pathetic little N.J. Jets and go win on your own merits, and let the Commish do his job.

    in response to mr. baldwin, “sour grapes” is the comeback comment of nincompoops! if you actualy read and understood my comment you’d see that what i said was no amount of cheating will help in 2010 as far as who will be afc champs and as far as fairness goes i never complained about it. like the late great dale earnhardt sr. said “if you aint cheatin’, you aint winnin’” and obviously the patriots were masters at it. the key word here being “were” and even with the cheating who played in the afc championship game? that’s right the new york jets. so, based on your comment of “go win on your own merits”, you either don’t actually watch football or you are a complete idiot. i say you’re probably both.
