Are the New England Patriots a team of cheaters? | The Tylt
New England Patriots have won their sixth Super Bowl in 18 years, with wide receiver Julian Edelman winning the MVP after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing substances policy. Many are saying Edelman's ban, as well as Brady's suspension after winning the AFC Championship in 2015, is confirmation the Patriots just cheat their way to success. Still, some feel the controversies have been blown out of proportion and the Pats are getting unfairly pegged as cheaters. What do you think? 🏈
Are the New England Patriots a team of cheaters?
Spygate, Deflategate, PED suspensions—what do all of those things have in common? They all involved the Patriots.
Granted, other teams have had PED suspensions, but they sure don't have scandals involving the filming of opposing teams' practices or deflating balls during the playoffs. The Patriots prove every year they cheat to succeed. Who's to say they didn't pull something off to win against the Rams? There should be no denying they are cheaters now!
Okay, the Patriots got popped for Spygate. Okay, but what happened with Deflategate? That was an overblown witch hunt on Tom Brady. The Tuck Rule? That was a problem with league rules, not the Patriots.
The organization gets so much flack for "cheating" when all of these allegations often amount to nothing. The Patriots aren't cheaters. The rest of the NFL is just jealous.
