    New England Fined for Cheating

    The Patriots were fined $1.1 million and forfeited a third-round draft pick because they broke NFL rules and filmed the Bengalsí sidelines during a game last year. The fine should have been larger and the lost draft pick should have been higher.

    Yep, but it’s the Patriots, NFL love child, should have been a bigger fine and 1st round pick.

    Whats sad is they thought it was necessary to cheat vs the Bengals.

    I think they were video taping other teams as well. They just got caught doing it to the Bengals.

    doesn't make sense to tape a shitty team when you have the #1 defense winning your games already

    Wasn't it their social media team that filmed it?

    Quick google search, it was their "Do your Job" film crew. Their version of Hard Knocks I guess. So technically the Patriots didn't authorize it, the filming crew just thought it would make good footage and didn't know the rules. I'm also guessing there is a handful of people who got fired as a result.

    Yep, they were trying to film a documentary thing and just didn't get the clearances from the proper channels. This isn't really related to getting some type of edge on other teams that Belichick "used to" do.
