Belichick apologizes for cheating

From Fox Sports

Belichick apologized Wednesday for the commotion surrounding his team following accusations that his club spied on the Jets.

Belichick said he spoke with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell this week about a "videotaping procedure" during last Sunday's game and "my interpretation of the rules."

"At this point, we have not been notified of the league's ruling," Belichick said in a statement. "Although it remains a league matter, I want to apologize to everyone who has been affected, most of all ownership, staff and players. Following the league's decision, I will have further comment."

At a news conference, Belichick refused to answer questions about the accusations, saying he said all he could in his statement. When pressed for a response, Belichick replied: "Are there any questions about the Chargers? Anyone want to talk about the football game?"

Does anyone think the punishment on Belichick was a little light? I think they should suspend him like they would a crew chief for NASCAR. What do you think?

Yeah, the guy's getting off light. It's too bad. The league could send another message here with a harsh punishment.

The punishment is light because, well, everyone kinda "cheats" in the NFL. Although I wish the punishment would be more severe, (because I hate the Pats) it won't be.
