Do you really think that some high profile player in 2-3 years is going to want to go play in Seattle/Oklahoma City when they hit free agency? I really doubt it...especially if Durant isn't guaranteed to be there for the long term at that point.

Belichick admitted to the Commish that he's been "misinterpreting the video taping rule" since then, so this shouldn't be new news to the NFL. This is just another story for the media/Belichick haters to beat to death.

Moss isn't the reason the Pats went 18-0, he's the reason they went 16-0. Once the playoffs started, they just forgot about him. Every playoff game, there was at least one shot of Moss standing on the sidelines looking absolutely pissed, no matter what the score was.

Don't know what the strategy was, but keeping Moss mad is never a good one.
