    Eh, maybe this belongs in the Baseball forum, and if the mods want to move it, be my guest. Also, if it has already been posted (couldn't find it), my apologies and please merge. Now I know everyone despises The New York Post, but I love it for all of the reasons that everyone despises it.

    'Boston Cheat Party', hahahaha. Who cares about the article?! Read the fine print: "Like the Patriots before them, the Red Sox have been caught cheating . . . " Hahaha, "caught cheating". I still have clippings from the NYP with the NFL standings right after Spygate: asterisk next to New England Patriots, *Caught cheating across the bottom - and they ran it all year long. God love and keep that yellow rag as far as I'm concerned. Will post a clipping as proof when I get a chance, but I'm sure some folks remember that. I still have one tacked to a bulletin board in my studio right next a pic of Namath in his bachelor pad. That bulletin board has a lot of fun stuff on it.

    EDIT & P.S.: Having a little trouble getting the pic to take. Damn it.

    But nobody does it better. Reminds of that Carly Simon song - especially the spy who loved me part.

    I still have a couple of other clippings floating around with the divisional standings as well as point spreads. I replaced them occasionally as the season went on. This is the last one that I tacked up. Hardy-har.

    "I have the ultimate respect for White Sox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Red Sox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

    Boston is a great city with classy fans and ethical leadership. They would never cheat, they simply misinterpreted the rules.

    Ban all of them.

    Hinch and the GM got off with nothing. Luhnow will have another job within 5 years.

    There is NO DOUBT that Cora should be banned as well. Pete Rose has been banned for 39 years for game integrity. Do the same to these clowns.

    Objectively the Red sox didnt do anything alot of other teams do.Stealing signs has always been apart of the game.MLB definitely did the right thing but i dont think additional criticism is justified toward Boston for this ordeal.The majority of Sox fans seem pretty upset & resentful.

    Football has its gamesmanship no doubt. But the Patriots are on another level.A systemic sophisticated level. Undeniably at this point.And for some bizarre reason the fans & New England media stand behind it in complete defiance.

    Stealing signs is one thing, using cameras and buzzing devices to do it is another. Throw the book at em!
