Pats Punishment

The Commish has spoken:
  • Fine for Belichick
  • Fine for Kraft
  • Loss of draft picks for team to be determined by standing at the end of the 2007 season
Michael Wilbon would like to have seen Belichick suspended.

John Clayton agrees that they got off easy.

Rich Hofmann, on the other hand, seems to think the infraction is no big deal, as does King Kaufman, and Paul Domowitch makes the point that this may finally force owners' hands on the issue of radio headsets for the defense. Guess they'll just have to figure out a way to deal with the problem that there is no defensive equivalent of the QB, someone who absolutely on the field the entire time and who runs the plays. Will we now see defensive huddles?

What do you think, Eagles fans? Too tough? Too lenient? Discuss....
