      Baseball takes this kind of action and the Patriots can do whatever.

          I'm guessing they will bend over and hope it doesnt hurt too much.

            IMHO - this is just the tip of the iceberg. Probably as widespread as PED.

              I also stole a hot 7oz bottle of Dr. Pepper off a DP truck around the same time. Hot DP sucked.

                Hot DP with a shot of Evan Williams Black is not bad......not bad at all.

                  If you are a manager or coach and you think someone is stealing your signs, how hard is it to CHANGE THE SIGNS. It's not rocket science. I had a college coach that had different signs depending on the number of outs. Also, if your a batter and you step in the box against Nolan Ryan, what are you going to see? You know what is coming still have to hit it.

                    Stealing signs is part of gamesmanship.

                    College teams are trying to figure out each others signals all the time.

                    So long as the info from your own games and publically available content it's all fair.

                      Nolan Ryan had a pretty good curve ball as well.

                      Also, yes they can change their signs. But they shouldn’t have to due to cheating. Astros are dirty.

                        Totally floored that the Astros cheated. I can’t believe that anyone in The MLB (PEDs) or any professional organizations or players would cheat to gain an advantage. I mean it’s not like there is $$$$$ involved or is there?

                        I would love to live in a bubble and believe that this isn’t widespread. Naive just isn’t a good look on me. As long as there is $$$ in the equation in pro sports there will be cheating or gamesmanship or whatever label you want to put on it.

                        Heck, the Steelers got the jump on steroids back in the 70s before others had a clue.

                          If you want to slow down the sign stealing, show the curve sign and throw a fastball near the head. And I wrote near the head not at the head. Rib shot also works.

                            So enlighten me are we talking about them gathering film from their own games or are these guys filming their opponents other games and signs?

                            Cause if they are gathering it from their own games well that's on their opponents for being stupid and lazy.
