Belicheat Gets Wrist Slapped

One draft choice isn't enough, even a first rounder.

And Belicheat himself should have been suspended for at least a few games.

I can't help but wonder if it had been any other team or coach if the punishment would have been more severe.

I actually think the punishment was much more severe than if it had been, say, the Oakland Raiders or Arizona Cardinals. My guess is it would have only cost them a 4th round pick or so... I mean, the NFL emphasizes how it's a competitive league, how much can you punish a team that can't even win WITH cheating?

I think a lot of people underestimate how huge a first-round draft pick is. Keep in mind, the Patriots managed to snag Randy Moss with a FOURTH-ROUND pick. A first round pick is a pretty huge penalty for the Pats doing something that every team does (ie why do you think coaches cover their mouths when they talk into their mics?). Every team cheats to some degree, it just appears the Pats either went further than others or just didn't hide it well.
