No More Penalities for the Patriots

According to an NFL statement issued today, the Patriots’ complete compliance with Goodell’s orders of handing over all spying related materials has been met.

“The Patriots have fully cooperated and complied with the requirements of the commissioner’s decision,” the statement [from the NFL] said. “All tapes, documents and other records relating to this matter were turned over to the league office and destroyed, and the Patriots have certified in writing that no copies or other records exist.”

So there you have it. Barring some newfound information, the Patriots will be losing at least one draft pick this off-season and, while the case seems closed from an NFL standpoint, the effects of the whole ordeal may still be felt for years to come.
