Walsh and Goodell Meet to Discuss SpyGate

NFL Commish Roger Goodell and Matt Walsh have finished their meeting in New York to discuss Walsh’s part in SpyGate. With no Rams walkthrough tape in hand, it seems Walsh has no real smoking gun to give Goodell and today’s testimony may not mean much. Walsh has handed over all the videotapes from his “collection” and the NFL had released a statement saying basically that there was nothing new there.

Walsh will now meet with Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Arlen Specter later today in Washington to discuss the matter further.

Big news from press conference is that Goodell has acknowledged that Walsh has no knowledge of a Rams tape, was never asked to do it and had no knowledge that anyone had been asked to do it.

Also Walsh said he wasn’t aware of any other violation of NFL rules, including bugging of locker rooms and manipulation of recording equipment.

Goodell said (paraphrasing) that, “the conversation confirms that the Patriots have given us all the information about league rules they broke and there is no other information suggesting the Pats have done anything wrong.”

More to come…
