Facts are facts based on players' opinions?
I don't doubt that the Patriots were up to some fishy business. But I also doubt that it gave them this incredible advantage that led to 3 SB wins in 4 years that wouldn't have happened otherwise. That's talent and hard work.
If cheating gave them the advantage necessary to taint a SB win, then in theory, they should have fallen off in 2006 after being exposed. They won 16 games the following year. Some advantage.
