Also when the investigators collected the information and records Goodell didn't even review them personally. He had the records burned on site!!! Finally he does some interesting statistical correlations of the PATs success that were statistical anomalies for that period of time. The greatest crime that Goodell made was not revealing what they had and having objective people review it fror public consumption - it creates more mystery and skepticism.
It's like the mystery shooter on the grassy knoll. Every football fan wants to know the story. Mystery sells books.
"In 2002, Adams collaborated with Belichick on his best-known contribution, a plan to help the Patriots upset the high-scoring, heavily favored Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI for the first championship in the franchise's 42-year history. The strategy, based on research that showed the Rams' offense revolved excessively around running back Marshall Faulk, called for the Patriots to attack Faulk on virtually every play."
Final score: Patriots 20, Rams 17.
