Not so long ago, we came to praise the New England Patriots. [url=http://www.authenti
Not so long ago, we came to praise the New England Patriots. Denzel Valentine Jersey .Now, its time to bury them.Deflategate and a brazen disregard for the truth should be more than enough for the NFL to order Bill Belichick to stay at home on Super Bowl Sunday. If the Patriots coach wants to wear his hoodie during the biggest game of the season, he can break it out while watching the telecast from his couch.Seriously, this should be an easy one for the NFL, though the leagues response on everything from concussions to Ray Rice leaves plenty of doubt that the suits in New York will do the right thing.Heres what weve learned from various reports: 11 of the 12 footballs the Patriots used on offence in the AFC championship game were significantly deflated.That could have made them easier for quarterback Tom Brady to handle on a cold, windy day. Brady threw three touchdown passes and the Patriots won the game in a rout, 45-7. Then, when the shenanigans were discovered, Belichick — a control freak who has never left even the smallest detail to chance — ludicrously claimed he had no idea what happened.As a repeat offender from Spygate, Belichick should be banned from the Super Bowl.To make sure he really gets the point, bench him for the first four games of next season and put him on permanent probation, leaving no doubt that hes got two strikes against him and the next one would get him thrown out of the league for good. For good measure, take away a couple of first-round picks.A week ago, we wrote that the Patriots should be celebrated for their amazing run under Belichick, despite his general unpleasantness and skirting of the rules.After all, no franchise in the era of salary caps and free agency has come close to their streak of 14 straight winning seasons, 12 playoff appearances, three Super Bowl titles and nine appearances in the conference championship game.Now, some of that success could seem tainted, even dirty.Belichick certainly didnt help his cause with a news conference Thursday, where he spent 8 1-2 minutes trying to convince everyone he didnt know a thing about the rules and procedures for game balls, then refused to give a meaningful answer to 14 questions — all concerning Deflategate — that were thrown his way over the next 3 minutes.I have told you everything I know, Belichick kept repeating, over and over again.Yeah, right.Belichick began his prepared remarks sounding a lot like Sgt. Schultz from the old TV sitcom, Hogans Heroes. You know, the bumbling German prison guard who turned a blind eye to inmates coming and going as they pleased, always insisting, I know nothing. Nothing!As Belichick regaled us with his little tale, the only thing missing was Col. Hogan popping up from a tunnel under the podium.I learned more about this process in the last three days than I knew or talked about in last 40 years coaching in this league, Belichick insisted. I had no knowledge of the various steps involved in the game balls and the process that we went through, what happened between when they were prepared and went to the officials, and went into the game.We kept watching this sham, but only to see if his nose started growing.In my entire coaching career, I have never talked to any player or staff member about football air pressure, Belichick said, somehow managing to keep a straight face. That is not a subject I have ever brought up.Now, if you believe that, wed love to give you membership to the Bill Belichick School of Charm and Integrity.As often happens when someone is trying to pull off a scam, the story gets a bit convoluted. For Belichick, that happened when he talked about the balls that the Patriots use in practice. Apparently, he cares A LOT about how those are prepared.Im sure that any current or past player of mine will tell you the balls we practice with are as bad as they can be, he said. Wet. Sticky. Cold. Slippery. However bad we can make em, I make em. Anytime players complain about the quality of the balls, I make them worse, and that stops the complaining.But on game day, were expected to believe, he doesnt pay a lick of attention to the state of the football.Brady followed Belichick to the podium and issued the same blanket denial, though his remarks were peppered with plenty of what, me worry? grins, like a suspect in the interrogation room who wants you to know he did it — and knows you know he did it — but figures theres no way to pin the crime on him.Everyone wants to know: Why would the Patriots feel the need to cheat when they were playing at home and, judging by the score, clearly had the superior team?Not to put these on the same level of historical significance, but its a reminder of the early 1970s, when President Richard Nixons henchmen launched a totally unnecessary operation that became known as Watergate, not long before Nixon cruised to victory in one of the greatest U.S. presidential election routs.The ensuing coverup was worse than the crime and wound up costing Nixon the presidency.This one should cost Belichick his spot on the Super Bowl sideline.___Paul Newberry is a national writer for The Associated Press. Write to him at or on Twitter at Robin Lopez Jersey . I suppose Sternberg has earned the right to speak out since his Rays, despite one of the lowest payrolls in the Majors at $58 million, are entering the final weekend of the regular season holding down the first Wild Card spot in the American League, one game ahead of Cleveland and two up on Texas. Kris Dunn Jersey . Kenny Miller scored from the penalty spot and Camilo Sanvezzo came off the bench to add two late goals as the Whitecaps kept their playoff hopes alive with a 3-0 victory over the sagging Impact on Saturday afternoon. . Nat Borchers headed in the sole goal in the 54th minute, getting on the end of a Kyle Beckerman free kick. The defeat cost Sporting top spot in the Eastern Conference. Even a draw would have moved the Kansas City club above Columbus.LONDON -- Cesar Azpilicueta seized on a defensive blunder and Juan Mata scored a slick second as Chelsea dumped Premier League leader Arsenal out of the League Cup with a 2-0 victory at its London rival on Tuesday. The fourth round loss ends one route to a trophy for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who failed to mastermind a victory over Jose Mourinho for the ninth time as he looks to deliver his clubs first silverware since 2005. Mourinho now has a quarterfinal to look forward to in the competition that gave him the first trophy of his first Chelsea reign in 2005. Manchester United will be joining Chelsea in the last eight after Javier Hernandez scored twice in a 4-0 victory over Norwich. In a shock result, Fulham was beaten 4-3 by second-tier club Leicester. Stoke was forced into extra time against Birmingham but won 4-2 on penalties after it finished 4-4 over 120 minutes. West Ham also required penalties to see off lower-league opposition, but won 2-0 at Burnley with goals in regulation time. At the Emirates Stadium, Chelsea was in action for the second time in three days, although only Gary Cahill survived the team that beat Manchester City on Sunday. Wenger made eight changes for the side that won at Crystal Palace on Saturday to remain top of the league. But in the cups, Arsenal has now lost twice in eight days, having been beaten at home in the Champions League by Borussia Dortmund last Tuesday. A blunder at the back gifted Chelsea the opener in the 25th minute after launching a swift counterattack. Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinsons backwards header was too weak to reach goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, and Chelsea defender Azpilicueta ran through and dispatched the ball into the net. Arsenal rarely looked like equalizing and Mata smashed the second into the roof of the net in the 66th after Willian nodded the ball back to the Spain midfielder in a move that started from a throw in. It left the home crowd demoralized. "Lets not go too quick for conclusions," Wenger said. "Its difficult to swallow what happened to us in the last week." But asked about his poor record against Mourinho, Wenger quipped: "I dont think he scored the first goal." At Old Trafford, United turned in thee kind of performance missing largely in the league this season and Hernandez might hope for more game time up front after this double. Cameron Payne Jersey. The Mexico striker opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 20th after Leroy Fer fouled Adnan Januzaj. He was on target again nine minutes into the second half, heading home after Mark Bunn parried an initial effort. "He has waited patiently for his opportunities and when he gets them he has taken them," United assistant manager Steve Round said. Phil Jones volleyed in Uniteds third, and Fabio da Silva collected a long ball from Wayne Rooney and slipped it past the onrushing Bunn. Play had been halted for around eight minutes in the second half after Norwich midfielder Robert Snodgrass was knocked out during a clash of heads with Rafael da Silva and was taken to the hospital. "It is very much concussion," Norwich manager Chris Hughton said. "He has also taken a whack in the incident itself so they will have a look at that and X-ray that just to make sure there is nothing broken." In a seven-goal thriller at Leicester, it was a night to forget for Fulham. Although Hugo Rodallega put Fulham in front, Wes Morgan, Chris Wood and Ignasi Miquel put Leicester 3-1 up by the 53rd. Fulham staged a comeback through Rodallega and Giorgos Karagounis, who scored directly from a free kick in the 86th. But Lloyd Dyer restored Leicesters lead for good three minutes later. At Turf Moor, West Ham left it late to see off Burnley thanks to two penalties. Matthew Taylor scored the first in the 76th after Jason Shackell brought down Kevin Nolan, and Jack Collison netted in stoppage time after being fouled by Keith Treacy, who was sent off. Entering the final five minutes at St. Andrews, Stoke looked set for a 3-1 victory against a Birmingham side that had been reduced to 10 men on the stroke of half time when Wade Elliott was sent off amid a mass melee. But Birmingham substitute Peter Lovenkrands scored twice in the last five minutes to send the game to extra time. Kenwyne Jones restored Stokes lead just four minutes into the additional period before Olly Lee levelled for Birmingham. The clubs luck ran out, however, in the shootout.
