Bill Belichick spoke with the media today, and he may have taken a small shot at the NFL when asked about a rule the Pats proposed regarding fixed cameras placed on all the boundary lines. (via Doug Kyed over at NESN)

“We just spent, whatever it was, how many millions of dollars on the replay system,” Belichick said. “I mean, there’s a thousand cameras in every stadium, so that if somebody spills a beer on somebody, we have it on record, right? Maybe we could have a bake sale. Raise some money for the cameras. Do a car wash.”

Obviously Belichick was joking, but he does bring up a good point. The NFL makes so much money, why can’t they use some of that to improve the game? Now I don’t know how the league breaks up their money, but it doesn’t make much sense them not being able to afford cameras on all boundary lines in each stadium. Not only is that practical, but it would definitely help improve competition.

    Belichick prolly wants a bake sale to pay the refs and league off for all the crap he gets away with!!

  • Cannot stand the lies

    The NFL owners and other officials are killing the game. Focusing too much attention on the quarterback, devaluating the RB’s, the overuse of pick plays, has dulled the offense. On defense a poliferation of nonsense rules which has all but eliminated the hard hit. Too many people who have never played football are deciding the course of the league. Just look at sorry state of the NFL Network.
