NFL investigating Broncos for illegal taping

The Denver Post is reporting that the NFL is investigating whether the Broncos illegally taped a 49ers practice a day before the teams played in London.

The team’s director of video operations, Steve Scarnecchia, is on a “personal leave of absence,” Broncos chief operating officer Joe Ellis confirmed to the paper. According to the Post , Scarnecchia did not travel to San Diego last week and did not appear at the Broncos complex this week.

The paper contacted Scarnecchia at home, but he declined comment, as did NFL spokesman Greg Aiello. Head coach Josh McDaniels could not be reached for comment.

You might recall that McDaniels was employed by the Patriots when they were found to have illegally videotaped the Jets coaches sending in signals during the course of a game in 2007. Scarnecchia also is a former New England employee, but he wasn’t with the team in 2007, though he has been accused of being overly vigilant in taping other teams’ signals (even, U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter made mention of it on the Senate floor in 2008).

The illegal taping this year is alleged to have occurred Saturday, Oct. 30 when both teams had access to Wembley Stadium for their final walk-throughs in preparation for the game San Francisco won 24-16.

This is what McDaniels said about the Spygate incident in New England when he was originally hired by Denver.

"I don't think it is good,” he told reporters. “To have that kind of attention was a distraction, and I think that is how we all treated it. We tried to do the best we could to limit those distractions every week, and it will be no different here. Certainly we are never looking to do anything that is not within the rules established by the National Football League."

You have a good image of the broncos? do you disregard that the NFL caught them and fined them for circumventing the salary cap? Fines and lost draft pick. But you seem to overlook that, why is that? Or is that not cheating in your book?

Well the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. He cheats like BB, he lets talented players leave like BB, but he does not have Tom Brady. Brady would have won a lot of games with any coach, he is just that good. Good receivers and and good coaches help, but no matter what Brady is a winner. It is to bad he is forced to be associated with Bellicheat!!! No one will evr know how many honest titles Mr Brady would have gotten with integrity and honesty.

Josh you are an idiot. BB didn't win in Cleveland even though he probably was cheating even then, because he didn't have Brady. No respect for Bellicheat or Mcloser. Only Brady knows how much of his success was due to a lack of integrity and honor. For that matter noone knows how much integrity and honor there is left in pro sports!
