Report: New England Patriots likely to be penalized by NFL

Another season, another New England Patriots scandal.

According to a report from the Washington Post, the Patriots are likely to be penalized for their violation of the NFL’s league video policy.

From Washington Post:

The NFL is likely to penalize the New England Patriots for their admitted violation of league video policy last weekend and is contemplating disciplinary measures in line with those imposed on teams in recent seasons for infractions of game-day rules, according to people familiar with the deliberations.

That could mean a fine in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and potentially the loss or reduction in value of a draft choice, typically a lower-level pick.

Among the precedents cited by one person with knowledge of recent discussions, the lowest fine was the $150,000 sanction imposed on the New York Giants in 2016 for Coach Ben McAdoo’s improper use of a walkie-talkie on the sideline during a game.

Most other fines for game-day violations by teams fell between that and the $350,000 penalty given to the Atlanta Falcons in 2015 for pumping artificial crowd noise into their stadium during games. The one outlier, in terms of severity, was the $1 million fine given to the Patriots in 2015 in the Deflategate case. The Patriots also were stripped of first- and fourth-round draft choices and quarterback Tom Brady was suspended for four games for his role, the NFL concluded, in improperly under-inflating footballs. Other cases with more modest penalties involved the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens.

Nation, what do you think the Patriots penalty should be?

Let us know what you think!
