DeflateGate and SpyGate. Those are two terms that will forever be linked to the New England Patriots.

In 2007 the Patriots were caught videotaping the play-calls of the New York Jets. After further investigation it was determined they had been doing this from 2002 to 2007. Bill Belichick was fined $500,oo0, while the team was fined $250,000 and had to forfeit a first-round draft pick.

Now the Patriots are on the hot seat again with the whole Deflate-gate scandal which has come back to the forefront in recent days. Will Tom Brady be suspended for his involvement? What kind of league imposed penalty will the Patriots be faced with this time around?

There is no question these scandals are going to put a black mark on what is one of the greatest dynasties in the history of sports.
