    as you note, the NFL does not have an interest in letting this story play out.

    Why DID they destroy the tapes?

    No New England fan can argue that away.

    And you're right, I would not be at all surprised to know that many other teams do this type of thing.

      Quite simply, the "brazen" nature in which this was done kinda argues against the possibility that there's anything particularly incriminating beyond "down and distance, let's look at the defensive signal-callers, lather, rinse, repeat."

      Even if they were taping at the Super Bowl, it's not at all clear that it was, in fact, an official violation of the rules as they existed at the time.
