Spygate 2 investigation really started (and right here in Boston) in the past week.
Against the various sources of information on the story, NFL investigators spent time in the last few days interviewing members of Patriots' organization, more than a week after shooting images of Europe's online line. game in Cleveland. The Patriots argue that the video team was not involved in the team's football operations.
Investigators of the series also collected devices from certain individuals for the purpose of attempting to establish a link with the team's football operations. As one source explained, there is a perception that investigators want to make this connection, and that they feel frustrated when they cannot connect the video crew to the football employees.
The investigation continues, with no specific timeline for completion and / or decision making. If the NFL can not establish a connection with New England football operations, the penalty should be minimal. If a connection is established, the punishment could be severe, if it happens that the team's football operations were using the video crew as a cover for collecting information.
There is no current proof of any such connection – and there is no reason to believe that there will be one at present.
