"Here, have this,'' he told Belichick. "I don't know if you're going to sign me or not. But this is yours."

You must be a Sun-Sentinel subscriber..........when I click the link I get forwarded to the front page.

Anyway back to the topic, not to get overly technical, but a team's playbook is that Team's/Business's intellectual property. It's really not any different than an engineer for Apple providing Samsung the design specs for the new iPhone. If Apple caught Samsung stealing they go after Samsung and that former employee with everything they had. In fact, both of these Companies continually sue each other over matters that are much less obvious.

The last thing Goodell wants is to re-hash how bad the Patriots cheated and the in-validness of those championships. Further, Goodell doesn't want to answer anymore questions as to why he destroyed evidence (Patriots' spy tapes). Since Evans works for the NFL, I wouldn't be suprised if he gets fired.

In the words of Joey Porter............

"Why, if you have nothing to hide, would you destroy [the evidence]? That's how I've looked at it from the beginning. Why destroy something that doesn't have to be destroyed? Let everyone know what was on the tapes. Why would you destroy them so fast?"

I'm sure Belichick pushed it back and said, "No, Heath. That would not be honorable."

:haha

Not exactly Shulaesque. For those of you who do not know the story. A Dolphins Player found the Raiders playbook and turned it over to Shula. Shula promptly gave it back to the Raiders. I believe that was mentioned in "A Football Life, Don Shula" by NFL Films.
