Somehow, both of these guys have their own scandal, even if one of them was a lot easier for the NFL to prove than the other. All the -gates: Deflategate, Spygate and Snowplowgate. Snowplowgate is actually known as "The Snowplow Game," but we're going to add a -gate to the end of it because that's what everyone does with every scandal that involves the Patriots, and we don't want to be laughed at for being different. Snowplowgate wasn't as big as Spygate or Deflategate, but it was a pretty huge controversy at the time.
Basically, here's what happened: Massachusetts was hit with some pretty heavy snow in the hours before the Patriots were getting set to host the Dolphins for a game in December The Patriots were at the time and really needed a win because there were only four games left in the season the season was only nine games long due to a players strike. Before the game, officials agreed that a John Deere tractor outfitted with a snowplow would be used to clear snow off the field in key places numbers, sidelines, yard markers.

What the snowplow wasn't supposed to do is help either team, but that's what happened late in the fourth quarter of a game. After a Patriots drive stalled in Dolphins territory, New England kicker John Smith came out a for a yard field goal attempt. The snow plow driver, Mark Henderson, who was on work release from jail, went out to the spot where the holder was going to put the ball down and plowed it clean. Dolphins coach Don Shula went nuts and tried to have the play stopped. The refs didn't listen and Smith knocked the kick through for the only points of the game. Thanks to the snowplow, the Patriots got their much-needed win and made the playoffs with a record.
The Dolphins would go on to make it to the Super Bowl that year, but that didn't placate Shula, who's still upset about what went down in the game. Shula isn't the only coach who has been on the wrong side of a Patriots scandal. Just ask former Jets coach Eric Mangini, who blew open Spygate with a simple accusation in After the Jets were crushed by the Patriots in the season opener, the Jets accused the Patriots of videotaping New York's coaching staff and stealing defensive signals. The accusations turned into Spygate, which is a dark cloud that still hangs over the head of both Belichick and the NFL.
After a three-day investigation -- seriously, it was only three days long -- the NFL found that Belichick and the Patriots had been stealing defensive signals.
The NFL said it would continue to investigate but no further punishment was ever handed out. It's still not clear how many games the Patriots illegally videotaped, so the full extent of Spygate may never be known. An ESPN report from suggested that the Patriots filmed the defensive signals of opposing teams in at least 40 games between Former Rams running back Marshall Faulk still believes that his team was "cheated out of a Super Bowl" win in February There has long been a rumor that the Patriots filmed a Rams walkthrough the day before the game.
A Boston Herald story reporting the practice-taping was retracted, the rumor has never been proven and the Patriots have strongly denied it, but Faulk seems pretty convinced that the Patriots were cheating. Of course, you can't have a Patriots scandal without getting Don Shula's thoughts.
If the Patriots had won the Super Bowl in , Shula wanted an asterisk next to their win. He could not stop crying because every single kid made fun of him cuz. So his eyes will move so I started calling cross eyes and they just mocked. I think about like you knew what to do. You did well in high school. Sports is okay, your well-liked? No seriously! Where am I correct, I paid a lot of people lot of money through high school. I want to hear your perspective, what kind of inner dialogue and what kind of emotions were you dealing with when you had to hold people accountable, yeah well again, I I personally was not a very disciplined person, and so I was a very emotional person.

I can never seem to deliver the results earlier.
