JOEinPHX Posted March 26, 2015 Share Posted March 26, 2015 I had a chance to spend time last night with a current Falcons scout, a former Falcons coach now with the Bucs, a Cardinals coach and a Cardinals front office guy. The conversation eventually came around to the various Gates - DeflateGate, CellGate, NoiseGate and most recently, TamperGate. The NFL is expected to launch as many as 20 investigations into tampering during the free agency period and they intend to come down very hard on provable instances of tampering, and they apparently want to set the stage for severe punishments by handing down some severe punishments for provable prior cases of undermining the integrity of the game. Even though DeflateGate is probably the most egregious offense, it is also the least provable and may go unpunished. On the other hand, CellGate and NoiseGate are both proven and confessed offenses, which bodes ill for the Browns and Falcons.Everything I heard last night is only a step or two removed from rumor, but it certainly bolsters the recent report by Adam Schefter..
