The Boston Globe reports:
Former Patriots employee Matt Walsh certified in writing that he will turn over eight stolen videotapes to the NFL that show the signals of opposing teams, but the smoking gun that some believed Walsh might provide – a tape of the St. Louis Rams’ walkthrough prior to Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002 – is not included.
So, it seems that Walsh really isn’t offering any new material. However, it also looks like the Patriots taping procedures went all the way back to 2000, which means they used it during the Super Bowl runs. However, as I’ve said before, the Patriots didn’t gain much of a competitive advantage, if any, the camera was located in the wrong position.
Even though Walsh doesn’t have a walkthrough tape, it doesn’t mean the Patriots didn’t tape it. Walsh will probably defend this, and although I suspect this is untrue, if it was, Walsh wouldn’t be able to prove it anyways.
