Alright... it's all I've heard debated on ESPN for the last 24 hours. Some Dolphins players suggested that the team allegedly purchased tapes of the New England offense that provided audio of quarterback Tom Brady making audible and line-blocking calls.

 

 

 

Those players insinuated that the tapes were critical in preparing for the game and provided the Dolphins inside information about New England's offensive audible system. However, the NFL has ruled that the Miami Dolphins violated no league rules.

 

 

 

This is definitely approaching the line of what is moral and what is not in sports, if it doesn't cross it. I'm interested in what you think about this ordeal... Do you think this is cheating or just scouting? Are examples such as these leading children in athletics to play unfairly??
