 OK, so you’re the Head Coach of the New England Patriots. You’ve established a routine of secretly taping the defensive signals of opposing teams. the formula has worked for you for years, bringing you AFC Championships and Super Bowl appearances. Now you’re faced with another Super Bowl and Voila!, you decide not to engage in the very activity that helped you get where you are. Sure, we believe you. This is not a condemnation of the Patriots per se, believe me, they aren’t the only team to do this I’m sure. But the story is hardly plausible.
