Shame and scandal in sweet New England

So far I've resisted commenting on Belichikgate (someone besides me must have called it that, I trust); its only effect on me being my concern over whether, with fall approaching, I'll be able, without attracting derision, to wear during my morning run on the Promenade the Pats hoodie sweatshirt my sweetie gave me for my birthday after they won Super Bowl XXXVI. Now, as so often happens, I find that Twiffer has done the job admirably, using as his springboard some hyperventilation by Gregg Easterbrook.

And the Easterbrook piece led me to this, which I can't resist sharing.

    I don't follow sports, but I've always wondered why these guys are always punished with fines. I mean, they have millions and millions of dollars. What's a few hundred thousand going to mean to them? Use a punishment that really hurts, like suspension from the rest of the season. Or lifetime suspension. Then let's see if they do stupid things like cheat.
