As a lifelong, rabid Patriots fan, I'm feeling mixed emotions.
Every commentary I've seen notes how all football teams try to obtain the signals of the opposing team. In the words of one commentator, "Everyone speeds. Speeding is wrong and against the law. Not everyone gets caught."
On the other hand, of course it's incredibly embarrassing and low-class. I want it to stop and I want the Pats to gladly pay the price that the NFL sets for this behavior.
...if they're punished, then "all the other teams" that do it should be punished, too.
...if they have to forfeit the Jets game, then the Yankees have to forfeit every game Jason Giambi played in, and so do the Giants for Barry Bonds. Where does it end?
...I think it's obvious the Pats beat the Jets fair and square, that their talent has been enough to win games, and that the stupid spying is really not necessary for them to win. Hence, the frustration for Pats fans.
I am not a big fan of Bill. He's not a warm and fuzzy guy and apparently cheating is in his blood, as he left his wife for a secretary in the Giants organization while working under Parcells.
I would like to see Bob Kraft move on to a new coach with similar talent and similar team philosophy but a much more classy personality, like Tony Dungy.
