L’Affaire Belicheat may run deeper, according to PFT:
Goodell has ordered the team to turn over all videotapes, notes, and files dating back to 2000. They have to do this, Mortensen explained. If the materials indicate further rules violations, or if there is any fishy behavior in connection with the disclosure of information, there will be further sanctions.
My suspicion, as I suggested previously, is that Goodell is gauging public sentiment. Since the punishment has been widely perceived as having been unfairly light when compared to Wade Wilson’s five-game suspension, I think he’s looking for an excuse to drop another hammer on the New England coach.
