They have no reason to stop. Monetary fines are meaningless and losing a few draft picks are worth it for a Lombardi trophy.

Does anyone really believe that goodell saw no cheating on the tapes and just destroyed them for no good reason?

Goodell didn't want a cheating scandal to blow up the reputation of the NFL. So tapes were destroyed. Measures were taken. Which is arguably worse than the original cheating.

Toughen up, buttercup! If you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying…
I use that quote quite often - but in jest. Fuck the patsies and their cheating ways. And that will never come off Brady for me. I don't put it beyond Arians to use Brady's profound knowledge on how to skirt the rules.

I still remember Martz saying, "It was like they had our new playbook.". Well... They fucking DID. FUCK that whole organization.

If karma is a thing the organization and anybody who participated in any of their titles will never win one again.

Add this to the heaping pile of circumstantial evidence that the Pats were filming Rams practices prior to SB 36.

That video was disturbing. Cheating fuckwads.

In case anyone has forgotten, here is an excerpt from the comprensiv3e ESPN story on the scandal:

Then Specter turned to the alleged videotaping of the Rams' walk-through. Walsh confessed that after the Patriots' team picture, he and at least three other team videographers lingered around the Louisiana Superdome, setting up cameras for the game. Suddenly, the Rams arrived and started their walk-through. The three videographers, in full Patriots apparel, hung around, on the field and in the stands, for 30 minutes. Nobody said anything. Walsh said he observed star Rams running back Marshall Faulk line up in an unusual position: as a kickoff returner. That night, Walsh reported what he had seen to Patriots assistant coach Brian Daboll, who asked an array of questions about the Rams' formations. Walsh said that Daboll, who declined through the Patriots to comment for this story, drew a series of diagrams -- an account Daboll later denied to league investigators.​
Faulk had returned only one kickoff in his career before the Super Bowl. Sure enough, in the second quarter, he lined up deep. The Patriots were ready: Vinatieri kicked it into a corner, leading Faulk out of bounds after gaining 1 yard.​
During the walk-through, the Rams had also practiced some of their newly designed red zone plays. When they ran the same plays late in the Super Bowl's fourth quarter, the Patriots' defense was in position on nearly every down. On one new play, quarterback Kurt Warner rolled to his right and turned to throw to Faulk in the flat, where three Patriots defenders were waiting. On the sideline, Rams coach Mike Martz was stunned. He was famous for his imaginative, unpredictable plays, and now it was as if the Patriots knew what was coming on plays that had never been run before. The Patriots' game plan had called for a defender to hit Faulk on every down, as a means of eliminating him, but one coach who worked with an assistant on that 2001 Patriots team says that the ex-Pats assistant coach once bragged that New England knew exactly what the Rams would call in the red zone. "He'd say, 'A little birdie told us,'" the coach says now.​
In the meeting in Specter's office, the senator asked Walsh: "Were there any live electronics during the walk-through?"​
"It's certainly possible," Walsh said. "But I have no evidence."​

No one can cheat like Belicheat. Just look at the (lack of) success of his former coaches once they leave the compound to take on HC jobs at more honest organizations. Belicheat didn’t give them the recipe for the secret sauce for cheating. Because he’s a selfish SOB. And did I mention I hate Brady. I hate him for being the entitled stuck up a-hole that he is. For life!!!
