Pro football: Hall of Famer Campbell says Patriots deserve asterisk

Chad Peters
Express-News Staff Writer (http://www.mysanantonio.com/sports/football/nfl/cowboys/stories/MYSA121307_Campbell.en.e642169.html)

Having gradually lost interest in the pro game, the legendary Earl Campbell said he doesn't follow the NFL much these days.


But that didn't stop the Hall of Fame running back from sounding off Wednesday on one of the league's season-long hot topics.


Stating the New England Patriots' “Spygate” scandal “was nothing but pure cheating,” Campbell drew a stark contrast between the character of Cowboys coach Wade Phillips — a longtime friend going back to their time together with the Houston Oilers — and Patriots coach Bill Belichick.
In fact, if Campbell had his way, he said Belichick would be out of the NFL and the Patriots would be stripped of their three Super Bowl victories following the spying incident that drew Belichick a $500,000 fine and cost the Patriots a first-round pick.


“I think if I was the commissioner, I would fire him,” Campbell said. “And I'd also fix it so he couldn't coach in the NFL anymore. And those teams that played (and won three Super Bowls), I'd consider that a tie. The other teams would get a ring, too.”


Campbell was one of a handful of former professional athletes in town to promote the launching of the Triton Sports Center, a health club that will provide young athletes specific sports training — particularly in football — from pros. The center, located southeast of the Loop 1604 and U.S. 281 intersection, is expected to open late in the spring.


Campbell, who was using a walker, said his inspiration to help such a venture is to provide young athletes life lessons and the value of education through sports.


Considering as much, Campbell said it's a “bad example” if the Patriots (13-0) go on to win the Super Bowl.


“We try to teach our young kids how to be honest and all that,” Campbell said, “and here we've got grown people. ..... (Belichick) is no better than those guys in baseball taking them steroids.


“..... If they win the Super Bowl, I think there should be an asterisk by the Patriots' name. And if they don't win, I still think there should be an asterisk by their name. Because that's wrong. A lie is a lie.”


Campbell said his opinion wouldn't change even if other teams also were found to employ secretive videotaping tactics.


“Belichick got caught,” he said. “He did a good job of doing it, too. ... He got away with it.


“I often wondered because, man, when you win the Super Bowl, it's like you move on and go to other teams. But all those guys kept staying there. I knew there was something. And all of a sudden this cheating came out and I said, ‘Ah, boy. That's it.' ”


Asked what he would think if he discovered one of his former coaches videotaped opponents, Campbell said he “wouldn't respect him as an individual.”


Campbell likely wouldn't expect Phillips to be accused of such.


Praising his former coach for “his character and what he stands for,” Campbell said Phillips deserved the success he has had in leading the Cowboys to a franchise-best 12-1 mark.


Smiling widely, Campbell recalled how he used to like to “mess around” with Phillips — the Oilers' defensive coordinator in Campbell's first three NFL seasons (1978-80) — during extra-point drills. Campbell would interrupt the drills by getting linemen to jump offside.


“Wade would get so upset,” Campbell said, laughing heartily.

It took the Pats 3 requests/ultinatums & 10 days before they finally turned over a truckload of tapes dating back to 2000. Goodell then took a mere 36 hrs to say the tapes were not incriminating & had been destroyed.

sounds to me like an old man talking like an old man :listening :rant:

and why should that incident put an * next to the pats anyway- does anyone honestly think that this was the main reason behind 17-0?? i thought so.. but if it makes people feel better i guess.. what was it that kanye west said again 'there'll always be haters, thats just the way it is....'

What you think about Earl Campbell's "take" on this subject means nothing. Whether you think he was right or wrong, ridiculous or insightful is immaterial. He IS Earl Campbell and this is a message board that focuses it's attention on the Houston Texans. Earl Campbell is a legend in these parts and he will always be accorded a certain amount of leeway by the people who saw him play and loved him for it.

Disagreeing with Earl Campbell is permissable. He is not infallible as he will readily admit. Showing a lack of respect for Earl Campbell is unforgivable in my opinion and calling him a moron (twice, in a single thread no less) is reprehensible. You've earned a permanent place on my ignore list. If I had the power to do so I'd send you on the walk of shame out the door.

Earl was traded to the Saints for I believe a first round draft choice in what many people in Houston feel was a disgraceful act by Ladd Herzog. He did this following the signing of Warren Moon who had been "seduced" by a bunch of money and the fact that he'd have his CFL coach (Hugh Campbell) here in Houston and Earl Campbell in his backfield. Both Campbells were gone in no time. Hugh was fired because frankly he stunk and Earl was traded to the Saints because Herzog knew that they would overpay for him.

Arguably nobody but Bum Phillips would have given up a pick that high for Earl in 1984 but the move did reunite the two of them in New Orleans.

Bum Phillips should not have been fired.
Earl Campbell should never have been traded.
Ladd Herzog should never have been allowed to escape the city limits with his hide intact.
Bud Adams should never be forgiven.

Good reading from EarlCampbell.com

One day, after taking his young son to get a haircut, Earl tuned into his favorite country radio station on the way to grab a quick lunch. He was shocked when he heard the disc jockey announce that he had been traded to the New Orleans Saints. He was about to be reunited with his favorite NFL coach, Bum Phillips. But Earl was furious that the Oilers and Bud Adams had failed to warn him of the upcoming trade. He knew the "business" of the NFL, but he was shocked and hurt that he had to hear about his trade over the radio. That night, Earl emptied his locker alone and thought about all the wonderful and exciting times he had as an Oiler, especially during the "Luv Ya Blue" years. He was grateful for the opportunity God had blessed him with. He knew it was time to look toward the future…and a long-awaited reunion with Bum Phillips.

After watching his two favorite coaches become the center of media firestorms, Earl now found himself in the middle of one. The Houston fans and media were angry to hear about his trade and the media in New Orleans felt Phillips shouldn't have traded a first round draft pick for an athlete they considered to be "past his prime." Amid the media criticisms, Earl finished his first season as a Saint with 468 yards on 168 attempts, while sharing playing time with a rookie. He was not disappointed by his efforts, but he knew that the fans and the media in his new home city were growing restless with their team and Coach Phillips. During the 1985 season, Bum Phillips, a dedicated hero to the game of football and to the numerous athletes he coached, decided to retire from the NFL, leaving the position to his son, Wade, who was an assistant under his father.

i think its a good thing for both of us that i don't still live in clearwater.
Clearwater is a gorgeous place to live, and i go there all the time for beer. not sure what your not living there has to do with anything.

(Sigh) I HATE being the voice of reason...

Kastofsna is a pain in the @ss, but the man IS entitled to his opinion. We are after all an open forum. I disagree with the great Mr. Campbell and I wager that the issue that many have is the fact that he was refered to as a "moron." I disagree with K's assessment of Earl's comment, but I don't think it warrants a ban.

He's not a pain in the ass. He just wants attention. He's starving for attention. His daddy probably never hugged him when he was little. Just ignore him, he'll go away if no one pays attention to him.

there's no arrogance. i voiced my opinion and i get threatened with a ban. i'm just basking in the irony of that coming from swt.

i aint down with the ban, but i mean just have some respect for earl, you gotta realize he is the man over here, and you must be more gentle with your comments towards him, thats all.....

c'mon now, thats not how we should be dealing with things..... yes he shouldnt bad mouth our legends but c'mon.... i promise earl doesnt care what kastofnsa thinks..... no offense kastofsna.... like i said earlier to think it, is ok, but here you just gotta think abut who your bad mouthin if you still want the respect youve gotten around here before this little incident..... though it dont change my opinion, i dont actually know any of these guys(yet) and i aint gunna pretend to know you, but your comments will always be here.....

The ban request was always sarcastic but that was before you compared Earl to Hitler.

I can't believe your suggesting that Hitlers first name was really Earl & the Germans weren't shouting Heil Hitler after all. :gun:

The moronic statement in calling one of the greats a moron is expected since the member rarely uses couth nor exhibits the ability to contextually set up "the opinion." Moreover, the attention grabbing posts that flowed after ,with shovel in hand, are laughable as well.

Earl is awfully conservative when it comes to the rules in how penalties should be handed out. I happen not to agree with my favorite player of all-time on this issue.

I do think this is a classic case of a young member, who has been here for some time, just wanting attention.

Let's face it, Earl is getting up there in years and he probably isn't all there in the head. Calling him a moron is just plain moronic, calling his words moronic can be argued, but please.......this guy is an icon in Houston, show some respect.

PS Why did Earl end up going to the Saints? I'm not old enough to remember Earl and the reasons why he left.


Because Bud Adams is an @ss and figured he had sufficiently run Mr Campbell into the ground.
