    Looks like Bob Blowkraft's tired of losing people due to his escapades.

    What I don't get is how all this drama and politics and turnover are going to help O'Brien "get better at" calling plays or keeping Watson's ribs off the bus or help Mike Devlin learn to develop offensive linemen. Seems like a lot of fine-tuning the engine when you only have three tires on.

    An acquaintance once let a skilsaw get away from him and slice across both thighs. They decided he would need one amputation; the other leg would heal without drastic measures. They got the paperwork screwed up and took off the wrong leg. So then they had to go back and remove the other one. He thought he had a pretty good case and got his lawyer into it. The lawyer told him he didn't have a leg to stand on.:pinned:

    From the link, the Pats don't have a leg to stand on.

    Just my understanding of the situation: Easterby and Caserio videod talking at Kraft's home at ring presentation. Next day, Gaines terminated. So far no proof Texans offered a job. I would not be surprised if a audio magically appears. I would not be surprised if we end up losing a draft pick over this. Circumstantial evidence at best but does commish need more?

    How does the NFL normally find tampering? Does it require metadata like timestamps from phone calls, or hard evidence like the content of the conversation?

    Both men had justifiable reasons to be in the same room. Both men had a working relationship and therefore had reason to banter.

    There would have to have been a witness.

    If Easterby tampered, Caserio could just say so. We can't assume Caserio would like about the conversation

    So Easterby going to the ring ceremony a day before Gaine was fired constitutes tampering?
    The lows the Patriots stoop to is just ridiculous.
    This won't stand. The NFL will see right through the Patriots charade.

    The ring ceremony was the day before Gaine was fired.

    I changed it right before you quoted my post. Lol. I realized the timing mistake.

    Timing--- that's what makes the situation look like possible tampering

    Seems likely that Caserio will spill the beans if the report is true that Caserio met w/ BB and Kraft just before they filed the tampering charge. They all got their story together before filing.

    There is a solution. The Texans just need to give the Patriots a draft pick for Caserio.
    Just do it and get this drama over.

    Pats are playing chess and we're still trying to figure out the checkerboard.

    And Caserio's testimony. Doesn't it make sense that they'd ask him what he has to say before they filed charges?

    Why extend this thing out over weeks or months in court, which is just what the Patriots want?
    Just get it over with and give up the draft pick. Sure the Texans will lose the draft pick, but they will get Caserio.

    Oh this is great. Check this out guys. If the Patriots would have just denied the Texans the right to interview Caserio, it could have taken weeks for the Texans to go through the league and force the Patriots to allow the interview. Instead, the Patriots chose to file a complaint of tampering against the Texans.
    Here's the kicker. All the Texans have to do is offer the Patriots a draft pick for Caserio and the Patriots have no choice but to accept it. If the Patriots refuse the draft pick, the complaint is automatically dismissed and the Texans get to interview Caserio right away and offer him a contract for GM. If the Patriots accept the draft pick, Caserio is then the GM of the Texans without an interview and all he has to do is sign the contract.
    The Patriots might have really messed up by trying to block the Texans by filing this tampering complaint. It looks like the Texans will get Caserio whether the Patriots allow it or not.
    Get this over with and send that pick to the Patriots for Caserio!

    It's the only way to get it over with now and avoid the long court battle over this garbage complaint. Plus, it'll be Caserio. I'm sure he will be able to make up that pick in some way be it through a big time free agent signing or making a big splash in the draft next year or both. It's the best thing for the Texans if they want a real GM that can help Cal build a winning team.

    I'm hoping this deal can get done by morning and Caserio can get in the building by the end of the week to be working out a trade with the Redskins and get Trent Williams here.
