Of course, that doesn't work for everybody. Ignorance of the law is no excuse, unless you are an NFL head coach who has been caught cheating.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said that Belichick has always taped other teams. But instead of pulling a Clemens and going for the denial, Belichick acted like his sons do when they are holding a dime bag of weed -- they act like they did nothing wrong. And the best part? Goodell bought it.
Goodell said Belichick told him he believed the taping was legal; Goodell said he did not concur.
"He said that's always been his interpretation since he's been the head coach," the commissioner said. "We are going to agree to disagree on the facts."
Wait, what? They are just going to agree to disagree on the facts. Do you think that the Goldmans would have bought that act from O.J.? You see, O.J. believed that killing his ex-wife and her friend was legal. The basic laws of society did not concur.
"O.J. said that was his interpretation and we are just going to agree to disagree on the facts," Goldman said.
