Much will be made this week of the Cameragate and the Jets ratting them out and blah blah blah we've already been over this a thousand times. I'm certain that you'll hear someone say that the NFL obviously cared because they punished them by taking away their draft pick for this season. Well I think I have a better solution to the punishment received for Cameragate.
When people commit silly petty crimes in America they are often times given community service hours. Whether this be working to clean up the dirty streets of America or working at a soup kitchen they are always done for the betterment of the community. Personally I like when the punishments given force people to help those that are less fortunate than themselves. This is why I think that instead of the Patriots simply being removed their own first round draft pick, simply resulting in one less college kid saying that they were a first round draft pick, I suggest that the Patriots use this pick to give to those that are less fortunate. Give to those that are starving and have no hope.
This is why the New England Patriots should simply forfeit their draft pick over to the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins are going to go down as the worst team in NFL history. They've already been slaughtered by the inept New York Jets this season, they have no quarterback, they need just about every position imaginable. They really have no hope. So why not just give the Patriots pick to the Dolphins they really are the homeless guy at the soup kitchen in the NFL. The Pats should pass them a little Navy Bean soup.
