Patriots finding new ways to cheat

But they got caught this time. I've gotta say, not Bellichick's best work.
From an article on NFL.com:
The New England Patriots were fined $350,000 for protocol violations stemming from issues in October when Cam Newton and others tested positive, forcing the league, among other things, to push back their Week 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, sources told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
This isn't classic Bill Bellichick cheating, but I do recall when Cam Newton tested positive, the NFL kissed the Pats' collective behind (once again) by allowing their game to be rescheduled. Why? Why shouldn't they just have been foreced to play their backup QB in a game at the original time and date...you know, like in any other injury/illness situation for any other team in the league.
As to why they're only now getting the baby slap on their pinky, it appears that the Patsies did not follow proper COVID protocols, leading to multiple infections.
In other words, The New England Patriots couldn't be bothered to follow the rules. Imagine that.
