Belicheat Never Cheated? Oh Word?

From the NY Times.

BOSTON (AP) -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick broke his silence on New England's twin taping controversies, denying he told anyone to tape the St. Louis Rams' walkthrough before the 2002 Super Bowl and apologizing for all the attention generated by Spygate.

Belichick also told the Boston Globe he ''couldn't pick Matt Walsh out of a lineup.'' Walsh, a former Patriots employee, reportedly taped St. Louis' walkthrough practice the day before the Patriots beat the Rams 20-17 in the championship.

''In my entire coaching career, I've never seen another team's practice film prior to playing that team,'' Belichick said in a story posted on the Globe's Web site Sunday night. ''I have never authorized, or heard of, or even seen in any way, shape, or form any other team's walkthrough. We don't even film our own.''
