Yearbook, Sept. 13: The 'Spygate' verdict

Sept. 13, 2007: Five years ago today, the NFL made its ruling: For illegal taping of New York Jets signals the previous week, Bill Belichick was fined $500,000, and the New England Patriots docked $250,000 and a first-round draft pick.

Belichick accepted responsibility for the action. And fans that year made it their responsibility to remind the Patriots -- and the supposed dime-dropping Jets -- of the incident we now know as Spygate.
