Vote: What separates cheating from strategy?

Is Peyton Manning a cheater?

"Win at all costs!" That is the philosophy that, at times, seems to pervade professional sports. However, the line between blatant cheating and mere gamesmanship is blurry at best, especially in today's sports, where technology is often used to gain that critical edge.

As part of ESPN.com's special project on cheating, we've compiled some of the more interesting cases of rule bending in the NFL, and we want to know if SportsNation thinks these cases constitute cheating or gamesmanship.

As long as there is competition, there will be individuals willing to test the legal boundaries of those competitions. So vote now and let your voices be heard!

Which scenarios listed below are cheating and which are gamesmanship?

Vote: Are you a cheater?
