Bill Belichick, the head coach of New England Patriots is in serious trouble as there are allegations against him for cheating in the game against Cincinnati Bengals. While the 67-year-old is also kind of the General Manager of Patriots, he has a strong authority over the team and he controls everything very strictly.

The accusations say that a film crew employed by the New England Patriots team was taping the coaches of Cincinnati Bengals on the sidelines for 10 minutes during the last Sunday game between Browns and Bengals. Belichick says that he was unaware of the situation and NFL investigation has started if the head coach is found guilty, Patriots and NFL will surely fire him from the post.
NFL Investigation is Under Process
NFL is currently investigating the Sunday game of Patriots vs Browns and collecting every sort of evidence. The Patriots are trying to explain the situation by saying that the film crew was just recording video segments for scouts in their next Sunday game. Bill Belichick claims that he was unaware of the whole thing and NFL is investing all the footage.

But sources from the field are saying that the eight minutes of video footage consist of Bengals coaches making plays and calls from the sidelines which has nothing to do with scouts and was a clear violation of NFL rules. The experts are saying that it is a bad look for the Patriots and if Belichick had knowledge of what happened, he needs to go and NFL committees should fire him.
Bill Belichick can be Fired from NFL and Patriots
Bill Belichick has a reputation of taking total control of every action happening with the Patriots franchise and there is no way he was no aware of the accused footage. It won’t be the first time, as there has been a similar scandal in 2007 called ‘Spygate’ where the Patriots were caught taping the signals from New York Jets sidelines and had to pay huge fines and lost their first-round draft pick.
If something like that happens for a second time, there is no way Belichick will be spared and Robert Kraft will have no option but to fire him from the New England Patriots head coach post.
