What People are Saying

Common Sense......, February 6, 2013

If you comment on what you've been TOLD was the "Spygate" incident, and you haven't read this book, you are most likely a fool. But one who's been very useful to the Patriots, Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, Roger Goodell, and ERNIE ADAMS. If you're one of those NFL fans that's been trained like a dog to bark "GENIUS!" at the mention of Belichick's name, and you insist on worshipping someone, do yourself a favor and read this book so you understand who ERNIE ADAMS is; and what he's accomplished. Also, after you read this book you'll marvel at the power of the media and it's ability to shape public opinion. 'Spygate' has been labeled "The most overblown scandal in sports history", read this book and find out why THAT is truly 'genius'.

Say It Ain't So (5 Stars)
I am a long time Patriots fan, but have to admit that the author presents some damning evidence here that makes me mortally disappointed in the team. While I do think some of the author's theories are pushing the limits of reasonableness, I think there are lots of other salient points made that have me thinking there is a lot of tarnish on the Pats' super bowl wins.

Baseball Pete,
Congratulations on an absolute winner. You have raised enough questions and stated your case. It's a shame that greed has tainted what was once a great sport. Well done.

Must read for NFL Fans, March 5, 2013
Make whatever accusations you want to about Bryan being a fan of another NFL team because it doesn't matter. This book spills so much more than just the videotaping that the public was led to believe was the only thing the Pats were doing.

Gamesmanship or 'cheating' has always existed in football and in other sports, but what New England was/is doing is over the top and Bryan does an excellent job of building the case.

Do yourself a favor and become informed by this book.

Marc Uhlmann,
It is just sour grapes for anyone to dispute this account of the extent that
the Patriots have been cheating. A US Senator put most of the case into the
congressional record. The NFL clearly covered this up and the extent of the
Patriots cheating is now well established. Belichek had zero answers once he
was caught with his pants down, zero.

The book itself is very entertaining and very well written. Lots and Lots
of documented facts told in an organized and often humorous way. Any NFL
fan would enjoy this book and NEVER look at the game itself in the same
way. The cheating is one thing, but the details about game plans,
strategies and personalities is illuminating even for this very long time NFL fan.

The NFL should take this opportunity to come clean. If they do not and another
issue arises in the future with regards the integrity of the games, this episode
will come back and bite them big time (ask Penn State about coverups).
Denny,
Really enjoyed reading through this one. The book covers a lot of details not widely covered by the media and lets you conclude for yourself what exactly happened with Spygate. Great read if you're an NFL fan.

I am a total NFL fan of 50+years and I have seen it all. This book is not full of rhetoric but facts over and over and it's difficult NOT to believe all the doings of the New England Patriots according to Bryan O'Leary. Before I was ever aware of "spygate", before 2007, I was suspect to the success of the Pats. They seemed to be of rather mediocre talent mostly and if the defense could "get to" Brady, the offense didn't seem too good. Anyway, this book explains why. I do not want to spoil it for you, you need to read it for yourself-Highly recommended.
Lawrence Morrison,
If you ever questioned the legitimacy of the Patriots, you must read this book. The cheating went well beyond what most fans realize. The NFL covered up the incident.

Worse Than I Thought, February 8, 2013

I will admit that I never liked New England. I was a Miami fan as a kid and later I moved on to the Ravens.

New England was always a lousy team. No real history or legendary players. They had a few good years in the 80's when then went to the Super Bowl and then again in the 90's under Parcells. But in the grand scheme of things, they were a mediocre franchise and certainly not up with the elite teams.

When they started "winning" in the 2000s, I was very suspicious. You just don't go to being a dynasty overnight.

Amazing what a coach can do for you especially when he manipulates the system and gets away with it.

This book tells us the story that the media won't and the NFL does not want you to see. Which is why the book is hard to find and is not available at other book sellers. The lengths the team/coach went to in an effort to defraud all football fans is mindboggling. And then you have a doofus commish, who will let Mike Vick back in the league and barely slap the wrist of New England, but will ban coaches and players for bounty hits? Hypocricy rules in the NFL these days, and as long as you are an owner who has the commish in your pocket, your team can get away with anything.

Instead of titles being revoked and records expunged, New England keeps doing what it does best. Lying and cheating. And we get modern "legends" of Brady and Belecheat who the media compares to Joe Montana and Don Shula. Really?

I encourage people to read this work. It is well researched and written in a factual way. No wonder I am not as big an NFL fan these days. The league cares only about itself and its image, and not about the integrity of the game. Money rules, but hey, this is the USA right?

A thought provoking read! I never really understood the real issues behind Spygate before reading this book. This book presents in terms that any fan can understand and let's the reader draw his/her own conclusions. As a lifelong Steelers fan, I find it hard to listen to Patriots fans when they claim "sour grapes" whenever I bring up Spygate. Now armed with this informative book, future discussions of the topic will be a little more interesting. In fact, I swore to my bride ( a Patriots fan) that I will never bring up the subject again if she will agree to read this book. She plans on doing so.
I'm going to have a more difficult time getting my sixteen year old daughter to take down her Tom Brady Fathead from her wall...

A Revelation-
Spygate -The Untold Story is a revelation. It is a scandal that no sportswriter, investigative reporter,or sports network (i.e. ESPN) decided to investigate the biggest sports scandal of this century. It took the efforts of a diligent, talented amateur fan, Bryan O'Leary, to uncover to scope of the New England Patriots’ cheating scandal. The NFL is obviously too rich, too powerful, and too many people’s livelihoods are intertwined with the incredible success of this 9 billion dollar business. O'Leary and KLR Publishing should be commended for shining a light on this scandal. A great book.

Michael C. Neal,
All of the information he has in the book is in the public space. He has consolidated and analyzed it and packaged this into a excellent and fun to read book. The facts alone without his analysis are disturbing. How does a team always cover the Vegas spread? 62% against Vegas? That doesn't happen without an excellent cheating system. They are 3 standard deviations away from the rest of the league!! Nobody covers the spread like that. Nobody.
Jack J.,
I thought this book was a very good read; it was so interesting I read it overnight. The author definitely has a point of view, and would probably have done a little better if he was more objective. However, that does not take away the power of his arguments. I thought the most compelling section of the book was his interview with the professional Las Vegas odds-maker. Those guys make a living out of the gambling business, and his statements on the odds of the New England Patriots' success were very strong. I definitely would recommend this book to the average NFL fan.

Factual, honest, and an easy read, December 27, 2012

Spygate: The Untold Story is a must-read for any sports fan. The Author Bryan O'Leary digs into the Spygate controversy and unveils evidence that had been cast aside by popular media outlets, such as ESPN and The NFL Network. I recommend this book to anyone that is intelligent enough to formulate their own opinion on facts and not what the media masses tell them to believe. I do not know Bryan personally, but as a lifelong football fan I am glad that there are still people out in the football community that are keeping this story alive and exposing the Patriots for all of their lies and cheating ways.

Josh Howard,
Good reading-
Wow! A real eye opener in the football world. Hard to put down with some jaw dropping revelations. Read it!
