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.

Great Read For Any NFL Fan!, January 29, 2013

I was amazed that amount of information this book had on Spygate! I was raised a Steelers fan, but being from Western New York, I also root for the Bills. So obviously I'm not very fond of the Patriots. The most interesting aspects were figuring out who Ernie Adams is and how he functions within the Patriot organization. The Doug Flutie incident, the Matt Walsh incident, the home records, the messing with other teams' frequencies...the Patriots can do this all! Whether they actually have done it, I don't know. But this book leaves a lot of questions that neither the NFL nor the Patriots have answered. They either cover them up or pay people to not say anything. Whether you believe it or not, the information in this book is all sourced and you can go to those sources and read them!

AWT,
A truly fantastic read! Enthralling, surprising and insightful. If you're an NFL fanatic like me then this is a must-read.
J. Smith,
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.

Wow!, January 14, 2013

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.

Well written, October 28, 2012

Really well written book! Eye opening as well. Tons of info, and the statistics section really raises alot of questions.

After reading it though, it infuriates me to see patriots/belicheck win...

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,
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.

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

Through an Officers eyes, January 14, 2013
As a Police Officer and an avid NFL fan, after reading Mr. O'Leary's book "Spygate The Untold Story," objectively analyzing all the facts and subjective assumptions, it is my opinion that an advanced cheating system is still in place within the National Football League. Not only does Mr. O'Leary support his work with both facts and statistics, he provides an excellent investigative narrative of this alleged "crime." O'Leary then arranged his drudgery in a manner that is easy to read and understand. "Spygate The Untold Story" is a must read for every NFL fan who has an unbiased opinion of Spygate. I myself would be interested to see what a member of The Grand Jury would do after reading, "Spygate The Untold Story".

Estrada,
Awesome-
This book I bought with little intention of thinking this was going to reflect on the whole league. I thought it was just a anti-Patriots book talking smack about how they are garbage and how they only won because they cheated, but this book goes into intricate detail about how exactly they did it, their system they used, and how the whole league covered it up. It should have been a WAY bigger deal than was advertised by the media and the NFL owners/commish. This piece of work really opened my eyes into how people cover up flaws successfully even in a multi-billion dollar company. Blew my mind. Thank you Brian for showing the world the truth of the business.

Chap,
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.
Steven Coppel,
I have to commend Bryan O'Leary for doing the job that the sports media failed to do in finally exposing, explaining, and ultimately discrediting the Belichick led Patriots teams as the result of a high tech Black Ops outfit which has led to many years of fraudulent success. Why didn't the sports media put a package as well-versed as this out to the public? One can choose their own theory, and many of them probably have merit, but what isn't up for debate is that the Spygate scandal was every bit as damning to professional sports as the 1919 Black Sox World Series, NBA referee Tim Donaghy, runners Ben Johnson and Rosie Ruiz, and Pete Rose were to the integrity of their respective games.

Nothing in this book is fluff and it's very low on speculation despite what other reviewers have claimed. Instead, author O'Leary explains what happened, dissects the inner workings of their system, and then infallibly correlates the results. For instance, how would someone argue against the fact that all of New England's coaching staff and players have not experienced anywhere near the same performance as they have while playing under Belichick? You simply cannot. The entire team is run through the use of an illegal spy system that feeds both the offense and defense the upcoming play with a counter play designed to neutralize it. This system is done by video taping the opposing team's hand signals, deciphering said signal, and then bringing up a play that will specifically exploit the weakness. True that this is the goal of every coach, to know their opponent's next move, but never in the history of the game has this desire been aided by modern technology and done with such surgical precision.

As an NFL fan I doubt that the Patriot's have ended this practice and have only found more surreptitious means to continue this fraud. The NFL owes it to the fans to end this once and for all instead of trying to cover this up to protect their cash cow. As an NFL fan, or a fan of sports in general, you owe it to yourself to read Mr. O'Leary's book. As for myself, I've suspected there was something fishy about the Patriots ever since the magical first Super Bowl season with 6th Round Draft Pick and virtual rookie Tom Brady behind the helm and failed Head Coach Bill Belichick calling the shots. As time goes on we find that more and more evidence comes to light showing us that NFL reality isn't quite true reality.

What this book does is capture the essence of that evidence and distills it down to one bitter, hard to swallow shot of medicine that is sorely needed.
