Default Spygate vs. Bounty

I am shocked that this is even a debate, but I wanted to see if this was solely my opinion or the vast majority. Okay since the Saint's "bounty" scandal or what have you people have been tossing around the idea that this is possibly worse than the Patriots famous "Spygate" scandal from the early to mid 2000's.
The issue I have with that is simply that the Pats were videotaping practice, which is outrageous. You can create a very effective gameplan with that type of material. The Saints were just putting money on the heads of certain player they would see. So at the end of the day they would have to rely on their skills and talents to get the money. I will admit it is far from okay to try and injure a professional player but in high school it was the same way but without the money. I wanted to hurt the other team every down.
But let me know what ye think.

I just want to see fake bouncing tits, not the surgical scars that put them there.

Well I definitely believe what the Patriots were doing was much much worse then what my Saints were doing. I mean with video taping that is a big advantage in a game while with the Bounty system your not even sure if your going to injure the player when you hit them. The fact that this is even a debate is outrageous.
