This, exactly this. To think it made no difference is assinine. Videotaping the Rams gave them enough of an edge to be competitive against a team that vastly outclassed them. As they got better, along with the cheating, they became somewhat dominant. To think otherwise is just buying into what the NFL hopes you will think and forget all about it.
