O Rly?: Jets caught taping Patriots

So there we were, working on our contribution to this week's New York/New England pigskin hype -- an amateur-ass mashup of Radiohead's "Videotape" and DJ Class's bmore anthem "Stop Snitchin'," more on that l8r, gator -- when what should we stumble across but the back page of tomorrow's Newsday. Evidently not a joke. Payback's a bitch, eh, Mangenie?

Sunday isn't only Jets vs. Patriots. It could be Spy vs. Spy.

According to league sources familiar with the situation, the Jets were caught using a videotaping device during a game in Foxborough last season that resulted in the removal of a Jets employee. After Gillette Stadium officials saw him using the recorder early in the game, he was told to stop and leave the area. He had been filming from the mezzanine level between the scoreboard and a decorative lighthouse in an end zone. The camera was not confiscated by the Patriots or stadium security.

Tuesday night the Jets admitted that they did videotape the game and their employee was confronted, but said they had permission from the Patriots to film from that location."
