Dungy Stands Ground on Patriots Comments
Even as his team readies to face the New England Patriots on Sunday, Indianapolis Colts Coach Tony Dungy isn't taking back comments that he made just after the Patriots were punished by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for using videotaping equipment to steal the signals of the New York Jets coaches in the opening game of the season.
Then, Dungy said it was a sad day for the league and likened the Patriots to Barry Bonds.
In a conference call with Boston-area reporters Wednesday, Dungy said he doesn't believe that the Patriots have used illegal tactics against the Colts but basically stood by his earlier remarks.
"That was my opinion at the time and that's what I believed," Dungy said. "I don't think it takes away from anything they've done. It's just disappointing. It wasn't a good situation for the league or any of the players in the NFL."
