    Okay, essentially the question is this: If the Bears could cheat, without getting caught, or injuring other players, and won enough games to have Jay Cutler back at a critical time for the playoff race, would you be in favor of it? I'm not meaning steroids or Adderall, necessarily (I take that back, get Chris Conte on a healthy dose), but some rule bending way.

    While it may sound at odds to wanting the Packers and Vikes to be amongst the best teams in the league, we're decimated, this season is likely over, and honestly, I'm tired of it.

    False win over a true lose. I would become a packer fan instead if I heard they did this.

    If you aren't cheating, you aren't trying to win.

    Depends. Lip reading the peckers coaches on the sidelines? Do it. Breaking into their locker room to steal the playbook? No. As far as rule bending, I prefer we found some loopholes to exploit rather than do any cheating. Tman seemed good at that in canada, but I don't know what kind of loopholes they can use to get cutler back.
    All the adderal in the world wouldn't help conte. Maybe they could put a conte mask on Staley? That would be an upgrade.

    It is only cheating if you get caught

    Ok.... Question for Burris.

    Cheating how? Sticky on gloves? "Stealing" snap counts?

    Define how you envision cheating and yuk could get vastly different answers

    Coming up with inventive new way to try and get a competitive advantage, yes.
    Loopholes, yes

    Doing something that if you get caught doing will result in punitive action, but will not cause harm to anything but a pocket book, maybe.

    This is such a gray area.

    In general my answer is no, don't cheat you know what it looks like.
