I guess the reason why tampering is such a problem is because it starts a slippery slope. If it's ok the day before, then what stops it from being ok a week before, or a month before, or during the third Sunday of October. I don't get it.
Theoretically, the NFL should stop teams from tampering with players under contract with other clubs. In reality, however, without full disclosure of the conversations held, the league is going to have a difficult time proving when tampering actually occurs.
f you have a seven-day window that gives every team an equal shot at the best and most desirable free agents, and a team tries to sneak in a day early, that team should get the same kind of fine/draft loss the Patriots received for the Spygate scandal.
