If the Jets are busted for tampering, what should the punishment be?

If the Jets are busted for tampering, what should the punishment be?

We got busted for talking to Chicago's Brigg's agent about his situation and it cost us a third and fifth round pick. What the Jets MAY have done is a lot worse.
All of their first rounders until the end of time would be nice.
hasn't this been a thread about 6 times today already

3rd round pick. This poll is really slanted - the author seems convinced that the 49ers will get a ton of compensation for this. 5th round pick wasn't even an option, which is sort of what the 49ers paid in their situation.

With no 3rd or 5th. I see a 4th round pick. But who knows if Goddell thinks it may have cost us 4 games of Crabtree services it may be a higher pick.


Anything's better than nothing.
A mandatory trade -- Sanchez for Smith
should be their 1st if goodell wants to possibly end tampering once and for all especially since they were messing with a top 10 pick. but possibly i can see us getting their 2nd. i can dream of having 3 1sts right?????
Now that we have signed him I don't think the punishment is going to be fair. The crime cost us 5 games really because he's not ready to play this week. It also was a distraction, will be a small continuous distraction and severly delayed his development/production to the team. We deserve 1 maybe 2 1st round picks but we'll get something similar to what the Bears got from the 9ers with the Briggs thing.

It's OK because karma will catch up to them. Edwards will either get injured or drop a big pass and lose the game for them.

My point of view is that the Jets POSSIBLE interference with signing Crabs is a lot more serious than our screw up with Chicago. What we did was stupid and misinformed and we were fined a third and fifth round pick. The Jets actions may have been much worse as they may have been INTENDED to steal away Crabs regardless of his being the Niner's draft choice. The NFL should be concerned with a team trying to undermine the whole draft system and the slotting of pay to rookies. The Jets weren't just screwing the Niners, but every other NFL team too. Had the Niners caved, every NFL team would be hurting in next years draft as agents used Crabs settlement as an excuse to demand more money. I am sure the NFL understands the difference between what the Niners did and what the Jets may have done.
