<<I don't see any comparison.--29>>

Comparison to what, 29? It's not a matter of stare decisis with the football ruling controlling. It just happens that the Boston footballers had their own way of cheating using video.

If baseballers can't put spies in the bleachers, they shouldn't be allowed to view game video from the bleachers during a game. And a "designated hitter" who sits on his @$$ between innings ought to have to stay in the dugout and watch the contest. Designated hitters with time to "study video" obviously gain an advantage that other hitters don't have.

One more reason to abolish the DH. DHs cheat.
