Fined and Penalized for Cheating

I'm sure many of you have seen the penalty handed down by the NFL for the Patriots 'cheating'.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was fined 500,000 and the team was ordered to pay 250,000 even though the owner apparently was unaware of the cheating. In addition to the money, the Patriots will have to give up their first round pick if they miss the play offs, or their second AND third round if they don't.

No team has ever been penalized a first round draft pick.
