Chris Mannix's description of Manny Pacquiao's destruction of Antonio Margarito (Inside Boxing, Nov. 22) was truly outstanding. It's a shame we may never see Pacquiao fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. because whoever won could go down as the greatest fighter of all time.
Selena Roberts's column about the football controversy at Southington High (POINT AFTER, Nov. 22) brought back memories of my days coaching high school football. During one of our games we too found the other team's list of plays. But when I handed the list to our head coach he, unlike Coach Hernandez, crumpled it up and dropped it in the trash can.

If Southington's coach had stolen the armband codes from the opposing team, that would have been one thing. But the opposing player dropped it on the field. Totally different. For anyone to compare this incident with Spygate is outrageous, because Patriots coach Bill Belichick violated rules that were clearly designed to prevent such cheating.
Erik Michae, Plainville, Conn.
I can't believe that any coach would not consider this a form of cheating. If this situation were presented to the players as a hypothetical—"What would you do?"—I bet they'd be able to determine right from wrong and demonstrate good sportsmanship.
