SIX OF THE BEST… ways to stop cheating

As nerds, we usually abhor cheating when we’re part of a contest (unless the game calls for cheating as part of the play itself).

So here are six of the best ways to do that… and, because I’m a huge football fan, how they’d affect the NFL if they were applied to the Patriots.
