This is saltiness at its finest coming from the fine folks at the North Dallas Tollway Authority. They rigged the electronic sign at the George Bush Turnpike to remind the locals passing through that they consider the Patriots cheaters.

This is all water under the bridge for most as Brady prepares to play in his ninth-career Super Bowl.
