According to The Denver Post, the NFL is investigating whether a Broncos employee videotaped a San Francisco 49ers walk-through at London's Wembley Stadium four weeks ago.

And here we are folks, the long awaited sequel: Spygate 2!

What is seemingly worse however, is that Broncos Chief Operating Officer Joe Ellis confirmed Friday that Steve Scarnecchia, the team's director of video operations, is curiously enough on a "personal leave of absence" while team and league officials investigate the matter (Source - The Denver Post)

What’s even more interesting is that head coach Josh McDaniels was a part of the original Spygate in New England back in 2007, and considering his job has to be flirting with the hot seat, one can feasibly say this just isn’t good for McDaniels or the Broncos.

An interesting story to follow indeed, but could it really hold any water?

At the time, the Broncos were 2-5 coming off an embarrassing 59-14 drubbing at the hands of the Oakland Raiders.

But the San Francisco 49ers weren’t exactly considered a team to fear, either.

The 49ers had just one lousy win to their credit as they traveled to London a paltry 1-6in essence this was a crap bowl to say the least.

So why spy on a 1-6 team?

Job security? Revealed secrets? Nah, c’mon does anyone really believe this happened?

First of all, the 49ers inevitably wound up winning that game, and second, while there is an alleged report, nobody really says what the Broncos were potentially spying on other than a walk-through.

But they do heavily remind people of the 2007 New England Spygate.

Either way, the obvious mention right now is there aren't many details to go on until the investigation digs something up, if anything at all.

Until then, does anyone really care?
