Patriots coach doesn't understand why more cameras aren't on sidelines.

You probably don't think Bill Belichick has much of a sense of humor, but you'd be wrong.

At the owners' meeting Monday, the Patriots coach discussed a proposal to add more cameras to the sidelines in order to have better views for instant replay.

Belichick is all for this and made his stance perfectly clear. He even offered some suggestions for how the league can pay for the extra equipment.

"We just spent, whatever it was, how many millions of dollars on the replay system. I mean, there's a thousand cameras in every stadium, so that if somebody spills a beer on somebody, we have it on record, right? Maybe we could have a bake sale. Raise some money for the cameras. Do a carwash."

Is there anyone else who isn't 100 percent sure Belichick is kidding?
