CHICAGO--   Community activist Father Michael Pfleger says if the New England Patriots cheated, then shouldn't the Patriots lose their title, as was done to the Jackie Robinson West Little League team.

JRW was stripped of its national championship title last year for using players who lived outside the district's boundary lines.
