    BOB RYAN writes about SPYGATE

    Article states that "America has come to loathe..." belichick and the patriots. Although other statements refer to "many people",or "more thems (Now vs. 2001), the basic thrust is that (NEWS FLASH) there's a bunch of spygate haters out there. Hey Bob, how's the research coming? You know, the polling, the surveys ... ? Without hard numbers we might also speculate that ESPN viewers have come to loathe you because you have bad hair and talk funny... Or globe readers loathe your lack of substance in an article that offers nothing newsworthy, but just a tired reminder of the power of media idiots who can spin a stupid minor violation into the big ball of SH!T that you created. An intelligent article would comment on the disparity between this phenomena and common sense. However that intelligence thing is obviously a challenge.

    Agreed, wish some writers would handle it in retrospect better. They should call out the people keeping alive well beyond any reasonable time at least.

    Spygate was nothing if you look into it, an NFL cya. Not nearly the worst offense in the last 20 years but treated like it.

    At this point Spygate is the idiots way of trying to discredit everything the Pats have accomplished while they are in total denial that their favorite team, with its personell, and coach can not possibly hope to accomplish the same.

    I also think this come from the large sector of the American population that think winning with teamwork, strategy and adaptation is somehow is more repulsive than with brute force and raw skill. These people in general are losers who will never begome great in their own little lives becasue of their trolidite-like outlooks.

    Re: BOB RYAN writes about SPYGATE

    I'm still trying to figure out how, exactly, the patriots benefitted from video taping the opposing team sending in signals to the defense. I mean, it's not like they were able to use the video during the game. And certainly the opposing team would change the signals for the next game. Plus, the offense was receiving the signals for their play at the same time. Were the pats able to video tape the defensive signals, analyze the tape to determine the defensive scheme being called, figure out the best play, communicate the play to the pats' sideline, who in turn signalled it to Brady all within the allotted time?

    Common sense does not rule in this matter.  This will never go away for the haters ( who are fans and not in the know football folks, except for some ignorant few) as a way to diminish all that the Pats have done since 2001.

    Nobody really knows the use of the tape and most guesses are that there isn't much value at all. BB never explained it other than he didn't know the illegality of it. (Obviously since the guy taping was right out in the open...) For all we know it could have been gamesmanship. the whole thing is stupid and IMO unnecessary as is the ongoing 'scorn" being directed at BB or NE. If someone in the media had any balls the story should be about the colossal injustice perpetrated by the NFL over this. A court of law would come in handy here except the league is apparently exempt from such laws. Any crack psychological could see the source of this hating is 90% jealousy or irritation that the patriots have whacked their team. These people would latch onto any convoluted misinterpretation that would vilify BB provided by the media . It's what they do. Perpetuating this 4 years after the fact makes BOB RYAN an ignorant gutless as$h0le.

    Minor violations don't cost BB and RK $750K. Checked your IQ lately?

         I think you hit on it, Cool. If Ryan had included in his article that he was of the opinion that spygate was a bunch of overblown NY media generated nonsense, his article would have been much warmer received by his readers. Patriots' fans would like to see the Boston writers start defending their Patriots, for a change...particularly after a Boston writer, John "Weasel" Tomase, so badly and falsely besmirched this great franchise.

    articles about spygate don't really bother me. It will ALWAYS be a part if Patriot history. Because of it's negative nature, it will ALWAYS be a subject for the media to write about.  Pick up any newspaper in any part of this country - what percentage is news about "bad" things? Is there even a newspaper that has a majority of the articles covering "good" things?

         Patriots fans have been waiting for years for the local sportswriters to compose such an article. But, the media template is in (the Pats are cheats). Rather than set the record straight, and defend the Patriots and their fandom, the sportswriters at the Globe and Herald have refused to go against the template...remaining mute about the subject. In so doing, they have lost the respect of their readership.

    This is true, but the fact is they are too lazy and opportunistic to do the type of research and come to logical conclusions the way this guy did.
    I honestly don't know how on earth they keep their jobs.
    Half-azz'd, lazy dopes.

         It's not that they're too lazy. They don't want to go against the media template. Media marching orders come from NY. The NY Times owns the Boston Globe:  

    The New York Times also owns the International Herald Tribune, The Boston Globe, 15 other daily newspapers and more than 50 Web sites, including NYTimes.com, Boston.com and About.com.[6]

    In addition, it is a minority stakeholder in the Boston Red Sox,[7] a position acquired as part of John W. Henry's purchase of the famed baseball team. The Boston Globe and other The New York Times Company-owned newspapers acknowledge this relationship in articles about the team.

    I agree.  It is not the articles, but, the content and how the writer ACTUALLY believes the filming of these coaches signals really contributed directly to the Pats winning games!!  Even when the Pats have played a team they haven't played in years, someone from that fan base will argue the reason their team lost is because of BB filming their team.  No one can rationally explain HOW this film stuff aided the Pats given the nuances of the game with game plans changing weekly. What is even more laughable, when there are talking heads who even use it as a reason why the Pats haven't won a SB since 2005 because they got "caught" in 2007. Then they come up short to explain the following 18 - 1 season.

    Ya, I knew they owned the paper but regardless, too many of their articles are based on premise instead of fact and with the addition of "un-named sources".
    That is both lazy and unprofessional and you are right, they have no respect from the readers or for their profession.

    Hmm, I wonder if while theoretically (b/c noone would ever willfully subject themselves to this) lookin' through Bob Ryan's collected archives/trash, a person might once stumble upon a Ryan article having to do with facts about any single aspect whatsoever having to do with the game of football, in any way whatsoever.
