    The surest way for the team to deal with the media bias is to prove it on the field and being the good guys.  A better than 12 win season and a deep run into the playoffs will get the media grudgingly acknowleging the franchise for its excellence and commitment to decency and second chance opportunities until the idiots who are granted the second chances blow it like Hernandez and now, possibly Dennard.

     



    And yet, if this happened to the lousy bumbling freak show Jets, there would be a laugh a minute here.

    RESPONSE: Completely disagree. Murder is not a butt-fumble. It's no laughing matter...no matter who the player is...or what team he plays for.

    It sounds like we won't agree then. Wasn't there fun poked of Cromartie for being such a lousy polygamous dad? Although not as severe, that was no laughing matter either. Ditto Plaxico. And do you really think a 20 yr old from a bad background duped a savvy 70 yr old billionaire? Rather, it sounds like they took a calculated risk and lost; ditto Dennard, Law, Haynes, and Stallworth. The Patriot way is a joke, and let's not make light of Spygate either, although a different and lesser category; but indicative of the culture. If the situation was reversed, this would have been supreme fodder for the thread 'The Jets .. a bunch of laughs'

     Of course, Denver, while less serious, on some level has even worse issues, because that was blatant, among older guys high up in the organization that should have known better.

    RESPONSE: Are you seriously trying to equate that with murder?? LOL!!!

    RESPONSE: Oh please! LOL!!!

    Ditto Plaxico.

    RESPONSE: That idiot shot himself in the leg!! LOL!!!

    And do you really think a 20 yr old from a bad background duped a savvy 70 yr old billionaire?

    RESPONSE: And do you really think that a "savvy old billionaire" would hand over a $40mil dollar deal to a man that he had reason to believe was a thug??

    Rather, it sounds like they took a calculated risk and lost; ditto Dennard, Law, Haynes, and Stallworth.

    RESPONSE: Again, would a savvy billionaire take such a risk? Obviously, Kraft thought that AH turned the corner, and straightened up. Don't you remember that after AH got his $40 million dollar deal, that he teary eyed thanked Kraft, and contributed $50,000 to the Myra Kraft charity?

         NO ONE SAW THIS COMING!! NO ONE CRITICIZED THE PATS FOR SIGNING AH LONG TERM. NO ONE!!!     

    The Patriot way is a joke, and let's not make light of Spygate either, although a difn ill advised bar fightferent and lesser category; but indicative of the culture. If the situation was reversed, this would have been supreme fodder for the thread 'The Jets .. a bunch of laughs'

    Usually, you have excellent football analyses; but in this case, me thinks you protest too much, and making it personal enhances the notion; even your basic cut/paste skills are currently, lacking, which is consistent with how upset you've been from this thread's get-go. Get over it.

    TP I hope you have forwarded your comments to this media jerk.  Thanks for posting, I would never have found as I never read that paper.

     




    It was the same premise Ashley Fox of ESPN used. I knew it was coming. In fact, they all released their columns pretty much on the same day. I just was waiting for which outlet would do it first.

     

    The classier outlets didn't touch it with a 10 foot pole, because you know, it's kind of a preposterous premise.

    All it takes is one person to introduce a premise in the media and then if it gets hits on a blog, they run back to their computers and write an entire article. Or, and this may not be true, but i know for a fact ESPN coaches their on air people, they COACH their "journalists" to create that kind of a premise and to post the article.

    I can't wait for the day somene sues over defamation or slander because a journalist got cute with a word choice or a sentence. I think that will help fend off this crap in the future.

    It's gotten completely out of hand even just in the last 5 years.

     




    u think everything has gotten "out of hand" in the last 5 years...OLD MAN

    generation x is turning gray...doo dah doo dah

    Pretty contradictory.  You label him ESPN-like.  So, when it's on ESPN, it's the entire organization, but when it's in the ProJo, it's the individual.

    I think it is clear that the Pats have tried earnestly to avoid unrepentant thugs. Yet, in recent years that standard has been crumbling a bit because of BB's poor drafting. Because of so many misses on draft day he has absolutely become desperate to field a team that Brady can bring to a SB win before Brady retires.

     

    I also believe it is evident that a real GM should be brought in and BB should just be HC. I have to believe a real GM would have nixed the spygate behavior at least when the memo came out. And a new guy might have avoided the poor drafting and thus avoided the desperate accumulation of bargain basement bad boys.

    RESPONSE: Stop it. Just because BB took a chance on Aaron Hernandez with a mid-fourth round pick, and took a guy (Dennard) who they knew had criminal charges pending against him, in the middle of round 7...you have come to this conclusion? Sounds like standard operating procedure for most NFL teams.

    I also believe it is evident that a real GM should be brought in and BB should just be HC. I have to believe a real GM would have nixed the spygate behavior at least when the memo came out. And a new guy might have avoided the poor drafting and thus avoided the desperate accumulation of bargain basement bad boys.

    RESPONSE: Hindsight is always 20/20. No one could have foreseen that ignoring an NFL memo on positioning of cameras from the commissioner would lead to $750,000 in fines, and the forfeiture of a first round draft choice. As for the poor drafting, I'll grant you that. For the most part, the 2006, 2008, and 2009 drafts, in particular, were horrible. But...despite the Hernandez happening, the 2010 draft was solid..the 2011 draft was okay, and the jury is still out on the 2012 and 2013 drafts.

         No doubt, the drafts could have, and should have, been better. But, understand that some excellent trades made by GM Bill put the Pats in great drafting position, and gave the Pats tons of picks. Unfortunately, on many occasions, BB has picked the wrong guys. Furthermore, he has developed the annoying habit of spending a top 100 pick each year on a major reach.

         But, because of the good trades made, I don't think that a new GM is necessarily the answer. Rather, a draft consultant appears to make more sense...provided that BB listens to him.  Being both head coach and the GM of an NFLteam might be too much of a job right now, for anybody.

    The Pats do need to be accountable for their part in the AH situation. They selected him, they signed him to a big deal, they are responsible for checking people out.

    They simply need to apologize for what they are accountable for (knowing about his background). They screwed up but they are not alone. University of Florida and Urban Meyer screwed up as well.

    It is not the end of the Pats, it is not the end of the Patriot Way. It is simply an invitation for more self knowledge and to decide how differently they are going to go forward in the future. If the Pats are humble,  stay on message about what they are accountable for and what they will do differently in the future, they will win more respect and fans in the long run.

    Is Bill Belichick even in this country? It was reported that after the minicamp he went to Croatia to search out his familys history. I would think that would be a trip that takes a lot of planning, was coordinated with all of his childrens schedules, is probably time consuming (he wasn't driving to the Cape for a week and these guys only get 3-4 weeks a year of free time for family), and probably doesn't lend itself to a lot of intense media scrutiny. I doubt Borat was there waving a microphone at him trying to get comments about Hernandez. And I'm sure BB, if he is still on vacation, is pretty glad he was away when this all happened, based on his normal press conferences.
