    "Who had it first" used to matter when we relied on the newspaper or the TV for our news.  If Newspaper A had a story before everyone else, it would take at least one more day for the rest of the papers to catch up.  If Channel 4 had the breaking story at the 6pm news, Channels 5 and 7 couldn't deliver the info until at least the 11pm broadcast.

    Now?  Twitter Guy A tweets.

    Five minutes later, 7,000 retweets.

    We criticise the media for good reason but I've never heard a bad word about Adam Schefter.

    There is no better NFL insider than Adam Schefter.

    Schefter is good, no doubt about that. But your other 'Brady Will Play' thread where you repost a tweet is why people people are down on the media. "Sources say Brady will practice and play"... "pending re-examination." Since he doesn't cite his 'sources', that is basically the same as "Uhhhhh, I gotta post something so I look credible. I'm guessing Brady might practice tomorrow and play in Fridays game based on what I heard Joey say at the bar last night, but I'll cover myself in case he doesn't so no one can say I didn't do my job". YAY!! ESPN had that first!!

    Understand your criticism, but that does not happen with any credible source such as ESPN, BDC or Sports Ill and the like

     

    I take it 100% the opposite of your take on it...."unnamed sources" when ESPN reports it means the info is from the inside, and the supplier of the info does not want his job on the line. It could even mean BB threw the fans a bone and "leaked" the info. 




    You mean like the time Tom Jackson proclaimed that BB had lost the entire Patriot locker room by letting Lawyer malloy go?

    To be fair ESPN has some really good reporters but the majority of their programming has become the TMZ of sports.

    It is to bad because guys like Bob Lee are very good at their trade.

    All this tweeting and retweeting is for the birds IMO. I'm getting to the point in life I'd rather live in the country all the time and get away from technology   Something to be said about homesteading lol. Twitter to me is like Wikipedia.  How do you know the info is accurate ?  It's like in grade school when you whisper a rumor in one persons ear and by the time it gets around the room it's completely different   The way the pats are I don't trust any of it. Brady had 600 lbs of meat fall on him. That has to hurt some. But the guy plays hurt every year, he's not going to sit on the bench unless they make him. 

     

     

    Now you got the easy part done telling me about it.

    Does that handshaped bruise on your back hurt?

    Most local media cull their "original" ideas from this website and the fans... usually something starts here and a day later finds its way into an article.
