    Borges wanted to cuddle but BB told him to lose 50lbs and get a face lift first

    because he made borges look like a fool when borges heavily criticized Bill for drafting Seymour and Light, while passing on the excellent pro bowler David Terrell.  

    yes its probably archived somewhere. borges is a moron.

    Borges is a negative dude, thinks he's telling it like it is but it's clear he has it out for BB or anyone else who's p'd him off.  Don't know why, must be some behind the scenes stuff where BB made him look stupid in a press conference.  Borges tried to keep up his criticisms during the superbowl run but I noticed every week that he picked the Pats to win, unless it was agianst the Colts because of his love for Dungy.

    Why the grudge? What happened to objective reporting?
    Posted by CallMeMrFrank


    Frank- This grudge goes back to when BB left the Jets to come here. Ron Borges was one of the many reporters that Bill Parcells had wrapped around his little finger. When BB left the Jets to come here it was perceived as a stab in the back by Belichick to Parcells. Interesting that that was the way Parcells had done business his whole career as a coach and was so smitten by this breakup that he put the word out to all his inside buddies that BB was a scoundrel. Borges hasn't let up since day 1 and no matter what different excuses he uses that is the real reason. If you remember back to when BB kept Bledsoe on the bench in favor of Brady, Borges almost had to be restrained at a press conference because he didn't like BB's answer as to why he made the switch. ("Tom Brady is the Starting quarterback of the NE Pats this week").Kevin Manix was just as hateful in his columns( "BB is Duplicitous Pond Scum") along with many others that were buddies with Parcells.
    That's it in a nutshell.

    aside from his cross-sport shot at perk...what exactly did he say that isnt true?

    the pats have holes and they didnt really go out and get anyone...which means they are essentially hoping to have a good draft...in other words...the guy needed to take up space in an article and wrote something that is for argument's sake, true...sue him

    In Response to Why is Borges so negative about Belichick?:
      By Ron Borges/Boston Herald ..."What’s most likely in the most critical draft Belichick has faced since his second year in Foxboro is that he opts for volume. Belichick is well aware the draft, even at its best, is a crapshoot and lately he’s been crapping out despite what his apologists have tried to suggest about the team’s recent selections. The Pats have missed more often than Kendrick Perkins [ stats ] at the foul line since the second round of 2004, but the beauty of having four of the top 53 picks in this draft is that you have a lot more chances than most to be right. Considering all the ammunition they possess, and all the misfires of the 2005-08 drafts, this had best be a draft in which the Patriots shoot straight and shoot often."

    They certainly haven't missed that much. They haven't been crapping out. Outside of Chad Jackson where are these misfires? Unless Borges thinks they need to hit every 4th rd olus pick.

    Re: Why is Borges so negative about Belichick?

    Suggesting that recent Pats' drafts have been less than stellar is not a take casual fan is going to argue with (although he would have a case, if he chose to make it), so that's an easy (lazy) way to fill up an article about the draft that has already been written a thousand times -- so in that sense, both russ and Jimmy42 are correct (russ is also right about Borges' prowess as a boxing scribe -- back when boxing was relevant). Clearly Belichick is not a guy who makes a "journalist's" job any easier, and that's a sports reporter's first hurdle. When I was training to be a journalist, everybody started in sports because sports is full of archetypes and cliches and every story has been written over and over again. The stories almost never write themselves (the way a crime story or a fire will, for instance), and you have to learn how to craft something interesting to read out of something that has happened a million times. If the explosion of "pundits" produced by the internet age has taught us anything, it's that this is not as easy as it sounds.

    For a guy like Borges, who doesn't appear to want to do any more work than is absolutely necessary -- to include, on occasion, not even bothering to come up with his own thoughts, hackneyed as they may be -- Belichick is a nightmare. He's says essentially the same thing no matter what happens and appears entirely emotionally disconnected. This undoubtedly exacerbates whatever grudges may have been held over from the previous administration and, coupled with Borges' apparent lackadaisical approach to his job, creates what looks like a negative spin -- when all it really is is slipshod journalism.

    although he would have a case, if he chose to make it

    He hasn't got much of a case outside of maybe 2006.

    2005 Mankins, Hobbs, Kazur, Sanders, Cassell
    2006 Maroney, Thomas, Gostkoswki (Chad Jackson)
    2007 draft yielded only Merriweather  However trades yeilded Moss, Welker and the #1 SF pick.  Other picks were 4th and lower.
    2008 Mayo 5 of 7 on the team
    2009 all still on the team.

    Re: Why is Borges so negative about Belichick?

    "Why Is Ron Borges So Negative About Belichick?"

    By far the easiest way to answer this question clearly would be through the use of some cryptic & ambiguous turn-of-phrase...  Like, for instance-EVERYone's heard of the famous Quixote axiom, Quixote's was based metaphorically originally off what that Jesus fellow said somewhere some time, to some disciple dude, THE Phrase being:  "It's like the pot calling the kettle black."  Each and everyone knows this, right?  The idea that the specific criticism one is giving to another person, could be equally applied to that person themself...  Well now, just throw that right out the window, o.k.?  Because Borges and Belichick trully have little to nothing in common...Unless perhaps, Borges is saying something akin to, "Hey, that Sporting Guru mainstream famous icon is a little overweight, and since I am too, I could really be in his shoes."  But seriously, that's as far as it goes...  

    So alright, bad addage...my bad.  Maybe a far more fitting addage would be the famous quip about how "Familiarity Breeds Contempt."  For those that are so immersed in that other's world, said first person ends up despising those intricacies and meaningless foibles that which should be endeared or perhaps even respected by most others.  O.k.?  I'd like to point out here, that in at least the Borges vs Belichick case, this has even less relevancy than my first failed metaphoric explanation.  Because honestly, It's not like Borges has some innate fine-tuned grasp on the intricacies of a Bill Belichick brain, or he!!, I'm somewhat unceratin that Borges himself doesn't know what sport Belichick even coaches in...  Lol, so forget this as an explanation.

    So o.k., 1 last time...  WE can always count on good ole Aesop to offer a little perspective...  Here:  The story of the fox and the crow.  I'm sure you ALL remember it quite well, but I'll paraphrase anyway...Fox sees a Crow fly of with a sweet morsel of cheese.  Fox wants cheese.  So the fox flatters the crow about how beautiful the crow's voice and singing is, and the Crow jumps and begins Caw-ing.  Fox then makes off, boosting the cheese the mor#n egotistical & gullible crow dropped when opening his mouth.  So now, HOW does this relate to Borges vs Belichick?  Well, Borges is the guy who shot the fox using 37 hunting dogs, so Borges could eat both the cheese and the fox...and a few of the hunting dogs.  Borges is far too lame to be able to hit a crow, and although He eats just a ton of crow, Borges just steals the crow from his neighbor's smokehouse, and never fesses up to doing so.  And Belichick?  He's outta the picture.  Pretty good & relavent tale I fit in here, huh?

    Re: Why is Borges so negative about Belichick?

    The other part of this is that the Pats locker room used to leak like a sieve in the Grier/Carroll era.  If players did not like what they heard from Carroll, they would go running up the back stairs to Grier who would dry their eyes and give them milk and cookies.  It would eventually make its way to Borges who had a job with no heavy lifting in that regime. 

    When BB came he shut all that back channel stuff down, so Borges had to work for a living. That combined with the apparent diss on Parcells and Ron and his man-love for BP exploded. Borges had to resort to plagirization when having to actually develop sources and write to earn his money became too difficult.

    Borges = known plagiarist.  Even if he has an opinion, he has to steal the writing from someone else.
