    You gotta love our coach! or Why does the press hate him?

    "We both want to win. That’s what we’re here for. I mean, both teams are walking out onto the field to come out victorious. Is that a big news story? That something we didn’t know?’’

    Classic Bill politely telling a reporter they're a moron. Priceless

    the press badmouth him because he doesn't give them fodder for their stories.
    and people believe the bad stories that the press write. thus the reputation that he has.

    whether or not i agree with his particular coaching moves or not, or the way he chooses to deal with the press, he always seems to me to be fair, never talks smack about other players or teams, never blames anyone but himself/his team for a loss, etc.

    i wouldn't want anyone else, that's for sure.

    Re: You gotta love our coach! or Why does the press hate him?

    Short answer: The press doesn't like him because he doesn't do their job for them the way, for instance, a guy like Rex Ryan does.

    Slightly longer answer: They don't like him because he makes no secret of his disdain for what they do. It seems to me that Belichcik is almost entirely consumed by what he does. He's a perfectionist who belives that proper preparation and focus can overcome anything. Wags intruding in his domain interrupting his focus and preparation with inane questions is a distraction that he indulges only out of necessity. Personally, I find Belichick's dry wit hilarious, and I'm sure a lot of media members do, as well . . .  but from a practical standpoint, all you get from Belichick are the most mundane coaching cliches. Scribes with inches to fill want bombast and bluster and long rambling quotes they can regurgitate. What they get from Belichick is always what happened on the field and some version of "We've got a lot of work to do."

    I've mentioned this here before, but when I was training in journalism, everybody started in sports, because in sports the same thing happens every day and everyone you talk to speaks in cliche. It forces you to have to learn how to create a compelling story out of very little  . . .  or perish. A guy like Belichick exposes those who either aren't very good at what they do or aren't willing to work hard.

    I'm not sure BB has disdain for the press.  I just think he doesn't like to divulge information that he thinks could be used by his opponents.  If you listen to his press conferences, he can be quite expansive when asked general questions about football history, great players, or even about playing techniques or schemes.  It's just that he'll say nothing significant (and especially nothing bad or controversial) about either his team or his team's upcoming opponents.  That probably drives a lot of reporters nuts because they don't get much to write about relevant to the upcoming games. . . .  But personally, I think BB's press conferences can be very interesting if you want to learn about football in general or if you want to learn about what particular players do well (he won't tell you what they do badly) . . . it's just that he doesn't give much information about the upcoming games.

    Right. He has no problem answering intelligent questions. This answer was given to a question that was not only stupid but was designed to try to get him to respond to something Rex said about going out to kick our azzes Monday. You'd think that by now reporters would know BB doesn't play those games.

    And I don't think BB cares what the press think. As much as some of the sports press feel that they are bigger than the game itself, they dislike BB because in his own quiet way, he brings them back to reality. And they hate that.

    Yes, this an easy answer.

    Everyone has answered it. It's also why they don't tell the whole story with Spygate.

    It's the jealous organization and fan excuse and it's also a perfect platform for the media.

    I agree with this, too. 

    He gave Holley and Halberstam carte blanche access because he respects them. Same thing with Reiss and someone like Tom Curran.

    There are national people like Lombardi, whom he worked over/is friendly with, or a Pat Kirwan, etc, who he respects.

    Someone like Dan Shaughnessy or Chris Gasper are insulted when they don't get 10 lines of juicy quotes when they ask a boneheaded or smart a*s/loaded question.

    Gee, I wonder why?

    I think if these dopes did their homework and asked more tactical, football related questions, they'd get better quotes.

    He does have a sense of humor if you listen to him. I think it's funny that he's friends with Jon Bon Jovi. I guess they have two things in common; football and his music....

    Yep--BB is downright accommodating to the guys who ask smart football questions and don't try to create controversy or ask stupid stuff like whether so and so is injured and gonna play tomorrow . . .

    well guys I gotta tell ya. not to go off topic but on the way in this am I heard on D & C who was voted the number one most facinating and interesting sports figure in boston. to make a long story short, number 10 went to John Henry. number 5 went to our little dynamo of a short stop Dustin Pedroia. and the winner standing in the number one spot is our beloved and greatest coach to ever walk onto a football gridiron.......Bill Belichick.

    so mr rex ryan, put that in pipe and smoke it!

    getting close to noon and almost time for all the BB haters to take their nap.
