Kraft is just sticking with the club he's in. That's what it always comes down to in the end. If a business owner has to choose between the club of other businessmen that he's a member of or his wor more »

He played like shyt in the Baltimore game. The Pats won in spite of him. Good riddance.

I think it's probably scenario #2. The problem is that the equipment guys resorted to self-help, rather than complaining, or letting TB complain, about the ball pressure to the refs and making them a more »

One other thing -- This is not on the players. I don't believe Tommy is guilty -- at least there's no proof of complicity that I find compelling -- and he will go to the mat on this against the leagu more »

Yep, it's a bad day. But I am wondering whether there may not be a culture problem down in Foxboro. McNally was clearly guilty of deflating, and thought he was doing someone's bidding. I don't thin more »

You can't say wth any certitude that a quid pro quo was reached between Goodell and Kraft. I very much doubt Brady will be exonerated by the league. He's going to have to go to court to get his just more »

Yes, a sad occasion. He was great. At least he had a long life.
Posted 05/13/2015 05:15:02 EDT
They are total trolls. I don't know how any Pats fan can listen to those idiots.
Posted 05/12/2015 07:13:46 EDT
Goodell and the league leadership just seem to have lost their minds. I can't believe this suspension will be upheld once it gets through the courts or wherever it goes thru the appeal process. Rem more »

It's amazing how people will go after you because you're good at what you do and are better than they are. That's what's happening to Brady now. People just cannot abide other people's success somet more »

I don't see any way there's a susension based on this evidence, given that Spygate only resulted in fines, and given that the rest of the team, the coaches, and ownership are cleared.

There also doesn't seem to be any evidence that TB told anyone to deflate any bllls to under the required pressures. It sounds like he was often given over-inflated balls and complained about them -- more »

It seems from the little I read on Profootball Talk that Brady wanted the balls more inflated, not less. But maybe I'm misreading it.

Sounds like army basic training.

Six Baltimore officers have just been charged in his death. Charges include 2nd degree murder. How's that for your bous in blue?

Cops in this country are out of control. It's unbelievable that they feel free to keep killing people when they know the whole country is watching and that it will get reported. They just feel immun more »

I think the Sox are gonna be bad this year. They have no offense at all lately. They cannot score. Buchholz gave them a decent outing the other day and it didn't matter - 1 run. I went to the game more »

I hope they bring him back too, and I bet they'll manage to do it.
Posted 03/06/2015 02:44:28 EST
They've got a thread going about acquiring Revis from us, but the competing notion is that they have to acquire McCourty instead. They're all taking about how great their defense will be once McCourt more »

Just re-watched the Super Bowl -- so funny to see those sorehead Seahawks losing their minds after the pick and jumping offsides and starting a melee. Hahahaha. What a great game it was . . .
Posted 02/27/2015 12:22:22 EST
That is sad news. I'm surprised -- he seemed the type to live forever. I'll miss him.
Posted 02/22/2015 08:20:51 EST
I'm still high on this win too. Someone was going around my office building the other day selling Super Bowl photos that had been matted and framed. They had one of "the pick" and I could not resis more »

The Kearse catch was insane. I'm defending Butler, our team hero, here. Butler did a great job defending that pass. It was a crazy miracle that after Butler broke up the pass the ball managed not to more »

If "done" = not a serious contender for the AFC championship, I think they're done. From last season it's safe to say that there are 3 AFC teams that would totally kick their butts in the playoffs: P more »

Mine was normal until just now really, then it became crazy -- it was saying that I had chosen to ignore everyone's posts, so I couldn't read what anyone was saying. I have to click on "Show X's post more »
