Let me summarize so people don't give this hack any more clicks.
Giselle is part of the Patriots organization, and because she said something that shows that "Patriots Way" is crumbling. She was supposed to just let Giants fans give her crap and not say anything, and not care whether her husband's team won or lost. Bill Belichick should have taught her that in the heat of an emotional moment she should have known that someone in the private suite would be recording everything she said without her knowledge; it is his fault the video was released.
Players after a loss are supposed to wallow in self pity, especially at a private, invite-only event for players and a relatively small number of close friends and family. To do anything else is proof that the "Patriot Way" is crumbling. The fact that Bill Belichick did not screen attendees with more scrutiny to insure that the video did not get leaked is proof that he's losing it. Everyone should have had to go through a metal detector and be forced to check their cellphones at the door, apparently. Once again it is Belichick's fault that the video was released.
Belichick should not say anything to any of his players during the course of the game, give them directions, or any advice. He should tell NFL Films that they are not allowed to mic him for the Sound FX series. Nobody would ever say anything bad about him for refusing to be mic'd for the game, right?
Oh yes, and it's also Belichick's fault that a Denver fan dumped the Butterfingers in Copley Square for that classless PR stunt.
I'm surprised the writer didn't blame Belichick for mortgage industry collapse, unemployment, and the sinking of that cruise ship while he was at it.
...Most phones have cameras now....Gronk and Light partying and being released on youtube is today's technology personified...It's not a big deal unless you're looking for any story....
So right. Imagine if they had iPhones and the Internet back in the '70s? Probably be some interesting videos and photos of some of the best teams in sports then. Steelers, A's, Yankees, Joe Namath's Jets ... heck, even the Packers of the 60s. Some players on those teams might have partied a bit.
An amusing thing on the Gronk thing is: Once the video got out, only a small percentage of media types criticized Gronk. Most said "no big deal." But now, a week later, the video is described as having "raised eyebrows."
One thing that is definitely working against the Patriots, as has been touched on, is how so many in the national media are New York-based. How can anyone doubt that that and the NY-Bos rivalry shape the coverage and attitude that much of the country sees? Little things like the bit on the upside down rings; also, when (I think it was) Rick Reilly wrote a thoughtful column on mostly media reaction to the SB being over the top, the ESPN.com headline tease was "Sore Losers." Dumb. Crap like that, plus these dime-a-dozen reactionaries like this Reiter clown. Absurd.
