Shula's face-saving PR blitz kicking in
I received this via e-mail today after logging a complaint with Don Shula's web site a couple days ago. Nothing new but it's interesting they made this effort to appease the complaints:
Dear Sports Fan,
The following is an excerpt from an interview conducted by Mike and Mike in
the Morning on ESPN regarding the New England Patriots.
We hope this clarifies any confusion.
The Shula Team
Shula told ESPN's "Mike and Mike in the Morning" on Thursday that if the
Patriots finish with a perfect record to match that of his 1972 Dolphins,
then there "shouldn't be any attachment to it," referring to a possible
asterisk next to New England's name in the record books.
"If they run the table, and they win all the games, then they are doing it
within the rules of the National Football League," Shula said. "And there
shouldn't be any asterisk to it. That would be the accomplishment that they
made. It would be the best in all of sports."
Shula also said if New England can finish the season with an unblemished
record, the Patriots "will deserve to be called the best team."
When asked if he expected Patriots coach Bill Belichick to take his call if
New England were to have an undefeated season, Shula said he hoped so.
Shula said that he has known both Belichick and his late father for many
years, dating back to the elder Belichick's days at the Naval Academy.
