    I hadn't realized this until I read the tidbit in Reiss' Blog today when he was talking about Tedy's Locker being untouched..

    All the haters claim the Pats have no class.. Sorry, but when an organization puts up a case with the guy's jersey in it as a memorial to him. That is class.

    A nice tribute. I think alot, if not all of the teams would have done this also.

    I wish you guys could let this class stuff go.

    By reducing the Marquise Hill memorial to an internet rebuttal you are hardly doing his memory any service.

    All folks are doing is commenting on the classy moves and remembering people who made commitments to the organization. The problem is that in the past the class of the organization has been question albeit by people who's opinions really don't matter much...Folks are proud to be associated with the team. When people insult the team, they in a roundabout way, insult them. It's only natural.

    It's only a problem if you let it bother you. We're rehashing a discussion stemming from postgame comments LdT made like 18 months ago.

    It's probably time to move on to beating a new dead horse.

    I'd rather they win than be classy. The SD SuperChargers are the classiest professional sports team in the history of mankind and are lead by the classiest NFL player of all-time. But who wants to cheer for 8-8 class ? Not me.

    Rather win and be thought of as non-classy (even though we know it's bull). Give up the classy caring and let's get onboard with the winning. Like a guy from my village once said : there's first place, then f-all.

    Good thing they aren't mutually exclusive options.

    I don't think any Pats fan cares what other fans think of them at this point. But it's nice to root for a team that not only knows how to win but also knows how to honor players like Marquise who don't get a chance to stick around and see their kids grow up. It's a wonderful gesture and it's nice to see some proper perspective in the tunnel vision world of the NFL.

    No... but that is often the perception. And whe it comes to the NFL, BB and the Pats are SEEN as classless, even though there are many examples to the contrary. I'll amend : rather have the Pats seen as classless, but win than thought of as classy and lose.

    No Jersey Selected

    Have you ever made a post in your life that isn't a whiney, sniveling *****fest?

    Anyway, Tedy is a true leader. While I accept that he is retired, I do have a suspicion that he will go to the now infamous Shadow Roster. Leaving his locker untouched might be a good idea in the event that a huge rash of injuries to the defense happen again this year (God I hope not).

    Even if we don't have a huge rash of injuries, I'd love to see Tedy back. Sounds like it was a nagging leg injury that got him to retire- with some time for that to heal up, he could maybe come back strong and give us a few good games to end the season and make a playoff push.

    If Tedy doesn't make a return to playing I do hope to see him in some level of coaching for the Pats. He's a well respected leader who still can help the team out defensively even if its being a coach.

    Listen, Fnord. If you don't know what you are talking about, please don't chime in. It had NOTHING to do with the comments by Tomlinson. It had to do with comments more recent than than. Comments in the last couple of weeks. So, now how do you feel?
