    I call Bullchit on this clown even working for the Pats, but it's worth a read. Please feel free to go flame away on his little rag of a blog. :disagreement:

    Says...

    Bruschi is a jerk who is actually hated by many of his teammates in the Lockerroom.

    Gun to his head answer would be that he Pats DID tape the Rams walkthrough.

    Belichick has a sex tape, with his ex-mistress.

    Welker has a Groin injury more serious than anyone is letting on.

    This is not worth a read, some loser yapping on some no name site. A buddy of mine was PO'd because Maroney hit on his wife last year at Becket's bowl for charity event. He did it solo so it wasn't for show. Yeah I bet Hobbs and Welker never play a game this year, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

    "However, he's been nothing but a class act since coming to the Patriots. He's actually one of the nicest guys I've come across."

    I didn't cover him then? What a curious statement from someone who worked for or played with the Patriots.

    From the next statement, it sounds like this is a writer, not an ex-employee.

    Hmmmmm...

    Is there a Patriots beat writer who would like to take some slaps while vouching for the Matt Walsh taping scenario?:confused::confused:

    I believe that is Tom Casale.

    He just left PFW as a Pats employee to join a gambling site, providing insight and commentary.

    The opinions line up.

    I am very surprised he dumped all that stuff "the day he walked out." Unnecessarily classless. Anyone can say "I didn't like all the people I worked with. Some were real jerks." Doing it the day you leave on an Internet site isn't very high-minded.

    I really don't see the big deal here even if this is 100% truth. So Bruschi and a few other guys might not be what they portray themselves to be and the coach/head guy is a miserable guy who took a turn as a porn star. Hell, I've heard McGinest called a lot worse by friends of mine who knew him from his college days.

    The 'article' makes the Patriots locker room sound like every dorm and/or frat I've ever been to or lived in. Is anyone really surprised to see Dillon called out? Does BB being called miserable really shock anyone given past coverage of the man?

    Bottom line: as long as they don't make us watch a BB porn flick, who gives a damn?

    Yeah, I'm sure the Pats hire writers who can't write properly and use phrases like this:

    Pretty hilarious stuff.

    ummm, the welker comment, and spygate comments arent there. either that, or im tired, and incapable of reading:D

    what i did read isnt all that surprising. as far as tedy is concerned, well, they say never meet your heroes, you'll be disappointed. could be the case here, but i hope not.

    Well folks.. Im sure the hype machine now that is pfw in progress wont comment on this since they hate this site, with the exception of Paul Perillo who is very objective and professional.. But if you listen to the show it was tom casalle, and not to defend him, he did mention last week as well as all the guys how tedy bruschi is to others and its all hype , which I dont care, I never met tedy personally, and my opinion is always the same of him, hard working , heart of gold, and leave it at that. He also has mentioned that he hated corey dillion with a passion.. If you listen to past shows he has mentioned that.. The show used to be good, but then they started with this lunch thing about buying lunch for the guys, and people did it, so I chime in the show from time to time ,and still listen to it, because its the same reason I come to this site, its about the Pats, but then it became the andy hart tom show about themselves, and beg buy people to buy jay cutler and mendenhall jerseys. Report about the pats and leave it at that..

    With that said, you have to be naive not to think this was tom casale that posted it, because today was his last day.. And he has had some personal problems. With that being said, I hope he does well in Vegas, because if it does not and hopes to come back to pfw in progress, there is only one other person in the bost media that is more unpopular than him, and he works for the herald..

    I do think its poor taste in how to trash the orgainization, like Belichick sex tape, and the spy gate thing, which I dont see posted any more in this blog. Fred gave this guy a good life for 3 yrs, and some of the people listen to became fans of his, but not only is he trashing the organization , he is trashing fred, who will take heat for this guy now.. Because everything is under a microscope with the pats, even if alot of this BS is not true.

    The Pats have keep things close to the vest since this whole crapgate, and with this ex bonehead spouting off, his former people that he called friends and co workers are going suffer if this becomes big. Some stuff like Mcgnisst and Dillion being jerks, and maybe Tedy Bruschi blew you off a few times. Big deal, to trash Belichick and come up with stuff like that is like slaping Fred the guy that hired you, in the face, because he is a big deal in the orgainization.

    Tom Casale is proving to himself he needs more attention in life, and is very sad.. The way he trashes a fan on Mrs B for showing her passion in life which alot of us have, then proceeds to come off as a bitter employee, he names alot of ex pats that are nice to him.. Surprise Willie Mcginnist was a jerk, something we did not see for ourselves.. I hope all the fans that listen to pfw in progress to praise Casale , and give him all this praise see what he is .. A sorry bitter ex employee.. Good luck Vegas, because you burned your bridge..

    Re: (Alleged ) Ex-Pats Employee is running his mouth- Claims serious allegations

    True. It happened to me once and it was one of the worst evenings of my life. On the other side, I once met a politician who is famous for being arrogant and rude who was really charming and patient to talk to.

    But with Tedy the facts are: (1) he plays the game with exceptional energy and exuberance (2) he came back from a stroke to play football (3) he's stayed with the team rather than demand top dollar. That all works for me.

    What I HOPE is that the public image of him as a very loving husband and father is also true.

    This is a) gutless; b) dumb

    Gutless because Casale hasn't got the balls to put his name to it. So he walks out of the organisation that he heas worked for for year, admits that nobody in the organisation did wrong by him, and then takes an anonymous dump over the lot of them. Tool.

    Dumb because was there ever any chance that his identity would not be exposed? Clown.

    Re: (Alleged ) Ex-Pats Employee is running his mouth- Claims serious allegations

    That's the truly sad part, they do.

    Not surprised he referenced and then removed his reference to a Walsh tape. I long presumed that Tomase's source on the existence of a tape whom he trusted enough to put his career on the line when even Felger advised him not to was a member of PFW. Worst in house media corps in the league. On some level they all need help, but none moreso than PFW's own version of Sybil...

    From the comments:

    I was a sportswriter who worked for the team. I traveled with them, stayed at the same hotel and stuff like that. We couldn't report much but we know a lot going on with the team. The thing about Bruschi is very few people like him. The only ones that do are the fans and that's because he does a great job of being a fake. But his teammates don't buy his act. I'll give the guy credit, he's smart. You have to respect that.

    The only writers who traveled with this team were from PFW.

    Very interesting. I go to the link and this supposed post is not there.
    The link is gone too. Very interesting indeed. I wonder what happened? :confused:
    I think that this "Blogger" is full of ****, but that's just my opinion. I don't believe everything I read. Tomase took care of that.

    The writing is exceptionally pathetic. If indeed it is a writer, did their qualifications arrive via Africa on camelback?

    Re: (Alleged ) Ex-Pats Employee is running his mouth- Claims serious allegations

    Yeah I checked it out. I also checked his bio. NO INFO AVAILABLE. :rolleyes:
    And he hasn't posted there much. All of his other posts are about Baseball.
    Again, I don't believe a word of that blog. IMHO, it should have been left where it was. Somebody needs to do some research and expose this fella.
    I bet he thought that no one would find his post. He posted the friggin thing on a website for gamblers. Go to the main page of that website. It's all about gambling. You guys are lucky that I'm not a MOD. This thread would have been wiped out the minute that I saw the website that it came from. :rolleyes:

    Hey, at least this time he's used a male handle... Here he was AllisonlovesBrady, among others. Wasn't he IamRonBorges too? He's a sick puppy in more ways than one. You'd think he'd have better things to concern himself with at this point, like just staying alive.

    I could care less where he went. I never liked him. He thought that he was funny and clever. He SUCKED, IMO. Again, that's just my opinion. I didn't believe everything that I heard from him when he was here and I don't now. Assuming of course, that this "blogger" is Tom Casele. Well if it is, he's found a way to get us to visit the site and give it some attention. This post sure will do that, whether it's true or not. I hope that he has a good LAWYER.

    In reading some of "Tommy Rider's" other posts, he mentions in one that he grew up "a Cowboys fan", and his two of his favorite athletes of all time were Cowboys (Tony Dorsett and Emmitt Smith). Did Casale have such a connection to the Cowboys? Just curious.

    By the way, in another of this guy's posts, he says he grew up in NY, but was a big Cowboys fan.

    The guys who posts also says, when asked what his role was with the team: "I was a sportswriter who worked for the team. I traveled with them, stayed at the same hotel and stuff like that. We couldn't report much but we know a lot going on with the team. The thing about Bruschi is very few people like him.

    Re: (Alleged ) Ex-Pats Employee is running his mouth- Claims serious allegations

    It is obviously Casale. He has always been unprofessional. I lost all respect for the guy with the Mrs. B incident. We know a lot of reporters read these boards, but none lack the professionalism other than Casale to trash a poster because she wrote better training camp reports than him.

    Bruschi was probably an arse to him because he knew the type of scum he was. Same with Vrabel. Even on the radio, he always seemed to come off as smug.

    Granted he is leaving journalism so he can write this stuff without risk of damaging his reputation, but his actions on this board and on that site are why he never got a job in a real publication (No offense to Andy Hart and the rest of the PFW staff) and is leaving the industry all together.
