    That f'n jerk Collinsworth telling the Jets how to play sundays game.
    They hate the Pats with all their soul.
    Including that little queen Costas.

    Yeah....that was brutal. Even the little midget Costas chimed in at the end of Collinsworth's "injure them" rant. Costas "I hope you're right".

    And this is different from how the Patriots played other high powered offenses (especially Rams in the SB) how?

    Get over it. While coaches won't say "hurt them" word for word, they'll certainly emphasize toughness, physical play, etc.

    I didn't see it, so maybe it was too over the top, but it seems like folks are a little sensitive...

    We talked a lot about hitting them hard and wearing them down, but never about making them bring their friggin' DOCTORS into the game. There's a big line there.

    The Patriots are 13-0 in dominating fashion, what do you want them to do, its an entertainment show, they were role playing, Chris Carter's turn as Belichick was also entertaining. The Patriots are finishing off the greatest professional sports season ever which could never be surpassed, duplicated, possibly, but unlikely. Sit back and enjoy the ride!

    Exactly. I was astonished at that last night.

    Here is a commentator, under contract to HBO (NFL Films) and NBC which has a contract with the NFL, calling (under the protective guise as "I'm playing Mangini") for the Patriots team Doctor to have to get on the field "at least five times, or else I'm cutting all of you tomorrow". He also said words to the effect that 'I don't care if we win or not, you're number one priority is to just hurt them'.

    He was practically salivating.

    I must say it was a very inspirational speech and he DID blow Chris Carter out of the water with it.

    However, it was very questionable as for appropriateness. If ANY Patriot is hurt this Sunday, the question would be whether it was a "mob hit" or not. Methinks Goodell would look askance at someone under contract (directly or indirectly) to the NFL actively contributing to that type of mindset.

    I love how the media was gushing over the Colts when they were 13-0 a couple of seasons ago when Peyton Manning was going to break Marino's record.

    Now the Pats are in danger of breaking that Colts team's records and they're calling for somebody to take out Tom Brady and Randy Moss. If they were doing it tongue in cheek that'd be one thing but they're serious.

    The media F'ing sucks. Let the BB FU Tour continue. Embrace the hate!

    He is advocating injuring players under the "play acting" guise of being Mangini?

    This is about as low as it gets. Mangini should come out with a statement saying that he finds that disturbing and that he would never, ever, say anything like that to his players. If Mangini doesn't, he's even a bigger turd than he is now.

    I registered my complaint with HBO.com about this segment. I wish I had done the same earlier with the Washington Post when Michael Wilbon suggested that opposing teams should target Brady's knees. Media SANCTION of player injury should be rejected vehemently by the public.

    I just sent a message to HBO with my resignation to their subscription. And I also let them know how I felt about their Inside the NFL show, not only this week but in general.
    This is getting way out of hand, those pompous asses on that show are idiots anyway, so good riddens.
    I'm hoping enough New England people can write to HBO and threaten cancellation of their show unless there is a public apology or comment in regards to urging harm to players on that program.

    Ya know, I understand the natural way people want to see the one on top tumble, but there is genuine hatred brewing out there for the Patriots and I just don't get that part!:eek:

    I agree with all the outrage above. I can hardly believe this really happened! I actually like Collinsworth (liked?), who was the first Sunday Nighter to suggest the Pats could be the best team ever (or was it the first to suggest 16-0, I forget). We should all pressure for an apology. What are we teaching our kids? Goodell, let's see what you're made of.

    Collinsworth should be suspended for advocating one team injuring another. I can't believe HBO,and NBC haven't said something to him about this,and previous statements. What he's saying is outrageious. :mad:

    Has Costas ever not mentioned how 'if' the Colts had..............they would be undefeated. Every segment I've watched, he always mentions that the Colts were a couple of plays away from an undefeated season. Bob, Manning threw six interceptions in San Diego. 'If' the Chargers make a couple of plays its a blowout. Maybe its a rating thing, but they also keep mentioning how much of an advantage Indy will have going into the Razor (the two teams roles have been reversed).

    Don't be surprised if a key player gets taken out on a dirty hit.Mangini is desperate to save face.And when/if it happens he will get some sort of justification from the media.Their is already an undercurrent from the media that it is OK to do anything to derail the Pats, and the media is already suggesting that a dirty hit would just fine and will spin to being belichicks fault.

    That is friggin outrageous, even for a rag-arse show like ITNFL!

    I stopped watching that show about 10 years ago...it's horrible...you get about 3 minutes of highlights and 57 minutes of talking heads and human interest stories and stuff..

    Awful!

    Back in the day, you got like 2-3 minutes on each game...

    They never should have let Len Berman go!

    I think Costas is dating Ladanian Tomlinson. Ever since he did his in-depth interview of LT, he's treated him like he's some saint of the NFL....not the crybaby he is.

    Costas is worse than collinsworth...IMO

    I did,to bad I dumped HBO years ago then I could at least threaten them with something tangible.

    Chris Collisworth should be suspended for advocating that one team injure another.(I.E. the Jets injuring the Patriots this Sunday) Its totally irresponsable, and reprehensible. And the same could be said off HBO if it continues to allow themselves to be used as a platform for Collinsworth to spew his hate and venom towards the Patriots.

    I know it won't do any good, but I wrote in anyway...

    Transcript of my message below:


    "Dear HBO:

    Regarding the most recent edition of Inside the NFL...

    As I have watched this show decline over the years from a top notch NFL highlights show to a talking heads panel show, I have nonetheless always been comfortable with the journalistic integrity of the show - until last night.

    Cris Collinsworth suggesting that one NFL team intentionally try to injure players from another NFL team is just irresponsible and outrageous!

    "The team doctor better be on that field five times..."

    Are you kidding me?

    I would not be surprised if both the Jets and Patriots lodge formal complaints and demand that Collinsworth issue an apology or face a suspension.

    Don Imus loses his job for a racial slur and Collinsworth gets to continue to earn and work after advocating injury and the threatening of careers?

    Imus was live; Collinsworth was on tape. How could the editors of the show let this segment even make it to the cable?!?!

    HBO has a choice to make here - reprimand Collinsworth and demand a public apology or look like complete idiots in the eyes of serious sports and NFL fans.

    I also have a choice to make - with all the other premium movie channels available, should I even keep HBO?

    Regards,
    Armen Zeytoonian
    Long-time HBO subscriber through Cable & DTV"

    I can't stand either of them (Costas has always been a little annoying but I've hated that little puke ever since his interview with Goodell about Spygate earlier this year). I think writing HBO is a good idea but we should probably also write to Reiss/Tomase/Curran and even Kraft, who may be a able to spread to the word more easily. It's one thing to show your bias like Ditka but to advocate injuring players is WAY over the top. This is our chance to get back at that pencilneck p*ssy!

    Copy of the letter I sent to HBO

    I undestand that Chris Collinsworth was only acting the part of Eric Mangini in ITNFL's Play the Coach segment. However the content of his monologue contained sentiments that are both irresponsible and reprehensible. This might have escaped condemnation if the rest of the crew (Marino, Carter and Costas) applied journalistic and sportmanship values in criticizing Collinsworth's pitch. The fact that they cheered and repeated a belligerent refrain only added to the irresponsibilty. Marino and Costas were not acting a part, they were exhibiting their personal opinions on the performances and the content. No-one should ever advocate injuring another player in any sport ESPECIALLY on National TV. HBO has a moral duty to apologize to the sporting world for the conduct of the participants and producers of this sporting travesty.

    I look forward to a swift rectification of the matter.
