IMO: Hey, if Randy was up front and honest with BB, why would BB have any reason not to support Randy?
A classic BB minimalist response designed to get people to move on and not make the player think he's done anything wrong (in BB's eyes) 4 days before a huge game.
Let's talk Chargers!!
Distractions my ass. Nice to see Belichick come out and say this.
Moss said he spoke to Belichick before the Jags game, right? Anyone want to imagine that conversation?
Randy: Coach, I got to tell you something.
Randy: Someone...I mean this girl I know....a friend....she's trying to...you know...there was this accident...
Randy: I think she wants money? And she keeps saying if I don't give her any, she'll ruin me...she'll come out in public with this before the game...
Randy: So...what should I do coach?
Randy: I'm thinking I should just focus on football?
Belichick: *Nods head very slowly*
Randy: Uh, thanks coach.
Belichick: Anytime Randy.
You're right Deb! I can't believe we have 5 or 6 threads going on about the Moss story. We have so many great things going on, but many just love to gossip & speculate. No wonder celebrity shows are so popular the the under 30 generation!
To me, it's not interesting in the least. i could care less what Randy did or didn't do....I don't get it.
Hahahaha, that's great.
Not to mention their conversation probably went exactly like that.
Ofcourse BB supports Randy, we all do........................
Man would I like to have been that dust bunny in the corner of BB's office when Randy walked his 6'4" teradactle frame into the room.
Randy "23 paydirts":
"Hi Coach, I ah.... have something to tell you, not really good news"
"You see, there's this....................."
BB - "Mr. Spit in the face of Maximum Turmoil":
"Hi Randy, nice to see you, grab a seat"
"You look good Randy are you going to go with the full fro or stick with the rows for Sunday?"
"Ah good, you look good either way chief"
"Ah no problem Rand-man, chick's a gold-digger, don't worry about it"
"Now get you a@@ down there and join your band of brothers and family of greatness down on the practice field, they got your back. They've been waiting for you"
Bottom line, NOTHING, NOTHING will get in the way of this team. As a matter of fact, I think this situation, alot like the first time we played the Chargers will bond the team to new levels. If I'm Marlon McCree right now, I'm worried.
I think that you fail to take into consideration the significance of allegations of misconduct which necessitate the involvement of the courts. This includes allegations which have no merit.
You may not be interested in the details surrounding the allegations. You are probably interested in whether these allegations have ANY possible impact, either positively or negatively, on the performance of any members of the team.
As I have written previously, if someone were to make similar allegations against me, I would have a hard time just "ignoring" them.
If someone did this to me, I'd get a tough female friend of mine to kick her butt...plain & simple
I doubt you really mean this. I realize to a certain extent all fans root for the laundry, and we give guys a wide path on a lot of stuff. But to say you don't care if he did something horrible or not is strange to me.
Then you and your female friend would be facing witness intimidation charges. Really now, if someone is going to call the cops once, what makes you think they won't do it again?
I hope that you are not suggesting that Randy Moss take this approach.
Preview of the next BB press conference
Q: Moss seems to be implying that the DV case is extortion.
BB: You would have to ask him about that. My focus this week is on the SD Chargers.
Q: Do you have an opinion on it?
BB I have said everything I am going to say on the matter. My focus is the SD Chargers this week.
Q: Will Moss be available for comment?
BB: That is up to him. My focus this week is on the SD Chargers.
Q: Has this been a distraction at all to the team
BB: My focus this week is on the SD Chargers, that is who we are playing this Sunday. Does anybody have any questions relating to this week football game......No. Thank you everybody.
Glad to see BB addressed this, usually coaches ignore this stuff or say something stupid and somehow it does not go away..
:rofl: LOL HAHA
All we know is there is an allegation. We also know that over the course of the season -- were it not wrong to judge him in the first place -- he's shown class and poise in the face of a lot of naysaying.
He asked one thing, which is that we not rush to judgment.
The very fact that he gives a damn what a fan base thinks speaks volumes.
I'm with him 100%, and I think most Patriots fans feel the same way.
The only thing he has to worry about is if Norv Turner appeals for a restraining order to keep him 50 yards from the San Diego end zone.
I SWEAR I have heard these answers before!
I freaking love Bill Belichick. More than Moss, Bruschi, Troy Brown, and even Brady. I wouldn't say it's what every NFL coach should be, because I am sure people love the St. Dungy's and the Jerry Glanville's of the world. As for me, I will take the coach that cares about football and not the frivilous crap like writing books or making sure they are liked by the media. Rock on, Coach!:rocker:
BB supports Randy, I support Randy. That's how it works in my universe.
That's because you are thinking. Its a stupid story right now, so in order to appreciate it, you need to be, well, stupid. Stop using your brain, and virtually every media story suddenly becomes very interesting.
I'll let it go this time, but try not to be thinking around here again, okay?
I think it's important that a coach stand by his player in that kind of situation. BB has come out and done so, no bones about it. I hope that this case is taken care of properly after the Superbowl, ie dismissed. Just sounds like straight up gold-digging/extortion so far, but I don't know enough of the facts yet to make a proper assessment.
Well let's get back to the football then.
Nice that he said it. Thats a pretty big character to have behind you and it also shows the fans, regardless of whats gone on that Randy's side of things more than likely has credibility.
Way too funny, NEP!!!
I'm not saying I don't care if Moss did something terrible. What I'm saying, is, to pay it any mind now, when he probably hasn't even been served papers, is ridiculous speculation that is unfair to him and potentially distorts the legal process.
Courts issue those orders all the time, and the level of allegations/proof is very low. He should have a right to continue his life, without ...god, I hate to say it...a rush to judgment, like you or I would be able to.
Well here is to hoping its not anything serious. He's been great all season and for this to happen now is unfortunate. I was just trying to get into the next two games (if we make it this week ofcourse!) but now have to look forward to the media garbage regarding Moss and this female.
I really want to support Randy and I'm glad coach does too.
Seems to be the general consensus here, too.
But what I would really like to know is what the hell is this "accident" Randy mentions?
Now the fact that BB has come out in support for him makes me feel better but still...
that was a productive belichick-moss conversation .. Haha...
this randy moss situation could be another rally cry for the pats, gets us more motivated to win even more...
My take on this is the following.
This seems like the classic, BS assault case where person A sues the athlete for money because they are rich. First the story seems like BS, because she didn't call the police, and she waited 9 days or w/e to bring this to the public. Also, if Moss was guilty, wouldn't he have ponied up the 6 figures rather than undergo the scrutiny of being guilty? His playing days would be over likely.
Also, the fact is that if he was guilty, wouldn't he say yeah I did it, I'm sorry, I made a mistake...etc. That reaction would be a LOT LESS than denying it and then having the evidence say that you are guilty. Ala Rodney Harrison.
If Moss is indeed guilty, I will be very disappointed, since he is my favorite player.
Also, with BB having his back, it seems like Moss is right. If BB knew Moss did it, he wouldn't be playing football right now.
I've always believed in Coach Belichick, and if he stands behind Randy, than so do I. There's a saying I firmly believe in, " Don't believe anything you hear, and only half of what you see." I don't want to know what "accident" he's referring to because it's none of my business. All I know is that he's done what he's said he was going to do in regards to playing and the only ones he has to answer to is Coach Belichick, Scott Pioli and Mr. Kraft. If the triumverant says he's cool, than I'm cool.
My apologies! you're right, I don't know what got into me!
