    While granting interviews to other media outlets Belichick and Pioli apparently refused ESPN's request for an interview. Gee I wonder why? :rolleyes: Sorry I thought this was from an ESPN blog ....... Not a message board,although the writter has seemed to be credible in the past. :bricks:

    You will notice that ESPN had no interview with Bill but the NFL network did. ESPN asked and is still basically begging for Bill or Scott.

    I give lots of cred to an internet message board "insider" when the only info the guy gives that can be confirmed is stuff that was already on television, and everything else is uer generated rumor and gossip.

    Reiss reported earlier that ESPN is not at Gillette either.

    OK, lets confirm what we can. Did the NFL Network have a BB/SP interview while ESPN interviewed other teams drafters but the Patriots.

    Yes, the rest is conjecture, but does it fit the facts we know?

    Don't worry about it. I certainly hope that it's true though.

    I doubt his credibility too, but I think he's right on this matter. BB has no time for ESPN.

    It was kind of awkward whenever they sent it over to Brian Billick and he asked BB a question. I don't think those two are particularly fond of each other as evidenced by Daniel Wilcox's interview on Sirius NFL Radio where he said that Billick told his team that he really wanted to beat BB on that Monday night.

    Actually, I think BB and Billick are cool. Remember the week after crapgate, when Billick accused the Jets of cheating. Something about the Jets D line shouting out snap counts or something.

    And I am sure BB can respect Billick wanting to beat him. That's the name of the game.

    There's definitely a mutual respect going. I don't think they're friends like BB and Gruden, Jimmy Johnson, Saban, Meyer etc but they seem friendly.

    I wouldn't doubt it if Beoli do blow off ESPN,I think BB ha done it before after a SB. He refused to be interviewed by them, because of comments made about him earlier that year.

    i wont be surprised if ESPN is funding all the walsh investigation and BB/pats found out about it and might be giving them the finger.
    Also observe, pats play only 1 monday night game this yr which iam sure ESPN wouldve liked more off considering the ratings. Wont be surprised if kraft pulled a few strings on that too.

    I love it and hope they continue the middle finger salute to ESPN and Mortensen and the freaking homo Mike Greenberg and Tom Jackson and Mike Ditka. I hope they told them to go F themselves. ESPN has turned into the freaking Enquirer, allowing their personalities to show their allegiances and biases.

    The more and more I think about it, NFLnetwork would be a wonderful edition to cable. I dont know whats goin on in the war department with all that, but come next season I'll specially order it in support of another channel which can dethrone espn's horrible self. At the very least take some money away from them.
