he sounds like he might have had one too many drinks.
No he doesn't - jeez - listen to this guy, what an awesome owner, we are quite fortunate.
I missed the beggining, but here's what i remember:
-Thinks Moss is a compeitor that wants to win
-BB and Pioli have a track record so you can trust them
-Moss isn't the same person as he used to be...he wants to come here and comform to the patriot way and win (believes he was already that way)
-It's encouraging to see how the pats have changed throughout the years and now top flight players want to come here to play
-AD should have had a franchise tag, but becuase of the salary cap of the ravens the pats could get him....the pats really stole him becuase they should not have been able to get him without giving anything up. (really exited)
-Wished games were starting now, looking forward to the season
-Wished they were still playing in china (wanted to be the first team to play there) and help make the pats a "global brand"
-Spent time with Goodell yesterday. Thinks the NFL doesn't have a major problem, but becuase of the populairity of the league every little things gets a lot of press
-Doesn't want the superbowl held outside the USA...but realizes it may come to that and would prefer Europe over Asia if it happens
-they like to stir the pot and like action so they wanted to see what they can do with the extra space...it's a challenge (about the new patriots place project)
-Myra's a great cook
in the beginning he was slurring his words a little. he might be exhausted but it was just my observation.good interview though.
he just sounded a little tired to me at the beggining of the interview...but sometimes he's that way. He also took the time to call Hill's mom this week and tell her what a great job she did raising him and it was an honor having him on the pats
Good God. So he doesn't have the diction of a broadcaster. That's really not much of a drawback in my mind. Go back and listen to him declare the Tuna "The best coach in modden timesez", if you wanna hear him fully loaded...
He always sounds like he has cotton balls in his mouth, to me, but I wouldn't trade him for any other owner.
Just like Belichick has as much fashion sense as my 6 year old, but I wouldn't trade him for any other coach.
My 5-year-old has amazing fashion sense. Seriously, she puts most adults to shame in that department. No, I wouldn't let her coach my NFL team...but if the cheerleaders need new uniforms they should give her a call. (Not to mention the front office wardroble! Forget the sawed-off hoodie, she would be curing Bob Kraft of his white-collared blue shirts in no time.)
He was eager to play in China because he wanted to make the Pats a global brand but he doesn't want the Superbowl held outside of the US?
Big difference in having a pre-season game in China and having the Super Bowl held in another country.
But it's the whole sentiment about making it an internation brand.
That doesn't mean that they should have a Super Bowl, with American teams, in a different country. To me, the ultimate point of taking the brand internationally is to have teams spring up all over the world. They can they play their championship wherever they want, but our Superbowl is for us.
He always sounds like that. Get a clue.
I heard some of it and if there is ever an owner who "get's it ", it is Bob Kraft.
Think back the the Sullivans, Kiam, and how the franchise was alomost moved. We were very lucky the day Bob Kraft bought the team.
I'm not forgetting the Bobby Grier era but Kraft was smart enough and humble enough to see his mistakes and change his thinking. I don't care if he sounds drunk or is drunk, as long as he keeps doing the right things.
I took it as he wanted to be the first team to play over there....being the first NFL team china is exposed to would probably have a great marketing advantage. The superbowl is very different, although he thinks it will eventually happen
I like when he let the cat out of the bag about the chinese kicker.
I'll bet BB is thrilled....no wonder we rarely hear from him....he's kinda like the embarrassing drunk uncle.
Hey Bobby, keep little Johnny as spokesman...you'll all be better off.
So do drunks.....maybe he's always drunk then?
Imagine 1 billion chinese wearing Patriot NFL Gear. Cha-ching!!! Not to mention Europe. The way to keep the Pats income rising is to expand to new markets. Being the first there to make an impression is worth millions if not billions if played correctly. It also gives his company an in, to the Chinese market.
Well considering he owns the team, I don't think it really matters what BB thinks.
The "embarrassing drunk uncle" who is the sole reason you don't root for the St. Louis Patriots.
Again the idiocy of some within our fan base is beyond logic.
