    God, I'll never get over the ridiculous penalty handed down to the Pats for "spygate". Took away a 1st rounder!?!? WTF! Can't wait to here what Belichick says on the subject when he's finally out of football because you know him and Kraft will forever hold a grudge against that tool of a Commish.

    Great to see this stuff floating around.

    Does anyone remember hearing, after Belichick was hired here, about how during the Parcells fiasco he and Kraft somehow ended up in a car together in the stadium parking lot and talked for a long time? I thought I heard t what point that that was when BB really impressed Kraft, who knew then he would make a good coach for his team.

    Maybe just my imagination. Anyone?

    This was discussed recently on Patsfans.com and the meeting was referenced by a NY Jets beat writer who wrote a book that was a bit of a hit job IIRC and the link was to a radio show in NY......

    OK, thanks. I know the whole situation has been discussed a lot, I just didn't recall anything about that conversation specifically in a car at eh stadium.

    Thanks.

    This absolutely happened. I remember reading exactly that but I don't remember who it was who put it out - it was definitely a Boston writer around the time it all went down.

    I remember because I thought Belichick was a joke and I was elated that they were going to someone like Pete Carroll instead of a washed up Parcells guy from Cleveland. I thought 'whew, dodged a bullet' after reading about that car ride, so happy I was that Kraft didn't hire that bum Belichick.

    Yeah, I'm pretty great at picking winning football coaches.

    I remember them getting into a car together. They showed it on the news stations. IT was probably Wednesday or Thursday after the SB 31. Foxboro had a bomb threat and everyone evacuated and they got into a car together.

    That;s the first I'd heard of the bomb threat but it makes sense and here's a Google link to it.....

    I was the one who mentioned that. It wasn't in the book by the NY writer Myers.

    I may be dumb and say stupid things, but for some bizarre reason I was blessed with a memory that let's me recall things written in a Boston Globe story 16 years ago.

    Reporters noticed Kraft and Belichick talking in a car outside the stadium for over 2 hours.
