    Borges retires from Globe
    By Globe Staff | May 18, 2007

    Ron Borges, an award-winning journalist with the Boston Globe for 24 years, is leaving the paper to pursue new projects in sports journalism, he announced today.


    Boston.com
    Sign up for: Globe Headlines e-mail | Breaking News Alerts ''I've enjoyed using the forum the Globe has provided me over two decades, but I am excited to step back from the demands of daily sportswriting to try my hand at longer-range projects and other forums,'' said Borges, who is writing a book about the NFL and will continue his work as a radio and television commentator.

    Said Globe sports editor Joe Sullivan, ''Ron has made a major contribution to the sports pages of the Globe. His independent voice will be missed.''

    Borges covered the NFL and boxing most recently for the Globe.


    LYIN' ??? Ronnie must have been told he was fired, or he could resign....
    ;)

    Thinking about the whole series of events, it must have gone down like this:

    - Globe suspends Borges
    - Borges is SERIOUSLY wounded, outraged, etc.
    - Borges decides to quit in a huff. But...
    - He realizes that if he quits under those circumstances, it will look like he was fired rather than stalking off. (Everyone would assume it was one of those phony "accepted the resignation of" deals.) So...
    - Borges decides to hold his tongue, bide his time and return from suspension to write one long, strong, well-researched article about the Patriots as a kissoff. Then kisses off.

    We should have realized he'd never really come back to the Globe. Would you want to return to an employer who (rightly or wrongly) publicly humiliated you?

    Buh-bye, Ron.

    while he is gone, his "writing" is immortal. Case and point:

    "On a day when they [patriots] could have had impact players David Terrell or Koren Robinson or the second-best tackle in the draft in Kenyatta Walker, they took Georgia defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who had 1 sacks last season in the pass-happy SEC and is too tall to play tackle at 6-6 and too slow to play defensive end. This genius move was followed by trading out of a spot where they could have gotten the last decent receiver in Robert Ferguson and settled for tackle Matt Light, who will not help any time soon."

    We'll never really know, and we probably should not expend more than 10 seconds wondering, but I thought the same exact thing you did.

    Cannot recall the last time i disagreed with patch.
    But i think that version is backwards.

    Doesn't it make MORE sense if
    the Globe, not the plagiarist, is the offended and angry party ...
    but the employer ... sensitive, compassionate, and progressive as it yearns to be ...
    arranges to minimize the humiliation to its cherished gadfly
    ... after realizing that they just plain can't take any more of his mischigas ?

    The Globe has offered some of their long time writers retirement severence packages (Eileen McNamara was one who took the package.)

    You probably couldn't take the package if you were on suspension so Bogus had to come back in order to "accept" it.

    Here's a frightening thought. Does this mean that now that he has no one to reign him in we'll hear more of his outrageous crap?

    Borges still writes for MSNBC.com. He takes shots at the Pats from the national stage too. Example...
