    Re: Breer goes back and forth on hernamdez failed drug test count

    Breer is embarrassed because he and Gaspar had a total melt down after day 1 of the draft. They were completely unobjective in their coverage. Now that the pats had a good draft Breer has to find a way to say to BB "you screwed up."

    I remember when everybody here was stoked about how Breer was returning to Boston from Dallas. How things have changed.

    It's sad and pathetic to see Breer go down this path of bitterness. Oh, so now you have 5 unnamed sources instead of 3 and think this piece of "news" will help your story gain credibility? Whatever, man...

    Boy, I sure do love the New England media and their "Sources". If you're gonna say **** about someone like that, and then on top of it, call them a liar, at least put your name out there.

    I would also like to add, that what they are doing is terrible. Next wk. it'll be a Spikes beat down. Let these kids move on from their previous lives and start a clean slate in the NFL. Have any of them killed someone while drunk, stoned, or under the effects of any other drugs? Which one of them has beaten a woman, raped a woman, has over 8 children with 8 different women?

    They haven't done **** since joining this team, so let's not run em out quite yet.

    Oh, and let me just say that I know where Hernandez was coming from. Believe me when I tell you that if you live in Gainesville for any extended period of time, you're going to be smoking the cheeba. There is absolutey jack sh!t to do there. If UF didn't grace that town with it's presence, it would be a podunk farmer's town where the only thing to talk about is the local drought and how skinny the cows are getting.

    Re: Breer goes back and forth on hernamdez failed drug test count

    Meanwhile, sources from 25 other teams confirmed that they had no direct knowledge of any drug tests on Hernandez since acquiring the information would be illegal...and also that the sources from those original 5 teams were lying sacks of poo.

    Also, Jeff Ireland from Miami confirmed that he didn't know about any drug use, but he suspects that Hernandez' mother is a prostitute.

    Matt Walsh issued a statement saying that he had nothing of substance to offer about Hernandez, but he was wondering why nobody calls him anymore.

    Breer is messing with the kids' life and reputation here, he needs to put names on the record or leave it alone. I used to like Breer, but he's becoming another dirt digging scum bag.

    Breer, Gasper, all of these guys have lost their minds.

    Reiss seems like the only one with a level head left. But his work seems really watered down as of late, although I do enjoy his weekly mailbags.

    Re: Breer goes back and forth on hernamdez failed drug test count

    Breer had a story. He was at least partly correct. There is a claim that he was wrong about there being more than one failed test, so he went back and got more sources to verify/contradict first article, and he's gotten further verification as a result.


    That's actually good work on Breer's part.

    His "sources" are all second hand. Other teams. He has no sources that have direct information.

    Breer's all pissy because he jumped in the pool of ripping the '10 draft after just one pick.

    Re: Breer goes back and forth on hernamdez failed drug test count

    yeah...wow...you're right...he didn't have enough "unnamed sources" to back up his fairy story, so he invented two more...and YOU applaud him for it...so I guess you're calling the kid who's accused a liar and HIS statement a prevarification. Wonderful....ever think of trying the sports hack journalist gig yourself?? You've already got the ethics down cold.

    Re: Breer goes back and forth on hernamdez failed drug test count

    This is the problem with journalism in general today, not just Breer. There is such a rush to get the story out before you are scooped, you don't dot all your "I"s and cross all your "T"s. Breer obviously didn't have the whole story when he ran it, but he wouldn't be the first reporter to do this and certainly won't be the last.

    I do think many in the media have gone overboard in their criticism of this offseason (granted many of them went overboard in worshiping at the alter of Belichick in prior years). I think Breer falls into that category, but getting this story wrong and going overboard are unrelated in my mind.

    after this latest exchange, I'm coming back to the work force as a sports writer...the hell with it...I'll write any damn thing in any genre...

    I have three unnamed sources that inform me that the moon is made of green cream cheese....what's that?....you doubt the veracity of my story???.....oh...wait...I've got two MORE unnamed sources who confirm the previous three...now, CAN I PLEASE HAVE MY PULITZER PRIZE?!?!?!

    I'll make millions...MILLIONS I TELL YA!!

    1.) The use of "unnamed sources" is rampant in the business, and is not proof of falsehood.

    2.) I'm not calling anyone a liar, I'm simply commenting on the step Breer took. Take the time to read my posts before commenting on them and, hopefully, such confusion can be avoided in the future.

    3.) You're claiming that Breer made up sources, so it would seem that you are displaying the very ethics you're complaining about.

    don't try your patented post twisting, Deus...Tomase used the same "unnamed sources" the week before the Super Bowl that did EXTENSIVE DAMAGE to the team....turned out to be unfounded hearsay...just like this is...you just will NOT answer a direct question...do you think the young kid is LYING in his statement for the record on the record?

    1.) You know the sources are the same? How do you know that?

    2.) Is your claim that Breer hasn't heard such reports from his sources as he claims, or are you saying that the sources are giving him inaccurate information?

    3.) I have no idea whether or not the kid is lying.

    Breer has made his point. Right or wrong he needs to move on and write about something people care about. No-one cares, Albert, move along, get out of the dirt and write a makeup piece for your worthless rip job after one pick.

    what are you, a freakin' little weasel or what...you know damn well what I mean when I say that Tomase used "unnamed sources"...it's the same device that Breer is using here. For you to even think of printing something so childishly ridiculous as point #1 leads me to believe that you are totally impossible to deal with. You win.All bow down to the Black Knight of Patsfans dot com...

    Yeah, the old Breer would have done film study on a couple of our draft choices by now. The new Breer rips on the first pick solely because of the position then goes Tomase on us.

    If this perception caused him to fall to the fourth round and allowed the Pats to steal him, then it's all good to me. As long as he doesn't get suspended in the future, it's a win-win situation for New England.

    Here are incontrovertible FACTS:

    -Hernandez as a JUNIOR won the Mackey award this year as the best college TE in the nation
    -He wasn't picked until the 4th round after 5 other TE's were taken (including the legendary Tony Moeaki by the Chiefs)

    Whether or not he did in the past is immaterial NOW once the draft has occurred. The Pats got great talent value for the pick. The only thing that counts now is if he doesn't do anything to get suspended in the future.
