A good read: http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/football/patriots/view.bg?articleid=1032305 -"It is worth noting that some of the people who were most outraged at Belichick‚Äôs subterfuge - we speak of the New York fans at the Jets-Pats game in the Meadowlands - cheered when their gutsy quarterback hobbled off the field in agony. Oh, but a camera. Those classless losers draw the line at a camera." -"So take his money. Take the draft pick. Brand him like a prize cow, if it makes you feel better. But in the end, Belichick was doing what he has always done, what he was hired to do, when he sent his camera boy onto the sidelines at Giants Stadium. He was looking for an edge, anything to help his team win a game, like he does every week, like every coach who hopes to last longer than a house plant does." -"Just as there is no crying in baseball, there is no conscience in football, at least not in NFL football. The truth is there‚Äôs no ethical line. That‚Äôs why a great man like Dick MacPherson was gone after two seasons with the Patriots, and another terrific guy, Pete Carroll, ended up in college, where there is still a few slots open for well-adjusted human beings in the coaching ranks." -"It is only fitting that in a week the rest of the world was calling for Belichick‚Äôs head on a stick, it was revealed the Patriots gave him a contract extension through 2013. He is an arrogant, cheating, ruthless, rule-breaking maniac, and all of New England is damn lucky to have him."
