    Excuses....It is pretty clear that the Patriots are so self absorbed that they can not take a couple hours (that they committed to) to honor the troops coming back.

    If anything the Patriots should be asking the Soldiers autographs.

    This is the Patriots true colors....

    Most of the players aren't even here moron, probably why there was a problem. They do a ton for the soldiers--check Larry Izzo out sometime and educate yourself.

    Regardless - its not that they had anything to do. They made a committment and stood them up.

    You say the players weren't there. So you are saying the players don't live were they work. I find that interesting. But then again, I probably would get out of there as much as possible also.

    Obviously they never intended to send the 53 man roster. I find it hard to believe they couldn't find a few guys to drop by to say hello. Maybe it was an honest mix up; however, it doesn't sound like doing something for the troops was high on the priority list.

    For those visitors who failed reading comprehension in high school...

    National Guard Public Affairs Officer Major Lisa Ahaesy attributed the mishap to a scheduling conflict and said the Patriots were not to blame. She said she notified the media on Friday that the Patriots would not be present, but didn’t tell the soldiers because the Guard still planned to honor them.

    “The communication wasn’t done,” James said yesterday. “The Patriots never even knew that their presence was requested.”


    So the players are at fault for not being somewhere that they never knew about. Hysterical.

    Visitors are unaware that players like TE Ben Watson went to visit the troops in freakin' Iraq in the off season.

    I'm not blaming the players in any way. I am sur ethey would do what they could and certainly what they were told to do. I fault the organization for not making it a priority.

    Did you even read the freakin article you're basing your opinion on? The Guard forgot to even contact the Patriots.

    Like I said before, it may very well have been an honest mix up. I am not ruling out th epossibility she is covering for them either. The whole story seems odd.

    If I were a fan of this team^ (like JimmyCrackCorn, fitting name by the way), I would be up other teams butts as well.

    The mascot is awful. No defense for that. The Rooneys have kept it hidden for all games because the fans will boo it. The mascot has only been used to visit sick kids in the hospital.

    You didn't have to include a picture of yourself next to it though. :)

    Gosh where to start. Our good friend JIMMY!!!!! seems to have failed at basic reading skills. As soon as I opened the link, the title (in bold print) states:
    Guard drops the ball over Patriots fete.
    Then later in the piece:
    National Guard Public Affairs Officer Major Lisa Ahaesy attributed the mishap to a scheduling conflict and said the Patriots were not to blameShe said she notified the media on Friday that the Patriots would not be present, but didn’t tell the soldiers because the Guard still planned to honor them.
    Oh, then there was this:
    Stacey James, vice president of public relations for the New England Patriots, said the team had no idea they were expected at the event
    And then:
    "The Patriots never even knew that their presence was requested"

    I made some of the more important parts a little more noticable for those of you that have problems with basic comprehension skils.

    Super. If you read my post, you would have also understood that I stated I never thought the team knew about it. i was only pointing out that the whole thing seemed odd. Also, I am not buying for a second that NO ONE in the entire Pats organization knew about this. Some key decision makers may have been ignorant to it, but someone clearly dropped the ball.

    Yes Dookie plays for us, but you have to admit its funny. I mean if I was caught doing half the stupid stuff I did on college, I could easily be in his situation. There have been worse offenses. I'm not defending it, but it's really no big deal.

    To take your point further, the Steelers are not perfect. We have players who has been arrested etc. Every team is a shade of gray on these issues. I do however believe the Steelers take the high road more often than most. They have old school ownership which is willing to support people who get caught doing things in the catagory of "boys will be boys". That said, if you get is real trouble, they will cut you under most circumstances.

    The one area I believe the Steelers do not compromise on when it comes to character is ON THE FIELD character. If you are selfish, lazy, etc, you are not welcome. See the Plaxico Burress situation...

    I agree, it is not a big deal. But it is possibly the funniest story to come out of the NFL in the past decade.

    Mary McCarthy, asleep in the room, told police she was startled awake by a strange sound and saw a man squatting in her closet. The man, later identified as Davenport, had defecated in her laundry basket, police said.

    "Where's the evidence? Where's the manure?" Davenport asked outside court. "

    You can't make this stuff up
