Fatboy says that he got a feeling from the NY Times that they were about to break a story about Walsh and the video tape of the RAMs walk through, how did he get that impression ? He gets the impression that the rumor about the tape and Walsh are in fact true and the Times is about to break the story. So like a pinhead, he decides he has enough to take the chance and breaks the story the day before the game. The NY Times gets to jump on the story, make it worse, knowing all along that it's false and the Herald will pay for it. The NY Times owns the Globe, who's only competitor in Boston is the Herald. If the Times could fool the Herald into breaking a story ( which they know or suspect as false )that attacks the Patriots the day before the Superbowl, think of it, how many NE people now hate the Herald, didn't someone just post about their brother canceling their subscription to the herald, which I'm sure many fans are doing the same ? Insane, improbable, but brilliant none the less if true.
