    What you won't see on PFT.....

    League sources have confirmed to us here at The National Football Post that the NFL League Office has sent Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis a letter informing him that he was in violation of NFL league rules when he falsely accused the New England Patriots of tampering with then Raider wide receiver Randy Moss.

    Every day Davis becomes more irrelevant and more and more out of touch with reality....

    Re: Davis in violation of rules......

    I did not see the PFT report when I posted....interesting in that this sets up a site credibility challenge.

    Florio says "But a league source tells us that the NFL has not yet concluded that any violation occurred." in response to the Nationals report that the letter says AD was indeed in violation of rules.

    Stay tuned.....

    Or better yet, give Jamarcus Russel an "all you can eat card" to Shoney's Breakfast and Lunch Buffet good for the life of his contract and force the Radiers to play him. :)

    Regardless of whatever controversy PFT is trying to stir up, the NFL by-laws are fairly clear on this topic. The Raiders never filed a tampering complaint; therefore the NFL did not investigate. Al Davis made false public accusations against the Pats, which is against the rules; therefore he will be penalized. If Davis felt the Patriots tampered, there are specific guidelines as to how that should (file a complaint) and should not (public accusations) be handled.

    MODERATORS:

    I realize, now I was the 3rd to post this in the main forum...WHY were they all moved.

    "This is the forum for fans to come and talk about other NFL teams"

    Key word OTHER - this is about the Raiders AND the Patriots & Randy Moss.

    Please explain.

    Here is some of Mike Lombardi's interview on Showtime. Lombardi was with the Raiders at the time of the trade and now writes for the National Football Post.

    In case you missed this by the esteemed SVN in one of the other threads over in NFL forum.....this PFT story is just bizarre.

    This entire story is bizarre. Can you imagine any of this BS, or Pacman BS or even last years non story of the year occurring if Paul Tagliabue was still in charge??

    By the way, a big thanks to Ian for restoring this thread in the main forum as it does contain Patriot content...thanks Ian - you rock.

    The intra-media hissey fit (PFT vs NFT) going on reminds me of battles in this forum! :)

    Makes for amusing reading.

    What I find most ironic about their 'feud' is that PFT, by talking about (and attempting to discredit) NFP is giving them just what they need - access to a much larger audience. PFT has been around for several years now, and Florio is a featured weekly guest on many football television and radio shows; most football fans are familiar with him and PFT. Very few are familiar with Lombardi and NFP, but Florio is introducing every member of his audience to that site - which could soon become his biggest competition.

    In that case, may the feud continue! NFP deserves a far bigger audience for its generally high-quality product.

    Edit: PFT is very good at its core mission, which is collecting and passing on inside gossip and rumors (acknowledging them as unconfirmed). PFT is flat-out lousy at actual football analysis, which is where NFP shines. They complement each other nicely.

    I agree, though they are two of the premier sites on the web for fans of the NFL, they do cater to different segments. I have a ton of respect for Florio as a businessman in what he has accomplished with that site. While many other sites re-post stories from every team in the league, he has done it in a unique way with links and commentary that has increased his audience and now probably rivals some of the sports sites of the big name corporations (espn, fox, cbs, yahoo) that have much larger resources and budgets. I'm somewhat surprised the edges of PFT aren't filled with ads, I'm sure advertisers would love to get their name in front of the number of people that visit that site every day.

    But as a football fan, I now find myself spending far less time on PFT ever since NFP was launched. Even though PFT has a much higher volume of stories, NFP has more of the type of content that I am looking for. To me, if you want football analysis, go to NFP; if you want to be entertained, read PFT.
