    It's become obvious that the players do pay attention to the media coverage surrounding them. Many of the players, including TB, Vince, butler, guyton, mccourty, etc are on twitter... Some several times a day... Is it that far fetched to think they may browse patsfans?

    Mike Reiss has mentioned this forum in his blog. (though obviously, he is not a player).

    If there was forum dedicated to talking about ME, I would read it.

    I have to figure many of them read it.

    when I was in HS I was a nationally ranked cross country runner. I religiously read everything that people were saying about me on forums.

    I can't see the Patriots spending much time on these forums though. These guys get their first taste of celebrity when they are in high school - by now they probably don't care what people think.

    Twitter is different, because they can communicate with other players (and not just to trash talk). I hear many of the corners have mentors on other teams who they ask for advice about the game and tells regarding specific recievers, and things like that.

    Exactly, put yourself in the player's shoes and try to predict whether you would check this place out, I think I definitely would time to time.

    Sucks for guys like Wilhite and Maroney lol

    Post 1- That guy can run a long way in a short period of time.
    Post 2- Yeah, I saw that. He can run a long way in a short period of time.
    Post 3- I concur.

    And then, of course, the necessary debate would follow.

    Post 4: I think he just takes a short period of time to run a long way, not so sure it's a matter of running a long way in a short period.

    Post 5: Yeah, I agree. Posts 1 and 2 are moronic. Everyone knows it's more important just to take a short period of time to run a long way.

    Post 6: You're all full of ****. What he does is get from here to there real fast.

    Post 7: But remember, that was unofficial time. In a real event he'd probably be slower due to gameday pressure, etc.

    Post 8: And the track wasn't properly surfaced, either. If he had a proper grass surface, he'd be faster.

    Post 9: And safer.

    Post 10: Concur.

    Post 11: remember, though that this was on FESPN. Who can believe that stuff anyway?

    Sure they do. It's just human nature so I can't imagine that they don't. I doubt they read every thread or even most threads, but if it's about a particular player or the coaching, I can't imagine they don't take a look.

    I also wouldn't be surprised if Pats management didn't use it as a free sounding board on fan opinion.

    What's his handle? I want to PM him and wish him best of luck in Denver and tell him that what he has read here does not reflect what many of us feel about him and thank him for his contribution to this organization.

    Post 12: There goes Poster 8 again, whining about the track surface. For Cripes sake, 8, when are you just going to just accept that the guy sucks? My grandmother could get out of her grave and push her casket across the finish line faster than him.
