    I'm still a Newbie here so sorry if this is a re-post or already known....but i was thinking....Do you all think that BB or Pats players or FO might lurk on these boards? Wonder if any of these posts have ever been helpful or hurtful to them. just tossing something out there on a boring Friday night in AZ. :D

    I think they take detailed notes on NEM's offensive coordinator rantings.

    There was a brilliant thread started last year on this subject. Ian confirmed that some players and/or family members do read this board.

    I think most check out the cheerleader thread.

    Then we need to do something for the Patriots' gay team members too.

    Family members like Player X's second cousin's brother-in-law's nephew's great aunt's grandson's husband, or more immediate?


    (..."grandson's husband?"...:D)

    Not until these birds learn to clearly label the contents of their threads. Darned fantasy stuff has already upset my delicate tummy, I can't imagine how bad it will be when the Jest lurkers start cajoling Brady to enter their closets. :eek:

    It would be cool if they post here, but I'd suspect that most of us would just take them as imposters and run them off the board :D

    Curt is a absolutly a different cat when it comes to getting to know the fans. There was a time when I read everything he posted over there. That was before EEI would pick up on it and try to make something out of it. Still in regards to the Pats, it sure would be great to have a player any player share some personal thoughts here with us fans.

    Like BB wouldn't cut him immediately! Sharing personal thoughts? The Patriots don't have personal thoughts. Those that do, find themselves wallowing in utter obscurity for years (Woody in Detroit, Lawyer in Buffalo...). :singing:

    But, last year on a similar thread, Ian confirmed this. He has recieved emails from them.

    Please Rodney,
    I was only kidding. Really. I was. I really hate the sight of blood. My own.

    Bill Belichick..? No way in hell. And ditto for the high levels of the front office. But I certainly wouldn't be surprised if there are some lower level guys in here cheking things out.

    Scott and I post on here regularly. I thought that the disguise of a smug, know-nothing, limey liberal with a terrible sense of "humour", would throw you all off the scent. It seems to have worked.
    BTW, thanks for all of the suggestions about Tommy's overthrows, from the thread we started. We're working on them as we speak.

    Oh, and PWP: Rodney is currently having a "friendly chat" with your ISP, who were so persuaded by his charm that they gave up your address. He'd like to come over for lunch. Don't worry about the invitation. He's on his way over, already.

    It is what it is... BB.

    That's a very good question. I have always suspected they lurk because you will occassionally see something written in the NG's then repeated (almost verbatim) in a following day's article. However, IMHO, I doubt they post all that much (if at all). When it's your job to write about and opine about and talk about the Patriots, you probably don't rush home to do the exact same thing in your free time... But then again, they have been known to respond to e-mails so posting here isn't all that much of a leap...

    Interesting fact, I post over at the Lone Mavs Fan Forum (HUGE Mavs fan, I cryed during the Finals), and before Mark Cuban bought the team he used to post there, and afterwards he still lurks...we know this is a fact because he actually referred to the site in several of his blogs. I'd be willing to bet he still posts there under a different screen name.

    It's virtually certain that they all regularly read this forum, as it's actually an interesting source of fresh opinions on the team, as well as an indication of how opinion leading fans are thinking about the team -- and especially what we think of them themselves. Some of them undoubtedly post as well.

    "I'm Ron Borges?" is certainly someone in the media, very likely Wrong himself, both because of the quality of his prose style, his mirroring Wrong's agenda, and the obvious fact that he's not a fan of the team. If so, his signature line is quite revealing.

    You're 100% right about everything except IRB's true identity. :D

    Because I have gotten emails from immediate family members. I also know that several media members lurk on this board. I know for a fact that Dan Pires does because he has sent me emails commenting about my postings.
