    Smart, Tony. Real Smart.

    Belichick's sleep quota this week just went from 3 hours a night to 2.

    His refrain here seems to be more couching cameragate based on public perception and his disappointment in how that harms the games, and how people will perceive the Pats on the same level as Bond.

    He's basically distancing his comments as an outside observer rather than making them first person.

    It was a clever way to state his own opinion the first time, and that still holds true.

    "Some might say that they're lying, cheating bastards who never accomplished anything. SOME might say that. But not me. I'm classy, and quietly strong. they're like Barry Bonds, the cheating pricks."

    I'm going to tivo his post-game press conference, make it into a CD, and keep it on loop while I fall asleep for the next month.

    That was maybe the stupidest thing he could do. It doesn't matter what he said. Just alluding to the fact that it happened is enough for Belichick to concoct some sort of bulletin board material out of it. Rodney Harrison has made mountains out of less.

    “To me, that’s what it is,” he said. “That was my opinion at the time and that’s what I believe. I don’t think it takes away from anything they’ve done. It’s just disappointing that it wasn’t a good situation for the league or any of the players in the NFL.”

    What in the hell does that mean? Talk about speaking out of both sides of his mouth. No, it doesnt' taint what they have done yet I do compare them to Bonds...you know, the guy who's records are TAINTED. Yeah...way double speak Saint Dungheap.

    great point solaris........classic double speak

    and this whole situation lives on why???????

    because BB refused to bite the hook when the media asked him leading questions during week 1. remember BB's reponse, "i made a statement, you've got it in writing, i've got nothing more to say until the ruling comes down" and "its unfortunate the league didn't view the rules interpretation the way i did, it's time to move on". thats all he said.

    He dissed the media by saying nothing, leaving the media to speculate wildly, despite the fact that the league announced "no competitive advantage was gained" (in other words....no bonds)

    so yeah.......just more billboard material

    I totally agree with this. Dungy has every right to criticize if he wants, but he's being wildly disingenuous here. He keeps making a statement and disavowing it all in one breath, in an attempt to get the insidious remarks out there but keep himself on the side of the angels. That's what political spinmeisters do -- toss out sound bites in the form of "I know some might say the Senator has crossed a troubling moral line, but that's for the public to decide." It's crap, pure and simple. Say what you believe and have the guts to stand by it.

    I've got a huge problem with Dungy's statement. Comparing Barry Bonds and the Patriots, your kidding. Sixty I tell you, SIXTY! Tony Dungy meet William Wallace.

    Boomer, your coach speaks with forked tongue. How can you like this guy?

    On the one hand he says the Patriots super Bowls are tainted the way Bobby Bonds' HRs are, and on the other he says they are not.

    What's admirable about this kind of wishy-washy holier-than-thou behavior. If he had more balls and just stuck to the Barry-Bonds insult, I'd have more respect for him.

    I don't think you are his "biggest" supporter. Typically, that would go to the fan who at the very least has a problem with the statement that Belichick is a cheater like Barry Bonds.

    This is the biggest bit of bulletin board material out there so far, and it's coming from the HC of the colts. WOW
