    Dungy should realize how overblown this is on the Patriots, and point the finger at the lynch mob co-led by his general manager.

    I get what point you're trying to make, but mentioning his son's suicide in that context is crass. I don't like Dungy as a person very much, but that one's a low blow.

    ==================================== Classy.

    Dungy said nothing wrong here.

    Just gave his opinion.

    That is a f*cked up thing for Dungy to say. I've never been a fan of his but I've lost any respect for him now.

    Dude... really? I'm pretty angry over this whole thing... and I, too, feel that folks should shut their traps... but c'mon now.... think through what Dungy's beliefs say about his own son's actions...

    Say you don't like the man... make fun of the Colts.... but that comment is way out there... you have the right to say what you want, bro... but wow... that's his SON!

    Is anyone surprised? He's always been self-righteous, and people are convinced he walks around with a halo. That man is totally full of himself (to be fair, so is every other NFL coach). "Quiet Strength?" I'd kill myself before I let my biography be named anything like that.

    What he said was probably over the line but what Dungy said was too. He basically through Belichick under the bus saying that's what he has to do to win. Sure, Dungy's son was a real person but so is Belichick and he doesn't deserve to be judged by this jerk who needs rule changes and refs to win.

    I know you don't speak for Patriot fans but, my goodness that's a low blow.

    I respect Tony Dungy. I think he's a fine coach. Top-notch, in fact. However, his statement is a bit contradictory in that he says he isn't throwing stones after he had just cast aspersions upon the Patriots and their past accomplishments.

    I won't delve into why I think he makes such a glaring error, but it's to be expected.

    I apologize for that. You're right, there was no need for it.

    I do get tired of Dungy acting like he's Mr. Morality, though, when it's clear that he has his own skeletons in his closet.

    That's just an incredibly stupid thing to say. You need to get some perspective on life, pal. This is just a game. You are just a fan. Don't attack a person you don't even know about something you know nothing about. ***wipe.

    Our posts crossed. Your apology was the right thing to do. Fair enough.

    I lend approximately zero credence to any of the Abrahamic religions and find your post to be absurd and wholly uncalled for. I think you should apologize to the members here for such a hate-filled, disgusting post.

    Edit: Your apology came while I was posting this.

    Just to be clear...I concur with almost everything that you've said here (the only thing I don't agree with is the "probably")... and I've got no problem with being angry or attacking Dungy, within reason... but c'mon... there are certain things that are out of line, regardless... don't you think?

    Dungy shouldn't have opened his mouth with such a meaningless statement. Basically he's saying: It's not a big deal and its a shame the NFL is being tarnished by it. Well, no ****.... He's basically not taking sides and pointing ou the obvious. Better just to keep his mouth shut.

    Whole-heartedly agree.

    He acted like he never had a son when said son killed himself.


    EDIT:
    I hear all this talk about class. Forget about all that garbage. Coaches know spy games happen and it seems he's trying to detract our victories from his previous games.

    I'm all set with "class."

    My second post crossed your second post, too... man... I totally get where you're coming from and I think that your apology was a stand up thing to do there.

    No, it was definitely over the line. I apologized for it. I won't delete it, though (I said it, can't take it back). Like I said though, Dungy's a bit of a holier-than-thou prick. Belichick's got his own skeletons (and alot of them, people got on me when I called HIM an arrogant ass), but at least he doesn't preach morality (Dungy sticking his nose into business here that had nothing to do with him is the idea, even Mangini didn't come out and say stuff like this); these guys are football coaches, they (and we) shouldn't act like they're anything but. That's the frustration I get... I expressed it in the wrong way, I'm sorry for that.

    I would just love to have someone find pictures of a Colts employee pointing a camera towards the Saints bench during their week one win. Wouldn't that make this self righteous prick shut up quick!

    Bringing anyone's family into smack talk is beyond the pale. Bringing up the tragedy of Dungy's son is petty and pathetic....it reflects the mind set of the poster. What a jerk.

    I just saw the apology.


    This forum needs to activate controls that allow posters to their delete posts. Why aren't those controls activated?

    They're just trying to be PC. You would think Dungy (or MLK's long lost twin as Michaels suggested last Thursday) would be humble enough not to play, "what the kids may think," card considering his son's suicide.

    That was the thing that really got me. The comparisons of Dungy to Martin Luther King, Jr. One is pretty good at deploying a cover 2 defense, the other was "pretty good" at gaining civil rights for millions.
