    Mr. McGill = Mike Nifong

    I hope the U.S. Attorney in Florida nails the b*stard.

    Looks like his client has some sort of habit that is expensive ... what a loser.

    I knew you weren't lying Randy, I knew it.

    #81 explodes at 3pm on Sunday. The team plays this one for Randy. They messed with the wrong team, little did McGill know that the Patriot family takes stuff like this and turns it into even more focus, unity and strength. Thank you McGill the timing was perfect.

    Re: Email from Tim DiPiero, agent for Randy Moss

    This certainly sheds a lot of light. And coming from his agent, it's probably fair to assume Randy authorized this release.
    However, I gotta wonder, from a legal standpoint, shouldn't Randy's camp be keeping their mouths closed. Nothing done wrong, no reason to play into their hands (the publicity game).
    Put it out of your mind Randy, justice is on the field Sunday!

    In general, if this thing was true from her side, I don't think Randy would be so positive, and I don't think his agent and attorney would go through all this and go out of their way to prove he is inocent.

    Re: Email from Tim DiPiero, agent for Randy Moss

    I'm sure Randy's attorneys OKed it. What they have done is countered Mr. McGill's public statements from today and also put a ton of pressure on him and his client. Now that the U.S. Attorney's office is going to get involved, Mr. McGill suddenly has a lot to lose.

    Re: Email from Tim DiPiero, agent for Randy Moss

    It doesn't seem like there's much of a legal case for them to defend Randy in, this is entirely a war of public opinion. They were trying blackmail, not with threat of a lawsuit, but with the threat of harming Randy's public image and earning potential. As a case I think this would be so flimsy there's no need to keep quiet.

    What sacks of sh*t this woman and her attorney are. I hope they both get fried for this. Expulsion from the Bar would be a good start and perjury charges against the woman for the Restraining Order.

    I disagree. Randy is doing it right.

    Spygate was handled wrong. If BB had made a copy of every tape handed them over to the media, this is when I started, here is what I taped, here is why. We would not still be reading stories in the media speculating as to why there was a cover-up.

    Ya never know. The form has a warning about false allegations and penalties where she signed. This is a high profile case, they may go after her...especially if the Attorney rolls.

    I agree.

    I understand Belichick not saying anything. Spygate affected the "brand" so I don't understand why Kraft said nothing.

    Randy and his agent did the right thing releasing this info.

    Here's the whole shebang. Everyone should read it:

    Email from Tim DiPiero, agent for Randy Moss
    Email|Print| Text size – + By Mike Reiss
    Globe Staff / January 17, 2008



    Tim DiPiero, agent for Patriots receiver Randy Moss, emailed the following tonight regarding the situation regarding his client:

    My communications with Mr. McGill began last Wednesday. He told me that Randy had intentionally hurt his client’s hand and wouldn’t take her to the hospital and that if Randy didn’t pay up, he would go public and file suit in Florida for battery. He gave me until 3 pm Friday to let him know. He demanded that I not come up with “something like $50,000 or $75,000,” but something with “six figures.” He had told me that the x-rays on her hand or finger were negative. I explained that it was my understanding that what occurred was the result of a horseplay-type accident and Randy was sorry it had occurred and he would pay for her medical bills and pain and suffering and that I would prefer to turn this over to his homeowners’ insurance coverage as we normally do with accidents. He said he was not interested in insurance or what her injuries were. He said he was evaluating the claim based on what Randy stood to lose. He threatened that Randy would suffer large amounts of money in future salaries and endorsements and what he claimed would be game suspensions.
    He also threatened that his client had lots of “dirt” on him. Making such threats is clearly unethical, and in my opinion, criminal. When I tried to ascertain the extent of her injuries, he said that he didn’t know and that it didn’t matter as I just needed to make an offer big enough that she would take it. I sought the assistance of a skilled attorney and friend, Joe Friedberg of Minneapolis, who contacted a friend of his, Richard Sharpstein in Miami, to assist me. Each of them tried to talk to McGill and they both experienced the same attempts to shake down Randy. In fact, he tried to intimidate me by telling me that I would be blamed if the suit got filed. He said in a threatening tone that “it behooved me” to make a big offer and he told me, “don’t blow it.” On Friday afternoon, I contacted the FBI and the US Attorneys’ Offices here in Charleston about his threats. McGill claimed to be driving to the courthouse to file the complaint. I asked if by six figures, he meant $100,000 and he told me to quit “nickel and diming” him. The filing time passed on Friday and he was upset that he had not filed before the Patriot game on Saturday. He kept pushing me to make a big offer. We asked him for a figure and after refusing for awhile, he gave us one, “$500,000, take it or leave it.”

    People who know me in West Virginia know that I have had a long relationship with Randy and that I care a great deal about him. His success this year on and off the field has been something those of us who are close to him have enjoyed immensely. The private, glowing reports I have received from folks in the Patriots organization about his daily work ethic and rapport with everyone there made us ecstatic for him, given the difficulties he’s had. The Patriot family has come to know him as we do. With this big game coming up and with the media frenzy that I figured would follow, as it has, I admit that I thought about advising Randy to just pay the $500,000. I knew that Randy, given all the positives this year, would not want this situation to hurt the Patriots, especially now, and to be a distraction for his teammates and would pay much more than he should for the sake of the team. Because I’m too close to the situation, I had to listen to the advice of Mr. Friedberg and Mr. Sharpstein who advised me, correctly, that to pay such an outrageous amount was not the right thing to do. We tried to meet with Mr. McGill on Monday, but he refused to do so. I still didn’t want Randy to face all this craziness, and naturally we wanted to settle this thing and were willing to pay an exorbitant amount to do so, so when he asked for an offer on Monday, we said, something to the effect, “you said six figures, how about $100,000?” He said it had to be $500,000 or nothing. We told him to forget it. He had his client file the domestic petition the next day.
    I don’t want to add to the media frenzy, but I must respond to Mr. McGill’s recent inaccurate statement. I want the U. S. Attorneys Offices in Miami and Charleston, the Prosecuting Attorney of Dade County and the Florida State Bar, whoever has jurisdiction over Mr. McGill’s conduct, to know that I am ready to meet with any and all of them and to testify regarding the blatant threats and attempts to extort money from my client.

    Re: Email from Tim DiPiero, agent for Randy Moss

    No, I think you're right. As I think more about it, I think this was the right thing to do. And I think you're right about the way BB handled Spygate.
    Ironically, originally, I was thinking that the less said, the less media hype. Which is also how BB handled Spygate.
