    This ESPN writer in a new article today discusses Bowden,Jones and Rooney who won 3 titles and as the best of the owners with 3 titles or more but fails to mention Robert Kraft who has done it as well,Not one mention - Must be a Jets fan :mad:

    The top 3 deserve the accolades but Kraft being left out is nothing but disrespect unless I missed something here.

    No, you didn't miss anything. It's ESPN. There's always an agenda against us.

    The one saving grace in that is NOT being included with Jerry Jones in anything. Expletive ESPN!

    Its an odd survey, of 32 owners, only 11 received any votes. And Al Davis is noted as not having received a single vote. That's weird. Also the lack of a vote for Kraft, who is well known and has 3 titles is very odd. Especially since 2 head coaches in the league were assistants at one time under Kraft's ownership.

    You missed something. ESPN didn't leave Kraft out of anything. The article is about the results of a poll of NFL coaches. Of the coaches who responded, Kraft didn't get votes.

    You guys don't know who Bill Williamson is? He is the former Broncos beat reporter for the Denver Post.

    LOL...after the SB 42 debacle I'd put Kraft on a list with 2 other people;

    1) Owner of the ship Titantic.
    2) Owner of Delorean Car Company
    3) Bob Kraft


    There is a list for you.

    I still remember the feeling back in 2001 when the Bronco's got eliminated from the playoffs ... that was 2nd that year to winning Super Bowl #1.;)

    By now we all realize that you are obsessed with this analogy. You need to move past that game, for you have not contributed anything meaningful to the board since then.

    Bowden hasn't won three titles. He only won two.

    I liked this part from the sub-section on the right. "ESPN.com surveyed NFL head coaches for their take on a range of issues, including the league's smartest offensive player (non-QB), smartest defensive player, dirtiest player and which owner carries the best reputation among head coaches. Thirty-one of the 32 coaches participated on some level.

    Guess which coach didn't participate. Don't give those hacks anything Belichick. I love it.

    I love this from the box on the side of the article:

    I have been racking my mind for the last hour trying to come up with the one head coach who refused to participate in ESPN's stupid survey. For the life of me I can't think of a single head coach who would refuse to participate in something for ESPN.

    I think you have a big bias here. Other coaches polled are not going to put up any of the Patriot players, especially in the wake of an almost perfect season where they were accused at times of running the score up, spying on defensive signals etc.

    I would take Bruschi as one of the smartest defensive players over Zach Thomas or Ray Lewis. I was surprised how high Randy Moss rated on smartest offensive player article. And as a Homer.. I would put Troy Brown as one of the smartest all-around football players out there, even if he didn't get much playing time last year.

    I really don't see this being an ESPN conspiracy, but more just other coaches just wanted to ignore the Patriots because they are probably sick of them, pissed at them, etc.

    In 15 -17 years that Kraft has owned the team he has been to 5 SB and won 3 of them he has like 10 division titles as well and what 3 maybe 4 losing seasons. Jerry Jones on the other got his three and what since?

    ESPN hates NE so much it's hilarious....

    It would be my wish that NE grants no access to ESPN, interviews, pre, post game nothing, not a sniff.

    I can't speak for any of you but I love to be hated by ESPN, the self proclaimed World Wide Leader in Sports....:rofl::rofl::rofl:
