    I think this article is a bit harsh considering Tom Brady's situation. He does not have to speak after a post game in preseason, especially considering the circumstances.

    Brady is a pretty stand up guy and has been very good with the media in Boston, a pretty tough media at that. So not only does he owe it all of us to be a Red Sox fan, but now he also owes it to the media to speak to them after a GD preseason game after the birth of his son?

    His digs at Tom and comments on Peyton show a pretty obvious agenda.

    F*** him. I'm tired of this BS. Michael Vick just pleaded guilty to Federal Charges, but I guess in the eyes of this scum bag writer, he thinks that Tom Brady has committed a greater crime? Give me a break.

    I agree. I've never seen Tom represent himself as a media ducker AT ALL, and I think it's perfectly legitimate, expected and admirable for 12 to leave as soon as the game is over to get back to his child and the mother of his child. It is, in fact, a rather "family values"-ish way to do things. Seems like a weird comment to me, and kind of unfair.

    That was a journalist whining that he couldn't get a story. Try harder, Farinella.

    How much you wanna bet we find "Mr. Family Values" (Farinella) shows up on a blotter report wearing high heels and lipstick? lol

    This guy looks to be the new cheap shot artist around town, taking swipes at Jarvis Green, Brady and Ghost. I wonder if he is originally from Indy.

    I've never heard of this doofus before, and I hope I never do again.

    Ummm. Wow. What an ignorant ass. I dare say that Jarvis Green could break almost any starting lineup in the NFL that didn't contain Richard Seymour and Ty Warren in front of him.

    There is not a team in the league that Jarvis couldn't start for. Except the Patriots.

    This guy should have told Jarvis, "Who do you think you are?" See what answer Jarvis gives him.

    This guy is quite stupid IMO.

    I can't blame Brady for avoiding the media Friday.

    How many questions do you think would have been football related. Less than 1/3 I would imagine.

    What is a pretty memorable moment for most folks in their lives, I don't blame Brady for worrying or not wanting it to be soured by the jerks in the press corp.

    Farinella should ask Payton Manning if he's ever heard of Jarvis Green!!! Maybe then he would understand how well Jarvis fits in the Pats D.

    The media would have kept their questions football-related. :rolleyes: They did it for Andy Reid.

    I wrote Farinella and basically told him that he should stop being like WRONG BOGUS (Ron Borges) and that if anyone had the "Pre-Madonna" attitude it was him. Told him that reporters aren't ENTITLED to anything. That it wasn't a right, but a privelege to be in the locker-room and be able to address the players.

    Too many reporters think that they are god's gift and that we want to hear THEIR opinions and not the facts. Its one of the reasons that I like Breer and Reiss and SMY. They actually do reporting. Not like Farinella.

    The Sun/Chronicle? More people read this website than that insignificant rag. Who cares what some crybaby wrote in it. Don't send angry emails. Don't send eyeballs, either.

    Ha Ha, or you sure your name is not Chad Pennington, seems to me I remember most of Patriot Nation coming down hard on him when he said the same thing,

    "My name is Joe Farinelli and I am stuck at this two-bit community newspaper in an era where even the big ones are dying.........help me......save me from irrelevance.......please read my 'edgy' columns.....look at me.....look at me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Actually, this guy had a very good and informative article on Le Kevin Smith today. Maybe he should remember what he's good at and try to inform the public instead of junk like "I wasn't in Charlotte Friday night for the Patriots' 24-7 preseason victory over the Carolina Panthers, but........."

    Absolute classic. I remember that well.
    I can't believe I'm enjoying a Jets fan's contributions.

    It's a sad day when a Jets fan is the voice of reason on a Patriots message board. :(

    And if TB had stayed around, Farinella would probably have criticizd him for not jetting back to the west coast. The guy made two roundtrip cross country trips in the space of a few days. Cut him some slack until you've tried it.
