    Fine by me. If they aren't supposed to be in the country, they ought not to be getting jobs here either.

    Good thing we didn't use them to clear the field right before Ghost kicked FG.

    The angles for covrering this story are two-fold: (1.) Unemployment rate and (2.) Taxation.

    I'll tell what the outcome of this will be. The contractor will issue a statemnt denying hiring workers who do not meet legal requirements. The true illegals will be deported unless of course they get married during the investigation. With out immigration reform this will be a continual cycle of stories like this. There also has to be a path in the reform for the 12 mil + illegals already in this country to take.

    This is really not a story that should focus on the Krafts but the weak immigration policy and enforcement we currently have as a country.

    This is way above ESPN's scope.

    I'm going to have to agree w/ee on this. Not really related to Pats. It's news but should be reserved for cnn.com and their commentary section.

    I agree with the poster who said this thread is less than newsworthy. Big deal, a few guys making $7 an hour were here illegally.

    So why am I supposed to care about this?

    It's not a "Patriots" story, it's the story of the private contractor that the Patriots hired.

    So then it's a Patriots story. Thanks for buttressing my argument.

    Were they hired by the contractor to remove snow form the property of Mr. Robert Kraft,correct?

    Robert Kraft is the owner of the stadium which houses the home of the New England Patriots,right?

    Its a Patriots story then (not earth shattering news nor is it inside team related,but a Patriots related story)

    I would have thought those guys would be better cleaning snow in the parking lot of the local Foxboro Walmart..Isnt that where they all get hired at?

    You need a life dude. The media dictates what's important for the team news and you lapped it up just like Tomase. I think you are Tomase now.

    Tomase claimed that the Pats had a tape of the Rams Super Bowl preparations without checking any facts.

    This story is factual as reported.

    What the heck are you talking about? :confused:

    He is a whining little ..... who wants to read nothing but 'rah-rah we are the greatest stories'...He really needs to look elsewhere then because there has been alot of less than rah rah stories this season.

    Positive posts make us feel better but it would be mighty boring around here if nothing was wrong or negative in the state of the Patriots.

    Disable Jersey

    When, I ask WHEN will we tighten up the northern border and keep those Canadian snow jobers from coming down here and taking our snow shoveling jobs?
