    THere's nothing new here and they say exactly the same thing. He's more like an obsessed fan than a reporter IMO. Vinatieri says he didn't give the Pats a chance to match so what did Felger want them to do? I'd also like to know why whenever a player leaves, the media has to keep asking if the team called that player? Does every free agent that leaves call the team to thank them? I doubt it.

    Just more reason to think Felger is following in Borges's footsteps..very plain to see...

    Just like Borges became nasty when they traded away Bledsoe, it looks like Felger is becoming like that because they didn't re-sign Adam. Let it go Felger.

    In BB we trust. I just keep telling myself Vinatieri was 4/8 in Field Goals over 40 yards last year, and hasn't hit a 50 yarder in a few years.

    Old news.

    Adams gone, can't change it.

    Felgers morphed into Borges-like, opinionated crybaby.

    Don't need to read useless articles.

    So I don't even bother.

    ;) ;)

    My signature

    Felger started his question, "Correct me if I'm wrong," BB quickly interjected, "I can't wait--"

    I didn't even want to read them

    I've moved on from Vinatieri. Thanks for the memories, now on with the 06 season and the 06 team.

    As in " better a year too early than a year too late" especially if that player has a greater sense of his value (and cost/salary) to the team than the front office and coaching staff do. Somebody should tell him to get over it. This stuff happens and players are grown up who make decisions. Adam chose to move on and didn't give the Pats a chance to match it. He obviously didn't want to be here anymore regardless of what you, me Felger or anybody thinks.
    Thanks for the memories Adam and good luck except when you play the Patriots.
    Just my $0.02,

    This guy is turning into a real asshat. The lazy malcontents at the Herald basically ran the same article twice (as BF just pointed out), the first one in straight Q&A form, and the second "article" was just a narrative based on the same interview.

    Check this out, from the "article":
    No he didn't. From Felgie's own interview:
    He never answered Felgie's question in the affirmative, or said himself that staying with the Patriots was a priority. Although, that's obviously what Felger was digging for. And if you tell me that "I didn’t really think about wanting to go anywhere else" is the same as saying your first priority is staying, then you're soft in the head. ;)

    Loved this one as well: (regarding AV's cap hit)
    Yet in the interview, AV said himself that he did NOT give the Patriots a chance to match the Indy offer. But let's not let a silly little thing like facts get in the way of a good opinion peice. :rolleyes:

    I was surprised he admitted that, got to give him credit for being honest I guess. Once we didn't Franchise him, he was never coming back. I think we all suspected that at the time and now we know it.

    By all that is holy...MICHAEL FELGER SHUT THE F UP and go away!!! :mad:
    Come back when you morph back into a legit sportswriter. What a moron.
    The guy signed with the Colts how long ago? I could understand if all this outrage was over the loss of Brady or Seymour. But with all due respect to AV, he was not and is NOT, I repeat NOT more valuable to this team than Brady and Seymour.
    Come on, we are talking about a KICKER for cripes sake!! Yes he was clutch, but so was the QB who consistently put him in field goal range when it counted. :mad:

    I thought the same thing - Felger's worst enemy is Felger... he can't remember what he wrote and then contradicts himself!

    exactly...Adam is gone, Willie is gone, David is gone...that is life Felger, you have to deal with the facts dude, I am loyal to one football organization, Mr Kraft, BB and SP are doing their best, they evaluate and based upon numbers make a decision ... we got Brady, Branch, Watson, Seymour, Bruschi, we got an aweful lot of talent and although you need a short memory in football, the boys will remember last year going forward. I am stoked for the new year, with some new blood....it's gonna be great!!!

    Felger is an emotional and obsessed fan who happens to write for a newspaper. He's not exactly capable of deep thought on any particular topic, as far as I've ever seen.
