    "I don't represent the Herald".

    Hanging his hat on the verbal stuff between Walsh and Daboll.

    Really fighting with Trey Wingo!

    And now calling the New England Fans "fanboys",

    He said he didnt want to represent the Herald and he wouldnt ask Wingo to represent everything that espn has said or done.

    Felger actually helped the Patriots look good. He did call us fanboys but also said the Pats do everything better than everyone else.

    I find that felger is anti patriot but he does it to try to seem more objective than others. He has created the anti patriot image off of this and sometimes he will say things just for ratings and not for his objectivity. But I think he tends to be objective and thoughtful with bigger stories.

    Actually what he was saying is that the Patriots 'cheat better' than everyone else. So I don't think that actually helps make the Pats look better. :p Felger, but especially the Herald have taken an image hit in my eyes. However wrote the 'pats taped the rams walkthrough' story should be run out of town on a rail. I believe that was Tomase?

    It had to go through layers of Editors to make its way into print.

    Tomase might have $700 to his name.

    The Herald has more, plus property.

    Felger does the same thing that a great deal of posters on this site do, he calls out anyone who disagrees with his hypercritical (dare I say, negative nancy) stances as "fanboys" or "homers."

    Being ridiculously slanted in the other direction doesn't make one objective.

    As I said in the other thread, I dislike Felger as much as anyone, but I appreciate him denying ESPN their agenda of attacking the Herald. Felger didn't write the article before the Super Bowl, nor is he an editor. He has no obligation to address where his employer fecked up. Go to Tomase or the editors if you want a statement from the Herald, anything else is irresponsible, conniving and bereft of journalistic integrity.

    This shouldn't surprise anyone because it is, of course, ESPN, but let this fact marinate: after having been duped by Tomase's story and making all sorts of premature insinuations, implications, and inferences regarding the existence of a walkthrough tape and its possession, ESPN is just now looking to investigate its origin and search for accountability. Instead of admitting their own mistakes, they are looking to attack another. ESPN could learn a whole hell of a lot by researching 17th century Salem, MA.

    That may be true to a certain extent. But if there's going to be a scapegoat, do you really think it's gonna be an editor, or do you think it will be the writer? History dictates that it's usually the writer who turned in the article, without verifying his sources, that will get hung out to dry.

    The interesting part of this interview was that he said there had been rumors for years that Matt Walsh had been telling people he taped the Rams walkthrough. Not just generally that the Pats had taped it, but specifically Matt Walsh. So it sounds like no matter who the final source was for the Herald story, the rumor started with him and he just denied it to Goodell.

    Not really, the people in charge will also pay the price. Look at the whole Jayson Blair fiasco. However, if this was just Tomase getting information from a liar, then all we might see is a retraction. Remember the LA Times recently wrote a huge story saying Puff Daddy was involved in a shooting of Tupac based largely on phoney FBI documents. After admitting they were wrong, the Times only had to print a retraction. NO heads rolled.

    "Scapegoat" to the public? Tomase.

    Deep pocketed agenda-holders who should have known better and are paid for the judgement? Editors/Management.

    Just ask Judge Murphy exactly who at the Herald had to pay out his $2 million settlement. Hint: It wasn't the writer.

    Hi all you fanboys and Nancy's! It's me, Fanboy Joker ...I just LOVE being characterized as a wimply Wilhelmina by some reed voiced ex maitre D from Jorge and Serge's Love Tunnel restaurant and turkish bath. Is there any doubt that Felger is cruisin' for a bruisin' as he flits from media appearance to appearance? Wonder if he mixes it up with John "Sherman" Clayton...or maybe Peter King just sits on him like some fat kindergarten bully.

    Today had to be one of the biggest stress buildups and blowoffs in sports history...watching them all react is priceless

    They will at least have to print a retraction / apology or another article talking about how Tomase believes that the commissioner and Walsh are lying.

    I guess Felger is being asked to save the Herald's credibility and readership.

    So if you're not a contrarian a-hole, you're a fan-boy.
