Why are these two guys so ill informed about what they talk about.... You have wanna be big shot Felger & his ESPN radio show and Tomase - HERALD BEAT writer for the Patriots. Shouldn't they have a grasp of basic information?? I just heard the two of them go off on a rant wondering if this might be the first step in a holdout and likening the situation to that of Branch. So many wrongs in a 5 minute rant it makes me wonder why they get paid!! As summed up so well by the good folks over at: WWW.bostonsportsmedia.com More picking on the flash guys... I heard it reported this morning - with the required twinge of urgency - that Asante Samuel did NOT report to the Patriots first day of their off season conditioning program. It was made to sound like there was a mini-holdout going on. The problem with this is that Samuel has trained in Florida during the offseason in the past. The other problem is that while the Patriots have placed the franchise tag on Samuel, he is, as of this moment, still a free agent. He is not the property of the Patriots, as he has not signed the one year franchise deal. Why then, would he be a participant in the team's conditioning program at this point? It's another example of trying to make a story out of nothing, which so many of them do.
