    I know this does not deserve the time of day, but I gotta say this:

    Gregg Easterbrook is like Ron Borges with an Ivy League diploma.

    You can put lipstick on a pig....... :bricks: :bricks: :bricks:

    **** you, Easterbrook... :mad:

    Haters have to justify why their team hasn't beaten the Patriots....

    They won't say Pats are just a better all around organization, with better players, coaches, scouting and owner.....

    It's actually funny to see the Cheatriot labelers try to keep pinning that tag on the Pats years afterwards...

    Move on...Pats have ....and they are taking names and kicking ass again :rocker:

    Indeed. Thanks, OP, for linking me to a sh!t article that I never wanted to read in the first place. I'm not even going to click the link to line Easterbrook's pockets. Once again, if you want these people to go away, and I'm going to put this in all caps so maybe someone might get it someday: THEN DON'T ******* READ HIM.

    "He (Belichick) never really apologized"

    He certainly did apologize. It is just the haters who decided it didn't really happen.

    "Although it remains a league matter, I want to apologize to everyone who has been affected, most of all ownership, staff and players," Belichick said. "Following the league's decision, I will have further comment."

    Belichick issues apology, says he's spoken with Goodell - NFL - ESPN

    then, as promised:

    Kraft, Belichick address owners, apologize for Spygate - NFL - ESPN

    You still read Eastebrok?

    No, seriously, as a writer he sucks.
    "As I've been writing since 2003..." try writing something new, Gregg. I have most of his crap in autotext.:D Boom went the preposterous column.:D

    Elaborate , systematic , clandestine operations. Pointing a camera at someone 35 yards away from you in broad daylight. Clandestine?? Thank God he doesn't work for the CIA. You could just walk up and down the street and get all of the information you need. Who needs spies?

    It's funny, I was reading that column earlier today - I saw Easterbrook's name and assumed it was going to be another hatchet job on the Pats - and was shocked to see it so complimentary to the Patriots. I got busy with something else and didn't finish reading it; I didn't realize till now he included that last paragraph.

    Re-reading it now, its about 98% very complimentary of the Patriots. And as much as it pains me to say this, Easterbrook does have one valid point in that last paragraph: if the Patriots go to the Super Bowl, SG is going to be brought up again, over and over during the time between the AFCCG and the Super Bowl. He is also probably correct when he says that there are some, even in the NFL front office, who would prefer the Pats not go to the Super Bowl simply to avoid the subject of SG being brought up.

    On the other hand, Easterbrook did slyly interject some major speculation masked as fact in that last paragraph, for which he should be called out, when he say if "the Patriots win this year's Super Bowl, people might wonder if they are cheating still. Probably not, but considering the elaborate, systematic nature of their previous clandestine efforts, this can't be ruled out."

    It was a guy on the sideline with a camera; that's neither elaborate nor is it clandestine.

    I have a feeling the more the Pats keep winning, the more writers like those we have seen this past week or so (King, Easterbrook, Sando) are going to dust off their old SG stories on a regular basis.

    I suppose that it's a good sign to have people like Easterdoof writing about the Pats again - everyone likes to take down the favorite, and the Pats are back on top again. Doesn't it almost feel refreshing? :D

    We can't control what these a** h***** write in the media. Here is my simple question, why bother reading these media wh**** and get riled up ? :spygate:

    Just bask in the glory of a great run we are having with a HOF coach/QB combo.

    For all I care, all the patriots haters can go f*** themselves and jump out of a bridge.

    This clown lost me as a reader in 2007. He's just an arrogant clod with opinions and little to offer in terms of insight on the sport. Dr. Z with SI is just as educated but actually knows the history of the game of football and doesn't come off as aloof.

    It's a shame the world couldn't trade Easterbrook's presence for Z's health and writing ability. Then the football gods would smile, as Easterbrook is so fond of stating.

    Sadly, you're correct. It comes with the territory for us now, unfortunately. He really uses some elaborate language to create suspicion, without really being accusatory. I'll give him this - he's a slick wordsmith. But, he has such an agenda in regard to BB that his semi-accusations/suggestions are transparent to anyone familiar with the history here. As a self-styled crusader for truth, justice and the American way, Gregg fails miserably here on one critical point: if you make accusations, particularly serious ones, you'd better damn well have solid proof and cite it in detail. He didn't, because he can't.

    On sunday I had the raiders game on and when Cable challenged the fumble/int there was someone in a raiders jacket with a large video camera so i guess everyone is still doing it and just not getting caught wish i had a dvr to show it.
