    Regarding the Pats/Branch's hearing with the arbitrator yesterday?

    Surprisingly I've seen nothing.

    Easy fella. Put down that 5th cup of coffee.

    I was just curious if any new wrinkles came out of the meeting.

    Ought to put the word arbitrator in the thread title. It's a sure bet that someone who has news will scan the list of thread titles, see no artibitrator thread, and then post his news. And if HE doesn't use the word arbitrator in the thread title, then we'll shortly have a third thread. Bank on it.

    I've joined the "Branch is dead to me" crowd, so honestly I don't care much what happens with him now.

    I sure hope so :) Hopefully he can avoid that injury bite this season that's been snaking him since 2002.

    I don't hold much value for Branch as a member of the Patriots either. But that's more a frustrated emotional reaction than anything else.

    One think that still greatly piques my interest though is his value as a commodity.

    His absence this year does damage the overall talent of the team in a significant way, but more importantly, what his value can bring us in return.

    I refuse to let myself fall into the "Let's just get a 2nd rounder for him and be done with it" crowd. That's very un-Patriot like thinking.

    I don't care whether he comes back or not either, I just hope we get some good value in return for all this BS.
