Let me first begin by saying that I'm a Dolphins fan and have been since 1990. However, I'm also a football fan and am always up for a good conversation about any team. That's just an extended way of saying I'm not a troll. Every team loses veteran players, it's unavoidable in the NFL but it seems as the Pats have lost more than anyone else over the past 5 seasons. And not just veterans but fan favorites and key players and in some cases marquee players. So my question is, is loyalty to the players a problem in New England? It seems like players are brought in, work out their contract, and then are let go on a regular basis. Vinatieri won 3 Super Bowls and was allowed to walk. Troy Brown has been with the Pats forever and they let him go. So what I'd like to know is if this is really an issue. How do the fans feel about it and do you think it has an affect on acquiring free agents? Obviously it doesn't since you got Thomas and Stallworth. So it would seem players are willing to sacrifice job security to play for a winner. Is it the same feeling among fans? That as long as they're winning it doesn't matter who it is?
