    I realize this isn't new.......consider it something to help get the rancid rantings of Gregg Easterbrook out of your mind.......


    "....But never since the times of slavery has there been a time when there weren't white families reaching out. During the slave period, there were free houses for slaves owned by whites. The NAACP was created by a white woman. Branch Rickey was as important as Jackie Robinson. Throughout our program you'll find people in different races doing all they can do. There are special people who fight for the right thing."

    Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is one of them, Brown said. Belichick met Brown when Belichick was head coach in Cleveland. Since, Belichick has done several speeches and appearances for Amer-I-Can. The bond between the two men remains strong.

    "He's been an unbelievable force," said Brown. "After five minutes with Bill, we became friends. We have the same desire to win, the same work ethic. We think the same. He is a special person and a lot of people don't understand how special he is."

    Imagine what would happen if Tony Dungy did the same thing?

    The media would create a never ending ovation.

    I was at a American function with BB and Jim Brown several years ago, had my pix take with Jim Brown.. BB was a new to the Pats at that time.. Jim Brown essentially said, If Michael Jordan did half as much as BB did for the world it would be a much better place (sic). kick myself in the ass for having my pix taken with BB.

    I didn't know about BB's involvement with these issues. Kudos to him.

    Shshsh...., Can you guys not talk too much about this, please. I am afraid Yahoo!Sports is going to pounce on this with the headline "Belichik to Prison?" on their main page. :scared:

    "These guys are good at what they do. They've been convicted 50 times but that record could be a lot better if a couple plays had gone their way. They're a smart team that can make plays in all phases of criminal life...."

    Fellers,

    Reminds me of the phrase:

    "Not by his words, but by his deeds shall ye know him".

    Says a lot about the good man coach B is. He doesn't ask for anything for himself, but works for others. Yeah, he's not a saint. He plays to win, and will push the envelope. But he certainly knows what it's like to be on the bottom rung, and from this article, he's happy to help others with a hand up, rather than a hand out.

    Good for him

    Respects,

    The Media has a Vendetta against BB so they would mention anything good that he does.
    I understand why more and more players won't talk to the media.
