    Someone, Curran, Reiss, Holley, I forget who, has said before that Belichick respects Rosenhaus because he works hard and gets the job done - albeit with more flash than Belichick ;) Bon Jovi proves that you don't have to be a Belichick clone for him to respect what you do.

    While talking to Rosenhous I bet Kraft was secretly thinking "D-Bag!":D

    JK.. He's on a little better terms with me since he made the Stallworth deal happen. You know that guy currently has 60 active contracts negotiated in the NFL, alone? I might not like the guy, but if I need representation I am sure glad I know his nunber;)

    One of Kraft's top business skills is deal making. He knows it can get ugly.

    Just think of how close the Hartford move came to happening.

    This kind of schmoozing is one of the few things he can do to actively help the team other than hire good people and get out of the way. Bravo to him for doing it.

    If Stallworth has a great year and we need to rework his contract,we might be thankfull about this.At least it wasn't the Poston brothers.

    Haven't they had a good relationship with Rosenhaus for a while? It seemed as if BB was helping Rosenhaus get McGahee drafted high a few years ago.

    If you've ever been a room during and then after a deal, you see this exact thing. Basically, people beat the sh*t out of each other for hours, days, weeks getting as ugly and nasty as can be, and then before the ink is even dry, it's all bouquets and kisses.

    It sort of reminds me of those old looney toons cartoons from the Bugs Bunny era. It would start out with Ralph Wolf and Sam Sheepdog punching in at a time clock, and wishing each other a "good morning." For the next 10 minutes, Ralph tried to steal the sheep, and Sam would find clever ways to kick the sh*t out of Ralph. At the end of the episode, it would flash to Ralph, usually in a cast of some sort, and Sam punching out. "G'nite, Ralph." "G'nite, Sam."
