Kraft on Brady talks: 'We're cookin'
I can see the headlines now, "Kraft threatens to eat Brady alive in contract talks".
Brady "cookin'" with anger over contract dispute. Holdout 103% likely.
Bob's been on a cooking reference bender of late. I think Myra encourages too much late night watching of the cooking channel...
Yea it does!
Absolutely, we've seen 'em do it.:rocker:
Michael Silver is reporting that Bob Kraft is too busy with his culunary pursuits to negotiate a deal with Tom Brady.
First a round of golf with each other and now they're working in a kitchen together?????
What are they, a new reality show?
"Tune in next week for the new episode of our crazy duo in 'We're Fishin'".
"A friend of Kraft's, who owns another team, said he is concerned that Kraft is spending too much time doing things like playing golf and cooking with Brady. Such facades of chumminess, the source says, are disturbing considering the current labor environment in the NFL."
Did someone say that the talks between Brady and Kraft had grown heated and that things were at the boiling point?
Clayton: "Disturbing Reports of Kraft Spending Too Much Time With Younger Men"
I think Kraft was confusing his response with Belichicks cooking show appearance years ago...will be the continuing negative spin by the mediots....
Cooking with BB YouTube - â€ŞCooking with Bill Belichickâ€¬‎
I'll admit, I nearly spat out my coffee when I read that.
Curran: "Just as important as what Kraft said is what he didn't say. He didn't say what they were cooking so it was obviously something Brady didn't like."
Surely it was a referance to Brady's Entourage appearance where he says something about Giselle cooking.
Kraft is calling Brady a girl.
Yeah, they're cookin, all right...COOKIN' A SCHISM SOUFFLE!
Heading: Brady/Pats contract talks go up in flames!!
Hmm. After reading Breer's full blog entry, I'm not even convinced Kraft actually heard the question right:
Kraft briefly touches on Brady contract - Extra Points - Boston.com
Brady loses golf game bet with Bob Kraft and millions in his new contract.
Meanwhile, Belichick is fuming, "Kraft wants me to buy the groceries, but wont let me cook the meal." "Who does he think he is?" Gordon Ramsey?
Kraft continues to hold Brady to the coals in contract talks.
No Gravy: Brady/Kraft steamed over contract talks.
Kraft: "I hate Tom Brady"
oh..did I do it wrong?
Call me when there's a meal on the table.
Post of the day
So now Breer is saying "never mind, Kraft didn't hear the question right," which I said a few pages ago (page 2 of this thread) might be the case.
It was clear pretty early on that Kraft didn't hear the actual question in the first place. Breer's earlier post said the question was phrased as "anything shaking on the front with No. 12?" Not exactly crisp. Then Breer wrote, "(Kraft) responded, rushing off from the noisy area, 'We're cooking.' "
Problem is Breer tweeted the "we're cooking" line and everyone else jumped on it. Kind of ironic since yesterday Breer on Twitter was railing against the no tweets during practice policy, and mentioned how if a fan tweeted incorrect info, the real media would have to clean it up.

So when Kraft gives an answer that would drive a spike through this media driven story and essentially make it a non story, the media (Breer in this case) return with "apparently he didn't understand the question, but replied anyway."
...and the newspaper industry blames the internet for all of its problems.
but but but they are only there to tell the truth right.
oh wait sorry i got sucked back to the 60's for a bit there
Kraft said. "Heâ€™s a great cook so he has something very special planned and we look forward to spending many more birthdays with him right here in Foxborough."
Criminy. The headline on Curran's "follow up" is "Kraft says talks with Brady 'cooking,' then backs off."
I'm not going to give a link (unless a mod tells me I have to), but he ends the column with "we'll keep trying to ferret out the closely guarded info while trying not to piss off the owner too egregiously."
Some of these guys need to grow up. As stated earlier in this thread, it's pretty clear there was a group of reporters around Kraft, a vague question was asked in an noisy environment where it could easily not be heard, and a pat (no pun intended) "answer" was given. So it's Kraft's fault that neither Breer nor Curran could grasp the situation before running with "we're cooking."
I'm not a fan of shoot-from-the-hip criticism of the media, but this is so ridiculous. Remember, it was Curran who at the opening of camp misquoted Belichick (turning "all the players who are here are under contract" into "all the players who are under contract are here," to make it look like BB was lying about Burgess); now he wants to go after Kraft for his so-implausible "what are you talking about?" defense. Ridiculous.
