    Are we really going back to body language? I thought we were done with this last season...

    Yeah, I noticed that, too. Gives some credence to the rumors I've heard that he's thinking about selling the team. :rolleyes:

    ESPN will now officially report anything, no matter how stupid or untrue, if it helps to tarnish the Patriots' reputation.

    Kraft has thick skin. They are just looking for things to talk about. Kraft is shrewed as can be in business. He did things that may have hurt his image(moving to Hartford, season ticket monopolies, etc..) So long as his players obey the laws and behave accordingly I dont think he care one ounce what the pundits think.

    Re: Kraft uncomfortable ?

    they showed shots of him in the 4th quarter and said they were looking uncomfortable with the brady being in there and the TD's being scored. they are very conscious of their image etc

    He didn't look at all uncomfortable - just sitting in his chair chatting with Jonathon. This is a total non issue.

    Re: Kraft uncomfortable ?

    Well, if so, you can kiss BB good-bye. After Modell he said he would not work for a meddlesome owner again. BB is already likely POed about Kraft throwing him to the wolves with the, "I'll tell you one thing: It won't happen again" cave job.

    Kraft should have stood up to Goodell. If Kraft has any cajones, he will torpedo NFL in Europe, Goodell's favorite project. Jerry Jones is opposed to it. He and Kraft could make like miserable for Goodell.

    We'll see if Kraft is a man or a mouse. If he puts his weight behind Goodell again, I will lose all respect for him. Right now, Kraft rates just above VIctor Kiam in my book.

    That's what I thought. They all looked pretty relaxed to me. Kraft was even hitting on a chick right in front of Myra.

    Re: Kraft uncomfortable ?


    I don't get this at all. Kraft is more powerful than Goodell long term. Goodell is an employee of the league - Kraft has staying power.

    Throwing BB to the Wolves? It's big business - what did you expect the guy to say? It's not a bar brawl where you stick with your buddy regardless. Besides, BB knows better than any of us how the 'game' is played; I don't think he was upset at all by Kraft's comment.


    And the 'if Kraft has any cajones'....remember the comment after spygate about BB's being the size of NJ? I'd say Kraft's are the size of TX!

    Re: Kraft uncomfortable ?

    That may be the most retarded "story" I've ever seen. They had absolutely no evidence and the video of the Krafts showed NOTHING, they were just sitting there, and who knows at what exact point in the game it was even being taped. Jeez... give it up Mort, that was weak, pathetically weak.

    Oh, yeah another Mortensen "scoop". The guy will just stop at nothing to create a story.

    Who was that? Jonathan is a regular at TC and in the booth, but I didn't recognize that younger woman.

    Eli will be out another month or so with his separated shoulder.

    Mort's a joke. Examining Kraft's body language? Way to use your insider reporting skills there. Make up a story out of thin air.

    The media really is unbelievable sometimes.

    Except for gasping DLs with hands on hips in the 4th qtr ...
    the only body language in the stadium anyone should be watching is
    cheerleaders.

    "Read my ... er, hips!"

    Re: Kraft uncomfortable ?

    How can the fact that they were just sitting there make you think he was upset about it? Just because he isn't jumping up and down cheering during a blow out doesn't mean anything.

    I hate the media.

    Re: Kraft uncomfortable ?

    I don't know. If I remember correctly that they flashed to Kraft a lot in the fourth quarter during the game and Bob and Myra seemed to be chatting it up with a guy and his hot blonde wife/girlfriend. They didn't see all that upset.

    Another case of ESPN trying to creat controversy.

    Re: Kraft uncomfortable ?

    This was after the rant that Steve Young went on about the Pats being "bullies" and that Brady spiking the ball when we already were up so many points was unconscionable. He was practically frothing at the mouth! It's becoming very funny to see some of these professional commentators come unhinged over the record season the Pats are on.

    Uh, is Kraft supposed to be jumping up and down in the 4th quarter of a blowout?

    Mr. Kraft are you comfortable?

    Ah, I make a nice living.:D

    (As told by Henny Youngman:

    In New York's Garment District, a little old man was hit by a car.
    While waiting for an ambulance, the policeman tucked a blanket under
    the guy's chin and asked, "Are you comfortable?" The man said, "I
    make a nice living.")

    Re: Kraft uncomfortable ?

    I am apparently the only one here who thought Kraft did look uncomfortable late in the game, when CBS showed him and Jonathan. I thought that at the time. Or to put it more clearly: did they look like they were having as much fun as a blowout Patriots win should cause? No, they didn't.

    What I won't do, unlike ESPN, though, is wildly guess the reason why they weren't having fun. Could be a lot of things. Including distaste at the blowout. Or maybe they celebrated so much that the alcohol ran out. Or maybe Myra bet the under. Or who knows what. Before I got concerned I'd have to hear more *independent* *confirmation* that Kraft is unhappy (which is different than so many people writing the same speculation that it becomes accepted as truth, which we saw happen at the start of the season.)

    It just occurred to me that I tivoed the game. When was the shot of him looking uncomfortable approximately?
