    I think I will follow the words of old friend Michael Gee and ignore this BS until it is over. Deoin is being misled and should have taken the offer - the Patriots could give a little too and end this as well. However, I do believe he will be in position and starting opening day, but I am not going to be sucked in anymore, this is my last post on the subject...thank you Michael.

    " Can't we just cut to the chase? Come Sept. 10 at 1 p.m., the chances are 9,999,999.99 out of 10 million a more-or-less gruntled Branch will be in the Pats' offensive starting lineup for the season's opener against Buffalo. Knowing that, why sweat the details? Why follow the self-serving words of Branch's agent on a daily basis? It's difficult enough to get Belichick to say anything of substance about the players who're IN camp. He's not gonna say squat about a player who isn't and everyone down to the infants in Tom Brady number 12 jumpsuits knows it.

    NFL holdouts always remind me of Cleavon Little holding the gun to his own head in "Blazing Saddles." The player suffers a self-inflicted financial wound to convince management he's seriously pissed off about his contract status. Sooner or later, this strategy's limits reveal themselves even to the likes of Terrell Owens, and after a face-saving compromise of some sort, the player returns. If he's bearing a grudge, we all have to wait until he's a free agent to see it."
