    I know that Mariotti is a tool, but anyone who thinks that this was a good trade should read this. He thinks that BB should be investigated.

    this article is not even worth opening. I have much better things to do with my time then read crap like this. Anyone who thinks BB would sell himself or his team short to help out a freind is a complete moron. Its sad that idiots like Mariotti have the ability to influence others.

    Yeah, because Belichick is all about screwing over the Pats to help out a friend.

    I refuse to click on the link, but someone please tell me what supposed rule did BB break this time? For trading with a team that they had every right to trade with. Mariotti is nothing but a sawed-off shrimp with a serious case of "little man's" disease.

    This reminds me of the wrongful borges threads I click on and later want to kick myself as I know my clicking has led to credibility of the author... all they know is that they have another reader.

    The column makes no sense. He alleges impropriety but can't even specify it and backs it up with nothing.

    And people wonder why I wanted to be a sports columnist: because you get to be wrong and it doesn't matter. Heck, it's encouraged. :rolleyes:

    No wonder BB looks like he's going in for a colonoscopy every time he has to talk to these asshats. Too bad BB and Kraft couldn't sue all these clowns for slander somehow.

    PS-Thank you.

    This article = :deadhorse:

    We get it, Jay. You don't like BB and are jealous of Tom Brady (Jay blames Gisele for the AFCCG, the SB, Spygate, and his knee getting blown out). But when most of the comments on your article , made by sports fans who mostly HATE the Patriots, disagree, it's time to hang it up and move on to another topic.

    Jay, take this advice: [​IMG]

    His premise (that BB did something wrong is ridiculous) but the fact that the trade is so one sided that is warranted this article was my point.

    Investigate what again?

    So we're not even allowed to cheat our OWN team?

    This is why it makes me angry that the differently able/mentally challenged sect of our society still struggle to find work when these retards get serious coin to publish the first thing that comes into their heads.

    Mariotti should call for someone to investigate his butthole and see if his brain is in there.

    It's more tongue in cheek about asking for an investigation. The article (after the obligatory spygate reference) basically says that BB traded Cassel to Pioli for a song for a "thank you" for all their success together. Doofus.

    It kind of makes me want to watch the 4 letter network at a certian time to see what he has to say and see if he gets ripped or if he backs down

    So say Belichick did give the Chiefs a sweetheart deal for Cassel to thank Pioli. Who did it hurt? The team that git hurt the most is the Patriots. If the Pats left a mid to high first round pick and possibly another pick or two on the table just to take care of Pioli, they are stupid. But the league shouldn't be involved in it. I believe if a team is stupid enough to take less value for a player in a trade to help out their friend, they have been punished enough.

    There is no NFL rule stating that a team must trade a player to the team that offers the best deal. There is no rule that says a team cannot decide that they will only trade to a certain team. I don't think it is the case here, but if it was the Pats did nothing wrong.

    He references Spygate, but Spygate was all about helping the Pats win. This allegation is all about the Pats trying to help the Chiefs win. If Cassel makes KC a legitimate Super Bowl contender, it hurts the Patriots. It makes no sense that the Pats would help out Pioli.

    Not gonna read it but I still hate the deal no way schaub is worth 2 #2's and we only get one. Sorry that is the most comparable deal to me and getting only one pickup is semi unacceptable

    caught Mortenson on ESPN last night and he seemed to agree. He claimed that the Pats turned down the #12 first round pick from Denver for Cassel and hinted there was something inappropriate going on here.

    On ESPN, "I am too dumb to figure out what BB is thinking" = "there is something inappropriate going on here."

    It's all about what the market is worth. I believe Cassel is worth more too, but when they made the Schaub trade more stocks were worth a whole lot more on Wall Street at that time. The same logic can be said here and unfortunately the Pats had to sell.:mad:

    Borges actually had a good article today on this trade (BB is Einstein in a hoodie). More like he took his friend Pioli.

    Was Schaub worth two 2's? Just because one team messed up, it doesn't mean others should follow suit especially when they have the hindsight of the Schaub deal to observe.

    At least until you invest two minutes of critical thinking into the idea.

    This article is about baiting Pat's fans into raging in his comments section and blowing up his page hits.

    And in other news, Eastabrook is calling on Goodell to investigate why the Indians sold Manhattan for $24 of beads.

    at first, I thought the pats got hosed, but the more I think about it, the more I think it was fair value.......and no, there would have been no #12 pick from denver......it was a 3 way deal with the bucs with the pats getting the bucs #1 suppsedly, and the bucs getting cutler

    fact is, why would BB want to put cassel under the only guy he was successful for? I'd take less from the chiefs, also.......

    but I also believe that deal wasn't real

    hell, even borges is giving BB kudos on this deal saying that BB wouldn't do a favor for his mom.......

    and you can't compare to schaub.....schaub was still under contract for cheap......
