    I was curious about the history of the NFL MVP award, so yesterday I went to Wikipedia to check on it. According to the site the 2007 winner was Tom Brady. I was surprised, and I figured I would post it here later today (I just got back from the park.)

    I went back there and it has now been removed. So I wonder if a member of the media leaked it, or if it is just speculation/optimism from a Tom Brady fan.

    Here is the evidence:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php...gue_Most_Valuable_Player_Award&action=history

    On the page's "edit history" you can see that the member "J. Matthew Bailey" removed this information at 21.56. The reason was (/Took out Brady as 2007 MVP: No announcement until later this week)

    The poster has been involved in a lot of NFL wikipedia editing, and I wonder if he is an inside source with knowledge of the situation.

    Addendum: It appears that this guy is a Patriots fan. Still it seems out of character for him to add something based on speculation.

    I know some here can hardly believe it, but it is a foregone conclusion. There are only 50 AP voters, and they talk amongst and poll themselves. I'm sure the word has leaked out since it's not earthshattering news.

    Right, because no one ever alters Wikipedia for any other reason than to add completely factual information.

    One of my favorite Wikipedia tidbits was under the Lawrence Phillips page, where the last sentence in the entry was "Lawrence Phillips is widely considered one of the greatest human beings who ever lived."

    I added an entry in wikipedia about the time I had sex with Gisele while Tom watched. Where's my thread?

    Yeah, anyone can add/delete content, so it means nothing. But there is little doubt that he will be.
