    Not sure if this has already been posted considering all the posting time stamp problems we're having now, but this was just replayed on WEEI.

    It apparently was an interview on an Indy or national radio station with NaPolian, who basically read the [URL="http://www.patsfans.com/new-england-patriots/messageboard/showthread.php?t=66434] Colts' statement[/URL] from yesterday, and then proceeded to decry PFT, without naming it, as a "disreputable blog site" that shouldn't be reported as fact by "mainstream" media members.

    Oh, and he did refer to the Patriots as the Pay-TREE-otts as usual.

    As much as I hate him, I totally agree. How people put any stock in PFT info is beyond me.

    So, he doesn't deny adding crowd noise to teh PA system. He only denies that the sound we heard on CBS was from the PA.

    Re: NaPolian: "Disreputable blog sites"

    What I dont understand is if there was an obvious oddity in the CBS feed that sounded like there was pumped in noise, and CBS took the responsbilitiy for it, why is Polian so fired up over it.
    Why slam anyone reporting it, if there was clearly an issue, and they reported the issue and assumed what caused it? It was reasonable to make that assumption. It was cleared up.
    Somehow, it seems like Polian is too upset about this.

    Florio is a douche, but he will be on Polian like stink on sh!t for the rest of the year. It'll be fun to watch at the very least.

    Re: NaPolian: "Disreputable blog sites"

    I just passed this along to him tonight and he thanked me. I had actually sent him a note about an interview Polian did on some Indy radio station that was replayed on 'EEI, where he essentially said the same thing as in his Colts.com interview (see the first post of this thread). The next day, Florio posted this:

    And then he was also the one who posted my mp3 of "the play" that is now circulated around everywhere.

    So Florio does get a few points in my book for doing that. I guess sending him 10 e-mails since Sunday helps too. :)

    Re: NaPolian: "Disreputable blog sites"

    Since CBS took responsibility for it and obviously knows what caused it, why can't they do a quick recreation of the problem? If the sound pattern matches (at least to a reasonable degree), game over.

    I think the weird sound was only fed through the CBS feed. I'm assuming CBS (and others) have broadcast games in loud domes before, yet I can't remember a similar glitch in the past. Why did it happen in this game, at that particular point in the game?

    If the Colts are enhancing noise when opponents have the ball, that strikes at the heart of competitive integrity. NFL security should monitor the PA system at the dome, which should be SILENT (meaning easy to check) when the opponents have the ball. Will they do it? Think they are watching the Pats' sidelines for cameras?

    Bill Polian and Mike Florio go at it

    So Polian keeps on taking very thinly veiled swipes at Mike Florio and PFT. I don't know if that is a smart thing. Eventhough a large number of the stuff Florio posts on his site are eventually proven wrong, many things that he posts actually have a lot of legs even if they are ultimately proven wrong and look foolish in hindsight like the Randy Moss getting cut rumor. I don't know if Polian wants Florio to be trying to dig up dirt on him and the Colts. Polian's arrogant and abrassive attitude may eventually catch up to him.

    Here is the latest from PFT with Polian's shots and Florio's counters:

    Re: NaPolian: "Disreputable blog sites"

    Polian is used to getting his way, be it in the league or by bullying people but I think that this is the first time he's gone after a member of the media and that is one battle that he can't win. Florio was the one who keep the Vick issue alive after others ignored it and look how that turned out........
