    FWIW, on Thursday Colin Cowherd will be interviewing the producer of A Football Life, who also does Hard Knocks. . .

    It's interesting to see Robert Kraft go up to Richard Seymour and ask him "Do you like this team?".

    I'm sure it wasn't the first or last time he said anything like that to Seymour. He was obviously fishing for information and feeling out Seymour to see how contract negotiations would go.

    Kraft probably got the sense that Seymour wasn't going to re-sign, and that's why they traded him that same summer before the season started.

    Brady and Wilfork. That's why Seymour was traded.

    From what I have heard about this it seems as though there is a ton of interesting info. I am excited, and won't even watch the trailer, as not to spoil anything ;)

    What's even better, is there will be a part 2 next week to look forward to all over again!

    So it's the 2009 season, not 2010 that was videotaped as they showed Seymour talking to Mr. Kraft and he says it's his 9th season. Why not show it last year? Did it really take a year and a half to get it edited???

    Yeah. But players take hometown discounts and can find ways to make things work. I'm sure Kraft was poking around to get a feel for Seymour's side of negotiations.

    Perhaps if Seymour responded with "I love playing in New England. I want to retire here" he wouldnt have been traded before the season began.

    They didn't get the green light to release the footage last year.

    Yeah, Richard "holdout" Seymour was going to take a hometown discount. :rolleyes:

    I'm not saying he's wrong, he has every right to seek as much money as he thinks he's worth, but if the Pats thought they couldn't resign him without compromising their ability to keep other players, it probably was the right move.

    Maybe it was. Maybe it wasn't.


    *shrug*.

    I was just pointing out that it was interesting to see Kraft talking with him and asking him "Do you like this team?"...... In a sense, it shouldve been a warning sign to Seymour.

    Kraft clearly wasn't asking Richard if he liked playing for his team, he was asking him if he liked (the makeup of) this team (2009 roster). I believe he answered in the affirmative.

    .... ofcourse he didnt come right out and ask him.

    It's called fishing for information.


    Our 2009 roster wasnt drastically different than our 2008 roster. Kraft was obviously poking around, trying to get a feel for where Seymours head was at.

    I think Bill deserves a bigger fishin' boat...hopefully he could call it VI Rings...or maybe Brady should buy him one and have it named The Next Ring.

    I totally understood and agreed with the trade of Seymour. Thought the same about Branch. In hindsight, I'm now against both trades. The money is tehre for these guys. Granted, I would not be in favor of Raider money to Seymour, but Wilfork +? I think he would have signed.

    I also think they would have gotten Solder regardless, but it may have cost them a Dowling + Vereen.

    Looking back, 3 or 4 years of Branch >>> 3 or 4 years of Meriweather.
    3 years of Seymour >>> Dowling (maybe not, this remains to be seen). I focus on Dowling instead of Solder because the Patriots traded away future picks.

    I also think we would have won at least 1 or 2 more SB by now if we kept Branch and Seymour around. Instead of letting them go.

    You can maybe make an argument for Seymour, although you have to wonder if he wouldn't have been part of the Afailus Thomas malcontent crew.

    Branch and his idiot agent idiotically talked his way out of town à la Moss. There really wasn't much the Pats could do.

    Re: Belichik miked up assistance needed

    I don't know but I did see this quote on an article from bleacherreport

    Bill Belichick: How Well Does New Show Tell Us What's Behind the Hoodie? | Bleacher Report

    "At one point during a Patriots-Ravens game, Baltimore receiver Derrick Mason approaches the New England sideline and says something to Belichick, to which Belichick replies, “Why don’t we talk after the game, alright? Just shut the f–k up.”

    What to do tonight?

    At 9PM Lifetime is having that Love series marathon that Muffy has SO been waiting for and over on Hallmark an absorbing movie where a young woman faces the travails of cold sholder rejection at the Polo Club filmed locally at Myopia Hunt club. The DVR will be recording both so that Muffy does not have to watch all those plebian commercials. Perhaps Patsfans posters could be so kind as to type really fast and post a live transcript blog of that Belachuck thingie on this thread?

    In any case we'll be at our red Fidelity box seats Sunday, drinking our chablis well in advance as that nice young new quarterperson has requested. Ta ta!

    I see many fans with a new found respect for Belichick after tonight's documentary

    There of course will be the usual haters of the best coach in the game regardless of what they see and learn, but I think some fans from other teams may learn more about the guy they loathe and may actually respect the man after the 2 part series on the NFLN ends next week

    They will see the coach that is not behind the mike avoiding idiotic media questions and the one they accused of cheating.

    What they will see is a man who has dedicated his life to football and family and not necessarily in that order.

    They will see a man who enjoys time away doing things away from the game that no one expects him to do...they will see a man who loves his family and spends a lot of time with his sons and his girlfriend

    They will see a guy with a huge sense of humor and a man who will lay down the hammer on the team when things aren't going to plan

    They will see the human side of Belichick and not that stuffed shirt behind the mike we have all come to love as Pats fans :)

    They will realize that when the documentary is over that they never really knew the man behind the hoodie on the sidelines..they will come to realize Bill Belichick is not Just a football coach but behind the scenes is a really great human being.

    I know it won't change every opposing fan's opinion of BB, but if just a few of the thousands of viewers could say "Hmmmm,he's not such a bad guy" after viewing this series then maybe it will smarten them up.

    Or they won't see it because NFL Network isn't even on every cable provider yet!

    Maybe I'm bitter because we just got it and they still haven't given us the HD version of the channel. :)
