    that was funny

    edit:
    here is king's quote in today's article

    "He said the league's sanctioning the Patriots for cheating "was a black mark on their success ... not that I bet they gained much from it.'' He praised the Patriots and thought they deserved all the credit for winning the three Super Bowls."

    this isnt what king said on hbo. he stopped the quote after "black mark on their success". am i right ?

    I think we need to see the original drafts of his columns over the last 20 years.

    I'm not sure I can trust King, a sportwriter who works for a publication owned by Satan worshipers and terrorist sympathizers.

    Of course I don't have any truth or facts to back that up... just call it a gut feeling.

    I've never really read his stuff before, but I've read a couple since this situation occurred.

    His writing seems more like a precocious 12-year-old writing for a school newspaper than an elite-level sports journalist. Kind of reads like comic book fiction, regardless of whether it is or not. That's just my impression (based on 2-3 articles).

    Without regard he is regarded as one of the best out there right up there with Gosselin, Clayton and a few of the others.. if he was smart he would shut up, but egos prevail.

    I used to like reading King. Now I do believe he's been "exposed" as just another writer(JAW) who is crying because he had to join the ranks of all the other media whores when the Pats and the NFL FO toed the line of "no comment" after their punishment and decision was handed out. He is really committing hara-kiri as he continues to throw out accusations with no basis in fact, all the while ignoring logic and common sense.

    Ya know, I agree with everything you said, except I just wanted to say that Favre's wife's book is actually a really good book, and I highly recommend it - for women who have had, are in the middle of, or are worried about breast cancer - and I recommend it for men who have women in their lifes who have had, are in the middle of, or worried about breast cancer.

    This was linked from the BSM story (from dallascowboys.com):

    http://www.dallascowboys.com/news.cfm?id=95D4A38C-9032-1E36-00B0C8BD38EA2469

    Too perfect. Find one incident, then dig into the past and you can find countless other incidents. Exactly what the sports media did to the Pats, in spite of the fact that you could find similar incidents with ANY team and ANY writer. What we need is a SI competitor with an anti-King agenda to follow this up with the same type of smear job they did with the Patriots...which, of course, probably won't happen, since they'd quickly be called out for calling the kettle black...
