    He's absolutely spot on. I'm sure the Pats did their due-diligence on Hernandez. But you can't be big brother 24/7 to these guys.

    There was a big stink in Dallas about having security staff assigned to Dez Bryant. . . .

    It's hard to be that self-righteous all of the time. Sometimes you forget and become just righteous for a spell.

    But good for him.

    IDK, Edwards did defend the Pats during Spygate. He said he knew the Pats were taping the defensive signals and didn't care because he thought it was no big deal hence why he was reportedly seen waving to the camera guy in one of the tapes (which he confirmed).

    Yeah, I also kinda recall those words from Hermie during Cameragate.

    The worst I can say about him is that he wasn't a very good NFL HC. Tony Dungheap, OTOH...

    Always enjoyed listening to him on M&M. He is just being consistent with the same message he has been saying for a while.

    Players have to be responsible for themselves.

    I really don't see how anyone can attack the Patriots in this situation. Typical America these days. "Oh no, who must we blame in this situation" :rolleyes: The Patriots, like the other 31 NFL teams, did their research ...They aren't required to monitor their players 24/7...that would be called stalking.

    As a caller on 98.5 pointed out this morning: Not a whole lot of finger-pointing at the Chiefs last year after the whole Jevan Belcher situation. Difference this time is ... it's the Patriots.

    Anyone blaming the Patriots or Gators is just looking for a scapegoat. Aaron Hernandez is to blame for Aaron Hernandez.

    Every Patriots fan thinks the media is anti-Patriots. Every Steelers fan thinks the media is anti-Steelers. Every Cowboys fan thinks the media is anti-Cowbos. And on and on...

    I've never thought that Herm Edwards had it out for the Patriots, nor do I think that most national pundits do (except maybe Marshall Faulk on his bad days.) Locally, there are a few rabble rousers who like to stir things up. The Spygate situation was blown up to ridiculous proportions, and maybe that is why people are so sensitive. Still, I think the main reason why fans of their own team thinks they are slighted by the media is because most media members aren't enormous homers.

    You're right. It just seems like Boston "sportswriters" have it in for the Patriots, in particular, a few fine pieces of work.

    True, the bottom line is the individual is responsible for his actions; although, Florida turned its head on a number of occasions, as do many college programs.

    In my opinion, it's more than "just seems like." A bunch of them do. Borges, Felger, Mazzarotti, Shaughnessy, MacMullan, Buckley, Gasper, Dupont, Callahan, Ryan (to some degree), Tomase...just those who immediately come to mind...

    I have a particular disgust for Callahate,Jacks....it's like he graduated from Chelmsford High and then UMASS...and then went into a fallout shelter for 25 years re-emerging to peddle his peculiar brand of parochialism...

    On September 29, 2003, during a segment called 'headlines', where they read and comment about current news stories, Callahan and his morning co-host John Dennis made what were perceived to be racially insensitive remarks while discussing a story about an escaped gorilla.[2] The gorilla had escaped from the Franklin Park Zoo and had been recaptured at a bus stop. According to newspaper articles, the exchange allegedly was:[3]

    Callahan: "They caught him at a bus stop, right -- he was like waiting to catch a bus out of town."

    Dennis: "Yeah, yeah -- he's a METCO gorilla."

    Callahan: "Heading out to Lexington."

    Dennis: "Exactly."

    METCO is a state program that buses inner-city Boston students to nearby suburban schools. Many perceived the comments to be comparing poor, mostly African-American children to gorillas. WEEI general manager Tom Baker suspended both hosts for two days, then extended the suspension to two weeks after the Blue Cross-Blue Shield (Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts) pulled $27,000 in ads and in turn donated that money to METCO. Dunkin' Donuts responded by ceasing all advertising that involved the voices of John Dennis or Gerry Callahan.[4] Both hosts apologized and were sent to sensitivity training. WEEI also agreed to provide free advertising for the METCO program on the radio station. In November 2003, WEEI General Manager Tom Baker was replaced by Julie Kahn. Station executives denied there was a connection between the METCO incident and Baker's replacement.[5] Nowadays, both Dennis and Callahan regularly mock their sensitivity training punishment.

    Totally agree. It's not only the youth but the scientists, shrinks, economists, politicians, etc. Like, my child is super hyper active and I don't have the energy to keep up with him. His chems must be imbalance so let's pump him full of drugs. Sheesh. It's called being a kid.
