The Patriots are hemoraging, losing beloved veterans like Willie Mac, promising young stars like David Givens and they are soon to lose the greatest place kicker in the history of the universe, AV. With almost $20 million in cap space, the Pats have yet to even dabble in free agency. Is this typical BB/Pioli protocol - not overpaying in free agency, not letting emotions get in the way of contract negotiations OR is this a Bob Kraft's passive agressive way of protesting the new CBA? Bob Kraft is letting BB/Pioli run the best run sports franchise in football into the ground so that they will lose fan support and all of the revenue that he has worked so hard to earn. This is Kraft's master plan to stick it to the "low revenue" teams with the publicly fiananced stadiums that fought tooth and nail to get their hands on HIS hard earned revenue. Eventually, fan disgust will ruin the franchise and his revenues will plummet to the lowest in the league. At that point he'll raise his middle finger to the rest of the owners and ask for his CBA "welfare" check. In the meantime, fans will come to realize that Patriot Nation Armaggedon has arrived!!!!!!!!
