    I was shocked to read that someone calling themselves a Pats fan would make the following demands in return for handing over a football the Patriots want to send off to the Hall of Fame to commemorate Flutie's drop kick - the first since 1948:

    ''1. Payment of ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND ($100,000.00) DOLLARS [lawyer's capitals] on delivery of the football.

    ''2. A guarantee of eight (8) season tickets for 25 years in the end zone (preferably sections 142 or 143).

    ''a. The season tickets will be paid for annually by my client at the then going price for season tickets. The Patriots would not be expected to pay for the tickets.

    ''3. Delivery by the Patriots to my client sometime in September, 2006, of a Tom Brady Patriots' football jersey signed by all the team members as of the beginning of the next football season."


    Obviously the Pats aren't going to pay the guy $100,000.

    If he doesn't want to give it up that's fine - but no reason to be a jerk about it.

    Why doesn't he just demand that Tom Brady name his firstborn son after him while he's at it?
