    And the coach isn't the only person quick to stomp players seeking special treatment.

    Scott Pioli, director of player personnel, recalls one free agent the Patriots brought in for a physical examination and interview. When he took a seat in Pioli's office — a windowless, unremarkable room in the heart of Gillette Stadium — the player opened the conversation with a complaint: The club didn't fly him first class the way other interested teams did.

    "I looked at him and said, 'You're serious?' And he said, 'Yeah, I'm serious!' '' Pioli said. Pioli thanked him for his time and, to the surprise of the slack-jawed player, abruptly showed him the door.

    "It took me less than a minute to figure out what that kid's priorities were," Pioli said.



    Anyone know who that player is?
