    I shouldn't touch this with a ten foot pole but just can't help wondering. One particular pan of the Pats bench yesterday brought back visions of Alabama in the 60s. On one end of the bench was Moss with only black players (can't remember who). On the other end was Brady with only white players, Welker and I don't remember who else. I seem to remember Brady and Moss being together a lot on the sidelines in '07 but I have not seen them together at all lately.

    Anyone else notice this? It just looked weird. Perhaps just a coincidence but I have had concerns about team chemistry and this was a bit disconcerting.

    I think its just that positional units sit together. So when you see the O-Line together, it just happens that on our team, its a bunch of white guys. If you see the DBs sit together, it just happens that on our team, there are no white DBs. I see guys like Brady & Moss & Wilfork with just about everybody when it comes to sitting/celebrating on the sidelines.

    Way to make something out of nothing. If you watched most of the pans of the bench, Brady wasn't sitting most of the time. He was walking around all over the place. The few times he wasn't walking, he was sitting next to either Welker, Moss or both.

    BTW, your title is garbage and you really need to change it...Especially since the connotations could mean that Belichick and the coaching staff were responsible.

    Really?

    I mean, F'n really?

    Brady and Moss usually sit together on the bench. Also, look at the receivers that Brady has had a good rapport with: Branch, Moss, Givens, Brown, Gaffney, et al.

    Your stupid if you think race is an issue on a team like the Patriots.

    ugh, at first i wasn't going to touch this with a 12 foot pole but then i just couldn't help myself and be a complete arse (like usual), so is there any way to segregate YOU from the rest of US?

    I thought maybe you were going to be talking positional segregation.

    Bill Madison simply MUST be quoted at this time...

    Apparently not... because they [brady / moss] were were holding hands like a high school couple after Moss's 2nd or 3rd TD... lol

    Yep, you're absolutely right! Belichick has apparently decided that the best way to keep the team in line is to make sure the white players and black players don't sit next to each other. We all know he's big on history, so being the genius that he is, there must be something about segregation that he feels will help the Patriots to another championship.

    I sure hope the other teams don't figure it out as fast as you did, we could be in big trouble.

    Unreal.

    There was actually an article and quote by a player that came here from Seattle. The player's name excapes me. The tight end Christian Fauria, I think. He was quoted as saying it suprised him how well the Patriots were racialy intermingled where as where he came from the players stuck and hung together by race.

    Jim Brown has been quoted as saying BB has done more for the African American cause than many of African American members of the game....specifically being involved with his program of visiting prison inmates.

    As with many other things, the Patriots are leaders in this area.

    Does the OP know anything about the Patriots? It is probably one of the most race- and color-blind organizations in all of sports. I have no idea what he's talking about, other than observing a happenstance on the sidelines. Saying anything more would give this stuff more credit than it deserves.

    I was hoping this whole race-gate thing wouldn't become evident until after the season, but you just completely exposed the pats for what they are, racists.

    ever wonder why pat the patriot is a white guy??????

    Apparently you don't subscribe to the "go with your first thought" strategy....

    Congratulations on posting the dumbest thread I've ever read on Patsfans. That's quite an accomplishment.

    Yes, but only since the ghost of Strom Thurmond became an assistant.

    In a related story, this thread is retarded. Racism is still bad enough; we don't need this kind of dumb s*** muddying things further.
