    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.

    You need to go back to the practice squad for a few more months if this is the kind of thing your going to post in the main forum.

    Noticing and making a ridiculous (and public) inference are two different things.

    It was still a pretty stupid assumption on your part, so it should be quite obvious to you that you're not "feeling the love."

    I recall the camera shots in question. Moss sat between Merriweather and another DB. Brady sat down with Hoyer to his left, Welker to his right, and Edelman to Welker's right.

    The worst of it is that they make the Jewish owners sit in a seperate room. Oh the humanity!

    It's funny to see this thread, I was watching the game yesterday and jokingly called my girlfriend over to show her a clip (probably same one you saw) of all the black guys on the team hanging out then a second later all the white guys. She said about positions, but I pointed out how Moss and Welker were in both clips.

    We both joked about it, but neither of us took it serious. Anyone who has watched the Pats for more than one game knows it's not the case, it just happened to be like that a few times yesterday, likely pure coincidence.

    That being said, anyone who thinks people are 100% color blind are stupid or ignorant, and have definitely not grown up in largely mixed race area. I'd be shocked if any player on the team is a racist, but lets be real, black guys tend to be closer to black guys and white guys closer to white guys. It doesn't mean they hate the other race by any means, it's just the way it is.

    It's the same thing off the field. Every time you see athletes hanging out, they're generally the same race. Mostly because players flock to people who have similar backgrounds and upbringings.
