    It seems true, and if it is, I'm happy. The preseason is long enough with out an extra game and a trip halfway around the world.

    Didn't see that coming.

    It isn't a joke, either.

    Did anyone else go to the Broncos game last year and see that terrible half time show that was like celebrating the China Bowl or something? It was bizarre and not in a good way.

    Funny, I noticed the infamous 3effen (aka bob4sports) predicted this this AM over on Indy Star based on something he was hearing from his sources. Said it was a logistical nightmare and would have to be postponed until after the 2008 Olympics.

    So I wonder now do we still go to Seattle at all for a pre season game???

    What will Glenn Ordway do now, he was pimping a travel excursion to this game big time... he won't be going for free now, this cancellation is a good thing for the Pats, BB does not like change.

    I thought it was a joke with a bogus link, but I guess it is true unless Peter King is pulling a fast one.

    I'm glad to see the game going away. We have a legitimate shot at the Super Bowl and the preseason schedule could really derail us at the begging of the season.

    SI has pulled this crap before on April Fools day. You remember Sid Finch years ago?

    It certainly appears legit. On the other hand, if it is a joke, King picked the wrong story to screw with and will undoubtedly catch heck for it from the league.

    It is legit from what I can tell. It is his MMQB collumn which is not read widely before Monday. Monday is not April Fools Day. Besides, look at the time it was posted, 8:01 PM. Why wait until this time of the night to post it if it were a joke?

    So they subjected me to that whacky halftime show at the Sunday night game against the Broncos for nothing? Damn.

    what are the odds that the Pats try to wiggle their way out of the 2009 game?

    It seems Kraft was the one who really wanted to play (certainly not BB), so I'd say Kraft still would want to go back in 2009.

    Oh no. A rift between BB and Kraft! BB must be out of here by 2009. Call Felger! :bricks:
