    I actually don't mind Peter King. He's about 1,000 times more readable now that he isn't writing about high school girls softball.

    But I couldn't help but roll my eyes at the minor irony in his top 3 items from the 10 Things I Think I Think segment.

    So let me get this straight: You are sick of the Jason Taylor story. So, logically, you leads off with Jason Taylor item, then COMPLAIN about how sick you are of the story, then follow it up with ANOTHER item about Jason Taylor.

    The media really does defy logic.

    Peter King is a moron..I used to like him and I think I ignored some of the stupid things like above he would right because I thought he was knowledgible about football but the Spygate fiasco proved he either doesn't know as much as we thought or he just choses to ignore it. Either way I don't read him anymore.

    Re: Peter Kind Re-Defines Irony

    I have never been a huge fan of King's. Even when he was a major Patriots Yahoo, I always found him lightweight and somewhat preachy, but never taking a stand on much of anything other than moral issue things.

    I am not surprised by anything he writes.

    I read his column, but I do more of just skimming through it to see if anything interests me rather than reading his whole column. I always avoid his 10th bullet point on his Ten things I think I think. I don't care about his daughter or Starbucks.

    Re: Peter Kind Re-Defines Irony

    How does King get away with writing that the Chargers have a second round pick in 2009? I understand a mistake on his part (although I consider that a pretty big faux pas for an NFL writer), but where are the editors or fact checkers?

    Memo to Peter Queen of All Mediots: the San Diego Steroids no longer own their '09 2rd-rounder; that belongs to the NEP now. You're welcome.

    "Bring back Spygate." Bring back Spygate? Are you telling us that you'd rather write about nothing, which is what "Spygate" is, than about actual football players and where they might actually be playing next season?

    I haven't clicked this holier-than-thou turd's byline since Columbus Day...and I haven't missed a damn thing.

    Re: Peter Kind Re-Defines Irony

    King is one of the biggest stooges in the business. And he hates bb which couldn't be more obvious. Anyone who force feeds people girls softball and pro war propoganda in an NFL column deserves to be hung from the tallest tree.

    Re: Peter Kind Re-Defines Irony

    I can't blame King. After all, it's so hard to keep things straight when two first-day draft picks (CAR 1st, SD 2nd) change hands. :bricks:

    Seriously, it wouldn't surprise me if a situation like this was exactly why the Pats were so thrilled when SD offered their second for #69 this year.

    Not to go OT, but Queen is def. not pro-war. He happened to befriend a St.Louis Rams fan who's done multiple tours in Iraq/Afghanistan; his MOS is defusing land mines, IIRC.

    It's Peter King, the man writes so much and says so little!

    What makes that trade even better is that with #69, the Steroids select...Jacob Hester. Maybe they thought that he's Devin Hester's brother.

    That's fine, but it still has no place in a sports column. Sports are a diversion. Nobody wants to be reminded of that stuff when they log onto cnnsi on Monday mornings. Now if the guy happened to be a Pats fan.....

    I think he was kidding when he wrote "bring back Spygate".

    I hope he was kidding. Because otherwise he should be beaten for stupidity.

    I agree, and same goes for his daughters' softball/lacrosse/volleyball/whogivesaratsass, his designer coffee and his byatching about hotels. He's a metrosexual of Greenbergian proportions.

    I loved how he gushed about the recreation of Tyree's catch...it was amusing....I doubt he is as favorable after the Giants lose Week 1 :)

    Do people actually use the word "Oy"?

    He is redefining the term "grudge."

    I hope his giant head gets douched in chocolate and eaten by a bear.
