    Also, Florio obviously read Bruce Allen's BSM piece.

    Walsh intentionally lying

    Noooooooooooooooooooooo, I can't believe it. He seems like such a great kid (sarcasm). I can't believe it took this long for someone in the media, hey PFT counts, to call him something we all knew all along, a liar.

    I agree. Last week, the guy was speculating that the Pats did tape the regular season game. Now he is speculating the opposite. He is playing both sides of the fence to drive traffic to his site. I see this as ESPN putting the loudmouth Joey Porter on camera to keep Spygate alive. No use giving Florio the floor for such an obvious manipulation.

    Although, his possible plaigiarizing BSM's piece is a bit disturbing.

    PFT: Trying To Extend Spygate Until 2010: Why R U Playing Along?

    He needs his hit counts to stay high so he can keep making those ad dollars. Alledgedly, ESPN is intersted in buying his site, so he has to try and stay in lockstep with MTV jr. aka ESPN.

    Dont be PFT lapdogs - frankly its embarrassing.

    It's a nation wide addiction. After 8 months they don't know how to stop. Is there a spygate patch or something ?

    this future ESPN website seller is hoping "Matt Walsh Scratched his Nuts During SB 36' "Matt Walsh Says BB Hates referees"
    will pump up his website sale price and give him the fame he wants....

    Look for Spygate 2040 - "Matt Walsh Says BB Denied Him Access To His Nursing Home" stuff on the interweb.

    He is definitely transparent on this. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if he is posting on his comments fields to rile people up. I played along for awhile, but no more.

    He will post a "Pats are guilty" type of post tomorrow. That's his pattern now. Post stories that appease and riles up both sides.

    It's a double edged sword. On one hand PFT is the only national web site willing to write articles in defense of the Pats, while all the others are either telling fans what they want to hear (your team should have won) or are trying to instigate a riot in order to increase interest (and views, ratings, ad rates and profits - e.g., espn.)

    One one hand I'm bothered that Florio did not credit BSMW and on the other I'm glad he didn't. Florio obviously used thier piece for his own benefit without mentioning his source, a huge journalism gaffe. On the other hand if he had revealed his source, everybody outside of New England would have dismissed it as 'homer journalism' and assumed it was also a 'puff' piece, slanted based on it's origin without even considering its merits - or reading the article beyond the heading where it said "Boston Sports Media Watch." Heck, I've already seen other web sites use this article just for BSMW's title; the original writer as well as commenters pile on as if it's a Gregg Easterbrook column, without (obviously) having even bothered to click on the link and read the article.

    Let's be real. Nothing in that article is going to change anyone's minds either way. Do you really think Patriots haters are going to read what Florio or BSM says and say "Hey, maybe Matt Walsh has an ax to grind." Aint' gonna happen.

    Every single thread associated with Spygate or the Patriots on his site are almost exactly the same. In fact, a little conveniently too much the same. It seems that there is always someone baiting the other side early in the thread. I am really starting to believe that it may be Florio trying to infuriate people to keep posting.

    Of course it is. He and ESPN are both transparent on how they are desperately trying to keep this story alive because of ratings and clicks. Seriously, why did NFL Live have Joey Porter of all people come on and talk about Spygate? Because they know he would run off at the mouth and say something controversal that will grab headlines.

    Re: PFT -Trying To Extend Spygate Until 2010-Why R U Playing Along?

    Why would ESPN be interested in buying PFT? Is Florio and his rumors really that much of a threat to their own web site? Or is it because PFT is the only well known site that exposes ESPN as frauds?

    Once there was a time when monopolistic practices were not allowed, but not today. This takeover will silently go through with both sides smiling while the public has one less contrary voice to help make an informed decision.

    Re: PFT -Trying To Extend Spygate Until 2010-Why R U Playing Along?

    Are you sure ESPN is thinking of buying PFT? I thought Florio left ESPN because they wouldn't let him write the stories that he is writing now for his own site. That's part of the reason why Florio is less than flattering towards ESPN and their writers in his articles.
