    This is in another thread as well but it is at the end of a long thread. I just went to a dinner with BB. I recorded the event so I could transcribe it for my self and those who went with me. Can/should I post it here and what is the best way to post 7 pages of a word doc.

    The event was private and i am wondering if you think it would be wrong to post it here?

    any advice from the mods here would be great? anyone else too?

    Give it a shot. Really...what's the worst that could happen? It gets deleted? It won't post? It should be a good read and you did put the effort into it.

    Personally, I'd love to hear it, but Pats1 is right. Better to PM Ian about that.

    I also was at the dinner and indeed it was awesome.

    I would like to know how Ian feels about posting the entire speech or even uploading it,,,,My thoughts are that it may be better to simply write some of the highlights as opposed to potentially upseting the good folks from the Patriots that put this terrific experience together. I would hate to ruin it for anyone in the future.

    My question was... Are you motivated to make this team the best there ever was? His answer was...well sure that’s our goal every year to win every game look if that wasn’t our goal than we shouldn’t be here. This was a follow up to a much longer answer about what motivates him in which he said success and winning along with commitment to the team ans everyone that has been involved throughout all the years they have put into this thing. Then he said the rings aren't bad either (everyone laughed).

    He is really a nice guy, took pictures with all of us, shook hands was funny and seemed to really enjoy speaking with us and sharing his stories. He really is as warm, charming and funny as people have said as opposed to the persona we are told by the media.

    I have had the opportunity to meet him twice and find him to be a very unassuming man who is brilliant, funny and well grounded.. love to see the speech.

    The fact that they allowed you to record the event, and assuming that there were no signs or announcements saying specifically that you shouldn't record it, then I don't see why it would be a problem to post it here.

    I agree..this is an Ian decision....I really don't know about the audio being posted...maybe the words..or the highlights from that...but again..you were allowed to tape it..OR there were no big signs about it...It does sound awesome though..really great!!

    That's how I would see it. If they said "no cameras or recording devices" then you shouldn't post pictures or a transcript. If they didn't say that, it wouldn't seem to matter. Of course I'm biased as I'd love to read it :)

    I had a little audio recorder so they probably didnt even know I recorded it. It wasn't like I had a big video camera out the whole time. I am kind of leaning toward not posting it because I don't want to ruffle any feathers.

    If there weren't any announcements or sign prohibiting recording the event, then it IS allowed. Sounds to me that you are just getting lazy, and don't want to take the time to transcribe it for us. ;)

    I want to hear what happened. Its an inside view of BB we JUST DON'T GET from the normal media...even though no one asked him my question about the Delaware Wing-T :D

    I'm not a mod on this forum but I don't see a problem posting it if there were no restrictions about recording it.

    If you have photos of good looking women who were at the event, then go ahead and post it on the Ladies Lounge forum.:rocker:

    If by publishing this information you feel you will be betraying an implicit trust, you should not do so. Our interest is great, but in the end it's just football, and private, unscripted moments should not be exploited.

    It's not like he has a naked picture of him. It seems quite simple, if it said something about no recording devices, etc, it should be left alone. If it said nothing, no big deal. I doubt any trade secrets were given :rolleyes:

    I'm with Pony Express here. Much as I'd love to read it, it was a private occasion.

    However, if you want to share a tidbit or two, untranscribed, no audio, that would be fine.

    If members of the PUBLIC are invited, it's not a PRIVATE occasion. It may be by invitation only to season ticket holders, friends of players, or whatever. But if a group of the PUBLIC is there, even a select group, it's still not private.

    Whatever, it's not a big deal, but this private thing is a bit silly.

    Yeah, I'm with Pony et. al. on this one... I mean, the law is one thing, and whether toes would be stepped on is another.

    I don't know the nature of the event, and that's what it seems to hinge on. Think about it this way - if you believe it was private, give BB's reps on the Patriots a call, and see how they feel about you posting.

    My guess it that didn't occur, because we all suspect the official team response would be a no. But of course, maybe not.

    I'd go real easy, as a fan, since my reporting function wasn't known. It's also "on them" to make the rules clear... but at the same time, they've shown you the courtesy of having you at the private event, so you show them the courtesy of getting permission.

    That's just me though... the paradox is, if you do post it, hell yes I'll read it!

    Welcome to the hypocritical world of publishing.

    Well I'm with Belichickfan on this one-it's not like they were at BB's daughter's wedding and would be reporting on what went on-it was a question and answer session between BB & fans, not a private function with his relatives!

    My guess is that BB answered the questions in such a way that nothing confidential was said. He isn't stupid; he knows that anything he says at such an event is likely to end up in the public domain. A truly private meeting would be one involving officials from the Pats or the NFL. That said, I would get permission from him. It shows respect for him and reflects well on the board.

    If not appropriate for this site, how about contacting Laura from All Things Belichick??.. she seems to like this type of thing and it is not in conflict with this site, this might be a consideration.

    if it was "on the record" and BB knew that what he was saying would be made public, post it.

    I agree with Mr Cat (he must have sobered up again ... ;))

    You were not told that the session was on a confidential basis, so you should feel free to pass on any ideas or information that were given there to a thousand or so of your close friends.

    ON THE OTHER HAND, recording and transcribing, especially if it was done without explicit permission is another thing. Anyone who speaks in public should have no problem with their ideas being passed on but they would be entitled to offended if someone recorded and transcribed what was said -- especially if they did not ask permission first.

    My advice is: contact the Patriots and ask permission to post a transcript. If they say "no", still feel free to use your recording as notes from which to give us a FULL report.

    (And: many thanks -- your account of the evening has already put a big smile on my face!)

    Some people just don't seem to be equipped to be able to decide right and wrong for themselves. They need it spelled out by a decree. Others can figure it out on a case by case basis. It seems our thread originator has made such a decision on what is right and wrong in this situation. I support it.
