    Yeah, leaving out parts of a quote really can make a difference...

    He was actually using it as a counter example of how things SHOULDN'T be perceived...not as how he perceives them.

    And then these same people talk badly about BB because he doesn't say anything and doesn't allow his players to really say much... Gee I WONDER FRIGGIN WHY!

    Thanks for the full quote. That's what I thought he had said, and the way ESPN is spinning it was really pissing me off.

    Sports media will do whatever it takes to make an interesting story. I almost always give athletes and coaches the benefit of the doubt when you hear a nasty quote, or some otherwise un-well-documented situation (to a certain extent anyway).

    Since sports journalists are not held to the same standards as real journalists, there's big time incentive and opportunity there to get the scoop, get a sensational story, and advance your career. Good reporting is always secondary to creating a good story. Don't trust sports media.

    No Jersey Selected

    Let's see if this gets legs and morphs into one more negative about how arrogant the Pats are.

    they played the whole quote and asked mark schelerth and he says its garbage what gay is saying. There is a right way to win and wrong way to win..blah blah...Buffalo is not as talented etc
    No one hints that he wasnt talking about the bills.

    Schlereth(sp) just went on a small rant against it. Saying it's not the Bill's fault they suck. He then threw a few barbs at Gay and BB.

    If I'm not mistaken, I swear he was sticking up for Indy back in '04 or '05 when the same topic was brought upagainst them (on a much smaller scale, none the less).

    My only problem with Gay's comments is that they could become bulletin board material. Or maybe I've been following this team too long.

    It is stupid to trump this up, but as an aside, I will say that the concept was poorly executed in terms of how it was explained.

    While I think we all understand what Gay was trying to say, he has, unfortunately, given other teams bulletin board material.

    But leave it to Schlereth to completely twist this thing around and misquote what was actually being said.

    Further proof that Schlereth hates the Patriots and continues to be the biggest dipsheeot on TV.

    They do. I sent Schlereth a scathing letter last year of how could he possibly keep his job at ESPN when its so obvious to the rest of the country that he was as stupid as jackass in antartica.

    I believe its either MSchlereth@ESPN.com or MarkSchlereth@ESPN.com or something along those lines.

    I don't have it at the moment
