Mike Reiss has clearly worked hard. he has developed some innoivative approaches to covering the Patriots and produced new innovations in reporting on players, play formations, and other stats not ever seen before, by just shear effort and digging. Now Billl Belichick who always notes the hard workers and has rewarded him with a long interview that all the other media "Dahlinks" of the Boston Sportwriter's world would "simply die for". http://www.boston.com/sports/footba...007/01/27/belichick_weighs_in_on_2006_season/ I can hear wRONg Bore-gas grinding his teeth even from here in Arizona. In addition ot rewarding his hard work, Belichick and Kraft knew that an inadvertant errant phrase or two, would not be jumped on to obviate the overall story that the interviews produced. For certain, a Felger, Borges or others would have looked long and hard for the slant and ignored the real story. Well done Mike Reiss!! Take Bore-gas's job!!
