    SMY,

    That's a helluva job. Please share with your fellow patsfans members anything you can about your process out-scooping the other outlets in town. Congrats on a job well done, in a competitive market!

    I would love to take the bow for my first big "first," and I will share more once the dust clears a bit.

    But thank you. I'm very excited, and was *really* scared someone else would be me. I've known for a couple of days and promised I wouldn't say anything til late tonight (Sunday)...

    Interesting.

    The doofus on Sports Extra reported the newest news is the Pats don't expect Asante back anytime soon.

    I hope they're wrong.

    Yeah, I saw that too. They probably got their information from Borges.

    Good job! I know it must be difficult for writers to get all these juicy scoops knowing they can't do anything with it (at least until a certain time) or risk having all your sources dry up quickly. I am horrible at keeping a secret especially something as big as this. Congrats on the scoop.

    Congrats on the coup, Ms. Young.

    Think about it -- you not only beat out the bigger local papers like the Globe and Herald, but with all the national guys like Schefter, Clayton, King, et al.

    You wrote it the way it came to you, the worse that could happen is a source singes you and you get some ungentle ribbing from those ink-stained wretches you hang with (not that any of them have ever had a source twist their tails ;) ). Just tuck into a lotus position and make meaningless noises in lieu of chewing your nails or drinking yourself senseless.

    p.s. Shalise - please make sure there's someone to record and post your victory dance in the parking lot when Asante drives in.

    I think you'll continue to do awesome. The Boston sports media market is starting to fill up with writers who want to be the story rather than provide what fans really want.....

    Real good old fashioned reporting and breaking news as you've done this evening.

    It's very refreshing and we thank you.

    BTW.....KFFL just posted the story.

    "Patriots | Samuel to report Monday
    Sun, 26 Aug 2007 21:25:30 -0700

    The Providence Journal reports New England Patriots CB Asante Samuel, who has missed all of training camp, is expected to report to the team Monday, Aug. 27, and sign his one-year, $7.79 million franchise tag tender."

    Hmm... it's 7:00 now... Samuel needs to get there before an 8:00 meeting to sign tender... wonder how many reporters are camped out in the parking lot right now.

    Congrats SMY.

    Shalise--now that you seem to have the inside scoop with Asante, I'd love an answer to a burning question I have--did he purchase injury insurance? Even better--how much did he pay for how much coverage?!?
