    I just saw on KFFL that Tomase and the Herald ran a piece Friday on the negotations with Walsh and the NFL, it also said that lawyers for the Patriots were taking part in the talks. I'm stunned that this hasn't broken over the wire !! and that ESPN isn't running it on thier web page ? This is the first time the NFL gave any indications there was progress and that the Patriots lawyers are actually directly involved in the talks. That's news to me!

    Sounds like the same old same old. Just a slightly different variation. I think we're all tiring of the 'coming close' to an agreement BS. Wake me up when they actually agree on something. Not when theyre close. This story is running on fumes right now. I dont think it really has anything to do nessecarily with this Tomase bonehead. Although he is wasting everyone's time reporting once again on something ALMOST being done.

    What's the problem? At least he didn't go "LOOK WHAT TOMASE SAID!" and just post a link to get that little freak hits.

    I think he got what you meant, I did.....all I know is Tomase is non existent to me. I do not care to see, hear or know anything that he chooses to belch in any form.

    When news comes from credible sources - I will be all over it and feel it has merit.

    I will never forget what Tomase needlessly did - how he did what he did and when he did it. There was no need, no new story or news there -- he simply tried to make a name for himself and get ahead.

    As far as I am concerned - he is dead to me, forever.

    Re: Sports Media ignoring Tomase ????

    I disagree with a lot of what's in the press, but even more I disagree with hitting people over the head for sharing it.

    I think that the reason this isn't all over the sports media is, as others here say, that there's nothing substantiated in here, other than what's already known. So he might be right, or we might be talking about three months and a puff of disinterest, because Walsh won't talk without indemnification from slander, and the Pats don't like waiving their right to sue for defamation, slander, etc. There's also the subject of stolen property, if, as has been hinted, he's retained possession of a tape of the winning field goal.

    The Rams walk-through talk, if you ask me, is crap. But we'll all see... perhaps the whole lead-up is meant to make the "hearings" coincide with the start of the NFL regular season ;)

    Re: Sports Media ignoring Tomase ????

    Looks like Tomasse has to follow this through to keep the job he's going to get fired from anyways. :rofl:

    Seems to me the big chalupa is trying to save the Heralds rep ...
    I think I would have a real reporter doing that if I were the Herald.

    So the real news is how much above an intern will chalupa be in the end?

    The one you know about any story that fat piece of crap writes is that it does not come from the Pats. Just the same old sh-t warmed over.

    I have no idea how much to blame Tomase is for the publication of the initial article or even this one.

    However, it is interesting to keep in mind that sports writers work for sports editors who work for the editor who works for the publisher.

    If you think that a story of this nature didn't get approved all the way up the line, you need to open your eyes to the reality of the publishing world.

    Also the bottom line of the publishing world is - and I think all of you know this, but may forget about it from time to time in the heat of criticizing specific individuals - is - to sell papers and advertising. Period.

    If you are keeping an open mind, you may want to consider that Tomase may not even have been the one to get the 'tip'. He may have just been assigned to write the story.

    And contrary to getting fired for publishing the article (when it was approved ahead of time by his management hierarchy) - he may well have gotten fired or whatever if he refused to put his byline on the story. Hmmm. We'll probably never know the straight of it. But leave open just the wee bit of a possibility that Tomase may not be quite the villain you think he is.

    I KNOW this.Period. I don't read the Herald anymore because of mutts like Tomainesi...so they are WASTING advertising dollars trying to reach ME. Since I don't consider myself to be part of some insignificant minority, I would hazard a guess that they are SPITING their face by BITING OFF their own nose

    The ironic thing is that the result of the article is the loss of readership and advertising.

    Re: Sports Media ignoring Tomase ????

    The thing is for most of us I think is that Tomase/Herald has lost any shred of credibility it had left after running the Spygate/Walsh story on Superbowl weekend, thus creating a dark cloud on an otherwise high point in the season.

    I think most of the media is realizing this and therefore taking anything Tomase says with a grain of salt before actually believing him.

    I swore off reading the Herald (except sports) a few years back following those horrible stories that pry-ed into the private lives of BB, Brady and others kept appearing in the ugly beatches gossip writers columns.

    After Tomase, his editors and publishers allowed that story to appear at that time with no credibility and no new news...it was time to totally end my lifetime readership of that paper.

    Screw the Herald and screw Tomase - had he done an ounce of investigating and come up with a fair and balanced piece, that would be different. He did nothing but sensationalize a story at a time of celebration and joy for the game and the football team.

    No good ever came out of that story........I hope he is happy. Actually, I hope he and his newspaper gets sued after all is said and done.

    The Herald might as well not bother to cover the Pats anymore. I doubt they will get any information except second hand by reading Reiss's column in the Globe.

    In which case, he probably would have sued the H****d. Or, at the very least, have said or done something--at least get a rumor started--to the effect that it was, in fact, a hit job.

    Is it possible? Yes. Is it the most likely scenario--especially given what we already know about the H****d? Sadly, no.
