He got his cheers and accolades when he was a Patriot. F**k him he's Colt now. Boo his a** !
i guess you are right but i think he is going to get booed badly...
I feel the same. I love him for what he did as a Pat but he is the enemy now...a Colt.
Agreed. Adam will be booed same as any other opposing kicker. Any thing more would be to forget the heroics he performed for us.
Having said that, I can't help but think the right thing for him to do would have been to take the Pats offer.
I dont think Adam really understands what he threw away when he left New England. He could have been up there with the all time greats of Boston sporting history, but he showed his true colors when he defected to our biggest rival. Had he stayed with the Pats or even gone to someone like Dallas or Green Bay he could have made ten times the money he made during his career from endorsements in New England after he retired, but do you think anyones going to want him now?
The fact that he doesnt realize that he will be booed every time he comes out to kick is a little sad. Its like the Johnny Damon situation, as fans we may be disapointed when a player leaves to another team, but if they go to our biggest rival that cannot be forgiven. To me and most people Ive talked to we love the Adam Vinatieri that played for the Pats, but once he gave all Pats fans the finger for a slightly larger amount of money we wish him nothing but missed kicks and bad luck.
I was miffed when V signed with the Colts, but I still agreed that he should be remembered for what he did for the Pats when he was here and still would have cheered for him. That changed, however, when he expressed his true feelings before the season and started pissing and moaning about being franchised. His own admission about not even giving the Pats a chance to match any offer to "show them" for franchising has made me dislike him. I don't know if I would boo or just be silent were I at the stadium, but I certainly wouldn't be cheering.
Shoot, nevermind. Already married.
This "dead to me" person expects to be booed, does he?
Well, everyone should just turn their backs to him in dead silence. That would be much more effective.
Why would they want to boo someone who passed away last March?
I'll bet he'll get cheered if he misses a FG!
The cheers will come when he retires and visits.
But he is a Colt now.
But he knowingly slapped the fans in the face with his decision.
I know he had every right to make that decision.
And the fans have every right to boo him!
We will cheer when the Vinitraitor misses a clutch FG attempt in the upcoming Colts debacle at Gillette.
This is my feeling on the situation......The Pats offer was not that far off.......and ....most importantly....how much money is ENOUGH....for these guys??????......Vinny would have continued to make a TON of cash in endorsements............would have always been regarded as a NE icon.....and now....he is making a little bit more money......and is HATED by Pats fans......I WILL always remember him for what he did to help the Pats win 3 SB's....I WILL also strongly dislike the guy's character for his decision to leave his legacy......for more money......really disappointed me (and my kids) as a fan........
I'm already nervous about seeing him in person- wondering how I'll react, etc. Like knowing you're going to see an ex-spouse at an upcoming wedding.
I wish I was kidding.
I wish I could be there to boo his dead to me self.
he will get boos... maybe a few cheers, but comparing it to the damon and pedro situation.
damon went to the enemy was largely booed
pedro went to someone else and was cheered loudly for what he had done for the sox.
I am hoping more than anything else in the game that maroney breaks a kickoff and gives him a signature stiff arm to the colt emblem
Most estimates of endorsement money like this one are greatly exaggerated... he'd have to make well over $100M in the next 30 years for this to be true, and if the king of endorsements Manning is making 10M per year that's not real likely. And Manning does mostly national endorsements, local/regional endorsements pay less. He certainly will lose some money in future New England endorsements but perhaps not enough to make teh New England offer more lucrative, plus he probably preferred the bird in hand (more money right now from Indy).
As was mentioned if He was neither cheered nor booed, the silence would
Might even rattle Him a little. You know "The Sounds of Silence" !!
Picture it, the entire stadium standing and turning thier backs to the field
when He trots on to attempt a FG.
Just daydreaming, .............carry on...................pfft !
I vote for the complete silence, these guys get booed everytime they go to an opposing stadium, they are used to it. dead silence might play a serious head game though
That Hoodie is one lucky lady! :rocker:
Much too intelligent a response. Have you applied for a quality control position with the Pats? There's definite potential.
She's lucky because I'm already married? Man, your digs are subtle.
Thanks T-Shirt. That's sweet but I'm going to have to check your past posts before I give you a definitive answer.
It'll never happen, but that would get in a players head: No crowd response at all. No cheers, no boos, no turning around, just nothing. Even boos are an acknowledgement and can fire up an opponent.
On the other hand, Pedro's mind and game turned to total goo after the lovefest he received upon his return to Boston.
You can move to Utah.:rocker:
