    Holy ****. That's all I can say. F*CK him. What a douche. I seriously haven't read one word he'd typed since that article until this one, and that's just hilarious right there. Funny how he didn't include that line on Feb 2nd.

    That douche bag ruined the days leading up the Super Bowl for all the fans in New England, and who knows if the media shytstorm that he helped perpetuate had any effect on the players.

    F*ck Tomase. Seriously, he needs to get fired and ASAP.

    In fairness to Tomase, he did report that his source was unclear whether Belichick authorized or even knew about the taping of the walkthrough. That is a strong arguement for Tomase not printing the story unless he had more evidence or independent coorboration. Tomase is guilty of bad journalism, but his blog today doesn't change what I think of him.

    Tomase would be wise not to be seen in public for the foreseeable future in the New England market. I fear this has become a dangerous place for him.

    Believe it or not, we do have some nut jobs around here!;)

    From the comments section below the article...

    "Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time."

    That didn't take very long now did it?

    Actually he did say that his source was not sure if the videotaper was authorized by Belichick or if Belichick was even aware of the tape ever existing. Of course the rest of the media overlooked that part because it wasn't juicy enough.

    Sorry, but he did put the disclaimer that the source was not aware whether Belichick authorized the tape or even knew about it at all.

    The Hearld article is archived and can't be accessed for free, but here is an exerpt from the Globe's article on February 2nd:

    You can blast Tomase for a lot of things, but changing his story is not one of them.

    Are you sure about that? I had though that the globe had put the disclaimer in but not the Herald.

    I really don't think that was in Tomase's original article. I could be wrong, but it is certainly not my recollection that Tomase put in such a disclaimer, at least not in the same kind of wording the Globe did. Keep in mind Tomase did a lot of tinkering with the article as days went on and the Herald began to realize how irresponsible the article was.

    100% sure. Tomase did put the disclaimer. People on this board blasted Tomase for that very point of his article at the time.

    It does not matter B. I've never liked the guy and I will continue to not read his material. He didn't do his research. Before you put out something like that, if you are a responsible reporter, shouldn't you do some research?
    His article hurt a lot more people than just BB.

    Here is the exerpt of Tomase's original article via AOL:

    http://sports.aol.com/fanhouse/2008...riots-accused-of-filming-rams-before-super-b/

    Again, you can blast Tomase for a lot of things, but he did put that disclaimer in his original story.

    I agree, his article really put a damper on the SB week for a lot of fans. And as I said before, we'll never know if that whole media nightmare had some effect on the players and or coaches.
