    I guess it's a slow news day in the sports world so why not re-run an old story and kick the Pats in the balls again? Just like killing two birds with one stone!

    That's what makes it news, plus TC starts next week. We don't b*tch when it's some other team's guy. Let's not b*tch when it's one of ours. At least they didn't mention spygate. :)

    Actually the fact that the pills were from Canada is new information that was reported recently.

    Right just like all of the Marvin Harrison articles:rolleyes: So an article when he was arrested, one now, one when he's arraigned, one when TC starts, one when the next guy gets busted for drugs, one when spygate is rehashed and they need to add to the "problems" the Pats have had, one when the regular season starts, one when he pleads, one when he's sentenced, and one just for fun at some random point in the season.

    Hey, they could get 10 articles out if this thing when it's all said and done!

    Funny; CNNSI and CBS Sportsline have NOTHING about this. It's like ESPN goes out of their way to make the Pats look bad or something. :eek:

    I really wish Chris Berman and Keyshawn would go to another station.

    In fairness, I just read that story in the Globe, so they are running a current story.

    I don't mind the article, the thing that gets me is the stupid "Conversation" thing at the bottom.

    At first it's annoying, I agree. Just remember that those dumb "CHEETRZ!!" and * comments are all any of them have. They have to tarnish the Pats accomplishments with whatever they can get thier hands on, logic be damned.

    honestly, what espn do you guys get in america, the one i get here in england is really fair and unbiased except for pardon the interruption, but that is a show which is just opinions and from what i have seen/heard. But maybe i do not read in between the lines

    The point in this new revelation is that the pills came from Canada.

    This casts some doubt on Kaczur's statement that a U.S. acquaintance

    supplied the drugs. Kaczur's home is Ontario, Canada.

    This is why Ive been on an ESPN ban since I saw that ass Schlereth screaming about how they used the films in game when two seconds earlier it was said that the tapes were NOT used during games.
    My ban doesnt lift until the first monday night game, and even then the game will be on mute and the sirius broadcast will be on.
    ESPN is terrible

    Does anyone have tickets for the Pats/Denver game? I have the urge to throw rotten tomatoes at the Monday Countdown set.

    Don't blame ESPN, blame the Globe. They're the ones who brought up this new info.

    Come on, FF. That's BS and you know it. You've been giving a "different view" for all of us non-Harvardians all offseason and you haven't been banned.

    For the millionth time, people like Lynch (until he talked his way down) and Pacman Jones and Nick Kaczur broke LAWS. Bill Belichick broke an ambiguous NFL bylaw that others in the league may or may not have also been breaking.

    I'm not excusing anything. I just don't think there's enough news in this story to warrant it being published nationally. Same with Lynch or any other soap opera garbage ESPN drools over. Doesn't mean the story is totally irrelevant, but the obsession with controversy and sensationalism is way out of balance in the sports media (and regular media) world. Watch sportscenter next time it's on and you'll see that nearly half (if not more) of all the stories are scandal/controversy related. Is the sports world really in that much disarray?

    If you'd seen any of my other posts you'd see that I'm pretty fair about other players' indiscretions getting blown out of proportion and overly exploited too. The guy had pain and got addicted to painkillers so he started buying illegally. The fact that he might not play for the Pats because of it is news, I couldn't give a shit about the rest of it nor do I judge him for it. Same with Brett Favre, who somehow nobody judges for it.

    Dude, you're a troll. Quit acting as if you do nothing but show up and dole out cookies. You come to a Patriots board and spend your time trolling and whining when the trolling gets just the sort of response you know is coming.

    As for the "tolerance" nonsense, feel free to go the the Chargers, Jets, Dolphins, Redskins and Colts forums. You'll quickly find out about that "tolerance" load of crap your tossing about.
