    There is no more clearer reason in what the media is doing to Andy Reid right now.

    Although Reid is as tight-lipped as BB when it comes to his team, he doesn't have BB's edge and in most circles known as a very nice man.

    His personal family issues are being dissected and smeared all over Gods creation right now.

    ....and these *******s dare question other people's character or class.:mad:

    I understand why Belichick treats the press the way he does.

    They will ruin anyone to get what they are after.

    Gone are the days of a reporter reporting on the details of the actual story.

    Reporters these days are more like fiction writers.

    I agree 100%. There are even people calling for his suspension. Suspension, WHAT????? No one is perfect, there are black sheep in every family, and you should never judge unless you walk in someone's shoes.

    Lately, the media is acting like the rest of the world. Got their mouth going before they understand the situation or know the facts.

    Leave Reid alone already, he has enough problems.

    That's one of my favorite things about Belichick-the complete and unabashed disdain with which he holds the media. Frankly, I think it's fantastic and more should do it. He's respectful to those who are respectful to him, such as Mike Reiss. And what reason does he have to be kind to the Boston Media anyway?

    This what I cannot stand. By all accounts Mr. Reid has done everything he can to help his son's...rehab ect. The only thing he could do better? Probably spend more time with them...but they are adults.

    Here is where my big problem comes in. Dungy. Saint Dungy not only gets a pass on his family problems he gets praised for his strength compared to Andy? I am not slamming Dungy at all this is all the press IMO. The only apparent thing I could "blame" Dungy for is the same as Reid..not enough time with their kids...MAYBE. I am sure they have more time with at least thier mother than many "upstanding" kids. Reids kids are dopers...Dungy's kid had racist and hate messages all over his myspace page. Niether kids are exactly cream of th crop here but because Dungy gives to the media and Reid doesn't it is crucifixion time for Reid just like BB.

    No one writes much of BB's charity work do they which seems to be a much larger body of work than Dungy's but he is the "saint"? Again this isn't a slam at Dungy I am only talking about the crp the media writes.

    Reid may not be as great as BB as a coach but he is my 2nd favorite coach. his teams always are in the hunt and keeps his team competitive through the tough philly media. He is always cooperative to the media and they repay him passing judgements about what he should do.

    How about the fact that some of the Eagles players are so F-ing stupid that they're actually answering the "if drugs had been found in the home of a PLAYER, would there by a bigger outcry/suspension?" question. They are completely, albeit perhaps inadvertantly, throwing their HC under the bus with that.

    No way, really? I find this a little hard to believe. But I guess anything is possible in the City of Brotherly Love.

    I feel very bad for Andy Reid. I can't believe people are calling for his suspension.

    It's gone too far. I mean, the media in general. I wish there was some way to scale the whole thing back but with 24 hour news and sports shows and the internet, any idiot can air out an opinion under the guise of being an "expert".

    And I do notice a complete and total double standard when it comes to Reid's problems with his children and Tony Dungy. Actually, when it comes to ANYONE and Tony Dungy. I'm not saying anything against Dungy's tragedy because it was awful, but it seems clear both Reid AND Dungy had problems with kids. Andy Reid should get the same courtesy that was shown to Tony Dungy. In other words, BUTT OUT MEDIA.

    As far as I can tell, Reid provided his kids with 3 squares and a warm place to sh*t every day and that puts him ahead of 90 percent of what the world's fathers can provide for their children. So he wasn't around? So what? That's why his kid has decided to become a junkie? Please I know so many people (including myself) who have come from so much worse circumstances and managed to avoid embarrassing their families like Reids kids. It ain't his fault people. He just got unlucky. Try it yourself at home kids. Have a few rug rats and see how *they* turn out.

    You mean giving grown men (22 and 24 years old) free reign over a household so them and the rest of their junkie friends can get high and throw parties whenever they want because daddy is busy drawing up defensive schemes? The "only" thing he could do is spend more time with them? Gee, is that all?

    I hope to God you don't have children.

    From Profootballtalk.com's Rumor Mill

    " WILL EAGLES BE INSPIRED TO WIN?

    UPDATE: Wow. I just saw a report from ESPN's Sal Paolantonio, during which two players (running back Correll Buckhalter and cornerback Sheldon Brown) openly bemoaned the fact that players would be suspended if their houses were full of drugs. So while the players might have previously felt bad for their coach, the latest revelations might have been enough to prompt them to begin to emotionally disconnect from the boss. Also, Paolantonio wrapped his report by saying that Reid told his assistants, "No matter what, I'm staying on the job for the rest of the season." In our view, Paolantonio's implicit message to the audience was that, after the season, all bets are off."

    Incredible isn't it. Talk about no support from your players.
