    Just saw this on Jerry Thornton's feed. He refers to Borges to the Patriots as Gargamel to the Smurfs. Too funny.

    In real terms at the paper, Borges is his column. This really just means that they've now got time to go over his work looking for other problems, and time to decide whether or not he's going to get fired. At the least, he's probably written his last item on the Patriots.

    This whole fiasco actually provides an interesting insight into the journalism industry and how some members thereof practice their trade.

    Just imagine how many other stories have come about from the same type of “sources” - in either the sports world or the real world.

    I know it was proven to be totally false, but when there’s smoke there’s fire, right?

    For the Herald, mayhaps.

    After all, Tom-ass-e is posting crap about the Pats for WEEI.

    With what?

    Brady wanting more cash? Maybe, but not $75m.

    Skipping OTAs? Ridiculous. Even during the tough negotiations there has never been a wisper of Tom holding out

    Even if Borges keeps his job, I smile at the thought of him submitting an article, telling his editor he can't reveal his source, only to hear the editor quip, "It isn't Nick from Boston, right?" Every single time.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Literally almost every negative story pumped about the pats in the last 10 years has been a lie. Save for hernandez morphing into tony montana. That was true.

    Tony Montana was at least ethical.

    Punchy will be out at some well known watering hole in Boston drowning his sorrows. He'll get nasty drunk and pick a fight with some gorilla who proceeds to smash his skull in like a rotten cantaloupe. Lord Hear Our Prayer.

    I Agree. I’ve only called in to WEEI twice and both times it was to ask Tomase to explain his story about Matt Walsh. This past Saturday I asked him if he was going to make up another lie Super Bowl morning. I think too many people forget what Tomase did in 2007.

    Yep. And Tomase can be heard complaining about how STUPID PATRIOTS FANS INSULT HIM AND WONT LET GO.

    Got to say, Borges used to write fascinating boxing columns back in the day. He was both connected and passionate, and he always stood up for the athletes vs. the promoters in an absolute meat grinder of a sport. Now he’s just a bloated caricature, but it would be wrong to omit that he used to bring the goods.

    Tomase should be better than he is too, he has talent and intelligence, but that stench of poor ethics and weak character permeate all his contributions.

    Actually, if you're looking for him, he lives in Littleton. He was pumping gas at a station I pulled into a year or two ago.

    Well, sure. The Herald can't control what another employer does, so the Herald could only fall back on an "us or them" demand.

    Perhaps you're right, but I've neither seen nor heard any evidence that such is the case. He's shown himself to be a fool on every subject I've had the displeasure of seeing, or hearing, him address.
