Darius Fleming’s Character Was Questioned for One Reason: He Wears a Patriots Uniform

I hear it all the time in various phrases, but it basically comes down to this: “Cheatriots fans are the worst! Always got an imaginary chip on their shoulder.”

But today has only exemplified why the ‘Us versus Them’ mentality has been ingrained in us and why a legion of Patriots fans feel the need to Defend the Wall of Patriots Nation.

Thursday afternoon, Darius Fleming…a man who was recently in the news this past December, when he and Patriots rookie, Brandon King bought Target gift cards and handed them to random holiday shoppers for Christmas…was in the news again today. Continue reading

What are your actions teaching your players? What is the culture within your team? What are you teaching aspiring and future NFL players?

Will you teach them to be great? To be leaders? To work hard? Will you teach them how to take the hit and keep moving forward or will you complain and give excuses… Continue reading

Oh, the Irony: The Patriots vs. the NFL, ESPN and Sports Illustrated

The NFL obviously doesn’t like to lose. Within mere days after Judge Berman’s ruling, all kinds of new lows have emerged from the depths:

  1. A misleading photo of Kraft with two other gentlemen, drinking and laughing is plopped smack under the headline ‘Patriots owner, ‘Deflategate’ judge mingle at a party. The truth? If you go to the New York gossip website Page Six who broke the story, you will see the names of those in the photo: Ron Perelmen, Robert Kraft, and Jack Welsh. No photo of the judge and Kraft exist, for the fact that they were introduced, spoke politely for a couple of minutes, and were never seen together before or since.
  2. On Tuesday…two days before the Patriots home-opening game…ESPN’s Outside the Lines, unleashes a forty page expose mixing facts with dazzling urban legends they have titled ‘Spygate to Deflategate: Inside what split the NFL and Patriots apart
  3. On the same day ESPN slammed the Patriots with a propaganda-esque style campaign fit for a John Steinbeck novel, Sports Illustrated’s article waves its magic football needle to pump more hot air into the heads of the true victims here: the general public.

The irony of all this? In a desperate attempt to smear the Patriots’ name and credibility, the NFL, ESPN, and Sport’s Illustrated, are destroying their own reputations. Continue reading

The Real Story on Judge Berman and Robert Kraft

kraft hamptonsDo you see the picture on the right? They seem to know each other pretty well—smiling and laughing and having a good old time. The men’s names in this picture are Ron Perelman (left), Robert Kraft (center), and Jack Welch (right.)

You can read those names listed under the photo on the gossip website who broke the story, Page Six, here.

It wouldn’t be uncommon to assume this was a photo of Kraft with Judge Berman. The display along with the headline is very misleading, but what else can you expect from a gossip-tabloid style website?

Okay, so you accept that there is no photo of Kraft and Berman “mingling”, but you want to know why a NY federal judge who has just overturned Tom Brady’s case was seen “mingling” with the Patriots’ owner at a party.

Here’s the facts: Continue reading

Answering Bart Hubbuch’s Five Questions to Tom Brady

Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post had five questions for Tom Brady in his Sept. 4th article, ‘Fess up, Tom: 5 damning Delflategate questions Brady must answer’.

Just as Mr. Hubbuch refused to call in to WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan show because of this reason…

Hubbuch D and C

…it’s safe to say that Tom Brady probably has better things to do with his time than to answer Mr. Hubbuch’s supposedly five “damning” questions that could easily be answered by anyone who has followed the case.

Since Mr. Hubbuch expressed he is above going on radio shows that don’t get the ratings or clicks worthy of his presence, it would be a darn shame for Mr. Hubbuch to sit in the dark any longer with these mysterious questions: Continue reading

inˈteɡrədē/
noun
1. the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.

2. a trigger word used by the NFL to justify a set up and a mass PR scandal which would eventually lead to an unprecedented punishment handed down by the NFL in order to gain complete power and authority by setting a legal precedent for players and/or teams facing punishment in the future.

There’s an old saying that aptly applies to those who want to see “justice” finally come down on the “Cheatriots”:

Be careful what you wish for. Continue reading

How Mike Kensil, the Mastermind Behind Deflategate, Framed the Patriots

It’s one thing to set up a sting to catch someone in the act of a crime, but it’s a whole different ball game when an official plants evidence in order to justify an investigation. It doesn’t matter if the official believes the suspect is guilty, planting evidence is a crime. In fact in the real world, it’s a felony.

After reading the Wells report, most took it at face value that it was the Colts’ interception that sparked a half time inspection of the Patriots footballs. This isn’t the case. It isn’t far fetched to suspect that Mike Kensil knew he was going to inspect the Patriots footballs before the AFC Championship game started. He could accomplish this feat by planting evidence of an illegal football known as the K-ball, or kicking ball.

This would be the justification needed to inspect all the footballs at half time. Continue reading
