In Response to Re: National Media Back on Pat's Jocks
[QUOTE]@BBReigns: You are hysterical!!!! Were you being serious? Please tell me that was not a real take! " Exactly. No con$piracy. It's called money." Then on lines 18-22 of your rant: "And we know this really started back in 2003 with Tom Jackson on ESPN. Since then, BB has given nothing to ESPN. And since then, ESPN has tried every which way to smear BB and the Pats. Obviously, 2007 and Spygate was the perfect vehicle to smear and also make tons of money off the NE Patriots." Ummmmmm..... Hey Professor! You just concocted a full-blown conspiracy!!! Ladies and gentleman, this is why I make fun of most of you. You do not read yourselves and how idiotic these statements are. I love the Patriots but are you kidding me???!!! Do you think your neighbor is spying on you too? Your house is bugged with FBI devices? Men in Black suits walk around making sure everything is ok? ESPN does blow. They are about interjecting themselves into the storylines. Where's that hot take on Tampa Bay or Kansas City? However, you too busy moaning about power rankings and lack of kissing up to the local teams the way you think it should be about! Try this concept out: Its a national program. They don't care about your team like you do! They want the stories that generate eyeballs to the television. That means controversial stars, not Matinee Idols. Dallas, Minnesota, NY Jets, Brett Favre, Randy Moss, Donovan McNabb, Micheal Vick, illegal hits, the next Monday Night Game. All more relevant than kissing BB's 6-1 butt. If you want local coverage, go bug NESN, CSNNE, 4,5, and 7. Otherwise, SHUT THE BLEEP UP!! damm..

No offense, but you are flat out dumb.
What you said in your last paragraph is EXACTLY what I said. They do whatever is needed to drive ratings.
You are absolutely clueless.
I lived in the Midwest from 2004-2009, and I can tell you right now, there was a bubbling jealousy brewing after NE won SB 39.
That was BEFORE Spygate.
Most fans couldn't say anything without looking stupid or jealous, so they had to admit how great those teams were.
But many already HATED ESPN beacause of an east coast bias. There is an inferiority element that trickles out fo the Midwest, a little in the South and it absolutley exisst on the west coast.
This is a fact by simply living outside of the New England area, working with other sports fans and becoming friends with people who are diehards of other teams.
Most Midwest sports fans, and I am sure west coast and other regions, are incensed over NE's success and continued succcess. They seem them as the Yankees.
It's not just NY fans or other AFC rival cities.
You call me an idiot, and I can guarantee you...GURANTEE you, between me knowing people who work directly in that business, knowing how they produce shows, the angles they expect their talking heads to take, etc, and working with people throughout this country and actually living in different regions, it does ESPN absolutley NO GOOD to kiss NE's butt. Zero benefit.
The Pats became the Yankees. Bill Belichick is Darth Vader. That's the angle. He cheats, he has affairs, he's cheap and evil and ran over your grandmother.
Terrible correlation because there is no cap in baseball, but from a revenue standpoint, the NE will never get ratings on a national after they used Spygate to feed the ratings.
You're flat out daft and need to know how the world works, son.
You're welcome, professor.
You pretending Tom Jackson did not have some weird axe to grind, just like Jamie Dukes does not on NFL Network is flat out hilarious.
Just who is dumb here? Hmmm.
You think BB doesn't grant ESPN any access, but he does NFL Network, just by coincidence?
Connect the dots, kid.
Anyone seen Peter King with the same access to Foxborough compared to what he had pre 2007???
Too complex, hey there, little guy?
Do you think Michael Felger acts like a complete tool by accident?
My god, kid. Look at your first sentence back to me. I ask you: ARE YOU SERIOUS?
What are you, 12? Let us know when you go off and pay bills and get a paycheck so you know what this world is about.
Gee, why did Logie Mankin$ just hold out? I don't get it.
Edit: Ahhh, it makse sense now. YOU are Leon. Priceless.
I have Leon, a thing with multiple board handles for a living, with multiple personalities, telling me I am dumb.
You can't make this stuff up, folks.
This is probably Butch from the Cape's kid. If the Globe was smart, they'd trce your IP, send in the local police and bring you in for questioning just as a pre-emptive measure.
Youre like a '00s version of Dahmer, Leon. Absolutely diseased.
