In response to TrueChamp's comment:
Rkarp works for the media, my guess is NY media as he knows a lot about the jets, either that or he covers N.E sports but is a Jets fan. He usually has some info before it hits the news so he has some insid3 ties, but he undoubtedly is a Patriot hater and has consistently taken subtle shots at BB, Kraft, and the Patriot organization.
Ouch. Tell that to my wallet which has been paying for Pats season tickets for over 30 years.
Btw, my criticisms of the pats have not been subtle. I have been very pointed on what I feel they have done a poor job with. Free agency, the Hern situation, Mankins negotiations, relationships with the media. I have also been extremely complimentary regarding player development, creating a family atmosphere for ex players, cleaning up the stadium experience, the coaching "staff" which I feel the staff, albeit a changing group over the years, has been continuously top 3 in the NFL year in and year out.
You see, now the Hern situation is exactly what im talking about. You sided with the minority and seemingly agreed with the Rolling stones article which was condemned by multiple media outlets. We drafted a talented but troubled kid that every nfl team does. Every single nfl team, but he turned out to be the worst kind of human being after 3 relatively quiet and very productive years. The Patriots did nothing wrong here.
You tell me you are a season tix holder for 30 years, and I wil take your word for it, but the jets must be your 2nd favorite team? Dont lie to me bud. I've seen way too many references and statements defending how they have drafted and their personnel, over the last 4 years of discussion with you.
I have no problem with objectivity. I have a problem with "fans" like Babe, and a few others who come on this site to ONLY spew negativity about the team that has won more championships, more playoff games and more regular season games then any other team in the league since Bill Belichick started running things here.
I can't help it. I am a fan of this team, I cheer for this team, and I see a lot of things they not only do right but do better then everyone else. I too get in a tissy when we dont draft the Dez Bryants or go for DT depth in the draft, and that our D Backs have been bad the last 5 years, but it pales in comparison to the teams that have been built here in N.E. Playoffs every year, a SB birth almosy every other.
Enjoy the ride my "objective" friends. Enjoy it while it lasts. You will actually have something to whine about when Bill Belichick hangs up his clipboard.
