    Coach Betard thought people would pay for local coverage but nothing he’s doing is any different than what we hear and read. He goes on the radio and just shits on the best coach and team and I’m suppose to pay for that?

    On Patsfans, back in 2014-15, there used to be a weekly thread where Bedard would go with Felger and Mazz and dispute their negative BS and made up storylines. You have to take the premise with a large chunk of salt because Bedard has never been part of the mysterious Patriots Media Cartel, but Greg would actually argue with the 2 dummies. The threads stopped because he started thinking like and agreeing with the crap on 98.5. It’s a sign of how arrogant Almost-A-Coach is that he thought people would pay for the “insight” they could get for free on the radio. If he actually tried to be different, then he might have had a chance.

    My guess would be that they weren’t going to pay him next year after what WRs got this offseason. Cue the “they got more for cooks than jimmy hottakez”.

    I meant pay him after the 2018 season.

    Bill loading up for one last season before retiring!

    Nothing will be saved. All will be lost. And our new onion-headed sad emoticon is unable to convey the depth of that loss. -10/22/25 (sic) Daily Thread

    Funny, I don’t recall Pete predicting that trade…

    3 picks in the first 6 rounds?

    Now all the fans bitching about Cooks being a bust will bitch about Bill trading him.

    Even if they fired Shank today I’d still work around the Globe’s pay-wall. You can’t forget the fact that they gave that turd a platform for decades.

    Not simply a platform. That’s for the Joan Venocchi and Jeff Jacoby’s of this world. Two iterations of Globe leadership made a conscious decision to elevate and promote Shank. Football, baseball, basketball or hockey team in the playoffs? The big page one story is Dan Shaughnessy — and those two words are in bigger, bolder type than anything on the page that doesn’t say “The Boston Globe.”   Previews of said playoff match-ups? Not complete until Dan is featured in his timeless “[city] has …. / Boston has ” lists of wit and insight. Dan elected to the Hall Down the Hall and then Across the Hall from the Boys in the Hall Hall of Fame? Stop the presses! Westminster Collectibles issue heirloom quality Shaughnessy memorabilia!

    Unshamed. Unedited. Untamed. Unappealing. The Globe made him a star. Now they can sit on the points.

    Boy, as gif it looks even worse:

    I liked Cooks. But yeah, it’s the program: one year on the cheap, get production, trade him before you have to pay him, and get good comp for him.

    What left tackles will be available at 23?

    Too bad Cooks got his bell rung in the Soupey; maybe the Pats would have prevailed.   :-(

    In the mean-and-not-for-everyone (or perhaps anyone) department, I wonder whether cell-phone video of the YouTube shooting has been posted yet on YouTube.   :ohmy:   :dry:

    Negativity sells in this town but no one is going to pay for it. You might subscribe to the Globe but wouldn’t pay extra for Shank.

    No one expects all positive talk or articles but if you moved here from another country you would think B.B. is the dumbest coach ever.

    Traded too much for him, didn’t get enough back for him.

    Uh, they got more back than they traded.

    Ok fanboy.

    Bingo. To the point where the clown goes on national TV as an “expert” on this region’s sports and fans. :wall:
