    This just in – Volin is still a douchebag.    Most of the comments confirm that’s the opinion of people other than myself.

    h/t Singapore Sox Fan:

    Now removed from the copy (link):

    When a reporter asked if it was like switching from the Cowboys to the Indians, Mitchell responded: “Someone has to get scalped.”

    I’d love to know which Pittsburgh reporter asked this (please be Dunlap, please be Dunlap).

    YOU’RE still focused on the Steelers, you should be worried that the Patriots will commit a turnover Sunday and the Jets will ask for that ball to be weighed!

    So Gronk needs 11 catches to reach 80…which means he has, uh, *cue Gronk dropping every pass in increasingly Inspector Clousseau-esque fashion*

    Miguel brings up Wilfork in 2014:

    Somebody else cites a time the Pats restructured Vollmer to make a bonus more likely. And didn’t they change structure with Brady so the suspension didn’t cost him money?

    He has had as many as 11 catches exactly once in his career. He has had 116 yards or more twelve times (10.8% of games played). But yeah, if he fails to reach those levels Sunday, it’s Belichick being shady.

    Let’s say they’re up three scores in the fourth, and Gronk’s just shy in one of the criteria. These assholes will either bitch about stingy Belichick denying Gronk his bonus or foolish Belichick playing with fire by playing fragile Gronk when the game’s already decided.

    Sooooooo

    EEI decided that the only way to elevate Tomase is to portray him as fearless in going head to head with John Dennis.

    Keep the controversy going by making the rest of the programming focus on their slap-fight. Bradford and Trenni going deep on Day #2.

    Pats game? Bruins? Celtics’ streakiness? Off the table. What people want to do is hang on “hold” for an hour to weigh in their long-time listener opinions. This makes those idiotic “get people involved” consultant-driven viewer opinion surveys on local sports look thoughtful. (Should Brady throw to Gronk more often? Let us know at pollpoop.cbs4 ).

    Worst of all, whenever anyone has the temerity to mention Print The Rumour Tomase’s ‘spygate’ behavior, the retort is “he’s the man with the guts to stand up to John Dennis!”

    Oh, if you switch, 98.5 has Shank on analyzing the Pats.

    That’s because, out of loyalty to Kraft, Gronk deliberately body-slammed that Buffalo DB a few weeks ago to get suspended for a game and reduce his chances of getting that incentive payment.

    BTW, Shank just observed that last year’s Pats stats were “artificially inflated” because of “the division.” The Tomato Can theory never gets old.

    This is well-worn territory, but…*

    Buffalo 8-7
    Miami 6-9
    New York 5-10
    Total wins: 19

    Baltimore 9-6
    Cincinnati 6-9
    Cleveland 0-15
    Total wins: 15

    Tennessee 8-7
    Houston 4-11
    Indianapolis 3-12
    Total wins: 15

    Los Angeles 8-7
    Oakland 6-9
    Denver 5-10
    Total wins: 19

    It’s too much to ask Shank to look at the standing, but, excluding the division leader the AFC East is tied for most wins with the AFC West. The Patriots also played the AFCW and went 3-1 against them. KC, who leads that division, is 9-7 compared to the Patriots at 12-3. An objective observer might conclude that the Patriots are really good, but why put in some effort when you can rely on old, inaccurate cliche?

    *I was 90% done with this post when I realized Shank was talking about last year, but whatever. In 2016, Miami, Buffalo and NY combined for 22 wins, with Miami being a wildcard playoff team. The AFCW teams were better with 26 wins and Oakland earning a wildcard with 12 wins. So, the “lucky” Patriots had the benefit of playing in the second best division in the AFC. If they had to play the real teams in the AFC North or South, I’m sure they wouldn’t have won 14 games and the Super Bowl :rollseyes:

    Watching the game last night, it occurred to be that Valentine might honestly be the worst @!&%ing Sox manager I’ve ever seen. Worse than Hobson, worse than Kerrigan. I was too young to see Zimmer at work, so post-Houk he’s by far the worst. I mean, there’s no excusing this shiit. The Sox finally had their winning streak, were played well and hitting the shit out of the ball, then he blows a game by leaving Bard out there exhausted, makes his idiotic comments about Youkilis that throws the whole clubhouse into turmoil, and then watches as Youk gets the Golden Sombrero while his team loses by 15. No, he can’t pitch and Lester’s shitty start meant the game was lost by the 4th, but he has the remarkable ability to destroy any good momentum the team has because of the inability to keep his @!&%ing mouth shut for 30 seconds.

    He won’t last through the All Star Break, I hope. Of course that’s assuming the ownership gives a damn about winning, which going by the process he was hired they do not. Everyone’s talking about the Sox again, baby! Time to sell some bricks!

    I can’t wait for Dale Sveum to swoop in and fix this team. This team has mediocre pitching. That’s why they are mediocre. Not because of Bobby’s nonsense. Much like Billy Martin with the yanks in the 80s. I preface all of this by saying that i’m not a huge Valentine fan but no manager is going to make this staff into anything more than it is.

    If Sveum were here I’d at least be confident he would have been hired for his baseball acumen and not his attention-getting abilities.
    Not asking Bobby to create miracles. I’m asking for a manager who won’t cause stupid and unnecessary controversy which results in a nice little win streak going completely down the shitter because the clubhouse is aghast that he trashed a player so abruptly and in public.
    He’s @!&%ing sociopathic. It takes a remarkable level of brain damage to say the one player who’s not emotionally committed is….Youkilis? The guy who could teach a 700-level course in helmet throwing?

    Oh God! Shamgod, on 18 Apr 2012 – 08:58 AM, said:
    everything you say i agree with but i’m a pragmatist. Are they a winning team regardless of who the manager is this year? My answer is no. The team won for so many years with good pitching. They have mediocre pitching now. Lester isn’t an ace and Youk is cooked regardless of the Valentine head games.

    Sports radio this a.m. (don’t know if it was local or ESPN), I heard the host talking about Gronk’s bonuses, and that he “heard” Belichick might try to limit his playing time to keep him from the $2M. I’m thinking what asshole media guy is passing this off as fact? Tucker:

    You know what would be great for Tucker’s argument? Some examples. I know it’s twitter and space is limited, but follow that up with some tweets of situations where “shady stuff” happened with incentives. Or tweet out an image of a paragraph with these examples. Otherwise, he just opens the door for morons to speculate.

    Probably the only other thing I know about Tucker is his claim that he saw players on IR practicing when he was with the Patriots. He signed with New England on 12/13/05 and then was traded to Cleveland in August of 2006. If the 2005 Patriots wikipedia page is accurate, the team started the season with LB Ryan Claridge, WR Michael McGrew and WR Cedric James on IR. 9 other players went on IR over the course of the season, including Matt Light, Rodney Harrison, Randal Gay, Ty Poole and Chad Scott. My theory is that Tucker saw Claridge, McGrew or James practicing. It doesn’t make sense that Harrison or Light would get injured in September, placed on IR (which meant they could not return) and then were healthy enough to practice by December. Also, the team knew what they had with their veteran players. They weren’t going to learn anything new by having Koppen participate in practice on the scout team. It would make sense if it was young players who had been injured in training camp, but by the end of the season were healthy enough to get on the field. I can see having Claridge practice to see what he could do an if he could contribute next season. That’s still a rules violation, but it’s in the realm of having your socks too high or too low. The player on IR can’t come back and play, so how is it helping?

    To me, it comes across as petty for Tucker to think that infraction was worth bringing up in 2007 or 2008 when the “cheating” bandwagon was getting rolling. Tucker spent a month playing and practicing with the 2005 Patriots. He played for 3 other teams over his career, but I can’t recall him ever claiming to have see anything shady with them.

    “Having dirt on the Patriots” is a decent chip to have for an ex-player trying to find his niche in the media. He was there for a cup of coffee, but that hasn’t stopped him from framing himself as somebody who knows the inner workings of the Patriots.

    “Upton Bell did not grow up like you and me. Your father was not the NFL commissioner who created the draft model now followed by all professional sports. Your mother was not a Broadway star. His parents were each of those things. You were not a thirty-three-year-old general manager of a pro football team, or a radio and TV host. I can say with certainty you have not met the people he’s met or had the experiences he’s had. And, no offense, I doubt you are as funny or insightful as Upton Bell is on a variety of topics. This is an extraordinary life story of a unique individual. The epilogue alone is worth the price of the book.”—Bob Ryan, Boston Globe sportswriter, author, frequent ESPN panelist, and recipient of the Curt Gowdy Media Award from the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame (Bob Ryan 2017-06-13)
    “It didn’t start with Joe Namath or Joe Montana or Tom Brady leading an impossible comeback in Super Bowl LI in Houston. This is the history of professional football in America. If you ever played football, played fantasy football, or just tossed a few bucks in an office pool, this is the book for you. Upton Bell lived it and Ron Borges covered it.

    Sports radio this a.m. (don’t know if it was local or ESPN), I heard the host talking about Gronk’s bonuses, and that he “heard” Belichick might try to limit his playing time to keep him from the $2M. I’m thinking what asshole media guy is passing this off as fact?

    Tucker:


    I swear there was a time when he wasn’t a shitbird in the media but maybe I am misremembering. Such a shitty comment that he knows he (or anyone else) can get away with and nobody except a few Patriots fans are gonna say anything. It’s like he has gotten progressively worse each year.

    Guessing Schilling’s wages get garnished to all the people he owes money to.  Like Cro or Travis Henry’s game checks that would go to 9 different women.

    I’m guessing folks are too busy shooting themselves after listening to Dino, Big Schill and Little Jerry to post on the board.

    I thought there was a time he was OK too. But he takes these blindside potshots all the time now. No supporting info. Just “I know! I was there!” His brethren lap it up because it supports their prevailing narrative. Belichick will do anything, won’t he?

    Tucker obviously has an axe to grind since he was here for a cup of coffee.

    Fuck him

    That thing on his head..the Colts fake punt formation was a more convincing deception.

    One less landing spot for Caserio. And, I would think, for Josh.

    Celtics schedule seems to be really getting to them, at least the back half should be easier.

    Hard to tell. I’ve mostly dealt with other alkies, servers and my one friend out here who couldn’t give 2 shits about sports that aren’t ultra marathons.
