    Zookeepers scoffing at the idea that John Henry might slant to anti-Patriots coverage?

    That’s not even a conspiracy theory.

    Didn’t Lucchino flat-out admit that they felt the Pats were their competition?

    All you need to know about Werner and the Sox is during Friday nights game they had Remy and Obrien on with Jack and Brick during one of the periods.

    Someone may forget about their beloved Red Sox 3 weeks into the season during a Bruins playoff run.

    Yeah, I can remember the Globe doing a mocking fold-in for the Red Sox and their fans several times :rollseyes:

     

    On the Brady/charity story, anyone who says/tweets/posts that “I’d want to know if my donation goes to Brady’s kid’s school” deserves to be strangled for 15 seconds or so. Someone pointed out last night that there’s an excellent chance that the people complaining about this never donated anything to Best Buddies, but they’re quick to make it sound like the money is going directly to Brady’s kids.

    What is it, 7% of the donation is going to other charities? So, some portion of 7 cents on the dollar is going to a school, to benefit the entire school, not just the Brady children. Should the UN convene a crimes against humanity tribunal about this?

    And no charity, or at least none that I have seen, advertise the breakdown of where every dollar is going while they are promoting the charity. The information is obtainable but you are not going to see or hear it on a 30 second commercial. I see Fatty is all over the “bad optics” take. How is it bad optics if its public information? Please pull out the same magnifying glass to all there other charities and let me know how those optics are. It’s not like TB is Stern’s wife using a cat wrangling charity as employment.

    Minihane is on that, too.

    “Bad look”. By who?

    If it’s not illegal, unethical, or uncommon, who cares?

    But it wasn’t a bad look to have the inventors of METCO GORILLA visiting minority kids who are a sick.

    Glad that’s cleared up.

    The Globe SPINS it as a “bad look.”

    It’s not a “bad look” until the Globe invents it. Then the parrots fall into line.

    Liquor store 1/2 between PC and Chad Brown projects (30s of Natty/40s of OE are their business) randomly has 6 or 7 six packs of Celebration still in the cooler :blink: I bought one the other night, still…good-ish :lol:

    One gripe I do have with Brady.

    “Change the World” is almost as generic as “The Human Fund”. :lol:

    Apparently Pedroia isn’t much for omerta but maybe Barnes is a huge cunt and we just don’t know about it.

    While Fatty did call the Brady Best Buddies thing “bad optics” (everything’s about how something looks with this asshole), he did generally take the correct tack, which is that Best Buddies was enriched multiple times over because of Brady’s involvement, and he pocketed not one cent from their arrangement.

    Still, Fatty being Fatty, he misses the opportunity to draw a comparison when he later mentions how his podcast with Brady was an outlier in terms of public interest:

    d. Podcasting might be the way of the future. I love it. I love having extended conversations with smart people in and around football, and I believe this is the kind of content people who love the game are going to grow to love more and more. So far, a very large number of you have downloaded the Tom Brady podcast I did in February. That’s probably an outlier, because 76 minutes of thoughtful and real Tom Brady is going to attract a crowd.

    The conclusion’s an easy one to draw: Brady’s a commodity and his involvement in anything brings clicks, eyeballs, readership and charitable donations. Moreover, should he choose not to be active in things he previously has done freely, it would be an enormous hit to those previously basking in the glow of his involvement.

    He’s too nice a guy to do such a thing, but it does make you wonder sometimes why these guys even bother. There’s always some asshole out there looking to find fault with whatever you do.

    It’s worse than that, because being an asshole who finds fault is what gets rewarded.  Piece of shit industry.

    I see Fatty is all over the “bad optics” take.

    That’s quadruple caramel latte rich coming from PK. What are the optics of him hitting up his readers for money for Dr. Z? Did he ever reveal what happened to the proceeds from last summer’s fundraising efforts? I get most of my PK information from this board, but I don’t recall ever seeing anything about him delivering a check to Mrs. Dr. Z.
