    I read a few of those. It looks like a three-day slog of a blog entry. But that piece about Dillon being a piece of shit and going to jail one day? And the sex tape. And calling out Bruschi. Jesus.

    OK, it wasn't as long as i thought. The comments were longer. Some comments are gold.

    Wouldn't it be interesting if someone had secretly taped Belichick?

    Piece is from what is (IMO) one of the more bizarre betting-advice sites, going.

    Interesting, and no doubt a reflection of the author's true feelings . . . but what's he going to do for an encore?

    Yeah. Seems like he didn't exactly leave on his own?

    The blog post itself seemed like it was written by a 17-year-old. It was stupid and immature and devoid of journalism.

    And if you are going to give me some insight into the Patriots based on all your great super-secret access, how about telling me something specific, rather than your opinion about what a dick or a nice guy that people are or what sex-tape rumors you heard.

    I don't believe the part about Dillon, among other things. From what I've read, Dillon was eternally grateful for becoming a Patriot and getting to leave the mess in Cincy.

  9. To paraphrase a quote from an ESPN media relations executive on Keith Olbermann's departure: "He didn't burn bridges, he napalmed them ..."
  10. So, I figured, what the hell? This gambling site thing is going to last forever, and I'll never need or want to go back into actual sports journalism or work in the NFL, so why not?

    (I would like the backstory on "the patsfans ordeal" if anyone knows it.)

    Some blogs are like that, I hear.
