    Uh, is this THE job that was much discussed on another board?
     
  3. what happened to John Tomase? He was so good ::)

    Yes, it is. Rob Bradford, the Red Sox reporter, is leaving the Herald to write for the new WEEI.com. Tomase will presumably move from the Pats to Red Sox (he covered the latter for six years before going to the Herald). And a new Pats writer enters the fray. All sides leave happy.
     
  5. you will have a lot of damage control here, because of the tomase caper. but you will work with good people, and if you're aggressive, you'll enjoy competing against the globe, projo, gatehouse papers, etc. bradford is joining one of the herald's former pats beat writers, mike felger, at eei.

    (related to the beat, i hear hartford is dropping pats coverage and going ap....one less competitor for ya.)

    I'm just stunned there is a job at a big paper that might actually be filled by an outsider.

    Mizzou, I will be stunned if the person hired doesn't come from a New England, and 95 percent chance Boston-area, paper.
     
  8. if albert breer hadn't taken the sporting news gig, i think his name would be all over this one.

    You're probably right, but it's just good to see an actual real job posting at a good paper.

    The pickins are slimmer than usual, though, Michael -- mainly because fewer reporters have been covering the Pats full-time at the suburban papers. But maybe you've got someone specific in mind who you think's in line for it ...

    This job would be sweet, even though you'd have to powder Belichick's balls to stay on his good side. ;)
