    Matt seems like a good guy and he landed a prestigious job. Let's hope for the best just as I hope to hit the lottery jackpot.

    I still have no idea what Michael Lombardi brings to the table. He takes plenty off it.

    He should be sending Belichick a cut from the multiple outlets that pay him, since working with the Pats seems to be his primary and secondary calling card.

    Wonder if Belichick knows what a clown the guy is, or if he finds him useful when trying to push the whole Patriots Way BS narrative. Suppose it could be both.

    holy shit...

    I mean, I don't claim to know Jonah very well, but this seems wildly out of character. Just goes to show you don't really know what goes on behind closed doors. Awful for his wife and child.

    As part of his bail conditions he cannot be within 250 metres of his wife or child, cannot carry weapons, and was given ten days to get his possessions out of his home.

    Court documents state the alleged attacks against Keri's wife took place in July 2018, May 2019, and July 2019.​

    I'm stunned by this. Hope his wife and child are okay.

    To a degree that's true.

    But there should be a way to package saving "taxpayers millions of dollars" into something people want to read.

    Dirtybird, are you a suit? Just curious. If not forgive me. It's just that his/her post was totally on the spot. You say there should be a way to package that story into something people want to read?? Really? In this day and age of Millennials not giving a bleep about reading news articles and the following generation whatever it's called? They are going to read that story?? Yeah right. There's no way to package that saving taxpayers money story into something people want to read over some clickbait thing about "top ten reasons bikinis are skimpier this summer."

    Agreed, but “numbers stories” (at least at our place) usually do horribly re: engagement and traffic.
