capable of carrying water for or holding a candle to venerable Bill.
The man is incredibly principled. So is the owner. Normally, I am all for a man (or woman) getting everything they can in life. But when it comes to athletics, something has gone terribly wrong since the days of Flood and Messersmith....now here come the Patriots, who tell the world we will pay you a decent wage, but if it gets ridiculous, bye bye, we will win without you. We will win because we will fill our rosters with winners, who in the words of the Hoodie, only have to 'do their jobs' to come out out on top......this is a team who would not bend to: Lawyer Milloy, Ty Law, Assante Samuel, Deion Branch (hes back!) Richard Seymour, Willie McGinest, Adam Viniteri,Randy Moss, the guard Mankins? and the disgruntled LB, cant remember his name, from last year. Christ they even traded Mike Vrable, a man who had never dropped a touchdown pass! It is so refreshing to find that there is a franchise somewhere that has the fortitude to find players who will put winning before the self! Go Pats!
