11:27 AM ET 11.11 | New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was none to pleased with head coach Bill Belichick in the wake of "Spygate," Mr. Hoodie's effort to secretly record opponents' practice sessions in the hopes of getting a competitive edge. Kraft called his employee a "schmuck" in the wake of the scandal. Kraft's words to Belichick are recollected in a new book called "Coaching Confidential: Inside the Fraternity of NFL Coaches" by Gary Myers of the New York Daily News. Kraft also told Myers that he confronted Belichick about the taping, and the Boston Globe recounts the incident in a preview of the book, which will be released on Tuesday.

Spygate or not, he's still a good coach. Still hasn't figured out how to beat the Giants yet, however.

I'f Myers didn't try to create controversy, nobody would read the stinking book.

Now we know what happened to the replacement NFL refs when the 'regular' refs came back to work. They went to the WWE. I've never seen such disgraceful acts by those that wear the 'black and white striped' shirts. They should all be canned and be replace by NCAA refs.

Mr Kraft is A pretty bright guy, he looks at BB as a son, the comment by him means nothing!!!
