10:59 AM ET 09.15 | New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick had zero interest in discussing his recent contract extension. Signed in 2007 to a deal set to expire after the 2013 season, Belichick has signed a new contract extension to keep him with the Patriots for a long time, according to NFL Network. Why doesn't Belichick want to talk about it? Well, one, he considers it none of reporters' business. Two, he abhors attention on himself. Three, it avoids the possible distraction if Belichick is ever in a contract year or starts losing. Belichick's answer: "I don't talk about my personal contract sitution, sorry."

I hope the extension included a hat.

His contract was to have ended after this season. Now that I've read this I can breathe easier. However, I picture Belichick and Brady retiring at the same time.

I wish everybody did that. Listening to players hold out for another million is getting tired.

Another thing. Don't take a picture of BB when his hair is wet.

You also shouldn't feed him after midnight.

No one thinks BB is leaving for anything other than retirement.

My FF team is having a good battle vs MF's.
