sources please? Have not heard this anywhere on local media.

I've been listening and watching live coverage on Boston TV station WBZ and have not heard anything like this. If you are going to post something like "breaking news" you should not repeat the mistakes of other media...Sources are required. Otherwise you sound like a troll, or worse.

Remember that the original source of the story was "unnamed sources close to..." and reported by Ron Borges, that well-known plagiarizing friend of Bill...Belichick, that is.

with good reason!

Which makes me wonder if sometime in the next year or two we won't hear about the Players Union making noise about "collusion." They got away with that red herring a few years back. Why not try again?
Posted Monday June 11, 2012, About: Celtics in tear-down mode?
Did anybody READ the article? Garnett's a Free Agent. The Celtics can't trade him, and other teams don't have to trade FOR him. Ditto with Ray Allen.

KG and Pierce are NOT unrestricted FA. It's KG and Ray Allen. Pierce has another couple of years under contract, but says he MAY retire.

Dallass,
It's not spelled rong? It's centre, center, or even senter.

All spelling and grammar errors are intentional. Grammar Nazis' need entertainment
Posted Wednesday January 18, 2012, About: Why Giants fans should fear the forecast
Believe it or not they have Doppler Radar in California and when it shows huge storms out in the Pacific Ocean they're only heading in one direction. Heck, they may miss by a day or two on either end of the forecast but guess what...the game is right in the middle! NY and the East Coast storms are of a different breed. Storms that track up the coast can easily slip out to sea or more inland thus the accuracy of forecasts is much more difficult.
Posted Tuesday December 27, 2011, About: Jets aren't sold on Sanchez
Problem is the Jet's organization is so screwed up that they would probably make a mistake and sign Archie. As for Sanchez, if he had been "brought along" with a conservative "manage the game" style, he might have been good. But loudmouth proclamations lead to risky decisions, which lead to lots of interceptions, which lead to lots of losses.
Posted Tuesday December 27, 2011, About: Jets aren't sold on Sanchez
Yeah, but they're if they do it this year they're a day late and a dollar short. It should have been obvious earlier. Oh well, Rex got to keep his job another year, and Sanchez made a few $mil.
Posted Monday October 17, 2011, About: Vikings on trading block?
Uhh, have you noticed that they seem to keep on winning games? Not so great in playoffs since '07 but at least they get there! I'd love to see a study of how many high draft picks work out for ALL NFL teams, not just the one(s) who are consistent winners. Just think about the numbers. A 53 man roster, the previous salary structure for high picks, 7 or so draft picks every year. There's really not a lot of room for rookies to make the team. The REAL NFL draft resembles the fantasy one because what really matters is not how many #1, 2, 3 picks are on the roster but how many "football players" are on it. As for the Patriots think about guys like Danny Woodhear, and BJGE.

"Pappelbon is gone, they can't bring him back. His confidence has been destroyed in Boston. "

I don't necessarily think "they can't bring him back" means they don't want to. It's Papelbon's time to go for the big FA $$ and he's gonna go for it.
Posted Sunday October 02, 2011, About: Red Sox owner fired Francona
Agreed. With the millions they're on the hook for to guys who may or may not come close to living up to their contracts they wouldn't extend Tito for what, 8-10 million for two years? If they'd done THAT and then cut him loose they'd be on the hook for another 8-10 million. Boo Hool! Now let's see if they have the guts to cut David Ortiz, Tim Wakefield, and/or Jonathan Papelbon loose. They may not have any chance with Papelbon, even Ortiz, but all three of these "iconic" Red Sox players had their fingers all over the collapse.
Posted Saturday December 25, 2010, About: Jets' hopes may hinge on Brunell
exactly! Except it was only one spot. Cincinatti and Colts gagged by 'resting their starters' and handed the last two games to the Jests.
Posted Saturday December 25, 2010, About: Yanks discussing Manny in pinstripes?
Or that he quit before he started in Chitown! White Sox picking up Manny was a brilliant a personnel move as Minnesota and Tennessee taking on Randy Moss!
Posted Saturday December 25, 2010, About: Yanks discussing Manny in pinstripes?
What makes you and others think Manny would come cheap?
Posted Saturday December 25, 2010, About: Yanks discussing Manny in pinstripes?
This is all about the back page on the Daily News. Imagine the "controversy" when the Yankees try to get Manny to shear off his dreadlocks! :-o
Agree that Manny would have a hard time as a left fielder at Yankee Stadium.
Arod only attacks pitchers like he's trying to knock a purse out of their hands. :-O
Posted Thursday December 16, 2010, About: Werth unhappy with Lee's signing?
because...the money Lee got would have been his...and he could have stayed with a team that has a chance to win.
Posted Thursday December 16, 2010, About: Werth unhappy with Lee's signing?
Yet, a couple off weeks ago Marvin Miller died. All kinds of flowery tributes were uttered about the passing of the man who changed baseball by lawyering in the abomination known as Free Agency.
Not that the old system with reserve clause was a good thing but if the "Players' Union" was really a union, there would be some kind of pay scale based on position, years of service and productivity. Players could be free to change teams rather than be locked to the team they start with, but this current system is just plain sick. It's a cartel more than a union. Unfortunately it is so entrenched now that it's hard to imagine it ever being fixed.
