A few years ago, doing a Bill Belichick profile for Sports Illustrated, I saw Belichick’s football library. At the time, the library was in Belichick’s Massachusetts home; now it’s housed in the library at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, where Belichick grew up. One of the books, Sun Tsu’s “The Art of War,” seemed a curious inclusion. But Belichick was big on military metaphors. In this book, Sun Tsu wrote, “Every battle is won or lost before it’s ever fought.”

Those are the words I thought of watching Reich run the decisive play back and forth Saturday morning.

Thin-skinned citizens or tone-deaf cops?

Maybe she should be known as "Ho" Hicks?

https://www.yahoo.com/news/inside-hope-hicks-apos-troubled-184347178.html?.tsrc=jtc_news_index

BTW, it's important that Porter be investigated for possible criminal behavior as he never was fully cleared by the FBI to serve in the WH and should not have had clearance by the apparently enabler, Chief of Staff, to look at any top secret files that were coming through there while he was there.

If there was ever anyone who fit the profile of a potential blackmail target, which of course compromises the security of the country, it's Porter.

And now, we might need to look much more carefully at Ho Hicks, too.

She’s a “Ho” because she dates co workers?

You’re really a prince.


Nothing like missing the larger point. But then, that IS your specialty, Knicks. Dating MARRIED coworkers, dimwit.

It is widely reported she was dating Porter who is twice divorced.

Now, if you want to make case that Lewandowski (who is married to a 9/11 widow) dropped the dime on Porter because he was jealous Porter and Hicks were squeaking the sheets then you might have a point about the security clearances. It is rumored Lewandowski and Hicks had an affair during the campaign.

However, that still doesn’t justify you calling a woman a whore. Just proves you’re a misogynist with terrible double standards.




Ho Hicks. It sticks.

IF you knew what I know, instead of what you think you know, you'd get it.

But, you don't.

Again.

WEEI...Broadcasting bigotry called out: https://www.bostonglobe.com/business/2018/02/11/weei-hosts-peddle-cheap-and-vile-shock-time-force-change/iKR210JTjoU7tGSTq4PEWL/story.html?p1=Article_Trending_Most_Viewed

She has a point. The Sox and the Pats should speak up.

Someone "reflective" in New England calls out their whiny fans:

...give Tom Brady’s wife some credit and leeway. She was comforting distraught children — not distraught adults who also want to believe the Eagles won because Bill Belichick let them. That narrative lets the hometown crowd gnash its teeth over Malcolm Butler’s benching rather than Brady’s fumble. The Eagles exploited the defensive match-up. But Nick Foles, a backup quarterback, played the game of his life and hung in to beat the greatest quarterback of all time. Of course, Brady played a great game too. But as he also acknowledged during his post-game press conference, “They made one good play at the right time.” That game-changing play, by Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham, stripped the ball from Brady’s hands. If a Patriots player made it, it would be glorified as much as Butler’s legendary interception against the Seattle Seahawks.


Note to WEEI meanies: I know I’m not a football expert. But arrogance, I understand. The Patriots organization personifies it, and their fans accepted it as long as Belichick’s team won. Now that Belichick’s on the losing side of a Super Bowl showdown that had great meaning for Brady, a belated demand for transparency kicks in. Of course, Belichick should have to explain why Butler didn’t play a single defensive snap against the Eagles. Belichick shouldn’t be allowed to let rumors undermine Butler’s reputation. For once, Bill, tell us the truth. What really drove this coaching decision? Patriots Nation deserves to know. But don’t expect Belichick to give up anything.

He’s the MVP of rudeness and evasiveness. He got away with ill-tempered mumbles for too long and in fact, was worshipped for it. It is what it is. On to Cincinnati. Players and fans celebrated his opaqueness about injuries, from Brady’s hand to Rob Gronkowski’s concussion. Sure, it’s part of the strategy of keeping opponents off-balance. But Belichick took it to a bullying extreme. Everyone seemed to go along with it, at least until this season, when Belichick’s ego collided with Brady’s, according to media reports, which now seem accurate.

You know the old saying: There can’t be two kings.
That applies to the turf at Gillette Stadium, along with another old saying: Never give your enemies a weapon they can use against you.

By benching Butler without explanation, Belichick did just that. The Super Bowl defeat ruined a storybook ending for “Tom vs Time” and his ardent supporters. With loss, Belichick becomes the villain of the story. But to this non-football expert, saying the Patriots lost solely because of Belichick’s coaching decision about Butler sounds as whiny as saying Hillary Clinton lost because of former FBI director Jim Comey’s decision to reopen a probe into her e-mails.

falling for fake stories and old non-stories?

you're slippin' troll

What's fake about that video, jackass?

You're in denial.

Of course the Brady video probably put some starch in your little pistol, didn't it?

heh

Your never-ending trolling for Brady dirt led you to the fake Herald story.

and your thimble dick stiffened, didn't it, you fucking creep?

and as previously posted here, Tom v Time is very real and is very well done and very entertaining.

i would recommend it to any football fan, so if you know any you might mention it to them.

and the kiss on the lips between father and son seemed strange to me, but I'll leave it to you, an indecent piece of shit with no moral compass whatsoever to pass judgement on Brady and his parenting style with his children.

You're fucking clueless.

SSDD



The kid is like 11 and if you noticed he wiped his mouth after the smack. Ha!

That’s dad trying to hold on to his little boy a while longer before he is all grown up.

I can identify with for while I love the man my son has become I’d be lying if said I didn’t miss my little boy.

I guess he was about the same age as Brady’s kid when the kiss on the cheek after the bro dap and hug became our standard way of displaying affection.

Before that? A full smooch on the lips.

No, that's dad using physical affection to manipulate a child's behavior.

Fucked up.

Johnson said on Pardon My Take that the culture on the Eagles is one of a bunch of guys having a great time playing together, while the culture on the Patriots is of players fearing the consequences if they don’t do as they’re told.

Likely true.

A memo that would reveal HIS sources and methods scares the crap out of him.

That's because he didn't know he had any!

Adam Schiff reinforces his partisan stupidity.


Well, if anyone here can speak with authority regarding "partisan stupidity ", it's you, Jimmy.

Embarrassing for the Herald.

Speaking of embarrassing....

Why is Brady turning his life into the Kardashians?



$$$$$$$$

Not like he needs the money, unless he's thinking of leaving Giselle.
