Patriot Way Kool Aid: Little Dannys deal
First off all everyone needs to understand I like the Patriots, I do. Watch every game. However, I'm not a blind fan boy who subscribes to in "Bill We Trust". I'm critical of the team as every fan should be of any team. With "Pats Nation" basically at dictator status and questioning nothing at one end and Eagles fans questioning everything and calling for executions daily of coaches and players.
but this Amendola deal is the WORST. No not financially because the deal is team friendly. But because he took a "hometown discount". Which has somehow morphed into the gospel around here. Like it's an honor to play for the Pats. Ya statistically you stand a better chance of winning a championship then most but, those chances dwindle everyday as the NFL Free Agent Market becomes rougher and rougher. Yet the Patriots stick to this hometown discount mantra like the bible.
and let me cut you off right there, Ya Brady does it. However, those restructurings are almost as always incredibly in his favor (hes also far richer then the common player)
So whats going to happen when either Hightower or Collins walks because "they wouldn't take a discount". Ill tell you exactly what the Pats call up the media and smear em like they always do (sans wilfork)
Look todays NFL Player is far different from even 5 years ago. Their kids who basically grew up ranked by Rivals and got huge press in College. Eventually, these kids get to a place where all they care about is money. And how can we blame them when most grew up poor as well? Cars, Champagne and Exotic Cats cant be bought in rings. There's no more Brown and Bruschi's left in the league eventually the hometown discount has to go or were getting real non competitive real fast.
(also I should note a certain J Phelps no that's too obvious! A certain Justin P likes to step out of line with the comments on here. He does his phone number goes out to the Internetz)
PS I keep trying to write a weekly piece about the comings and goings of a certain William J Smiddy. However, word is hes gone dark. If your reading this Smiddy let someone know your Ok :)
