Borges Fake News (confirmed): Something about Brady, blah, blah, blah

The report is from Borges, so make what you want of it. This is the link to the article if you care to give him clicks (personally, I have no desire to read a Borges article).

http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/c..._or_he_ll_skip

This is PFT's summary:

The GOAT wants to get paid accordingly. Reportedly.

Ron Borges of the Boston Herald reports that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has decided to get compensated in a way that he never really has. Citing unnamed “sources close to” Brady, he is “ready to sit out all of this year’s offseason organized team activities unless he receives a contract extension that carries with it up-front money similar to what his former protege, Jimmy Garoppolo, will receive from the San Francisco 49ers.”

It’s unclear what “up-front money” means. Signing bonus? Full guarantees at signing? Something else?

Brady currently is due to make $14 million in 2018 and 2019, the final two years of his current deal. He consistently has gotten new contracts that trigger praise for “taking less” while always getting plenty of “up-front money.” His latest contract, signed in 2016, paid him $28 million to sign. The contract before that one paid $30 million to sign.

He’s never had to make a power play to get paid, and it’s odd to think that Brady already has drawn a line in the sand, only five days after Super Bowl LII, about his next contract. Besides, if he’s going to make a power play, wouldn’t it be much better to say he’ll simply retire?

Some in league circles believe that Brady made that threat in order to ensure that the Patriots keep offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. Borges hints at dynamic, writing that McDaniels’ retention “was in part orchestrated by Brady’s insistence he be retained as head coach-in-waiting.”

Here’s the other thing that doesn’t make sense here. It hasn’t been all that long since Seth Wickersham of ESPN.com painted a picture of the Brady-Garoppolo relationship that had everything but a mirror, mirror on the wall. Brady would confirm the notion that he had a bizarre obsession with Garoppolo if Garoppolo’s contract suddenly sparked Brady, who consistently takes less, to suddenly want more — and to use Garoppolo’s deal as the comparison.

Borges may eventually be able to say “I was right” on this one because the Patriots are likely to give Brady a new deal before the starts of OTAs. And there surely will be a way to interpret the details of the two deals and argue that Brady indeed got “up-front money similar” to Garoppolo, since Brady already may have twice gotten “up-front money” as good or better than Garoppolo’s new deal. Still, it seems like a bit of a stretch to think that Brady would specifically demand to be paid like any other quarterback, since he’s never taken that position a single time in his 18-year career, regardless of who at any given money was getting paid more than him.

I wish like you see in the movies, that Borges traipses out of his rat hole in his 70s wrinkled garb, hair disheveled like he sleeps on his head and combs with a pork chop, and slides into Plymouth Volare. Key in ignition. Turn. Fireball.

It's all BS.

Borges was hoodwinked by a texter who pretended to be Don Yee.

Borges is an idiot.

Absolutely. Everyone in New England knows this. But the rest of the country does not and we will now be hearing this for the next few weeks.

And it's a guarantee that the local Boston hating mediots: Toucher, Felger and Squeaky will be all over this, not that I will be listening.

Ah, our local curmudgeons are at it again ... sigh

Who in the world in Brady's camp would ever talk to Borges?

It is interesting to think though how much Brady could really command on the market. 35 mil? Part ownership? The moon?

I was told that @RonBorges report Brady would skip OTAs unless he got paid like Jimmy G. is "off the reservation."

Welp. That didn't last long. Herald in typical Herald fashion is pulling the FAKE story. Borges ran with it from one text from a guy pretending to be Don Yee and NEVER verified the texter or found another source. Again, typical Herald "journalism." A plagiarist and a liar and a HACK. Kraft should threaten to sue again.

The Boston Herald likely will be retracting a Patriots story, again

Love this part with Flrio calling him out:

Quote:
Just as this isn’t the first Patriots problem for the Herald, it’s not the first professional problem for Borges. In 2007, he left the Boston Globe “following a two-month, unpaid suspension for plagiarizing another reporter’s column.” The violation at the time came from Borges’ longstanding habit of crafting a Sunday notes column with a general disclaimer that said “material from personal interviews, wire services, other beat writers, and league and team sources was used in this report.”

It was, in essence, a self-issued license to plagiarize. Indeed, at one point, I’d noticed in a single Sunday column from Borges multiple items that had appeared initially, and as far as I could tell exclusively, on PFT. I emailed him about my concerns, and it didn’t go well.

It’s about to not go well for Borges. (We’ve contacted the Herald for comment.) Plagiarism generally is the kiss of death for anyone who writes for a living. Blindly trusting a phony source without any apparent effort to confirm the identity of the source or the accuracy of the information is a close second.

Minihane on EEI is crowing about 'exposing' Borges. Shouldn't get too self-congratulatory as that station employs Tomase.

One of the great, yet underappreciated, pleasures of being a Patriots fan is watching certain unscrupulous members of the media self-immolate themselves by getting caught making shit up.

While Borges was largely tamed a long time ago, it appears that he doesn't have anyplace else to go and could not resist his pathological desire to rip on the Pats.

Oh, God, I hope he is officially canned this time. Put him out of his misery for good, please, somebody.

“On a day when they could have had impact players David Terrell or Koren Robinson or the second best tackle in the draft Kenyatta Walker, they took Georgia defensive tackle Richard Seymour who had 1 1/2 sacks last year in the pass-happy SEC, and is too tall to play tackle at 6-6 and too slow to play defensive end. This genius move was followed by trading out of a spot where they could have gotten the last decent receiver in the draft Robert Ferguson and settled for tackle Matt Light, who will not help any time soon.”
