Belichick is heartless, there is dissension in the ranks, the dynasty is over, blah, blah, blah. It is entirely predictable and always, always wrong. Almost hilarious.

I just stop reading those guys entirely and never worry about them again. If Ben Volin wrote that it was a beautiful, sunny day outside I'd walk to the nearest window to see for myself. He's got a toxic approach to the best team in the history of football and thinks he's a brave rebel. Not so much.

I don't want a homer, just give me the facts and remind me of the historical context to any moves the Pats are making or might make. If you're good enough to analyze or anticipate any new wrinkes in their scheme I'm interested. All the TMZ stuff, no thanks. This team will make you look stupid and it won't take long.

Most good, smart writers for the papers leave after a couple of years on the beat. There is a reason for that.

Right now I like Evan Lazar quite a bit, because he is savvy on the X's and O's and isn't ashamed to admire this organization. His website CLNS is awful, but his content is excellent for the most part.

The day the Boston Globe goes out of business I'm going to celebrate.

Hack article from a hack writer in Ben Volin. He takes his baseless opinion and spins it like it's fact. There's a reason why General Sherman said that if "all reporters were dead today, we'd have reports from hell by morning".

I like the NESN folks, they tend to accurately convey what they see and hear and provide solid boots on the ground coverage without engaging in excessive speculation or rumor mongering.

As an aside to the story, I tried to comment to one of the stories on this subject by Florio over on NBCSports and it didn't clear. I expect it was the reference to "fake news" that doomed it.

What a novel concept. Actual reporting.

The ‘Nick Caserio Wants Out’ Report Was Not A Report At All; It Was Opinion

Quote:
By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston

BOSTON (CBS) — On Monday afternoon, The Boston Globe shared a story that carried the headline, “The real story in the Patriots-Texans clash: Nick Caserio wants out.” The story included the line, “The real story is this: Nick Caserio wants out of New England.” The story also included this line: “Specifically, he wants that Texans job.” This line was also there: ” It’s certainly a significant plot twist that Caserio wants out.” And, there were these two lines: “If Caserio is concerned about job security, there is no better place than New England, where he has lasted 19 years. Yet he still wants the Houston job.”

Lastly, there was this conclusion: “It is interesting, to say the least, to see that Caserio wants out of New England.”

The story was very straightforward, and given that it was written by NFL reporter Ben Volin, most outlets (including this one and many others) considered the story to be a report.

But apparently, this was all just Volin’s opinion.

Volin went on Sports Radio 610 in Houston and explained that he did not have any sources telling him that Caserio wants out.

“So I just want to clarify one thing,” Volin said on “The Triple Threat” show. “I’m seeing my column that I just posted a half-hour ago, I’m seeing it being referred to as a report all over the internet. And I don’t think it’s a report. I’m not talking, like, I don’t have direct information from Caserio or his agent. Like, no one’s telling me, ‘Aw, Nick wants out.’ What I’m doing is looking at all the facts of the situation and analyzing it and using some logic and common sense to try to tell people what’s going on. And what I think is going on is pretty clear, that Nick Caserio wanted that Texans job, and the fact that the Krafts and the Patriots had to lawyer up and enforce his contract and file the tampering charges against the Texans, it’s pretty clear that Caserio wanted that job and the Patriots are basically enforcing Caserio to play out his contract, so to speak.”

On the one hand, the story itself didn’t cite any sources. On the other hand, the definitive language both in the headline and the story did make it appear to be factual.

And while Volin’s dot-connecting is fair and logical, it’s not the only possible conclusion one could draw from the situation. It remains possible that Caserio is perfectly happy in his role as direct of player personnel for the Patriots, and it remains possible that Jack Easterby tried to improperly recruit Caserio during the Patriots’ ring ceremony last week at Robert Kraft’s house. If both of those scenarios were true, then it’s likely that Caserio would have informed his bosses of such contact. Those bosses may have responded accordingly.

Now, all of that is just mere conjecture, and it is not reporting. It does, though show at least one alternate theory that could or should have curbed clear-cut phrases like “Caserio wants out of New England,” lest such a story be interpreted nationally as a report and not an opinionated column.

This is a clear example of why I loathe the media. They would ruin the harmony of a team, the "esprit de corp" if you will, for a meaningless nugget. If there isn't a nugget available, they will make one up. The media is full of malice.

Volin's a particularly slimy, unethical snake. And dangerously stupid, to boot.


Another successful employment search by the Globe.

Because Volin is doing exactly what his bosses want him to do. They don't care if they're hated and mocked, only that you're paying attention.

I like to believe my steadfast refusal to click ESPN links played a minute role in the slaughter over there.

It’ll work here too if we just stop paying attention to the tool.

I think Mike Reiss is so far ahead of the rest of the Boston jackal pack, it's not even funny. What's more, Reiss also seems like a genuinely decent guy as well.

There's a reason why he gets far more in-depth interviews with players and staff, they trust him.

Not one time in his story did he say it was his opinion or what he thought, he reported it as fact. Then again that is media. Report things as if they are fact and then say its an opinion piece later. Volin does that and so do many others.
