Kraft Goes On Record About The ESPN Article

Kraft talks to PK and denies much of what is in the espn story.

https://www.si.com/nfl/2018/01/06/ne...tom-brady-espn

A little of what Kraft said.

In a telephone interview, Kraft disputed all tenets of the story.
“Until Monday at the trade deadline—I believe that was Oct. 30—the last time I talked to Bill about Jimmy’s situation was in a group with Bill, [club president] Jonathan [Kraft], [director of player personnel] Nick Caserio … a small group of us, I think in June. That is the last time I talked to Bill about it. I would see Nick occasionally and say, ‘Anything going on?’
“I assumed once the season started, we’d talk again at the end of the season about it. The next time I spoke with Bill about it was the Monday before the trade deadline. He called me on that Monday and said he got a deal with San Francisco, Jimmy for a second-round pick and [quarterback] Brian Hoyer. Turns out they had to cut Hoyer and then we got him. But really, this was basically a second-round pick and Brian Hoyer for Jimmy. Bill asked me if I was OK with this. I was really taken aback a little bit. I wanted to think about it. I talked to Jonathan, who was okay with it, and I called Bill back and said, ‘OK.’”
Kraft called the report that he and Belichick met for half a day during the season about Garoppolo “a total fabrication and fiction. I am telling you, it’s fiction.”

Yeah that's my personal philosophy as well, is to disregard what people actually involved in situations say and instead trust anonymous sources who weren't directly involved. Far more credible.

Good point I will cliff note it. Shank thinks Kraft is a liar. He thinks Brady's ego will be the downfall of the team. BB is upset that he has been hamstrung and will go to another team thus leaving Kraft and I quote, with no good coaches, a fragile team full of guys who cant play without belichicks coaching and a 41 year old has been QB and thus the pats will die to the era of 1990.

Of course none of us are surprised by this. And there is zero reason for Kraft to lie as if the BSPN story were true that would only infuriate BB. People just can't stand the fact that BB made a business decision based on multiple factors.

You have to love the last line by King: "It’s unknown why there is such a gap between what Wickersham reported and what Kraft has vehemently denied."

Maybe because BSPN is a piece of fake news trash Peter?

King is a full blown idiot with very little useful information who types a lot of words with virtually no content. But there are enough of his fans out there on a national level to make Kraft's statement useful.

Going forward, I wouldn't be surprised if both BB and TB12 make a statement at their next presser, essentially amounting to "this is the only time I will comment on this and will only answer questions about our upcoming game".

I used to really love King but he became compromised under the weight of a barbaric league run by

That being said, he is national and still has clout and Kraft has always had a great relationship with him. I just like the fact that he went to him and passed over our local tools (not including Reiss, Curran and Bedard).

I would not expect a presser from BB or Brady. I think they are more than happy to let Kraft handle this given the high level nature of the story and the fact that Kraft is the one being blamed for supposedly forcing BB's hand. Plus they got ring #6 to focus on.

Exactly! Years ago King was a good reporter but like so many, DG destroyed his credibility.

Did something go down in Foxboro? Probably, but I doubt that it was as sinister as Wickersham (sham is the perfect word for him) makes it out to be. Three powerful men, big egos, bound to be disagreements. I'm just not buying the snits and high drama. Real life tends to be a lot more low-key. That's why 'reality' TV is all hyped-up fake drama.

King's only sources are NFL owners, so it's really no surprise, he kisses their asses enough.

Also, there will be no statement. They will respond to any question with 'We already put out a statement about that", meaning the Stacy James, er, 'United We Stand' statement.
