What a HACK piece of writing.  So he sits on the BOARD of an outfit that holds a 16% share of a company that holds a minority share in gambling sites makes Kraft owner of a casino??  I was going be upset over such terrible writing till I reread the beginning where he said he was a NY Post writer who was fired. Nuff said that just proves he is a hack.

He laid out exactly how it's a violation of the rules.

Except it isn’t. He sits on the board, he is NOT the owner or the major stakeholders in said company.  That’s per his own words! He said “you can have a minority stack” which he does.  Sitting on the board doesn’t make him a director or an officer. He need be CEO/chairman or hold a title to be an officer or director.. 

 

this piece screams bothjng but an angry NY Writer who hates the Pats.. half of it was spent saying it was killed for no good reason.. ya maybe because it was proven false?

I agree. Of all the Patriots-related things I don't care about, I don't care about this the most.

The article is written like the author simply resents rich, powerful people and assumes they achieve their status by insider advantage or corruption.  There is an audience and market for that type of writing.  Karl Marx did it in the 1860's and it still hanging around.

    • So it shall be written. So it shall be done.   Yul Brynner.... The Ten Commandments.    
    • That would mean to me none have a 1st rd grade based on his way of grading them which would be based on his long experience of doing so.
       Because projecting what a receiver will turn out to be in 2-3 years is so difficult, his estimate then is if so many are so equal, it would be wise to pick from another position that has less depth, and to get a needed WR later.  See Braden Smith
       Ballard basics IMO.
    • Wide Receiver rankings from Chris Landry (no details scouting reports posted yet)   These are just talent rankings by a pro scout, and NFL and college consultant.  One would need interviews, medical info, scheme assessment to prioritize a better team fit order (or if a player gets taken off)   7.4 – 7.0 = Superstar Ability   (0)

    • A late round sleeper pick would be Ulysees Grant III out of Akron.    Per Terry Bowden (his coach) he compares him favorably to Takeo Spikes (whom he also coached).    Sideline-to-sideline speed and can cover tightends and running backs.
    • I don't see how you concluded that I concluded anything from what I wrote.    I wrote 4 sentences.   The first sentence said "If....true", and ended with a question mark.   The second sentence contained " I think", "unlikely", and "possibly".   The third sentences contained "might", and "assuming".   And the fourth sentence contained "possibly" again.   I chose not to write about the RB.  I don't care about the RBs.
