Belichick The Arrogant

NEW ORLEANS --  New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick basically stuck out his middle finger to the other 31 coaches in the NFL Tuesday.

How else can you explain his not attending a supposedly mandatory media breakfast here at the NFL league meetings?

The other 31 coaches all showed up, some probably a bit reluctantly, but not Belichick.

And word is the league will do nothing about it.

He's bigger than the game. Didn't you know? There is no arguing that Belichick is a great coach. But does that mean he gets to adhere to his own rules?

I can tell you this: Several coaches were more than aware that he wasn't there and weren't thrilled that they had to be and he wasn't there.

I just hope one of them has the guts to call him out on it. Rib him about it.

"So your time is more valuable than ours?" they should say.

Why wouldn't you? He's just a peer, even if he sometimes acts like he isn't.

This is just another way of Belichick showing his arrogance. It's like when he pushed that photographer a couple of years ago. Or when he got caught in Spygate.

Rules are for fools?

Too bad the biggest fool Tuesday was the guy who doesn't follow them.

Let me start by saying I'm a Jet's fan, so I am certainly not Belichick's #1 fan.
However, it's a freaking media breakfast.  It's not a big deal.  Maybe he had a perfectly legitimate excuse, like not wanting to answer Prisco's stupid questions.  
I'm guessing that's the reason Prisco is upset about it anyway.

Last I checked his job is to win football games, not attend breakfasts with the press and his peers.
Talking with the press is actually part of his job.

Maybe he didn't like what was on the menu and went to Denny's.  Last I checked his job is to win football games, not attend breakfasts with the press and his peers.  They can't help him win games.

The NFL will do nothing because the breakfast was NOT mandatory.

He is obsessed with Coach BB and the Pats... I’m not surprised he brought up spygate for the billionth and one time!!! The team everyone loves to hate. Not surprised, not surprised.

Man, I sure hope prisco checked all his sources to make sure Bill did not have extenuating circumstances... because this could backfire bigtime on ol' Pete.  I like Pete but this thing seems so misguidedly personal for some reason.  Moreover, Bill might have left the eggs behind and Pete might find them on his face before its all over... I am desperately trying to avoid coming to the conclusion that this seems to be a personal attack!
