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.

Belichick The Arrogant

I normally like Pete's writing, but this is indeed a hissy fit. There are 31 NFL coaches available to share their insight on everything NFL but the only thing that is important to him is the guy that is not there. Pete's article actually says one thing in its text and one thing outside of its text. It makes it very clear how important Bill Belichick is to the league and the press. Why else make this the focus of the meeting and present it this way? Clearly the article by itself re-enforces the fact that the 31 folks present were comparatively unimportant since Pete has not choosen to give their input any attention.

Well it might have been a seating issue.  He could not sit next to Ryan and McCarthy who have complained about him.  He was fired by Cleveland/Ravens/Cleveland or however that worked.  Nobody in the AFC East probably wanted to see him.  I doubt he has many friends in the AFC North.  He is AFC so anyone in the NFC will not like him.  The media does not like him.  Maybe he was out talking to Randy Moss who said he'd like to return to the Patriots and they are hammering out a deal.  Oh wait you cannot do that now and Belechick is a stickler for the rules.  Or maybe 31 coaches were glad not to see him and not have their disgestion screwed up.

Doesn't Bill know breakfest is the most important meal of the day!

i'm sure the hoodie is tremblin' after what u wrote. i'm prettty sure he still has the respect of his peers. do u? they might not like him, and i'm quite sure he could care less what other coaches feel about him. as long he wins he can skip any freakin' meal or meeting he chooses.

maybe the other 31 coaches will find out he was preparing for the draft, when the Pats manipulate it to where Belichick wants it,...... again?

Siriously Pete. I know we're all desperate for our usual football routine, but trying to come up with NEWS, when there isn't any suggests you should take a vacation, and give us all one from you as well.

Word is Bill was caught behind Fat @sses Rex Ryan and Andy Reid in the Buffet Line and they scoffed up all the meat and eggs.  Who wants cold Cherry Danish Pastries for breakfast?  So he got pissed and left..good for him.  Pete was too busy massaging Judge to notice.
