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.

How is talking to you going to help him win football games?  Besides, Belichick wasn't required to be there.  It was a coaches breadfast, he is the general manager and general manager Belichick didn't want to eat bacon & eggs with you (LOL).

Good for Belichek - While the rest of the coaches are being good company men and followuing their direction; he is off finding new ways to cheat to beat his comeptition.

Good for him! I've been on out of country work events and skipped breakfasts and other meals - I simply don't eat more than once a day - and I don't like people; and you know what: because I am that good at my job there have never been repurcussions I have suffered. And the same with Belichick.

If you're good, you do what you want to, and accept the penalties. If you are really good, you do what you want to, and there are no penalties.

Yeah, Belichick is an arrogant jackass (hell of a coach, but a jackass)...but, honestly, seeing the media cry like little girls when an athlete fails to kiss their asses is starting to become even worse.

The other coaches were probably just annoyed that they didn't follow through with what they actually wanted to do - not turn up.

Sew up your mangina Pete. Lockout news is bad enough without your sniveling whining. I swear you remind me of the mentally handicapped. I hate the Pats as much as any Indy fan and yet you make me feel compelled to defend him because your such a douche. I would have skipped too if I knew you were going to be there.

Jesus Prisco, are you really whining that Belichek didn't eat breakfast with you?  Your "analysis" is poor enough on factual matters to have to muddle through your crying about your feelings getting hurt.
