  1. I wonder what bank Mark Farinella uses…I figure if he can whine and drop them because they have the audacity to call and try and recover their money…then I want to use them. You see when a member of the media whines and complains that BSMW is pointing out how stupid, lazy and uninformed they are…then I want nothing to do with that member of the media.

    Here is an idea Mark, do a better job, don't write a lazy column detailing your life because quite frankly we do not care, talk sports, don't bitch about how someone makes your job tougher and in the end we might read your babble.


  2. I wonder how many times Borges thanked Ryan during that interview for defeating THE EVIL ONE in the playoffs.


  3. Really disappointed with Reiss. It was intended as an 'opinion' but come on – does he seriously expect us to believe that Belichick's absence was disrespectful to the other NFL head coaches when only the media are making a mountain out of a mole hill? And of course Belichick plays by his own rules – even if this event were mandatory for NFL head coaches he still wouldn't be obligated since he isn't a member of the coaches association (the only one who isn't I believe). I suppose THAT is disrespectful as well?

    Belichick spends enough energy during the season evading inane questions from lazy journalists, so I don't blame him for not wanting to be there to officially "not comment" on Meriweather, the labor situation, New England's draft strategy, etc. And Reiss knows that if Belichick did attend, ~95% of the questions would have been related to those issues.

    I hope this isn't a case of Reiss calling out Belichick to 'make his bones' and win points with his fellow journalists. Stick to analysis kid.


  4. As we know, there are plenty of writers in the Boston sports media who do a less than stellar job most of the time. Our eyes have been poisoned by the likes of Shaughnessy, Borges, and Farinella, but it could be worse. We could have the likes of T.J. Simers. Simers wrote this complete piece of garbage on Dodgers outfielder Marcus Thames for the LA Times.…. Simers does not get why Thames would ignore him. I don't get it either. Thames should have belted Simers in the chops. Ty Duffy, from The Big Lead breaks down Simers article and shows what a tool Simers is.


    1. Wow. Very nasty, and if he really did "introduce" himself to Thames with that "question," he should be ashamed of himself. Isn't Simers the guy who spent all of the 2008 and 2010 NBA Finals ripping on the city of Boston (when he wasn't ripping on Paul Pierce)?
