ProFootballTalk.com reports the following:
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, John Tomase of the Boston Herald is off the Patriots’ beat.
So there you go.
It took the Herald a year to make this hire, and while several local candidates were interviewed for the job, the paper ultimately decided to hire Ian R. Rapoport from The Birmingham News to fill the Patriots beat writer position.
If this is true, now perhaps we can put the whole ugly Tomase incident behind us, and maybe the Herald will even finally open up the comment section on Patriots articles now.
