So the next time you hear some broadcaster or sportswriter muttering that Bill Belichick never tells them anything, take that as a sign. If Belichick didn’t feel like wasting his time with them, you probably shouldn’t either.

    Break up the Bruins. (insert sarcasm here)

    Farinella is a clown.

    A few years earlier than anyone thought or planned, the Celtics are Rondo’s team. Between the contract and the injuries, it is his team. And that is actually a very good thing.

    Sorry Farinella, but I don’t think Belichick thinks of the media at all. Isn’t that why most of the media despises him?…once again, the media thinking it’s all about “them”….pathetic

      I just blew my nose. Clearly that was to irritate Farinella.

      I believe his favorite Black Sabbath song is “Paranoid”.

      Bingo AOB–with the media, it’s always all about THEM.

      The very notion that Belichick even gave a nanosecond of thought to annoying the media by basically naming himself defensive coordinator is beyond laughable–unless you live in that insular world of dinosaur journalism that is.

    The Bruins will stay just above average, no better – no worse until the Jacobs sell the team.
