    Bruce, is Dennis anything like Mike Adams in that he has a really thin skin? for some reason he comes across that way.

    bruce,
    i love belichick more than any other sports figure in history but this peter king comment is wayyyyy different than tomase article. tomase said it absolutely happened acording to his trusted sources. peter king is saying that according to his trusted sources, the colts THOUGHT this to be true.

      True but I still think he's giving validation to the notion – which is going to be blown out of proportion by others, I'm sure – that the Patriots had the visiting locker room "bugged" and this is the reason for their success at home.
