Re: NFL NEWS

I don’t buy the conspiracy here, when Brown became available for only money (no trade) then BB signed him. BB and Brady have created a culture there that can afford to take chances like this. The pats are in a no lose situation. One of 2 things will happen, he will play great and not rock the boat o...

My God is Bert awful.

Complete lollypop high bounce ground ball is booted by Adrianza and Bert 1) says it was a nasty hop and 2) is baffled when it's scored an error.
But atleast he read you the back of his baseball card. “3rd year at the major league level”
