Kraft will bet on Brady playing this week

The hottest topic in New England is whether Pats quarterback Tom Brady will make his 2009 debut during his team’s first preseason game of the year, eleven months after tearing an ACL.

Brady previously made it clear that he plans to play.  Now, owner Bob Kraft has chimed in.

“I’ll bet you 1,000 lottery tickets that [Brady] starts the first [preseason] game,” Kraft said during a press conference regarding the team’s new lottery-ticket deal.

Apparently, the press conference was held in Delaware.

    His 1000 lottery tickets vs. 1000 airplane bottles.
    Of course he’s going to start.
    Drink another one Kraft.

    And I bet you that the words “cheat” “pollard” and “tape” eventually find their way here, as with any other posts concerning the Patriots. Really getting tiresome.

    Kraft resorts to a shameless plug for lottery tickets a.k.a. the stupid tax.

    Gambling’s bad, mmmkay?
    (I was going to say “CHEATING’s bad, mmmkay?” but I decided PATRIOTS FANS have probably heard “CHEATERS” enough, so I decided there was really no need to further link the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS with CHEATING, that to push the issue of CHEATING, or ILLEGALLY TAPE-RECORDING opponent’s practices/walk-throughs/signals and bringing up that past CHEATING, LYING, UNDERHANDED ACTIVITY that was BANNED by the league in a clear memo about CHEATING and other UNFAIR ADVANTAGES and UNSPORTSMANLIKE BEHAVIOR and DISHONESTY and CHEATING would only further TARNISH the PATRIOTS’ good name. We were CHEATED of the TRUTH–it’s a SHAME someone in the league office decided to DESTROY any EVIDENCE that may have absolved the PATRIOTS of those FALSE charges of CHEATING, before it could be HONESTLY, properly reviewed by the public, media, and others. I mean, people call the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS CHEATERS all the time, saying, YOU CHEATED, YOU CHEATERS”, so why should I perpetuate the LIE with my joke, contribute to the FALSE, PHONY idea that the PATRIOTS CHEAT).

    yeah, patspsycho, people around here love telling the same jokes over and over again. Often they weren’t funny the first time.
    Did you know Andy Reid’s kids got busted for drugs?
    The one thing you didn’t account for is the tweaking of names to make them sound less than flattering…like E-girls (you see, it sounds like Eagles), and Deadskins, Cheatriots (i don’t even get that one, it sounds nothing like patriots). Just simple minded fools.

    Not sure why this is a story. Why WOULDN’T he play for a series or two? That’s what they and most everyone else does. And there will mostly be vanilla defenses in the preseason anyway.

    Simple jealousy, that’s all it is. More than 20 teams did worse than the Pats last year without Brady.
    I can’t wait until we play Miami, Portapotty says something, and then we go out and win by three or four TD’s.

    Those lottery tickets are actually pretty cool. You scratch off three video cameras and Bellachek gives you $500K.

    I’m sure, fans would stop talking about the cheating, if Pats fans would acknowledge the Pats legacy of this decade is tainted and stop mentioning Bellichik and Brady with God in one sentence. (Starting with Jamie Dukes.)

    The childish posts of the Patriot enviers who can not even learn to spell Belichick correctly will certainly never cease as long as Belichick remains their Head Coach.

    Wasn’t Brady the guy from Pennsylvania who blew his brains out on live TV?

    God, I remember that so clearly now–the video, the pictures/still-shots in the papers, gun in mouth, cheeks puffed out, bulging eyes staring down at the barrel…pretty graphic, even by today’s “standards”.
    Left a dent in my psyche as a kid.
    Good times, good times!

    Kraft:
    I’ll betcha 1000 lottery tix to a new lens & a 3 pack of video tapes, ShadyBrady plays & I’ll GUARANTEE that our o-line holds even more blatantly in the pre-season to assure that TommyBoy’s spindly little bitch legs don’t get touched.
