New England Dairy & Food Council takes the blame for Patriots school snafu

The Patriots are one of the most polarizing teams in the NFL.  And so when something negative regarding the team makes its way into the media, plenty of anti-Pats perk up.

Though the Patriots have supplied many reasons for legitimate criticism over the past few years, the plight of the students of Lebanon Middle School apparently does not fall on the shoulders of the franchise that technically is America’s team — even if plenty of Americans don’t wish to claim them.

The New England Dairy & Food Council has issued a statement accepting responsibility for the fact that the students expected a member of the team to show up on Tuesday.

“New England Dairy & Food Council apologizes to the students at Lebanon Middle School in Connecticut and to the New England Patriots for the miscommunication that disappointed students earlier this week and led to undeserved criticism of the Patriots,” the group said in a statement forwarded to us this evening.

“The HOPSports multi-media, interactive fitness session we bring to schools throughout New England does not involve appearances by Patriots players.  While a player appearance was never promised with this program, we now realize our communication with the school had created false expectations.

“It was New England Dairy & Food Council’s mistake to use imprecise language, and we deeply regret that it resulted in false expectations by the students at Lebanon Middle School and generated negative press for the Patriots.  We are currently working with Lebanon Middle School to make this right for them and their students.

“The New England Patriots do exemplary work in the community and deserve praise for their commitment to philanthropy.”

Though the communications from the New England Dairy & Food Council technically was accurate, it fairly could have caused some to believe that a player would be coming.  So the NEDFC did the right thing.

And while the Patriots have no obligation to clean up a mess that someone else made, they’ve got an opportunity to score some major P.R. points by sending a player or two to the school for a photo op.

    Bus the kids (Free of charge) the kids up to a training camp practice, supply them with a random jersey, free food and beverages and let them meet players and coach BB afterward.
    I think that would be really cool of the Patriots.

  2. buddha says: May 6, 2010 8:35 PM

    Of course, because we all know that the Patriots, themselves, would never admit to any wrongdoing.

    LMFAO

    “technically is America’s team”

    What in the world are you talking about?
    There are 2 maybe 3 teams that can try an claim that. And the patriots sure as hell aren’t one if them.
    Pittsburgh – because of the massive rabid fan base
    Dallas- because of NFL films (bandwagon fans don’t count in this kind of thing. Sorry 1-7boys fans)
    Green bay- huge fan base as well, but not as big as Pittsburgh.
    That’s it. Case closed.

    It doesn’t matter, Mike. Retards on this site like Matt Walsh, JimmySmith and ItalianArmyGuy (I have never been happier to have chosen the Air Force than when that wannabe tough guys started posting here) will keep blathering on about cheating and asteriks. Yawn, boys. We get it.
    I wonder if they consider stealing a catchers signals at a baseball game cheating? I can imagine those 3 going to a Little League game and screaming “CHEATERS!” at 9 and 10 year olds.

  9. Doctor Connors says: May 6, 2010 8:59 PM

    America’s team. I like the sound of that. The Patriots are indeed America’s team.
    Everyone is just jealous of the greatest coach, QB, and dynasty in NFL history. Especially crybaby Jester fans.

    Typical for the post NBC PFT, takes half a dozen posts to get the full true story. Really Foolio, now that you’ve sold your soul to a legit media conglomerate and reach a much wider audience than before you might have to start employing more legit journalism practices. The incomplete posts are turning you into the TMZ of pro football. Your “get the mouse clicks” agenda is becoming apparent and the sensationalistic posts are not putting your creation in a favorable light.

  13. Dr. Kenneth Noisewater says: May 6, 2010 9:22 PM

    ItalianArmyGuy and Matt Walsh are to blame for the outbreak of the herp in Bath Houses across the Northeast.

  14. ItalianArmyGuy says: May 6, 2010 9:22 PM

    Boston still identifies more with European socialism than with the American independent spirit – so there is really nothing “polarizing” or “America’s Team” about them or their football team.
    They are a bunch of pansy Euro-trash wannabe’s that root for a cheater because it feeds their sense of entitlement. A Euro-trash icon like Ovechkin could run for mayor of Boston and win in a landslide.
    Hard to be considered “America’s Team” when you really have never wanted to be part of that downtrodden piece-of-crap called “America” anyway, isn’t it now, Boston? I’m sure they would be much more proud if you called them something like “Moscow’s team”, or “Prague’s team”.

    Cue the dumb comments from the biggest loser on this site Ben Rothlisburger( who obviously has no life or job) over/under today 100+ comments on anything.
    Frank Burns who’s namesake represents losers like himself AKA MASH & Simpsons. Why would you use a screen name of a loser unless that is how you feel about yourself like Matt Walsh the Jests fan who I won’t even waste my time??
    Blah Blah TB dumped his pregnant GF you sorry misinformed mental midget. When you need to get your facts straight try GOOGLE.
    Italian Army Guy, yes its BB’fault of anythng that happens in the world.
    Yes I know we beat your teams sorry asses in every playoff game.
    Sorry I couldn’t respond to whatever stupid comments you made while watching TV collecting unemployment today.
    I believe you said somewhat my Steeler hatred was exposed. Sorry no hatred, just enjoy my inlaws from yinsville cloeslaw eating gourmet land in the Ohio valley wallowing with a POS as the leader of your franchise which does not/will not matter for the next decade. And especally losers like yourselves that are so sensitive that you have have a social misfit leading your nation.
    By the way, where do Steelers fans think their colors are black and gold? It is called yellow like their fanbase!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This post is only because I know the same losers will comment.
    Have a great evening, to all other Steeler fans no disrespect we all have our crosses to bear.
    Its too bad that this site has brought such a limited football mentality over the past year.
    I miss the old PFT !!
    In the immortal words of Michael Corleone, all debts have been settled.
    Look forward to your responses tomorrow when I enjoy my morning coffee before I start my work day because i do not sit all night on PFT like some others..

    Nope, but several of your NE self-appointed “spokepeople” fans sure are pieces of work.
    Take “ampats” for instance…
    The little cocksucker spent the better part of the last two months hanging out and constantly mouthing off in every Steelers thread because he ‘thinks” Ben Roethlisberger “victimized women”, and he decides to prove his point by, well, victimizing women.
    You know, making all sorts of cowardly, sexually inflammatory comments to all the women Steelers fans. Yup, real tough guy.
    Probably bitch slaps little girls too.
    Since he apparently speaks for all of you. what’s up with that shit?
    Anyone from NE care to explain?

    I’ve lived in several different parts of the country and I never met a Steelers fan that wasn’t a bonafide pussy, or an absolute moron. Take your pick. I’m not kidding. Coincidence? I think not. It’s a large fan base, but it’s a damn stupid fan base too, and stupid can spread just like any other virus.

  37. smashmouthd says: May 7, 2010 3:18 AM

    The Patriots are a great team, they have been in the playoffs more than TEN times to the SB five times in the past fifteen years.
    Bill Belichick is a Hall Of Fame coach
    Kraft is a savvy business man who helped steer the organization to great success and profitability
    Tom Brady is a Hall Of Fame Quarterback
    Nothing anyone says in these PFT Comments is ever going to change any of that, end of story.

  38. Icantadd says: May 7, 2010 6:03 AM

    whatdiga:
    The Patriots TECHNICALLY are America’s team, namely because of the whole ‘Patriots’ thing.
    See, there was this thing called “The Revolutionary War” where the 13 British Colonies that were settled in what would later become the United States of America, declared independence from England. The people who fought against England were commonly referred to as ‘patriots’.
    Also, America’s flag colors are red, white and blue, and while it can argued that New England’s jerseys are now red, silver, and blue, at the team’s inception, they were in fact red, white and blue.
    Is any of this starting to sink in as to why the Patriot’s might be referred to as ‘America’s Team’?

  39. iAMthatiAM says: May 7, 2010 7:07 AM

  40. JimmySmith says: May 7, 2010 7:14 AM

    The important point is in the last paragraph, the Patriots have an opportunity to score major PR points and time will tell what they choose to do with it.
    Maybe Matt Walsh could choose to donate his own time and show up with some video tapes, like the Ram’s walk thru before the Superbowl for starters, and that would really draw some publicity. Especially since Kraft thought he purchased the only copy.

  41. ampats says: May 7, 2010 7:26 AM

    Ben Rothliburger,
    Do you just make up comments to justify your stupidity? The best comment was how I have made negative comments about women.
    I challenge you to find ANYWHERE on the PFT archives that I have ever said anything or any sort.
    Those comments are reserved for Steeler fans that support Ben and what he was accussed of.
    Sorry I don’t spend 24/7 on this site to respond to your innane comments.
    The only permission that you could give me is to excuse your stupidity based on the fact that you are obviously mentally challenged which continues to be proven by your useless multiple posts on every post.
    Based on your comments and the fact of your limited use of the english language, it is obvious that even most Steelers fans do not want to be associated with a mental midget as yourself.
    When you can back up my challenge that you find ANY comments about my comments about women let me know .
    Till then crawl back into your hole.
    Most Steeler fans are passionate and defend their team when attacked, ie Deb etc,
    Make all the comments back you want because I understand that you cannot help yourself since you are a dope.
    Have fun with your computer commenting on all the posts thinking that people actually think you make sense instead of all PFT nation laughing at the loser you are.
    Have a nice life, I have wasted enough of my time communicating with a mental midget !!

    Anytime the word,” Patriots, show up on this blog.” The pathetic losers who get thier jollies by continuing the “Spygate, episode has to be brought up?”
    Since spygate, we have had so many issues in the league. I don’t have time to list them all, but they have been writen about on this blog in detail.
    Without mentioning names, here we go!
    1. Rape
    2. Manslaughter
    3. Murder for hire
    4. More rape
    5. Drugs, Coach’s sons selling drugs, Team’s stealing Drugs
    6. Additional Rape
    7. Assault, Domestic Abuse, Child support or lack thereof.
    I could make a list of Teams and ask you to match the team to the crime. A just for fun thing. Alas, I have a life and a job and not enough time to do it.
    In an attempt to save a little time, if you believe that, “Spygate, is that terrible?” Two words
    PATHETIC LOSERS….
    I’m sure the Pats have whooped your Teams azz and you can’t get over it! I suggest you seek help. There are many fine mental health facilities everywhere accross the country. Hopefully, you have health insurance and a job.

    ————————————————-
    No, “yellow” would be you, not admitting how exposed as a hyprocrite and coward you are.
    When Roethlisberger got accused of rape, you CLAIMED you were all outraged because you had daughters yada yada and all. Had nothing to do with football and your Steeler hatred, so you said. Oh by the way, Ben wasn’t even charged with any crime.
    Then along comes Taylor, who DOES get charged, and suddenly you’re all “waaah, no jokes, he’s trying to turn his life around!” Suddenly big bad daughter daddy forgets about his kids, and STICKS UP for a guy who again, has been CHARGED with rape. Tsk tsk.
    That’s why we’re all laughing at you now — because you have been exposed as a fraud, a fake, a loser, for all to see. It WAS all about your Steeler hatred, and shows that the Steelers own you, biatch.
    Now go back and enjoy your kid-blowing-off classy team up there in Chowderheadland.

    And so I decide to read a few of the comments and stuff…
    And then, I get through about 6 or so comments and then I totally forget what the article was about and then I realize I was in this really strange “battle of the basement dwellers” day dream. So I slapped myself in the face and that didn’t change anything…so then I checked my XBOX to make sure it wasn’t stuck in some stupid internet chat game.
    And then…I like fishsticks!

    Ampats, May 2010: “Hey everybody give poor Lawrence Taylor a break! He’s trying to turn his life around! No jokes please! Whatever happened to innocent til proven guilty, let’s wait for all the facts to come in! By the way do I have daughters? Oops I must’ve lost them somewhere.”

    Thanks for bringing out all the crazies with your “tell us how much you hate the Patriots” thread Florio.
    I wonder if we rounded them all up, put them all in one locked room, put one sandwich in the middle of the room and left them there for a week, who would be the one to survive?

    Tj.52, thats real easy.
    First of all, the steelers fans wouldn’t eat it cause they all think the patriots fans made the sandwich so they must have cheated and poisoned it. And then, all the Jets fans wouldn’t eat it because they saw the ravens fans talkin in the corner about how the meats weren’t kosher and the redskins fans…why are they here again?
    I said I’m coming mom!

    One more thing, ampats bud — little newsflash for ya.
    You’re in no position to be lecturing others right now. Not after what you just pulled.
    See, you and all your sick little buddies have been exposed. Exposed for using the alleged victim of sexual assault as a tool for beating on a football team you hate. And hiding behind your real motives by using this whole “concern for the victim” garbage act.
    That’s just sick.
    And we know that’s exactly what you did, because you exposed yourself the way you treated the news of Taylor’s own sexual assault charge — with a SIXTEEN-YEAR OLD GIRL. You’d think the “father of teen-age daughters” would go ape-shit over news like that but… no, instead you DEFEND TAYLOR, and tell us to back off with the jokes.
    So I guess when a Steeler supposedly does something bad with a 20-year old WOMAN, that’s a huge crime.
    But when a non-Steeler does something with a GIRL, we should pity the football player, because hey, he was trying to turn his life around.
    Some logic you have. Some priorities. Seriously dude, you have some real mirror-looking to do here.
    That is all.
    For now.

    Really Frank? You don’t see the difference between consensual sex [albeit with a girl who in the state of New York (and not many other places) is considered underage] who was a prostitute…and rape?
    Damn, I feel bad for your dates.
    Well….you know, I would, hypothetically speaking.

    See dude, we still can’t get past your basic argument flaw… there is no proven — or even charged — rape to compare with Taylor’s “consensual” sex case.
    That’s what happens when you try to sneak your wishful ASSUMPTIONS past us.
    Meaning you lose before you even get started.
    Oh and yeah, most 16-year-old runaways TOTALLY “consent” to have sex with 51-year-old men. They totally can’t wait to do it.
    Wow, dude, I’d hate to be your DAUGHTER.
    You know… hypothetically speaking.

    And finally, let me do an idiot-recap for our friend “AIDS” here:
    Ben’s case = investigated, no basis for any charge found.
    LT = arrested, charged, probable cause found.
    That’s the only comparison you need to know.
    Next.

    Ummmm….not quite. Insufficient evidence to secure a conviction, especially after the victim (yes, victim) was coerced/threatened/bribed/shamed or otherwise enticed/forced into dropping the charges. In fact, it was quite contrary to “No basis for any charge found”.

  74. Frank Burns says: May 7, 2010 3:00 PM

    Ah AIDS, you and your hater buddies STILL with the ol’ “well so what if the authorities who took the testimonies, collected the samples, ran the DNA tests and interviewed all the witnesses found nothing to convict — we STILL know better” argument.
    That’s a winner.

    Speaking of sticking — I just keep comin’ back to your claim there was “consensual sex” between Taylor and that minor. Especially as that minor came to him with her face bashed in from all that other “consensual” sex her pimp had arranged for her. Man, the backwards bending you people will do to get at Roethlisberger.
    Be proud, man, be very proud of yourself.

    Just because the Steelers used steroids to win* their 4 championships in the 70s, used horrible officiating to win* 2 championships in the 2000s, have star players accused of beating and raping women and a fan base who are proud of it doesn’t make ME a bad guy. C’mon.

    tj — just because you’ve got Patriots* fan guilt, don’t take it out on the Greatest Team Ever, or their fans. You always end up looking dumb.
