Earlier today, Charley Casserly of CBS reported that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and former Patriots receiver Randy Moss went toe-to-toe before Moss was traded out of town, and that they had to be separated.
The confrontation also reportedly included a comment from Brady about Moss’ facial hair and a comment from Moss about Brady’s, um, cranial hair.
Peter King of NBC reports, citing two “very highly-placed sources” within the Patriots organization, that the incident did not occur.
As one source told King, “Someone is lying to CBS.”
Casserly and Patriots coach Bill Belichick have a history. Earlier this year, Casserly reported that Brady played with three broken ribs, and Belichick teed off.
“Who’s been wrong
more than Charley Casserly since he left the Redskins? His percentage is
like a meteorologist,” Belichick said.
“He has no
relationship to this team. I’d say less than zero. Based on what? He’s
never at a practice, never at a game.”
We have a feeling that Belichick will have more to say on the subject the next time he meets with the media.
