Bill Belichick blows off breakfast

Since every coach is in attendance at the owners meetings, the NFL asks that they meet with the media for an hour over breakfast.

On Tuesday morning, 31 of 32 coaches showed up.   Patriots coach Bill Belichick did not.  Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe passes along this amusing story.

“Told at just after 8a, BB [Bill Belichick] walked past ballroom where coaches’ breakfast was being held, peeked in and kept on walking.”

(There is no truth to the rumor he gave reporters the Bud Adams salute or sang Cee Lo’s big hit on the way by.)

Belichick, who spoke with the media shortly on Monday, has skipped the breakfast occasionally in the past.  Belichick will not be fined: The league asks coaches to show up for the interviews, but does not require them to be there.
