Police apprehend Boston man for false alarm at Steelers’ hotel

Getty Images

The Steelers got a 3 a.m. wakeup call courtesy of a false fire alarm at their team hotel in New England, and the authorities were quick to act.

Sal Paolantonio of ESPN reports that Massachusetts State Police have apprehended a 25-year-old Boston man on charges of disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and pulling a false alarm at the Steelers’ hotel.

The false alarm was apparently planned out in advance by Patriots fans wanting to disturb the Steelers: Paolantonio reports that the man pulled the alarm, ran out of the hotel and jumped into a waiting car, fleeing the scene. But police were nonetheless able to catch up to them.

The Steelers were awakened by the alarm but may still be able to get a decent amount of rest before today’s 6:40 p.m. ET kickoff.

  1. Facepalm embarrassing all Pats fans with this amateur hour crap.

    False fire alarm at the very least thousands in fines.

  2. Tomlin set it up so he can cry foul.
    Next he will say his head set went out.
    Big Ben said best owners in the NFL. Maybe they should hire a security company, it happens throughout the league all the time.

  3. The steelers have only faced 2 top tier QB’s this season, Brady and Prescott, and they lost to both. I don’t think the pats need help from a drunk guy piling a prank to beat them, they have ridden the steelers like their little pony for the better part of 2 decades and why would anyone think that would end now?

  4. Unfortunately there are idiots in every city. It happened to the Pats almost every night when they played the Seahawks in the Super Bowl…

  5. Well that wasn’t smart, the team doesn’t even play until 6pm, but what more can you expect from a Bostonian…. patriots fans will somehow blame this on goddell… everyone is at fault but us

  6. If you think waking the Steelers up in the middle of the night is going to give your team an advantage, you are mistaken. The last thing you want to do is piss off a team even more that plays pissed off anyway!

    Great, childish move Pat fan.

  7. Pats fan here – Screw that guy. It’s not nice to wake up all the non-Steelers in the hotel. Also, we don’t need to interrupt their last night of sleep to beat them.

    Besides, we already flew to Pitt to give them the flu!

  8. despite the Patriots being caught cheating, I have some respect for the org. I have no respect for much of the insane and biased NE fan base, although they do get props for going all out. Boston is the city of corruption from the top down to the ballboys.

    Is there an NFL city this hasn’t happened in? Glad they caught the idiots, they should make an example of them.

    Yeah dummy, it happens all the time.
    Ask the Giants when playing in San Francisco

    Nothing worse than the fake holier than thou fans

  10. .
    A hare brained scheme……. When the fire department is responding to a false alarm, they’re unavailable to attend to a real emergency.
    .

  11. New England follows the old Ken Patera motto, “Win if you can, lose if you must, but always cheat.”

  12. Word is the guy was an acquaintance of Brady and is affectionately know as “The Ringer”, but not because of incidents such as this, but only because of his prowess on the field during the mixed softball league season.
    The Pats just can’t help themselves, them claiming they had nothing to do with any of it is not unlike Johnny Football claiming to be booze free…..NOBODY believes anything out of eithers yaps.

  13. The second part of the plan is to deflate all the tires on the team bus that takes the Steelers to the game. This is what you call a foolproof 1-2 punch.

  14. Very uncool and not what the Patriots are about. Not to mention this idiot allocated resources of emergency workers that could have been used for a real emergency situation………

  15. (Coincidentally) The man was rumored to be wearing a Pats hoodie with sleeves cut and mumbled one word responses when questioned by police….

  16. Given how loudly Patriots fans complain about their reputation, you’d expect more fans to show up here and protest this.

    Not blame it on Tomlin.

    Not using it to complain about lost draft picks.

    Not saying “we’re not the only ones that do it”.

    If you guys really were as great of a fanbase as you claim, you’d see everybody stepping up to the plate and calling this act out for what it is.

  17. Reminds me of the pats hotel during the sb and fire alarms pulled twice during the week.

    The police determined it was false within minutes, steelers probably didnt even get out of bed.

  18. It is what has earned the team the Cheetahs…..funny it has permeated the culture up there. It’s a punk move from a punk fan base……I wasn’t the least bit surprised.

  19. Boston is corrupt? Maybe. But my friend, THE NFL league office, and the City of Chicago are the standard bearers for corruption. LOL….haters keep on hating….and playing for 2nd place. Or watching from home. So much hostility…tsk, tsk, tsk.

  20. I suppose we have to take our trolling now because of these idiots in our midst. They are lucky no one got hurt during the evacuation and there was not something that happened where the emergency respose personel were needed. I hope there is jail time, a lifetime ban from Gillette would be good. They should be charged for the emergency response. How about if they have to reimburse the room costs of everyone that had to be evacuated? These guys disrespected both teams and the game of football with that move. The Pats most of all because do these idiots seriously think the Patriots need their stupid BS to help? Sorry Pittsburg.

  21. Jail time for all of them, or at least tattoo a steeler logo on their butts.

    And the rest of you can stop acting like this is only a NE thing. Seriously. A holes are not hard to find in any city or town. For example, I know a lot of nice steeler fans, most in fact, not representative of what goes on here in any way.

    Patriots faced One good qb in Russell Wilson when Brady was starting and lost. When facing Brady they didn’t have Ben. You’re an idiot.

  23. There are several people in this comment stream that really expose themselves as, well, fools. A simple web search will show that this very thing has happened TO the Patriots numerous times over the years.

    Also, a reminder: The NFL controls the headsets on the sidelines. Not New England.

  24. I’m sure the on-field communications for the Steelers has been disabled also. Don’t forget your not allowed to touch their QB or receivers without them having a hissy fit…

  25. Stay classy, Pats fans.

    Pats fans are the main reason why so many people (including me) do not like the team. If the collective fan base wasn’t full of arrogant, uncouth clowns then I gather most would root for the Pats and be appreciative of seeing their run of greatness and how well run and professional that team/organization is.

  26. Bill Belicheat and Krafty call this kid “the awakener” but it’s only because he likes to drink coffee.

  27. The timing of 3 a.m. shows the guy did know what he was doing, except for getting caught of course, with it being the time of deepest sleep,REM, and all that rot.

    For everyone’s peace of mind, burglars and zombies know this too.

  28. Hey, those real Boston Patriots like Samuel Adams were a bunch of tea soaking, midnight lantern riding, law breaking, loud mouth trouble makers. It’s who they still are.

    __________________________________
    Good post……..best one on here. There are idiots everywhere.

  30. More cheating. When will all of this nonsense stop and Kraft and Belicheat be suspended for a year. This was planned by the team not just a couple fans! Sorry Pats fans… Just having some fun.
    BTW is this the best hotel they can find? I have stayed there and it’s not a very nice hotel for an NFL team to stay in!

  31. Pats fans are low. I have a new appreciation for Brady and Belichick though because of their quiet support for another patriot. The 95 Corridor thinks it should rightfully rule the country and they can assemble a large mob in short order to condescend to us about it while we are hundreds of miles away (as if that means anything) but B&B stood up in hostile territory as Patriots for a patriot.

  32. As a Pats fan I wish this did not happen.

    Regardless of how it has happened to the Pats and other teams in the past, the last thing the Pats need is negative headlines.

  33. What an absolute disgrace. These are probably the same kind of idiots that wonder why the whole league hates us.

    Not cool. Huge distraction to both teams. I hope he goes to jail.

  34. Nyhealingpoints, I have little respect for a Giants organization that would defy decades of draft protocol — designed to ensure parity — to steal another team’s number 1 draft pick and franchise QB. The gains from the videotaping in New England are speculative, murky, and complicated. But when you steal another team’s franchise QB, the results are far more egregious

  35. Fines for false alarms are the standard penalty.

    However if there was property damage (say to a vehicle, building, fire alarm system, etc) the fines escalate. Fire departments (municipalities) have also started suing in civil court to recover costs for malicious false alarms.

    If there are serious injuries such as from a vehicle accident during fire department response, or to occupants of the building during evacuation, incarceration is sometimes appropriate.

  36. While I seriously doubt that the team (Patriots) had anything to do with it, it certainly doesn’t look good on Pat’s fans who constantly cry about how they don’t cheat and their “we’re just that good” mantra.

    Then you have guys like realpats fan who’s already trying to blame the opponent.

    Not a good look, guys. You didn’t need to stoop to this level.

  37. I’m a Patriot fan and am glad they caught the guy. Let the teams fight it out on the field fair and square. We don’t need bush league antics. Luckily it’s a late game so hopefully everyone can get rested up fully before the game.

  38. I am guessing Ben also made sure he was seen hobbling out of the hotel, as a double down on the xcuses.

    That is, assuming the woman he “brought” into the room “consenually” was well out of sight.

  39. The game is at 8:30 pm, not am. I think they can get 8 hours of sleep and a nap in without effecting any pregame rituals.

  40. What happened to the good old days of just sending some lookers over?

    From CBS:

    “He was the king and he had a devious way to weaken opponents the night before the game – by sending escorts to their rooms to tire them out. Did it work?

    Absolutely, says Taylor. “You know what they like and what type of women they like and you just call the service. What you got?”

    “Just as long as you can,” says Taylor. “Every time they [opposing players] sit there and tell you, ‘Oh, we gotta get some sleep,’ that’s when the party really starts.”

    He said he knew about this trick because it was done to him before a big game in Houston. “Knock on the door, you open the door, and you got two beautiful women sitting there [saying] ‘We’re for you!’ And I’m like, ‘You’re in the right place,'” Taylor recalls with a laugh.

    When Wallace asks if they succeeded in tiring him out, Taylor says, “They did a pretty good job.”

  41. If you really wanted to screw with the Steelers you would mess with their hand held devices during Tomlin’s pregame speech.

  42. Pat’s fans making excuses to explain this behavior are really pathetic. Has cheating really become that comfortable in your everyday life. Any one who has the pleasure of driving in New England can attest to braking the rules is wikkid pissah as long as you don’t get caught. Sad that such a pretty area is full of Tomlins favor ass-ones.

  43. I feel sorry for people whose priorities in life are such that they would risk going to jail to maybe possibly slightly increase the chance that their favorite team wins a football game.

  44. at the end of the day, the steelers with a healthy offense — killer Bs all healthy — big ben, bell and brown — will be in the game and could very well win.

    taking NE and giving the pts is very risky

  45. Former Steelers Guard, Alan Faneca, said that happened every time they played in New England.

  46. I love how people act as if this doesn’t happen in other cities – of course when it involves the Pats it’s blown out of proportion – part of the price you pay when your team is successful for so long…

  47. 100 bucks says we see Ben walking to the locker room today with a boot on his foot claiming he tripped and injured his 2x unknown fractured ankle while getting out of bed after the alarm went off showing once again, how tough he wants us to believe.

    Brady probably set up the whole thing and then smashed his cell phone!

    —————————————————————
    It’s always funny to see who was duped by the “smashed phone” marketing campaign.

    The NFL already had the 2 team owned phones that were used by the 2 Patriot equipment guys. Which means the NFL already had every text that was sent to or from the “smashed phone” and the 2 equipment guys. That’s how it works… you don’t need both phones.

    As a bonus, Tom Brady voluntarily provided paper phone logs from his private phone. Which means the NFL had 2 sources to read any relevant text messages.

    The NFL then leaked information from Tom Brady’s phone logs to the media. Including a private text about Payton Manning and a private text about Tom Brady being dissatisfied with a swimming pool cover.

    The NFL probably leaked that information so that Tom Brady would not trust the NFL and would never surrender his phone. That way the NFL could subsequently play the “didn’t cooperate” card and dupe even more people. Unless you believe that high priced NFL lawyers are not capable of planning one move ahead.

  49. “My name is Donald O’Donnell MacDonald. I’m from Revere, just off the beach. You’re welcome.”

    I’m sure he was totally sober, too.

  50. Belichick will probably say the alarm was set off as courtesy to the Steelers, just in case there really was a fire. Furthermore, the alarm wasn’t all that loud when compared to the alarms at other hotels. The hateful media is lying about everything. Donald and Bill sure hate the media. I wonder why.

  51. Now it’s funny to read posting by morons who expect people to believe that the actions of a couple of other morons should reflect on an entire city, or team, or fan base.

  52. Call me crazy, but Pittsburgh is going to shock the world today. Everything points to New England dominating this series, but any given Sunday, and this Sunday, I’ve got the Steelers.

  53. Before Super Bowl 49, the fire alarm in the Patriots hotel went off twice in three nights before the game.
    I don’t remember all this fake outrage at that time.

  54. Agh. Embarrassing. Please let the rest of Patriot Nation apologize for this absurdity. Hopefully, the fool will have a much lighter wallet soon and spend some time in the lockup.

    Good luck today, Steeler fans. May the best team win and the game be bereft of injury and referee ineptitude.

    Go Patriots!

  55. The Patriot hotel fire alarms were set off several times in the middle of the night during its last Super Bowl appearance. Yawn… nobody cared.

  56. Don’t worry if the Steelers are tired they can just call Dr Rydze and his trunk full of HGH. Already helped them win two other Super Bowls!

  57. A conference Championship team would never use this bush league stuff as an excuse for not performing well on game day.
    Lets hope the Steelers aren’t the first, given their tendency to make excuses already this week.

    And yes, this kind of stuff has gone one everywhere.

  58. Can’t these multi-billionaires afford a few of their own security guards for the team when travelling – at least for the important games? What if that bozo had been a terrorist or some madman or a protester?

  59. Brady has a nickname for this guy, it’s falsealarmenator because he lost some weight. Has anyone seen Bradys phone?

    ———————————————————–
    It’s a good thing that the equipment guy didn’t make a joke and refer to himself as “terminator” after stepping on a bug. If that had happened then we would have nimrods still believing that Brady was involved in a murder plot.

    The guy had a job for 10 years that involved adding and removing air to get footballs within the NFL mandated PSI range. I don’t believe that shouldn’t preclude the guy from using the word “deflator” for whatever silly reason that he wants to once during the off season.

  61. @dansardo

    The pats only played one elite qb since tom came back, Russell Wilson and they also lost, don’t try to play the steelers haven’t played elite qbs card on us because we can say the same thing to you.

  62. I can never understand what possesses idiots like these guys. You do nobody any favors. You don’t disturb the Steelers enough to cause a blip, and even if you did, do you really want to win that way? You also give them a nice built-in excuse. You make the entire fanbase look like tools, and give the trolls endless ammo and amusement. Thanks for that, idiots.

  63. Big deal. Same thing happened at the Patriots hotel the night before Super Bowl 49. Gronk slept right through it. Also happened to the Panthers last year in Seattle.

  64. Given how loudly Patriots fans complain about their reputation, you’d expect more fans to show up here and protest this.

    Not blame it on Tomlin.

    ========================

    That was exactly my point, it happens in every city and now that they’ve caught an idiot they should make an example of him. Reading is fundamental, too bad comprehension remains optional. As a Pats fan I am as embarrassed by the behavior of clowns like that in the real world as I am by fan boys like you and tylawspick here. A little respect goes a long way son, please at least try to think before clicking submit.

  66. Juvenile fool’s prank could have resulted in an injury to a responder or the absence of equipment and personnel where they were needed. Read a related article on his arrest and discovered the hotel was at the airport in East Boston, odd choice for a team visiting Gillette. Went to college up there and worked in the area for a while. It’s a good 45 minutes even in Sunday traffic from Logan to the stadium. Hard to comprehend why a team wouldn’t fly into Providence instead, there are plenty of closer and easier places to stay between there and the stadium.

    Jan 22, 2017 8:11 AM
    Tom had already texted him to reassure him everything will be fine.

    And then threw away his phone.

  68. What concerns me most about Patriots fans is that there is no pride. I don’t cheat at anything because well, it’s wrong, but I want my legacy to be clean. But in Boston, guess not.

    Read all the comments from the Pats fans above your comment condemning the act.

  70. Let’s all focus on the game now and not on the actions of the New Cheatland Patriots and their desperate fans.

  71. Something happened last year when kc came up for the divisional game. Don’t think it really had a impact on the game. Chiefs always lose in the playoffs, even with uninterrupted sleep. And I’m a fan. The truth hurts.

    Right? The earlier post on this had 6 links to other times this same thing happened including:

    Posted by Josh Alper on January 29, 2015, 9:39 AM EST

    The Patriots’ hotel in Arizona made it through another night without catching on fire, but they still have some issues to work out with alarms telling guests that the building is on fire.

    Kim Jones of NFL Media reports that a false fire alarm went off in the middle of the night at the Patriots’ hotel for the second time in the three nights that they have called it home.
    ——–
    and lets just say the comments on that thread are vastly different than what I just read on this one

    but we are the awful fanbase of course lol

  74. To the Pats’ fans who are embarrassed and appalled by this moron’s act, I highly respect you. To the others, you act just like the Pats’ fans that I encountered at a ballgame! They were crude, obnoxious, and totally ruined the game for others! Those are the “fans” who give you the negative reputation. I hope this idiot is punished to the max!!!!

  75. Hopefully the refs will be understanding. I mean its hard to pull up on those late QB hits when you haven’t had enough sleep.

  76. This has happened numerous times to the Patriots every time they play a playoff game on the road so this is not unique to Patriot fans. There are tons of idiots out there in every NFL city. How else can you explain Trump in the White House??

    ******
    That’s how this site work. Most posters on here are here just to antagonize. It’s the highlight of their day. 99% of them wouldn’t post what they post if real names and locations where used.

  78. Please accept my apology on behalf of all Pats fans…unfortunately, every fan base has a small segment given to inappropriate actions…even you must remember when one of your fans walked onto the field to trip the Ravens kickoff returner headed for a TD…oh wait, I just remembered that was not one of your fans..my bad

  79. You would have to be an extremely ignorant person to think that BB or anyone in the Pats organization had anything to do with it. I hope the adults among us enjoy the game.

  80. I’ve said this before. Real Steelers and Patriots fans do not condone this type of nonsense. They are the 2 best teams in the NFL and they don’t need any help from morons. This won’t affect the Steelers or the game. It will be a great game and the best team will go on to win the Super Bowl. Being a Steelers fan I hope it is my boys. But win or lose we will always be REAL fans of our teams and I will wish the Patriots luck.

    A long time Steelers fan.

  81. Hey Brenda, I have a newsflash for ya. You can go to any stadium in the league, and I’ve been to a lot, and encounter great fans. You can also encounter obnoxious fans to whom the game is 2ndary to being drunk and unruly. EVERYWHERE. To turn this into a ‘this is why people hate Pats fans’ routine is ridiculous.

  82. I truly hope the guy gets 90 days in jail. That would discourage others from this very bad behavior.

  83. Brenda needs to go to an Eagles game, lol. I remember years ago going to an Eagles Chargers game at the Murp. A major fight broke out between opposing fans and there were a ton of arrests. This is what happens when people drink for hours then are stuffed in close quarters and fed more booze.

  84. If the Steelers manage to get past the Patriots and the Packers/Falcons, this guys should be forced to walk down the streets of Pittsburg naked while Tomlin shouts shame at him while holding the Lombardi trophy.

    People take their fandom way too seriously. Pulling a fire alarm, come on. I’d assume he was drunk but people are general stupid (especially when it comes to sports), drunk or not. You wasted a lot of people’s time, especially the first responders who have to go out there.

    The Patriots of all teams, don’t need your help to beat anyone. I’d say their record speaks for themselves. Go to Cleveland hotels and pull alarms or spread disease if you want to be a rube fan. They need the help!

  85. How embarrassing! This guy’s 25 years old which means he was 9 when Brady won his first. He has no comprehension of what it means to be a true pats fan. He’s never had to suffer. And he’s an idiot if he thinks the rest of us fans want this kind of attention after all the other bs we have to listen to.

    He’s what we up here call a loosah!

    Here’s to the Steelers getting the rest they need for a fair fight.

    Go Pats!

  86. Please keep your generalizations of “Bostonians” separate from Patriots fans…you losers should be thanking the city of Boston for beginning the country you live in now!

  87. This happens EVERWHERE, not just by Patriots fans, of course the Patriots will get the most hate for it though. You shouldn’t criticize faults you yourself (or your fan base) are not guilty of!

  88. This has happened in just about every NFL city and happened to the Pats twice in the week leading up to the Super Bowl against the Seahawks. It doesn’t excuse the idiots that did this at the Steelers’ hotel and I’m glad they got caught. But the reality is every fan base has their share of truly ignorant fools.

  89. Time to force Kraft to sell the team.
    Force the Patriots to relocate to Mexico.
    Ban Belichick and Tom Brady from the NFL permanently.
    Take away every Patriots superbowl ring.
    Publicly tar and feather everyone involved in their organization.
    Fines upwards of 1 billion dollars.

  90. Big deal. Same thing happened at the Patriots hotel the night before Super Bowl 49. Gronk slept right through it. Also happened to the Panthers last year in Seattle.
    ____________________________________
    Yeah, it was a big deal. The entire hotel was evacuated.

  91. I can hear Mike Tomlin’s “we weren’t well rested,” excuse when the Patriots blow them out.

  92. You wanna have a bad experience, try a Ravens game. Never been to an Eagles game, but I understand they have an actual court, with a real judge, under the stands. Steelers, Bills, Seahawks fans all very nice. I’ve been to Miami in December a couple of times, but I’ve never met a Dolphins fan.

  93. I guess the Steelers would be the first people ever to have had to go to work after a night of interrupted sleep… Tomlin must be excited that his excuses are all lined up ahead of time.

  94. Man, there’s a lot of perfect fan-bases out there posting on this website.
    I guess we have a long way to go to earn respectability in and among our peer fan bases out there.
    _________ (< —-Insert eyeroll Here)

    They are SO perfect! How do they do it?!?

    Read below to learn exactly how much you incessant sanctimonious soap box preaching matters to us:

  95. What an impact. The game is at 6:40 and Steelers fan are already whining. Roid rage? You guys are so great at making excuses now you have yours handed to you so you don’t have to tax your brain trying to make one up. Funny how it happened to the Patriot’s prior to the Super Bowl but you heard no whining! Keep living in your glass houses!

    ====================================
    The issue for that game was, that after announcing that the league was going to inspect all the game balls for proper psi, the officials left the game balls and their testing gear at the hotel. A State police cruiser was dispatched to bring it all to the stadium.

  98. You can also encounter obnoxious fans to whom the game is 2ndary to being drunk and unruly. EVERYWHERE. To turn this into a ‘this is why people hate Pats fans’ routine is ridiculous.

    It’s not ridiculous at all. The reaction to it by Pat’s fans is why you are hated. Everything is a joke to you guys except when it involves a perceived or imagined slight to your team. You are the fan base with thin skin and a lot of trash talking…..the humor is disrespectful and childish, but you are what you are…..hated.

    I’m not going to watch tomorrow. This win at all costs org has ruined the playoffs

    ——————————

    Sounds like you have already assumed they will win. Your comments give that away.

    But ironically the fire alarm nincompoop apparently is worried they could loose, his actions give that away.

    So we have Sterlers fan thinking the Pats will win and a Pats fan worried the Steelers will win. Dogs and cats sleeping together, mass hysteria.

    They probably also had a “Free Hernandez” bumper sticker.

    —————-

    There is NOBODY in New England that wants to see him loose again. We know all too well that dude would shoot anyone. You would have to live here to understand the shock it was to find there was a guy like that in our midst, and it was even more horrifying for the team. There is no one here on his side. I know every city has guys that bad, Im sure we have more even. But to get ones face rubbed in it like that is still scary as hell.

  101. If the Steelers had won more games, they wouldn’t be staying in a hotel in New England. Suck it up, Buttercups.

  102. Droolboy, I don’t care if Pats fans are hated. I laugh at it. Just like people laugh at you. It comes from the fact that the team you root for can’t win on the field. They won’t tonight either. Remember that prediction. I look forward to all the dissappearing fans and changed user names tomorrow.

    any doubt how America feels about the Cheetahs?
    ++++++++++++++

    200+ comments on this thread alone.
    60 on the thread for it happening twice to New England at the SB. There is certainly no doubt how far the Pats are into all the febrile little minds out there

  105. Click on my name trolls. Did the Patriot’s ever have their team doctor arrested by the feds for distributing PED’? The Steeler’s team doctor was! Just think how much you would cry about that if the Patriot’s doctor was??? It’s sad how jealousy makes adults act like children!

    We already are. In case you didn’t notice pretty much every Patriots fan has denounced this idiot even though this happens to the Patriots in visiting citites all the time – but you never read about it

    Tomlin has already prepared his team with ample excuses to lose – they don’t need any more – but you can be sure we’ll hear ALL about THIS if they DO lose!

    $100 says it’s some mid-20’s gold chain & track suit wearing loser who still lives at home. I’m sure he will be a legend at the Pub tomorrow where he spends half his part-time job paycheck.

    —————————–

    If he does that rest assured he will get a nasty thumping. Everyone in NE is ticked off at this clown and in the Eastie pubs those guys do not screw around when they are displeased with someone.

    Does this mean our SB victory will be tainted?

    ————————-

    They were going to say that anyways. They just hadnt figured out their excuse yet. They should be happy this yutz gave it to them so nicely.

    Big deal. Same thing happened at the Patriots hotel the night before Super Bowl 49. Gronk slept right through it. Also happened to the Panthers last year in Seattle.
    ____________________________________
    Yeah, it was a big deal. The entire hotel was evacuated.

    ==============================

    Big fat lie. The news report specifically says that the Steelers players were *not* evacuated.

  110. Bush league crap by a fan who isn’t helping his team.

    The same thing happened twice at the Pats hotel in the week before Super Bowl 49. Would be nice if hotels had better security.

  111. I’m very surprised this story isn’t getting more attention from our beloved Commissioner Roger Dumbell.

    Clearly this person acted on behalf of Brady. I’m sure Dumbell will request Brady’s cell phone to see if he had any contact with this guy, and perhaps check bank records to see if a money transfer was made.

    Or better still, how about just suspend Tom for the Superbowl simply because you can and you think he was involved.

    Can’t wait to watch Dumbell hand the Lombardi over to Tom !!

    Just like the ball boys that deflated the balls, the will make an EXAMPLE of the little guy.
    ===================
    The same ones that denied deflating the balls?

    Biggest compliment y’all could give Pats fans.

    You be hatin’ – we be lovin’ it.

    Keep it comin’

  114. Gonna be a lot of backside throbbing from a lot fo posters here if the Pats win in 2 weeks. All these cheating comments coming back at ya 1000 fold if they pull it off.

  115. The steelers have only faced 2 top tier QB’s this season, Brady and Prescott, and they lost to both. I don’t think the pats need help from a drunk guy piling a prank to beat them, they have ridden the steelers like their little pony for the better part of 2 decades and why would anyone think that would end now?

    lol @ Prescott being “top tier”.
