I never said Kraft wasn't a good owner. I just think he can be very cheap with his players, which is what I said. May be if Kraft OCCASIONALLY threw money at free agents than perhaps they would have won a couple of more playoff games in the past six years.

But I don't think the reason the Pats lost the SB in 2007, or in 2011, or the AFCC in 2012 can be attributed to how much money they spent or didn't spend.I mean if Asante Samuel doesn't drop an easy INT and David Tyree doesn't make a ridiculous catch with the ear hole of his helmet the Pats win their 4th SB.If Welker, the guy we're so sorry to lose, doesn't drop a catch he should make in the SB, then they win their 5th SB.And if Welker again doesn't drop an easy catch in the second quarter of the AFCC this year, they have a shot at going up three scores before half time and the game may very well turn out differently.Spending more money doesn't change any of that. And I may be mistaken but I seem to recall reading somewhere that the Pats had something like the 8th highest player payroll in the league last year.

DerekLarsson2 wrote:> "reich-wing snob" ... really? ... bringing Hitler's Germany into this discussion?Oh geez. This has nothing to do with "Hitler".Is simple political satire now beyond your feeble grasp? The term "reich-wing", of course, is a commonly used play on words to mock American right-wing, pro-Wall-Street, pro-Empire, pro-War, pro-Occupation, pro-Police State, austerity policies (which are in fact Fascist in nature and design).Fascism is much broader than Germany. We have it right here in the United States. Fascism = Corporatism (this is literally the definition).But, for the record, the CIA even Tortures human beings, and trains people in it, and then it Jails the whistleblowers). [ Our Founding Fathers wanted our Nation to be a land of freedom -- not some big-brother Surveillance-State, not an Empire perpetually at War around the globe (with 900 military bases in 130 Countries), and not run by crooked Banks & Corporations, for the benefit of global bankers and Corporations ].And the right-wingers, and War-mongers like Robert Kraft happily align with those corrupt policies. --And no, not all Football stadiums have U.S. Army Recruiters setup all the time trying to brainwash our kids, and get them killed in misadventures and foreign occupations overseas. That's the Robert Kraft touch. I agree that The U.S. Army has nothing whatsoever to do with Football here. But Robert Kraft is the one who made the decision to conflate these two things on his own property. That was the whole point here.....
