    I had the best time today. I decided to take my family to the Trump Rally. It was so much fun. I left for the Rally around 2 o'clock and got there about 3:45. I parked in the Dollar General which I THOUGHT was close....Haha. Nope had to walk a mile to the end of the line. Once we were in line, it was so much fun being among patriots. It really brought home that we are going to be ok. We were immediately behind 3 Law School young guys from University of Florida and a young Lady who was...
  • More Patriots players refusing to visit the White House; it could change a great tradition forever

    Six Patriots ... will not partake in the tradition. [Snip] In the past, most players avoided controversy by saying their decision was based on other factors, such as a scheduling conflict or family commitments. But with Trump in the White House, that tone seems to be changing. And now that the door to openly challenge the White House is open, more athletes could follow suit, just as some did when Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers took a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality. If declined White House visits become more common, it would be a...

Running back LeGarrette Blount, defensive end Chris Long and defensive tackle Alan Branch on Thursday became the latest to announce that they would skip the visit. Long posted on Twitter that he “planned on skipping” in response to a column in The Daily News that urged him to skip.

I've lived through the heartache of Bill Parcells leaving (and absconding to the Jets with Curtis Martin) to the pains experienced after Drew Bledsoe's tragic (and fateful) injury to living through Pete Carroll. I've experienced the highs of an inexplicable Super Bowl run in Brady's first year as a starter and a nearly perfect season, and...

    Most people thought the Falcons had beaten the Patriots. Including the leading newspaper in Boston. Via Field Yates of ESPN.com, an early edition of the Boston Globe declared victory for the Falcons with a headline that proclaimed: A Bitter End. Appearing under that was a photo of Falcons defensive back Robert Alford returning an interception from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to the end zone for a touchdown that put Atlanta ahead 21-0 in the first half. New England eventually would trail 28-3 in the third quarter. Inevitably a collector’s item, the erroneous conclusion proves the danger of declaring any sporting...

    Tom Brady has had to answer numerous questions about his friendship with President Donald Trump, whom the New England Patriots quarterback has been friends with for a number of years. And that didn’t change a day after Brady led the Patriots to Super Bowl LI. On Monday, Brady discussed his bond with the newly-elected president on his weekly interview with WEEI’s “Kirk and Callahan” show, somewhat understating his relationship with Trump. “I have called him, yes, in the past. Sometimes he calls me. Sometimes I call,” Brady said, via the show’s website. “But, again, that’s been someone I’ve known. I...

Would he join his teammates in their university-approved safe space or would he stand on the sidelines and honor America? Connor chose to stand – alone.

    Tom Brady is suspended (again) for his role in Deflategate, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's guilty of what he's been accused of doing. What it means is that the Roger Goodell believes Brady is guilty and deserves a four-game suspension, and the judges who reinstated that suspension believe Goodell has the proper authority to do so. At least one player doesn't agree with that assessment. According to Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who spoke with Sports Illustrated's Maggie Gray, Goodell has too much power and the league shouldn't be trusted.

    New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady must serve a four-game "Deflategate" suspension imposed by the NFL, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, overturning a lower judge and siding with the league in a battle with the players union. A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled 2-to-1 that Commissioner Roger Goodell did not deprive Brady of "fundamental fairness" with his procedural rulings. The split decision may end the legal debate over the scandal that led to months of football fans arguing over air pressure and the reputation of one of the league's top teams.

    Migrants who commit crimes should lose their right to asylum, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday, toughening her tone as police in Cologne confronted right-wing protesters venting their anger at mass assaults on women on New Year's Eve. Police in the western city fired water canon to disperse protesters from the anti-Islamic PEGIDA movement, which has seized on the alleged involvement of migrants in the New Year attacks and stepped up its calls for a halt to the influx. Nearly two dozen asylum seekers were among those suspected of carrying out the attacks, police said this week, heightening tensions...

    The seizure of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon by armed anti-government extremists has attracted national attention and raised questions about whether the takeover is a powder keg about to blow. But experts who monitor the anti-government movement say an even greater concern is lurking behind the confrontation that erupted Saturday at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in the high desert of eastern Oregon. The militia movement, they say, is in the midst of a massive growth spurt at levels even greater than in the early 1990s after the Waco, Texas, standoff and the siege at Ruby Ridge, Idaho. It...

    BURNS-Law enforcement agencies are remaining mum about plans to end militiamen's occupation of the Malheur Natiomal Wildlife Refuge headquarters. A splinter group of militia in town to support a local ranching family took over the federal office Saturday afternoon in a development that stunned the community and visiting militia. Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward said in a statement late Saturday that " a collective effort from multiple agencies is currently working on a solution."........ Law enforcement response: During Saturday's rally, not a police officer was visible. And so far law enforcement agencies have not approached the refuge or blocked access...

    A group of militiamen on Saturday occupied the headquarters of a national wildlife refuge in Oregon in support of two brothers who are slated to report to prison on Monday on arson charges - and the protesters don't plan on leaving any time soon, saying it's 'kill or be killed' time. Militia members claimed to have as many as 150 supporters with them at the Malheur National Wildlife refuge building in Princeton, which is federal property managed by the US Fish and Wildlife Service that was closed for the holiday weekend. They later rescinded the number and said they would...

    After 12 weeks of the NFL season, the New England Patriots are still the heavy favorite to win the Super Bowl. Using Nate Silver's "2015 NFL Predictions," a model that rates each team and then projects how the regular season and playoffs will play out, we can get a better sense of which teams are the true Super Bowl contenders. Heading into Week 13, the New England Patriots are still the favorite with a 28% chance to win the Super Bowl, down from 33% a week ago. The Carolina Panthers (20%) are the favorite in the NFC. In fact, according...
