who says confusing submission? get a grip on reality
2006-01-30 11:01:39 PM  

WTF are you smoking?

2) by a backup: That's Doug Flutie and you don't talk bad about Doug Flutie. He's the sports equivalent of Chuck Norris. He'll kill you with roundhouse dropkicks for an extra point while chugging unicorn blood, doug flutie will.

Bob Ondeeznuts: That's Doug Flutie and you don't talk bad about Doug Flutie.

He's not done bad for a midget from the CFL who threw a lucky pass in 1984 while America was eating turkey.

That guy and his lawyer are either 1)high 2)really dumb or 3)have big balls. I'm gonna go with a combination of 1 and 2.
2006-01-31 01:18:09 AM  
Hey, I'm not sure I blame him...if someone would pay more than a million for home runs hit by steroid-addled freaks, why the hell shouldn't he test the waters.
The worst they can do is say no.
2006-01-31 01:19:28 AM  
Submitter can't/doesn't read. B) That's a guarantee of 8 season tickets that the holder of the ball will pay for, not the Patriots as you make it sound.
2006-01-31 01:20:16 AM  
I predict this football will soon have the words, "Golden Palace" emblazoned across it.
2006-01-31 01:20:59 AM  
The Patriots should send Chuck Norris in on a seek and destroy mission.
2006-01-31 01:21:10 AM  
I hope the guy is out at least a couple hundred bucks for getting his lawyer involved.
2006-01-31 01:21:19 AM  
He didn't ask for Tom Brady to tuck him in at night?

Chuck Norris sent a threatening legal leter to a friend of mine. Chuck Norris is a punk.
2006-01-31 01:21:57 AM  
He's not asking for freebie season tickets, just that 8 tickets be made available for him to purchase.

richlip, ever bought a used car? Ever sold a used car? Ever try to get a client a plea bargain?

Negotiations tip: for your initial bid, you're expected to go way above (or below if you're buying) their reservation point. If you don't, and put up what seems to be a fair deal, you're either going to have to sit there unmoving and look like a jackass during negotiations, which never helps, or deal down to a price below what you want.
2006-01-31 01:22:10 AM  
The guy is an a**hole for making these demands and a grade A pussy for getting a lawyer to make them.
2006-01-31 01:22:25 AM  
It didn't seem too unreasonable. The guy even says that he will pay for the season tickets, he just wants them guarantied by the team...

okay, maybe he should forget about the hundred grand and just go for the seats and the jersey...
2006-01-31 01:22:47 AM  
I hope someone steals that guy's ball.

And puts it where all good balls should be placed:

Inside a ballerina.

I liked Flutie when he was playing for the Chargers, but not the "Flutie Flakes" who became instant fans and thought he could do no wrong once he joined the team.
2006-01-31 01:24:03 AM  

But not when the media is involved, when the media is watching everything, it's time to get humble and give the ball back at a press conference. Then the Patriots will be in hot water for not giving the poor guy anything for being a sport.

If you tilt your head to the right, the "2)8" in the headline likes like someone who's sad to have an erection.

2006-01-31 01:27:12 AM  
How about we compromise and say that this guy and his lawyer are options 1 and 3, high and have big balls?
2006-01-31 01:27:25 AM  
I wonder if he has to remain anonymous. I don't think the NFL lets fans take balls out of the stadium (that's what the nets are for).

Theoretically, he could be charged with theft, for taking something that wasn't his. Just because it flew right to him doesn't mean he owns it.

Just Ignorant: "He's not done bad for a midget from the CFL who threw a lucky pass in 1984 while America was eating turkey."

As a football fan in Canada that saw live every down he played in Calgary, let me tell you this: He's easily the most jaw-droppingly creative quarterback you never had an opportunity to see play in his prime. It's a shame, really.

666 or 999 Are you joking or serious? I can't tell. Assuming that you are serious, why would this guy want to shame his own team? He wants season tickets and a jersey, for God's sake. Is this the request of someone out to get the Patriots "in hot water?"

I Guarantee that the $100k is just there so that the next offer the Patriots make, instead of just being 2 season tickets and an autographed jersey, is 8 season ticked and the jersey. He won't get cash for the ball, and he probably isn't expecting to.
2006-01-31 01:30:34 AM  
it seems like a fair deal to me. it's only a hundred grand. plus, the fan is just going to turn aruond and give the money right back to the team by paying for the season's tickets, so basically the pats would be getting the ball for the cost of the signed jersey ($80-90??)
2006-01-31 01:31:13 AM  
but they didnt put the net up cause it was a drop kick. And you can buy footballs in the stadium i suspect. Wow, its a trick. Every farker out there start sending the patriots telling you have there football.
2006-01-31 01:32:59 AM  
Dear patriots,

I have said football. The other is a fake. My offer is much more reasonable at only $75k and I don't need a stupid jersey or season tickets.

unyon: He's easily the most jaw-droppingly creative quarterback you never had an opportunity to see play in his prime. It's a shame, really.

Hey, no slam on Doug Flutie.

Man, he reminds me of my childhood. Anyone who still is mentioned as an NFL player that makes me think of Intellivision, is OK with me.

Chuck Norris doesn't send threatening letters. Threatening letters run away from Chuck Norris in an attempt to warn Chuck Norris' next potential victims.
2006-01-31 01:36:39 AM  
I work for the lawyers who represent this guy and I can tell you that none of you know what you are talking about.
2006-01-31 01:37:56 AM  
I have season tix in section 143, and I'll be mighty pissed if this guy gets 8 tix better than mine. When they switched to the new stadium, the bumped me up THIRTY ONE rows, from row *two* to thirty-three. Needless to say, I wasn't happy about it. We've had tickets for 20 years now, and didn't feel it was right of them to do so. I hope the Patriots ignore this guy 100%.

/there's 50 or 60,000 people on the season ticket waiting list
//also rhe most expensive in the league =\

2006-01-31 01:41:28 AM  
Not to sound like I'm getting behind this guy or anything, but maybe he's a little quicker than we all thought. What if he's just naming this outrageous price so that when the Patriots balk and offer him a smaller settlement he'll take the money and run just like he planned all along...oh, wait. He's a Patriots fan.

2006-01-31 01:50:03 AM  
-That's very generous saying he'll pay for the season tickets; at the same time he's asking for $100,000. How big of him...
2006-01-31 01:50:48 AM  
it was the first dropkick in well over 40 years and also Fluties last play in the NFL. i bet he'll get close to what he wants for the ball, if not everything. people often forget about that tiny percent of the population who have entirely too much money.
2006-01-31 01:57:43 AM  
You'll get nothing and like it!
2006-01-31 01:58:32 AM  
I work for the Patriots.

So I am really getting a kick really .

Some of you guys are very good at making it sound like you know what you are talking about.

But trust me.... You don't.

I think you just want to make yourself sound smart, when in reality you dont know what you are talking about.

This is how bad info gets passed around.

If you dont know about the topic....Dont make yourself sound like you do.

Cuz some farkers beleive anything they hear.
2006-01-31 02:00:00 AM  
Damn straight Get Real...I have a Boston College jersey signed by Flutie along with a signed "Flutie Heisman" poster....nyah, nyah, almost as good as that damn ball. I may live in Milwaukee, but Boston is where my heart is.

"He's not done bad for a midget from the CFL who threw a lucky pass in 1984 while America was eating turkey."

You really are just ignorant. Doug Flutie is listed at 5ft10inches. That puts him above the height of the average American male.

This is what CRACK does to your brains.
2006-01-31 02:05:06 AM  
Mr. Kraft has paid more for less, however, this dude has A LOT less than he thinks....try selling Flutie's shaved off mullet from '84...that would fetch real loot-ski
2006-01-31 02:11:32 AM  
It might not be that unreasonable, considering it's historic value.

Weren't the Sammy Sosa, and Mark Mcgwire record breaking home run balls valued about the same, if not more?

They have to aim high, just like Flutie himself.
