So both sides just retold their version of events from back in 2005?

Old news is best news!

Says a lot when Putin's spokesman issues a denial, instead of Putin just giving the damn ring back. He can afford tiny giraffes, for heaven's sake, It's not like Putin can't get another ugly diamond-encrusted ring.

Kraft will get it back after it's been dipped in polonium.

It's not like Kraft can't afford to get another ugly diamond-encrusted ring either.

I liked that "the engraving made it special" like it's impossible to have another one engraved.

Not with the salary cap, he can't!

The Patriots should sign Mark Sanchez to retrieve Kraft's ring.
Sanchez could then go to Putin's palace and overthrow him.

/ Shamelessly stolen from the ESPN comments section

I don't know, he hasn't been able to get another one since they got caught videotaping...

/am I doing it right?

Except that's not the point. Putin basically stole someone else's stuff, it wasn't given to him. I would think Putin wouldn't want to be known as a thief, but what do I know. Does he even understand football that well?

and the Patriots haven't won a SB Since... interesting?

Do you even understand Russia that well? Here's how it works - every time Kraft tell the story he's dismayed. Every time Putin tells the story and shows the ring he's getting a big laugh. Protip: Don't act like a big shot with the President of Russia.

Odd story. It makes Putin sound like a real ass, like he must go around stealing things randomly without even knowing it, assuming anything within his reach is his property. I was trying to imagine it from his perspective. Maybe wherever he goes, people are always handing out gifts to him. Just imagine the president of the United States going over to some country like Brazil, and a soccer player pulls out a ring and hands it to the president. He might think, well of course he's giving it to me, why else would anyone pull out a ring and hand it to me?

Like when that Iraqui dude tried to give Dubya his shoe.

My favorite part of this weirdness is Putin saying "I can kill someone with this ring."  Then leaving with it.  Presumably to go kill someone.

 It is very customary in Russia to shower your host with gifts.  Repeatedly.  Not try to Big Time their President by showing off your tacky crap.

In other countries pro-sports players aren't given poncey rings as trophies.

He already placed it around the neck of his tiny giraffe.  The only way to get it off is to cut off the giraffe's head, and he loves his little pet too much to do that.

So the guy presents the ring in a gift box to a foreign leader and doesn't expect it to be seen as a gift?

WTF.

Kraft: Hey Putin, check out my hardware, bet you would like one if you could get one, huh?
Putin: I already have one...
 
2013-06-16 05:53:27 PM  
Kraft is coming off looking like an Indian-giver.

/Goodell said I could use that term, as it's a unifying force that stands for strength, courage, pride and respect.

He took it off his finger and showed it to Putin.

Belichick stole it for Kraft, so it is karmic justice someone stole it from him.
