skinink: 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?

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.

SoundOfOneHandWanking: 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?

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

/Reading is fundamental.

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.

justoneznot: 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?

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

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

Your Average Witty Fark User: It's not like Kraft can't afford to get another ugly diamond-encrusted ring either.

Not with the salary cap, he can't!

skinink: 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.

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

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