John Tomase had an agenda..He knew he didn't have creditable information but it sure made a super headline for him the day before the Super Bowl..Did it cost the Patriots the concentration needed to play in this great game..Absolutely!!The fact he wasn't fired for such flagrant abuse of heresay information says a lot about his employer..It is no wonder the press has such low esteem from the public..Only the haters ate this up..Yhe rest went outside and threw-up..Good reporting Boston Herald..Be proud!!

Tomase might as well pack up and join ESPN where they don't cover real sports. They're like the gossip rags. No highlights, just silly gossip from a bunch of no talent journalists and commentators who know little about the sport they cover. Hence, the place for Tomase. He's hated in New England and will never step inside the Patriots locker room again. The Herald should just face facts. Tomase is done. Stick a fork in him.
