Tim Tebowpalooza gets plenty of play in today’s Boston Herald, from Page One
to the double-barreled columnists here
to this Sports Section piece
to the back page of the feisty local tabloid.
But nowhere is there any mention of this from a Yahoo! Sports piece last month:
[W]hile there’s plenty of media chatter that Tebow could land with the Patriots (whose offensive coordinator, Josh McDaniels, was the man behind the Broncos’ decision to draft Tebow in the first round), my organizational sources tell me that’s very unlikely to happen, with one going so far as to say that Coach Bill Belichick “hates” Tebow as a player.
Belichick waited four weeks to deny that, which seems like mighty convenient timing and sort of undermines the outrage in his statement to ESPN Boston: “[F]or anyone to have represented that is the way I feel about Tim Tebow is completely untrue, baseless and irresponsible. It is unfortunate that something so inaccurate was reported.”
And not repeated in today’s Herald. A Boston Globe report by Shalise Manza Young, however, did make reference to it:
It seemed odd last Thursday that Belichick suddenly decided to dispute a Yahoo! Sports story from nearly a month earlier that cited a Patriots source who said Belichick “hates” Tebow as a player. Belichick told ESPNBoston.com that was “untrue, baseless, and irresponsible” to report that he felt that way about Tebow.
Now it makes a bit more sense.
Again, just not to the Herald.
