Inspired by the Bruins dumping Dougie Hamilton, we look at four athletes that Boston gave up on too soon.
The show opens up talking about the Bruins going from "re-tooling" to "re-building" very quickly as they traded away Milan Lucic and Dougie Hamilton and drafted 3 guys in the first round that are years away from contributing.

This video was originally posted in May, then taken down, and now it’s back. It’s 13-plus minutes of pure Patriots Porn but it’s entirely cobbled together from NFL clips, which means any minute now Big Brother Goodell’s Fun Police gendarmes will kick YouTube’s door in and demand it come down again. So enjoy it while you can.

(As an aside, sports leagues ridiculous, paranoid guarding of their video copyrights is not only draconian, it’s self-defeating because all clips like this one do are drum up interest in the product. And if you’d like to hear two guys bellyache about this topic, it’s one of the things that grinds Uncle Buck’s gears on this edition of Unsportsmanlike Podcast.)

I’m starting to feel at this point that anyone who allows themselves to count Tom Brady out, question his integrity or cast doubts on his greatness are just vamping so they can end up on future “Tom Brady: G.O.A.T.” fan videos.

Come on, Vince and Bianca Wilfork. It was hard enough saying goodbye back in April. Just when I was ready to move on, look back fondly at the last ten years, wish you well in Houston and embrace the Malcom Brown era in Foxboro, you have to go and do this. Seeing you two do You’re All I Need would make it hard enough to move on. But having Vince do the Mary J. Blige part and Bianca do Method Man makes it damned near impossible.

I wish I could quit you, Vince. But still, well done.

Pierre McGuire joined the show to talk about Doug Hamilton and Milan Lucic being traded, the 3 picks the B's made in the first round, Adam McQuaid, and generally what the front office may be thinking with this approach.
Document

(Jerry Thornton/WEEI.com)

The court document pictured here was sent to me anonymously. It’s a judgement by the Third Judicial District Court of of Madison County, Illinois regarding a lawsuit against the 3M Company in which the court lambastes Exponent, Inc.

Exponent, you’ll recall, is the notoriously disreputable “science” firm that Ted Wells handpicked to help him prove the Patriots were guilty in Deflategate. In the past Exponent has been exposed as a junk science gun for hire that will basically say anything a client wants if the money is right. They’ve claimed at various times that tobacco doesn’t cause cancer, asbestos isn’t bad for workers exposed to it and toxic waste is good for the rainforest. They’ve proven time and again they’ll tell you radioactive nuclear fuel rods will whiten your teeth and freshen your breath if there’s a buck to be made.

Well in this particular case Exponent is involved in, presiding Judge Stephen A. Stobbs has has had just about enough of their monkeyshines. The following are direct quotes from his court order, dated June 2, 2015:

  • “On May 11, this Court granted Plaintiffs’ Motion to Compel Production of Documents contained on Exponent, Inc.’s Privilege Log … within seven (7) days of the Court’s Order. Exponent has failed to comply with this Order and had indicated that it will continue to disregard this Court’s May 11 order.”
  • “[T]he Court cannot allow Exponent to stand in violation of a valid Court Order compelling the production of documents.”
  • “Methodologically sound science has nothing to fear from full and open disclosure.”
  • “[T]he Court finds that Exponent’s refusal to comply with its May 11, 2015 Order is unreasonable and evidence of deliberate disregard for the court’s authority.”

Judge Stobbs then goes on to order Exponent to pay the Plaintiff’s legal fees, produce the documents in question and pay a thousand dollar fine for each day it fails to comply.

That is the scientific firm Ted Wells chose to prove his case against the Patriots. He could have hired AEI or any number of neutral, reputable firms, but after an exhaustive, nationwide search he went all the way to the West Coast to find a company that is so afraid of  “full and open disclosure” that they’ll ignore court orders rather than have their research exposed for the fraud it is.

I mean, the “science” in the Wells Report has long been discredited beyond all recognition. The whole document is a 243-term paper that started with the thesis, “Tom Brady is a lying cheater who paid two Patriots droids to help him cheat then lied about it” and hired Exponent to fudge the numbers. As I’ve said before, he shot an arrow, then had Exponent draw a bull’s eye around it.

And when Wells couldn’t make a convincing case the footballs were deflated, he hung Brady on a charge of “not cooperating” with his witch hunt. Well it doesn’t get any more not cooperative-y than ignoring the legal order of a court. Brady didn’t hand over his text messages to Wells’ satisfaction and Wells vilified him for it. When Brady’s agent fired back, Wells gave a shrill, hysterical press conference to complain about Brady’s lack of cooperation. Yet when the firm he gave all those billable hours to tells a judge to go piss up a rope, he has nothing to say.

This should be the final nail in the Wells Report coffin. Though now that we know Exponent cheated with respect to the psi in the footballs and is guilty of failing to cooperate, I suppose the right thing to do is suspend Brady for four more games and take a couple of more Patriots draft picks away.
