Adam Schefter (in the video)  — “œThey were in a meeting the other day with Dean Blandino, the head of the officials, and Bill Belichick got up there, and in profane language, told the NFL: ‘€˜€˜We spend money to send the Pro Bowl to Brazil, we spend money to go overseas to London, but we can’€™€™t spend money to have four cameras in the end zone, four cameras to help determine the correct call in the end zone on certain plays?’ He went off, and the way it was explained to me, from people in the room at the time, they were laughing at it because his language was so profane and because he was so incensed about it, and the NFL didn’€™€™t know how to handle it. … Bill Belichick left these owners’€™€™ meetings not particularly happy.”

Mike Florio on the same incident - Three different sources who were in the room at the time say Belichick did not engage in a profane tirade.  One source said there may have been a single F-bomb uttered by Belichick while sharing his views on the league’€™s reluctance to invest the money necessary to install fixed cameras along the sidelines and goal lines, but the source added, “I’€™ve heard much worse in that room during discussions.”

In times like these, when you’re hearing two completely contradictory reports and you’re not sure which to believe I have a general rule that I follow. And that is, I always believe whichever I story I want to be true. And in this case, Adam Schefter’s version wins in a blowout.

I not only want to think Bill Belichick dressed down the NFL in a rage-fueled, profanity-laced angry screed, I actually do believe it. Because how can he not be enraged at the way he and his franchise are being treated? The powers that be in football have done everything they can to discredit everything Belichick and the Patriots have accomplished. If he didn’t blast them with withering verbal fire, empty the clip and then throw the gun at them then we ought to name him the next Dalai Lama.

His staff figures out a way within the rules to scheme an eligible receiver free and perfectly executes it in a playoff game? The first order of business at the owner’s meetings is to adopt a new rule to ban it.

He leads his team to a blowout win against the Colts in the AFC title game? Blame the air pressure in the footballs, say nothing while it becomes the top news story in the country, then launch a phoney baloney witch hunt that’s lasting longer than the actual Salem witch hunt trials.

Another team’s owner states publicly he’d like to get Belichick’s star cornerback on his team, that team leaks to Schefter that they’re making plans to take a run at that player and then surprise! They get him. File tampering charges against the Pats for their owner saying nothing more than “it would have been nice to keep him but what-are-ya-gonna-do?”

Belichick proposes a simple rule that will benefit no team over any other but will improve the game? Sorry. No sale. Every teenager in America can own a web cam, but we can’t afford it.

So it’s no wonder he’s outraged. On the other hand, maybe he’s just used to it by now.

When they won three Super Bowl‘s in four years, the Colts said it was because the Pats defensive backs were too physical so they changed the rules to make it more Powderpuff-y. Then they blamed the success on videotapes of coaches’ signals. All in an effort to minimize and disparage everything Belichick and the Patriots have accomplished.

And frankly, I couldn’t be happier. When the Spygate story broke, the Pats used it as the Mr. Fusion to power themselves up to 1.21 jigowatts of pure rage and nuclear resentment on the way to a 16-0 season. And all this will do likewise. Sometimes it’s hard for a team to stay motivated in the wake of its own success. But there’s no way that’s happening to the 2015 Patriots. The coach will never allow it after this. And we have the rest of the NFL to thank for it.

AROUND THE WEB:

— Kentucky puts its undefeated record on the line Thursday night when it plays fifth-seeded West Virginia in the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16. According to WVU freshman guard Daxter Miles Jr., the Wildcats’ season won’t be perfect by the end of the night.

“I give them their props,” Miles told reporters Wednesday in Cleveland. “Salute them to getting to 36-0. But [Thursday night] they’re going to be 36-1.”

Added Miles: “I don’t think they’ve played a team like us. To me, they don’t play hard. To me, they don’t play as hard as we play. Nobody is invincible, so their time will come, and I think we’re going to pull it out.”

Although the Kentucky roster is loaded with future NBA players, Miles said West Virginia won’t be the team playing scared.

“They should be more intimidated,” he said. “Because they’re the ones who have the high standard, and we’re coming for them.”

Miles said the Mountaineers’ vaunted press will give Kentucky trouble, and teammates Juwan Staten agreed.

“Why wouldn’t it?” Staten said. “We’ve been playing this way all year, we’ve had success against everybody no matter what style or what type of players they have. That’s the only way we play, and it’s just up to us to make it work.”

Informed about WVU’s comments, Kentucky 7-footer Willie Cauley-Stein said his team now will have more inspiration.

“That’s good. Adds fuel to the fire. Puts a little personal stuff into it,” he said. “When teams talk like that, it puts a different mindset into your head. It’s not just playing to try to win the game anymore.”

Added Kentucky freshman guard Devin Booker: “A lot of teams have said things, but eventually they have to step into the ring. We’ll see how that turns out.”

— Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart is being investigated by Major League Baseball after being accused of tweeting a gambler for betting advice.

After someone posted a couple of direct tweets purportedly from Cosart to a gambler, one saying that Cosart bets “large” and is looking for help, word spread of the accusation.

Cosart, who has run into trouble for his tweeting in the past, deleted his account, then apparently opened a new one and claimed he had been hacked.

The Marlins would only confirm MLB’s involvement, saying in a statement, “Major League Baseball is aware and they are investigating it and we have not further comment at this time.”

It is not illegal for players to gamble, as long as it’s not on baseball.

The 24-year-old Cosart was traded from the Astros to the Marlins in a seven-player trade last July. The right-hander is expected to be in Miami’s starting rotation.

— University of Michigan offensive lineman Jack Miller opened up about his decision to quit the team, acknowledging, “I’d be lying if I said that the concussion thing doesn’t score me a little.”

Miller, who started all of his team’s games last season, said he reported only one concussion, although he believes he had more than that.

“I know I’ve had a few, and it’s nice walking away before things could’ve gotten worse,” he told ESPN. “And yes, multiple schools have reached out. But I’m ready to walk away from it. My health and happiness is more important than a game.”

Miller’s brother, Matt, quit the game after preseason workouts as a freshman at Wisconsin after suffering multiple concussions in high school. With his family history, Miller said he isn’t sure if he would allow a son to play the game.

“Football has taught me so much about life, it’s incredible how much I’ve learned from it.” Miller said. “That’s why my dad ultimately wanted me to play the game at a young age, then we found out I was good. But is it worth the potential injury? Really tough call.”

ON THIS DAY TRIVIA (answer below): On March 26, 1974, the Red Sox released which two future Hall of Famers?

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I had the option — the $20 million option — that they could’€™ve exercised and they didn’€™t. We tried to work on a deal, and the deal, we felt that it wasn’€™t in the ballpark of what we were looking for. We moved on, and they moved on, too. Had a great conversation with Bill [Belichick], and we moved forward just like they did. That’€™s how you look at it.” Darrelle Revis, addressing his decision to leave the Patriots for the Jets as a free agent

STAT OF THE DAY: 5 – Technical fouls called during the Celtics93-86 loss to the Heat on Wednesday

‘NET RESULTS (mobile users, check the website to see the videos): Nuggets guard Ty Lawson breaks the ankles of 76ers defender Isaiah Canaan, then feeds J.J. Hickson for a layup.

Clippers big man DeAndre Jordan posterizes Knicks forward Jason Smith in super slow motion.

Stars forward Jason Spezza toe drags then makes a nice pass to Jamie Benn for a goal against the Flames.

From a soccer game at the Future Champions Gauteng International Tournament in South Africa, the Ferroviario Maputo team from Mozambique celebrates too long after a goal — with the goalie racing past midfield to join his teammates — and the K-Stars from Zambia capitalize, putting the ball into play and scoring on a long shot into an empty net for a 1-1 tie.

TRIVIA ANSWER: Shortstop Luis Aparicio (who retired) and designated hitter Orlando Cepeda (who signed with the Royals for a final season in the majors)

SOOTHING SOUNDS: Steven Tyler was born on this day in 1948.
