All that talk of providing the N.E. lockerroom material is B.S.
My point is "saying it out loud" (aka "keeping it real") is for punks - I agree Ben, Foote and Starks have no doubt about their team but they did not make snarky comments to make their point.
Some folks like braying jackasses and others do not - to each his own
