Default Patriots Charge Jets With Tampering.

The Patriots have filed a complaint with the NFL regarding the dubious negotiating tactics of the Jets.

The Patriots contend they gave Branch permission to discuss only terms of a contract and not what a team would offer the Patriots in trade, according to the Boston Globe and Boston Herald. The papers said New England contends the Jets told Branch what they would offer.

This should add a little spice to the upcoming week2 match up - not that we are short of intrigue with the Jets signing every spare Patriots body and the Jets HC being a part of the BB 'tree of coaching excellence'.

typical bloodsucking tactics. the pats are hoping to score an extra jets draftpick out of the deal, and if nothing else set the groundwork and set of rules for inevitable future negotiations amongst the 2 teams. it will probably come out that the pats were using backhanded methods playing seattle and the jets against eachother.

pretty petty on the patriots part.

Looks like they're desperately trying to grab onto SOMETHING while they sink.

I'm sorry, LITP, but I have to agree here with Tony and klick. It seems like a desperate move on the Pats' part to get the one up on a division rival. In light of the recent story that came out about the Pats/Bills, isn't this a little pot/kettle on their part?

Well, im just reporting the facts - make of them what you will.

Hitting up free agency players for information regarding their ex team isn't illegal, but what the Jets allegedly done must be.

If it can be proved, it just shows that other teams will do what they can to put on over on the best team in the AFCE.

so youre saying you dont know if what the jets allegedly done is illegal or not? report away then.

must be a slow "news" day for you being that this story broke 2-3 days ago. patriots threaten to sue or file grievances against someone every year it seems. just a routine fishing expidition to give their lawyers some work. pretty soon they'll just go the al davis route and start suing the NFL every year.

The Pats-Jets relationship is a blood feud going back to Parcells going to the Jets from the Pats in the mid-1990s and Belichek then turning down the Jets HC job to go with the Pats several years later.

To illustrate the depth of the mutual loathing betwen these owners, the most analogous situation I can cite for Steelers fans is when Al Davis bankrolled George Atkinson's slander suit against Chuck Noll in the mid-1970s (after Atkinson punched Swann in the back of the head and Noll then referred to a "criminal element" being present in the NFL - those were the days, eh?)

The tampering charge may or may not have merit, but if it was someone other than the Jets that spoke with Branch the Pats might have let it slide.

Thats probably true.

Im looking forward to this weeks match up more and more.

I also think alot of the bad blood goes back to Parcells losing focus on the SB vs the Packers and worrying more about his contract with the Jets - what he did was selfish and unforgiveable.

Of course, Boston dont need much of a reason to hate NY anyways.

yes, it goes back to the years and years the patriots were the pissant of the division. even the lowly jets could claim a title.
