Belichick, Tomlinson Make Up
Where Are the Nat'l Media Apologies?
San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson "kind of apologized" for intimating that New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is classless.
You may remember that Tomlinson disgracefully impugned the entire Patriots organization after "some players" mimicked steroid user Shawne Merriman's insulting "Light's Out" celebration in the center of the field after New England against all odds defeated the Chargers, 24-21, in the AFC Divisional Playoffs.
Tomlinson said the Patriots "showed no class, and maybe that comes from the head coach."
It was later reported that only Ellis Hobbs imitated Merriman's mocking undulation -- far from "some players."
Now, three and a half weeks later, Tomlinson seemed reticent. From the wire reports:
"I told [Belichick] that I said some things that maybe I shouldn't have said," Tomlinson said, "and in return, Bill said he didn't even see Hobbs doing it, but after the game, he definitely said something to him about handling the situation better."
Tomlinson said that Belichick joked around with the players, and that "We even joked about the (Patriots-Chargers) game."
The previously classless Belichick, who never publicly uttered an unkind word about Tomlinson or his original comments, acted typically Belichick-ian when asked about the make-up session.
Think they will?
Neither do I.
Who's classless now?
Belichick Briefly Address Ted Johnson Story
From the same wire story:
"I wish Ted well," Belichick said. "I know he's going through some things, and I hope it works out well for him. ... I really don't want to go into the past. I just hope things work out well for Ted. I really do."
Should the national media apologize for raking Belichick over the coals?
