    I was listening to "NFL Insider" on 1090 with John Lynch today, and during the interview they made reference to the fact that the Union Tribune, in Saturdays Paper (after the Pats arrived on Friday Night), published the exact time and route that the Super Bowl parade would be should we win it (it would have been at 3pm that following Monday). If this is true, it only furthers my notion that the local newspaper isn't fit for bird droppings.

    I don't know if it's true as I don't subscribe to that paper, but if it is you have to be kidding me!!! This would be on par with the Steelers Super Bowl video that they recorded before we beat them.

    Would someone that gets the local paper please deny or confirm this report? Again, it was supposedly in Saturdays Paper...

    Isn't this the same paper that went with the whole "hidden tickets" inside the papers campaign???

    How'd that work out for them, by the way?

    But yeah, Pats fans were all over it. Never clicked the link 'cause I assumed it was true.

    I'll be honest, I don't blame the Pats for acting like asses one bit after hearing this. The UT can KMA and SMD that fuggin POS paper publishes a story like this with the opposition in town?!?!?!?!?!

    Seriously, this is on par with the Steelers Video. I remember loving that shot on the cover of the UT of Natrone Means waving the terrible towell to the fans.

    This just makes me sick. WTF were they thinking?!?!

    Should email that writer and ask him who's brilliant idea it was to go to print prior to the game.

    has it occured to any of us. But maybe folks at the ut want the chargers out of town. Just a guess but who really runs the ut are politicans from san diego. Thats usually the case.

    They said that they had to plan ahead. So do it behind closed doors and don't talk about it publicly until it happens! A bunch of monkeys could run this city better than our council members!

    I'm sure they're doing fine with their own lives. When are people gonna wake up and realize alot of politicans have only one thing in mind. To improve their own lives not the people they are supposed to represent.

    Its good to have a plan, but you dont have to tell the world the exact second you make it.

    I don't even think the San Francisco Comical would do some **** like this.

    Wow.

    In the Boston papers they're ripping the Pats for acting like idiots after the game. At this point I seriously doubt the UT would do the same.
