New England Patriots Slam New York Times Over Photo On Twitter

There has been so much debate since the New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl, and it hasn’t been about football. Instead, the debate has been on who will attend or not attend President Donald Trumps event where he invites the team to commemorate their Super Bowl win like every other President has in past.

A good chunk of reporters have reported the lack of representation that the Patriots seemed to have on the Wednesday visit. One newspaper decided to amp up the ante with their clear agenda driven Twitter post.

The paper that decided to go at the attendance was the New York Times who posted two photos on Twitter — one from the 2015 visit, and one from Wednesday.

It’s a big difference, as in 2015 people stretched up and down the stairs, whereas the photo from Wednesday didn’t have that. At first glance, it appears the 2015 visit had a lot more people in attendance, but the photos lack facts.

The Patriots decided to do actual reporting and decided to respond on Wednesday night via Twitter. The official team account responded to the Times’ tweet by writing: These photos lack context. Facts: In 2015, over 40 football staff were on the stairs. In 2017, they were seated on the South Lawn.

Here is the original New York Times tweet, followed by the Patriots’ response.

The New York Times then decided to respond to this tweet, to be frank the Patriots shouldn’t have been the ones telling the facts, that was a job of the reporter at the Times.

So then in response, the Patriots decided to show the comparison of the first time they won two Super Bowls in three years.

Want to know what I say about all of this? Who the hell cares, they won the Super Bowl and that is all that matters, everything else is irrelevant.

Celtics Talk: Jordan Mickey Signs With Heat

It wasn’t announced today that Celtic’s Forward Jordan Mickey signed with the Miami Heat on a 1.5 million-dollar contract. Mickey was drafted last season by the Celtics.

Mickey was drafted last season by the Celtics. He was then later sent to the G League where he averaged 20 points pers games and 8 rebounds per game.

With the Celtic’s he only averaged 1.5 points per game. The Celtics now have Mickey gone, so they can focus on what needs to be done this season.

Mayweather VS McGregor-Brawler or Boxer?

 

Almost two weeks from now the fight everyone is waiting for will be decided. Taking a closer look at Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, we can almost decide now for ourselves.  But let’s humor ourselves and look at the tale of the tape and you can comment below on who you predict to win.

Defense– Advantage Mayweather.

When he retired in 2015, Mayweather owned a boxing-best plus -24.5 plus/minus rating per CompuBox. He landed 43.4 percent of his punches. His opponents landed only 18.9 percentage to Fight Metric, McGregor has defended only 57 percent of strikes during his UFC career, worst of any current male champ

Endurance- Advantage Mayweather

In 49 fights, Mayweather has only 26 knockouts. He has made it look easy-going through 12 rounds in his last 7 fights. Every bout but one has been set for the championship distance.

Mcgregor has finished half his bouts inside the opening round. He has only fought past the third round once.

Durability- Even

Mayweather has only been knocked down once. McGregor, well, he has a beard don’t he?

Speed- Mayweather

Mayweather has always been known for his quickness of hands and feet. Even at age 40 in his final fight; his speed and reflexes were on spot.

McGregor isn’t so quick. His speed his by deception. He is fast because he knows his opponents next move and gets in their head.

Power– McGregor

Yes McGregor. The KO power of his left hand has made him millions with 85 percent of his wins coming from knockouts.

Mayweather’s KO rating is only a 53 percent. Power his not his game and his last knockout came in 2011.

Experience- Mayweather

He has seen it all. Bronze medal in 1996 Olympics. He has faced almost every big name of  his time and done so in the most crucible of the sport’s biggest stage.

McGregor has roots in Ireland’s Crumlin Boxing Club. He has always felt comfortable in the pocket, but now, he is fighting under different rules.

Does Conor McGregor have what it takes to go the distance against one of the best boxer’s ever? Can Floyd Mayweather survive the McGregor’s powerful left hand and avoid an early knockout.  If the bout goes past the few rounds, I would put my money on Mayweather for sure, but then again, have you ever seen an Irishman fight? It is going to be one heck of a fight that I think both fighters are going to know once and for all what they are really made of.
