Listen: Patriots, Bengals, New England Patriots discussed on Cincy Jungle
"Once What's going on with the with the Patriots and the do your job crew Allegedly out there filming the bengals sideline. Yeah and think it's important for people who are listening to this and can you understand a couple of things about my background. I worked for the Patriots. This is my seventh season calling the play by play with hired by the flagship station. WBZ The F. M.. Ninety five the sports hub in Boston and for my first season worked for ninety five sports up in eight five sports men in your two for me and ever since I've worked for the patriots as well a part time basis contributing to their website and some of the shows Four crafts sports production. The Patriots have the kraft family has a a business model in which they have a soccer team and football team As sports properties and then have crafts force productions actions that generates a lot of content For both of those teams and we're talking to patriots here and it's not only content on the web and social media but also also television there. I host a weekly television roundtable show with two former patriots players. There's another show that airs CDs affiliate but it's pretty spycraft sports productions Also crafts productions produces the Patriots preseason games and this is the second season of the Patriots of WanNa had a series called. Do Your job and it's not. There's nothing alleged about what they were doing. In terms of the your job documentaries they put together. They were out. This is a crew. That was Filming episode the three season to The life of an advance scout of the Patriots it follows last year's episodes which included a profile of a longtime personnel assistance for the Patriots. Nancy Meyers and what she does. On a daily basis It also follows follows piece last year on the college scouting department with Monte Harrison Ford in his college scouts and how they go about you know what they do and I think that may have included a visit to a pro day or campus visit. Assert that they they. They put a lot of time and effort into More recently there was a feature on The equipment staff for the Patriots and the training staff. I think it was the the last Vignette was put together. These run on their archived on the website. Anybody can see them. And I have a personal relationship with the people that work for cross sports sports productions and my understanding of the situation is essentially. What's been reported by and large that the crew was sent out to Cleveland The the browns. Pr Staff Credential They were there to interview and Get some video of one of the Patriots. Fan Scouts advancing the bengals and in the Cincinnati. In the Cleveland press box the crew was set up and one of the Bengals PR. Staffers someone from the Bengals is people by now. No saw the weather was has been described as a monitor Yeah I don't know if it was the viewfinder you find her camera for was actually a larger monitor. Yes all that. The cameras fixed on on the field on the sidelines as reported by By a number of others the Patriots issued a statement essentially saying that they were in the wrong I think they they try to make it clear they follow it. They apologized for it that there was an error that occurred occurred unknowingly by an independent contractor photographer videographer. There was a producer. There who who was he was a fulltime boy of sports and our football operations was not responsible and belted is very adamant about that again on Wednesday and his and his press conference but they haven't passed that people people know that and and whenever there is an an alleged impropriety or in this case there was an era on immediately sound. The Patriots tweets In their statement address that and I think we're we're open about it Naturally the tape the Patriots are going to have to the deal with their past being revisited. And that's just a and I can't can't blame the Bengals I understand. Why they they were not alerted alerted to the fact that there was going to be a video crew there that would be shooting video in the press box Also right now I think we just we we wait to see what what what the NFL does how proceeds I think You know there's a lot of content that they shot and reportedly the there's about eight minutes video that Is is in question. Right now But like I said I have a personal relationship. I work with transports. A Lot I I I know some people that are very much involved and I feel extremely extremely confident and I don't think that I don't believe i. I feel confident. There was nothing nefarious. There's no skulduggery here. It was an innocent honest mistake. I and it wasn't done to gain competitive advantage over the bengals on there for. I do believe that knowing the people that were involved. You know I I call it the the this spy gate sequel and you gotTa think that they'd be smarter than to do something so similar to that to that tape there. There's no but there is no excusing The lack of awareness or lack of knowledge. You can't you can't you. Video the field from from the press box. And that's something that they're dealing with and I think they've admitted that as an organization for sure and with with regard to like I said Peop- people are well aware patriots past there are coincidences And I think the you know you come back to if they're going to do anything if anybody can do anything like that. The last thing that you do is is is so visible Zabol in the press box and I again I just knowing some of the people that are involved in I think you know I feel very confident that You know what the Patriots the State of the Patriots put out one hundred percent true I don't know what's on that video you know we'll we'll have to wait and see what the NFL goals and and that will tell us more and there may be stuff on that video that y'all People look at and say Outside of New England and the There's definitely something there there and there may be something on that video that We all look at and say there's nothing there Approach and and and you know we'll wait and see what happens. Yeah and You know I don't think yeah we didn't get the we didn't get to hear Abella check You Know Mona Lisa. Vito kind of response. Unfortunately but I never more relatable relatable than when he's forced to answer questions that have nothing to do with football. How annoyed he is that he has to deal with it I think all of us can appreciate That I think I think everybody's been the situation relaxed. You know whatever whatever you do for a living We Reid is forced to deal with stuff. And you're like this is not my job. Why am I talking about this so yeah I think it's important to the other thing I the one last thing about? What is the bill and bill's articulated that This not only this week but many many times in the past whenever the name Paul Brown has come up whenever the Patriots agents who played the Bengals of there's been some reason to comment on the bengals and the Brown Family General Bill idolized Paul Brown and Bill has tremendous are these teams one of his role models. US and I know that Bill Father Felt the same way about. Paul Brown Built Godfather Coached or played under Paul Brown And Yeah he has tremendous respect for Mike Brown and the Brown family. And I think that that's something that You know I only considered all all week long and and reiterated interested again today. I know there's a great relationship there which doesn't currently exist necessarily with a lot of other owners and people are on the NFL and Mike Brown So I think they also to consider as well. Yeah definitely and then I can You know Being transplant transplant. Living in doing the myself that I've noticed a lot in a lot of New England media picked up on on that It's something that I'm sure. It doesn't get the national attention than it gets around here and You know probably something that I need to write about on Cincy jungled to thank. Thanks no about a little bit at some point but Do that in the off season and things slow down but Yeah I think The browns her old families and I think overall I think Certainly Paul Brown the methods that he he taught really But you know and you see Bella check he. He likes the he likes the giants. He likes the Bengals you know he he likes the the old family owned teams Seems exhibiting preference for those so yeah no question about it. He's a great reverence for you know the the traditional football family when organizations the giants The steelers and the bengals slash browns with with Paul Brown and that tremendous lineage. It's tremendous history rather In in the NFL. That's all right.
