Of Course The Patriots Misrepresent Players Injuries? You Know Why? Because They Are the Patriots and They Think they Are Above The Law.

Two former Patriots say the team put false information about them on official injury reports.

Brandon Spikes and Aqib Talib have both said since leaving New England in free agency that when they were on the Patriots last year, the team gave them injury designations that weren’t accurate. Spikes ended last season on injured reserve with a knee injury, and there were reports that Patriots coach Bill Belichick actually put Spikes on IR because Spikes had shown up late to practice. Spikes seemed to confirm that in an interview on WGR in Buffalo.

“I heard they put me on IR and stuff like that. That was just a false report,” Spikes said, via “That’s just how things go there. Almost like what happened with Talib and his hip.”

Talib was on injury reports last season with hip injuries, but after signing with the Broncos he said he never had a hip injury.

“The Patriots have their way of reporting stuff, but I haven’t had a hip problem since Tampa,” Talib said. “The injury I had was actually a quad injury. It was reported as a hip injury, but that’s how they do things.” PFT

Just another example of the Patriots trying to kick a former player in the ass when they leave. It's genius to be honest. Talk so much shit about you players that other teams are scared off from signing him. Just Belicheat being Belicheat.

The funny thing is, everyone knows it. I think Brady has been questionable since he was drafted. The funny thing is they found a loop hole that can't be questioned. Good for them. Now get a WR.

"I think Brady has been questionable since he was drafted."

What do you mean by that?

Also Toucher and Rich had someone on today who played for the Eagles (maybe?) a few years ago. When asked about this he said it is not unheard of. He hurt his shoulder and they listed it as an ankle injury. Other places they did it properly. He didn't like the practice but was not surprised in the least, it is a common practice around the NFL

This happens with many teams. Nice try, though, DP. At least Belichick has never tried to break up a kick return.

At least my coach succeeded at that! Well I guess your coach successfully cheated and won 3 Superbowls.

And not once did I say this is wrong, I just said, this shouldn't surprise anyone and called it a genius move.
