Speaking of being a tool, this must all be true:



Belichick rumored to still be harassing the replacement refs

Foxborough, MA
Head coach of the New England Patriots, Bill Belichick is making headlines once again. Except this time it has nothing to do with the New England Patriots, this one is a report of harassment from the replacement referee he assaulted before (and after) a game earlier this year of which he was fined $50,000 from the NFL.

“He just won’t let it go” claims the ref who claims to have seen him standing in the rain outside his bedroom window at 2:00am


Rumors speculate that charges are being filed by the replacement ref. Despite the end of the referee holdout on September 27th, coach Bill is accused of continuing the harassment of the ref from that infamous game.

In the documents the replacement ref insists that Bill constantly prank calls his house every night at midnight, and “just breathes heavily into the phone without saying a word”.  Sometimes he can hear Bon Jovi blaring in the background, which only makes the breathing “sound more like panting”.

When asked about the charges, coach Bill aggressively stared at the reporter who was later escorted into the basement.

“He follows my kids to school and winks at my wife” claims the ref.

One of the oddest Belichick stories comes from, of all places, Cleveland. The people there despise him. When Belichick goes back, it's like a Michael Moore-George W. Bush cocktail party.

Backstory: Before the Patriots did, the Cleveland Browns saw potential in a boy genius who cut his chops as defensive coordinator with the New York Giants. But in Cleveland he sparred with the media and dismantled a veteran team to build for the future, with the blood reaching a boil when Belichick cut beloved quarterback Bernie Kosar. Fans chanted, "Bill must go!" and a canopy was built near the locker room to shield him from beer cups and flying garbage.

By 1995, the dysfunctional four-year marriage was careening toward an unhappy conclusion, as talk swirled that the Browns were leaving town.

Last home game of the season, a dreary winter day on Lake Erie, the Browns beat the Bengals, and John "Big Dawg" Thompson lingered an hour afterward on the 50-yard line -- a groundskeeper let the fan on the field -- because a friend told him when you say goodbye to a true love, you should savor the final moments.

Thompson was the unofficial leader of the "Dawg Pound," a rabid group of Browns fans who probably wouldn't have fit in at Belichick's Nantucket parties. Tipping the scales at almost 500 pounds, he was dressed in a dog collar and orange spray-painted high-tops. Down the field, Belichick, the blankety-blank who Cleveland fans were certain ruined Browns football, suddenly turned, spotted Thompson and ambled over.

He just wanted to say thanks for Thompson's support.

"He knew I was hurting," Thompson says. "He knew how big of a fan I was. For him to come out with his family and thank me ... that was one of the nicest things somebody has done for me."

Belichick asked Thompson what he would do now that the team was probably gone. Keep fighting, Thompson told him.

A few days after that, Belichick was fired. A while later, the phone rang at Thompson's sales-job office.

"It's Bill Belichick," a co-worker said.

"Yeah, right," Thompson said, along with a four-letter word or two.

He said he practically dropped the phone when he heard the voice on the other line: "John, it's me."

The conversation was longer this time, and Belichick opened up. He told Thompson the one mistake he made was fighting with the media. He knew he couldn't win that fight. Too many barrels of ink, he said. "He was saying sayonara, basically," Thompson says.

Belichick went back to being an assistant on Bill Parcells' staff; Thompson lost more than 300 pounds through gastric bypass surgery.

Eventually, when an expansion team assumed the Browns' name and history, Thompson was able to obsess over the Browns again. And during Cleveland's bye week, he watches a man who he thinks is misunderstood.

Belichick did a cameo appearance on the TV show "Rescue Me," playing a random mourner in a funeral scene. Belichick, in a rare moment, made a crack to reporters about wearing makeup.

"Hardest job in football," he said. "Trying to make me look good."


No one disagreed.
