My own opinion leans toward Dilfer. I think last night would show it's obviously not a crippling distraction but if you believe distractions exist then this is one. It's a story centered around backup quarterback that's been discussed on CNN. The reason the Patriots don't answer even the most generic questions is because Wild Bill wants the focus on football. You can argue the impact that has on the actual game, but the focus in San Francisco is not on football.
I also don't think I'm right about everything. Randy, s Patriots do, made a couple points I wasn't awre of. It made me think. I hope Dilfer did that for people on the other side of the issue. That's what those shows are supposed to be. My whole point with Paul Finebaum was how silly an apology ws when a debate would do so much more. Very liberal people constantly say we need an open dialogue on these issues. What they men is, we need more outlets for their opinions to be heard. And anyone opposing them is hateful, ignorant and should be out of a job. Hope Dilfer doesn't back down. It was a rare 2 minutes I ws entertained by anything outside a game on ESPN.
