This won’t be a big deal on the field, but this report has to make you interested as a Bills fan.
Bob Hohler of the Boston Globes reports Alex Guerrero, Tom Brady’s personal trainer is being cut back on his access to the team by head coach Bill Belichick.
In the report, found here: Hohler wrote:
“For reasons he has declined to explain, Belichick weeks ago stripped Guerrero of his special team privileges, restoring a measure of tradition to the team’s medical and training operation, according to several people familiar with the Patriots’ internal operations. … Guerrero is now banned from boarding Patriots jets. His sideline access has been revoked. And he no longer is permitted to treat players other than Brady in his exclusive office at Gillette Stadium.”
Brady years ago lobbied to have Guerrero have a office near the team’s locker room and also to be on the team plane and access on the sideline during games. Patriot players work with Guerrero at the TB12 facility, that’s Belichick approved.
Now Guerrero can only work with Brady.
“The development has created some friction in Foxborough, where Belichick and Brady have collaborated over 18 years to help create the first great football dynasty of the 21st century, sources said. But the coach and quarterback, in keeping with their tradition, have refused to publicly address a potentially distracting topic, in this case Guerrero’s diminished status.”
This, to me at least, is very interesting. I always refer back to what Sal Cappaccio said last week on WGR. He said the ending of Tom Brady in New England will be ugly.
Is this the start? I know it won’t effect them on the field, they’re way too smart and good to let that hinder them.
Have to start somewhere..
