Bill Belichick has a reputation for being Bill Belichick. And by that I mean, his press conferences have a reputation for being the most pointless exercises in human history. He’s a one man Media Relations Department. An extremely assholish Media Relations Department. With Bill Belichick all information is on a need to know basis. And according to BB, no one ever needs to know anything. Ever. This exchange is really egregious in douchitude; even by Bill Belichick standards Q: How close was Rob Gronkowski to playing yesterday? Bill Belichick: I don’t know. He was inactive. Q: Did he have a shot to play? Bill Belichick: He was inactive. Q: Going into the day, was there a chance he’d play? Bill Belichick: He was inactive for the game. Q: What about Danny Amendola? Belichick: He was inactive too. Q: I know they were inactive. Belichick: They were inactive so they didn’t play. Q: I think you have an idea how close they were. Belichick: Well, they weren’t able to play. What do you want, percentage points? They couldn’t play. Q: Going into the day, did you know they couldn’t play? Belichick: They were inactive. Q: That doesn’t answer my question. Belichick: They were inactive, it’s as simple as that. Reading between the lines, it appears that Gronkowski and Amendola were inactive. Paul M. Banks is the owner of The Sports Bank.net, an affiliate of Fox Sports.
