    It seems I can't watch Fox News or read profootballtalk without hearing about what the Patriots are doing to help and other players around the NFL.

    Last week Kraft sent a big jumbo jet Patriots logo and everything on it to pick up supplies in China then they showed a tractor trailer Patriots logo and everything on it driving through the city delivering the supplies.

    Brady donated like 10,000 masks or supplies.

    Benjamin Watson was on Fox News yesterday morning.

    All I've heard about the Jets is them donating $1 million to help LOL Drew Brees donated $5 million to help his community.

    Where is Sam Darnold, Jamal Adams, the Johnsons? NY is only the epicenter of this pandemic in the USA and possibly soon the world.

    Speaking of Fox News:

    My wife and I just watched Bombshell over the weekend.

    Kraft has roots here (NYC) because he graduated from Columbia U

    When the Yeshiva University Basketball Team went the Div III Finals he gave them immense support in personal Video

    I dont like the Pats and their Coach of course and now Brady is gone gone gone

    Actions here speak louder than words...let him help NY have a "happy ending"..why not?

    It's nice and all that, but I don't give a shit what anybody has to say about the giving nature of Robert Kraft: it's also free publicity and a tax write-off. That doesn't mean he had to do it and it's certainly better than not doing it, but take it easy on on the selflessness aspect of the move.

    Can I shit all over that phony shill Joel Osteen again like I did in the Hurricane Harvey thread while at the same time extolling the polar opposite goodness of Mattress Mike? I can? Good!

    We both enjoyed it, although very disturbing what was going on over there. Hell, it likely still is, just much more under the radar.

    John Lithgow was pretty damn good as Roger Ailes.

    It'd be publicity and a write off for the Johnson's too but where are they? Trump mentioned Johnson and Johnson helping some how (don't remember specifically how) at his news conference yesterday. That's probably about all we'll hear

    I googled it all I could find was Trump offering to help the UK's prime minister Boris Johnson with medicines for his coronavirus infection. Perhaps you heard wrong?

    Better than nothing I guess. That was a very nice thing for Joe Douglas to do.

    Still they need to do more this is one of NY's darkest hours.

    Not only the Jets all the other local teams too where are the Giants, Yankees, Mets, Knicks, Nets, Islanders, Red Bulls, Rangers? I have literally heard jack squat about these teams stepping up for NY.

    How is it possible that in a town with so many pro sports teams it is the frickin' New England Patriots that stepped up for NY at this time? I think in a way Kraft's actions are also indicative of what he thinks about what the local teams are NOT doing. He saw what was happening and he saw no one stepping up so he said it might as well be me.

    I also haven't heard anything from the other team's owners. Dolan with his bad PR should have been the first one visible. The Wilpon's are broke and they will probably try and get a bailout. These owners have made a fortune from New York fans. Time to give some back.

    Maybe they're doing their share but aren't looking for recognition?

    Jets spent more than the Pats but you have an issue with it? Why?
