Milloy Criticized: Lawyer Milloy is getting heat from the media for comments he made during Super Bowl Week to Boston radio station WEEI. He said that many players for the Patriots could be making more money elsewhere and they drank the "kool-aid" that Bill Belichick was selling and are staying for the good of the team instead of for personal allocades. The result has been three world championships in four years. His comments are stunning to say the least it shows what is wrong with many professional athletes who are in it for the money and glory instead of winning. It is hoped that Milloy just said them because he's still bitter at the way he was released before the start of last season. If not, he could be spreading negative vibes through the Bills locker room as well.
