Why did Malcolm Butler not get put into the game?

Recommended Posts

This has become quite the story in this first hour after the game. I guess he really wasn't sick, or doesn't sound like it, at least.

Any speculation as to what the real reason is that New England is hiding? In a super bowl that is the final game of his current contract no less?

Because he fucked Gisele as she moaned "Fuck the Patriots" and wants to be a Raider.

 

Whatever the reason is, it's seeming like a rather stupid one. Putting safeties and ST'ers out there in the secondary as it's getting ripped to shred by Foles isn't telling me he wasn't healthy, not buying that.

 

Butler won't be in NE next year.

I find this very very hard to believe, but Rapaport is now reporting that he was benched for a variety of reasons, among them the fact that he showed up a day later because he was sick, and because of a "minor violation of team rules." If this is true, Belichek is a fucking idiot and in all likelihood cost the Patriots ring #6. Definitely a black mark on the record of what many consider to be the greatest coach of all time, a position I am now going to have to re-evaluate.

 

"One thing that Bill Belichick said this morning was that a lot goes into it," Rapoport said. "And yes, from what I understand, there are several factors that led Malcolm Butler, one of the team's top defensive players, to not be out on the field for the Super Bowl. Among those, he showed up a day later than teammates because he was sick. Remember, he was not at Opening Night. That was a factor. I'm also told that during practice this week he really struggled. Had a rough week of practice, perhaps because of illness, but maybe because of other things. That was one thing they had to consider in putting Eric Rowe out there instead of him.

"But I'm also told there were some other issues, disciplinary issues. There was a small or minor violation of team rules that happened earlier in the week that is one thing. And then there are some attitudes, frustrations as well. All of this combined to put Malcolm Butler not on the field with his teammates trying to win the Super Bowl, but on the sideline watching."

If that's true...

 

Of course coming from a team that ordered their players to show up on time to practice during a winter storm, that shouldn't be too surprising.

Malcolm Butler says he never missed curfew during Super Bowl week or "participated any of the ridiculous activities being reported."

There have been a range of rumors since Butler's de facto deactivation on Super Bowl Sunday. He says they are all false. No one, from Bill Belichick to outgoing DC Matt Patricia, has been willing to weigh in on why Butler, who led the Patriots in defensive snaps in 2017, was benched for the biggest game of the year. The only thing that's clear is that Butler will be moving on in free agency.

Fake news.Get it yet?

His jersey number and birthday date may be clues as well.No mystery.Nothing to see here.

He's telling the truth.He didn't do anything . He knows why he's out.

He still got more money than you ever will.

Supposedly it's because of illness, bad during practice, possibly smoking weed, and violating curfew. :shrug:

Lol All the players smoke weed and everyone knows it.Odds are the league even provides it. It's a great pain killer

Butler should be a cheaper option for CB needy teams. Come to the Titans and reunite with Ryan Logan. We play the Patriots in Nashville next year too. Good time to get back at them.

So you bitch at me for making money, but you demean someone because they don't make as much money as Malcolm Butler. Yep definitely a troll or the world's lowest intellectual lifeform.

 

Prove me wrong.

Anyone think that the outcome of the game would have been different had this not happened?

Anyone think this affects how FA plays out for him?

 

Nothing like this has ever happened. Quite...alarming.

I mean, I'm talking to any free agent before I bring him in, so I don't think it effects free agency as looking as he's got a decent explanation. As for the game, it was close enough that I can't definitively say that sitting Butler didn't impact the outcome.

Let's apply Occam's Razor to this problem.

Lol you don't even know how to analyze what Occam's razor is, or means.

 

It's the establishment making shit up so you don't question anything.

 

Herpity derpity, I'm too gullible to think anything wrong is going on. I was told to believe everything is simple,in the open and fair..Herpity derp,dummity dumm dumm.

I was of course generalizing. The point being plenty do it and no one worries about getting busted. It's just a fake news story.

Also, the establishment knows all weed laws are bullshit. Like most laws it's just in place to have control over people. People just obey, like the good little obedient doggies they are

The truth will come out when he's in the free agency process. We're definitely not the only ones asking these questions. I'm sure a lot of teams already know the reason at this point.

If you're not a troll then what's the point of coming on here and posting shit like this.

 

The reality is that they don't need to fix out comes and story lines for profit or to help condition people. They do both of those things anyway without fixing the out comes which they would have to spend and extraordinary amount of time and money to do. Have the scales been tipped in favor for a team one way or the other? At times I think yeah but this is just so dumb dude. There's no way you're serious. Gotta give you props though because you got everyone's Jimmie's rustled.

I think that time has come and gone, him rustling jimmy's. I can finally say with a high degree of certainty I am over his stupid shit. Time to neg his dumb ass and move on. I have no further interest in engaging him. I am in the camp most are in, to ignore him until he leaves. I haven't seen somebody respond to him in a while.

You're just typing a bunch of beliefs with no ability to prove it true.

Again, common sense says with out a doubt that there is no way one QB can dominate for a decade unless everyone on the field knows not to touch him. Life is that simple if you actually think logically.

If it were real, more outcomes would be incredibly more random. No human is capable of dominating another human that often unless he knows to lie down. TV sports is childish fantasy.

If you are so smart, learn how to observe things. Watch defenders on every play.not the guy with the ball. All you'll see is defenders running up to the ball carrier and falling down. They don't flex their arms. They don't clinch their fingers...if they do, its for a split second,not enough to cause a problem.

go back and actually watch the Beasts run vs the saints. Use the eyes of an adult and you'll the Saints are just running up to him and falling down like good little well paid soldiers of fortune.

Wwe entertainment.

Never ever call views you don't understand, trolling. Never do that.

Lol at no way I'm serious. Your inability to understand or know anything, doesn't make it any less true.

Again, saying you believe I'm wrong won't make it true.

You gotta grow up and realize the world isn't what you think it is.

Of course I thought you were one of the people that knew that already.

reality is boring. the reality is they are creating a bunch of drama that doesnt exist and never happened. The reality is the same teams wouldnt keep winning if it was actually up to the play on the field and impartial refs..

You constantly accept being lied to. You complain about every ref's call and where they randomly spot the ball but you keep telling your logical mind its just a coincidence.

relly? the nba is just purley lucky to throw millions at Lebron.. to make promote and sell shoes with his name all over them.. he just luckily happens to show up in the finals every year no matter what team he is on?

Aaron Rodgers keeps getting thrown on the ground every year but keeps coming back into games? = fake injury.

Jocks are constantly getting commercials and acting careers during and after their playing days.. the world is just lucky they can do both? its because they already were actors. They know how tv production works.

if a team has 45 guys on it.. how come only basically 4 guys on each team are the ones interviewed over and over? its because theyve been told what to say and how to say it.
