Wade Clears the Air; Denies Report

Cowboys coach Wade Phillips went out of his way to make sure that he does think believe in any way shape or form that he said to SI/HBO NFL Insider's Peter King that he think the Patriots Super Bowl titles under Bill Belichik are tainted because of "spy gate".
King on the HBO weekly NFL show that said "Wade Phillips this week told me something that I think a lot of coaches around the league and a lot of people around the league are still thinking and that is, 'Hey, New England was caught cheating and it is a black mark on their success.' There is no doubt in my mind that it is and more and more people around the league are starting to say, "Why did this thing just go away? Why didn't it get more traction?'"
Phillips denied he ever said that to King.
"The writer evidently got it wrong," Phillips said Friday morning. "If you know anything abaout me ... to quote me as saying 'black mark', that's an Eastern term. That's a Connecticut term. I might use smudge or something like that, from Texas. If you do any investigative reporting you know I didn't say that.
"I'm sure he misconstrued what I said. It was certainly his agenda. He went on and on, this was a Watergate thing. It was his feelings on it and I guess, for some reason, he felt like I agreed with him, which I absolutely do not."
HBO stands by the story.

Hey Mac. Nice job of writing...

Think that maybe you meant DOESN'T instead of DOES...
and that perhaps there should be the word "OR" in between think believe..

Cowboys coach Wade Phillips went out of his way to make sure that he does think believe in any way shape or form that he said to SI/HBO NFL Insider's Peter King that he think the Patriots Super Bowl titles under Bill Belichik are tainted because of "spy gate".

The way it is written it could be construed that maybe Wade DOES think it, or worse that he actually said it...

No wonder that few people left in the country actually take stock in what you scribes write…

Peter King is a wanna be. He's too much up Big Bills butt to give an honest "quote" about the "New Age" Cowboys when his buddy isn't leading the show. When you aint got no story, just twist the words around until you do. Great concept Peter.
