I’m not accepting the agents spin as gospel. BB does seem to be hard line about showing up on time and doing what the program asks of a player. At least in Jones’ case, if that wasn’t done, he shouldn’t be surprised that are consequences. I’d like to see some independent reporting to confirm whether Bailey really was a perfect attendee.
I noticed the agents statement said he never missed a treatment or practice, but not that he was never late. Maybe he was late constantly and Belichick was forced to send a message?

If players are being assholes about their rehab, that is not Belichick’s fault, and he cannot be blamed for punishing them. Adalius Thomas says hello.

You had absolutely no idea what was even happening in either of these situations, and it turns out now Jones was not respecting the process and showing up late repeatedly to rehab. What exactly do you want BB to do?
Unsure and as I said - the agent’s word isn’t gospel.

But even if BB and the Pats were 100% correct, I wish this never aired publicly

I am confident in Coach for these kinds of issues. Players get paid a lot of money to play a game at a professional level. They are currently not contributing to the team, and it's detracting to the team if they are not doing what is expected for individuals working their way back.

If Coach has to enforce minimal standards, repeatedly, not sure they are cut out for this team. But as a great philosopher once said, if I can change, you can change, anybody can change.
