For the love of god... who cares if Danny turns people off?? 95% of the 
media in Boston hates Belichick on a personal level. Doesn't seem to hurt 
his team any. Belichick also had a rough first year and people wanted to 
drive him out of town. Good thing they didn't.

As for Danny having too much pride to admit his mistakes... nope. He traded 
Mike James, didn't he?
