That was very nice of him, but it doesn’t suddenly transform them into a class organization.November 25, 2015 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm #1113614
Robert Kraft is a big supporter of Medinat Yisroel. He built Kraft Field, a fooball field in Yerushalayim, where Yeshivah boys play on Fridays.November 25, 2015 1:46 pm at 1:46 pm #1113615
They were always a class organization. Not all their employees are classy.
Disclosure: I hate football, but have had business dealings with the Krafts. I also know the Schwartz grandparents and the father of Ezra.November 25, 2015 3:51 pm at 3:51 pm #1113616

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and wide receiver Julian Edelman paid tribute to the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting victims during the team’s visit to Pittsburgh.
Kraft flew into the city early Saturday to visit the synagogue where a gunman opened fire in October and killed 11 people, according to the NFL Network. He also attended services at Rodef Shalom and accepted a rabbi’s invitation to speak to worshippers. He spoke partly in Hebrew, the NFL Network reported.
Edelman, as part of the NFL’s “My Cause, My Cleats” initiative, wore cleats honoring the victims. He posted a photo of his cleats on Twitter with one shoe featuring the Tree of Life synagogue logo and the other featuring a Star of David and the hashtag #StrongerThanHate.

Do you hate football because it’s American game?December 18, 2018 8:55 am at 8:55 am #1646463
I hate football because of its roughness and injuries caused, especially concussions and brain injuries.
I love baseball and basketball which are also American games. In fact we have a basketball court and a Little League sized baseball diamond here in the compound (along with a swimming pool and tennis) my kids and now grandchildren and siblings’ kids and grandchildren spend their summers and holidays here, not shipped off to sleep away camp.December 18, 2018 12:19 pm at 12:19 pm #1646642
You’re not playing it and the athletes who get paid millions of dollars, choose to play.December 18, 2018 12:49 pm at 12:49 pm #1646668
Yes, but those athletes are often pushed into it as kids when they don’t understand the risks.December 18, 2018 3:32 pm at 3:32 pm #1646981
Why do you always choose to start an argument?
You asked if I hated Football because it’s an American game, not if I played football or anything about salaries.
I gave you an honest answer and you should learn to accept the fact that opinions are personal preferences, not subject to your rebuttal.
I din’t like playing football as a child, I don’t think it is a safe sport.
For every professional player being paid millions, there are thousands of college and high school players being paid nothing, but still exposed to injury.
It has nothing to do with being an American Game, I don’t like Rugby for the same reasons.
Go pick a fight with someone who’s interested, I shall be ignoring you in the future.December 18, 2018 4:47 pm at 4:47 pm #1647420
Because this is a forum and you’re wrong on many issues, despite your credentials.
