Belichick Ends Press Conference Abruptly Again

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick assumed that there would be questions about wide receiver Antonio Brown after more off-field news surfaced.

“I know there are some questions about Antonio Brown,” Belichick said. “We take all the situations with our team very seriously and there are some things we are looking into but I am not going to have any comment on the off the field situations or questions on that.”

Right off the bat, the Brown questions came out.

The question involved Belichick’s work with Brown and if the accusations hampered their ability to focus on game planning.

“When we work on football, we work on football,” Belichick said.

A reporter then asked Belichick about what Brown’s role will be against the New York Jets.

“No,” Belichick simply said. “Not gonna get into that, we’re gonna do what’s best for the team like we always do.”

Not even two minutes into the press conference, Belichick looked visibly agitated as the questions kept coming.

A reporter asked how he weighs what players do off the field with what is best for the team.

“It’s a big picture question and we answer it the best we can,” Belichick said. “There’s no set formula.”

He was then asked if he expected to have Brown available against their AFC East rival on Sunday.

“He’s on our roster,” Belichick said. ”

What Belichick told reporters in the beginning did not matter as yet another question was asked about Brown’s status based off of recent news.

Belichick clearly losing his patience, reminded reporters of what he said at the beginning.

“I think I have already addressed this so we’re gonna get ready for the Jets here,” Belichick said. “Happy to answer any football questions but I’m done with the rest of it.”

This did not matter as a reporter asked about what the threshold is for when enough is enough with the off-field stuff.

Belichick had enough.

“Ok, I’m good, I’ve had enough of that stuff,” Belichick said and walked off the podium.

The press conference lasted just over three minutes.

The Patriots face the Jets on Sunday at 1 p.m. EST.
