Bill Belichick on skipping coaches group photo: ‘You can Photoshop me in there’ (photo)


New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick affirmed his curmudgeonly and contrarian attitude towards pretty much everything by skipping out on appearing in the NFL head coach group photo during the NFL Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fla.

Worth noting: Belichick — by his own choice — is not a member of the coaches’ association, presumably providing all the reasons necessary to skip out on the photo.

This is the second year in a row that Belichick deemed himself to be above such a tedious annoyance — he and Sean Payton skipped out on the photograph last year (Belichick also skipped a coaches breakfast in 2011) — and on Tuesday, Belichick’s take on being the only one out of 32 NFL head coaches to be in absentia for the group shot was revealed.

Haha. Well played, Coach Belichick. Not only a witty retort, it demonstrates that Belichick is at least familiar with some nomenclature from the complex world of technological computer mumbo jumbo.

Obviously, making that sort of comment is going to inspire some wisenheimers to take up the offer and the impressive Photoshop work performed by Kissing Suzy Kolber takes the cake.


Haha, again. Even more well played, Kissing Suzy Kolber. Hilarious and slightly diabolical. Delightfully apropos for a Belichick Photoshop. Bravo.
