Why don't they like each other? Is it just the simple principle of Mangini leaving for a division rival that has Belichik upset? Usually a head coach is happy to see one of his assistants get a head coaching job. Whats the deal?

One slant... from a source close to the Jets....

BB did not want EM to take the Jets job (same division and all)... so

when EM took the job, BB locked him out of his office...

I guess BB did not want EM to take any Pat's secrets with him to NY...

Ooops... the short version of st dudes link...

I've always wondered about stuff like that... I wonder how many signals and how much terminology they had to change because Mangini knows the Patriots' playbook.

I remember hearing and reading that BB had a problem with the owner of the Jets and a general dislike for the organization and the people in it and really was mad and upset at Mangini taking the job and that is what is causing the rift between the two. However i can't remember where i heard it so unless i can find an article take that with a grain of salt

Bingo, remember when Parcells left the Jets, BB was the hired as the new coach , however, he dislikes the organization; resigned the next day.

I read the article and I agree. But how would you feel if your buddy's team tampered with your Super Bowl MVP reciever. This screwed up the Pat's season as they have a bunch of scrappy recievers trying to fill his role. You don't expect a friends team to do this to you. I believe this had a moderate impact in BB's attitude towards his ex coach EM.
