Title: Robert Kraft: Vladimir Putin took my Super Bowl ring
Post by: Coach is Back! on June 15, 2013, 11:22:23 AM
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has made the rounds this week, dishing on Tim Tebow's "spirituality," and telling tales about his encounters with powerful men of the east.
Brandt: The Tim Tebow puzzle
What is behind Bill Belichick's surprising decision to bring Tim Tebow to the Patriots? Gil Brandt tries to figure out the coach's angle. More ...

You might recall that Kraft in 2005 joined a cadre of businessmen to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in St. Petersburg. The Patriots owner walked into that meeting with a jewel-laced Super Bowl XXXIX ring on his finger, but left empty-handed.

"I showed the president my most recent Super Bowl ring," Kraft said at the time, per The Boston Globe. Putin "was clearly taken with its uniqueness ... at that point, I decided to give him the ring as a symbol of the respect and admiration that I have for the Russian people and the leadership of President Putin."

Not so fast. Kraft now admits Putin nabbed the ring -- worth upwards of $25,000 -- without his consent.

"I took out the ring and showed it to (Putin)," Kraft said this week, per the New York Post. "And he put it on and he goes, 'I can kill someone with this ring,' I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out."

Kraft kept his wits about him and complied with a call from the White House, in which a George W. Bush handler told him: " 'It would really be in the best interest of U.S.-Soviet relations if you meant to give the ring as a present.' "

I had an opportunity to chat with Kraft in the hours before Super Bowl XLVI, and asked him which of his Super Bowl victories meant the most. "That's like asking about different children," he said. "Every child is special."

Especially a child kidnapped by the Russians.

What a silly old man. He gave him the ring and never asked for it back. No insurance company would call this theft.

Old man probably just changed his mind. We know how greedy and stubborn his particular generation tends to be.

wait now, wait....
Coach, I know you are hardcore American red neck but even you can't really believe that V.V.Putin said "I can kill someone with this ring"


Not sure if this is even ment to be serious?
Someone working at white house surely knows Soviet Union at that point hadn't existed for 15 years.



Holy shit, CIA is seriously loosing the propaganda war if this is the best they can come up with  ;D

Putin is the man.

Judo blackbelt, kleptomaniac, poisoning dissidents with uranium and arming Syria.

The guy is a real life bond villain.

You've said that before. Why not go live among the commies if you enjoy it so much?

Putin is pissing off so many people he won't last long once he leaves office.  He will need to be surrounded by an army 24x7 to make sure no one tries to steal his $40+ billion that he stole.

Kraft is a major player for the tribe...However the guy is half in the bag at almost any function he attends and is borderline embarrassing because of his slurring from being drunk... This story being leaked is for sure some sort of GGewish propaganda.
