Add thief to the list of adjectives that describe the bizarre comrade.
As for Kraft's ring ... that was during the years he and Belicheat were surreptitiously sending film crews out to opponents. Sorry if I'm not all broken up about Kraft losing a ring they didn't earn. Sometimes justice looks like a megalomaniacal dictator, I guess.
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft revealed the real story behind a 2005 meeting with Vladimir Putin, during which the Russian president pocketed his Super Bowl ring, worth more than $25,000. Kraft, at the time, claimed the diamond-encrusted bauble was a gift, but he now admits Putin stole it, and the White House intervened when he demanded it back.
Kraft explained the incident happened while Sandy Weill and other business execs were in St. Petersburg. I took out the ring and showed it to [Putin], and he put it on and he goes, I can kill someone with this ring, Kraft told the crowd at Carnegie Halls Medal of Excellence gala at the Waldorf-Astoria.I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out.
What a Putin!
You left the best part of the story out.
Wonder what would have happened to Kraft if he had pushed the issue?
Probably plutonium poisoning per Putin's psychopathic preference.
(is it still alliteration if the p is silent?)
Good question. You could maybe use pathological.
Pretty interesting. Contrasting contradicting stories.
Kraft: Putin stole Bowl ring
Russian president: I did not steal Super Bowl ring
At the bottom of Putin's denial...
Putin announces marriage split
Wonder if the wifey gets the ring? Or if she just disappears, Putin style.
Watch the 2nd video........a newspaper that reported that Putin was having an affair for years.............and was by him told to keep their noses out of his affairs...............no longer exists...........
In Soviet Russia, ring steals you!
I find it fairly unsurprising that Putin would be ballsy enough to pull a stunt like that. Of course it's despicable but almost like art in how brazen he is about it.
This is what, 7 or 8 years ago ? And it's just coming out now ? I think old codger Kraft is regressing into infantilism and just wants some attention, because back then he was too much of a wimp to apparently speak up to Putin (if his version of the story is accurate) ? I'd just shut up if I were Kraft.
Cheney probably called up Kraft and offered to discuss it on an upcoming hunting trip.
Vladimir Putin: I don't remember Robert Kraft or ring
I always knew WWIII would start over something dumb, but damn never did i think it would be over the NFL. And to think everyone says the NFL is getting soft
