Patriots coach Bill Belichick’s team will go oldÂ school on the sideline moving forward patron the Surface tablet computers of Microsoft, he told reporters Tuesday.
Did he tell reporters.
Based on NESN.com, Belichick went on for over five full minutes. And though he was inquired aboutÂ sideline headsetsÂ malfunctioning during Sunday’s triumph over the Falcons, he started against the tablet computers.
âAs you likely found, I am done with the tablet computers,” he said. “Theyâre only too undependable for me. Iâm going to stick with graphics, which several of our other trainers do, also, because their only isnât enough uniformity in the operation of the tablet computers. I only canât take it anymore.”
Belichick subsequently touched on Internet connections andÂ batteries, the intricacy of the systems among other issues as well as helmets.
He shut with:Â âFor me, personally, itâs a private choice, Iâm done with the tablet computers. Iâll use the paper images from here on, because I only have given it my best chance. Iâve attempted to work through the procedure. But it only doesnât work for me, and thatâs because thereâs no uniformity to it.âÂ
In the event you would like Analog Bill’s complete response, NESN’s Zack Cox supplies it:
The rant of Belichick brought much media interest that Microsoft released a statement defending their tablets.
âWe regard Trainer Belichickâs choice, but stand supporting the dependability of Surface. We continue to get positive feedback on having Surface apparatus on the sidelines from team staff and trainers, players around the league. In the examples where sideline problems are reported in NFL matches, we work closely with the NFL to promptly address and solve.â
