Belichick rages against touchline technology


LOS ANGELES: New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) he is giving up on touchline tablet technology, just weeks after he was seen slamming one down in frustration during his team’s defeat to Buffalo. The famously taciturn Patriots boss spoke at length to explain his frustration with the tablets, which are used by coaches across the NFL to review action in real time. “As you probably noticed, I’m done with the tablets,” Belichick, 64, told reporters. “They’re just too undependable for me. I’m going to stick with pictures, which several of our coaches do, as well, because there just isn’t enough consistency in the performance of the tablets. Footage of Belichick banging a tablet down angrily during the Pats 16-0 loss to the Bills on October 2 went viral.
