Putin stole super bowl ring ?

i hope its not a repost as i just saw it on fox sports news

Quote:
Wonder if this move is covered by the Patriot Act.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft unveiled international intrigue and perhaps a covert cover-up on Thursday when he claimed Russian President Vladimir Putin actually stole his 2005 Super Bowl ring.

According to the New York Post’s Page 6 column, during Thursday night’s Carnegie Hall Medal of Excellence gala at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York, Kraft contradicted his own previous take when he claimed that Putin took the ring.

Although he wanted it back, the White House got involved – and Putin kept it. Putin has since refuted this claim.

The article explains that Kraft said the incident involving the $25,000, diamond-encrusted ring took place in 2005 when several business executives 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 reportedly said. “I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out.”

Although he issued a statement at the time saying that he had given Putin the ring “as a symbol of the respect and admiration that I have for the Russian people and [his] leadership,” Kraft diverged from that on Thursday.

According to the Page 6 report, at the time he had an interaction with the George W. Bush-led White House over the incident.

He was told by the White House, “‘It would really be in the best interest of US-Soviet relations if you meant to give the ring as a present.”

“I really didn’t [want to]. I had an emotional tie to the ring, it has my name on it,” Kraft said. “I don’t want to see it on eBay. There was a pause on the other end of the line, and the voice repeated, ‘It would really be in the best interest if you meant to give the ring as a present.’ ”

The ring is now reportedly kept in the Kremlin library.

It’s a good thing Kraft did not hand Putin the Lombardi Trophy.

I believe it was stolen, what motive would Kraft have to lie about it? Could you imagine how big the headlines would have been had it been reported to the media, and how could he even get it back the President can pretty much walk around and do what he wants with impunity. I could totally see him being told to keep it quiet in the interest of diplomatic relations like he's claiming.

In the mean time, Putin is preparing some polonium-210 for Kraft.

Putin did it to show he has power. He does this stuff all the time. He gave this lady (can't remember her name or position) two German Shepherds as a gift when he visited. He knew she was attacked by Shepherds when she was a child and is terrified of dogs.

This guy is a piece of work.

If Vladimir Putin ever takes anything from you, worry not: he will replace it with something bigger and better.

Addressing allegations that he stole a ring from billionaire Robert Kraft, awarded after the American football team he owns won the Super Bowl, the Russian president said: "You know, I remember neither Mr Kraft nor the ring."

"If it's such a valuable thing for Kraft and his team, then I have a proposal," Putin said in response to a question at an annual economic forum in St Petersburg. "I'll ask our firms to put together a really good, big thing, so everyone will see what an expensive thing it is, with good metal and a stone, so it will be passed from generation to generation in the team, whose interests are represented by Mr Kraft."

The owner of the New England Patriots told a US audience this month that Putin had pocketed the $25,000 (£16,000) diamond-encrusted ring during an awkward meeting in St Petersburg in 2005. "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 said, the New York Post reported last week. "I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out."

Kraft said the White House had convinced him to cover up the theft by claiming it was a gift. "I really didn't [want to]," he said. "I had an emotional tie to the ring, it has my name on it."

Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, has previously denied that Putin pocketed the ring and said he saw Kraft give it to the longtime president as a present. The ring is on display in a Kremlin library devoted to gifts.

The scandal has dominated coverage of Putin for more than a week, with analysts taking it as a sign of the leader's ruthlessness and love of luxury goods.

Continuing his sarcastic tone, Putin said he thought his proposal "would be the smartest solution partners can ever achieve while tackling such a complicated international problem".
