Grow some balls. If you don't want to be beaten by 45 points, then get a god damn defense.
It would be far more disprespectful for the Pats to feel sorry for your pathetic team that they'd just hand the ball over to you and treat you like a bunch of spoilt soccer mom kids who need Effort Trophies.
There is nothing respectful in trying NOT to score. In fact, there's nothing more insulting.
So grow the eff up.
I agree with you. But, while the opposing fans that whine like that are truly the classless ones, you can't put the Skins head coach with them. Just watched his press conference and he said firmly he didn't disagree or have a problem with a single thing the Patriots did. He's a great man, and NEVER whines! So, nobody lump him with those fans that whine.
Last week I heard the whiners say the Patriots ran up the score in the second half. Forget that the Patriots scored a grand total of 7 in the second half last week. Forget that the Dolphins were trying to score every time they got the ball, and didn't let up. But, the sorry fans thought the Patriots should kneel when they got the ball. It's a joke!
I just saw ESPN News, and they posted an email from a Skins fan from VA basically saying 'what were the Patriots doing running up the score when they were up 45 - 0?' Huh???????? They scored a TD on a 15 yard run by their back up quarterback. Are you kidding me? Running up the score? They have back ups in there. STOP THEM!
They put the back ups in, including their 4th string running back, with 8:30 to go in the game, and they are runnning up the score and classless?
The Skins sure did everthing they could to score when they got the ball. Somehow, I don't think you'll hear Patriots fans say you should have run the ball to run out the clock.
How about saying nice game, or something classy???!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Idiots!!
