    What an arrogant azzhole this guy is (quote is near the end of the article)

    He will not be laughing when the Giants are home in January as I do not think they will finish any better than 3rd in the NFC East - Possibly last if the Eagles play well (I think Washington surprises and finishes 2nd in that division)

    I wish Pierce would play tonight, then maybe the offense could give him something to laugh about - like an injury to keep him laughing on the sidelines for a few weeks.

    I also wish they would stop calling tonight's game a rematch - There will be lots of scrubs playing thier last game as a pro and bench warmers then starters next week so 'rematch' is a dumb word for this game.

    All of this is what NY/NJ dinks do...if we get back to the SB this year it's my fondest wish that they make it too.

    Hopefully someone goes to block him and gives special attention to his knee.

    Well they have the right to laugh as they won but they'll join the Ravens, Bucs, etc, as one year wonders. They likely would have anyway but certainly will now with Strahan and Osi gone.

    I didn't interpret it the same way you did. As much as it pains me to say this, Pierce is right - the Giants did get the last laugh...

    "It's going to be funny for me," Pierce said. "I'm going to laugh. We won. I can laugh. We got the last laugh.

    I think you may be kind of taking it out of context a little bit. I agree the way they have been acting (on the whole) since the SB is ridiculously unprofessional, but I just don't see it here.

    no way, he is not taking ot out of context. Yes you get the last laugh but going around and bragging about is being an arrogant Ahole no way around it. saying you are going to be laughing at your apponent is just being a jerk.

    Re: Antonio Pierce "I will laugh when I see them tonight"

    The Giants have shown to be really bad winners through all of this. From these quotes to Strahan's "Stomp You Out" classless rant during their ralley. Yes, the Pats have been known to do their own classless things like the post game celebration of the Lights Out Dance against San Deigo, but they leave it on the field. A lot of teams do stuff like that on the field, but when you do it in public or in print I think it crosses the line.

    Not really a big deal to me though. If Pierce gets a laugh about a preseason game where I bet a large portion of the Patriots starters won't even play (Brady, Light, Welker, Thomas, and Meriweather are already pretty much a forgone conclusion with other probably not playing either), more power to him. The question is whether Pierce will be laughing at the end of December? I am guessing not. I thought they could overcome the loss of Strahan, but not Strahan and Osi.

    He can laugh all he wants. That was last season and the new season begins in two weeks.

    The real question is: will Pierce be laughing in four years when he is out of the league and pennyless?

    Re: Antonio Pierce "I will laugh when I see them tonight"

    I don't see anything wrong with what he said. Read the article.

    Why? Well, seven months ago, the Patriots were doing a little trash talking on the field in Phoenix, laughing at the Giants and inviting them to their postgame parties and parades. That, of course, was before the final 2:39 when the Giants marched to the winning touchdown of Super Bowl XLII and earned the championship with a 17-14 win.

    Won't that mean a little something when they meet again on the field?

    "It's going to be funny for me," Pierce said. "I'm going to laugh. We won. I can laugh. We got the last laugh.

    I agree. Nothing wrong with what he said. Just typical thin-skinned Boston sports fans giving us rationale Pats fans a bad name. ;)

    He was responding to the reporter asking him about those (Pats) players who were (allegedly) laughing at the Giants before the SB. Not about the team in general. That's how I interpreted it.

    If Goodell bans trash talk, I'm switching to golf fan-hood. It's part of the game. No biggy. They beat us, got the last laugh, sort of - no one buys them being better than us even a bit - and the "talketh thee trash". No problem.

    Our scrubs will mop the floor with theirs. :D

    Re: Antonio Pierce "I will laugh when I see them tonight"

    BMF, this is the New York media we are talking about. Do you honestly believe what they write? NOT ME. Unless it's quoted, I don't believe anything not written by Mike Reiss. John Tomase, taught me a valuable lesson about the media and their agendas, and the NEW YORK Media HAS an agenda. I don't believe anything they print. For all we know they twisted this Pierce guys words to support their agenda of Patriot HATRED. This is OLD NEWS. The Patriots should laugh at them. They are the Defending Super Bowl champs and nobody gives a Damn. Their QB is not on the cover of SI. The QB of the team he's going to laugh at is on the cover.
    http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/reiss_pieces/
    When the 2008 season is over, we will see who is LAUGHING.
    And when did the Patriots laugh at them before that game...after that infamous Tomase article or before it? If this alleged laughter took place before the Tomase fiasco, then this report has some merit. If they claim that it happened right before the game, then that is BS. NO ONE in Patriots Nation was laughing after Tomase dropped that bomb.

    Re: Antonio Pierce "I will laugh when I see them tonight"

    Pierce is right in that they won. Laughing at the opponent you beat is different, IMO.

    Starting a new season by laughing at last year's opponents isn't the right thing to do regardless of how many games you won last year.

    I would hate to have Brady or Vrabel say they will be laughing at the Jets when they play them this season.

    Peirce has won the right to brag, not to laugh.

    Re: Antonio Pierce "I will laugh when I see them tonight"

    He has the right to do both if he wants, but he will also have to live with the consequences. Fortunately for him, this is preseason. BB and his coaching staff could care less about revenge. We have to cut 22 people this weekend. Important Roster decisions need to be made. If the Giants want to make this game out to be more than what it is, more power to them. I will laugh while I watch them crash and burn during the regular season.

    Read the comments at the bottom of the page. A couple of smackers but mostly Giants fans saying 18-0 is still incredible and admitting we've got a better chance of making it back.

    Re: Antonio Pierce "I will laugh when I see them tonight"

    Did anyone on this board say it was unprofessional when Rodney did the mock Philly eagle wing flap at the end of super BowlXXXIX? Was it unprofessional for Symour and the D-line to invite the Giants to their SB party befor the game was over? All is fair... or whatever other stupid cliche you want to say. Next time win the game.

    As much as it kills me to hear quotes like this, you gotta win the game and if you don't you can't complain.

    Re: Antonio Pierce "I will laugh when I see them tonight"

    This isn't the first time we heard that some Patriot players were inviting them to their victory party. I heard it shortly after we lost by several Giants players. It wasn't the media speculating these things, it was the players themselves saying these things.

    Stuff like:

    And of course, the Antonio Pierce quote was the result of the reporter asking him about the Patriots inviting the Giants to the Super Bowl party. No one is denying that. It should be a question asked when talking about the Giants first meeting with the team they upset in the Super Bowl. I don't think Pierce opened the interview by saying he's going to laugh at the Patriots.

    Also, it's not really a big deal, otherwise it would have been the focus of the story. Instead, it's buried deep in the story for some thin-skinned Pats fan to bring to the top.

    Totally agree, as much as it sucks to be on the bad end of these celebrations or quotes, the winner has every right to do it. I don't think the Pats will go down in history as the most gracious winners or losers.

    And if I remember correctly other players joined Rodney when he made the last pick on McNabb. Earlier in the game, Vrabel even did it, and I think Givens. Also, I'm pretty sure the Deion Branch wave bye-bye celebration against the Steelers was acceptable as well. :rolleyes:
