    first of all, 'most' people don't hate us.

    lots of people do and they are...

    fans of other teams.


    I could've saved him alot of words. The reason those fans of other teams hate us?

    1 word.
    Jealousy.

    that's it. all the rest of those words are just rationalizations of why the pats are bad by fans of other teams who hate us cuz we're better than their team and dominate, frustrate and embarass them. Not of it is fair or true of course, we know that. but football fans get rapped up in base-level emotions, heading towards hatred all the time, and when someone is just dominating like this, it just eats them up with jealousy.

    they can write all the stories they like and make all the rationalizations they want. it isn't gonna change the fact that we're dominating their favorite team and their favorite team can't do anything about it. poor babies.

    maybe, if wade phillips didn't want us to keep playing on offense when the game was out of hand, he shouldn't have called that petty, classless timeout in order to prolong the game. if getting crushed bruises their feelings, maybe they should follow another sport. wimps.

    go pats, the more hate you create, the more you dominate !! :)

    That must be the life of a sports writer...What the hell is he doing slamming down Grey Geese (?) and soda early on a Sunday morning? A bloody mary with breakfast or brunch is one thing but, man, what a racket!

    See folks. That's why you shouldn't listen to sports writers. They're most likely drunk off their azz when they're writing their dreck.

    I thought it was an interesting article. I think, though, that those are simply the things people use to support already existing hate.

    It's fun to hate a team. It's fun to pile on. It's fun to get worked up about sports.

    The reality, though, is these are not reasons WHY people hate the Patriots. These are simply things that people who have decided its fun to hate the Patriots give for why.

    I hate the Yankees. Earlier this year, A-Rod yelled "ha" or something as he was running around third base. I called this classless. It's fun. If pressed for why I hate the Yankees, I'd give this as a reason. But it's not really. I hate the Yankees and so it's fun to talk about. "Running up the score" is no different.

    hate is a strong word. How can you hate a team which has one hell of accomplishment.?

    why don't they begin to love us more.?

    I think the Pats have truly lost only a handful of fans. I'm sure some people were truly pissed about the cheating and stopped watching.

    But I think most Patriots fans took it for what it was and moved on. These fans are totally loving this incredible season and are cheering on every pass, TD, and victory!!

    Also cheering on the Pats are those people who simply love football being played at the highest level.

    Against the Pats are those who are pissed their team does not measure up to the Pats. Being a long-time Pats fan I can understand this. I cannot forget the days the Pats weren't near as good as they were now.

    Also against the Pats are those that hate excellence. They oppose whatever is the best, whatever is on top. Many of these people rooted for the Pats in the 2001 SuperBowl.

    I am leaving out the many different petty things - All the columnists and talking heads who are continually made to look stupid by the Pats. There are more, but I think I have covered the biggest/loudest catagories.

    All the reasons he lists are just a cover for the ones I listed IMO. :rocker:

    Damn right the Pats are hated - I know people that still call Brady a "system" QB.

    The guy is writing tongue-in-cheek. It's an attempt at humor.
    Pats fans need to lighten up.
    I for one embrace the hate.

    You guys are right. People like to see the champs fall. About a week after we won last year, all I heard from the sports writers is how after losing so many players we(COLTS) would go 9-7 and just barely make the playoffs(In the Jags fans dreams). I guess thats why they play on sunday.

    You know, there is another reason why they hate us.
    We're going to be back next year, and the year after that...
    It's not just this year, guys.
    The Pats are going to be dominant in the next several years.
    THAT pisses them off.

    There is no real reason why people hate the Pats. Do we have a real reason on why we hated Dallas, and 49ers when they had their runs?

    I love the "please don't tell me this is a media creation, I have the quotes to back it up." Why not post a few to make your argument stronger? Oh yeah, you're lying.

    Wasn't that for the pats culture thing?
    If it is than we do, rightfully make that claim.
    He doesn't have to put up any examples.

    BTW Wildo, is that Maynards face on your avatar?
