    Bear with me...

    I support Manchester United, who are my hometown soccer team. I have spent the last 15 years (i.e. since they started winning, although I have been for a fan for the past 25 or more) listening to accusations that they are arrogant, cheat, are dirty and have glory hunting fans (which is partly true). Trust me, winning and being able to give the finger to everyone else is the best thing in the world.

    The same also applied to the England Rugby team of 2003, which had a reputation for being boring and "unethical". Again, beating Australia (with practically the last kick of the game) to win was f***ing fantastic. EVERYBODY hates England Rugby.

    Embrace it, lads and ladesses. Stick one finger (or two) up at the rest of the NFL every time when we win.

    There's a great song that Millwall soccer club sings to the tune of Sailing by Rod Stewart: "We are Millwall, we are Millwall. No one likes us, we don't care".

    Well said. I will relish beating the snot out of the rest of the NFL this year, and getting SB #4. The chip on the Pats shoulder will be as big as a California redwood.

    As a West Ham fan, i will ignore what you said about Millwall, scum :)

    But i totally agree with you, i hope we go 16-0, and get another SB win just to stick it to all the bastards who doubted us.

    And the same can be said about the England national football (soccer) team. They play boring, awful football, their coach is a registered clown, and many of their fans are rightfully labelled as the scum of the earth. However when they beat Argentina in the 90th minute to win the World Cup it was f***ing fantast..... Ohhh wait a minute. :D :p

    I don't like being the Raiders East, but I do admit that if the Pats win the Superbowl, I would give anything to be up on that podium with Goodell and Belichick. Imagine that conversation!

    I don't know, I'm kinda liking this new persona. The goody two shoes act was getting a little boring and hard to defend as each little thing happened (Moss, Harrison, etc).

    Being bad boys will be fun. Gillette, the house of horrors. And when NE comes to town, bring in your women and children.

    I'm with Gomezcat. Let the rest of the NFL fans hate us. I hope they friggin dominate this year and all these idiots can do is shout "cheaters cheaters" while the Pats totally destroy their teams. It will make winning that much better.

    I am sure you people are used to being hated. The Red Sox are hated in baseball. Patriots are hated in football. The Celtics are hated in basketball. I am sure it's no big deal.

    All of this sort of reminds me of the movie, "Gladiator". Russell Crowe walks into the Coliseum hated by the fans, he rallies his companions around him, goes out and totally annihilates the opponent only to become the champion for all of Rome. In some ways the Patriots will be doing this when they are playing away, not that they'll win over fans, but by being the team that they are capable of, and gaining respect in this fashion. As strange as it sounds this distraction will bring this team together better than any speech or practice, this actually works in our favor. I have a feeling the pats will be sending a serious message to the rest of the league on Sunday night!!

    BFD. Take your weak ass flames back to your jests boards, where you can do your collective circle jerk about Mangina and how great he is, and how you'll get that pick that the Pats lost, and whine about everything New England. We speak the truth here. WoMangina will not last with the team he has on the field now. The NY press corps will eat him alive. Except for Rich Cimini. I'll bet the Rat bought a special pair of knee pads especially for him.
