    What do you expect from a fanbase who calls the Patriots cheaters for spygate after their own team got caught for the same thing in 2009?

    They call the Pats cheaters :rolleyes: Out of ALL 32 Franchises they should talk the least. Salary Cap 1996-98? Does it ring a bell?

    That has got to be one of the most idiotic threads I've seen in a while. Do they really not know enough about football to know that a) it was a looong FG attempt, b) there's a good chance that a punt would only gain 17 yards of field position, and c) a first down practically seals the game?

    Agree or disagree with the decision from a strategic standpoint, but "insulting" the Broncos wasn't even on the table. Morons.

    Yes. There were a number of level headed replies, but the OP just wouldn't let it go. Here he is insulting the entire Pats nation while moaning about being insulted. :confused2:

    LOOOOL! I didn't realize that the Broncos fanbase was an extension of the Jets and Bills. Like seriously, do people just make mountains out of anthills for the fun of it? People overreact over the stupidest things. These guys need a backbone.

    BILL went for it because he respected Manning's abilities, not because he wanted to shove them in the face. As you can see Manning and the Broncos came pretty damn close to geting a few more TDs. Dumb threads, dumbs fans, I'm not even mad.

    Re: Cry me a river.

    It's kind of funny because no matter how many times different people point out that there were very legitimate reasons to go for it on 4th down, he refuses to acknowledge or discuss any of those reasons ... and then just keeps repeating himself, insisting that there was no valid reason to attempt to go for a first down.

    He says he started the thread to have a discussion, but to anybody who disagrees with his viewpoint it's as if he's covering his ears and shouting out 'I can't hear you, I can't hear you'...

    Clearly those fans who are saying that haven't watched any of the pats-colts games the past few years. BB has seen Manning take that team back wayyyy too many times.

    I find it funny that our organization is the only target for these kind of things. Our organization is always blasted by other fans as "classless, arrogant, running up the score, etc."

    The organization, players, and fans don't care what they think. Our motto is winning and thats what we do. We aren't here to play flag football and cry when things don't go our way. Bill and the organization is all about business. Its really nothing personal about what we do.

    Bingo! You got Bingo!! There are only 3 or 4 teams in the league he does that against. The Manning Brothers, Rodgers and Brees. Knuckleheads can't tell the difference from being respected and being dissed.

    Stay classy, Denver fans.

    From that thread, I've gathered that a small subset of their fans find the most insulting plays that they've ever endured to be:

    1) When the Patriots punted when they weren't 'supposed to'
    2) When the Patriots didn't punt when they were 'supposed to'

    Anyone who has a problem with either of those plays is a butthurt crybaby with no understanding of strategy/playing to win the game.

    Beliichick shows his enormous respect for Manning by going for it on 4th down, most patriot fans are outraged, and Denver fans think we insulted them.

    On top of that, he is quick to point out that he is personally not upset with the call and that anyone who makes that assumption is incorrect. Meanwhile, he assumes that the Broncos coaches must be insulted by the call based on nothing more than his opinion of it.

    Going for it on 4th down was moronic, but it was far more insulting to the Patriots and their fans than it was to the Broncos. The Broncos fans should be thankful for the gift.

    Actually, they were caught taping another team's practice, something the Patriots did not do.

    How they got a slap on the wrist for that from the league and a pass from the media is a mystery.

    McDaniels shut it down when he heard about it, refused to see the videos. He knew what it would have been like from being here during our controversy. For some reason Denver fans blame Josh for it though, when he was the one that stopped it.

    Lucky I'm 9,000 miles away so I can't angrily shake my fists at the OP then. :p

    Personally, I didn't like the Patriots going for it, but hey, it happens. The Pats won so the Broncos can whistle dixie as far as I'm concerned.
