I am trying to figure out when it all went south for the Patriots in the medias eyes. I remember people REALLY kicking up all the "BB Is EVIL~~!" talk around the second Jets/Pats game last year with all the handshake crap. Then after we beat the Chargers I thought the media wouldn't be able to hate us any more than they did that week (Classless, like their Head Coach was played about 1000 times), and I thought it would die down some after we lost to the Colts. But it never really did. It seemed like after we got Moss and AD, people were just searching for a reason to kick the rhetoric into overdrive, and Cameragate provided that opportunity. And then even this season it went from suspend BB for a game to break Brady's leg on a dirty play to 18-1 to suspend BB for life. But, the thing is why? Obviously, Bill Belichick has always been the same guy. He was just as stingy with giving the media anything back in 01 as he is now. What was the exact moment things changed from "Dynasty" to "Evil Empire"? Also, how does this story keep getting new legs? The talk had died down a bit during the playoffs, and then of course the days before the Super Bowl. But now Walsh has talked, nothing new happened, and Goodell said repeatedly nothing new will come as far as punishment. That was Tuesday. It's Sunday and we are still seeing every reporter that writes for a paper or website throwing op-ed pieces up. And finally, how much longer can this story really go on? Another week? A month? Could they possibly stretch it into September?
