Did anyone see Mike Vrabel juke that fan out after his TD?

    He rushed towards the back of the EZ acting as though he was going to give the Football away, and as the guy reached down for it, he pulled it away like "NOPE"! :D

    That was hilarious, because you know those fans were talking all kinds of crap when they were down there on the GL.

    I'm sure that most of the time Vrabel is more serious than a heart attack (and that will be even more true when he becomes a coach).

    It's great that he can revel in some widely-reported exceptions.

    According to Bru's book, he's the biggest joker out there.

    I dunno, it kind of bugs me when players taunt the crowd. When our guys mocked the Eagles "wing flap" in SB 39, I felt it was the kind of unnecessary "in yer face" stuff that we should be above and beyond as a class organization.

    And according to Patriot Reign, too, and numerous articles about him.

    Dan Pires (who posts on the Planet) says Vrabel is his biggest tormentor. :)

    Basically, Vrabel knows exactly when he should be serious, and when he should be a character.

    LOL, sometimes he might cross the line though. I distinctly remember reading in Bru's book how Vrabel's jokes about the stroke began to piss him off after awhile.

    While I'm certain Vrabel did it in a playful, not mean spirited manner, I didn't really like it either. Taunting the fans with cheap tricks is low brow stuff; plus it's bad karma. However, it was most likely a deliciously deliberate move by Vrabel to skewer the folks out there so ready to say what a bunch of cheatin', nasty thugs the Pats have become.

    He did it in '05 after picking off Jake Delhomme and scoring in Carolina. I think he just likes giving the business to opposing fans. Nothing wrong with that!

    He's done that before after catching touchdowns

    Bragging rights & Swagger are part of the game...for ALL players...without exception.

    Think about the emotion, effort, pain and suffering NFL players go through in a season. When a team, even the Patriots, wins the ultimate prize called the Super Bowl, all the emotions are released.

    The Patriots are different in that they hold more back than any other team during the season. But IMO, they deserve to swagger & flaunt during the playoffs and when they win a SB.

    I think we ALL recall the game against the Steeler in 2001 when they made their reservations for the AFC Championship after assuming they'd beat the Pats.

    Did the Patriot players deserve to stand in the middle of their stadium waving terrible towels?

    ABSOLUTELY!!

    We should be fine with our players swaggering and flaunting after a hard fought playoff game...especially when the other team has been shooting their mouths off...I'm all for it!

    That's pretty hard core. But not as bad as what that a-hole Dallas Clark did Sunday. He tossed the ball into the stands after he scored and then demanded it back from the fan who caught it -- and that's the HOMETOWN fans being treated that way. Definitely not very nice.

    Oh no, Vrabel had some fun with the fans, how classless :rolleyes:

    There's a fine line between being classy and having a stick up your ass. Just my opinion :D

    Agreed. I thought it was great. (But then again, I love smack talk!)

    Have you ever heard the crap these guys get from opposing fans (and what we as Pats fans give the opposing team)? It's brutal and yes they are professionals but to give it back to the fans once in awhile seems fair to me. I hated Sharpe's "call in the National Guard" comments back in the 90s but lets face it, if he were a Patriot it would be funny. I live by the old mantra "if you don't want them talking trash then stop them from scoring (winning)." If Cincy fans get pissed oh well.

    I agree that it was a d*ck move. To be clear though, Clark didn't toss the ball into the stands, he spiked it and it bounced away from him into the stands. I guess if he wanted the ball so badly, he shouldn't have spiked it.

    Truth is that now everything a Patriot player does its going to be criticized. Now he is going to just perform the part the NFL and other teams imposed to them... be the villain. The Pats are going to be the villain anyway, so why not enjoy it while you can? ;)

    He's done that before. It irritates me every time. I won't slam him for it, but I wish he wouldn't do it.

    The reason he pulled the ball away was because he asked the following question to the fans:

    "Hey, any of you Ohio Buckeyes fans?"

    <Crowd> "NOPE!"

    "Ok, no ball for you!" :D

    From an Ohio State alum:

    1. No true Buckeye would ever say "Ohio Buckeyes", it's either "Ohio State Buckeye" or "Ohio State" or "Buckeye" or "Buck" fans

    2. If that was the question, I guarantee the answer would have been to the affirmative from someone there
