I was reading a blog by John Walters of NBC Sports after the BCS championship game and he brought up the idea that most of the country (including the president elect) are clamoring for a college football playoff in the interest of "fairness" and to make sure the best teams (like 13-0 Utah and 13-1 USC this year) have a chance to play for the championship. He then contrasts that overwhelming sentiment to the almost indifferent attitude the same people (except Pats fans of course) have regarding an 11-5 team being left out of the playoffs. Of course, that led me to wonder if this contrast in attitudes about what's fair is simply a double standard or if it is something more sinister, namely, more anti-pats bias? Do you honestly believe that if it had been the Jets, Giants, or Cowboys sitting it out at 11-5 while the team they absolutely destroyed in week 16 is in their conference champion game there wouldn't be a huge sh*t storm right now for the NFL to take a look at the playoff system this offseason? Is it because it's Belichick getting screwed that it's like "oh well that's just the way it goes sometimes?"
