    Comcast cronie Gregg Easterbrook goes back to the spygate well in search of some web hits for about the 10,000th time.

    Aside from such a ludicrous theory (football gods determine outcome of games? Really?) the whole basis of his piece is factually incorrect. Easterbrook claims the Pats have not won a playoff game since spygate (not only wrong once, but twice) and it is because Belichick and the Patriots never apologized for the video taping incident (wrong once again; they both apologized to members of the 31 other teams at the NFL meeting following that season).

    I'm not going to provide the original link because that would give Easterbrook exactly what he is looking for - more page views. Instead, here's a summary from NESN's Michael Hurley:

    Agree, I read that yesterday and I didnt want to give him the attention he craves. He gets off on tweaking Pats fans, he knows its good for hits to his site.

    It's about that time of the year for Easterbrook's "spygate" article. Like the tides of the sea.

    The guy knows about being punished by the Gods. The journalist Gods are still punishing him for his anti-semetic rant. Is Easterbrook even relevant anymore?

    He is almost as bad as the idiots on nfl.com who were posting about it under the Rex Ryan clip. What a bunch of crybaby losers. Can't let go of something from 4 years ago. The haters sure want to hang on to spygate, the stroy dying would destroy their whole world. The more I see these crybaby fans complain as the years have gone by, the more I enjoy the fact that the Pats beat their teams.

    If you want to make a meaningful statement about this, you need to quote the comments you are remarking on. When comments are shown most recent first or any way other than oldest-first, referring to the "second" comment is completely pointless.

    Just another pathetic story by the anti-semitic hack. Its not fooling anyone that his diatribes are directed toward a team owned by a Jewish family. Its time for Espn to fire that POS.

    I believe the Pats record is 51 -11 since sep of '07, so its pretty apparent that (spying :rolleyes:) had nothing to do with winning. Easterdouche is just trying to get attention....don't give it to him.
