    Agree or disagree?

    Isn't it weird that the Patriots, wearing Red White and Blue, came out of nowhere to win the season that experienced 9-11, our invasion of Iraq, etc... and now we are the most hated team in the league?

    Not saying it's anything intentional, maybe more psychologically related.

    Can you, or anyone else, name an UNsuccessful team that is the most hated in its sport? I can't think of a single sport (and I can add two types of Rugby, Soccer and Cricket) where the most hated team is even in the bottom half. That's the more interesting thing for me, tbh.
    Here's a question for you. How much more tainted would, say, Indy or New England be, if Michael Vick had played for them? Is there any hate out there for Atlanta? None that I've seen.

    Take it one step further, Libby gets his sentence commuted for outing a CIA operative.. BB gets a 500 k fine for taping a game for later use.. there is not equity in this world.

    In the "everyone will do anything to tear down the top guys". Yeah, I might agree. In that most with WHAT THEY THINK is right and not really give a shat what anyone else thinks? Yeah, probably agree there too.

    I think that in their respective fields, there is no comparison in who is better at what they do, so it ends there.

    In a way, I feel bad for both of them. Millions of people want nothing more then to derail them and destroy whatever it is they do.
