I've got to get this off my chest..... As I would guess with 95% of all Patriot fans did, as soon as the Brady threw incomplete on 4th down, I couldn't look at the TV screen. Could not watch another crushing defeat that didn't just stick a knife in your gut, but through your heart as well. As bad as I feel, I cannot imagine the heartache our loved Patriots must be feeling even as I write this. I was determined to put it past me as fast as I could. I woke up monday morning and compartmentalized the pain. I went into work, put on my best face I could and complimented the Giants on playing a great game. They just wanted it more I guess. But they played great. They played like our boys do in big games. They didn't make mistakes and made plays when they needed to....Just like the Patriots have for the past 7 years. But, by the time I got home, I had no choice but to turn on the TV and take my medicine as a fan. What I heard makes me sick to my stomach. It seemed that everyone who had an opinion was taking thier shots at the Patiots. Oh, and by the way, the Giants won the SuperBowl.....But Bill Belichick's behavior was deplorable, the cheater finally got his due...yada yada yada..... So I ask.....WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY? The Patriot players are nothing but respectful, honorable people who compliment every team and coach and gave it thier best shot and came up short of impossible history and the media and that piece of sh!t Arlen Effing Spector and Rome is burning and Mike and Mike and everyone of the useless rat bastards on ESPN are still taking thier shots at a group of guys and thier coach (who truly is a tool, but a genius nonetheless), who played thier hearts out and lost. The Steelers, 49'ers and Cowboys are being remembered as dynasties that are fondly remembered while the Patriots, probably the greatest collection of heart and soul ever assembled, has been treated as an unwelcomed guest since day effing one. Why does the media honor past champions but treat these guys as pieces of crap? Sure Brady gets his deserved due, but outside of that? Honorable mention for some, but not welcomed to the club on the top floor. I love this country, but letting the media form public opinion is disgracing sport and character in this great country. I would have loved to see the SB stand and cheer the effort our guys put forth on achieving what was never done....but instead, they are getting kicked in the gut and called losers. If you have gotten this far on my personal rant, thank you for your time. I had a great year with all of you here and look forward to future corespondance but right now, I am in a dark place with little good left to say about the state of the fans and NFL and Arlen Effing Spector.
