Because... and I admit to not knowing why... For some reason I actually like Belichick more through all this. He's a serious bad*ss. The way he didn't break, and basically told the press to get lost. I mean, most people crack into pieces under that pressure and he stood tall. Didn't give an inch. It's not games with that guy, he really is who he is, and he doesn't give a sh*t what anybody thinks. Boy. He's the coach. If I was an opposing team's fan, I would HATE him. And that makes me love him even more. I know, I know. I should be ashamed and embarassed and all that. But for whatever reason I'm not, at all. The "good guys of the NFL" image was getting a little old, anyway. Never mind the Raiders and Bucs, we're the new pirates of the league. I think it's awesome. Bring on the hate!! If BB walked out of Foxboro tomorrow, fans of every other team would be scrambling to get their FO's to sign him. That's the bottom line. And they know it. Go Pats.
