    18-0 thus far. Hopefully 19-0 (im confident). You would think the whole league, fans and media would be proud and honored to see history made. But wrong..we have to deal with spygate..an HGH suspension..cheapshot..media thinking Brady is faking an injury. We are a very hated team believe it or not. I wish there would've been a time for us(everyone) to enjoy what the New England Patriots have accomplished without trying to put dirt on them. Everywhere i go, i see Patriots..GREAT..but 85% of the time, when undefeated is mentioned, so is Spygate or something else.

    Can people realize..Goodell said himself he doesnt see how it helped us. No proof it did anything. Can people realize..we didnt cheat this season if it is called cheating. The camera was taken at half before any material could be viewed and after that..there was no camera to speak of. Then they bring up the RAMS and their "we saw them at our final walkthrough" yet..no1 says anything about Pepper Johnson when he saw a Rams camera during their practice.

    The HGH..okay its over with. Believe Rodney's story or not but no mention of Marcus Stroud? Merriman talk died..so did Luis Castillo and their steroid/HGH involvement.

    Cheapshot..this is one i really hate seeing. We get considered a cheap team because a guy who took pride in calling himself and his team one of the dirtiest teams, decides to call out Seymour. Rodney is Rodney..we know that..hes physical 24/7. Wilfork? Gets tripped into Losman..DIRTY. Obviously doesnt try to poke Jacob's eye but just points a finger in his facemask and "DIRTY". Wilfork gets a facemask as he was being held and reached out.."DIRTY"

    Like Moss said when he got here "I have a microscope on me ..and my microscope is very large"

    Basically..now thats true about the whole team. Every little thing gets made into a huge mess.

    I guess being the best means your the most hated as well. In my opinion..teams/fans/media should be proud to witness history through their own eyes and be happy for us and not try to badmouth and make it as if were terrible guys

    i treat the situation fairly. If its clear we did something wrong..i say it and admit the mistake, such as Rodney and the HGH situation. I cant even watch Sports Center anymore because im sick of hearing the same thing over and over

    I guess my dream was just TOO PERFECT

    Why would I think that? The league's "parity" has been shredded, fans of other teams are bitter, and the media is a joke.

    If they ain't crying, the Pats ain't trying. :rocker:

    Embrace the hate and wear it like a badge of honor; I do quite a bit of traveling and catch large amounts of grief almost everywhere I go, I take it in stride and laugh it off 99% of the time.

    Now if was THEIR team that was going for an undefeated season and had the spygate tag on them, they'd list every reason in the world why it was not cheating.

    Bottom line is they have been to four Super Bowls in seven years and are undefeated this year; people cannot accept this and are looking under every rock to find out HOW it's possible to be successful for that long.

    Keep looking folks, there's nothing you'll find.........

    I hear ya, my point is that you shouldnt let it get to you. Here is what I'm doing tomorrow. I'm waking up and listening to BCN all day. Fox will not be turned on until kickoff. I will mute the TV and listen to the silky smooth voice of Gil Santos as he calls the game. If they win, I will unmute the TV for the trophy presentation, and then shut it off, as I listen to Gresch, Zolak, and Tanquay on BCN followed by the press conferences. Its gonna be pretty easy to do. ESPN is not in the plans for tomorrow, and it doesnt have to be.

    I suspect this will probably go away. Specter made his move and will probably get some support money from his second largest contributor, COMCAST (has had serious problems negotiating with the NFL Network).

    Specter gets to retire with his contributions, and he was probably taking a final shot at the NFL for COMCAST to boost his treasure chest.

    Bad politics bad timing, small potatos. It won't gain any momentum. I seriously doubt there is anything there.

    I am a little curious what this Patriot film guy actually has to offer.

    In 10 years most people will forget half this stuff ever happened. And people know that the Patriots did NOT cheat. They say this crap to get under your skin. They sat there a listened to every word Goodell said yesterday and will still call the team cheaters because they know it drives you insane. It'll always be tacked onto this season but in a few years people won't be so ignorant of it. And there are plenty rooting for history. It's just the haters are always louder and make it seem we are on our own.

    No kidding. If can't learn how to tune out the inane moping of the many, you're going to need a life time supply of Advil. Just be happy that you're one of the few who can enjoy greatness while the rest of the miserable sods on earth are crying about it.

    Why in the world would you let this bother you.

    This is the biggest form of respect you can receive.

    Remember, this Season Pats have been under more scrutiny then any team in history. If there was any team less likely of "gamesmanship" at any time, it is this years Patriots.

    And under the most adverse of situations, they may actually go 19-0. Nothing is definate, the game still needs to be played.

    But understand this. Were it not for the Pats success, you would have never heard of any of this.

    SO right now any teams fans that have been humiliated by teh Pats (and there are about 31 of them) are looking for some reason to say it's not there reams fault.

    Specter's motives are beyond transparent, especially given the timing.

    Don't let it bug you.

    Enjoy it!

    ONe other quick point.

    Every great team was hated at the pinnacle of there greatness. Every single one.

    It is the surest sign of respect.

    Sure, fans will say "it wasn't the same".

    Bullsh!t

    I know what I saw during the hieght of the Cowboys reign.

    Everyone hated them.

    Now things are different because of the internet.

    I'm inclined to agree. I just hope they don't take anymore draft picks away.

    Sounds like my plans as well.

    To be honest, ESPN has been out of my plans for quite some time.

    It is a sports tabloid. It was that before this season as well.

    I have actually managed to stay away from it since Jackson said his crap about the Patriots hating there coach.

    I have avoided clicking on PFT since spygate began.

    I am a happoer man for it ;-)

    Reiss's blog, Patriots Insiders, Patriots Planet and Patsfans.com are my only sources for Patriots info. I HAVE NO USE FOR ESPN OR PFT!! :mad:
    I have been boycotting ESPN for almost two years and I will continue to do so. I only read their articles when they are posted here or some other website. I have even less use for PFT...I HAVE BOYCOTTED THEM ALL YEAR AND I WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO. **** YOU FLORIO!! :mad:

    No Jersey Selected

    ===================================

    I hear you bud, the media sure does like to over play a story, and the Pats are not alone when it comes to cheating and steroids etc. But why in the world would you expect teams/fans/media to be happy or proud of what the Pats have accomplished. Are you happy and proud that the Fish went undefeated in 72? Are you happy for the Boys and the 9ers that they have won 5 SBs, or that the Jets won the most important SB ever?

    I can and do respect what the Pats have done this year and years past, but that I should be happy or proud of them,,,, I think not.

    I can't believe that I'm about to say this, but, I agree with you, OMG!! :eek:
    I wouldn't be happy for the Colts or Jets if they were on the verge of making history that's for sure. I would respect it, but I sure as hell wouldn't be happy about it.
