    I live on the West Coast and it seems across the country embittered folks are just plain jealous of the Patriots' success, especially on the heels of another Red Sox title and the Celtics renaissance.
    Shame that people can't appreciate a job well done for what it is. I think people naturally hate for other people to succeed and love to watch them fail.
    I think the Germans called it schadenfreude.
    That said, here's a funny little take on Big, Bad Bill:

    I really don't care what you call it. Call it jeolousy if that makes you feel better. I will feel better about the state of the world if the Pats lose in the playoffs and crown themselves choke artists.

    I don't care what you call it either. It's similar to what would you call the smackdown the Pats put on the pathetic Steelers. A good 'ol fashioned ass whoopin' or pounding? Take your pick, right Jimmy?:singing:

    You mean like how the 15-1 Steelers did when they lost to.... who was it that sent them home again? I can't quite remember.

    Exactly. No one really remembers because we did not go 16-0. If we had, everyone would.

    Boy reincarnation, you are one brain surgeon, that's for sure. Doofins fan no doubt; if not, thrill us all and tell us who your team of choice is as it's pretty clear it's not the 16-0 Patriots.

    You signed up here to troll, brilliant, it really is.

    Fact is everyone hates a winner unless it's their team, few are appreciative of what the Patriots did this year aside from Patriot fans.

    It's like the Steelers of the 70's, I fvcking HATED that team with a passion back then.

    At this point, I respect what they did, the hate has gone away.

    As far as cracky hating the Patriots, who can blame him; his team would have two more rings if it weren't for them..................

    Water. I find that water works really well in the process of floating boats made of reliable flotation materials.

    In all seriousness, this whole thread is dumb. To use the word jeolous, it is being implied that there is something to be jeolous of, namely perfection. The Pats are no more perfect today than they were 3 weeks ago. Perfection is 19-0, not 16-0. When the Pats are 19-0, I will congratulate you all on having something to truly be proud of. Until then, let's not book the parade. The most difficult part of the journey still await the 2007 Pats.

    You are correct Cracky. Answer me this though, you'd feel better about the world if the Pats lose? The world? Really? The same world in the middle of a war, an oil crisis, shall I go on?

    The world would be a better place if the Pats lose? That is some deep seeded hatred buddy. I don't want to live in a world where if a football team loses, the world is suddenly full of puppies and rainbows.

    You have matched my flare for the dramatic with equal drama of your own. By stating I would feel better about the world, I obviously did not mean it quite so literally. I was simply trying to communicate that I would be pleased.

    Then again, there may be a shred of literal text to be interpreted as well. If I wake up in mid-Fedruary to a really crappy bitter cold day void of much sunlight, I may feel just a bit better knowing I don't have to listen to the raging debate as to whether NE was the greatest team of all time for the next 30 years. I won't have to hear the talking heads at ESPN defend BB. I won't have to read SI issues declairing it the Tom Brady decade. I won't have to witness Rodney Harrison smiling with atrophy in his hands. I won;t have to witness Teddy "that's 3" Bruschi holdinh up 4 fingers. The only possible good that would come to my world from a perfect Pats season would be not having to listen to the Miami Dolphins brag every year. Aside from that, I suppose my world would be a better place if the pats lose this post-season.

    I certainly would chose world peace and health any day, but I would take a Pats' loss as a small gift from God.

    I love the drama...

    Think of it this way, Tom, Tedy et al are all at least better looking than Mercury (hey! he's a crackhead too!), Shula and the boys!

    Mercury is an fool. No defense for that guy. I'll be as pleased as NE fans to see him eat his words.

    No you're not a troll reincarnation/TW/Aqua/etc, etc, I figured we'd get LOADS of new Doofin fans here following a 1-15 campaign like the one your team just had. The only Doofin fan we ever had around here who flat out HATES the Patriots is you, only you.

    Once a tool, always a tool, welcome back.

    To be banned twice and come back again; man, you really have an unhealthy hardon towards the Patriots.

    Lying in wait to rub it in when we lose to the Jags no doubt (according to your brilliant prediction)...................

    No, reincarnation/TW/Aqua claims the Jags are going to beat the Steelers then beat us, he's been banging that drum for weeks............
