JMO, I have not heard this term used but it seems most appropriate to indicate what has happend in the last few days. I would really think modern day man had moved away from that terrible mentality. But it seems time has made little progress in cultivating a nature of civility among people. We deplored the lynch mobs of the past , the people who burned people at stakes but .... are we really any different? Then they used ropes and fire ... today we use words .... the result is the same ... a scorched soul. Why not let Belchick give his side?
