more call for nfl rules changes courtesy of pats...
Just another idiot spouting off.
I get a laugh out of all the pundits getting their panties in a wad over BB's leaving the field. It's always entertaining to watch so many people waste so much breath and time (that they will never get back) on such a non issue.
It is not a big deal or worth a fine. It just looks bad for him. Kinda gives people the impression he is a pouter. But to fine him for such a thing is silly. How much would the NFL fine someone for pouting?
We need to ban these obvious trolls....there's been an explosion of these miscreants on Patriots boards netwide.
yeah, well, jealous *****es come w/the territory when you win 18 games and 3 superbowls.
at the end of the day, giants still won but the headlines read: "PATS LOSE SUPERBOWL!"
How did BB not cheat? What then did he get fined $500,000 for and why did the team lose a 1st rd draft choice?
He cheated, but fans of other teams are jealous, too. The Pats have had unprecedented success, and along with that comes criticism and jealousy. Its part of the package... deal with it. At least you still have your 3 championships to console you at night.
this was old 4 months ago.
It all depends on your definition of cheating. If breaking the rules is cheating, then yes, he cheated. In much the same way that anyone who has ever gone 60 in a 45 is a criminal. There's a difference between committing a procedural infraction and cheating, and if you can't understand it then you're probably an idiot or a troll.
All I know, is that before BB we were just the PATS. Now we are the New England Patriots, striking fear in the hearts of the whole league! I got his back, no matter what! GO BB! GO PATS!
He broke the rules, he got punished. What are we arguing about? No one is saying he murdered anyone... just that he broke the rules.
if big dogs are on your porch talking you need to either quit the weed, or quit the disney channel -- they don't mix.
oops, nevermind -- there he goes.
Just like Holding is breaking the rules. They could call holding on every down if they wanted. Its a rule, not a criminal act. In fact getting away with a hold in a crucial time of a play or a game could have more of an impact on any given sunday. These are rules to a Game, god people act like he went out and destroyed the tapes to the JFK assasination. His penalty wasnt 10 yards because it was a coaching thing and a pissing contest between owners.
There are tons of HOFers that did shady stuff in thier day. Linemen stepping on each other with steel cleats, pokeing each other in the eyes in the scrum. But not today, bunch of tree hugging PC idiots running around today, its not fair, he hurt my feelings. I think he saw something he shouldnt have, good god, please. How about step up and say I lost because I lost. Simple as that.
You said that he cheated. He did not. He committed a procedural infraction (what he did was legal, how he did it wasn't); nothing more and nothing less. Of course, wearing your socks too short on gameday also qualifies as breaking the rules in the NFL, so whats the big deal?
It doesn't really bother me but I mean its always been pretty aparent that Belichick doesn't handle losing well, but then again the media has always had it out for him so these things tend to get over blown.
So, the Pats players were prematurely celebrating a loss? Can anyone say "agenda?"
Red Auerbach hated losing a lot and he won a lot of games...
You are all about splitting hairs. The fact is, if you play cards and are caught looking at someone elses hand, they will call you a cheater. You will call it trying to get an advantage. Get it?
That would never happen, since several of their poster boys (LdT and Peyton) do it after each annual loss in the playoffs.
I was personally insulted that the NFL made the teams run the final play, I don't give a (bleep) if that's the rule or not, it was rubbing salt in an open wound.
