I sent the letter below directly to MacMullan at the Globe after Reading her article in today's Globe: Ms. MacMullan, I was extremely disappointed in your article, "New Tricks for Old Underdogs". Specifically, your comments; "Get used to it. Even if New England runs the table at 19-0 and handily wins the Super Bowl, this issue isn't going away. There are too many football people, including coaches, general managers, players, and fans, who believe the Patriots are cheaters. With that comes a stubborn resolve never to acknowledge the accomplishments of this franchise. That's on Belichick's head. He may be a brilliant tactician, but he grossly misjudged the effect of his arrogance on his own legacy, and that of his team." The bolded statement was clearly just YOUR opinion which is so far from the truth, it's a LIE. You make me believe all that has been discussed and revealed never sunk through your thick skull. Most of the interviews with coaches told us that they felt this was going on forever & no big deal. Could you publish a list of coaches, general managers and players who believe the Patriots are Cheaters? If not, you should keep your opinions to yourself. Do you know who your audience is? Do you have a clue? I know most Patriots fans are not bothered by spygate. We feel it just wasn't a big deal since there were no competitive advantages gained. Contrary to your statement, the issue has been going away...and it will go away. It has not tainted any of the Patriots accomplishments since the rule was not in place when they were achieved. I will be perfectly blunt with you Ms. MacMullan, your comments reflect your ignorance and blatant stupidity regarding the facts. We barely hear a word of spygate on televised media but we hear praises and accolades everyday. Why would a reporter who writes for a newspaper whose readers LOVE their Patriots, write such ignorant comments regarding their team and the coach they love? Why did you not write of how much Belichik is loved by his players, fans and those close to him. You SHOULD want this to go away, yet your comments seem to reveal you desire that it does not. Can you explain this? Why are the Patriots constantly being discussed as one of the best teams ever without a word of spygate on ESPN and the NFL network, yet YOU feel it was necessary to make comments with no facts to back you up. You're as much of a jerk today and the day you were hired by the Globe. I suggest you start writing about figure skating or field hockey. Maybe you'll be more factual.
