    What? How was the question worded? Did they actually use the words sore loser?

    What am I missing here? The clock went down to zero, the ref blew the whistle to signal end of game, Belichick crossed the field and congratulated his former colleague (it wasn't a typical BB drive-by, he actually stayed there and talked), and then went toward his locker room.

    If people like you had advised him to stay on the sideline and NOT congratulate Coughlin, and to insist they play out the final second that was put BACK on the clock later, as though the Patriots still had a chance, we would never have heard the end of it if Belichick had done that.

    The category was "Sore Losers"

    This headcoach threw a hissy fit and stormed off the field in the 2008 SuperBowl with 1 second left.

    If I were on Jeopardy! when that clue came up, I might have thrown a hissy fit. :mad:

    On a semi-related note, ABC briefly had a game show called Duel, hosted by noted JEST fan Mike Greenberg. The basic premise when it aired was, "Win five consecutive games, win $500,000."

    I would have loved to be on the show, just so I could say this: "Mike, you're a fan of the New York Jets, right? . . . What do you know about winning five games in a row?" :D

    You're kidding right? Unbelievable. Who is writing their questions nowadays, Vinnie from Queens?

    So did the contestant get the question right?
    I would have guessed Tony Dungy.

    What is all the sound a fury over this.

    He is a great head coach. But indignation over calling BB a sore loser at the end of the SB is insane.

    He was a sore loser at the end of the game and to pretend otherwise isn't just homerism it is utter blindness.

    For those familiar with the SNL skit (and I recommend you view it if you have not seen "Celebrity Jeopardy"), this Jeopardy question requires the response "Suck it, Trebek!"

    Did he or did he not shake Coughlin(his friend)'s hand and have a few words with him?

    Yes, but if there was time left on the clock (and there was plenty of discussion as to whether the clock hit zero and time was later added or the clock was at 1 - see post-Super Bowlk threads here), it is bad sportsmanship to call the game before it's over and deny the winning team the kneel down.

    But it is only bad sportsmanship if he intended to do that. If Hoodie knows Belichick embellished at his press conference when he said he was following the crowd and thought it was over, he is right. If Belichick is telling the truth, Hoodie is wrong because you cannot unintentionally be a sore loser based on a mistaken understanding of the situation.

    It is a debate with no end and not really worth rehashing. I tend to agree with Hoodie but cut Belichick some slack as no coach has ever dealt with the highs and lows that he had to deal with that season, including the constant media pressure directed at pursuit of an undefeated season, Spygate, relentless media attacking him and all his accomplishments, allegations, etc., so to end the season without a measure of redemption had to be particularly painful.

    Look, whether Bill knew or not is in doubt. The fact that we're still having debates about it shows that.

    Getting back to the main complaint is that Jeopardy is making it out to be a clear cut fact, that Bill was a sore loser, threw a hissy fit (does anyone remember a hissy fit being thrown - really???) and knowingly left before the time expired. And that's just bull.
    :disagreement:
