    Why in the world do some of you want them to win anything???:confused::confused::confused::confused:

    Please go back in time and realize what this Organization has done
    to the PATs good name.

    Just think about it.
    There will ALWAYS be a * next to
    PATs Superbowl wins because of the JETS!


    How can any PATs fan ever hope this team wins anything. The Colts
    in all there extracurricular activities NEVER brought the shame on the PATs
    that the RATsters have. Think About it.

    If you are thinking it is ok for the JETS to win just close your eyes
    and try to recall how you felt when Camera gate was in full swing.
    Remember how you dispised this organization for being R A T S.

    Now tell me you still want them to win the AFC Championship.
    Can you really say that without feeling a hole in the pit of your stomach?
    If so all I can say is WOW ... unbelievable.

    I don't get it either. I hate the Colts as much as anyone does, believe me, but they are my choice today sadly.

    Well, actually, my first choice is for an interdimensional portal to come in and take Lucas Oil Stadium and both teams to an alternate universe. :)

    My second choice is a seventeen-overtime 3-0 win for the Colts.

    Third is just having the Colts beat the JEST.

    As I explained in another topic

    Jets lose? Big deal, they've already accomplished more than was expected this season and will still be quite happy with the season.

    Colts lose? Ridiculously, all-time embarrassing.

    Let the haters think the Pats' accomplishments have been "tainted." We all know better, as does anyone with any sense.

    I'm not a Jets fan, but I DESPISE the Colts and Steelers with a passion. A decade long rivalry will do that to you. Polian is the biggest POS in the NFL.

    All that said: Go Saints! :)

    You and I may not see one and their may not be one in the stats records
    but many many fans, commentators and even casual observers who are not PATs fans see one.
    Thanks to Jets and Comish who is really a Jet at heart.

    No matter what the Steelers and Colts have done it pales in comparison
    to what this despicable organization called the JETs has done to the
    good name of the Patriots.

    I'm with the jets.
    I hate them, but they earned it last week.
    Seeing Rivers lose a playoff game at home was one of the season's highlights for me.
    I dislike Rivers more than any player in the league.
    Jets D looked real good.
    Seeing Manning get knocked around today would provide more pleasure and entertainment to me than seeing the jets go down.
    NO will probably smoke them in the SB anyway.
    And my 3 sisters are jet fans in CT, so I'd be happy for them.

    Actually it was not the current Jets that did that. In particular it was Eric Mangini. Rex Ryan has nothing to do with Mangini's ratfink actions. I may dislike the Jets, but only because they are division rivals and their obnoxious fans.

    I hate Mangini for his rattiness and I'm surprised that he still has an NFL head coaching job. However I don't blame the Jets for that incident. It was media hype + Mangini that blew it up.

    PS There is no asterisk by the Pats accomplishments. Check the record books, check the hall of fame. I think you might be the one buying into the media hype here if you believe that the fictitious asterisk actually exists.

    I don't care what the JETs think. I do care that they tarnished the name
    of the Patriots with a trivial technicality and did it with a former Patriot
    traitor at the helm.
    I do care what other fans from other teams think of the Pats accomplishments because self recognition is not worthy recognition.

    We can say it doesn't matter what other fans think but for me, in all honesty, it does matter.

    The JETs have hurt my PATs beyond any forgiveness
    or wishing anything good for that organization.

    I hate Mangini for spy gate, not the jets organization. expect the pats-jets rivalry to become a fun one for the next 5 years or so, but the cry-baby, referee influencing, lay it down at 14-0 dip-****s...I can't stand em. It would be poetic if the jets knocked off indy in their own house after being literally lead into the playoffs on a leash by the same team in the same place. the colts would be the laughing stock of the league. Tell me that would not be the ultimate choke, in the history of the nfl. It would out do even the Lions 0-16 of last year, at least they didn't openly choose to loose two of their games...

    Who's most likely to get crushed in the SB? I can't root for either of these two and whoever wins today will hopefully be humiliated on Feb 7th in Miami.

    I absolutely couldn't stand to listen to Ryan and Sanchez after a victory today, then again for 2 weeks heading into the SB. That's more than I could bear I think.

    Replace the word Jets with the word Mangini and you might have half a point. Mangini was a completely disloyal traitor who ratted out his own mentor just to get an edge. But the fact remains that in the large scheme of things, it really doesn't matter. The Pats got a black eye for a year in the media. So what?

    It doesn't change history or 'taint' the Pats accomplishments in any way to an educated football fan. And 10 years from now, nobody will remember it except as maybe a footnote in history. What they will remember is that the Pats won 3 Lombardis in 4 years and were the first football Dynasty of the 21st century.

    "Actually it was not the current Jets that did that."
    you could say thatabout the Colts and Steelers also.
    But in fact JETs GM who a big part of it is still there. But it doesn't matter.
    They will always be the team that ratted on the PATs and many of their
    rotten fans with their degrading words who are young will be around for
    another 30 years

    Their GM is still there and he was a big part of it. JETS stand for the
    organization that hurt the PATs good name. No matter who was at the helm it was the JETS that did it and their fans loved it and degraded the
    PATs every chance they got. Don't forget that!

    Do you really think as long as commentators of this age are still alive that
    when they begin talking about PATs three Superbowl wins their won't be
    a reference to camera gate? Com on.

    If you buy into that make believe asterisk, you're actually giving into the hype of the very people you claim to hate. I don't buy it. It was merely one year of bad pub and it makes no difference to me.

    I don't take stock in the opinions of idiots. And that's what ESPN and most of the sports media were for one year. The hype blew over and it's no more than an afterthought now. It only continues to live if you buy into it. I certainly don't buy into it now nor ever before.

    By buying into it you empower a fiction that never should have existed in the first place. Consider that before you start/continue a thread that tries to revive a dead horse that should remain dead.

    It is not fiction in the minds of many many fans who are not Patriots.

    If there weren't so many PATs fans willing to let the Jets off the hook
    for what they did to the good name of the Patriots by wishing them to win
    the AFCC .... this thread would never have been started.

    It is fans who want to have mental block on who these JETs really are that stimulated the need to remind them of who these JETs really are.

    if that's the case, then every nfl dynasty has their asterisk. the steelers and their steroids with former players living on the streets and commiting suicide as the result of steroid abuse. the niners and circumventing the salary cap and debartolo being kicked out of the league for all his shady dealings. dallas and their " white house" doing crack and hookers, actually standing trial. compared to these transgressions, the location from where we were taping is not even a blip on the radar.

    and in the mind of many fans that is probably true. But none of those
    "transgressions" got the media attention that the PATs got. I think you
    will be hard pressed to find a fan who doesn't know about camera gate.

    Ditto.

    We ignored a line in the field operations guide. That violation was just about as serious as poor groundskeeping, turning down the thermostat in the visiting locker room, or under-inflating a game ball. It was only punished at all because the gripe went to the media.
