I know these last few days have been difficult for many people. Indeed nothing tests one's character more than adversity - and I'm proud to see both among the majority of fans on this website and amongs the Patriots players themselves, how well everyone is dealing with a very difficult loss. Maybe I've missed the exception, but the rule amongst the Patriots players I've seen has been nothing but good sportsmen who have done nothing but respect their opponents and offer congratulations. Compare that with other team's who's players grouse and make excuses and claim that they are the better team and who's "classiest" players claim they'd win 9 games out of ten... The vast majority of the fans here too seem to accept the fact that the Giants played a great game, and by and large earned their Super Bowl rings and deserved to win on Sunday. Compare that to the fans and trolls we always see from other teams who have every conceivable reason why they were "robbed" of a victory. And compare that to the high number of Giants trolls who apparently don't know how to be gracious winners - which really makes them losers. Yes - I dare say this might be our finest moment - both for the players, and the fans - not because we won, but because of the way all have behaved following a loss. Trolls will say this is all spin or rationalization, but I really and truly am proud of our team and our fans.
