You have to understand that much of the hatred/ severity from other teams and the media is the result of shock more than anything else. As the dozens of threads from every team's website begin to fall off, and the major news sites begin to clear this from their headlines, time and perspective will slowly bring justice to what this is: an infraction on our part, a chink in the armor of greatness, but no reason to think much less of a dynasty. There will always be people that hate our team out of jealousy. They have never give us our due to begin with. There will always be people who swear Bush was behind 9/11. Conspiracy theorists get excited the prospect of a underhanded workings, and what better, more publicized team is there than the Patriots? Most of us will feel much better the moment our guys step on the field on Sunday night, when we all breathe with relief that, indeed, the sky has not fallen, we are still the New England Patriots. The talking heads will quickly move past the scandal, and onto the next scandal, or the next Randy Moss highlight. Let's hope that other fan bases had a great week teeing off on our team this week. We really separated the truly "classy" NFL players and coaches from the whiners and losers, as this was one of the few times where players could make excuses and whine while getting off with impunity from the media.
