    It seems that most Pats fans like me are getting tired of the seemingly twisted regulations in the NFL that are particularly harsh for the Pats and lenient for other teams.

    We've seen the favoritism (if you choose to acknowledge it) with the Colts and deference to Bill Polian over several years. And now we've heard an explanation of the Jets videotaping that seems to be inconsistent with the NFL's previous penalty towards NEP and BB.

    So, what can we do as a fan base to simultaneously mobilize support for our team and also send a message to the NFL?

    1- ignore it, embrace it, just go out and win
    2- refuse to purchase any NFL memorabilia during the postseason
    3- spend the $ you would have given to the NFL for a jersey/etc by donating to the Jimmy Fund or another charity

    I think this is a conversation we should have looking forward to the postseason.

    This would be good, but I couldn't go without the memoribillia.

    yeah, looks like this idea might not be so popular.

    I think it's time for all Pats fans to sit back and enjoy what may be the best season in patriots history.
    It's time for pats fans to stop worrying about what other people think of the Pats...99% of the haters would LOVE to have this exact same team and organization in their town.

    Back in the 70s I hated the Cowboys and Steelers. Why?
    Because they were better than and got more attention the pats.
    Now it's the pats turn.

    The Pats Fugged up and paid and now they are making the league pay,lets just be happy with that.
