    Maybe Belichick is so not used to losing in the postseason that he didn't realize he was supposed to give an exit interview. I mean it's only been two Super Bowls, two AFC Championship games, and three divisional playoff games he's lost in the past eight years. Maybe he'll remember the next time.

    Really, what's it gonna hurt Belichick to give that interview. Every losing coach does it. Does he think he is he too good for that interview?

    I don't like that Belichick looks like an arse when he loses (or wins for that matter), but who cares? Jim Harbaugh blew off Fox yesterday for a post game interview. Where is the outrage there? I can't remember, but I heard on the radio this morning that John Harbaugh blew off CBS last year without any outrage.

    Did give in 2006 and remember boomer ripped him for not saying anything looking not wanting to be there ? I have no problems with this crap. He didnt disrespect tasker, he didnt want to talk. Manning refused last week , why no outcry ?

    It goes both ways though. What's the point of interviewing him? If you just lose, the last thing you want is someone shoving a mic in your face and asking what's wrong. His job is to coach the New England Patriots, not to do the media's little song and dance.

    And not every coach does these stupid post game interviews. But Belichick is the only one they talk about it with because they despise him.

    The hatred is in the air! Jealousy at it's finest, people are just upset that the Pats are a model franchise.

    And forgive me but would you really want some idiot like Steve Tasker asking questions like, "Bill, why did you guys lose today?" when the clear answer is, "I have no idea, if I knew we wouldn't have lost." CBS and Sharpe is just a little butthurt that they didn't get to question the most known coach in the league. No one knows what Sharpe is saying half the time and he is probably still a little pissed off that his butt buddy Peyton lost last week.

    If horse mouth Sharpe is upset, than someone on our team is doing something right. Entitled, Big Headed Media like him are the reason I don't watch most sports entertainment shows like anything on ESPN or pre/post game stuff. Sometimes I wish we were an NFC team, I find the Fox team much more tolerable.

    How him and Sterling can be brothers I will never understand.

    This morning people were ripping Brady for running off the field.

    Not a peep about Manning running off it last week.

    What the hell does Costas know? The first part of Belichick's job is to coach his team. It is the end of the Patriots season, and Belichick *is* *entitled* to tie things up with his staff and team in the locker room immediately after the game.

    If Costas feels that the media's need for a soundbite trumps Belichick's Football duties to the Patriots org, then Costas ought to check his self-righteousness in the mirror.

    Demanding an interview immediately after the game is no different than butting in on a private conversation and getting miffed when reminded that you're interrupting. There's already a time, place, and protocol for media interaction as defined by the NFL.

    As for "Sportsmanship": that already took place at midfield between the players and coaches. Must we remind that the media they were NOT playing in the game, and therefore granting interviews with non-competitors has nothing to do with sportsmanship.

    Lastly, considering the kinds of questions the media asks during conferences, they give the impression they're too stupid to understand the game. If they want to know if losing Talib forced adjustments, then they should examine the film. Why do they need Belichick to do their job for them?

    As far as I see it: Belichick is doing his job. If the media can't do theirs, then too bad for the media. Don't blame someone else for your own deficiencies.

    One last shot by Sharpe before CBS kicks him out of that seat and plugs in Tony Gonzales. Buh-bye.

    My exact same thought. My only thing is when CBS does their 5 hours or whatever it is pregame i'm guessing they will address this again just to fill some time.

    Only reason this is news is because its BB. The comments on PFT are horrible which shows the hate towards him and the team. BB doesnt help himself by coming out and defending/addressing these things because he frankly doesnt care.

    I don't see the outcry over this. It's just Belichick being Belichick. It's not a whole lot different than how he is after a win.

    This stupid @$$ story is the reason BB doesn't do some interviews. He's been thrown under the bus by so many mediots that he has total disdain for them. Shannon Sharpe?, Bill could care less what he thinks. The owner of CBS was in Krafts booth. Sharpe may be the one looking like a Jack hole. And I'm sure his remarks will further build BB's disdain for these attention whores.

    You read the comments on PFT? What's the point? By and large, it's the dregs of society on there. Especially a day like today. People like to kick us when we're down, don't waste your time on there.

    Does anyone else find it ironic that Shannon ******ing Sharpe is lecturing ANYONE on good sportsmanship?

    If Marshal Faulk were not 10 times more biased, Sharpe would be my least favorite commentator.

    This whole thing is nuts!! How is it bad sportsmanship (and to whom?) not to answer a "how do you feel" question on the field? Didn't BB say Baltimore was better and deserved to win? That the Pats were outcoached and outplayed? Have we ever heard BB blame weather, penalties, injuries, or whatever and not give the other team credit?

    BB looks like he does not want to be at the presser for half the wins either.

    And has he ever been as ungracious in victory as Suggs?

    (It's like the gimmick of hurry-up when Pats do it, but OK when Peyton has been doing it for years?)

    It's easy to take shots at BB. He'll never respond to it.

    He doesn't talk to the media when he doesn't have to. So what?

    A logical explanation would be that in the heat of losing a big game ending the season he doesn't want to say something he will later regret or that will either embarrass him or Bob Kraft or the New England Patriots. Some members of the media and others would do well to learn from such reticence.

    Then again the media and Shannon Sharpe have agendas that don't exactly dovetail with the best interests of the BB, the Pats, the Krafts or Pats' fans.

    Take these critics opinions with a grain of salt. It's all about petty vendettas and self promotion.

    Cris Carter and Boomer Esiason are probably the two most hated "personalities" on TV by their colleques. Costas is a pompous little twerp, a self important windbag who's made a living out of fake outrage and lecturing hyperbole. Sharpe can barely string two coherent words together and Suggs beats up women and pours bleach on his infant son.

    They are all attention whores who are in no position to be lecturing anybody else on how to conduct themselves.

    Most fans understand BB's attitude toward the media and think nothing of it.
    Why the media continues to make this and issue is beyond us and can only be because they want a rating hit or are such bad reporters they do not remember the years before.
    Sean Payton does the same thing, and even bans reporters hes sick of from the saints facilities, but I dont hear that reported.
    Bill Parcells was exactly the same way and hes not vilified. Hes just seen a quirky old coach that hated media. Im sure they both learned it from him.

    Sharp being a commentator in the 1st place is kind of a joke. Hes certainly doesnt have the mental ability to think objectively, write a coherent and interesting article, no idea why he has a job.

    I think most fans like BB's attitude. Do whats required , but Im a coach, not a spokesmen. Shows he has the right priorities for the job.

    No problem. And Lol yeah, I didn't watch either of those two interviews live at the time either because those losses were absolutely gut wrenching, but I eventually watched them a few months after each loss and remembered them specifically when you asked the question.

    BB should have put his big boy pants on and done the interview. Nothing Sharpe said was inaccurate or unreasonable.

    That may be true, but where's the equal outrage for Mike Smith not doing a TV interview (correct me if I'm wrong).
