    "I guess you got the same thing as putting an asterisk by Barry Bonds' home run record...."

    "You have to acknowledge what they accomplished, but I don't know how you disregard Spygate," Shula said. "It's there. It happened. You don't know what was on those tapes and how much it helped. I think the commissioner just wanted it to go away."

    Well, I guess we can thank him for giving the team for some bulletin material during the bye-week and not take the foot off the pedal.

    When the champagne boys are drooling at the end of the year will we start hearing all the whining again concerning cameragate. Looks like its starting already.

    Keep it coming, *********. Give BB more incentive to shove an undefeated season down those doddering, champagne-guzzling, has-been fools' throats.

    Quiet... Do you hear Shula's schpincter tightening over the prospect of the 72 Dolphins losing their exlusive record? I do.

    Shula is senile and afraid that the Patriots will wipe his team off the record books. I'm just glad he will be alive to see it happen.

    Old farts have a tendency to say stuff like this to somehow pump up their own past accomplishments. I've heard it time and time again over the years, and its kind of sad and lacks graciousness.

    Q: You know who should be the MOST upset with Shula for saying all this?

    A: The New York Giants.

    Hi schpincter doesn't tighten properly anymore, that's part of his problem.

    Boy, those '72 Dolphins are so arrogant.
    Do they acknowledge that they never faced a team with a winning record in the '72 regular season?

    It's sad to watch everyone line up their excuses week after week. The Patriots are called 'classless', yet all they do is go out and play, tune out the naysayers, and play for each other.
    No whining, no finger pointing, no throwing teammates under the bus. They are the complete opposite.

    But because BB doesn't hug & kiss after games, or ask his team to stop playing so hard in the 4th quarter, they are vilified.

    I truly hope BB writes a tell all book when he retires, and names names.

    Having gone to high school and college in NYC, this doesn't surprise me coming from the Post. I must admit that I've lost some respect for Shula.

    I guess Shula wasn't satisfied with the 42-0 halftime deficiet last time. Can you imagine the beat down the Dolphins get now????

    Shula was a great coach. It's too bad he's a bitter old man who hasn't been significant for a long time.

    Don Shula is a pompous ass and why would anyone listen to a washed up irrelevant fool.

    He reminds me of AquaMoronForever!

    Don't throw all the Dolphins under the bus!
    It is no surprise Shula would act this way.He still goes nuts over the snowplow game.

    Shula is acting like such a jerk. Perhaps Nutri-System shrinks one's brain as well as waistline.

    BB and the NEP could not care any less as to what Shula says, let the bitter boy talk, it certainly reflects bad on him.

    Shula's comments means 0 to him and it means 0 to me as a fan. I could not care any less about the perfect record.

    What I care about is home field advantage, healthy starters, defensive cohesiveness, and ultimately championships.

    We have a goal, and that is to be the last team standing, esp. when everyone is going for that target on your back. People are gonna say what they are gonna say, as a team and fans we can not control that.

    What we have the best control over is being fans of our team and supporting our team.

    Do you honestly care what Shula has to say?

    I love it!!! What desperation can do to you? Make you sound like a sniveling crybaby loser. Personally going undefeated doesn't mean as much to me as some...but...if it bothers the 72 team and their coach that much I say go for it.

    I'm getting tried of Shula and the rest of the '72 fins crying about the Patriots going 19-0. If I were them I would welcome a new member to the Perfect season club. Personally I think they all need some more Ensure!

    I have a feeling that there's not going to be too many Patriots fans visiting Shula's new restaurant in the Providence Hilton next to the Civic Center.

    Is Shula even aware that the so-called smoking gun video from the first half of the first game was confiscated by the NFL and never made its way into the hands of anyone with the Patriots?

    If he wants to question previous season games he can do that but, like Paul McCartney's ex-wife, he just doesn't have a leg to stand on.

    I am shocked that Shula would say that. Shula is a classy guy and he would never take shots at the guy who is mentor and best friends with the guy who got his son fired last year and good friends with his mortal enemy who got him fired. I'm sure Belichick's close ties with Nick Saban and Jimmy Johnson had nothing to do with Shula's opinion of the whole situation.

    Besides, he needs to lay the ground work if the Pats do break his 72 Dolphins record to discredit it so in their little petty minds that they are still the only "real" undefeated team assuming the Pats break the record. And yes, I say break the record since if the Pats go undefeated in a season it would be 19-0 and the Dolphins were 17-0.
