I am curious. Why the hate, vitriol and venom toward the Patriots? Look, we were the laughing stock of the league for several years. Finally, a great owner bought the team and brought in good people from coaches to scouting personnel. The team has won three Super Bowls and is in contention every year. I seriously doubt the reason behind that is a video camera. Why? Why does the rest of the league and it's fans hate us? I don't remember the Steelers, Cowboys or 49er great teams get this much hate. I need to know. Is it because: -Our coach has a strange personality and is not all bubbly all the time? -We draft better than the rest of the league? -Our scouts apparently do a better job of judging a player's abilities. -Our quarterback is a stud and bangs supermodels and actresses? -Our coach happened to have issues within his marriage? -Our owner spends money wisely? -We have a nice new stadium? -We refuse to cave to player contract demands? -Once incident after a playoff game where a couple of immature players acted like fools...after the other team acted like dopes in the media prior to the game? -Our coach won't hug his ex-protege after a game? -We get all the calls in playoff games? <sarcasm> -Free agents choose to come play for us? -We have such an easy schedule year after year? -The Patriots whine to the league year after year asking them to change rules to benefit their system? -Our quarterback is in every other commercial? <sarcasm> -Our players are getting arrested? Please. Someone enlighten me. Is it simply jealousy that other franchises are inept? Is it because we are perennial contenders...even with no receivers and continuoisly losing coaching personnel? Is it the fact that we have three Super Bowl trophies? Whatever the reason, I am getting real sick of the hate. I would like nothing more than for us to put a spanking on San Diego Sunday night in front of the netire country.
