What was the worst day as a Patriots fan that you had to go through - Is this scandal the worst?
Have you been a Patriots fan long? After winning one Super Bowl, let alone three out of four, it is hard to get so upset about anything that happens now.
I'm sure most will say a certain game a few months back. This whole camera scandfal hasn't even concluded so there is no reason to mark this down ... yet. I don't even think this would rank up there if we lose a 1st round pick and Belly gets a suspension of some sort.
My worst day was possibly the day I heard or Bruschi's stroke and Marquis Hill's accidental drowning.
Fan Since 1978 - And all through those VERY lean years in the late 80s-early 90s which showed the world I was NEVER a bandwagoner.
Yes Bruschis stroke and the AFCCG loss to Indy can definately rank up there - I guess I am going back a ways with some of the selections since I have seen those games and other stuff along the way.
Tatum's hit on Stingley. Nothing else compares, and this so called issue that people are posting about is nonsense in comparison. Get your priorities straight. All the rest is entertainment.
What scandal? Dark day? I've never been more proud to be a Patriots fan in my life. I think if we can stay healthy, this could be the best Patriots team ever.
Last weeks preview has me as excited as a kid at Christmas and this weeks game should be incredible!
Things have never looked better from a REAL fan's perspective. Wouldn't you agree?
Another VERY good one Clev - I guess I should have thought up some more of those forgettable days but its a bit late here in the east (2am) so my brain is not fully up to standards this evening,Thanks for the selection-it is definately worthy of the poll
Daryl Stingley's paralyzation...
1) The day they announced they were moving to Hartford.
2) The day they announced they were moving to St. Louis
3) Not for the fans but for the Players - the day they couldn't make payroll
Lets face it Patriots Nation will be 'in a daze' concerning this scandal and since no one knows what Goodell will do,if anything makes the wait near intolerable,at least for me - Will we lose draft picks-forfeit,Belichick possible suspension ect has my mind racing.
I really don't see Patriots fans back to total normalcy until the game is played on sunday and and good lord knows we need to beat SD now more than ever to get back up from the crap going all over tv and mediaville this week and once again focus on football in 2007
You know that is a credible choice but personally I never believed that BS about the team moving although Hartford would not have been so bad IMO since its still up in New England and we probably keep the name - For the Boston area residents I know you would have felt differently if they left for Connecticut.
I don't think this scandal is in the top 10. Every season-ending loss is worse, by far. Every career-threatening injury or health problem is worse, by far.
The Rodney HGH investigation and suspension was traumatic for Rodney lovers I am sure and could have made the poll as well.
when we lost against the Chicago Bears
I am pretty sure Marquise Hill's accident tops them all.
either Tatum's hit on Stingley or the entire 1990 (1--15) season.
getting pasted in the SB means we were IN the SB.
How about the 1-15, 2-14, 3-13 type seasons. Those are the dark days for me. This is a blip.
I've only been a Patriots fan since 1996 but for me it was the last week of 2002 when we beat the Dolphins only to lose our playoff spot when the Packers laid down against the Jets.
I take this as a question about the team, not tragedies to individuals. My darkest day as a fan was when it did really seem they were going to move to Hartford. Ugh. Everything else, you feel it will pass. Including this video nonsense.
Anything but Zeke Mowatt's package delivery. That one was just funny.
For me too. I was 15 and used to live and die by the Patriots back then. I still do, it's just I'm older now and can take a more practical approach to losses now. Even though I still dislike them very much.
