They are going to bring it up every year until Belichick is out of the league. Then when anyone affiliated with the Pats gets in the HoF, it will come up, peaking when Belichick is up for nomination.

Then when some young coach passes him on the all time list, they will throw shade on it again. It's never going away. There's too many folks with axes to grind.
