Robert Kraft Takes Shot at Colts During McGinest Halftime Ceremony

At halftime during the New England Patriots match up with the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night, the franchise dedicated a ceremony in honor of their newest team hall of fame member, linebacker Willie McGinest.

Team owner Robert Kraft went to the podium first to introduce McGinest, and at the conclusion of McGinest’s own speech, Kraft returned to the microphone with one final message to fire up the Patriots faithful in attendance.

“There’s nothing more satisfying than saddling the Indianapolis Colts with a loss,” said Kraft to the crowd. “Something Willie did 16 times in his career.”

It was a comment that invoked the memories of McGinest’s memorable stop of Colts running back Edgerrin James at the goal line during a 2003 regular season game, a turnover on downs that sealed a win for the Patriots.

From that quote it was very clear, Kraft and the Patriots have not forgiven their arch rivals for creating the Deflategate saga almost nine months ago.
