Not sure about that, but Belichick sure is a poor sport. Refuses an interview on the post game show? Maybe he didn't want us to see him and Tom crying in the locker room?


Belicheat is a scumbag and an all around grump. I caught snippets of his post-game comments. I heard him complaining about officials' calls. Yup. That was the difference.

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

Twice this week I agree with LV. ;)


Stop the presses!

What's next? Cubs win the World Series? Next thing you'll be telling us is that it's going to snow in Alabama.

Well, the playoffs haven't been fun for me and the worst possible outcome has come to fruition.

I've had the displeasure of meeting Jim Harbaugh on a couple of occasions (back in the 80's) and he was just a real jerk. The typical bully jock that you see portrayed in movies who thinks he's better than everyone else. Not a fan to say the least.

And the Ravens? I've been sick of Ray Lewis for years, not to mention he escaped prosecution early on when someone was murdered and everyone seems to have forgotten that. The Media eats him up and I don't understand why. He's a thug and a drama queen.

Oh well, it is what it is, but it's certainly not enjoyable watching a Super Bowl when I hope both teams lose.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

That's why the Pittsburgh Steelers, the epitome of a classy football franchise and one rich with tradition, should be the AFC representative. Ah, well, there's next year when they will take their rightful place at the top of the NFL. :)

Wow, a couple of encounters about 30 years ago. Sounds like a solid foundation for a character critique. Maybe not...

Sounds more like someone who was jealous of the jocks in high school and still holds a grudge.

LOL, no, I was a jock in high school too in that I played sports (and in college). But I was a bit more well rounded than "jocks" and wasn't a dickhead to everyone I met. There's a difference. Either way, I'm not going to justify my reasons for disliking someone to you. He was a jerk then and from what I've seen the last few years is still a jerk. Maybe not, but that's the impression I get.

No skin in the game... but I picked both games correctly. I thought the blowout would have been the 49ers game, though... I thought the Ravens/Patriots game would have gone down to the end.

Oh well... I have no real rooting interest, but will hope for a competitive game in 2 weeks.

This is the NFL, a thread for MEN! If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen and let us real men continue. :box:

Since when do penalties equal crooked? What are you talking about? Cheating = crooked.


Yes. And when you're 'holding' you're cheating. When you jump offsides or do a chop block, you're cheating. When you take unauthorized drugs you are cheating.

When you are caught cheating, you are assessed a penalty. The NFL determined that recording some practices were cheating and the Patriots paid the penalty.

Now, I grant you, I didn't see the post-game but it's not hard to believe Belichik being grumpy. I would be too if my best receiver dropped a crucial 3rd down conversion that was in his hands.. If another 3rd down conversion was called back due to a STUPID holding call (the call was correct, the holding was stupid). Yeah, I'd be grumpy. I'd LIKE to think I could handle myself better but Bill DOES have a history of this.

LV - for all your angst against the Patriots, you really do sound like the local Red Sox fans and the way they complain about the Yankees.

And the Steelers? Yeah, rich football tradition - I won't argue there. But THEY should be the AFC reps? Ummm... You have to play the games... When their TEAM returns to the level of play that is their TRADITION... ...they'll be in 14th place overall. They have a .523 winning percentage. They're behind, in order, the Bears, Cowboys, Dolphins, Packers, 49ers, Ravens, Giants, Vikings, Raiders, Browns, Patriots, Broncos and Colts.

Although, to be kind, they're tied for 4th (with the Packers and Rams) in playoff appearances with 27 (behind the Giant's 31, the Cowboy's 30 and the Browns' 28.

They're 5th in NFL/Super Bowl championships with 6, behind the Packers (13), Bears (9), Giants (8) and Browns (8).

...just to interject a few facts amongst the feelings here :)

Thanks, Jack. You're the other end of the spectrum of good sportsmanship!

But Harbaugh did not use any of the plays I sent him!

Oh, darn! I was hoping for a barn burner, but I guess Sharpe wants to keep his job. Good catch!

That's pure nonsense. Cheating is an intentional attempt to be dishonest and get around the rules. It's immoral. Grabbing someone's jersey or accidentally crossing a line of scrimmage prematurely are rarely intentional and certainly not immoral.

What a horrible analogy. :rolleyes:
