  • Why do YOU hate the Patriots?

    Why do you hate the Patriots? It's pretty clear about 9 out of 10 Mane regulars despise the Patriots .... but at least on the surface there's lots of reasons NOT to hate them:

    1. We're both original AFL, in fact we beat 'em in the first-ever AFL game
    2. Even though we didn't beat anybody in the AFL days, we're still 27-20 against them all-time
    3. Many feel their old logo helped change some long-held societal attitudes for the better
    4. Patriots lost TWO of the 13-straight NFC Super Bowl wins, helping set us up for our historic beat down of that streak
    5. They declined to bump their offer to Welker (because what, he was "too gung-ho?"), so Welker came over and was instrumental in helping us field the greatest offense ever.


    See? You CAN say nice things about the Patriots if you try.

        I thought of something else nice to say: Brady is a feminist, he's big on women's rights. How else could such a highly-paid athlete keep hold of his masculinity when his wife earns three times what he does?

        See? You can say nice things about them.

            I hate them primarily because of their fan base. They are absolutely intolerable. And living here makes it THAT much more unbearable.

            They INSIST upon you that you agree that Brady is the greatest EVAH!
            They INSIST upon you that BB is the greatest coach EVAH!

            And if you disagree with them.....well, you're just an ignorant sports fan.

            I also hate those fans b/c, as we all know, they are front-runners. Back in the 80s when they sucked, they had blackouts all the time b/c they couldn't sell out Sullivan Stadium.....one of the smaller venues in the league.

            The perception is reality, IMO.....and that is a HUGE population of "fans" became "fans" in 2001. Admittedly, you've got some people who became fans in 1993 with the arrival of Parcells and Bledsoe. And sure.....there are some old-timers who have been fans forever.

            But still, insufferable bastards.......all of them.

              I rooted for that 01 team. And even then I didnt mind them until the video scandal.

              Once Bellichek became Bellicheat, I have actively rooted against them.

                    They're so far up their own ass it's unbelievable.

                    The whole 'Patriot Way'/we're so much more of a TEAM than you bull****.

                    Not many individuals there I particularly hate.

                      For the most part, their success is fraudulent. I'm talking about the length they went to in order to cheat. What they did was more egregious than Bonds or Clemens doing steroids. I'm talking about the range of years that they were dedicated to amassing a video library of other teams' signals.

                      And while Bonds and Clemens may never make the hall of fame for doing what 60% of the league was doing, the media and others constantly look past the cheating when it comes to the Patriots. There have been other forms of cheating but few rise to that level. Sorry, but all of their Super Bowls are tainted and they should be vacated. Instead, what does Goodell do? He gives them a penalty that's a slap on the wrist compared to what they did. And why does the media constantly look past this when showering Belichick with praise?

                      Plus, look at who have suffered as a result of New England's cheating. There are the teams they *beat in the Super Bowls but also those who they *beat along the way. You have two QBs whose reputations have been shaped largely by what happened during their years of video taping signs. We also now have to tolerate guys like Bruschi, McGinest, and Evans on TV talking as grand old men of "the patriot way". It's stupid.

                      I think this insistence by many to look past thus or to dismiss it as no big deal might stem from an aversion by many to see shades of gray. Or maybe their flaw is that they want to insist that what they experienced was legitimate. Maybe they see football as being too sacred and don't want parts of its history to turn into McGwire/Sosa '98.

                      There's a difference between a mistake and fraud. What they did was fraud. It wasn't isolated or insignificant. They were dedicated to this form of fraud for several years. Madoff went to prison, Bonds isn't making it to the hall of fame, and the Patriots shouldn't get a pass.

                        Their fans.

                        The cheating.

                        The media (Peter King, Bill Simmons etc)

                          I agree it is %100 their fan base. Their fans can't fathom that there are other players that might be better than even some of theirs. They have to have say they have the best everything or they bleed out of their vages. And the instant one of the "best evah!" players leaves their team, he's a bum and whoever replaced him is "so much bettah!" Their fans march around the internet and attack anyone who thinks their team can win. They've lost games every season so there is empirical evidence they lose games, but they're total dickholes.

                          I have never minded the players. Rodney Harrison was always an annoying little puke, but he's been retired some years. I don't mind Belichick. Brady has started to annoy me. I didn't mind the Ugs, or his irritating wife. But the past few years he's really turned into a whiner on the field - as much as Phillip Rivers.

                          The biggest thing that pisses me off is when Manning loses, especially in the post season, he's labeled a choker, but when Brady loses, no one says anything.

                          The Patriots had the single biggest choke job in NFL history, blowing a perfect season to a a scrappy, but honestly not that great wild card Giants team. They lost on a catch to a receiver who isn't even in football anymore. And no one says a damn thing about Brady choking. He hasn't won a SB since the cheating scandal. And no one says as damn thing. He's played without solid defense his entire career, and had one of the best coaches in the history of football. He's failed to turn as many players into pro bowlers the way Manning has. Manning hasn't played with good defenses and had special teams hurt him in the playoffs.

                          So I hate the fans. And I hate the way the media gives Brady a pass. But beyond that, I don't have a problem with the players. I would probably like them more if we didn't have to play in Foxborough every year.

                            This x1,000.

                            Excuses. As you say.....when Manning loses....well, that's to be expected, cause he "sucks" in the playoffs and is a general choker.

                            But if Brady loses.....there's always an excuse....

                            "The refs FAHKED us."
                            "Brady is throwing to rookies this year."
                            "The refs FAHKED us."
                            "Our entire defense is injured."
                            "The refs FAHKED us."
                            "We fumbled too many times."
                            "The refs FAHKED us."
                            "The refs FAHKED us."
                            "The refs FAHKED us."

                            Nothing is Brady's fault.....NOTHING. Cause well, he's the greatest EVAH.

                            Unbearable.

                              The Patriots have my respect as a tough football team. They don't beat themselves. They are talented smart football players with excellent coaching. Good on'em. To beat them you have to play better and that is a tall order.
