Brady looked like crap and the Giants flat beat them...

Ummm, Brady set a Super Bowl record with 16 straight completions. Your definition of "crap" obviously differs from mine. :D

Yea, I listened to him on the radio this week, listened to present and former players talk about specific things the Krafts did for them and their families. I have much respect for him, and his role in giving us football this season. But it's a great season and he should be proud of how hard his team faught and went out and played.

his role for giving us football? seriously..all that money on the table and u thought for a sec we weren't gonna have football. the whole lockout business was just a facade. Everyone knew we were gonna have football. no way the league leaves that much money on a table because ppl dont wanna agree. :eek:

Boy howdy, a lot of butthurt sallies here. :lol:

Maybe so, but tell me you haven't laughed when things went south for Brett Favre.

The words "sports fan" and "objective" don't often go together.

So Tom Brady and the Patriots are now hated blood rivals now? I hold no ill will against the Colts nor Peyton Manning...

Huge difference between being a hated division rival and being a sore loser. :)

They don't have to be hated rivals to enjoy seeing them lose.

I smile when Roethlisberger loses because he's a prick, not because I hate the Steelers. Likewise, you can find people in most fanbases who get a kick out of watching Jerry Jones fail. And heck, some teams are hated for their fans as much or more than for the teams themselves.

Enjoying the losses of people you don't like is just part of being a fan.

Nah. Not backtracking at all.

People can choose to dislike a particular team or player for any number of reasons, including a heartbreaking loss to said team or player.

In some cases, the team or player themselves validates those feelings, sometimes not. Take a guy like Warrick Dunm. He did plenty of damage to us on two rival teams, but he's such a good guy in real life I can't find it in my heart to dislike him.

Brady, on the other hand, I've always found to be kind of a prick. Thus, I have no problem seeing him lose. Ditto Bellichick. Couldn't stand Mike Vrabel when he was with them either. And then there's Rodney Harrison.

Guys like Kevin Faulk or Danny Woodhead though? Nothing in the world against them.

Yeah, I didn't realize he completed 16 in a row... I did notice none of those were very long gains... :D

I can hate whoever I choose tyvm, and the Pats are at the top of the list. Arrogant assholes all and I'm glad they lost.

Somehow, whenever people post stuff like this, they get the "you're jealous" or "Brady is great" crap... Brady is a great QB, never said he wasn't, I just can't stand the fuger.

Ty Cobb was a great baseball player too.

But by many accounts, not necessarily the most likeable of guys...

Heck, we've had guys on our own team that weren't exactly my favorite people in the world.

Outside of the AFC East, I'd be hard-pressed to find a fanbase that hates the Pats, Brady and Bellichik more than the Panthers

I wouldn't argue with that.
