You Stay Classy Miami And New England

Monday, February 04, 2008

I really hoped for a way that both of these two individuals could have been stopped, but I guess in the end it just wasn't meant to be. First up is Bill Belichick, and while I understand competition I think the only true members of that Patriots team were the ones who stayed on the field at the end of that game. Tedy Bruschi, you have the utmost respect from me sir.....



At least Randy Moss thought about it for a second before he ran off. So classless. I know it's one second but there's no other coach that would pull that.

Second up, Mercury Morris. He tries to sound classy but ruins it in the end. I'm happy that the Dolphins still have the undefeated season moniker, but it's not because of him.



Thanks for letting America celebrate Mercury. You ass.

On a side note, did anyone catch the montage/segment piece by Tom Rinaldi on ESPN? Christ, I didn't know someone died during the game. Talk about over the top . . .

Regardless of the outcome, thank goodness that the attention bestowed on Mercury Morris will come to an end. He needs to get his head out of his ass and move on... what an f'n joke this guy is!

i'm not surprised. Beli-cheat has no class. No class what so ever. And Randy back to his normal self. There is a God.

Absolutely ridiculous. You stay on the field, show a little class, respect the other team's accomplishment and finish the damn game. You don't quit; not in the Super Bowl.

Thank you for posting this interview with Morris. I worried who would wear the crown of World's Biggest Loser should Belichick not be able to fulfill his reign.

Come on, one second left? Who cares. I'll admit, I'm a Pats fan, but I wouldn't give a crap if an opposing coach walked off the field with a second left. He already shook hands with Coughlin, why should he stick around while all the stupid media members are ushered off the field. I can't believe this non-story is getting national attention.

Kudos to the Giants, who deserve a lot of credit for stopping one of the best offenses in NFL history.

I don't really fault Belichick and the Pats, considering that there was a ton of confusion, he had already headed to midfield and shook hands with Coughlin, and there was only one second left. It's not like he bolted with a minute or so left without congratulating Coughlin. You'll also notice that the clock operator had an itchy trigger finger - the clock had run out before the game ended, and then time got put back on. Besides, does anybody here think that it wasn't stupid to not just run the last two seconds off, especially once there was so little time left?

Mercury Morris, on the other hand, is a friggin' douchebag. He alone was enough for me to be rooting for the Patriots last night.

Not only did he ditch early, but he left his team when they were still on the field. No one should be surprised, that's the person Bill Belichik is.

The only reason the Giants won the SuperBowl is because Eddie Mush bet on the Patriots. www.EddieMush.com

Here's the real stuff, though: Bill Belichick, at the helm of probably the best football team we've ever seen, got totally outcoached on the biggest stage by Tom Freaking Coughlin.

I'm not a Giants fan, but that defense really played the game of their life. The Pat's O-Line just could do a damn thing to protect Brady. It was quite impressive to see them keep that pressure up throughout most of the game.

That was the best game ever!!!! Why are you bloggers soooo mean.... there was alot of confusion and Randy Moss did stay...you fans sit on your high horses in judgement and say awful things... you guys are worst than the newspaper columnist eventually your vitriol will become white noise and you will become even less influential than the columnists... BTW American Girl is a good enough Superbowl Half-Time song... stop being such a snob... I have seen your picture and you are not even cute.

We don't see a problem with leaving before losing a playoff game.

I have been a Pats fan since I was a little kid. I froze my ass on those metal bleachers in Foxboro Stadium more times than I can count. I love this team.

But what Belichick did was wrong. You stay to the end, you suck it up and you act like a man. You don't rush it so you can scurry off the field. I was really disappointed by what Belichick did last night.

And maybe now we can draft a linebacker or two to get the average age under 35? The Pats D totally ran out of gas in the fourth quarter.

That was a decent game with a great finish. Don't kid yourself by saying that that "7-3 in the 4th quarter" game was great.

Mercury Morris likely spent the night celebrating at Tyrone Biggums' $400,000 Crack Party.

Everyone thought that time had expired. The refs put a second back on the clock when the field was a mob scene. I have to disagree on this being a reflection on Belichick.

The loss? Yeah, he gets some blame for THAT.

Belichick- no class???

Are you kidding me???? What he did was extremely classy. He ran straight across to find Coughlin and congratulate him. He did not want to make the Giants run one play and just kneel. What would've been classless is if he would have wanted them to clear the field, line up and run a meaningless play (which I realize they did, but it was stupid, the refs should be able to call that game). I can't believe people would sit here and call him classless. If he would have ran straight off and not shook Coughlin's hand, then you call him classless all you want, but that's not what he did.

Mercury Morris and Shula were on the pregame show and the ESPN guys practically had the Pats winning the game already. They were saying the Fins would be 1A and the Pats 1B, that the record could only be tied etc etc. Only Morris said something like "They havent won anything yet"

Nobody mentions that idiot from ESPN congratulating Mercury Morris on "his big night." Are you fucking kidding me?! The guy congratulated a guy for being full of himself and taking some sort of credit for what the Giants did. What a douchebag!

Belichick is not being criticized for not shaking hands, he's being criticized because when the ref is right there trying to tell him something (presumably that there is still a second left on the clock and a play has to be run), he is shoving the ref out of the way.

He absolutely treated Coughlin with respect. That doesn't mean he wasn't being a douche.
