NFL  > General NFL  > Patriot fans: A Shocking Revelation
January 30, 2012, 08:14 PM
I have been perusing several sports chat communities over the past few months and have noticed something I never would have expected--Patriots fans give the Packers a lot of respect. Especially given the history between the two--with the Favre led Packers beating down the Pats in the Super Bowl. I suppose the Patriots have had their share of success over the past decade (really?! *mock-shock*), and it is easier to praise other teams when yours is winning. Anyone else notice this? Or any Pats fans want to chime in with their opinions on this? Before I had always heard and somewhat experienced Patriots fans to be akin to those in Philly or New York, now I would compare them to Steelers fans--energetic, intelligent, with a great respect for the game and its tradition. I am typically an NFC backer in the Super Bowl, but being just a bit bitter after the let down I experienced at the hands of Manning and Co. I would like to wish you the best next weekend. The Patriots are a game away from being THE team of this era and I wish you all a happy ending to this season. Thank you, for distinguishing yourself from the rank of slob Bear fans and their ilk.

They are LIKE steelers fans. I don't think anyone could compete with Steeler fans, except maybe Packer fans--and that I say in all seriousness. Yeah, so what I make wild claims, wanna fight about it? (hope you watch family guy, or that is going to be lost.)

Oh, and I'm sorry the Chargers suck--it's clearly affected your ability to not be an d!ckwad. I understand though, it must be hard to deal with such futility in an entire state known for poor fans.

Once upon a time ago the Patriots were a laughingstock of the league..for decades and nobody gave a rats **** about the team, the fans, the region, nothing! They played in a stadium that high school teams in Texas wouldn't play in. Win a few a Super Bowls and suddenly people want to be an expert all things Patriots. How amusing!

Except that Dallas has not really had a lot of talent across the board, just at a few select positions. JJ wins the award for getting very little bang for his billion bucks though. Just look at their home record since they moved into the palace.

Alex Spanos and Jerry Jones provide much needed humor, Mongo grateful for clowns.

Your ignorance is exposed by 1) your comment about the NY/Philly/Chicago fans, 2) your reference to the Packers' "beat down" of the Patriots in the SB - 6 point lead with 3 1/2 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, win by a 99 yard kickoff return, a 2pt conversion to the child molester, and 4 Bledsoe picks, limited to 8 2nd half points, 0 4th qtr points, Favre threw for less yards than Bledsoe, Pack outgained the Pats by a mere 66 net yards, and less than a yard per play more over the game, sacked 5 times, 3-15 3rd down conversions, both teams had 16 1st downs, and failed to beat the spread--not exactly a beat down, but yes, Bledsoe did play a bad game and the Packers played solid, and 3)

Well played, and Pats fans will be quick to remind anyone that Parcells already had his bags packed for NY to become coach of the Jets. Clearly, other than being up his ****, his head was elsewhere.

You can't blame him for exploring a new opportunity.
