Jets controversy unearths apparent Belichick tripping video

Bill Belichick

When one NFL team is accused of wrongdoing, a common response is to turn the tables and point the finger at other teams who have done the same or similar things.  So it’s fitting that, in the wake of the suspension of Jets strength coach Sal Alosi for tripping Dolphins gunner Nolan Carroll, video has resurfaced from 2004 of Pats coach Bill Belichick apparently trying to trip former Colts receiver Marvin Harrison.

The video is largely comical, more embarrassing than sinister for Belichick, who stumbles into Harrison’s path and tries either to knock Harrison down or (in our view) to induce the kind of contact from Harrison that may have prompted the officials to penalize or eject Harrison.

Harrison’s reaction is just as funny; his body language suggests something along the lines of, “What the hell is wrong with that dude?”

The video was posted to YouTube on Wednesday.  A member of the media forwarded the link to us earlier today, and it has since appeared on sites like The Big Lead.

Unlike Alosi, Belichick wasn’t trying to impede Harrison during a play.  Still, we don’t recall this ever being an issue and we’re surprised it wasn’t a bigger deal at the time.  Though Belichick didn’t succeed in whatever he was trying to accomplish, whatever he was trying to accomplish looks inappropriate to us.

    “unearths”?

    this video has been referenced about a billion times in the last 6 years.

    Rare footage of the shy and elusive Abominable Showman of New England.

  3. hairpie says: Dec 16, 2010 5:05 PM

    looks to me like that shows the complete OPPOSITE of what you are implying. Belichick pulls his leg AWAY from Harrison…. probably worried he’d get shot if he accidentally tripped him.

  4. laffers says: Dec 16, 2010 5:05 PM

    You’re an idiot for even trying to compare the two!

    Cheaters never stop cheating.
    Patriots will always cheat.
    Belibitch will always be a b!tch.

    Some things you can always count on never changing.

    That’s why he’s been successful in New England. Belichick is the “KING OF CHEAT!”
    He makes Jame Bond 007 look like a traffic cop when it comes to spying and stealing!

    I have an idea. Let’s write an article on it.

  8. bradwins says: Dec 16, 2010 5:08 PM

    Inappropriate? Oh man, guys. Where has your sense of humor gone? The reason why the Alosi/Carroll thing was a big deal is because Carroll could have been seriously injured. It looks to me like Belichick was getting in Harrison’s way in order to keep him out of the ongoing play. That is insanely funny, and not at all dangerous or morally objectionable. I wish there were more stuff like this -innocent, harmless gamesmanship – in the NFL, rather than just the No Fun League that we are left with.

  9. thereisalwaysnextyear says: Dec 16, 2010 5:08 PM

    I feel like the “old” PFT would have gone through video and found things like this yourselves instead of relying on others. You do have access to a ton of video via NBC, I’d think.

  10. joelvis72 says: Dec 16, 2010 5:09 PM

    I am now firmly convinced that New England is the only team which has ever cheated, and will ever do so in the future.

  11. thereisalwaysnextyear says: Dec 16, 2010 5:10 PM

    Knowing what we know now, Belichick is lucky Marvin didn’t shoot him. OR maybe have someone else shoot him. ;)

  12. ndingeldein says: Dec 16, 2010 5:11 PM

    It seems like it could have been during the play…Belichick wasn’t exactly aware of when the play ended.

  13. boddickerocp says: Dec 16, 2010 5:14 PM

    Clearly Bill was impeding Harrison’s progress back on the field cause the Colts were in hurry up. He wasn’t trying to trip him or draw a penalty.

  14. wannymcstash says: Dec 16, 2010 5:15 PM

    This hasn’t “surfaced” if you look at the last milisecond of the video, you’ll see Mike Felger and Greg Dickerson, who are hosts of a weekly show here in the Boston area. They were SHOWING IT ON THEIR PROGRAM and laughing about it. Its not like this was unearthed and a big secret. They were busting on him for being such a dork about it.

    This isn’t even close to being the same thing.

    And its pretty funny that someone “happened” to find something about Belichick. Sounds to me like another deflection tactic.

    “But…but…look at Belichick! Don’t look at us!!”

  21. laxer37 says: Dec 16, 2010 5:29 PM

    Not quite sure what he was doing here but he clearly sees Harrison go out of bounds and seems to immediately make a bee-line into his path.

    Maybe this is nothing, but unfortunately for Pats fans a team that’s a proven cheater will always be under more scrutiny.

  22. threegriffons says: Dec 16, 2010 5:30 PM

    BFD! He didn’t try to take out Harrison’s knee.
    It didn’t appear to be planned either! Nice try though!

  28. darthvincent says: Dec 16, 2010 5:39 PM

    listening to Matt Millen on Jim Rome radio show today… he said in the old days when he played, the sidelines never let that opposing player get back onto the field. When the NFL changed the rules so that a gunner couldn’t keep running while out of bounds, is when the change came that the bench couldn’t impede his progress (too much)

  29. moolah954 says: Dec 16, 2010 5:43 PM

    Did you see how awkward Belly looked chasing down Harrison what a dope

  30. hcgraves says: Dec 16, 2010 5:44 PM

    Typical patriots, anyone stunned by this is a complete tool.

  31. jamie54 says: Dec 16, 2010 5:53 PM

    Sorry, don’t agree, looks like it was spur of the moment Oops by the way maybe I’ll try to get in MH’s way. In no way was it premeditated and/or coached to other individual’s playing pocket pool on the sidelines. Lame.

  32. frankvzappa says: Dec 16, 2010 5:53 PM

    its really too bad that people cant understand what an historically great team the patriots under Bill Belichick will go down as…all idiots can do is call them cheaters…like any amount of cheating could account for how coldly efficient this team has been for so long…just give it up, people, and enjoy what we are all priveledged to be witnessing…

  33. nathanbrady1234 says: Dec 16, 2010 5:54 PM

    For full disclosure I’m a Pats fan and I don’t think this is a big deal, this type of stuff happens in sports. I also didn’t think spygate was a big deal and don’t think “thighgate” is either. This is sports, it should fun not so damn serious.

    Why isn’t anyone questioning Carroll’s detour down the “no-touch” highway so the Jets couldn’t block him? Remember, he’s trying to kill the returner. For those who didn’t watch the game the Dolphins’ Nolan Carroll was flagged earlier in the game for unsportsmanlike conduct for running out of bounds and not returning to the field in a timely fashion. If people want to talk about fairness and cheating, what is he doing?

    Of course what Alsoi did was wrong but does he have to be hanged for it? He “cheated” just as much as Caroll did. He was in a permissable area after all.

    All this from a guy who despises the J E T S.

    @ boddickerocp

    “Clearly Bill was impeding Harrison’s progress back on the field cause the Colts were in hurry up. He wasn’t trying to trip him or draw a penalty.”

    This “interference” occurred as Ty Law was intercepting a Manning pass. The Colts being in hurry up would have no bearing. I agree that Belichick was not trying to trip him like Alosi, but he did interfere with Harrison getting back on the field.

    As a Pats fan, I am disappointed that Belichick would do something like this even though it happened 7 years ago. This upsets me more than CameraGate ever did.

  39. botully says: Dec 16, 2010 6:20 PM

    That’s the Patriots “tripping”video? Really?

    Wow, what a bunch of nothing at all.

  40. PFTiswhatitis says: Dec 16, 2010 6:21 PM

    In the case of the Jets, they intentionally setup a WALL of assistants in order to limit the gunner that was to be ridden out of bounds. It was premeditated and intentional and followed up with a trip. And now it is being covered-up by the slimeballs in NYC.
    In the case of the old BB footage that was mysteriously “uncovered” to draw attention away from the Jets cheating scandal, the play was coincidental and unintentional except for people that want to draw conclusions and divert attention from the real scandal that occurred last weekend by the Jets.
    It is time people wake-up to the reality that the Jets are cheatingest dirtiest scoundrels in the NFL and the league lets them get away with it time and time again.

  41. digg2000 says: Dec 16, 2010 6:21 PM

    Doesn’t even look like he’s trying to trip but rather just get in his way of getting back on the field. I wouldn’t really compare this to Carroll’s thing.

  42. lazerlike42 says: Dec 16, 2010 6:25 PM

    First of all, those users who have pointed out that this is an old video are right.

    But more importantly, it’s pretty clear what’s going on here, and it’s been discussed along with the video ever since it was first seen years ago.

    He’s not trying to knock Harrison down or get him penalized. Honestly, is the idea that Belichick is trying to get him penalized the first thing that comes to mind when watching this? He’s also not trying to impede Harrison because the Colts are in hurry up, as one user suggested. He was trying to get in Harrison’s way so that it took him longer to get back on the field because Ty Law had just made an interception. The extra second Harrison was stuck on the sideline could have earned Law an extra few yards or, in the best case, a TD on the return.

  43. kps93 says: Dec 16, 2010 6:25 PM

    Where’s the trip?? He ran in front of him to impede him going back on the field so he could not make a tackle.

    Who cares??? Bush league crap that everyone knows is played by people like Bellichek or Ryan. Kind of like Tom Brady’s shoulder injury on the injury report. Guy throws a 95 mph fastball 20 yards down field to the right earhole of the receiver in a blizzard with a sore shoulder?

  46. billsfan27 says: Dec 16, 2010 6:29 PM

    It took six years later before the Pats video is considered “cheating”… so NOW it’s cheating?

    This is just another low-blow from the Jets, a team that knows more than one way on how to blow things.

    Long live 45-3, chumps.

  47. habsman says: Dec 16, 2010 6:34 PM

    As a long time Patriot fan, I must agree with a lot of these posts.

    The Pats must be Cheating…..

    How else cany you explain a 700 win percentage AFTER spygate?

    How else can you explain Tom Brady performing at a level never seen before in the history of Quarterback play?

    How else can you explain clinching (almost) first overall in the eastern conference with 26 first or second year players?

    How else can you explain the top offense in the NFL with 4 free agent first stringers?

    How else can you explain being a fluke play away from an undefeated super bowl winning season?

    How else can you explain the fact we could possibly win another one this year, and there is nothing you can do about it?

    They must be Cheating……..

    And here is one guy that hopes they are NEVER caught.

  48. lightninglucci says: Dec 16, 2010 6:40 PM

    “Unlike Alosi, Belichick wasn’t trying to impede Harrison during a play”

    I see the exact opposite. The pass to Harrison was intercepted as Harrison went out of bounds. Belichick was blocking Harrison from coming back onto the field to make a tackle.

    Having said that, this isn’t even in the same ballpark as Alosi’s trip. Belichick wasn’t risking Harrison’s career with that maneuver.

  49. krow101 says: Dec 16, 2010 6:43 PM

    Bit of a reach there if you ask me.

  50. larj12 says: Dec 16, 2010 6:44 PM

    Listen guys! What Belicheck did was unsportsman like but not against the rules! he made an on the spot decision to “move” while on the area of the sidelines he’s allowed to man! to block harrison yet! but the issue with Alosi and the jets is a) he visibly stuck a knee out on a play running full tilt who could have influenced the play (manning had been picked off and harrisons impact would have been limited) and b) the the fact that a formation of men was set up prior too the play ofr the purpose of creating a obstruction…..So its one man acting alone on an a split second decision he believes was within the rules and specific plan put in play for a group to obstruct the gunner! both are stupid but the latter is far more serious!

  51. rectumnearlykilledem says: Dec 16, 2010 6:44 PM

    Looks like Rex Ryacheat and his boys are starting to panic. The Cheatin Jets have finally been busted and have become the joke of the league (once again). Ryacheat will be fired w/in 2 years I’m sure.

  54. anacherforester says: Dec 16, 2010 6:48 PM

    This is an “Apparent Belichick Tripping Video”? You can’t be serious. Like none of us have never tried to get out of the way of somebody and had it look awkward. “Impeding” Harrison’s ability to get in on the next play is also nonsense. Manning had just thrown a pick. Indy’s O was coming off the field. A fact Belichick would’ve been sure to notice.

  55. lewsblues says: Dec 16, 2010 6:58 PM

    I hate the Pats, but sorry ….this one doesn’t fly …

    the coach is spinning to regain his look at the field sorta, kinda getting in the receiver’s path to the field … and Harrison pushes him out of the way … that’s when his legs move backward … he’s lucky he didn’t end up on the ground …

  56. thetooloftools says: Dec 16, 2010 6:59 PM

    this is the best video ever… you can see him follow the player back towards the bench and then try to butt bump him by standing in his way with his back to him.
    This is must see.
    I think it’s great.
    You mark my words… soon a “gunner” is going to be running down the sideline and instead of trying to fight his way back onto the field, he is just going to BLAST somebody.
    I mean really throw the wood to him.
    As in Batman SMACK BIFF POW ! I can’t wait to see that money Shot.
    The NFL has to do something but this video is a scream.
    And try putting at least bicycle helmets on the refs before one of them ends up in a coma please.

  57. richm2256 says: Dec 16, 2010 7:00 PM

    What a reach! This isn’t even on the same planet as what Alosi did! If Belichick intentionlly tried to trip an unsuspecting and defenseless opponent running at full tilt, then I would be the first to call for punishment, but THIS is a joke.

    Wonder how this video came to the forefront today? The re-release of this video has “Jets” written all over it. Dirty tricks, from a dirty team, who makes Richard Nixon look like a Cub Scout.

  58. mswravens says: Dec 16, 2010 7:01 PM

    Really? There’s a question about what he was doing? He was getting in Harrison’s way to keep him from or to obstruct him from returning to the play. The true question is: SO WHAT???

  59. kingjoe1 says: Dec 16, 2010 7:03 PM

  61. monkeesfan says: Dec 16, 2010 7:13 PM

    The video shows Belichick clearly surprised Marvin Harrison was there. There was no effort to impede Harrison; heck the Colts didn’t even make an issue of it (they were griping about holding all night). Jeff Fisher supposedly smiling at the Titans hit on Rodney Harrison in 2006 was more sinister than this.

  62. aaron276 says: Dec 16, 2010 7:15 PM

    oh my god this incriminating, the commissioner must take away the patriots 1st round pick next year and give it to the Jets, better yet all the patriots wins this season should be vacated and belichick should be given a lifetime ban

  63. tothefellowshipofthemiserable says: Dec 16, 2010 7:26 PM

  64. zimaman says: Dec 16, 2010 7:34 PM

    give me a break – not even close

    okay Belichick is not blessed with ballerina skills and made a clutsy move but jeez louise he was trying to get out of the way and spin around and get his eyes back on the field

    my god to insinuate that he tried to trip Harrison – what a bad joke…he was clearly trying to get back into the game after clearing out an area

    did you ever approach some one and he walks left and you walk right ..same thing

    MY GOD …Alosi could have crippled that kid and it was intentional and coached and the friggin JETS are lying ….lying about it from the top down.

    if the JETS had just told the truth from the begining ” our guys were behind the line, they are entitled to be there, we told them it was okay and Alosi just screwed up and should not have done that” then this would be all over with now.

  70. boblavoie says: Dec 16, 2010 7:43 PM

    Now if you were to ask Bill about that he would probably say something like, “I don’t know about that, I am just trying to get my team ready for Green Bay.”

    And he’s right AND that is why he is winning. Keep up the good work Bill – your the greatest coach the NFL ever had. Thank you for the last ten years.

  72. bluvayner says: Dec 16, 2010 7:45 PM

    It looks like Belichick wanted to lay a block on Harrison, but then thought better of it. He probably spotted the piece that Harrison was carrying, and decided to back off.

  73. dakota343 says: Dec 16, 2010 7:47 PM

    Sorry where was the “tripping”? Bit of a stretch

    Here’s how it happened; Manning throws a pick (shocking), Ty Law makes an amazing one hand catch as Harrison runs for cover (this is the game where Indy said the Pats DBs hit too hard). Harrison is trying to get back onto the field and tackle Law (who is now running back the INT). Belichick (comically) attempts to impede Harrison from getting back onto the field.

    At no time does he stick his leg out trying to trip him. Is he trying to get in his way, yes, but there is no malice for injury unlike Alosi

    Pats do it and it’s no big deal. What Belichick did in that video is far more egregious than anything Alosi did. Typical…

    I’m shocked PFT even posted this video because it goes against the trend to continue their Jets hate.

    Braylon gets arrested, the whole world is going crazy, yet Mike Williams does exactly the same thing and it’s no biggy.

    Continue the crusade against Rex and the Jets.

  76. funkylovemonkey says: Dec 16, 2010 7:54 PM

    At least the rest of the teams in the league have someone to blame when they do something wrong. Like little kids when they get caught. Denver gets caught taping, they blame New England. A Jet’s coach trips a player along the sidelines and the coaches say that the Patriots do it all the time. Then they show this ridiculous video of Belicheck body blocking Harrison as he’s trying to get back in bounds from years ago which isn’t close to being the same as tripping someone as he’s running at full speed. Especially considering the move allowed Harrison to put his shoulder into Belicheck as he headed off the field.

    The play was still happening. Ty Law was returning the interception when Belichick tried to impede Harrison.

  78. trickbunny says: Dec 16, 2010 8:04 PM

    Waiting for Jets fans to insist that, because of this, it makes what Assholi did “ok” :)

  79. palinforpresidentofnorthkorea says: Dec 16, 2010 8:05 PM

    Hilarious!

    The Hoodie wanted put his rear end out there for some lovin’. Probably texted Harrison a picture of his junk after the game.

  80. ratman56 says: Dec 16, 2010 8:08 PM

    In his statement claiming the Patriots also use the ‘wall’ Jets special teams coach Westhoff said he reviewed video tapes of the Patriots sidelines.

    Sounds to me like he just admitted the Jets video tape the Patriots coaching staff.

    Shouldn’t all you Patriots are cheater whiners be demanding the NFL demand and review these tapes. Not to do so would mean you’re either clueless or hypocrites,

    Oh wait! You’re both

    Clearly Bill was impeding Harrison’s progress back on the field cause the Colts were in hurry up. He wasn’t trying to trip him or draw a penalty.
    *********************************************************
    I agree completely, it wasn’t a dangerous move by Bellichick.

    I think it was cheap, but not dangerous.

  82. mean13 says: Dec 16, 2010 8:16 PM

    There are no limits that Belicheat won’t go to cheat.

    Colts weren’t in hurry up. think that was Manning’s fourth pick of the game, being a playoff game and all.

    It’s tough enough to be a life long Jet’s fan to go 45+ years and only go to 1 superbowl in the superbowl era while each of your current/past Division competators have been to at least 3 or more. Now you have the alleged New Jets acting like a bunch of teen agers who point fingers and blame others for there own incompetance.

    So much for accountability Mr. Johnson, Tanabaum & Rex. Just the Same Old Jet’s who will continue to chase the Pat’s and play little sister to the Giants just like the Mets do with the Yankee’s!!!

  85. habsman says: Dec 16, 2010 8:38 PM

    OK, I’ll go along with this cheating BS.

    The Pats are winning 70% of their games since “Spygate” by means of cheating.

    Two questions:

    1)How are they doing it?

    2)What are you going to do about it?

    Answers please.

    I’m as sure Marvin Harrison was intentionally “impeded” by Belichick from making his 3rd career tackle as I am that the sun will rise in the morning. Not.

  92. jjackwagon says: Dec 16, 2010 9:59 PM

    Clearly Belicheat was trying to impede Harrison path the get back on the field, why else would he run to that spot and then turn around and try to act innocent.
    This would have been the exact same as the Asoli incident if Harrison had fallen down.

    Once a cheater always a cheater and yes all of his SB’s are tainted

    Text book response from some who have posted taken out of the Democrat Liberal play book.

    1. You Deny
    2. Throw your own under the Bus
    3. Point Fingers at others
    4. Deny again
    5. Change the subject

    Sound Familiar?

    At least The Pat’s took responsibility and since then has taken it out on every NFL Team since.

    To those Patriots Haters who are Envious & Jealous you are in for another decade of Patriots Dynasty in the 21st Century. For you Jet fans it nothing new.

  94. j0esixpack says: Dec 16, 2010 10:29 PM

    So …. I just watched a tape that makes the Zapruder film look like a Dreamworks production that essentially shows nothing happened….

    Which proves…..

    Nothing happened?

    Unless I’m missing some other point here…. help me out Mike, throw me a bone…

  95. j0esixpack says: Dec 16, 2010 10:34 PM

    Rex Ryan should be more concerned about getting his team ready to play a must-win game against a Santonio Holmes agitated Steelers team than searching for Belichick spitting the “magic loogey” film.

    (Yes… a Seinfeld reference)

    Eat a dick.
    No offense, I am just sick of seeing people use sports boards ro make crappy political statements. It is a lame and tired cheapshot at liberal democrats, that could be said for both sides when there are so many better things to make fun of them for that would be funny and poignant.
    In the end you are neither clever or original. But you are a pats fan so you pribably have not watched football for very long and are forgiven.

    Cheatriot fans obviously have no life other than to whine about their PAtsies on the internet.

  98. jvw1982 says: Dec 16, 2010 11:32 PM

    Belicheat is amazing, in a flash he was trying to gain an advantage. what would make u think to do that right after and int? you would think he would be happy with the int but immediately he went the next level and try to score by cheating…..say what you want about the man but this confirms why he is always one step ahead of everyone else……he’s always trying to find an advantage against his opponent, legal or not legal it doesnt matter…..simply amazing…….

  99. brintfarvruhsux says: Dec 17, 2010 1:18 AM

    You Patriots haters are too funny; your jealously is so obvious that it is painful…

    And I am a Cowgirl’s fan but I respect what Belichick and Brady have done in NE!

  100. ampatsisahypocrite says: Dec 17, 2010 2:50 AM

    Larry Fitzgerald was allowed to run 50 yards upfield out of bounds chasing Harrison after the interception in Super Bowl XLIII. No flag.

    Maybe this kind of thing will shed light on the matter and they’ll stop letting guys use the sidelines to their advantage.

    Pretty sure you know nothing of your own team’s history (pre-2001). If you did you would understand a little humility. It will be crushing for you someday when the run at the top is over. Drink it in while you can but be careful, it’s intoxicating.

  102. cleverbob says: Dec 17, 2010 8:57 AM

    Haha, instant barrage of Pat fans making excuses and playing it down. Yea, its a minor thing, but its just another example of the lengths Belichick would go to for any kind of competitive edge. And he does look dorky as hell trying to be discrete about it.

    lol…First time I have ever passed a food item out my nose due to the laughter from this post. Very nicely done!

    And those getting after BB and Pats for cheating using this as an example is laughable. Look at the sidelines of any given game on Sunday. A play is live, and someone ends up out of bounds on the opposing team sidelines and you aren’t going to see them get out of the way. It’s a high level sport.

    Some of you douchbags really need a life. Hooterdawg is the best example talking about how Pats fans have no lives, but he is one of the biggest posters on this site. Hmmm. I guess he must be a Pats fan. Alosi went too far, but even that isn’t as big of a deal as everyone is making it out to be.

    Patriot haters – and I know you are

  105. 1historian says: Dec 19, 2010 7:44 AM

    Patriot haters, and I know you are LEGION:

    There are many benefits to being a Patriots fan, one of them being that when they are doing as well as they are you (I) get to be loud, obnoxious and arrogant. Out of sympathy (?) for non-Patriots fans I try to keep these admittedly irritating tendencies under some semblance of control, but when a bogus story like the above surfaces and the HATERS come out to play, it’s time, shall we say, for some facts and figures, so here goes:

    For 10 years (and counting) the Patriots organization has been the standard in the NFL. We have won 3 rings in 4 SB appearances, 8 out of the last 10 AFC East titles, been to the playoffs 8 out of the last 10 years, we have 22 1st and 2nd year players on our 53 man roster, we have 7 picks in the 1st 4 rounds of next year’s draft – 3 of the 1st 33 – along with Atlanta we have the best record in the NFL right now, average score of the last 3 games – 2 of them on the road – is 42-11, meaning that we are peaking at the right time, the list goes on an on.

    It ain’t gonna end any time soon, folks so – get used to it

  106. 1historian says: Dec 19, 2010 7:51 AM

    Some more irritating stuff – The Pats were caught stealing defensive signals in the 1st half of the 1st half of the 2007 season. They were told to stop, they did.

    Record since then? 49-15 – 76.5%.

    Allegations of cheating for 7 years prior to that – any proof? None.

    I was listening to that game in 2007 on the car radio and in the 2nd half the jets qb was hurt. When this happened the jets fans cheered loud enough so that it could be heard on the radio. Even the radio announcer had to acknowledge it.

  107. bard999 says: Dec 19, 2010 11:32 AM

    Yep…The Patriots cheat on every play, why they even cheat on each other in practice…We all remember Belicheat running onto the field to tackle Marshall Faulk during the superbowl that somehow the announcers and the NFL missed. Against the Panthers the Patriots staff managed to narrow the width of the uprights which again was duly missed. And of course Belicheat sauntered over to the Eagles side and spiked McNabb’s gatorade just before the final drive where McNabb ran out of gas and was getting sick in the huddle (well this was according to TO but of course he was bribed by Belicheat to say these things). Oh yeah, since 2001 the Patriots have been playing with 15 guys on the field on EVERY play, they just lost a few games including the superbowl against the Giants because “they neeeded to make it look good.” This year they are playing with 20 guys on a side and its no wonder why they have so many interceptions. The only thing they lack is the halos that EVERY other team has but if they keep polishing them in front of the Pats during games, maybe an unsportsmanlike penalty will be called. Did I miss anything Patriots haters?

    the onfield shooting incident during the 2001 superbowl

  108. mrhappy2000 says: Dec 19, 2010 10:57 PM

    1historian is right – the Pasterisks “dominance” isn’t ending anytime soon with Goodell an the league firmly in their corner (as evidenced by his public appearance tonight in Kraft’s box).

  109. bostonbias says: Dec 20, 2010 2:29 PM

    Typical Pat fans….the kings of the double standard. It is ok for us, but not for any other team. No one has more a sense of self-righteousness in the world than the fans of the Pats.

  110. marinephinfan says: Dec 20, 2010 5:21 PM

    Belicheat attempted to gte in the way of Harrison and then tried to trip him. All of you idiots trying to say that it didn’t happen must be blind or retarded. It’s right there on the video. lol

    The patriots will always been known for cheating their way to 3 Super Bowl wins and then choking away a perfect season to a 10-6, 17th ranked Giants defense. HAHAHAHAHAH!!

  111. tomlovestroy says: Dec 23, 2010 1:53 AM

    Wow…The Patriots taking a page from the Bill Clinton Defense fund. None of this is new with this story. We all new this. Actually no we didn’t. Obviously, it is a HEAD coach interfering with the actual events of an opposing player in a game. It is NOT a Strength/Conditioning coach. Therefore this is MUCH worse.

    However, lets ask Tom Brady to rule on this. I am sure we can come up with a Tuck rule of some kind.
