Do not ask Julian Edelman for Super Bowl tickets

This is the week when friends and families of the teams in the Super Bowl are scrambling, trying to make their way to Arizona, and trying to put their hands on tickets.

Of course, Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman might not have many friends, after the way he rebuffed ticket requests the last time he was in the game.

I’m a pretty big a-hole to all my friends and family,” Edelman said, via Phil Perry of CSNNE.com. “They know that. When it’s football time it’s football time.”

Saying no to the loved ones is difficult, and can be a time-consuming process. But Edelman said that when he went in 2011 for the first time, he learned in a hurry that being abrupt was the quickest way to end the distraction, and get on to the work at hand.

“I think you want to make the process as familiar as possible to what you’re used to by going out and preparing like you try to do everyday,” Edelman said. “Going in the hot tub, the cold tub, getting your treatment every day. It’s gonna be a little different.

“Usually the team that can handle that stuff the best is usually the team that comes out with a win.”

Of course, being a grouch doesn’t necessarily guarantee results (though Bill Belichick’s not taking any chances with that one), but having experience dealing with some of the ancillary issues can’t hurt.

  1. You guys won’t be able to video tape the Seahawks signals nor will you be able to deflate the balls to give you an advantage. Advantage Seahawks.

  2. Might as well get them the tickets Edelmam ; no one wants to pay that much to watch you lose …

    GO HAWKS !!

  3. what do you expectout of a 7th round pick as a qb from Kent State. My favorite player on the team . I remember back at training camp in July telling my wife and kids hes first one on field last one off and always working out to get better on sidelines. He stood out bigtime …….Glad hes on my team…….

  4. Why does he have to be such a jerk to his family? Lets see who is taking care of his azz when he is 80 and really needs help. Remember those tickets your mama asked you for???

    Imagine if Tebow had set aside his abnormally large ego and tried to play a different position?

  6. Apparently the end of the NFC Championship wiped Seahawks fan’s memories. Your QB didn’t throw a touchdown until OT and was picked off 4 times.

  7. yourbassist, you’re right. I can’t believe Seahawks fans would have ANY confidence in their team right now. I mean Russell Wilson had a horrible game (and he totally didn’t have anything to do with their coming back) and no QB has ever played well the week after having a bad game. I mean Geez…what has that Russell Wilson guy ever done to warrant them having that kind of faith in him?!?!?!

  8. “I think you want to make the process as familiar as possible to what you’re used to by going out and preparing like you try to do everyday,”

    So, he never gets tickets for any game for friends and family? If that’s the case I guess I can understand him keeping that philosophy for the Super Bowl. But the rest of the article seems to suggest he only stiffs everybody for the Super Bowl. If it’s all about keeping things the same as always why would he do that?

  9. Oh no the 12th bandwagon fans are out in force down voting Pats post. Don’t worry there are more up votes and the bandwagoners will just leave while throwing trash on everyone.

  10. granadafan , us Seahawk “bandwagon fans” will be at the game in force , by the endless thousands . How ’bout you ? Remember what happened first play from scrimmage in last year’s Superbowl ? Get ready for a whole lot more of that ..

    12’s will raise the roof !! GO HAWKS !!

  11. won’t be able to video tape the Seahawks signals

    Unless they want to, as it’s legal from press box level.

    All of you complaining about rules don’t even understand what the rules are.

  12. The Patriots and the Packers were the two best teams in the league. The Patriots will win by three touchdowns, easily.

    The 12th man? What twelfth man? Half the stadium got up and left when they couldn’t bear to watch the Packers totally dominate their “unbeatable” team any longer.

    Artificial noise and artificial fans. You’ve been exposed. Your coaches out coached the Green Bay coaches, I will give them credit.

    The fans? No credit deserved or given. Count your blessings and get off your high horse.

  13. Rex Ryan is selling Bills SB tickets right now out of the back of a running van.

    Down by the river !

    Lowest class team in the league. Another Super Bowl trophy can’t mask the stench coming from people like Bellichick, Blount and this guy.

    Hate on chevetteman, vancouversportsbra, if you knew anything about football, you’d understand that the versatility and work ethic that this guy brings to every game, would be a welcome addition to any football team.

  16. Stellarperformance

    Were you at the game, or do you let deadspin do all your thinking for you? About 3K fans left, and a lot of those were wearing green and gold. I was there until the confetti. The rest of your spew doesn’t even warrant response.

  17. If the Packers were the better team you’d think they would have been able to finish. Football games are 60 minutes long, “Stellar”, in case you were unaware.

    Got a paypal account? If you are really confident that the Pats win by 3 TD’s I would LOVE to take your action.

  18. As another poster alluded, there’s probably people close to Edelman who know they’re going to be getting tickets. It’s the people who are on the outer circle who don’t have a chance.

  19. As if the whole universe hasn’t already seen enough NE or Seahawk game films to be ready by 2/1. I just wonder how often he’ll be ineligible and on the line.

  20. Kam gonna say hi in a couple weeks. Edelman will go in a shell.

    Ask Demeryius how it felt last year.
