Did you, like everyone did, Antonio Brown capturing Mike Tomlin calling the New England Patriots “assholes?”
Another thing that made me laugh was sports media’s outrage at the various comments.
Hell, everyone in the AFC calls the Patriots assholes. Mostly because they have dominated the conference for the past 15 years. The Baltimore Ravens brought up deflated footballs to the Indianapolis Colts. The Jets constantly gun for the Patriots through their media supporters and the NFL front office. The Broncos sign players who used to play for New England in their efforts to topple them. The Raiders will detest them forever due to Tuck Rule. The Chargers were probably the best team on two occasions where they lost in the AFC playoffs. And now, here are the Steelers, a team stopped at least twice enroute to the Super Bowl by New England.
The Patriots are assholes. Really, really good assholes. Get used to it, along with them winning. Get used to people hating them, a lot.
By the way, the Patriots are in the AFC championship game for the 6th time in a row. In their previous 5 times, they have gone on to win the Super Bowl once.
Winning Super Bowls is really, really hard.
And BSP isn’t even going into the realm of Antonio Brown videotaping in the locker room. That whole thing gets into Rat Hall of Fame territory.
