I dont understand how people can be Canucks fans then also cheer for a team from a city that we loathe here in Vancouver, I just dont get it

I grew up as a Pats fan as well as a Canucks fan. Just because one team is based in a city where I despise, doesn't mean I have to hate every team in their city. It's like saying I hate the Chicago Bears, Cubs, White Sox, and Bulls because I hate the Blackhawks. That's a stupid reason to hate a team because I hate one team from a city with multiple sports teams

The NFL.... minus the Ravens.

And the Giants.

When I meant dominating, I meant by overall record and appearances in the playoffs. Tell me, how many championship appearances do the Ravens and Giants have since 2001? Oh that's right, five. Combined. Pats have played in 7.

Perhaps this has something to do with a general dislike for the team you cheer for. Your team lost, got beat bad, and you still go on and on about how great they are.

People just hatin their team is shat while the Patriots have been dominating the NFL for 12 years.

And people seriously wonder why the Patriots are disliked? Their fans are arrogant.

Also, saying the Patriots have "dominated" for 12 years is silly since their last SB was 8 years ago. The Steelers and the Giants have both won 2 SBs since the last Patriots win.

People don't get awards for playing in championship games, Rex has 2 in 4 years with Sanchez. Means nothing unless you win the SB.

If the Patriots ever want to win another SB in the near future they need to go all in next year.

Sign a legit WR. Bowe, Wallace, and Jennings are all free agents.

Sign a coupe of pass rushers. Avril and Umenyiora?

They need an all-star corner too.

However, given Bellichick's track record. He won't go out and spend the big bucks and the Patriots will have the same results.

I didn't watch the game but the score says it all. I can talk all I want about how great the Patriots are because it's a given fact. Sorry if I'm giving off the wrong vibe but honestly, the stats don't lie. I only watched the 1st Quarter but after that, it seemed like we were being handed to by the Ravens

I don't wonder why people hate us. I wonder why people love the fact that we lose when their team won a game only a couple weeks back.

Yup. They've had a top 10 offence for near a decade. They haven't had a top 10 defence since the perfect* season. They haven't been better than 25th in yards allowed in 3 years.

I agree. We can't rely on random out of the blue receivers anymore. Deion Branch needs to go. We can't keep bringing him back. Brandon Lloyd needs to go. The man literally catches the ball and then goes to the ground. Welker can stay. Edelman can stay. Our defence needs an all star back. Last one we had was Harrison and since then, we've gone on a youth movement. I don't mind McCourty and Chung, but we need that one CB/safety to be that one reliable defender that can shut down top receivers week after week. I still wish we still had Asante Samuel but what can you do...

edit: lol we signed Shaun Ellis last year and he didn't do jack for us at all

That last sentence makes little sense.

Pretty much sums up Patriots fan ... how can you not watch the game and call yourself a fan?

The fact is the Patriots haven't won a Superbowl since 2005.

How does that sum up being a Patriots fan? I watch all Pats games whenever I can. I was heading to the Canucks game tonight so I couldn't watch it.

I'm sure you miss some Jets games or Canucks games and you still call yourself a fan. You don't HAVE to watch every single game to be called "a fan".

Missing a game here or there is not a HUGE deal, even though there are only 16 regular season and they're usually on Sundays. But missing the second biggest game of the season is a pretty big deal, especially if you're missing it to go watch an early regular season hockey game.

I spent good money to watch hockey. I'm not going to show up an hour late and miss the 1st period of action. Your reasons are unjustifiable when it comes to reasons why people miss games.

Umm, you could easily sell the tickets? It's a pretty big game to miss. I'd understand a week 2 or 3 game. But the AFC Championship game? Come on dude.

Seriously? You've got nothing to do except rag on one football fan for missing a conference game because he bought tickets to a game locally? And my friend bought the poweplay pak and I was going with him. Honestly, you're going to rag on someone for missing a game. Get over yourself

Oh, I'm totally over myself. Seriously, I am.
