bd71 Posted July 3, 2015 Share Posted July 3, 2015 What are the comparables? I'm genuinely curious why you think this and even want it to be true. I'll take the winning but not the way the Patriots have.Belichick was on his third stretch of being a head coach (although he never actually coached a game for the Jets) when he started with the Pats and hadn't had a lot of success prior. Belichick screwed over the Jets to take the job and the Pats ended up having to give the Jets a first round pick. Belichick then received a $500,000 fine in 2008 for spy-gate and lost another first round pick. Again this year the Pats were heavily punished for cheating and lost their first for 2016 and fourth for 2017 and Brady for four games.That's just what they have been publicly admonished for. There is all kinds of speculation that the cheating goes much deeper. Read "Spygate The Untold Story" for more details.The stats on the Pats is troubling. The fumble stats since the rule changes on ball inflation defy reality. Home win stats etc.I want the Canucks to have solid character but in no way would I want them to carry themselves like Belichick or the Pats have over the years.But this is not to discourage your posting.
