New England doesn't need to learn anything about "humble". We can see humble from here.

Why would anyone pay for a stolen ring?

When you cheat your way to victory, I consider it stealing.

Either way, good for Cherry.

I wouldn't have a problem with this if those orphanages that did all that great stuff for kids also forced Christianity down their throat.

Good for him to be a good person and do something with what he has for others. But don't save them from a horrific life just to save them for Jesus; do it to save them for being human and deserving better.

Then I'm confused. Why did the league take away the Pats first round pick?

New England sports fans, even the douchiest, tardiest of them, will learn humility if and only if one thing happens: all of their teams go back to sucking.

Don't worry, this could happen fairly soon.

And don't act like your city wouldn't be the same way.

Nah. The Pats have had plenty of abysmal, basement memories that aren't so far removed from fans older than their teens. The great thing about FA and 'parity' is that humility will eventually visit all. For example: I spent the Campo years going, "Bwaaahahahahahaha!"

With that threadjack out of the way, I was really touched by this article. You usually associate a transaction involving SB rings with utter failure like drugs or some other idiot form of bankruptcy.

Because like anything else in this world, certain people are used to make an example. The Pats were it. If you go back to the whole fiasco, players from other teams were quoted as saying EVERYONE tapes, no one says anything about it - it just happens. Mangina decided to be a self-righteous, sanctimonious prick, and pick on the Patriots.

Whatever. If it helps the douche sleep at night for essentially going "Neener-neener-neeener" to the Pats, fine by me.

I'm over it, the NFL is over, the rest of the world is over it, except for subby and you, apparently.

Because you seem to have the memory and brain of a fruit fly, I'll just tell you that in the '90s sports in Boston was crap. No team was winning championships, especially the Celtics who sunk so low they tanked games to try and get Tim Duncan in the draft. And that worked out well, eh?

The Pats sucked even with Drew Bledsoe, the Red Sox were the Red Sox (losers, 1918, etc.) and the Bruins were under the cheap thumb of Jeremy Jacobs. How was NY teams doing during the 90s? Oh yeah, the Yanks dominated, the Rangers finally broke a 54 year Stanley Cup Drought, and the Knicks were pretty good. Oh, and the Giants won in the 91 Superbowl.


New Yorkers. Whiners of the East Coast.

Show me a team whose second round QB can pick up where the star first round QB left off.

Can't go by that table. If you break it down, it is really by division, and not by strength of opponent.

12 of bottom 13 make up 3 divisions (AFC East, West, and NFC South)

12 of top 12 make up 3 divisions as well (AFC North, South, NFC North)

Pats have played Jets twice, Indy, and Pitt upcoming... Miami is no slouch either, and same with Denver. Not to mention playing SD in SD, and Arizona in a couple of weeks.

I wouldn't call that a cupcake schedule

I love how easily his accomplishments are dismissed. Remember, the Patriots don't exist in a vacuum. There are a ton of NFL teams who fail to do this year in and year out.

Every team plays two divisions outside of their own. This year the two divisions the Pats (and the rest of the AFC East) play are the AFC West and the NFC West.

That is half their 16 game season spent against the two worst divisions in football.

That is as cupcake as a schedule gets this year.

Based on last year's records. Miami is nothing like the 1-15 team they were last year, and the Jets are a serious contender and not a joke. They play those teams two times each.

Oh yes. It's clearly an easy schedule, but not as easy as it looked before the season started.

However, it should not be viewed as a simple explanation of the Patriots' relative success. The Pats being a couple bounces from 9-2 (or 8-3, depending on your views of their chances in games where Gaffney dropped a sure TD vs. Indy and if they won the coin toss in OT against the Jets).

I don't care who you root for:

If your team is winning, fans of other teams think you are a douchebag
If your team is losing, you think you will never be as douchebaggy as the fans of the team that is winning.

that being said New England fans are douchebags! When the Packers won the superbowl i was never as douchebaggy as them.

500 tickets.

I'm a Pats fan and this will complete my charity budget for '08. It would be quite a gesture if the winner returned the ring to Cherry. Not that I would not do that ever.
