In 2 weeks, the patriots will play in what feels like their 100th Super Bowl-and its a sign competitive balance is a Problem. Point blank, the Patriots have become the New York Yankees of the NFL-and its irrelevant if Patriots fans hate the comparison.
We live in an age where “Any Given Sunday” is just a mantra giving false hope to teams like Cleveland. That’s nothing anyone should be celebrating. Period.
Constantly blaming the Press for the Pats’ image is nothing more of a paranoid cop-out cop-outfrom the teams’ fan-base. And it’s not about being a “hater”. In the ’40s, a pro football league collapsed because one team got too dominant.
The NFL is just becoming pro football’s answer to Major League Baseball-and that’s nothing to party about.
