As Tom Brady Baggins prepares to take the field this weekend, he is no doubt weighed down heavily by his fraudulent Superbowl rings and the comment made recently by NFL legend Don Shula:
Dave Hyde of the Sun-Sentinel writes in a profile of Shula at the age of 85 that when the subject of Belichick came up, that unflattering nickname was Shula’s response.
“Beli-cheat?” Shula says. <NBC Sports, link>
The NFL and its media enablers would like us all to pretend, along with them, that the Patriots’ Superbowl “wins” were legitimate, and comments like this from the likes of Don Shula burst the bubble of fantasy, if only briefly.
But make no mistake: Commissioner Roger Goodell destroyed the Patriots cheating tapes, a Richard Nixon-like admission of guilt that the cheating was profoundly damning and apparently bad enough to cast doubt over three Superbowls — something he must have felt he could not allow.
But in doing so, he put the nail in the coffin of Patriots legitimacy.
Tom Brady and Bill Bellichick are con-artists who have never won a Superbowl. Their record to date is 0 – 2 and 3 disqualifications. Let’s give them credit for 5 Superbowl appearances, even though three were the result of cheating, but let’s also admit that the Patriots are no better than the Buffalo Bills, who went 0 – 4 in Superbowls contested.
Brady & Co. will lose again, because the fraudulent rings must be given back before the curse can be lifted from their cheating souls.
