Ready to hear the meaningless phrase “best team to never make the playoffs” thrown around for the next five decades, particularly by Bill Simmons? Ah yes, those New England Patriots, excuse me, “Greatriots” fans are outraged at being screwed out of a playoff spot, especially after beating all those tough teams from the West divisions! And, as with anything related to Boston sports, it’s more than an injustice. IT’S THE GREATEST FACKIN’ INJUSTICE OF THEM ALL! NO ONE DENIES THIS!

And now we get the disgusting spectacle of watching two .500 teams fight it out for an undeserved playoff berth in the AFC West. The Patriots should be going to the playoffs, it’s a disgrace that they’re not.

Yes, yes! That’s it! Cry. CRY THOSE BIG FAT TEE-AHS! Bitch like the constant complainers you always are and always have been!

NFL is a crock….letting teams in with a 500 record, really makes the playoffs more exciting, right?

Oh, God! Yes! More! I love it when you try and make it sound like everyone else finds your team endlessly compelling. How about a conspiracy theory?

If Wes Welker can get fined for making Snow Angels, why shouldn’t Brett Favre get find for throwing the most blatant interception in the history of the NFL, even if he does lead the league in all-time interceptions?????

That’ll do! Yes, Favre threw that pick specifically so you wouldn’t make the playoffs! And can we blame a black person for the whole thing now?

Nice job GAFFEney dropping the TD angainst the Colts. It cost us the season

STUPID DAHKIE! WELKAHHH WOULD HAVE CAUGHT THAT BALL!

This hate-on in my pants could very well burst my jean seams, I tell you. And how about using this occasion to completely dismiss Tom Brady?

The NFL is building a mediocre sport by letting teams with worse records go to the playoffs over real contenders. Does the NFL really think those playoff games with horrible teams will be exciting? *yawn*

Roger Goodell, Eric Mangini and Brett Favre all need to be swept out of the NFL – it couldn’t happen soon enough.

Great season, PATRIOTS! Congrats for making it exciting to watch. And to Matt Cassel for giving us hope. I wish you the best ~ Brady can sit out and get married in Costa Rica next season, for all I care. I’d prefer to see Cassel lead a healthy team and return us to the playoffs! Happy New Year!

I agree with you, GREATRIOT fans. WHAT HAS TOM BRADY DONE FOR YOU LATELY? I love it when you pretend to be the most loyal and intelligent fans in the nation, when the truth is you’re just a bunch of whiny, fair-weather fucksticks who think the goddamn Heavens revolve around you, and who overreact at any goddamn thing that happens.

But surely, some of the GREAT fans of CELTIC NATION appreciate the incredibly good fortune they’ve had over the past few years, and are ready to keep everything in perspective when it comes to this whole Tom Brady business, yes?…

TRADE BRADY!

Not what people want to hear but with all we see from Brady these days and with the success of Cassel it may be time for Pats fans to come to the realization that the Brady era is over and the Cassel era has begun.

It is ironic that Brady may lose his starting QB job with the Pats the same way that Bledsoe did…history repeats itself. Cassel is younger, stronger, more mobile, and can run the ball as well as any QB in the league. Brady obviously has the better leadership and intangibles, but Cassel will obtain those qualities with time. The Pats have found Brady’s replacement and they will let him walk? Doubtful. The Brady era will be cherished by New England fans forever…but that era is likely over. Accept and embrace the change….

I would sign Cassel long-term; trade Brady for future needs …. let Tom and Gisele get on with their lives. Brady will never return to what he once was … yet he will never be forgotten in NE !! I wish him well …. his name is GOLD in New England Sports History !!

It’s true, Tom! You will never be forgotten in Boston fan’s hearts. Except for right now.

For one last excerpt good dose of haterade, we turn to the always reliable Barstool Sports for enlightenment:

Honestly there needs to be an asterix next to this year’s Superbowl Champion because they didn’t go through us and we’re as good and as hot as anybody in the league right now. And 11-5 should get you in the playoffs every single year. That’s how the founding fathers intended it to be. It’s just not fair that the Cardinals, Eagles and either Broncos or Chargers will be in the post season and we won’t. The league has to take a hard look at this and figure out a solution to rectify this problem. And I’m not talking about for the future either. I’m talking about right fucking now! I don’t know whether that means declaring us the winner of the AFC East or creating a new playoff spot or what? But rules are made by human beings and human beings can break them when they spot an injustice and this is a friggin injustice. Seriously if the NFL wants this post season to be taken seriously then Goodell has to figure something out. If not this will just be like when the US boycotted the 1980 Olympics games. It will tarnish the entire competition because everybody knows they didn’t beat the best of the best. Is that what the country wants?

Yes, I believe so.

And you know why? BECAUSE FUCK YOU, THAT’S WHY. FUCK YOU AND YOUR GODDAMN MELODRAMATIC BULLSHIT. FUCK YOU FOR THINKING YOUR LOVE FOR YOUR TEAM IS SOMEHOW BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE’S. IT ISN’T. FUCK YOUR TOWN, FUCK YOUR HISTORY, AND FUCK YOUR MOTHERS. YOU AREN’T SPECIAL. YOU’RE JUST AS FUCKING STUPID AND IDIOTIC AS THE NEXT GROUP OF FANS AND DON’T YOU EVER FUCKING FORGET IT.

DIE.
