Belichick The Arrogant

NEW ORLEANS --  New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick basically stuck out his middle finger to the other 31 coaches in the NFL Tuesday.

How else can you explain his not attending a supposedly mandatory media breakfast here at the NFL league meetings?

The other 31 coaches all showed up, some probably a bit reluctantly, but not Belichick.

And word is the league will do nothing about it.

He's bigger than the game. Didn't you know? There is no arguing that Belichick is a great coach. But does that mean he gets to adhere to his own rules?

I can tell you this: Several coaches were more than aware that he wasn't there and weren't thrilled that they had to be and he wasn't there.

I just hope one of them has the guts to call him out on it. Rib him about it.

"So your time is more valuable than ours?" they should say.

Why wouldn't you? He's just a peer, even if he sometimes acts like he isn't.

This is just another way of Belichick showing his arrogance. It's like when he pushed that photographer a couple of years ago. Or when he got caught in Spygate.

Rules are for fools?

Too bad the biggest fool Tuesday was the guy who doesn't follow them.

Priscoe and the idiots here crying about Belichick missing a breakfast which in fact it wasn't mandatory, but Priscoe would lead you to believe it was. So what he never goes so copy and paste this article for next year and the year after etc...

Belichick The Arrogant

Why anyone went into an article with the title "Belichick the Arrogant" and expected a hard news story is beyond me....so stop complaining, that said he should get in trouble. Any other coach or player that skipped a media day would get yelled at or fined. Everyone got mad when Lebron didn't talk to the media after his game, so why do you treat anyone else differently? Unless there was a legitimate reason that he cleared with whoever was running the event, he should at least be "scolded." I mean, the media isnt the most fun thing for a coach to do, but they are doing their job, and talking to them is part of his.

ANGRY FOR THE ASTERISKS

His behavior is like the little boy caught cheating, and then can't produce the same results when forced to adhere to the rules.  The fact remains:  Belicheat and his team haven't won a legitimate super bowl, have not won a championship since they were caught cheating.  An 18-1 season without the ring is meaningless (49ers and Bears had 18-1 seasons capped by super bowl wins).  The cheaters won three super bowls by a total of nine points, which is a disgrace because without the cheating, this thin margin disappears.  Belicheat and his cover girl quarterback will never win another, and fans outside of new england understand the three asterisks...

The media has been kissing his behind for years so does his arrogance surprise anyone?  Prisco sounds like a lover scourned.  Get over it,  if I was a head coach I would want to skip too because the media is half retarded.

I am not a Belichick or patriots fan but I don't blame the guy.
