They don't care at all. It is all about winning at any cost.
What do you do with your analysis ?

Respect the focus on winning, and winning ?

Or, we don't want it. Our moral winning is higher than our losers bracket ?

Anthony Lynn at 4-6 before the 2017 Thanksgiving game in Dallas:
"I am not afraid of the big picture. Coaches preach about a game at a time, and, of course, that is correct. But I want our team to know that everything is in front of them."

To quote an old racing expression "If you ain't cheatin', you ain't tryin'"

many years ago Junior Johnson had this to say about his creativity when it came to building cars:

"They'd tell me it was illegal, I'd plead guilty, and they'd carry it away thinking they caught me. But they didn't check some other things that I thought were even more special."

A Jets fan took the NFL to court on that. They decreed that it was entertainment.

What did you think it was?

All sports are entertainment.

Dangerous rabbit hole to go digging in.

Here's the complete Cheatriot Cheat List: https://yourteamcheats.com/NE
Don't forget they also got caught misusing the weekly injury reports as well which included putting players on the report who often had no real injury. Can't remember the exact time but they had Brady on the injury report ever week for somewhere around two full seasons, maybe more even though most weeks he had no injury at all.

They are near invincible at home... might be something fishy with the mics? Not sure. They also get the benefit of almost every grey call on the field. They get PIs on minimal contact... they get personal fouls on Brady when he is slapped on the shoulder. The AFC Championship Game this year was the highest rated show ever outside of last years Super Bowl... They got a 75% market share in New England... 3/4 of all TVs in that area were watching the game. You think the NFL and the Networks did not prefer for them to beat the Chargers?... the team with the least number of fans? I get more jaded as the years pass watching the uneven calls being made during these games... The NFL desperately wants the Rams to be the Lakers... The non-PI call will likely cause a rule change... but if the Rams win the Super Bowl...there will be no asterisk. And I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Chargers get even worse calls against us in years to come just to make it seem like the NFL doesn't favor the 2nd largest market. The battle for LA is over... the NFL and the media bias against us made sure of it.

This just makes it seem like fans of other AFC teams are jealous of NE's success, which is the case IMO. The fact the rest of the AFC has not been able to keep the Patriots out of the Super Bowl for three consecutive years is testament to Belichick's dominance over his contemporaries (that and he has Tom Brady). Nobody prepares better than Belichick's coaching staff and nobody executes better than Belichick's players. It's really that simple.

Unlike other sports, the WWE admits they're fake.
