Shannon Sharpe of CBS ripped Bill Belichick last night for being a "poor sport." After the game there is always an interview with the losing coach, an interview that Belichick did not do. So, Sharpe decides he needs to give his much-sought-out-for(sarcasm) opinion. Heres what he said:
"There's something to be said about being gracious in defeat," Sharpe said on CBS' postgame show. "We've seen the New England Patriots five times in the last 12 years be victorious [in the AFC championship game). We've seen the opposing coaches who lost come out and talk to our Steve Tasker. Coach [Bill] Cowher did it when they lost to them, we saw this last week. Bill Belichick makes it real easy for you to root against the Patriots. You can't be a poor sport all the time. You're not going to win all the time, and he does this every time he loses. It's unacceptable."
The thing that really ticks me off about his comment is the very end. Sharpe says its "unacceptable." Come on, are you serious? What the fuck do you know about coaching? Its Bill Belichicks frustration and desire to win that makes the Patriots so good every year. Sharpe says, "he does this everytime he loses." I don't have a problem with that. Patriots fans don't have a problem with that. It is the general sports fans and analysts that rip Belichick for something like this.

The talk about this now is that Bill will be fined by Roger Goodell. Now here is one thing I HATE about sports nowadays. The reason Belichick would be fined is because CBS lost money because the interview wasn't done. One small thing, like skipping an interview, is escalated because of the money involved.

Belichick is known for doing this, most recently against the Giants in last year's Super Bowl when he walked off the field with one second left. Something that causes an uproar, when in my eyes it shows he cares and still has that strong desire to be successful. What do you think? Talk with me on twitter @joeloobs
