The proposed Pats stadium was going to where the old Hartford Power Plant was and after Pats dumped CT a exposition center was built.
The football stadium that was built is Renchellier (sp) the home of UCONN football. That field is built on Pratt & Whitney property in East Hartford. Nice facility, easy in and out.

We did the cheap Fenway tix Pats games also. That was a blast.

The Pats played absolutely dreadfully tonight.

If this is what the rest of the country puts up with, it's a wonder anybody watches football at all.

Having watched eight consecutive wins up to this point this season is no consolation for sitting through tonight's debacle.

I may have loved pro football as a young kid, but I don't even like it now. What I've been liking is the Patriots mashing the rest of the league. Sitting through three hours of football to see a loss is unacceptable, and sitting through a loss like this one is well beyond that.

To make matters worse, the Ravens are a traditionally cheap shot committing team that I particularly hate, I hate their stupid coach, and their uniforms look more like costumes.  I can't begin to say how much I loathe Ray Lewis.  But the Ravens played a squeaky clean game tonight and flat out kicked our asses. And with an amateurish running quarterback to boot.

This was just horrible.  That's three hours I'll never get back. I could have been watching Foyle's War or Father Brown reruns. I love that English s***.  Their food isn't fabulous, but I did find a bistro or two where I enjoyed meals.  I wish their immigration laws weren't so tough.  MF-ing Patriots.   I might as well have watched Arsenal play Liverpool. It would be like watching paint dry but still more entertaining than the Pats were tonight.

The Bruins are doing well but I don't care much about hockey or basketball.  When do the Red Sox pitchers and catchers report to Fort Myers?  They suck, and will suck worse next season after cutting payroll, but at least I like baseball. I'm old enough to have watched Ted Williams play. His batting stroke was the physical manifestation of the theoretical ideal. Much like Brady's passing form and defense reading before he became a premature geriatric. On some plays, dementia wasn't clearly out of the question either.

Rant over. I'm too old to punch holes through drywall anymore. At least I think I am. There's a lot of it between my man cave and my bedroom so all bets are off.

As a Bills fan of 38 years I’d like to offer a friendly reminder that it’s just a game

New England / Boston teams have won plenty in the past two decades. Ye shall overcome.

Constantly whining about how you don't care about football and will stop following the Patriots once Brady is done is pretty sad. 

Perhaps find something you can enjoy without worrying about it being something you can gloat about only when it's advantageous for you

What in the world would be the point of that,  jlukes?

Gloating after Pats championships has gotten better and better as the rest of the country hates them ( and consequently us) more and more. 

Football in general is tragic quadriplegia waiting to happen,

but Patriots football is an opportunity to flout our Eastern elitist provincialism! 

I'm all for abolishing football after the Patriots Dynasty is finally over. What purpose would it then serve?

... Oh I agree, Nifty is not a Troll in general, just quite obviously a Pats Troll. A Troll posts something knowing it is unreasonable just to get a rise out of others.

As a Dolphins fan since August 16th, 1965, I agree.  Except for a handful of years in the early 70's and the Marino era, my rooting and celebrations has pretty much been seeing "the perfect season" left unmatched.  Only one to go this year (thank you Baltimore!)... did you hear that San Francisco? 😁

I still can't believe Jim Kelly went to the big show that many times w/o a win.  He deserved better.

He really did...the positive was that it truly was a fun time to be a Bills fan.  The 90’s matchups against Miami were so great to watch.

As a lifelong Dolphins fan I'm ready for someone to put the undefeated season thing to bed.  Half of that '72 team is (literally) dead already anyway.  The other half can't remember any of it anyway.

Having sat in the Orange Bowl and Joe Robbie for years watching Griese, Marino, Csonka, and so many other talents come and go I've completely lost interest in what remains of the Miami Dolphins franchise.  A once consistent winner has turned into competing with the Jets for the worst team in the league year in and year out.

I've grown to respect what New England has accomplished over the past 20 years.  I can't stand it, but I respect it.  Sunday nights loss is just another blip on the radar for the Patriots.  They'll ultimately learn from the loss and end up in the Super Bowl again, probably against San Francisco or Green Bay.  The consistency with which New England dominates not only the AFC East, but the AFC in general should be respect and appreciated honestly, because they are doing things that will be hard to ever be matched by anyone in the future.  It's even more amazing in the age of free agency how that franchise continues to just reload and plow through everyone year in and year out.

I do think that the Ravens have given something of a blueprint for how to beat the Patriots.  Loading the box up with 3 tight ends, and two running backs, and going with the triple option isn't something we see very often.  And it simply exposed the Patriots in their small weakness.  They are built to stop the pass, and can't account for that many running options in a single play.  But like Belichick always does, if anyone decides to try and duplicate that play calling, the next team won't be able to pull it off.  We saw that years ago when Miami pulled out the Wildcat and destroyed the Patriots one day in Foxboro.  Only to see anyone else who tried that fail.  You might be able to beat him once, but Belichick simply adjusts and adapts to whatever is thrown at him and conquers when it counts.  I've just seen this show too many times to expect anything else to happen.

What that says is that should the Patriots meet the Ravens in the playoffs, the Ravens better hope they come up a new wrinkle not expected, because if they try what they did last night again, they will lose, and it won't even be close.

That's the measure of a hall of fame coach and a team that continues to win, and overcome all challengers and makes it look easy in the process.

Like I've been saying for the past 6+ years or so.  Just give New England the trophy in August and spare everyone the waste of time playing a bunch of meaningless games that ultimately end up with the same team coming out on top every single year - at least in the AFC anyway.

Not me.  Belichick and Co. have more asterisks next to season records than noodles in box of Kraft macaroni & cheese.  Huge $$$ market teams is what makes most pro sports uninteresting to me - and why I really like pro golf.  Who knows, maybe a future Dolphins team will be the one to match the record 👍

I don’t know - when you consider how football works everyone should have an asterisk - holding could often be called on plays - a hold here, a hold there, not called? That impacts the outcome of a game every bit as much as what New England may or may not have done.

There’s only an asterisk if you don’t like them IMO. They epitomize footballs spirit which is to play to the edge and let the refs decide.

College basketball starts this week - I’m happy about that and looking forward to the NFL draft next June to see if the Giants can get out of this hole they’ve been in during my lifetime or before the NFL goes away - which ever comes first.

It's a wee bit more than holding calls and no, I don't care for Belichick & Co.  For me, the only thing meaningful for the rest of this season is the 49er's losing a game.  That'll be equivalent to the Dolphins winning the Superbowl. 🤗
