I leave Thursday evening. I brought my clubs and have only been able to touch them over the weekend. Frustrating as I was planning on a couple nights of just going to the range. Nope, stupid “study hall” each night. Ridiculous...

Not sure why you're so caught up on trying to dunk on me for literally no reason.

You're right!  Not an excuse but I wasn't feeling well yesterday and took some of my frustration out on you.  Again, not an excuse!  It is what it is.  My sincerest of apologies!

What I was trying to say is, it amazes me ESPN would offer to pay as much as they did knowing flex scheduling and Super Bowls were out of the question.  NBC got both for literally half what ESPN paid.

Purely from the perspective of a Patriots fan, I hate Monday, Thursday, and Sunday Night football.  I only watch the 16 (or usually more) Patriots games, and the Pats always get at least one game on each of those weird times.  I'd like every Patriots game to be on Sunday afternoon at either 1 or 4 PM.

It pisses me off how little the league cares about my convenience and preferences.  I'm not asking them to suspend those games if they find them profitable.  Just don't schedule the Pats at those times.  The national audience is sick of seeing them anyway.

As a boy in the 1950s, before the Patriots were founded, I was a Giants fan (my fingers actually cramp as I type that).   All the games were on Sunday afternoon with Chris Schenkel and Johnny Lujack.  You know how I react to change.

That sounds familiar. Also Giants fan and Pats as backup (never mentioned that to my Dad). Used to go to Giants and Pats games and at one time Pats tix were dirt cheap at the old cesspool Gillette Stadium.
Then Kraft starts his demands for a new stadium with Mass and negotiations stall and Kraft turns to CT. The CT legislature gives Kraft the land, stadium and everything he wants. Proposed stadium 15 minutes from my house, my Buds and I are all over this. Part of the deal is, I believe it was Kraft that a minimum of Season Tix needed to be sold(this is before land was even cleared) so me like thousands of other foolish dupes pony up the bucks, Mass blinks, Kraft gets his deal in Foxboro. Took a while to get over that.
Not sympathetic for Krafty.

I wasn't a Giants fan with Pats as backup.  I dropped the G-Men cold as they lost one NFL title game after another and I jumped onto the Pats full bore. 

It was a dago thing....the Pats had Parilli and Cappelletti, and I was all in--especially since tickets at Fenway Park were seven bucks. Even a college kid could afford that (although Red Sox bleacher tickets were only a buck).

By the time the Pats moved to Foxborough, I had lost interest in football altogether.  Then came Belichik and Brady. 

They built the stadium in Hartford anyway, Rickp, and the Huskies moved up to FBS level, leaving their campus stadium in Storrs.

UConn had a kicker named Dave Teggart Jr.  I used to play golf with his dad, Dave Sr., who'd been a kicker at UNH.  Dad was nearly a decade younger than I. We had some great games.

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

+1, I’m a Pats fan and the post above #1011 was completely tone deaf.

The Pats were flat last night and got off to a really bad start. Sanu and Edelman (despite rare fumble) played well, but the others were streaky including Brady and the whole defense. And like Belichick said, Lamar Jackson is “a problem” - he’s quite a player. But the undefeated pressure is off, and the Pats seems to bounce back strong when they’re disappointed. I don’t think they have a SB winning team this year, but I’m on record saying they didn’t last year either. The more people talk them down, the tougher they are, so I hope the talking heads start saying Brady is too old again...

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.
