    Bill Belichick is being called out for his antics. I like this 2013, things are looking up.


    New England coach Bill Belichick doesn't handle losing all too well, and he blew off CBS' customary postgame interview with the coach of the losing team after the AFC championship game.
    CBS analyst Shannon Sharpe wasn't impressed and called him out for it with some harsh comments.
    "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."
    [Also: Florio: Where will Alex Smith land next season?]
    Those are strong words from Sharpe, but it's tough to argue. There are certain unpleasant commitments that come with being an NFL head coach, and a certain class that should be displayed in defeat. Granting an interview that coaches are expected to give after big playoff losses, including Super Bowls, to a television partner that pays a big percentage of the NFL's bills is part of that.
    Instead of Belichick, CBS was given Patriots safety Devin McCourty to talk to after the game. While McCourty handled himself like a professional and praised the Ravens, that's far from a fair trade. Belichick could have stood up and answered fair questions about why he decided to punt at the Ravens' 35-yard line and later the Ravens' 34 in two instances of a very conservative approach, and also how the Patriots mismanaged the clock at the end of the first half and missed out on taking a shot at the end zone before kicking a field goal.
    Belichick has a history of acting like this after losses, most notably walking off the field with a second left in Super Bowl XLII against the Giants, a move that made him look like a sore loser. We'll see if NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has a fine waiting for Belichick after he stiff-armed CBS following this loss. - Frank Schwab of Yahoo Sports

    I have no idea how it wasn't unsportsman like conduct.

    It was honestly like a red flag worthy slide-tackle in soccer.

    If the Bills play their cards right, re-sign our own (Byrd and Levitre), draft a high quality QB and LB, we won't have to wait for the Pats to get worse, because we will be in a position to get better... a lot better... but as reasonable as that all sounds, I feel like that's asking for too much... because its still the bills

    yup. I hope it's changing.. but Belicheck has ALWAYS been like that since the Pats started being successful. When they lose, he refuses interviews (except the one that the NFL requires). Would be nice to see them start to slide

    Me neither but the point was made by @Plutonian, the Bills need to just worry about getting better, not waiting for NE to get worse

    I saw it live out of the corner of my eye, my first thought was that it might've been Pollard and a revenge attack.

    Regardless of who it was against, it was dangerous and I would eject players for it. It's cowardly.

    Apparently the Bills were gracious in defeat.
    Its only OTA's
    Its only mini-camp
    Its only training camp
    Its only preseason
    Its only week 1, its a 16 week season.
    But if the Bills don't beat the Dolphins week 2, batten down the hatches, it will get ugly.

    And I fear yesterday pissed Belicheat off. When he's angry, he's motivated. When he's motivated, God help us.

    Because it was Brady and not Suh who did it. Not hard to figure out.
