Sigh. The Patriots are no different than anyone else. Head coach Bill Belichick is human after all, and finally showed some emotion after the Sunday night's loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Unfortunately, The Hoodie was wrong in what he did, and most assuredly with face fines and/or a reprimand from the NFL. If you missed it, The Hooded One grabbed an official after the game Sunday, which can be seen below. This is obviously a big no-no, and Belichick knows better. Given his history with the league, it seems a layup to FVP that The Hoodie will be a little lighter in the pocket this week.As far as Spikes goes, he took his ******** to the Twitterverse, where he tweeted this gem, seen tot he left.  Awesome! I would wager this will cost him some cake too.

Bill Belichick Grabs Replacement Ref After Ravens Kick Controversial Field Goal (Video)

Bill Belichick lost his composure after Sunday's Patriots-Ravens game. It looked like Belichick wanted to confront the replacement officials about the lack of a challenge after Ravens kicker Justin Tucker just barely kicked the ball above the uprights. The rule, which Belichick surely knows by now, is that a ball through the uprights is challenge-able, a ball above the uprights...

Belichick has no reason to apologize

The moralizing and pontificating began as soon as Football Night In America cameras captured New England coach Bill Belichick running and grabbing a member of the officiating crew's arm in the chaotic aftermath of Sunday's Patriots-Ravens game. Media giddily tweeted: Get ready for a FedEx envelope, Billy. Tony Dungy lectured from his bully pulpit. Merits of a fine and...

Pats LB blasts 'Zebras' on Twitter

Brandon Spikes ripped the performance of the replacement refs during the Patriots-Ravens game, tweeting, "foot locker called and they're needed Back at work !!!!"

Bill Belichick grabbed a replacement ref after Sunday’s loss to the Ravens

Bill Belichick will undoubtedly hear from the NFL offices this week after he grabbed a replacement referee after the Patriots’ 31-30 loss to the Ravens. On Friday, we told you the league sent a memo to each team warning them that they would no longer tolerate anyone being anything other than nice to the replacement refs. And we’ll go out on a limb and say that grabbing a referee...

Bill Belichick grabs official after Patriots fall to Ravens

Everyone’s favorite Napoleon complex-stricken NFL coach, Bill Belichick, was at it again on Sunday night as his mounting frustration toward the NFL replacement officials finally boiled over in a pathetic post-game display of misguided anger. In a heated battle that was chippy from the opening whistle, the Patriots found themselves winning by two scores for most of the...

NFL News: New England Patriots LB Brandon Spikes takes to Twitter

After a last second loss to a bitter rival, I always expect the emotions of players on the losing team to be high. Then when you add to that with some terrible officiating, a costly penalty against you, and a 1-2 record, you end up with Brandon Spikes tweet. After losing to the Baltimore Ravens on a game winning field goal, New England Patriots LB Brandon Spikes came out and tweeted...

Pats’ Spikes tells ‘zebras’ to go back to Foot Locker

Capping off a wacky Week 3 of NFL action was perhaps the wackiest game of all between the Patriots and Ravens. Though largely entertaining, the primetime affair was marred by — what else — sloppy officiating, the maddening norm of the young season. The game culminated in a controversial Baltimore win, when kicker Justin Tucker kicked a field goal as time expired, barely squeezing...

More Patriots-Ravens reaction

As was to be expected sports radio was all about the Patriots and their second straight loss Sunday night. There were a bunch of different story lines that dominated the airwaves. Obviously the referees and how poorly the game was called was the lead story, but then there was also the Bill Belichick pushing an official following the game side of things, which got a lot more attention...

Brandon Spikes is pissed at the replacement refs

It's obvious that the replacement ref situation is really frustrating not only the fans, but also the NFL coaches and players. And the Patriots are starting to express it. Between Bill Belichick grabbing an official after the game and Brandon Spikes' profanity-laced Twitter post below, it's obvious that the situation is getting out of hand, and hopefully it will force...

Washington Redskins Offensive Coordinator Chases Down F*cking P*ssy Scab Ref

Washington Redskins Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan isn't as fast at Bill Belichick. Shanahan wasn't able to grab a scab ref -- he simply chased him out of the tunnel while verbally assaulting... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~

Thinking Back and Looking Ahead

Tomorrow night at M & T Bank Stadium the Ravens will host the Patriots for Week 3 of this early NFL season.  Most of the “experts” had this labeled as an early AFC Championship rematch, then during Week 2 both teams lost and set up a scenario in which the loser of this highly anticipated Sunday night tilt would drop below .500 and move to 1-2. Just to give you perspective...
