Immediately following the Patriots loss to the Ravens, New England head coach Bill Belichick opted not to speak with CBS sports, Steve Tasker. Analyst Shannon Sharpe didn’t appreciate the gesture and went in on Belichick during CBS’ post game coverage.     There’s something to be said about being gracious in defeat,” Sharpe said on CBS’ postgame show, via USA Today. “We’ve seen the New England Patriots five times in the last 12 years be victorious. And we’ve seen the opposing coaches that lost come out and speak to our Steve Tasker. Coach (Bill) Cowher (Houston Texans head coach) did it when they lost. We saw this last week (when the Patriots beat the Texans). “Bill Belichick makes it very easy for you to root against the Patriots. You can’t be a poor sport all the time. You’re not going to win every time. And he does this every time he loses. It is unacceptable.”   It should be noted that Belichick did appear on the podium for the postgame conference. Sharpe raised a lot of great points however. What do you think? Is Bill Belichick guilty of poor sportsmanship?
