The only reason I brought this up was just my sharing of what happened to me yesterday. I was just making my observations based upon the game. I had/have no idea that the Pats fans generally have a bad reputation in the sports world? I had no idea prior to right now, reading they are compared to Yankees fans, that they do have a bad rep? I don't follow sports as much as you all, I really am just a Chargers fan, but I don't really follow the rest of the NFl that much.

But, based on my own experience with the Pats fans yesterday, if they do have a bad reputation, then I must say, based on how they behaved yesterday
2 points:

1. Don't believe it gospel that Pats fans are similar to Yankee fans just because Chizip, who is still bitter about the Pats beating the Rams and the Red Sox sweeping the Cards says so. Thats like saying you're sure the war in Iraq and the collateral damage of innocent children is what God wants cause GWB says so.

B. Answer this question honestly: Were there any Charger fans at Qualcomm Sunday who may have been drunk and/or obnoxious towards the Pats fans?
I'm guessing just as high a percentage of the SD fans were acting in this type of manner as Pats fans, but because you're a Charger fan you leave that part of the equation out. Obviously the Pats fans would make comments to you and the other Charger fans, which seems to upset you...but are you saying the Charger fans just took it and didn't respond in kind? C'mon now.

i have not had biased relations with that team, the boston red sox. I never told anybody to lie, not a single time; never. These allegations are false. And I need to go back to work for the American people.

Did you see this one where LT blames the coach for guys with 'no class?'

i don't want to see anything more about ladanian tomlinson.

i've lost a lot of respect for the guy... if you want to complain that the pats shouldn't have taunted at th end of the game and weren't classy in doing so? fine... but you can't then say in your same argument that they weren't being classy because "that's shawne merriman's dance."

to steal a thought from mike and mike in the morning... tomlinson said that the end of game taunting is "bad for the kids." i'd love for someone to ask tomlinson if he'd like it if pop warner football players would do the "lights out" dance after sacking a QB?

you can't be OK with a taunt when it's your own guy doing it, but not OK with it when it's the other team. you're either for it the whole way or against it the whole way. there is no inbetween.

Good point. I never can stand hypocrisy.

And a final somewhat Charger related thought...
I just had to dodge lightning bolts as:

A. Deion Sanders was the voice of reason.
2. Headache and U2Kitten just saw eye to eye.

The apocalypse can't be far behind, maybe this is the year Peyton makes the Superbowl...and the Cubs win the World Series...and another horse wins the triple crown...

Well, you weren't asking me, but since I was at the game as well, I can answer this question.

The majority of fans at the game from both sides were well-behaved, though there were of course exceptions. During the game, one Pats fan in the section next to mine was escorted from the game in handcuffs, and in my section were a handful of Pats fans (males in their 20s, slightly inebriated) who were acting obnoxiously.

I can say, however, that after the game ended, I did not see one Patriots fan taunting a Chargers fan about the loss. Not one. The only time I saw Pats fans talking to Chargers fans after the game, it was to congratulate them on a tough game. And I took the train to the game, so I was waiting in line and standing in the train for at least 45 minutes with a bunch of fans from both teams. I did, however, see a few Chargers fans screaming vulgarities at the Pats fans as they were leaving (annoying, but standard). And when I got off the train with my buddy at the Hazard Center, a Chargers fan (probably very drunk) who also got off the train there started screaming at me specifically as we were walking back to our car. I was perhaps a couple hundred feet in front of him, and I did not bother to acknowledge him, which of course was the proper thing to do. He started screaming at me again, I guess because he thought I was giving him a smug attitude by refusing to reply.
