Because Belichick has a history of being a douchebag, whereas Gibbs does not.

Which of course has to be interpreted as whining. Can't win sometimes.

Q: Why does the media care if Belichick and Mangini have it out?

A: Because they used to work together. Promoting rivalries between two coaches on very familiar terms is good for ratings.

I think 85% of Belichick's reputation is total bullshit that was exxagerated or just made up.

Well, that was a great game tonight. The Eagles played brilliantly, with some great calls.

And I'm actually glad it wasn't a blowout. Now the Patriots can get some of that focus back.

If I'm a Raven, I'm pissed right now.

I get bitter after my team's victories sometimes if bitterness is called for.

Two very different emotions. I never said he was whining.

I wouldn't say LM was calling him a whiner. But I wasn't part of the conversation (and I couldn't be bothered going back to look for it) so I won't say anything more about it.

At least your team is good. The least you can do is not be bitter after your own victories. That's simply pathetic.

Interpret it as you please. It may have been both, actually.

They essentially mean: LM thinks Hewson is making too big a deal out of the media making too big a deal out of Belichick.

Glad we cleared that up.

I'm sleeping now.
