    Typical MA Lottery scheme....such a sleazy outfit. They always frontload a new game to whip up the excitement. We have to have one of the highest per capita spends on state lottery tickets. It's so depressing to see people spend all their $$$ on lottery/keno.

    That being said, I have a friend at work who's dad won $400,000 per year....FOR LIFE!!! He doesn't think the lottery is a sleazy operation at all.

    Sorry to say the Pats have very little to do with this scam.

    Everyone knows the patriots cheated for years by picking up play calls through electronic sources and other means I wonder what the budget was on that. The new pats stadium is wired to the hilt on picking up information from other teams. The question is. Are and will other teams do the same. And the nfl heirchy that kisses the pats butts won't do anything about it.

    The pats would have trouble beating any team if they played fairly.

    Sour grapes.......

    If "everyone knows" then why are you pointing it out?

    Though this article mentions the Pats, it certainly implies that several NFL teams employ questionable tactics. If you think your team is innocent then you are kidding yourself, which is fine, just not intelligent.

    Cheating Article

    Where do you stand on steroids?

    Roid article

    The NFL is big business, there's a lot at stake. People seek any and every edge that they can. The Pats paid for their stupidity, case closed.

    For the record, you guys can't seem to beat anyone to get to the Super Bowl, so, don't blame it on the Pats. Did the Steelers cheat last year?

    Sure they did. :icon_rofl:

    OK, seriously, I've been thinking about this. I understand that every team is looking for an advantage. All of the AFL teams did stuff back in the day that they're not proud of. And that winning in today's world means big money. That's why I mocked the above comment, everyone knows that the Pats PROFITED from cheating. Were others trying? Sure. The Pats were better at cheating than anyone. Be proud Pats fan.

    I always love claims that start with "everyone knows".

    Everyone knows to ignore what comes next.

    Dude, you really think we WON'T win the AFC WEST???

    We could win the AFC WEST with our backup Billy Volek.

    Now the Patriots arn't a lock to win thier own division this year even with Mr. GQ. :no:

    Every team in your division is better than last year.

    to Beerguy's credit, I think the joke meant hopes of going far in the playoffs, not hopes of making it.

    The Patriots don't play the Chargers this year, it's kind of hard for them to have much of an effect on the Chargers making the playoffs....unless they lose to Denver perhaps.

    My point exactly, thanks for the confirmation.


    The facts:

    The Patriots broke the rules about using video to steal signs.

    The Patriots, as well as other teams suspected of doing the same, were warned by the commish not to use video.

    The Patriots did it again and got caught.

    The team and the coach were both penalized.


    EVERYTHING ELSE is conjecture, conspiracy theory & jingoistic posturing on jealous peoples parts.

    Look, I get it, I went through huge stretches of years where none of my teams won anything of substance. Even when we got close we'd get our hearts stomped on in the World Series or Super Bowl. It's perfectly natural to hate other teams that have tasted success, especially if it's multiple championships. Even thought the Red Sox have turned the tide I still hate the Yankees with a passion.

    What I don't get is the practice of perseverating on one particular issue, for one particular team, to the exclusion of everything else. I hate the Yankees because the beat us forever, have great players, too much money to spend and a very well run organization. I don't sit in the fetal position in the corner, rocking back and forth, muttering about A-Rod cheating with steroids. I don't care if he has needles sticking out of his butt when he comes to the plate. Who cares! Pro athletes are all dirty in their own way. Your team has cheaters.....my team has cheaters....EVERY team has cheaters of one flavor or another. Guys still need to throw/catch the passes, kick the field goals and block the rush.

    Back to my original point, though.......

    The MA Lottery is full of political hacks that love to suck paycheck's out of desperate peoples hands with hundreds of different lottery vehicles.

    Dude, you made it to the playoffs last year with an 8-8 record! If you don't make the playoffs you will have really sucked this year.


    My point had nothing to do with making the playoffs.

    Thanks again HollywoodLeo, my point wasn't about keeping you guys out of the playoffs.

    In fact, my response was a sarcastic reply to being called one of Bob Krafts a-holes by Uncle Buck in post #5 of this thread. I didn't take offense to that, I thought it was pretty funny.

    We could probably only meet in the AFC Championship this year, which would be fun. Win or lose, I'd love the trash talking that would go on here.:yes:

    Oh man... I had a horrible dream last night that we were hosting the AFC Championship against the Patsies and that we were down 21-0 in halftime.

    Good stuff.


    I've never hated the Pats. In fact I rooted for them in the 85 season. They went from Wild Card to the SB.

    Beating the RAIDERS in the process.

    Like I've always said, my two favorite teams are the Bolts and anyone who plays the Raiders.

    LMAO!! I still get laughs when this gets said......They can't be better at cheating than everyone else, cause they are the only ones that got caught. That makes them the worse at cheating than everyone else.

    I like the way you think. Videotaping Mangina's team may have been the quintessential bonehead moment of Coach Bill's career.

    Stupid....STUPID....STUPID!!!

    Oh, and for the record, this thread inspired me to go out and buy a Pats scratch ticket today.

    I won $50.:yes:
