Cheaters Feel Cheated, Pat Fans Cry Foul

    In a humorously ironic twist, fans of the New England Patriots are demanding that the NFL investigate the final 1:40 of Super Bowl XLII because -- get this -- they feel cheated.

    And no, this is not a joke.

    According to the disgruntled Patriots fan who created the original petition on, the game clock should not have stopped following Brandon Jacobs' fourth-and-one plunge and thus, the game should have ended on the sack of Eli Manning with 50 seconds remaining.

    This fan, and the other 7,815 (and counting) who have apparently signed this ridiculous petition, were obviously too busy crying in their beer to realize that it was an administrative time-out. The referees were determining whether or not to measure the spot -- something that requires a clocks-stoppage under NFL rules. Once the first down was determined without a measurement, the clock was wound and continued to run.

    If anything, using the fan's logic, this petition proves that New England shouldn't have had 35 seconds left on their next possession. If anything, they should have had 29 seconds or less.

    But hey, what can you expect from fans who say they love their team at 18-0 and then claim they were bored to tears during the greatest Super Bowl of all time?

    The argument is too hypothetical. You can't assume that the Giants wouldn't adjust to the lesser amount of time even if the clock didn't stop for those 6 seconds.

    I can't believe these are real fans. The argument screams bandwagoner and if you read the signatures, half of them are jokes.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess these 7800+ patriots fans weren't fans of the pats in most of the
    90's when they were one of the craptiest teams around. If they were they'd would have been ok with losing and would take this lost without being little snitches.

    Whats funny is that four teams alltime in the history of the NFL have finished a regular season undefeated but only ONE TEAM which is the 1972 Miami Dolphins were able to win it all. The 1934 and 1942 Chicago Bears went undefeated during the regular season both those years but also lost in the NFL Championship Game both those years. Now onto the 2007 New England Patriots. Sure, going undefeated in the regular season is great but that record means NOTHING without the ring. The Patriot fans who have signed this petition crying, whining, and snitching for Roger Goodell to investigate the final 1:40 of the game need to man up and admit that the better team won Super Bowl XLII and that was the New York Giants.

    I agree 100%. The Pats fans have been spoiled in the Brady/Belichick era in New England way too much.

    Far from it, friend. I was actually having computer issues upon my return to Tacoma last week, so I couldn't get on here. Plus, I put myself on a weeklong football hiatus just to clear my head. And like I said in the Smack forum, this "petition" sickens me.

    I could've sworn they still had timeouts at that point too.

    what ever, I still don't understand the play where Belechic challanged the play and they threw a penalty after reviewing it....they wouldn't be saying crap if it was the other way around!

    They didn't challenge a penalty, so it was legal. It's better that they get the right call. It's not as if Belichick whined and got them to reverse the call, they saw the evidence.
