Minutes after the Patriots clobbered the Colts and cut a path for Tom Brady’s 6th Super Bowl appearance there was deflate-gate.
“Listen to some of these people, this thing with ball, give me a break,” Patriots fan Robert Rafuse said.
Then former New York Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes sent out a tweet that said “The Pats have learned to celebrate the hell out of those AFC Championships because the know what comes 2 weeks later. #0-2inGlendale.”
“I don’t think that’s very nice. I think there’s a lot poor sportsmanship,” Patriots fan Eleanor Rafuse said.

Fans believe the hate comes with the territory, having eight Super Bowl appearances.
“I think we’re in that position as the Dallas Cowboys back in 70’s. It’s now the Patriots and the dynasty we have,” one fan said.
But no amount of chastising tweets or deflated balls will take the air out of how much they love their winning team.
