Dear Patriots Haters,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you. I would like to thank you for everything you do because you are an essential part of what has made this team so great for the last 16 years. We have had a grand total of 1 QB/Coach combination during that time (Brady tearing his ACL doesn’t count), and you picked the wrong QB to mess with. Every time you say that he’s done, that it’s the beginning of the end, or that he’s just overrated to begin with; all you’re doing is adding fuel to his fire. This is a fire that has burned since he was passed over 198 times on draft night back in 2000. What you all call his “whining and crying”, is just him showing the fans as well as his teammates how badly he wants to win. He wants to win more than anybody on the planet. And guess what? He makes it happen. He’s the winningest quarterback of all time! So instead of criticizing him all these years for the things that he does, you probably should have been wondering why your team's quarterback hasn’t been doing the same damn thing. It clearly works! Thank you for motivating him to play at such a high level year in and year out.
More importantly, I would like to show my appreciation for helping develop the best fanbase in sports. I’m not talking about attendance and NFL crowd noise records. Any team that wins for a couple of years can develop a big enough bandwagon fanbase for that stuff (Look at KC and Seattle). I’m talking about loyalty. In any other sport, it’s pretty easy to be a fan of the team that wins the most. You have not allowed that to be the case. Whether you’re Roger Goodell, a member of the media, or a measly internet troll; you have not made it easy to be a Patriots fan. In doing so, you have helped weed out any and all bandwagon fans who would doubt the Pats authenticity, don’t have the willpower to stand by their team in times of adversity, or who would let the political views of those within the organization influence their fandom. The result of this is a core of die-hard fans that will forever remain loyal to their team and the mantra “New England against World”. I wouldn’t want it any other way.
So please continue to doubt our team and fans, and we will continue to prove you wrong. The feeling of winning is always great, but you guys help take it to a new level. My favorite part of the Patriots season is reading and listening to your shit talking all week long just to have your team get embarrassed come Sunday. Please never change. I just wanted to let know know that you’re doing a great job, and that none our success would be possible without you. You may now commence the pre-AFC Championship game trolling. Just know that you’re going get all of Patriots Nation firing back at you until your inevitable surrender. Good luck, you’ll need it.
