For this game I think they are. Its more that the Patriots are the Anti-Americas team..
Certainly a lot around the country want the Pats to lose.
More like Flavor of the Month.
There have been a half dozen claiming it this year alone
Why does everybody on the planet try to give that nickname to another team? It's a nickname given to the Dallas Cowboys.... get over it already.
Why not steal some other teams nickname, call the Patriots "The Greatest show on Turf(Earth, whatever)" or say the Giants have the "Steel Curtain" defense, or the "New York Sack Exchange" at least that pertains to another team that plays in their stadium, or better yet call them The Big Blue Wrecking Crew two.....
The top line in my sig is actually a link. There's a paragraph in there explaining why that nickname is so coveted by other teams. It also explains why none of them can have it.
Meh, it won't stick
No wait a sec....
The moniker "America's Team" was giving to us when we couldnt win the big one right? So it stood for runner up or always a bridgesmade never a bride...
So why would any media or anyone want to "steal" that moniker?
Did we redefine the meaning of the moniker when we won SB's?
Historically things like that have happened... is that the case here?
Good riddance, they can have the title.
No that is actually incorrect...as has been pointed out NUMEROUS times by others on this board.
could not agree more...let em have it.
Wow, I've never heard this one. That's pretty sweet though. And definitely fits with their team.
You really never heard of it? It was given to the Jets in the 80's when it was Mark Gastineau, Mary Lyons, Joe Klecko, and the fourth guy escapes me for some reason. Anyone remember the fourth guy?
half of me wishes you luck
and the other
half hopes you lose.
Tough times for a Cowboy fan
Who is Abdul Salaam?
Useless football trivia for 1000 Alex...
I was just ranting, about how it gets a little old seeing "Is _____ the new America's Team?" or "New Orleands Saints The New America's Team" or "The Patriots are now America's Team" or "The Green Bay Packers The REAL America's Team" ....... Just gets annoying because they don't try and steal any other team's nickname, and I was just venting a little :
Not to worry, adamknite...we all know who "America's Team" is...
Everyone wants to be like the Big Dog...but it ain't happening!
Oh. Well... I was born in 1983... that may have something to do with it.
