The Pats "fans" were booing their own team as the left the field for halftime. God their awful.

ROFL. Gotta love it.


I'm just hoping the Dolphins run up the score on them. There has got to be only 5 people left at Foxborough right now.

All five are Dolphins fans.


This post would be considerably more believable if it didn't actually suggest the Phins HAD five fans.

Don't you ever, ever say that again. The only way you can say that is if they are trapped in a burning bus going over a cliff. Otherwise, you should never say that.


Pretty much fair. We could lose every game for the next three seasons like this, and the balance of happy/sad this team has given us would still be in the black.

Oh yes, because no-one else has ever booed a team playing terribly against a bottom dweller. Oh no.

Seriously, if this makes the Pats fans bad, what are all Philly fans in every sport? There are people in every fanbase who have no perspective.

The Dolphins don't have five fans? Really? Image

Yes. Really. I was absolutely 100% serious when posting that.

Did you not notice that Dolphin Stadium has only ten seats?

Darnit. Stupid grammar.

Are you seriously saying Pats fans are fine because they compare to Philly fans? Didn't Philly fans throw batteries at...Santa Claus?

What I was implying is that maybe a team that's been as good as the Pats for as long as they have should get a little bit of slack from their fans. Instead, they're getting booed after playing the first bad half of football they've played at home in....2 years? In my mind, that doesn't reflect well on those fans. Even Philly fans are smart enough to appreciate their team when it's been good.

Admittedly, that's setting the bar rather low.

They've had plenty of bad halves. They were actually booed off at HT in one of the home games last season (Iggles?) That took the biscuit much more than this. I don't disagree that it's a display of base ingratitude to boo off a team that's given us so much in the last few years. But I also know that plenty of sports fans are like that. The 'best in baseball' St Louis Cards fans booed their team during a world series. I'm pretty sure you could find examples of most fanbases booing good teams that gave uncharacteristically bad performances.
