The New England Patriots used to have class. Back when Steve Grogan ran the show, back when Bill Parcells marched the sidelines. Now, they are a bunch of egotistical idiots who think that everyone owes them something.
Last year Bill Belichick walked away from league Commissioner Roger Goodell’s office with nary a bruise on his hand from the discipline handed out after “Spygate”. As the season progressed some film guy that Billy fired, for likely not recording the right defensive calls, spilled the beans on the Pats filming the walk through practice of the St. Louis Rams prior to the Super Bowl XXXVI. Well, apparently, at least one of those “Winners” realizes that his Super Bowl ring is really worthless. Give it up to Je’Rod Cherry for auctioning off his Super Bowl Ring.
Yeah that’s right, you too can jump in and buy 5 tickets (minimum) for 2 bucks apiece, and take the shot at winning that once in a lifetime tainted ring they called victory. While the ring is very nicely decorated in what has to be diamonds from the West African Coast…it is after all the Patriots…the fact is that the proceeds of the auction will go towards helping impoverished children around the world.
Still, it makes you wonder. This 2002 ring from Super Bowl XXXVI was the first Super Bowl ring of Cherry’s. Normally, the first of anything is almost priceless in one’s possession. So why would he not be more inclined, to say, auctioning off his second SB ring from the 2004 season when the Pats knocked off the Carolina Panthers? Or how about the Super Bowl XXXIX ring…the last one he won?
The simple truth of it? He knows, as well as everyone else, that the difference between the 2002 ring and the 2004 and 2005 rings, is that as of right now…we all still think that the latter rings were earned with tough play and not video shenanigans. Even Cherry knows that that 2002 ring was a gift from their HC (head cheater). Of course is there really that many fans who believe that Billy Chuck didn’t somehow find a way to get video of those other two as well? Sure Bill, we all know you only did against the Jets that one time.
Win that ring and your winning more than just history…your winning a piece of the history that the NFL wishes they could erase, I’m sure there are a few Pats fans out there that wish it would go away as well.
