Something else ironic about it, this is the same Shula that a lot of Jet fans will never forgive for the way he monkeyed around with the field in '82 (conveniently forgetting or misplacing the tarp during a rainy week to slop up the field and blunt the Jets' speed advantage before the AFC Championship).

I personally think too much was made of that since the Fins had beaten the Jets twice already that season...but a lot of Jet fans still harbor a big grudge at him for unfairly broadening the definition of home field advantage.

And as much of a Patriot-hater (rather Belichick and Kraft hater) as I am, I wouldn't put an asterisk by the 16-0...they were caught red-handed and punished after one half of one game which they would have still won by 20 if the JETS were videotaping THEM :rolleyes:

I 'will' put an asterisk by the other three titles but not anything they did this year. Unless they do something else and get caught like say, tampering with other teams' audio.

And me buying a baseball almanac and putting an asterisk by the Barry Bonds home run record does jack sh!t for the world at large. It means absolute squat.

The very fact that fans of other teams used to call 1995 "Half a Cup" I wore as a badge of honour as it was bore out of their jealousy. I'll do the same here.

You're honestly comparing one team that played by the same rules as everyone else and won to another that skirted around the rules to win?

See its all in the eye of the beholder. When its your team you won't question it. Those were the rules of that season and that season only so really by that standard how can you compare it to the wins of any other championship year?
