    Does anyone know why LT was so mad after the game? He pushed away all the Patriots that wanted to shake hands. I don't think that it was because he had just lost, but I am not sure.

    Yeah I really don't know, I think it's the fact he worked so hard to get here, and now he's done for the rest of the year. That challenge that schotty called on that fumble costed them the game really, because that wasted a timeout.

    The timeout that they could of kept would have saved them roughly 35 seconds..and enough for 2-3 more shots to get closer for a field goal. But oh well things happen for a reason..

    The Patriots were dancing all over his home field "disrepctin'" them etc. is what he said after the game. He kind of felt bad for going off though

    Can't blame them for celebrating! I think he was just frustrated. He had such a killer regular season, then his team goes and "BEARS" it. (One and done i mean) must be a hard way to end such a great season on his part.
    But he should have been a good sport about it.

    At least the Chargers had a chance to "BEAR" it, instead of not getting the chance by "PACKERING" it...

    Great find Z2C.
    I kind of take LT's side on this one. Everyone celebrates after a tackle in the heat of the game. BUT, after the game, if they were intentionally mocking Meriman, then that would really tick me off. After reading that, I can't blame LT for not wanting to shake hands with the team rubbing it in their face. Just my opinion.

    Bellichick is an *******..

    When he loses..he's the biggest baby on the planet. You should have seen him when Denver spanked them last year...

    And I hope the Colts do it to them again this year...then you will see his true colors..and Brady's too...

    (They are both spoiled whiners....when they lose!)

    People are such crybabies. Bellichick is a winner. Get over it. No matter what, Tomlinson looked like a piece of $hit calling out an opposing head coach. The Chargers lost the game, the Pats took advantage and then celebrated when they beat the #1 team in the league, and LaDanian couldn't deal. The guy's been pure class his whole career, but he ruined that with his comments and his post-game actions.

    I think that celebrating is one thing. But if they were openly mocking the Chargers at midfield - I believe that I would have done the same thing. Beat me - ok. Beat me AND mock me - f you.

    pack_in_black - what did you think of Moss's mooning the crowd at Lambeau? The vast majority of Packer fans wanted someone to ring his bell. That action wasn't even toward the team, it was toward the crowd.

    Honestly, it didn't bother me all that much. I hated him for "torching" Al harris, and for costing us our season, but the mooning wasn't that big of a deal. Everyone talks about it like he actually pulled down his pants. He never even really did it.

    As far as the whole "mocking" Merriman thing goes, if he hadn't shown up opposing offensive linemen/quarterbacks after every one of his 17 sacks this season, I might be able to sympathize. LaDanian wanted the Pats to "act like they'd been there before"- couldn't any one of the previously mentioned o-linemen or qb's bitch and throw a tantrum like he did?

    I just think that it's a double standard. Guys on your team want to be like a WWE star and create a trademark dance? Then eventually, it's gonna come back at you. Example: Randy Moss fake moons the same fans that have mooned him once a year since he joined the league.

    Oh, and 'Lights Out' is a steroid user. I understand SD fans letting it slide. I'd do the same for any player on any of my sports teams. But he has no place to cry about 'disrespect'.

    OK. I can see your point. I think that there is a fine line there somewhere.

    To me, the line is that Merriman's antics are within the game. The Pats mocking was done after the game.

    True. After a little more thought, I'd agree that NE crossed the line. But I think that the whole root of this is that the Chargers were more butthurt that they lost. That's what irks me about this whole thing. It was a great sports story, underdogs beating a heavily favored juggernaut. Then the whole thing gets pissed on by players feeling 'disrespected'.

    I wonder how many people have been murdered because someone "dissed" them in the last 20 years?
    To me, you should just be the bigger man and walk away. LT SHOULD have just filed this away in his memory banks for the NEXT time the 2 teams meet. Then you take it out on the other team in the game. (No, i don't mean cheap shots, i mean just having more reason to beat them).
    Think about the "old days". If you tried to show up the other team, they got after you the next time. Thats what got the Packers/Bears rivalry really going.
    In the end, to me it's not a big deal either way. What the Pats did showed no class for sure, but whats the big deal really? So LT "dissed" them back. Even score!

    All LT had to do was walk off the field and bitch in the locker room. It would accomplish as much but he wouldn't have come off as a very poor loser. As regards the Pats, they showed what poor winners they can be. Their reputation took a big hit there too. I would think the Colts would have extra incentive this weekend. They won't want to see their logo being insulted too. You never want to give an opponent more juice.
