    Default Nation Unites?

    "WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ—According to results from a Monmouth University poll released Friday, Americans have finally put their differences aside and united around a common cause: their utter hatred of the New England Patriots NFL football team.


    Pollsters asked over 30,000 randomly selected people how they felt about the highly successful organization, which will return again to the Super Bowl this weekend. In a stunningly unified response, 97.8% of those surveyed answered with “hate them,” “hate them very much”, or “loathe those cheaters to the core of my earthly being.”

    “In these times of sharp division within our nation, it’s comforting to know we can all agree on something,” a spokesperson told reporters. “The most significant irritants cited by respondents were New England’s consistent record of success, their ability to overcome injuries and scandals, and their insufferable fan base.”
    “America loves to hate the Patriots,” he added."

    Some things are so universal.
    We have the same issue of a football team here Downunder that
    everyone loves to hate.
    - Collingwood -

    Smug. Born to win. A doping scandal involving the whole
    team with the sacking of their head coach.
    Yes, an insufferable fan base who see no wrong.
    Their club president, Eddie Maguire, is a notable TV channel
    personality who uses his position to promote the team.

    Yes outside of their fan base the rest of the nation loves
    to hate Collingwood - 'The Magpies'

    I forgot to mention, this is from the Babylon Bee, a Christian satire site.

    But, it does reflect a lot of what I have been hearing! Sorry if you actually are a Patriots fan!

    Awww, man! If they were playing anyone but us, I'd be rooting for them! Tom Brady has 5 Super Bowl rings. I hope he gets a sixth, although, NOT tomorrow. lol
