Bill Belichick has always seemed to receive preferential treatment from the NFL and officials… which most likely stems from the fact that every time Tom Brady makes a pouty face, the refs throw a flag on the defense. Well last night didn’t turn out that way for the New England Patriots as they lost a close game to the Baltimore Ravens.
Belichick didn’t hide his displeasure with having to answer to refs by grabbing one on his way off the field Sunday night. When asked for a comment after the game, Belichick mumbled, “”I’m not going to comment about that. You saw the game,” … “What did we have, 30 penalties called in that game?”
It was 10 for 83 yards.
Belichick’s hissy fit came in a weekend after the NFL warned teams and coaches to treat the replacement refs with more respect… something Belichick knows nothing about.
