Shannon Sharpe Rips Bill Belichick For Being “A Poor Sport”

Shannon Sharpe calls out Bill Belichick for being a poor sportIn typical Bill Belichick fashion, Bill Belichick declined an interview with CBS’s Steve Tasker after his New England Patriots fell 28-13 to the Baltimore Ravens in Sunday’s AFC Championship game. Belichick went missing last season when his team lost to Giants in the Super Bowl as well.

Former Ravens tight end Shannon Sharpe has had enough of The Hoodie and called him out on his poor continued lack of sportsmanship. “There’s something to be said about being gracious in defeat,” Sharpe told viewers. “We’ve seen the New England Patriots five times in the last 12 years be victorious.  And we’ve seen the opposing coaches that lost come out and talk to our Steve Tasker.  Coach Cowher did it when [the Steelers] lost to them.  We saw this last week [when the Patriots beat the Texans],” he added.

“Bill Belichick makes it real easy for you to root against the Patriots.  You can’t be a poor sport all the time.  You’re not gonna win all the time.  And he does this every time he loses.  It is unacceptable.”

Sharpe is exactly right. It’s bad enough that Belichick shook Harbaugh’s hand with his hood still over his head, shielding his face from the Ravens’ head coach and the cameras of the game broadcast, but then he opted not perform the duties of his job and spend 20 seconds answering three questions an a postgame interview.

On top of being a sore loser, Belichick is also a cheater. A part of his legacy that is often overlooked — although not by Terrell Suggs.

    Belicheck is a classless oaf. He fell in a pile of s#it and found a horseshoe in Tom Brady. He was just in the right place at the right time.

    CBS cares nothing about football. Football is just a platform for them to advertise their lame shows which no one watches. Who has the game announcer make a pitch for How I Met Your Mother on a 3rd a 4 play? CBS does. Number one network? Please. Shannon Sharpe get off your high horse.

    Has anyone run Bellichick’s nanme on the sexual predator list?  He looks like he has had coffee with Jerry Sandusky before.

    Guys, guys, leave the poor New England guys alone. Their football team is down the crapper and their baseball team sucks too.
    I mean look, the Pats could only win when they cheated and the Red Sox could only win with the juicers- Fat Ass Pappi and Manny.
    The Sox are so desperate after the whole chicken and beer meltdown that they are signing platoon players to $13 million contracts and one guy can’t even pass a physical.
    It’s a bad time to be from New England. The “Dicky Eklunds” are going through some tough times.
