“They win we cheer, they keep winning we hate.”
Since the early 2000’s, the New England Patriots have been a powerhouse franchise. Years removed from the franchise that no one really seemed to care about in football. They were like the Golden State Warriors before the Warriors took off. And the reality behind the constant winning is that people feel detached from you after a while. They want to see the Goliath lose eventually so they can enjoy the movie. And the Patriots are ruining the movie for people. Now, if you are a Pats fan, then you love the winning. But from the others in society, they hate the idea that the same team keeps winning. People want to see the movie play out how they like to see it play out.
Times used to be, you went to work, got off, came home, and lived your existence. Now everywhere you turn you are reminded of what you don’t have in life. No place is more evident, then in the Instagram world of watching people enjoy their great life. Even if it’s a facade, we still get upset at our own existence. And now add the team that keeps on winning, like I said earlier, it ruins your movie. That’s why Philadelphia’s Super Bowl win last year was so big. We like the movie where it all comes down to the underdog winning. Had the Patriots have won, they would be hated more now than ever before. And that could be even more real if they win this year.
When you don’t lose, suspicion arise. And what happens, there were investigations surrounding the Patriots. Because if they are winners always, it’s hard to believe. So now we have to try anything to bring down the Goliath to prove they are doing something wrong. Which is what happened, causing Tom Brady to miss several games in the beginning of last season. And that is what it comes down to, you must be cheating to always win. No one realizes the chip on the shoulder of so many on the team that never were supposed to make it, but did. And that is the reason for the fight in them. Tom Brady damn near last draft pick to Malcolm Butler barely making the NFL after previously working at Popeyes.
