I also admit that the Patriots are the team that I love to hate. If the Vikings lose, I'm sad, but if the Patriots lose too, I'm thinking that things are not so bad. Really.
So, with regard to the deflate-gate controversy, I do believe in rules and the "rule of law". I would side with the commissioner on this issue regardless of which team it involved with the only exception of my Vikings. That's just how I roll. For example, I am very sympathetic with police officers right now. I think that they have a very difficult job and they are getting compromised with their authority. I don't care for that. So you can see, that's just how I think.
Why do I hate the Patriots? Number one because they have been superbly successful. I admit that I'm jealous. Nevertheless, if their coach wasn't so smug and arrogant, it would be easier to tolerate them. I suppose that he deserves to be smug and arrogant. Nevertheless, I root for the Patriots opponent every week. Even if it is the Packers.
We live in a world where we depend upon each other. In other words, we need each other just as God needs us and we need Him. How wonderful it would be if we could unite and live in harmony. Wouldn't it be better that way?
