Around 11:30 p.m. last night the Patriots sealed the win in the opening game to the NFL's 2015-16 season, rising above all the sound and fury from last season's Deflategate debacle with a convincing win over the Steelers.
It took just a few more hours for The CHB to dive back into the mire.
"[G]et ready for another round of accusations from the haters," writes The CHB, following the Patriots' victory.
But who, exactly, are the haters?
Following the game, the Steelers complained about the headsets occasionally not working or getting crossed with other broadcasts. Well, the Patriots acknowledged the headsets weren't working. That's hating?
No, what feels more like hating is when The CHB writes:
"No fan base is more angry or defensive than the proud Patriot Legion ... "
"[W]inning is never enough for the Patriots and their fans. They need to grind their enemies into dust."
"Nothing has changed for many of us ... the Patriots quarterback was not 'exonerated.' "
"Why so many 'experts' (including ESPN) saying the weather could have deflated balls when ESPN says all 12 colt footballs tested ok?
Who's the real hater?
