As previously mentioned here at LBS, Bill Belichick has quite the reputation as a poor sport. He’s made plenty of headlines for his lack of handshakes with Eric Mangini, and he even has a history of being a jerk dating back to his time in Cleveland. Even if that’s the case, I’m not sure how that gives a factually-based TV quiz show like Jeopardy the right to rip him in one of their programs. They’ve cracked on Matt Leinart before, and this time it was Belichick who was the victim:
Threw a hissy fit? I’m not so sure that’s the type of language I would have chosen. Seems to me like they’re editorializing more than giving straight facts. If they wanted to get the question across, why didn’t they ask what team lost the Super Bowl after going 16-0 in the regular season?
