Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

Here's why it wasn't a big deal - the timekeeper messed up and ran the clock to zero. When Belicheat ran on the field, the game was, arguably, over as far as he knew (as in :00). He didn't just say "F- the last play, I'm going on the field".

Now, he obviously knew at some point that the refs had put the clock back to :01. The classy move would have been to LEAD your team back to the sideline and let the game end. However, we all know Belicheat isn't classy. So, while it's not surprising, it's really not a big deal.

A good leader is the first in and the last out, at least if he wants to maintain any sense of respect. If I were Belichick's players, I'd be royally pissed right now.
Agreed 100%. Piss-poor by BB IMO. Tom Coughlin didn't run to the Fox podium or off to do interviews, he went back to the sidelines with his team to run the last play. BB should face some sort of fine/suspension. Total disrespect & disregard for not only the Giants & the NFL , but most importantly his players.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

I totally agree, the ref was right there plain as day saying there was time left on the clock.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

If this was soccer then that one second woulnd't have mattered. Oh well goes to show you how rigourously timed football is. "NO THERES ONE SECOND LEFT ON THE CLOCK YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT OFFICAL OR ELSE THE NFL WILL FINE YOU!!!"

I'm not saying I didn't raise an eyebrow when he walked off the fields, but It wasn't the same kind of "whateva, I do what I want!", mentality. He shook hands, lost gracefully, and peaced out.

I'm not one to give BB the benefit of the doubt, because I legitimately don't like him, I just don't think this and the RM incident in D.C. is a good comparison.
If anything, I think the coach has a higher duty than his players to stay on the field until the fat lady has officially sung. Leaders lead by example and Belichick's example was poor. But, as others have noted, it's not a big deal.....it's just noteworthy.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

Alright lets take bets. I'll bet anyone that Belicheck never watches Super Bowl XLII.,

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

Classless winner, and even more classless loser. He got exactly what the doctor ordered last night. I hear that he might even be suspended for a few games next season if congress gets its way regarding the so-called "spygate" stuff.

In an aside, why must every scandal be labled so and so-gate? Watergate was a light years ago for all you media types. The glory of Woodward and Bernstein died a long time ago! Get over it!

For all the hell Joe Gibbs took in his second go round he always remained nothing but class. That's just another reason why I respect the man so much.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

This is not the nicest man to begin with and he just suffered what was probably the worst loss in NFL history considering all that was on the line for him. So under the circumstances his actions are not all that bad.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

no big deal at all, he wasn't pouting, nor was he impolite with the handshake. turnover on downs, 1 sec left = game over...he knew it.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

I think the professional, good sportsmanship move would have been to stay until the game was truly over. It would've been great if the Giants had not taken a knee.
