Default This is another example why the Pats have become so hated

Their fans...Obviously not to lump in the good ones...but boy are there some bad apples...

http://espn.go.com/blog/afcnorth/pos...t-dead-brother

A number of Patriots fans tweeted some disparaging remarks to Torrey Smith about his late brother following the AFC Championship Game, according to the Ravens wide receiver. Tevin Smith, Torrey's younger brother, was killed in a motorcycle accident in September.

"Played a lot of games since my brothers death and I never received as many rude tweets after a win than Sunday...yet NE fans cry about class," Smith tweeted Tuesday.

I understand how fans can take losses personally. But they can't make it personal. This is the perfect example of social media gone bad. I applaud Smith for handling it the right way because many athletes wouldn't.

The sad part is this isn't the first time Smith has had to deal with this. Shortly after Smith helped the Ravens beat the Patriots in September, only hours after his brother had died, someone taunted him on Twitter, saying, "Hey, Smith, how about you call your bro and tell him about your wi--- ohhhh. Wait. #TooSoon?"

That's a damn shame. But every fan-base has it's share of morons.

Heck, right here in Houston we've seen a black QB called an N-bomb at home games, and more recent, a QB's wife had beer poured on her. Fast forward to just last year and some doofuses decided to throw physical threats toward Jacoby Jones.

Some people are just shallow-thinking mouth-breathers that live too much of their lives vicariously through their sports teams.

Damn that's low and classless. I guess it's a good thing ND didn't beat Bama because they would have taunted him over the loss of his beloved fake girlfriend.
