I could never figure out why the NFL Network hired Michael Irvin as a commentator for its programming.
He talks like a hood; he looks like hoodlum; and we all know his past behavior is nothing short of criminal.
Today, any modicum of respect that I had for him (which was nil) was washed down his toilet like the turd he is.
He suggested in an interview today that the Lombardi Trophy should be named to include the hoodie man himself, Bill Belichick – or Bill Belicheat as many have come to know him.
Yes, he’s won a few Super Bowls and has been a perennial winner with the Patriots.
But to suggest that Patriots’ coach’s name be attached to the trophy that has become the highest symbol of excellence in all of sports is ridiculous, it’s stupid, and just plain idiotic.
Here’s what he had to say to the Boston Herald:
“I think the world of Belichick. I told him this, ‘Man, if it was up to me, that (Super Bowl) trophy would be called the Lombardi/Belichick.’ I don’t care what they think. It would be called the Lombardi/Belichick. That’s how good he is to do what he’s doing in this day and age, what the league is now. I would call it the Lombardi/Belichick.”
Obviously, the reaction was immediate and severe.
Here are some of the comments that I pulled off www.facebook.com/apackphan:
