    yes it bothers me. I wasn’t partying on Sunday night after the game. More like sick to my stomach. Why would they be so happy?

      As crazy as it may seem, fans are more emotionally involved with their teams than the players on the team. As players, they care about money and stats for the most part. Whether or not their jersey says “Patriots” or “Lions” or whatever, they really could care less. To them, the Patriots is a corporation they are employed by (and they’re right). So it’s not that difficult for them to put a loss behind them. I’m a Patriots fan and I don’t have a problem with it, because…to the players, even though it’s a great job, it’s still just a job. If they could get paid the same amount of money to do any other job, most would, so they aren’t emotionally invested to a franchise like most fans are.

        I don’t think it’s as selfish as that — just about stats and money. It’s about doing your job the best you can all season, win or lose, and then letting go when it’s over.

        It’s like lawyers having a drink after a trial, which would be really weird if it were a death penalty trial, but I bet they do.

        You have to have a short memory to be a professional athelete. Short memory and a thick skin. Or be completely crazy, that works too.
