The biggest sore loser in sports.
Saw this was mentioned in the other thread, felt it deserved its own.
Yeah, we all know Shannon is a loudmouth and is pretty much unbearable (imo) but he's dead on here. Just because you've had past success doesn't mean you can't handle yourself with dignity and class.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick never looks happy when he wins. He’s definitely not happy when he loses.
And CBS analyst Shannon Sharpe has had enough. Sharpe ripped Belichick for declining to submit to an interview with Steve Tasker of CBS after Sunday’s 28-13 loss to the Ravens.
“There’s something to be said about being gracious in defeat,” Sharpe said. “We’ve seen the New England Patriots five times in the last 12 years be victorious. And we’ve seen the opposing coaches that lost come out and talk to our Steve Tasker. Coach Cowher did it when [the Steelers] lost to them. We saw this last week [when the Patriots beat the Texans].
“Bill Belichick makes it real easy for you to root against the Patriots. You can’t be a poor sport all the time. You’re not gonna win all the time. And he does this every time he loses. It is unacceptable.”
So much for the perception that CBS is the official network of the New England Patriots.
Then again, if Sharpe isn’t back with CBS next year, we’ll know why.
And when you add in things like Spygate and his ane the Pats organization's seeming lack of contrition you realize that something is wrong with coach Belichick.
He is on the boarder as a person and he has a lot of pain in his mind and it really isn't funny anymore.
IMO the man needs help..
I cannot stand BB and I'm glad he lost and once again.
He demonstrated a sore loser mentality by showing utter disdain for everyone including Mr. Kraft who does have class
Maybe it is time for him to hang up the hoodie... does anyone have a bar napkin and a sharpie?
Maybe since "spygate" he's allergic to cameras.
I said this in the other thread, and I'll say it again here. It's unfortunate that it took this long for someone to call it like it is on Belichick. Belichick is, and always has been, a classless douchebag. People kill Rex Ryan for being vocal and believing in his team, but Belichick gets a pass dealing with losses like a 3rd grader? And prenteding he's above anything every other coach in the league does? He shouldn't. There should be a national media outrage over this, but there isn't. Rex Ryan's tatoo is more of a discussion point, and that's sickening.
I hate Sharpe but he is dead on here...If Rex Ryan did that he would be getting killed right now.
Look what happened when the Jets were 3 days late with their post season media address....
He's a good coach but a douche. Why do Pats fans continually try to convince people that he's not a psycho, paranoid nut who thinks rules don't apply to him when his body of work says otherwise?
Just curious, why do people refer to this dirty old man in this manner?
Personally, I have no respect for the guy, as much as the talking heads of the NFL want to canonize him.
IMO, he's done nothing to deserve anyone's respect (aside for Pats*fans).
Cry me a river about the lockout, the only thing these owners are concerned with is $$$.
There are analogies to Rex here. During his first two seasons, Rex was a great coach and a bit of an oddball. Now he's a buffoon. Belichick has made himself largely immune to the consequences of his poor media presence because he wins, but if and when he stops winning, the wolves will be through the door and snapping at his heels. Shannon Sharpe could be an early example.
