New England Patriots head coach and social media truther Bill Belichick addressed the Antonio Brown/Mike Tomlin controversy on Monday after a Facebook Live video surfaced with disparaging remarks about his team.
Following their 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night, Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown caught head coach Mike Tomlin calling the Patriots “a–holes.”

“When you get to this point in the journey, not a lot needs to be said. Let’s say very little moving forward. Let’s start our preparations. We spotted those assholes a day and a half. They played yesterday, our game got moved to tonight. We gonna touch down at 4 o’clock in the fucking morning. So be it — we’ll be ready for their ass.” – Mike Tomlin VC: @defpensports
In response to the video, Belichick showed little interest in what some players might deem as “bulletin board material.”
While doing a weekly interview with Dale and Holley for WEEI radio in Boston, Belichick gave his rather standard answer on social media usage:
“SnapFace and all that, I don’t really get those. I’m just really worried about getting our team ready to go. I’m not really too worried about what they put on InstantChat, or whatever it is.”
Once he retires, Belichick should give motivational speeches on the perils of social media. He’s too good.
Anyhow, Tomlin and his band of social media misfits will be in Foxborough on Sunday for the AFC Championship game versus New England.
