Colts-Patriots rivalry: But where is the hate?

Can a rivalry based more on respect than hatred be considered among the greatest in NFL history?

I hate the PATS with a WHITE HOT VENGEANCE.

My Colts are going to KICK the living snot out of them in a closed in stadium with extra piped in noise this Sunday !!!

BTW -- do eat at our concession stands PATS fans. Those rats the health inspector found taste good!!

These are two very professional football teams. Even though the Colts remain undefeated (until Sunday,) this is a great match-up! Two very outstanding, record-breaking QBs will go head to head in one of the most anticipated games of the season. The better of the two QBs will be known after this game, for sure! Hate is a strong word and I can't imagine either of these teams using that against one another. "BTW" UE_GRADUATE; this is the NFL, not some high school football team.

Whatever, the Pats haven't done much lately. This isn't a rivalry. I don't hate New England, I feel sorry for them. They have to cheat to win games and their QB has a bum knee.

They have cheated? Didn't know you could cheat in the NFL. But if they made a mistake, they would be penalized, correct? The QB has a "bum knee" but continues to make records and perform as though his knee was never injured.

Colts fans are a bunch of theives. If you moved back to Baltimore I might have a lick of respect. The way it is you all seem like a joke in the Puke Oil Stadium. With one good player in Manning and a couple thugs for WRs. You could barely get by the Texans. Get ready for a spanking this weekend.

The Pats coach, Bill Belicomb-over refuses to shake the hand of the winning coach after defeat. This is okay?

First, this is not a rivalry. In my opinion, to be a rivalry, the teams would have to match up EVERY year. It has been every year for quite a few years now because both teams tend to finish in first place in their respective divisions. But at some point, Peyton and Brady will move on and at least one of these teams will decline, their matchups become less important, and nobody will care.

Secondly, to MCHANTU, the fans are thieves? How are the fans responsible for an owner doing one of the dirtiest things in NFL history? Ravens fans are pathetic, but they aren't responsible for Art Modell basically doing the same thing with the Browns. And as far as thug WRs go, I wouldn't put Reggie Wayne or Anthony Gonzalez in the same breath as Randy Moss. Not saying he IS a thug, but he fits the description WAY more than anyone on the Colts roster. And finally, to destroy each of your points, the Colts did barely beat the Texans(5-4) but the Pats should have lost to the Bills (3-5).

Randy Moss is no thug. He is a true gentleman who has been a model of selflessness and integrity every moment he has been a New England Patriot. And he's caught a couple of passes for us, too...
