This is what happens when you ask Bill Belichick a question about soccer. If you know anything about Belichick, you should not be surprised by the curtness of this response.
Question: It’s a big day for the [New England] Revolution as they introduce Jermaine Jones. Do the Patriots have a competitive relationship with the Revs or is everybody friends?
Belichick: We’re all under the same roof. We’re just trying to go out there an win football games. I don’t know anything about soccer; I don’t even know what the rules are. I’m just trying to coach the Patriots and win football games, that’s all.
Other things Bill Belichick doesn’t know anything about: the situation in Ukraine, the unrest in the Middle East, the protests in Ferguson, that girl shooting that guy with the Uzi, Brad and Angelina tying the knot, the volcano in Iceland, the Ice Bucket Challenge, the kid from USC lying about saving his nephew, Miley Cyrus bringing a homeless guy to the VMAs, Suge Knight getting shot, the Yankees getting nine straight hits off David Price, everything else in the world that doesn’t involve the New England Patriots and trying to win football games.
Oh, he knows a thing or two about wielding a pair of scissors. He is an expert at taking a pair of scissors and hacking away at his sleeves. But soccer? No clue.
Yes, Bill Belichick is already in mid-season form when it comes to being dismissive with reporters. Never change Belichick.
