New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick appeared to take issue with a question about the team’s fan base Saturday night after a playoff loss to the Tennessee Titans.
Belichick was asked whether he had a message for fans who have been with the team through “thick and thin,” according to NESN. Belichick had a problem with the “thin” part of the question.

“We appreciate our fans,” he replied. “I wouldn’t say it’s been all that thin around here, personally. Maybe you feel differently, but I haven’t heard too many fans say that. Of course we appreciate our fans. We have a great relationship with them, they’re here for us and we always try to perform our best so they can be proud of the way we perform.”
Belichick may have a point in this regard.
