    Will PATS be the Yankees of this decade?

    Sorry to rub it in but must hand it to the yanks. sox like pats have slumped as of late with rings but like yanks should be wearing a ring this year and like yanks should put ourselves in position for another great year to come. unlike the yanks, we won't have to BUY our championship! just good old fashion hardwork, coaching and organizational coherence! pats and celts should restore some championship swagger soon!

    27 world championships is impressive.  The patriots have quite a few championships to make up.  The Yankees are a dynasty, the Patriots....not quite yet.

    The Yankees went out and bought the most expensive players.  They outspent some of the other MLB teams 10 to 1.  What a rotten, corrupt financial system to call itself a "sport".

    The Patriots have operated for decades within the NFL's "parity" rules.  Bill Belichick has to lose players that the football club can no longer afford under the NFL's salary cap.  Belichick usually has had to draft last or near the bottom in the first round, where some high impact players are often available at or near the #1 slot. 

    That's why there's no comparison.

    The Pats did it by shrewd management and within the limitations of a salary cap.  This is apples to oranges my friend.

    Over the course of a century in a sport with no salary cap. Not to mention that the bulk of the Yanks championships came during an era when the league was small. A better comparrison would be comparing the Yankees and Celtics and in that the Celts win hands down.

    Aside from players, don't forget that the Pats coaching/personnel staff is raided at least once yearly and BB has to constantly reshuffle the organization.  That, on top of everything else, says a lot about his ability to run an organization.

    if pats win this year, they would be the TEAM of the decade (in all sports)... if they don't, i m afraid to say so but the yanks will have that crown all to themselves. cap or not, 8 division championships are 8 division championships, regardless... same with 3 finals appearances and 2 rings. let's not let homerism cloud the FACTS! pats have won more games than anyone in football this decade, that says a lot. they need that extra ring! i say pats are the team of the decade in football as is unless the steelers win it again. pats are fighting 2 legacies this year!
