Shannon Sharpe critical of Bill Belichick

The decision by Patriots coach Bill Belichick to decline an interview on the Gillette Stadium field after the AFC Championship didn’t sit well with CBS broadcaster Shannon Sharpe.

“Bill Belichick makes it real easy for you to root against the Patriots,” Sharpe said on CBS’s postgame show. “You can’t be a poor sport all the time. You’re not going to win all the time. And he does this every time he loses. It’s unacceptable.”

Belichick did conduct his usual postgame press conference in Gillette Stadium’s interview room.
