In front of a national audience, the New England Patriots fans at Gillete stadium showed a weak display of support for their team, especially when the team needed it the most. Almost every Patriot drive was booed by the fans in the stands. To make things worse, the stadium was emptied by the beginning of the fourth quarter. Fans are supposed to support their team no matter what. Fans are supposed to be graceful in victory or defeat. NE fans displayed a very bad picture of themselves on National TV.
