Robert Kraft Doesn’t Understand How Anyone Could Hate the ‘Red, White and Blue’ Patriots


February 2, 2012

The Cowboys are known as “America’s Team.”

But are they really?

Immediately following the Patriots’ victory in Super Bowl XXXVI, in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Pats owner Robert Kraft proudly stated a now famous line in New England sports history.

“We are all Patriots. And tonight, the Patriots are world champions.”

Ten years later, Kraft is using the same approach to argue against why anyone would hate his beloved football team.

In an interview with The Dan Patrick Show, the two discussed how some football fans feel the Patriots are one of the most hated franchises in the NFL.

Kraft was quick with a rebuttal.

“We’re red, white, and blue and our name is Patriots,” he said. “How can you hate something like that? All we try to do is win and try to do it in a way, with a group of young men that people can emotionally feel good about.”
