When Charles Barkley speaks, people listen — even if it’s about football, apparently.

Sir Charles was in the New England Patriots’ locker room following Saturday night’s divisional playoff win over the Indianapolis Colts at Gillette Stadium. The Round Mound of Rebound posed for photos with some players and even took questions from reporters.

Among many quotes from his “postgame availability,” Barkley told the group of lucky reporters that “when Bill Belichick and Tom Brady leave, y’all team is going to [expletive] suck.”

The Auburn alum, who said Patriots fans and media “take winning for granted,” also interrupted Alabama alum Dont’a Hightower‘s postgame interview to give him a hard time about Auburn football’s success this season.
