Did anyone else feel like ESPN, Fox, CBS, heck the NFL Network and all that I noticed seemed to downplay the Pats cheating, bad attitudes, favorable calls, etc and always hype them up as perfect and ignore failings?

I assume this is because of the hype value of a perfect team vs. any detraction that would have brought down the sales value of the hype.

Am I wrong, or do others see this as well?

A perfect season is a huge story, you have to expect the sports media to hype it. I thought there has been tons of coverage of spygate, with various commentators taking different sides on it.

While I understand hyping a possible perfect season, it was rather lopsided in it's coverage. The Giants segments were miniscule while the Pats coverage was forced down your throat.
