Bill Belichick shuts down kid reporter over fantasy football

Bill Belichick shuts down kid reporter over fantasy football

In case you had any other ideas: No, Bill Belichick doesn’t care about your fantasy football team. 

During Patriots training camp on Thursday, a 14-year-old reporter from “NBC Nightly News: Kids Edition” asked for Belichick’s opinion on the wildly-popular hobby. 

“We’re obsessed with fantasy football,” the reporter informed Belichick. “Even though we know you don’t play, do you think it’s good or bad for the NFL?”

Unsurprisingly, the notoriously-stern Patriots coach responded indifferently. 

“Honestly, I don’t really have any opinion on that,” Belichick mused during a press conference Thursday. “Fantasy football doesn’t mean anything to me. We’re just trying to win games out here, so I don’t know who’s hot, who’s not, who wins, who doesn’t. I don’t care about that. I just care about whether we win.”

“So have fun with that,” Belichick added, conceding a smile. 

Just don’t mention anything about it to Belichick himself.
