It’s easy to hate a winner. Especially in professional football. Especially when you’re talking about the New England Patriots, Tom Brady, and Bill Belichick.
As much as football fans may hate this legendary dynasty, there is no denying that the team is being run by a coach who has been touched by the gods.
Or maybe by something else?
Bill Belichick, Sam Darnold, & the Dark Arts
Twitter is aflutter with the latest Bill Belichick conspiracy theory. New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold has apparently contracted mononucleosis, which will keep him sidelined for weeks.

As the tweet below demonstrates, the underground kingdom of the Flat-Earth Society believes that Bill Belichick sent wide receiver Demaryius Thomas over to the Jets in a trade knowing he had mononucleosis, and knowing it would be passed on to Sam Darnold.
That’s just crazy talk, right?
Were this the only incident involving Bill Belichick and the dark arts, we might be able to dismiss the whole thing.
But this isn’t the first time that he’s called upon outside forces to aid him and his team.
The Fog. The Mist. And Monsters.
Does anyone recall the game against the Atlanta Falcons on October 23 of 2017?
