The New England Patriots lost to the New York Giants 21-17 in Super Bowl XLVI and not only was the Pittsburgh Steelers fan base happy with the Patriots failure to capture their 4th Super Bowl championship, but so were a few Steelers players as both safety Ryan Clark and linebacker James Harrison let their thoughts be known about the Patriots on Twitter.
Harrison was the first to pile on with,"Told you, cheaters never win!!!!!!!!!" and followed it up with, "Lol, I\'m sorry I couldn\'t help it!!!"
Told you, cheaters never win!!!!!!!!!

Clark responded with his own tweet that said, "0-2 post spy gate! Just saying!! Cant spell ELIte w/o Eli!! Night my friends!" and Harrison retweeted it for good measure.

ETA: Recently retired Chris Hoke also chimed in with his thoughts.
Well I guess it is true... Brady and Belicheck can\'t win the big one without the videos of other teams signals... Just sayin...

Hey, I have no problem with this whatsoever and it is good to hear they feel exactly like the fan base. Why do I blog this? It is what I do and of course this will make bigger headlines. It gives us something to talk about.
I for one applaud Harrison and Clark for speaking their mind. I also applaud the Giants beating the Patriots.
