Sanders: Patriots Shouldn't Be SB Champions

Emmanuel Sanders has some strong feelings about the New England Patriots, letting them be known at a recent youth football camp.

Emmanuel Sanders is not afraid to talk and he's not going to sugarcoat. The talking continued this week at Ed McCaffrey's football camp where Sanders was a guest speaker.

Per Mike Klis of 9News in Denver, Sanders was asked by a camper if he was upset about the deflated football scandal that rocked New England's title run.

"Am I mad about Deflategate? I feel like I'm on ESPN with that question. ...Yeah, yeah, I'm kind of mad. I don't think that they should be the Super Bowl champion this year," Sanders replied.

"You aren't supposed to cheat. Cheating is not good, especially when you've got guys who are working their butts off for 365 days out of the year and one person cheats -- whether it helps them win the Super Bowl or not, they still cheated and shouldn't be a champion."

Is Sanders Right? Should the Patriots Be Stripped Of Their Title? SOUND OFF IN THE FORUMS!

This coming from a player who was pursued by the Patriots more than once in free agency, going as far as signing an offer sheet in 2013 as a restricted free agent.

Many players have shied away from commenting so critically on one of the NFL's marquee franchises, so the comments Sanders made are sure to cause an uproar from fans of both teams.
