New England Patriots head coach and the NFL’s grumpy old uncle Bill Belichick went on a tirade against meteorolgists on Friday with an ire that is generally reserved for the press, his opponents and clothes that fit.

“You know, it is what it is. You know as well as I do, it could start one way and change during the game. we have to be ready for whatever it is, but my experience of going with the forecast in this area two days before the game, I mean I’d bet a lot that they’re wrong, just based on history because they’re almost always wrong. An hour before the game, maybe. You might have something to work with there. I think [if] you start game planning for what the weather is going to be and you game plan wrong, you’ve wasted a lot of time.”

“Look, I’m not saying I could do it better than them, I’m just saying they’re wrong a lot,” Belichick said.

“That’s a fact. They’re wrong a lot. We all make mistakes. I’m not being critical of them, I’m just saying I don’t think you can go based on that.”

Not one to let the fine reputation of meteorologists get unfairly slandered, the Weather Channel’s Mike Bettes took to the air to address all of the Hooded One’s comments by breaking down the Weather Channel’s predictions for game time temperatures versus the actual conditions. And while Bettes does a good job defending meteorology from the wrath of Belichick, he comes off awfully defensive.

You mad, Bettes?
