Guy Running Up Score in Online “Madden” Game Turns Out to be Bill Belichick
An online “Madden ’25” video game player using the gamertag “HoodieLord6969″ who has been continuously running up the score against his cyber opponents was revealed today to be none other than New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick himself.
“Yeah, that ‘HoodieLord’ guy is a total dick,” said Josh Baker, 14, of Oak Grove IL, whose Indianapolis Colts lost to Belichick’s Patriots by a score of 58-3 late Wednesday evening. “Every time I play him, he builds up these massive leads by the start of the fourth quarter. And even when there’s like, thirty seconds left in the game and he’s ahead by four or five touchdowns, he’s still throwing bombs, and trying to get extra TD’s just to run up the score. What an asshole.”
“Look, it’s not up to me to stop my digital offense,” said Belichick when informed of the teenager’s comments. “It’s up to Josh to stop my digital offense. If he doesn’t like me passing deep late in the game, all he has to do is press the X button, select my WR icon, then use the D-pad to shade the post route I keep burning his ass with.”
In addition to his penchant for driving up the score, other gamers have accused Belichick of specific rules violations.
“He’s definitely using cheat codes,” remarked Milwaukee’s Allyson Flynn, 16. “He always seems to know exactly when I have a blitz called, or if I’m setting up a screen to a RB. There’s no doubt he’s running some program that shows him what plays I’m calling. But when I used my headset to tell him that I thought he was a cheating jerk, he just grumbled something about ‘misinterpreting the rulebook.'”
Belichick has remained unwilling to address the charges of improper game conduct.
“I’m not going to get into any of that. I’m just trying to focus on next week’s game right now,” he said, referring to his upcoming match on Friday against 12-year old Connor Baringer of San Antonio,TX.
