  • Don Shula calls Bill Belichick “Beli-cheat”

    - Don Shula calls Bill Belichick “Beli-cheat” -

    "Since the 2007 Spygate controversy, Patriots coach Bill Belichick has been referred to as “Beli-cheat” a number of times, but usually by fans of rival teams. Not by Hall of Fame coaches.

    But that’s the name Don Shula, the winningest coach in NFL history, uses to refer to Belichick.

    Dave Hyde of the Sun-Sentinel writes in a profile of Shula at the age of 85 that when the subject of Belichick came up, that unflattering nickname was Shula’s response.

    “Beli-cheat?” Shula says. ...

    It’s not something we would have expected to hear from Shula, who rarely speaks out or makes waves in retirement. Shula must not have warm feelings toward Belichick. Or Beli-cheat."
