Porter: 'I have natural hate for [Pats]'

FOXBORO — Miami linebacker Joey Porter didn't mince words on Wednesday when speaking of the bitter feelings he still holds toward the Patriots following the 2007 "Spygate" controversy. While not mentioning "Spygate" specifically, Porter has said, in the past, that the controversy explained why the Patriots beat his former team — the Steelers — twice in the AFC Championship. "Come to figure out some months later why we lost so, yeah, I have a natural hate for them, period, and that's going to be with me forever and that's not ever going to change," Porter said in a conference call with New England media. "You can fill in the blanks. You know exactly what I'm talking about and they know exactly what I'm talking about, and that's not ever going to change." Hear the audio of Porter's comments by visiting the football blog, It Is What It Is.
