I was responding to your point about Boston being a relevant sports town. I think a team playing for the championship is relevant. More importantly there are plenty of championships in that city through the decades.
You are right about the 80's for Patriots as I was thinking about their loss to the Packers. They got beaten pretty badly in that one as well But again, I think an appearance is the Superbowl counts as "relevant"
I don't kow how the Patriots winning 3 superbowls by a totasl of 9 points makes them irrevelant in the sports world. Ask the Buffalo fans if thetre city was more relevant this decade or the 80's or now.
I am not claiming here that Boston is the best sports town. I am just pointing out that they have teams through the decades that make it a relevant to the sports world.

EDIT: Ask the Buffalo Bills if the 80's were good for them. They kept coming close too. Also the Patriots have won all three of their SB by a total of 9 points. Just good enough I guess.
