Years after the fact LaDainian Tomlinson has a message for Bill Belichick: he regrets saying Belichick had no class.

Down 21-13 of the 2006-07 AFC Divisional Round the Patriots scored the game's last 11 points and a San Diego field goal fell short as time expired.

The way the Patriots handled themselves after didn't sit well with Tomlinson who had to be restrained by fellow players while angrily yelling at members of the Pats.

"I would never react in that way" he said after that game. "I was very upset. When you go to the middle of our field and start doing the dance Shawne Merriman is known for that is disrespectful. They showed no class and maybe that comes from the head coach."

Going after the opponent is one thing but calling out Belichick is another. It's rare that a player would publicly talk about a coach and even more rare that a star athlete like Tomlinson would do so regarding a great coach in Belichick.
