WATCH: Bill Belichick Rants About ‘ChatRun,’ ‘InstantFace,’ and Evils of Social Media

We’ve posted before about New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick‘s scorn for technology. (Last season, he angrily smashed a tablet while on the sidelines during a game.)

It seems that even his recent fifth Super Bowl victory isn’t enough to get Belichick off the soapbox ranting about the evils of technology.

Appearing on CNBC Thursday, the Patriots head coach sounded off about social media, saying that he believes it serves as a roadblock to his team becoming cohesive.

“Nobody is against it more than I am,” Belichick said. “I can’t stand it. I think it’s important for us, as a team, to know each other. Know our teammates and our coaches. To interact with them is more important than to be ‘liked’ by whoever on ChatRun.”

Belichick simply cannot mask his contempt for social media. He told CNBC that he actually has rules in place to limit their social media usage.

“I do all I can to fight it,” Belichick said. “We have rules that prohibit our players from posting on ‘InstantFace,” and all that.”
