Sure, the postgame exchange between the Patriots' Bill Belichick and the Colts' Tony Dungy was quite chilly after their teams met last month. But Dungy doubted it was because his coaching counterpart was angry over his earlier comments about New England's spying scandal.
During an interview on HBO's ``Costas Now'' that will air Tuesday night, Dungy was asked whether ``frosty'' was the proper characterization of their brief handshake.
``Well, it probably was,'' Dungy said. ``But that's Bill. Bill has always been that way with me.''
Dungy told host Bob Costas that he had not heard from Belichick about his comments in September that the Patriots being caught spying was a ``really sad day for the NFL.''
``But what I meant was you had so many people looking at this team and this organization,'' Dungy said. ``They've won three Super Bowls. We're talking about them as maybe the best team ever. ... And to have something like that happen, it just lets people say, 'Oh, you know, this is how you win.' Or, 'This is OK, as long as you win.' And I didn't think it was good for the NFL.''
