Can this be removed? It has served its purpose, and looks bad when editing adds more and more asterisks.

I love the fact that when I type "Patriots*" an * is added

When you edit a post, delete the existing asterisk(s) and only one will show up when you hit send.

But if you hate the asterisk even if there's just one, it's something we can discuss. Lets see what everyone else has to say. Petition to remove the Patriots* asterisk 230572241

I personally like it. The Patriots* should always and forever have an asterisk associated with their name as they cheated their way to multiple championships in the 2000s. I vote no.

The Patriots* cheated us out of at least one Super Bowl. Here's why I, like Iowa, will always associate an asterisk with the Patriots* ...

Quote :

From the Sept. 2015 "Outside the Lines" report:

... Inside a room accessible only to Belichick and a few others, they found a library of scouting material containing videotapes of opponents' signals, with detailed notes matching signals to plays for many teams going back seven seasons. Among them were handwritten diagrams of the defensive signals of the Pittsburgh Steelers, including the notes used in the January 2002 AFC Championship Game won by the Patriots* 24-17.

"Oh, they knew," former Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward said of the Patriots* after Spygate broke. "They were calling our stuff out. They knew, especially that first championship game here at Heinz Field [in 2002]. They knew a lot of our calls. There's no question some of their players were calling out some of our stuff."

https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/from-cheating-claims-to-trash-talking-steelers-Patriots*-rivalry-full-of-bad-blood

After that chamionship loss, I sat in disbelief as I watched the postgame interviews. Ward said something that stuck with me. I've searched for the quote over the years but have never been able to find it anywhere, so the following is a close paraphrase of what he said. Remember, this was before spygate broke ...

They knew everything we were doing. It's almost like they were in the huddle with us.
