In the wake of the controversial deflategate, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick received a chilly reception from fans at University of Phoenix Stadium. 

During Idina Menzel's rendition of the national anthem, the pro-Seahawks crowd booed Belichick when he popped up on the jumbotron. 

He probably didn't mind, as his team went on to win the Super Bowl 28-24.
