Bill Belichick is a National Football League (NFL) legend and a guaranteed future Hall of Famer. He has won six Super Bowls with the New England Patriots and apparently you cannot achieve such unprecedented success without having a strict regime. The 67-year-old has one such regime which is 'No Social Media'.

"I hate social media. We get rid of it whenever we can...get rid of the phone, have a conversation...there's no cell phones out on the field"
"Who cares if you get 2,000 likes from people you don't even know? It's the 53 guys in the locker room that matter"
Recently Bill Belichick and the head coach of the University of Alabama were present in HBO documentary The Art of Coaching. While discussing his long career Belichick expressed his hatred for social media. Belichick was never a fan of his player continuously tweeting and posting on social media as he believes it ruins relationships. According to Belichick, he tries to get rid of social media as much as he can. The 67-year-old admitted that he prefers to have a real conversation and look at the other person in the eye instead of texting repeatedly. Bill Belichick further added that he does not care about the countless likes one gets on social media and its nothing but a distraction.
There’s 53 guys in the locker room. Those are the 53 that matter, and I don’t know if that always gets through or not. But we keep pounding away, keep trying," Bill Belichick
