Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank said he was miffed at New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft for including last year's Super Bowl halftime score on the team's 283-diamond championship rings.

Last February, the Falcons coughed up a 28-3 second-half lead to the Patriots in one of the most memorable comebacks in NFL history.

"I said to Robert, 'You didn't have to do the 28-3 in the ring.' It kind of pissed me off," Blank told The New York Times in a magazine article that ran Thursday.

Blank and Kraft are close friends — albeit rival owners — and Blank expressed his frustration during dinner with Kraft in August.

The Super Bowl rings were unveiled in June and specifically included the 283 diamonds to "tell the story of the game," according to a Pats spokesman.
