    It all evens out in the end... there were at least 5 roughing the passer penalties and a couple more pass interference calls against the Saints that were missed in 09, which absolutely cost the Vikings an NFC Championship then.

    Part of me thinks that to a certain extent, these games are as scripted by the league office as the WWE, and the ref’s job is to guide the outcome as much as possible.


    I agree 100% with that. I've been telling my wife and people that certain cities have to win to keep the fans coming to the stadiums. NFL merchandise sales have alot of influence too. It seems to be getting obvious but I did say some teams loose by beating themselves like the Saints did in the end. No ref had to weigh in on that play. ;)
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Doubt you could say Brees purposely through that interception

    You can’t, and he didn’t... I don’t mean to imply that I believe they really are doing it, but sometimes things do give the impression of being somewhat fishy.

    My new crossovers are Vikings colors. I may just have to bust out my Viking horn helmet and 50th Anniversary Vikings jersey this weekend.

    I used to live a half mile from the stadium where Daunte Culpepper played for UCF. I used to work a quarter mile from the stadium where Percy Harvin played for Florida. :p

    I'm ready to watch some officials call an honest game or two.

    My wife might be able to stay in the same room this Sunday if they do. B)

    Well my grandson has had his Diggs Jersey for a couple of years now, matter of fact he was sporting it one day on while having lunch with a Polk member thanks for the lunch (Teekay), so hes not a new Diggs fan he has liked him a while. Our hunting cabin is north of Detroit Lakes where Thelien is from, and my uncle is in the same retirement home in Detroit Lakes that Adam Thelien's Grandfather is at. Skyler wore his Diggs Jersey to school today and got lots of compliments, and took some heat from the Packer fans but he said he liked all the attention. It's a big game sunday go Vikings!!! BTW im wearing my Robert Smith Jersey on sunday going old school.

    Jags were the better team out of the gate on both offensive and defense. It looked very bleak being a Pat's fan.
