  • I'm fully convinced every fan in the NFL either dislikes Payton or just doesn't care one way or the other. N.O. fans are forced to drink the kool-aid so we should forgive them. Any objective observer of football has to think this guy embarrasses his team week in and week out. And he's ugly.

    Golly, now i'm just being hurtful. :(

    Why all this contraversy about bad calls and missed calls? The NFL has sideline reviews, booth reviews, reviews by the Central Scrutinizer in NY, and coaches challenges. Everything should be perfect...seeing as every other play is reviewed so we get more commercials in!

    That describes just about every coach in the NFL.

    Pass interference or non-pass interference calls or non-call CANNOT be reviewed or challenged.

    That IS where the BS biased feeling refs come into deciding the momentum of which team gets puffed up and charged up. And bad calls or non-calls will deflate the excitement and CRUSH hopes that should be joyous celebrations.

    It seems some teams HAVE TO play harder to overcome BS refs and their opponents to win.

    I think refs bet on who's going to win. If they bet 1000.00 on an underdog for say 2 to 1 odds, I could see them not calling a 35-yard defensive pass interference. Even if half the country and ALL the fans in the stadium saw it. It happened in the Vik. & Saints game! The no-call went in favor for the Vikings!

    That call might have changed the momentum sooner. The Saints still had it in the pocket and that one guy BLEW it by trying to tackle with a body block tackle THAT DIDN'T EVEN TOUCH Diggs!

    I just want fair games. I see holding on almost every play nowadays.

    Don’t forget the non penalty on Diggs for throwing his helmet in the end zone and the lack of any excessive celebration call... I’m certain those missed penalties would have changed the outcome... insert rolling eyes here.

    You're commenting on things that happened after the game was OVER. Go back and look at the clock....insert shaking head here.

    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. ;)

    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

    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.
