    Sorry John, Oakland....

    Your Vikes got beat by the BILLS ?

    Even KC lost to the Colts. Was kinda expecting that one though. As much as I like Mahomes, they give up a heck of a lot of points too.

    Packers destroyed Dallas, really thought Dallas would have done better.

    Dallas was missing their All Pro LT and the guy who replaced him wasn't up to the task of blocking as the GB end blew by him numerous times. The defense was horrible, they seemed flat.

    Maybe when Jerry dies we'll get a real coach, not a yes man and GM. I guess it could be worst as we could have an owner like Washington has.

    Ha! No, some random fan next to the booth. Screaming non-stop. Must be the cheap beer!

    Peyton was cheering Tom to break 72000 yards. Something he never did.... :D
    He can't cheer for his brother, so he cheers for his friend.

    Damn I don't remember the Steelers moving out to LA. The Steeler fans may outnumber the Charger fans in the late game.

    Anyone else think the officials are still in the tank for Rogers and the Pack? So many penalties called against Detroit when there was no foul, and non-calls when it was plain as day....

  • nooshinjohnnooshinjohn Posts: 22,797
    And the game was just sealed by another crap call in favor of Green Bay.. Flowers had never been called in his career for hands to the face, and tonight twice, and both times replay shows they were bogus calls. One resulted in a touchdown and the last one a game winning FG....

    Sick of watching officials decide games by stupidity. It has to either be that or the league is fixing games by using officials to tailor outcomes.

    Found elsewhere on the WWW and it seems to make some sense...

    It wasn't always but now it is a $32 Billion SHARED REVENUE CORPORATION, and outcomes can't be left to chance. The NFL is a corporation with 32 departments. The total league revenues are shared equally so there is no punishment for owning Jacksonville vs Kansas City vs Dallas.

    A few fundamentals need to be established:
    First, the NFL possesses an Anti-Trust Exemption to the law granted to it by President John F. Kennedy, which ultimately allows the NFL to classify itself as "entertainment" rather than sport, as well as incorporate itself as a single entity instead of the 32 separate "franchises" they would want you to believe.

    Second, in a 2004 lawsuit vs the NFL, the NFL argued they are not a collection of 32 teams, but a single entity. They compete as a unit in the entertainment marketplace, and not subject to Anti-Trust laws." Like the WWE.

    Third, NFL Referees are part-time employees of the NFL. NFL refs make less than $75,000 per season. They work for the league, period. Referees are bound by NFL mandated gag orders which prevent them from talking to the media.

    Next:
    The "Patriots" post 9/11 run.
    The Saints 40 years of losing, then winning a title for a Katrina ravaged city.
    The Harbaugh Bowl
    Marketing MAGIC !!!

    Next:
    In 2007 a Jets season ticket holder sued the NFL for $185 million and the case reached the US Supreme Court. The Jets fan argued that, all Jets fans are entitled to refunds because they paid for a ticket to a legitimate sporting event. Had he been aware that the games were not real then we would not have gone.

    The Judge stated that a ticket to a game only provides you access to the stadium. The fan entered the stadium, witnessed a game, therefore he did not suffer any damages. The fan's lawyer disagreed and argued that the NFL committed consumer fraud.

    Judges ruled that fixing a game for entertainment purposes was completely LEGAL.

    Next:
    In 2000 Art Model, a storied and respected owner of the Baltimore Ravens announced he was selling the team. Miraculously, even with one of the worst offenses in NFL history, they won the Super Bowl. And the Ravens were subsequently sold to Steve Busciotti for a record price.

    Robert Kraft and John Mara are two of the most business savvy and highly respected NFL owners. Kraft is in charge of the NFL TV broadcast committee and also leads all television negotiations for the NFL. Kraft also is on the board of Viacom (CBS). Kraft negotiated a record TV deal resulted in $24 Billion in revenue.

    Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank was interviewed saying "It is predetermined that these two teams would be here, I wish my team was selected to be in the Super Bowl, but these two gentlemen deserve it".

    There are many more examples, and no one wants this to be true.....But it is. The NFL said it themselves in court. We are entertainment and we can manage outcomes as we see fit. We're EXEMPT. Thanks for reading all of this. It is compiled from many sources
