  1. How the heck did he get injured?  A can of corn fell off the top shelf in his house and hit him in the head?
  2. Tillman Most Likely Out

    Are we surprised?  I'm surprised Tillman lasted this long.  Sucks though, he was having a good year.
  3. Walking Dead Season 6

    This show is the Nickelback of TV shows way too often.
  4. Rainbow Six Siege beta

    FYI open beta starts tomorrow and lasts all weekend for all platforms. Last chance for me to decide if I want to buy this.
  5. Jessica Jones

    Best Marvel villain yet IMO.  Tennant slayed that role.
  6. Well, if they were in their airspace, and I tend to believe Turkey as I doubt they'd do it otherwise, then that is what happens.   They apparently got tons of warnings and wouldn't leave.  You can't blame Turkey, as they can't really show weakness with all the crazy stuff going on and sharing a border with Syria.  
  7. Do you work for the NFL?  You sound great at towing the company line lol. The NFL can do whatever they want, they will not lose ratings, only gain.  Bad press doesn't harm the NFL.  The NFL has so many homer fans (no offense, but like you) who would never believe anything bad is happening.  You are a clear example that they can do whatever they want to influence ratings and have no backlash.   The officiating has gotten worse every year the last 4 years.  At this point the replacement refs were just as competent as the refs right now.   The NFL handled the Rice incident terribly, but do you think it harmed their ratings?  Not one person probably stopped watching because of that.  They can't fail.
  8. There was a lot of calls over those games that were unreal, not just that one.  And for other teams, the Seattle vs Detroit game where Seattle kicked the ball out of the endzone but got it at the 1 instead of a touchback and Lions ball, yeah. If the owners cared about officiating and thought Goodell was to blame, they'd fire him.  He works for them, not the players.  They keep him because they don't care about that, because business is good and better each year, despite what is happening.  
  9. NFL refs and reffing inconsistencies

    Then leave rookie.
  10. It's funny because if we lost the Philly-Colts-Packers games you would be signing a different tune.  The calls in the second half of those games were blatantly terrible.  The NFL has a win-win situation.  The refs make bad calls and the team they want wins (Luck getting his season back on track, Rodgers showing how great he is) and if it doesn't work out, the team getting screwed completely forgets because they won.   If you look back on those calls, I implore you to, you'll realize how shady things were.    We just happened to fight through the garbage calls and still win, which is a testament to our team this year. And as far as merch and whatnot goes, it doesn't matter, it's all profit sharing.  Richardson obviously loves his money and the NFL, and if you think he wouldn't fall in line you are crazy.  Like I said, if the league makes money, HE makes money.  We don't need another JR pie chart to know this fact.   I don't think it's a crazy conspiracy between thousands of players and coaches and whatnot, but those refs continue to get worse, face no consequences, and somehow throw out calls that favor the more popular teams.   Sure, if you're one of those people that believe 50 coincidences can happen all at once, fine, ignorance is bliss, but for a lot of us, it's hard to do that with what is going on.   Are the refs just bad?  Maybe I could believe that, if something would be done.  But each week there is the same terrible ones out there and year to year, the same ones.  Rules get more muddled, refs get worse.  Shouldn't it get better?  The only thing that makes sense is a) they are told to learn certain ways and are immune to the bad call coverage or b) the NFL just doesn't care, but seeing how much money the NFL rakes in I doubt they just "don't care".  
  11. Gano's leg strength

    OP is right, he hasn't had his same distance as last year, across all the games.  Not terrible though, just more average now instead of almost being a sure thing.
  12. You're just blind.  The Saints Superbowl was the most watched superbowl, and one of the most watched TV events period.  The Saints don't have a billion fans, but because OF THE STORYLINE people watched.  So yes, storylines DO matter, sorry you can't see this but I envy your ignorance (and it's bliss as they say).   If you read what I posted, you would see that the Saints got a treasure trove of dump truck size calls during that playoff run.  They even let Favre get hit after the play at least 10 times in that game just to get them there. I don't think the Cowboys have close to as many fans as they used to, and a lot of other things go into determining if a team will bring in advertising dollars.   How big are they as spenders, their ages, etc.  Yes, the Packers could definitely bring in more advertising money.  Rodgers is way more exciting than the Cowboys as a whole.    Harbough vs Harbough (and the Ray Lewis retiring storyline) was huge as well and people WERE interested.   Ray Lewis isn't bad for the NFL, he's popular, and he's even doing pregame shows now.   Also, you clearly didn't read the part that I said it doesn't always work out for the NFL, sometimes, a team just pushes through it.  I believe the players and the coaches are playing to win, I really do.  The refs, have no consequences for being bad and worse each year, what other job has that?  There is a reason.  Look at the calls going on this year, it's obvious. The ratings for the superbowl have went up each year, they know what they are doing.  The NFL also has to give back money to advertisers if ratings dip in the SB, etc.    The NFL can legally rig games, they are in the same classification as the WWE, and if you don't think vegas is pulling the strings in every sporting event, I don't know what to tell you.  They've been doing this for over a century.      
  13. Rank our remaining games from toughest to softest

    1. Cowboys - Because they are good with Romo but mostly the refs will NOT want us to win this, especially it being on Thanksgiving. 2. Giants - They seem to sometimes have our number out of nowhere.  You never know what Eli you get, he could throw 4 td's or 4 ints. 3. Falcons both times, just because, division rivalry and how it always goes. 4. Saints - Dude that defense... or lack of 5. TB - Not as bad as people think though.
  14. If you don't think the NFL tries to push games one way with the use of their refs, you are delusional.   There is a reason officiating gets worse every year and there are hardly any consequences.  They do their best to influence but sometimes the other team just wins, which is what we did.  Just watch the second half of Colts, Green Bay, game.  Watch some of those Philly game calls.  It's around the league too.  The NFL continues to make the rule book more muddled and confusing so the refs can use it however they want to dictate a game.    Then all the Superbowls have story-lines the last decade.  Katrina for Saints (after the refs handed playoff games to the Saints that year and let them late hit Favre 15 times in one game), Patriots multiple times, Ray Lewis retiring and Harbough vs Harbough, offense vs defense in the Broncos vs Seattle, etc.  Wait till Thursday vs Cowboys.  I hope I'm wrong about that game, but get ready for incoming BS calls.
