Yes, today sucked.


But watching the Broncos embarrass the 49ers as well as catching highlights of the Saints and Falcons losing will allow me to finish the day with a smile :D


So what do you do to take the sting out?

Should refs help prevent penalties?

Last night, one of the refs helped Patriots linebacker Dont'a Hightower avoid a penalty on the final game-deciding kick by telling him he was lined up too close to the long snapper.

Jets-Pats finish includes another controversial field goal try

In response to questions, the NFL says this is 'standard procedure'.

NFL calls official moving Hightower standard procedure

As mentioned in the first article, the Patriots lost a game last year because of this very penalty, so apparently it wasn't 'standard' back then.

I'd add that I can't ever remember a case of a ref walking up to a Panthers player and saying something like "You're lined up offsides. You might wanna back up a little bit."

So is this something you think the refs ought to do, or if they see someone about to screw up should they just let it happen a and throw the flag?

Probably not for the squeamish

What are you doing acting like a good sport, a decent human being and a mature adult?


Gerald McCoy responds to criticism of his good sportsmanship


Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy on Tuesday shot back at detractors who say he’s wrong for helping opponents up off the ground after a play.

“If anyone has a problem with me helping people up off the field, that’s a personal problem,’’ McCoy said after the first of two bye-week practices at One Buc Place. “It’s something you have to deal with.’’

McCoy’s habit of extending a hand to opponents to help them off the ground came up earlier this week when former Bucs guard Ian Beckles, now a talk radio host on 620 WDAE, questioned it.

During an interview with Bucs radio analyst Dave Moore, a former Bucs tight end, Beckles asked Moore what he thought of the habit. Moore defended McCoy, saying the habit had no impact on McCoy’s play between the whistles.

“If people really pay attention, then you would also notice that when someone on the opposing team gets hurt, most of time there’s one person who walks on the field and says a prayer, and that’s me,’’ McCoy said.

“That’s who I am and that’s who I’m going to be. If you don’t like it, get over it. I’m going to help people up because I’m a good sportsman and because football is temporary; sports is temporary.

“People have families and kids, wives. And 10 years down the line … what about that guy who you’re so concerned about how hard he’s going and he can’t play with his kids because he’s out there killing himself? That’s what I’m concerned about.’’

McCoy further defended his commitment to the game and to winning by pointing out that he was right back at work a day after his wife gave birth to twins this year.

“On July 15 I had twins,’’ McCoy said. “On July 16 I was up here in the rain running gassers and hitting the bags. If you know another person doing that, then you can talk to me about how nice I am.’’


McCoy had indicated previously that his willingness to be a good sport had drawn harsh criticism from former coach Greg Schiano.  If it's still happening even with Schiano gone, sounds like it might be an organizational thing (kind of like the Saints and Bengals).


It makes it easier to cheer for the Panthers knowing garbage like this doesn't happen here. 


And yeah, I'd welcome McCoy on this team if he ever left Tampa.


(would probably cost too much, though)

Underwear and cologne...

Cowboys reserve running back Joseph Randle was arrested for shoplifting


Randle was charged with a misdemeanor Class B theft of $50 to $500, according to Frisco, Texas, police. He was released on writ bond at 1:20 a.m. Tuesday.

Frisco Police Lt. Jason Jenkins said Randle is accused of attempting to steal underwear and cologne from Dillard's in Stonebriar Centre Mall.

Randle, a fifth-round pick in 2013 who is making a base salary of $495,000 this season, has rushed for 113 yards on 16 carries this season while playing behind NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray.
