The integrity of the NFL

Recommended Posts

 

 

LOL.... Olberman. :thumbsdown: :doh: I wouldn't believe a focking word this guys says.

So the part about independent verification should be taken as BS too? I'm genuinely interested in all opinions here,thanks.

I think the issue with the NFL is their refusal to address the horrible officiating. Hard to make them care when they are turning record profits. It's just not a priority. I hate when there is a horrible call made and so many fans say "yeah, but that's not why they lost". That's not the point. Stick to talking about the refs in that situation. It's never going to get fixed if half the fans tell the other half to shut up when it happens.

 

If you've never reffed, you have no idea how hard it is. I used to ref taekwondo sparring; we had 3 officials in a ring and 1/2 of the time the point scoring was not unanimous. So at least one of us was theoretically wrong; it often depended on your viewing angle. And this was amateur; NFL refs are making calls on the fastest/strongest/most athletic people in their profession.

 

I will say though... if a sparrer was clearly overmatched and losing big, and there was a close call (both hit each other at about the same time), I probably would give the point to the overmatched person. Again, this was amateur, and often kids, so I can't say that an NFL ref would do the same. But it's kinda human nature...

NFL decides against issuing statement admitting error in Rams-Saints, for now

1. The NFC had one elite team - the Saints - that suffered a major loss when Rankins went down and were not the same team.

2. The Chargers played their worst game of the year vs the Patriots and everyone insisted it was a poor defensive scheme that did them in.

3. The Chiefs were manhandled at the line of scrimmage in both games vs the Patriots but several lucky calls and bounces went their way to keep them in both games when they should have been blowouts both times.

 

That's all I see.

I've said it for years these games are fixed somehow. After every game I shout, "WWE! WWF!"

I was entertained. That's all I tune in for. I wake up the next day and am unaffected by the outcomes. Except in this case I won big on the Pats at +150 and the Rams at +143. :doublethumbsup:

 

I so wish I would have thrown them in a parlay.
