I've taken a massive step back from the NFL this year for year's past. I haven't watched a full NFL game this year outside of the Steelers and really don't plan to ever again unless they fix some glaring issues in their product. I think the product on the field is absolutely atrocious from the actual play on the field to the refs taking over games because the league now installed so many fucking rules that it's very easy to micromanage outcomes. The problem is that the rules try to be too specific and yet are completely open ended, misinterpreted, and misappropriated from week to week to the point that it's very easy to script games (Not saying it definitively happens, but it's easier now than it ever was if they chose to do it). I spent good money on Sunday to see that game and to have it be decided like that when I have seen very similar plays in other games called TDs is ridiculous.

Over the past 2 years I've found myself getting much more excited about the MLB season and I've recently started getting more and more into the NBA. From a product standpoint those two leagues are far and away better now than the NFL. I went to my first NBA game about a month ago between the Celts and Nets and the experience was fantastic.

The only way things will change is if the fans stop shelling out cold hard cash for NFL bullshit. As a former NFL die-hard I'll gladly start buying more Sox and Celtics garb.


I totally agree, I'm only watching Steelers games. And it is the rules and the reviews that kill my former enjoyment. Too many stoppages, too many rules, they could eliminate 50% of the rules and nobody would notice and nobody cares, the #1 team that wins all the games is the Zebras! LOL :lol:

I've become a soccer fan too, because I hate baseball, can't watch it. Best thing about soccer, almost no rules and almost no stoppages! and BEST OF ALL.... NO REPLAY! But the ASSHOLE AMERICAN TV Announcers keep pushing for it! Luckily Americans don't run that sport and the people from the SMART countries, hopefully won't accept the ruination of their favorite sport.

This rule is emblematic of rules that are destroying small business in the United States and this rule, like those horrible business rules and regs have to be set aside. The result of these rules is destroying the organism that they are governing.

There needs to be a separation in the rulebook between catches made in the field of play and catches made in the endzone. A catch made in the field of play by anyone should have the same consistent application with regard to the end zone . If a receiver or running back, or quarterback, any offensive player rightfully possessing the ball, has has clear possession of the ball and breaks the plane of the goal line it is a touchdown.

Any reception made inside of the endzone by anyone rightfully entitled or allowed to make a catch has to uphold the standard of control. Inside of the endzone possession has to be maintained, feet have to be in, player cannot reenter if out of bounds. The length of time for possession could be quantified, one second. That would diminish some of the wild ass clawing and punching and violence that we see on most passes into the endzone.

On Sunday James made a clean catch and established possession. He crossed the plane with possession. By logical standards that's a TD. Under the current rules of deceit and obfuscation he fulfilled the aspects of a defined catch minus the nullification enjoinder that is in conflict and contradiction with other definitions in the rule book. The same rule book would have allowed it to have been called a catch, a fumble and a recovery in the EZ by the receiver: TD. That is the call we would have heard if that was a NE TE.

All of this aligns with logic and fairness.


Very wise and thoughout post OSS. And you see the results of the interfering rules around business being removed, a thriving increasing economy. Remove the interference, let the nature take it's rightful course.

Same ref in NY made the call on ALL THREE of those NE games this year.

A heck of a lot easier when you only have to pay off 1 guy instead of a different crew of 8 every week....

No, i didn't mention what you did. It's simply common sense. Where you apply the common sense to a particular demographic is your dole.

If a receiver has to maintain possession throughout, t while in the EZ, why in the holy he'll can't a defender try to dislodge the ball anymore? Talking out of both sides of their mouth.

I agree because he caught the ball, knee was down, no contact and then made a football move (extending the ball with two hands over the goal line. Ground causing the fumble could be discussed two but after the football move/ball over the goal line, everything else should be MOOT. It was a fucking TD. Hell, there are plenty of other bullshit calls where everyone fucking knows it's a touchdown the receiver goes to the ground the ball is being juggled in the air the receiver comes down with said ball that never touched the ground yet they call it the same bullshit, didn't maintain possession while going to the ground. The ball never touches the ground......again everyone fucking knows that should be a touchdown.

Beth is spot on. NO one can convince me that there isn't bullshit involved with these calls. People pointing out the vegas spread being 3pts all week and having that TD called off is not a coincidence, it's bullshit entertainment.

Hockey is looking better and better.


I’m not buying the Vegas spread idea.

If the Vegas spread was three points all week, then the Pats didn’t cover because they only won by three.

So anyone taking the Steelers and the points cashed in whether the Pats won or the Steelers won in that situation.

Addendum: And the line kept creeping up all week...it opened at Patriots giving a point, then settled at 2.5. That must have meant the early action went to the Pats, and they ended up covering.

The over/under kept creeping up all week and settled at 53...in my mind if it was creeping up that meant a lot of early action was on the over, which didn’t happen (51 points were scored). So in that case, I could see them wanting to wipe the TD off the board if there were betting shenanigans going on (Steelers’ TD would have put the points scored at 58).

I’m not a betting man so I have no idea how Vegas benefited from a Pats’ win. Maybe someone more sophisticated can explain it.

We don't know the outcome of the 'house' and where the money was laid. Let's see those results and discuss what Thrill said.

And where can we get that data?

We do know both the spread and the over/under trended upward all week. That to me implies early action was on the Pats and the over (both make sense given past history).

Final spread was 2.5 meaning the Pats covered. Final o/u was 53 meaning the under won.

So where can we get the data on where the big money ended up?
