      Watch the No Holding calls on Lion's Hutchinson as he spins his way in. They tackle him which is usually a hold. But the NFL Owners all make more money in the playoffs, ask me, a LIONS fan who's ownership is the same family as the last time they won the title., 1967, I mean 1957. (Too young to know.). They hold him by his jersey with hands literally double wrapped and unable to release but no calls. . There are teams with stretch and tear away jerseys this year and no one stopping them, Unreal! Obvious!. No shirt tackles as shirts stretch as they shirt stretching like rubber bands. They had rules about this and there they are. Didn't test? Hard to grip slick material and it stretches, too. Jerseys are not supposed to stretch five feet. Ridiculous and obvious. Why is t allowed? oh, the league favorite draws use them this year, Surprise?.

      Most people don’t understand how much money is involved. In close games, the bookie or gambling company wins both ways. Your team might win but not by the points to cover or your team loses but it’s too close. Then count the halftime beats where it looks like your team is losing. You change your bets but then your team wins.

    You missed one of the biggest factors behind these fixes. Billion dollar stadiums are routinely financed with municipal bonds that require public support. The Bucs stadium was built in 1998. Seattle's new stadium completed in 2002. Super Bowl wins or appearances happen within 5 years before or after every new stadium built over the past 40 years. Is that 10 year window too much for you to believe? Check it out. Teams without new stadiums go many decades without a Super Bowl. Key point. You don't always get a win. You get an appearance.

You can complain all you want about that bad call, but Drew Brees simply didn't have the arm he used to have and was playing at a diminished capacity. In fact he retired after that. The Saints lost that one. They had several opportunities to win that game, but didn't.

      The aforementioned percentages fit perfectly with the game of baseball. Two of, at the very least, the top six teams will feature, meaning the match up is fairly even. Considering the best ball club is guaranteed to lose 1/3 of their games while the worst team loses 2/3, when matching up two of the top teams one winning four straight is almost never going to happen. That means the series usually ends in five, six or seven games. It simply doesn't go seven games more often than it mathematically should.

    Back in the 1980s, I worked in a local family-owned restaurant, and I had to work on the day of Super Bowl XX. My boss, the owner of the restaurant, was there to watch the game on the bar's TV, along with our regulars. Well, when the game started, he told me he was going to make a lot of money on the game, because he knew about some people (organized crime people, I assume) who had fixed the outcome. At the beginning of each quarter, he told me what the score was going to be at the end of each quarter. When he was correct each time, he said to me, "See, I told you. Big money!"

    All very valid points - good research. No professional head coach would change the game plan 2 days before the championship game without ulterior motive, as in SB37. As well as keeping the same verbiage that the opposing coach knows. If the officiating in SB40 wasn't rigged, it is certainly the worst officiating in SB history. The officiating in the Saints/Rams NFC championship game was the absolute worst. Unfortunately, legalized gambling and promotion by the NFL is only going to make this problem worse.

    I watched the Chiefs-Bengals tonight. I'm not a big fan of either team, but the zebras gave the Chiefs gift after gift. The worst was giving the Chiefs a free timeout, when the refs said that they needed to slightly change the position of the ball after THEY set it up to be snapped. Then, when the Bengals stopped the Chiefs on 3rd down on that play, the officials suddenly said that the play didn't count, because of a clock issue. But they let the play run before they did anything! I watched it over and over again. If KC had been successful on 3rd, the play would stand. When it failed, they gave KC do-overs.

The taunting call for Wiley waiving his arms (the chiefs just had a big play and wpuld have been on like the bengals 30 but instead were on the chiefs 40) is what led to the fumble and later a bengals score so you really cant say that the refs gave the Bengals the game.

      Example:
      2020, game 7. Detroit at Atlanta.
      DET 16 - ATL 14, 1:12 in the 4th.
      DET has no timeouts left, ATL has one.
      ATL has the ball 1st and 10 on the left hash just inside at DET's 10.
      Taking a knee or rushing for even 0 gain = clock still rolls. 1:12 down to just over 30 seconds.
      Center the ball on 2nd down -- even no gain = ball on 10yd line. Let clock roll down to 3.
      Take a time out.
      Kick a GW FG.
      Done....
      Instead ATL/Todd Gurley scores a TD... Then ATL gets the 2 point conversion.
      ATL 22 - DET 16.
      DET marches 75 yards down the field in 1:05.... gets a TD + 1 point
      DET wins 23 - ATL 22
      Need examples... with that information above.
      Even if a team was up by 10 and stops short of the goal line = ends the game...
      Not messing around with a potential comeback. And besides only a handful of games in the last 30 years have seen 2 TD faves, so "point spread" is a tough thing to show.

UNITAS is the true GOAT of the Q.B. position. In 1964 I was an impressionable 10 year old . Living through 50 losing seasons wasn't fun, but I didnt waiver. It was worth it when Peyton arrived. Win lose or draw. I will always be a joyous Colts man, and you will just be a fan.

    I hadn't considered this until I remembered Seattle's loss by not running Marshan Lynch into the endzone from a half yard out & PASSING??? instead. Worst call in history. Lynch quit football, not just the team. You put the beast in beast mode to plow in!!! How did that NOT happen???

    • @Twotontessie
      @Twotontessie ปีที่แล้ว +4

      Caroll blew the time management. He was never good at that. I think he was worried about the clock and tried to sneak a pass in so there was time for another running attempt on third down? Plus a timeout. People tend to forget Lynch really wasn’t that great in those situations. He fumbled in the NFC title game the year before from the one. He was someone you wanted to get a head of steam and churn through linebackers and safeties in open space.
      The fact also was the pass was a good call against that goal line defense … the players didn’t execute. If our receiver sets the pick and the throw isn’t late no one says anything about the call. It would have been a “genius call.” That’s sports. A bad call is always the one the players don’t execute.

      Simple if they ran beast mode he would have gotten mvp and he didn't talk to reporters which is a bad look for the nfl. Carrol wanted Wilson to win mvp instead of Brady. The next season on a half yard situation carrol called a Wilson pass again then was the end of legion of boom. Sherman called carrol on it after the game to reporters and left to San Francisco. Seattle hasn't done anything since. BTW carrols assistant did same thing in Atlanta pats superbowl. Try to pass from the 20 yard line with an 8 point lead and got sacked. 3 runs burn the clock and get a extra point for 11 point lead with under 2 minutes is how it should have ended. 2 coaches from Seattle losing 2 superbowls by refusing to run so pats could win.

      @@Twotontessie that's exactly what happened. It was just time ticking away and Belichick not calling time out. The crazy thing about people thinking that was rigged or a gimme is that the defensive back has to catch the ball while being run into by the intended receiver. What happens if Butler drops it? How did Butler know it was coming? Did Carroll tell him? If Butler drops it, the Seahawks have two more cracks at the end zone. They also overlook that Seattle made that call to pass precisely because they're thinking, "New England is expecting a run here. Let's throw it and catch them by surprise."

      Seattles linemen on offense and defense could not raise a hand above their waists without drawing a holding call while Pittsburg was allowed to do anything. After awhile the linemen learned who was in charge of the game and that was that. The officials even made sure that was not going to be all cause Pittsburg kept needing more and more help and they got it at every turn. After the game Holmberg got a one time only ever in the NFL where he the coach criticized the officiating and he never got fined for it. Years later one of the officials did step up to say so far as the only thing he regretted while working was officiating in this super bowl. It was so bad I could not bring myself to watch another NFL game for 3 years afterwards and the city of Detroit still stinks to this day.

    Robbins mental health event was wholly or heavily a result of the change. Super Bowl I’m sure has a certain stress level, but he and others ideally lower it through thorough prep. His statement directly discussing insufficient time for necessary time to prep seems completely rational. Shifting to pass heavy could’ve been an honest change based on film, info, etc. But the HC/staff not having seemingly any significant dialogue with the players before implementing was massively irresponsible at a minimum, and this would be the case without Barret or anyone else being so mentally affected.
