Sorry I'm late.
Had to one up ya Professor.
Guess Jeff had a long night.
Sorry, have to repost this.
All my Fudge haters GOTTA check this out.
Actually just forgot to post the thread before going out this afternoon. Though it wasn't a short night, either.
Your still all right in my book.
Laces OUT! Finkle...I mean, Cundiff...
How long until Cundiff gets cut? Right now? Tonight? Tomorrow morning?
they've left without him and dowsed his clothes in Tom Brady Aftershave.
I think he was a former Cowboy too.
It's in their DNA to choke.
Jeff, you should write an entry on the corruption of professional sports and its ownership by gambling interests. There is no conceivable other rationale why the Ravens TD was not reviewed. None whatsoever.
While I'm not sure it was a TD at this point (since the corrupt NFL didn't do a replay I did not see the play enough to know), the fact that is was not reviewed will never, ever, ever, be justifiable.
As usual, it is the pretty poster boy who gets the benefit.
It wasn't called a TD SC.
If it were, then it would've automatically been reviewed.
Besides, Harbaugh had a challenge left, I think, and could have challenged the call if he wanted.
After watching the Megatron non-catch last year, it looked like the right call.
I was inside two minutes, so Harbaugh had no option to throw the challenge flag. Ergo, corrupt NFL. There is NO FUCKING WAY that play was clear-cut enough to NOT review.
Oh yeah, it was inside 2 minutes.
But it all goes back to the "completing the process rule"
"The rule in question states, "If a player goes to the ground in the act of catching a pass (with or without contact by an opponent), he must maintain control of the ball after he touches the ground, whether in the field of play or the end zone. If he loses control of the ball, and the ball touches the ground before he regains control, the pass is incomplete. If he regains control prior to the ball touching the ground, the pass is complete."
In this case, the receiver lost control. Like the CJ non-catch against the Bears last year, it seems counter intuitive, but thems are the rules.
Too close to let go - absolutely no rationale for not reviewing it. And I *guarantee* they would have given Brady the replay.
I'm not saying the call would have been changed, just that they would have looked again.
Am I the only one who thought that pass into the endzone on 3rd and 1 was a catch (last play before the field goal)? It looked like he caught it, put down at least one foot, and then the ball was stripped. Am I wrong?
I certainly thought, within two minutes, it deserved a review.
Right on, Doc. It is hard to imagine that the score been reversed and Brady been throwing the ball that there had been no replay. Unless the big gambler money had bought it the other way.
Maybe you are, maybe you are not. The fact that it was not reviewed is inexcusable. And another nail in the coffin of professional sports. I wonder which big bookies bought this game.
Dave, did you ever make your picks in the pizza contest? If so, who did you pick?
i always pick my heart rather than my brain. The obvious big money for the book and the league is the Giants-Pats "rematch". Maybe the 9ers will fuck them up. If games are one-sided enough, they can't be fixed.
To answer, I picked
So I have Pats D left for the bowl, so if my points make it I'm at least eligible since I have a D left.
If anything, the FBI needs to check out Cundiff's bank account to see if there's been any questionable deposits from an off-shore bank.
No, that was just a guy choking under pressure. The replay ref is the one to investigate.
the only thing I can say about The :"F"ing Patriots going to the SB...FRACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
or for you MB...FRANK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I want to show you my shocked face!!!!
One job, one kick, and three points decided that game.
Congrats Cutler! Gonna have a baby.
Gonna name him after Martz lol
"Bears blog: Report: Baby on way for Cutler, Cavallari "
Perhaps they should make sure to get married then?
Plan "A" didn't work for Cavallari, so I guess she went with old reliable plan B. "B" as in "Baby."
One of younger brothers refers to that tactic as "pulling the goalie"...
Somebody 'forgot' to take her pill when she looked like losing her high profile boyfriend. There's a new one.
Congrats Cutty. Say goodbye to sex.
Paterno dead. Victims of Sandusky want to bury him face down.
Under 2 mins to play. Looks like the 9ers have the Giants right where they want them.
Under 1 1/2 mins to play. Looks like the Giants have the 9ers right where they want them.
Overtime, the Giants and the 9ers have each other right where they want them.
Well, both the Harbaugh's let one slip away. Rematch, Pats vs Giants.
Playoff experience wins the day.
Heart goes out to Lee Evans. Can we take another Patriot Lombardi? Brady tying Montana would be easier to take than another Manning victory though. I hope we get that Licht guy as GM ....
Giants are a gutty bunch. Even Eli.
Well, my prognostications had the correct winners but not a lot else. Flacco DID, keep pace with the the Brady bunch. Nice Joe.
The 49ers avoided the emotional hangover from last week I predicted but unfortunately for them, they did fulfill my prophecy of losing it on turnovers. Those two fumbles ( Both by Kyle Williams, son of Sox GM Ken Williams, ouch!) were the ball game.
The Pats don't scare the Giants. I'll go with the team playing better defense. Another ring for the Big Apple Boys and the first Super Bowl Win for a team with less than 10 regular season wins.
Per the "no catch" by the Ravens, at first I too thought it should have been a TD, but in the slo-mo I just saw, it looks like the ball was slapped out before he got that 2nd foot down. Still, no WAY it should have gone by without a review. NO way!
They review all scoring plays, they should include any plays that COULD be ruled as TDs.
And for heavens sake take the field official OUT of the review equation. It's a HUGE waste of time and a clear conflict of interest.
The pizza contest should be interesting, since all four teams each scored two touchdowns today. There could be up to 7 finalists.
On a side note, just watched my first and last 30 minutes of American Idol. Steven Tyler looks like he has more make up and lip stick on than the chick on the show (without the "gloss"). I can't believe people actually watch that shit.
Amazing, isn't it?
Also, Tyler has got to be one of the ugliest mugs on TV. Glad I don't have one any more :-)
