jamsim67 Posted February 12 Share Posted February 12 This is just my opinion, but I would hope that some of you are at least questioning the shit monster that is the NFL. Just a small sample, as I'm sure there are more narratives that go into a win or loss, and who ultimately ends up in the super bowl, but here goes. The NFL cannot have a Super Bowl team from Buffalo (hope I'm wrong). Not glamorous enough. Owners no longer care about a win or loss, pretty sure profits are split evenly across the board at the end of the season. If it's such a great accomplishment, why isn't the Super Bowl winner getting the biggest share? Owners are businessmen first, who don't give a shit about the players. If they cared about the players, we wouldn't be seeing Thursday night games, and maybe Monday as well because they'd want to make sure their best players had time to recover. Players, and coaches, to a certain extent are most likely on board, because they are making millions. And those millions are probably there for them to keep their mouth's shut. How else do you explain McDermott and his extremely soft prevent defense for 4 quarters (that they will learn from. lol)? Do you honestly believe that an NFL coach, a defensive guy, playing at home, with a chance to play in the AFC championship game is going to come out playing defense like that when trying to get to a Super Bowl? If players and coaches weren't on board, I'm sure we'd be seeing major blow-ups on the sidelines over the many bad calls, or non-calls made by the refs that we've seen the last few years. Hold on, last few years? How about the AFC and NFC championship games? The referees are not bad referees, they are doing what they were hired to do, which is to control or outright fix the games, and in the process pull the wool over our eyes. This is sports entertainment, and not real sports. They told us this in court, when the Jet fan sued the Patriots over spy gate. To much money on the table, for the owners to leave anything up to chance. When television networks, and businesses spend mega-millions to be a part the system, we will be entertained. If you're the CEO of Budweiser, and you've spent millions on advertising, you want fans to see your advertisements, and not flip the channel because the game is a blowout, and the same goes for the television networks. Go outside and play? Not on their watch. It's no accident that games are now going down to the wire, or overtime. This is not parody, it's sports entertainment, and we've been lied to. Look at situational play calling, or clock management by NFL coaches who are supposed to understand the game of football. Late in the game, with the ball and the lead, opposition has no timeouts left and you're throwing the ball? There are plenty of other situations. Just like years past, Philly and KC did not earn the trip, they were chosen and you can choose any narrative or story-line you want for why they are there. Go ahead, I'm waiting. Again, not trying to challenge anyone's belief system, as this can be hard to accept. As fans, we want to believe that everything is on the up and up and we would have won if the referee had thrown a flag for the obvious pass interference, or holding that was right in front of their eyes, but somehow ... they just missed it. Brady was never the goat, just someone chosen to carry the NFL banner and he had way to much help along the way. Even in retirement, he's still of shit. Anyway, this is way to long, just interested in what others have to say, if anything at all. And even that's cool ... 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
