    It's crazy. Seems Seattle lucks out every time on these Monday Night Football games. :snicker:

    Browns fan here, so no axe to grind either way....

    Look at it like the neighborhood play at 2nd base in baseball...the ump is looking for the general flow of things. The defender did a good job of selling it in real time. The back fag was likely looking at the chalk line and didn't see the defender flick it ob.

    Why upstairs didn't call down to the field and ask them to take a look? Who knows? The nfl is also a theater of the mind, just like the wiggy show. Carefully managed controversy sells cases of Bud and new cars, and everyone laughs all the way to the marble bank. Did Blobbin really shit her pants while jogging? Probably not. But we're still talking about it. Likewise, all nba series go 7 games; most prime time nfl games are close until the end, blah blah blah.

    Buy another case of Coke Zero. Lease another new Lincoln. Complain about whatever stupid thing wiggy says next. You're in the zone, kid, you're in the zone*

    *see Robert Heinlen's excellent 1941 short story By His Bootstraps.

    The Calvin Johnson Rule, the picked up PI flag, this. That's just the last few years. Just a few days ago there was talk of the NFL requesting to play the Redskins game in Detroit due to the hurricane. That would have been the third non Lions game Detroit has hosted in the past four years. The NFL is always glad to say fuck you as a thanks.

    Can't wait for the "sorry bout that" to go along with the myriad of missed calls in the Dallas playoff game last year. Motherfuckers.

    A young man playing high school football in Seattle died from injuries sustained on the field this week, two deaths in two weeks for high school players as the billionaire owners rake in millions a week.

    It's seems like the only person in the league that even knew it was a rule was the retired ref doing commentary.

    And there's the referee who's paid to know the rules and do his job looking right at the player and the ball. I swear the NFL is becoming the WWE. :snicker:

    The strip was a more a great play by KC than a bad play by CJ.
    You can't fault him as he is clearly focused on shitting his pants.

    Referee impotence aside... fucking Lions. 205 rushing yards on the season. Tonight Calvin gets overthrown twice on what could have been huge gainers and then when they do get him the ball he fumbles. His career has essentially been wasted just like Barry Sanders. What other NFL franchise can claim not only being historically shitty but also having two of the greatest specimens in NFL history and flushing them both down the god damn toilet?

    Now the referee is saying it wasn't an "overt" knock out. Oh so it was by mistake?? Way to try to cover your ass for not knowing the rules and your job. Unreal. :rolleyes:

    I wonder if he could tell that Howard wears a wig and has capped teeth.

    No Lion was anywhere close to recovering that ball... It was going out of bounds anyway.

    After ESPN jacked themselves off over it for an hour, they finally asked their fossilized retired head referee how he would've called it if his back judge had missed the call and he said he'd have let it go.

    This isn't Fail Mary 2...

    I read that the Lions are the only NFL franchise that loses money.
