The NFL Had An Epic Championship Sunday and Ruined It

For the first time ever both NFL Championship games went to overtime, and the NFL ruined both games, but for different reasons.

In game one we witnessed perhaps the most egregiously bad no-call in the history of the game, as a mugging (calling it pass interference doesn’t do it justice) by an LA Rams defensive back was inexplicably missed on a key third down late in the fourth quarter. If called properly, New Orleans would have either scored a touchdown or kicked a last-second field goal and almost certainly won. Instead they settled for a field goal allowing LA time to kick a long last-second field goal themselves, tying the game and sending it to OT where the Rams won. What makes it even more inexplicable is that a ref is seen standing no more than five yards away clearly looking at the play! How does this clown have a job??!! And it gets better: there were clearly not one but TWO penalties on the play: the other being helmet-to-helmet contact.

In game two, The hated New England Pats and the KC Chiefs staged an epic back-and-forth game that went to OT tied 31 all. The game was then basically won………..by flipping a coin. Yea! Other than NE fans, everyone on the planet wanted to see KC and Patrick Mahomes get one last shot at glory, but it was not to be. The NFL needs to change its OT rules for playoffs immediately: give each team one possession, regardless if the team getting the ball first scores a TD. Play 10 minutes minimum, or 15. Adopt the college rule: equal possessions at the 25. I have always liked the college rule better even though its’ detractors say “it is not real football”: it’s more exciting and equitable. A coin-flip isn’t real football either. Don’t like starting at the 25? Start at the 40. Regardless, the current system stinks. With two gassed defenses on the field, it was little doubt that whoever won the coin toss would score a TD. Sad way to end an epic game.

LeBron James Is Dumb, A Bigot and Intellectually Dishonest

Clay Travis nails him here as “the dumbest man in sports who’s opinions have ever been taken seriously” for comparing NFL owners to slave holders. You notice that he calls them out as “old white men”, an obviously racist comment. What happens when the NFL inevitably get a black owner? What about the numerous black coaches….are they slave masters? What about the white players, are they not also “slaves”?

His statement is so patently stupid that it doesn’t really even deserve attention. Even worse, this is a guy making millions off of his shoe contract in which the shoes are LIERALLLY made by SLAVE LABOR in Asia. What a lack of self awareness. More money for LeBron, less for the poor Asians, but he “deserves” it! This guy is a despicable clown.

Fake News, NFL, Trump and Protests

It looks increasingly like the NFL and its players are losing badly while Trump and patriotic Americans are winning. Remember when the whole thing started as a protest against “racism”, police brutality and America’s entrenched “unfairness”? Well, now it’s apparently about “unity and equality”, whatever that means.

Funny, but last nights’ expression of unity (locking arms) did not go real well for the players. Leftist news media like Yahoo is desperate to make you think that “fans joined the players” by locking arms, while the WaPo said that “some” fans joined in. I have yet to see any film or picture showing fans joining in. In fact, many brought flags, shouted “USA”, put their hands on their hearts and loudly sang the anthem. It was obvious who’s side they are on, and it was not the players. In the world of leftist media, I guess “some” might equal “two”. Very fake news. Alive and well. Let us call it what it is: left-wing propaganda.

NFL, Leftism and Double Standards

Funny, a backup QB kneels and insults his country, and his teammates have to respect his decision. A lineman who did three tours of duty and is a real hero decides to break from his team and show respect to the flag and country and he has to apologize. At least his coach didn’t throw him under the bus.

Coach Tomlin: Unsure Why Villanueva Apologized, ‘Had Nothing To Apologize For’

I heard an interesting theory. The NFL is allowing this in an attempt to suck-up to the far-left and take the attention off of head trauma and domestic violence. The unintended consequence is that it is alienating its core audience. Don’t these NFL geniuses know that the left will never stop? They will make them be down with “social justice” while still working to put them out of business. The left is not your friend.
