Donk, Crow thread?

#10
I am searching for evidence of the Donks "home field" cheat-advantage. I found this.....

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=easterbrook/060815

How to explain Denver's January folds? One explanation might be that the depleted air at 5,208 feet is a bigger home-team advantage during the regular season, when a visitor can lose without his season ending, than during the postseason, when everyone plays on pure adrenaline. In the last three seasons, the Broncos are 21-5 at home, 13-13 on the road. Over the past decade, Denver has the best home-field record, a sterling 64-14. But if the Broncos played at sea level, they'd lose at least one more home date per year. Denver's incredible altitude-based home-field advantage might make the team overconfident. During the regular season the Broncs cruise to relatively easy home wins over opponents gasping for air, and need only a few road wins to qualify for the postseason. But when the postseason arrives, Denver is on the road or facing an extremely pumped opponent not intimidated by the altitude.
....

Broncos note No. 2: It's not that oxygen is lacking in the Denver air, it's that pressure is lacking. The oxygen ratio of air in Denver is the same as at sea level, but lower pressure means less air of all kinds. Barometric pressure at 5,208 feet is 625 millimeters per hectogram, versus 760 millimeters per hectogram at sea level. This leaves only 81 percent of the oxygen molecules per volume of air in Denver as at sea level. Athletes who train at high altitude develop more hemoglobin, which compensates for low air pressure. Young, healthy people arriving in Denver from sea level begin producing more hemoglobin in two to three days, which is why smart teams should fly in early when playing Denver.
I am searching for more sceintific info.... but this article raises some good points. First, just look at the home/away splits. Second, they make thee playoffs every year because they dominate at home with the cheating air, and then "cruise" their way to the playoffs with a .500 record away. In essense, they win 7 or 8 at home and then just have to win 2 or 3 on the road to make the playoffs. Also note the reference to the chop blocking. God damn those cheating Donks.

Oh.... here is the reference to the chop blocks....
The Broncos have a lot of strengths, none more important than their offensive line. Chop blocks aside, all Broncos offensive linemen have played their entire careers for Denver, and four of five current starters have been together five years

Oh, and the luck factor.... maybe it is just me (and my hatred for the Donks) but they seem to have more luck than any other team.... Jake fumble.... oh, out of bounds.... lame. That INT in the first half is looming huge. If the Donks win 6-3, I am gonna be pissed.

Anyone see Ray Lewis get carried for 6 yards by mini tatum bell? Heck, 90% of the posts in this thread are mine.... so no one appears to be even reading this! LOL!

6 more points was all I was asking for the crows to get. Is that too much to ask? I think so this time.

O.K. Back away slowly from teh pissy turtle. Back away without turning your back...
I will not bite. I just do not like the Donkeys. I despise them.

I apologize for my pissiness tonite. I know that there is no such word as pissiness but I hope you get what I meant.

I need a Huge cup of Hot Chocolate. That will calm my nerves and get me back to a normal mood.
