Right on the mark. I've stopped watching plays because of all this, then, like fool I return.

This is all u need to know: about the modern NFL:

No other broadcast misses a play as consistently as Monday Night Football, continuing to prove that there is nothing in media or entertainment that cannot be ruined by more money and time.

OK I just looked at the bears game and I noticed it's still in the 1st quarter? Game started at 1130 and 45 minutes later there's just short of 2 minutes left. That is why nfl sucks. Too much about the sponsors, who think we will buy their products for being affiliated with the nfl, because they paid the nfl to rep for them.

Anyway back to getting dinner done. Happy thanksgiving everyone. Try to not kill your fams. lol

Yup, it's all about the money and advertising. Not even watching anything thus far today. I'd rather watch the rain here lolz.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too TH and to all here! Agree, don't poison your families with poorly cooked turkey or stuffing. And don't forget to check all guns at the door in case a political discussion breaks out lolz.

On top of that, the flavor of the week Country band was just standing onstage for about five minutes while they worked out “technical difficulties”. Probably had to find the right mp3 to load so they could lip-synch the song they rehearsed.

Watching football with the family. The first game had an Anthony Miller; the second game has a Shawn Lee (spelling?). A couple of my favorite San Diego Spanoses

Not sure but there seems to be a new breed of kicker in the NFL that is pretty shaky and unreliable. All throughout the ages, you could start with Stenerud all the way to Viniateri, just seemed like there were way more reliable and mentally tougher kickers until recently. Probably can be traced to egghead tweety, Mr Deer in the Headlights Nate the slit Kaeding, he ushered in the choke era of kickers.

Rigged? I doubt it. Incompetent? Yep.
Dallas game and Atlanta game. In endzone right in front of the refs...Dallas..one foot in clearly....Atlanta...ball tossed over the pylon. Both said good!......both overturned. But something is wrong. These plays were obvious, right in front of the refs.
I can only think they are conditioned to call off offensive/scoring calls. But this is downright dumb....and they worry about pass interference.....

I didn't see the Dallas game. I DID see that pylon magic trick the ref tried to play in the ATL game. Geebuz H., how much of a dunce could that ref be????? He's staring RIGHT at the player and doesn't see the ball is being thrown at the pylon clearly WAY out of his hands??????? YGBSM. Dumbass oughta be fired right there. ANYONE off the street, no matter who, could call that play correctly......streetsweeper, wall street billionaire, prostitute, homeless man, homeless dog, carpenter, pornstar, yacht captain, drug addict, ANYONE could have made that call correctly. They trying to delay the game for a replay to get more commercial time in?????? What in the world could cause him to purposely blow that call? It's ON PURPOSE. No other explanation.

And BTW the NO kick receiving onsides special team oughta be ashamed allowing Koo to kick 3 successive successful onsides kicks. Every one of those guys were staring at the ball and not being aggressive to go after it letting ATL just dive in and grab the ball. More fixed stuff? More trying to cut the point spread down? Trying to get more commercials in for the ATL timeouts? Again very weird and almost without explanation.

Those 3 onside recoveries were baffling considering the recovery rate on all onside kicks is like less than 10 percent. Clearly the saints were content to let Atl get another shot at getting back in the game.

But damn was the smoked turkey I ate delicious. Didn't even need gravy.

I didn't see this play, but your message sounds more believable than an NFL game.

I only saw the one at the end of the game, I didn’t realize there were THREE and all worked! Clearly something fishy here.

If worth it....go to 9:50 mark on of highlight video. On TV it looked maybe good....but you can see the ref looking right there.....
Probably trying to be 'definite' but it's obvious they make calls based on what they want, not what happen.

Ps earlier on that drive, Prescott was running the ball, was tackled cleanly like a runner he was, and they called unnecessary roughness. ;)

ESPN Monday Night Football has the worst both ever. Booger seems like a nice guy, but he just sucks at the commentary/play analysis. He has a pretty thick Louisiana accent at times. My wife says she can't understand what he is saying most of the time and I tell her, don't worry he isn't saying anything worth hearing.
