[QUOTE]In Response to Re: At least PATS FANS admit it.... : I got one for ya. John Harbaugh threw a challenge flag, questioned the call and then picked it up saying he did not want to challenge. He did not lose a timeout or get a penalty (if that would have been appropriate). What I do understand is that when a team wins and gets a beneficial or questionable call, the media will eat up that controversy like a Tiger Woods Mistress.
On the other hand, when a team loses and gets a beneficial or questionable call, the media doesn't care. To them such a thing doesn't matter. Its not news because they cannot make a controversial statement with it. Its like the media coverage given to a second stringer suspended for using peds. It's not even mentioned because the player does not matter.

I'm surprised too dogg
, News outlets like NFL.com and ESPN wouldn't have ANYthing
to lose whatsoever in terms of revenue IF The very nature of the rules and regulations were even potentially
compromised in the NFL from one of the highest echelon of The Leagues governing bodies... AS for Local, more team-oriented news outlets, I know the reporters in Boston are far too busy composing drivel about their own
team's shortcomings, and I know that your
local papers and web-sites, like The Indy star are far too busy themselves writing more objective and fact-driven pieces like "101 Reasons to Hate The Patriots
" And stories on Bill Belichick nearly Killing a poor (possibly destitute, blind and handicapped) cameraman by "barreling him over" after the Colts/Pats game...so Everyone's all booked solid.
As for this previous post off of mine, I got through the first sentence of your response, "If there were ever someone on a committee like that seemingly doing such things for the benefit of his team while making sure that said laws of average were not considered or reviewed when, for example, his team shows up at the bottom of the league rankings in penalties year in and year out, I would bet that his team had more superbowl victories during his tenure
," ...and then I subsequently gave up on the rest of your post; Realizing that at least it wasn't a rhetorical change-of-subject like some poster's offer, like "What about the tuck-rule
" and "ALL Pat's Fans whine
," YET Your Response was still fictional contingency...The "Oh yea, IF THAT did
happen than THIS would surely
be the outcome," of very specious reasoning.
