NFL Re-Writing History?

    So flipping through this evening, I put on NFL Network because they advertise the tuck rule game being played, between Oakland and New England. As luck would have it I turned it on just as New England was getting the ball back down by 3, to start their eventual game tying drive. And sure enough the game ended with a Vinateiri FG in overtime.

    But in between all that I seemed to remember something significant happening, outside of two field goals. Something sort of controversial. A dispute about a sack, or maybe a fumble, or something like that. Thankfully the NFL saw fit to erase any such memory, evidence, or even comment about any of that. History will show it ended up being just some sort of typical comeback at the end.

    Is there still a Raider Nation to care about storming the NFL Network offices?

    With history like this, the Cleveland Browns could have won three Super Bowls!

    (ducking ...)

    Kinda like how you never see Franco Harris actually catch the ball in the Immaculate Reception game. The fact the ball actually hit the ground probably doesn't have anything to do with that though...

    Oz, outofplace and 93Devil have no idea why they just started punching the nearest wall.
  6. Headbutt, did you catch the NFL Network's Top Ten Bad Weather Games of all Time? The Pats-Raiders Game was No.2 and the tuck rule controversy was prominent. (Incidentally, Fog Bowl was No. 3 and the Ice Bowl was No. 1).

    I'm surprised they didn't show at least a bit of the clusterfuck on the field.

    In a bar, out of town the other night...
    A man rose from his bar stool, and euphemistically speaking as he headed to the men's room, said:

    "Hold on you guys.
    I have to go take the Browns to the Super Bowl."

    I had a chuckle or two.

    Using the length of an NFL football, Franco's height and Euclidean geometry, scientists have proven the ball never hit the ground.

    Wow. That is the most worthless use of science I've ever seen.

    Congrats. Let Google cycle a day or two and you are the proud papa of a Google whack.

    To clarify, "worthless use of science" (typed in quotes) has never popped up before in a Google search. You are a true groundbreaker.
