The last one, the costly one was so obvious it was scary lol.

It was intentional, he was expecting to get flagged, the ball was still several feet behind them in the air, it was not even close, plus he was not turned around looking he was facing the receiver and there was helmet to helmet as well.

He did it to stop the touchdown, as the play was right at the goal line maybe one yard back.

In a situation like that it's better to get a flag, which is only half the distance (maybe 2-3 yard penalty) rather than give up a score with only a minute-thirty to go and know you are done, so I get him doing it.

Hell he did not even try to hide what he was doing, lol.

What shocked everyone was when it was not flagged, I've never seen anything like that before.

Yeah, there was helmet to helmet too but I think that was just bang-bang playing, not intentional, still the PI call should have came lol, they were robbed.

The NFL fined the guy 26,000 dollars for the helmet to helmet hit in spite of the no-flag, it won't take the Saints loss away but I guess you could call it a moral victory lol.

On a NBA note, the Celtics have won their last five now and are just 5.5 games back.

While the silly little Cavs are still dead last at 9-41 without their King hehe...

In addition the Lakers with the Cavs King have lost their last three and are barely above 500 at 25-24 muahahahaha.

Bron has been injured for like over a month now but who cares. I hope the Lakers don't even make the playoffs.

It's Warriors Boston today at TD Garden. Let's see if we have what it takes to win the Warriors. We need Kyrie in top shape and the defense on the 3's in line


The NFL should be much harsher on the referee. This is not a simple mikstake. It's a huge mistake.
People have to be accountable for their actions.

Hope the Patriots win tonight. The greatest dynasty in sports history. I know everyone except Patriots fans want us to lose. It's only normal. No one wants to see the same guy win over and over and over.

Good luck to the Rams but I hope we ram them up real well...insert smile emoji

Go Patriots!!! Super hyped. Just hope we win!!!

You have to add another ring on Brady's hands there Top. You're not updating.

Greatest franchise in sports history...The Patriots. There's no denying. In a league built for parity what the Patriots have done is amazing, to say the least.

Haters will never admit this. It's like everybody hates the Warriors because they have the best team of all time and they always win. No one likes teams that always win, players that always win. For fans not of these teams the league or comeition starts getting boring. I understand you. But I also understand that if your team was in the position of the Patriots you'd be flying!!!!! hehee

I'm fairly certain there is no argument that can be made, no facts that can be pointed out and no picture that can be posted which will turn me into a Patriots fan or make me feel the need to acknowledge their accomplishments as anything beyond pure luck.

I could spend 10,000 words on how they have been blessed by the referees on so many occasions one can not keep accurate count (including eliminating the Saints this year who would likely have steamrolled them in the Superbowl) and so on to counter anything you might wish to bring up.

From the "Tuck Rule" when he got the one ring and screwed the Raiders, to "Deflate Gate" where Brady was suspended because of suspected cheating, but bottom line is none of that will change the fact they have the trophies.

So this argument is purely a wasted effort for either one of us to have.


Go Steelers :D

Let's move on to something we can agree on, the Celtics have stepped up their game of late and closed the gap some, moving up to 3rd in the East.
