i think i've already said enough to prove my point, so i'll just repeat one line from my previous statements on the issue...

Well, that Steelers-Colts championship was pretty fucking blatant there, I mean, 2 important Steeler plays clearly out of bounds but counted in? This game is legendary in its bullshitness, and as I said people who don't even care about the Colts say this game stands out in their minds as 'you guys got robbed.' I also think it was that game that partly led to instant replay being reinstated. If there had been challenges back then NO QUESTION those calls would have been overturned. I don't claim every game my teams lose is due to bad calls, but that one was. I'm going to see if I can get somebody to make me screen caps. It was a joke.

OK, returning to this century's playoff games...last night on Sportscenter, Mark Schlereth predicted the Colts would not only win, but win big.
And when asked which marquee player would fail in the 4 playoff games, his selection was Tom Brady.
Also interesting that on Wednesday the Colts' official website was offering Colts AFC Champions T-shirts and sweatshirts (NFL.com allows you to preorder conference champ. shirts for all 8 remaining teams, but if a team loses the order is cancelled, but the Colts were the only team to put them on their team website), WEEI radio in Boston and the Boston Herald got wind of this and suddenly the shirts were removed from the site. Wonder how people in Pittsburgh feel about this also.

and what a bitch of a move by the pats to keep the tarp off the playing field all week

that said... it's their right to make such a bitch move, and i don't think the nfl should get involved, which has been rumored. if they feel they need to turn the field into a swamp to win, so be it.

I guess they think this puts the Colts at a disadvantage, but doesn't it increase the risk injury to their players as well because of the poor field conditions?

The funny thing about the whole field situation is that the picture that was in the paper (that made its way to Indy) was of a particularly soggy area of the edge of the field, nowhere near the playing surface (and rumors are the turf was doctored a bit to make it look worse), and the middle of the field is actually in pretty decent shape. Strictly mind games, like the Dec 2002 game vs Miami here when it had snowed several days earlier, and there was plenty of time to clear the field, which was done, but the shovelled snowpiles were put behind the visiting bench and along the runway to the visitors' locker room so the Fins could see some snow.
Now its currently pouring here, but the field is now covered per the NFL, even though by rule the NFL can only dictate whether or not to cover the field 24 hours before game day (which would be Saturday), but we all know Peyton is the league's glamour boy and the league wants to make sure he plays in Jacksonville on Feb 6th.

it's nice how you're comming up with excuses for the pats before the game rather than afterwords... makes it a win win situation for ya, don't it?

Actually, the NFL had nothing to do with the field getting covered now. The Pats did it on their own. An NFL official did come by to inspect it, and said it was in very good condition.

Guess the ref who called holding on Willie McGinest and wiped out Tebucky Jones's TD didn't get the memo.

J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets almost pulled off an upset!
I like the Jets, but my brother-in-law is a huge Steelers fan, so I'm glad they won for his sake.
