winter That's how I summarize this football season. First the Pat's are knocked out of the playoffs, then my beloved Canes have a national championship stolen from the them by a referee that was twice disciplined for bad calls this year.

Well, at least I've got the Stones. Looking forward to partying with the Stones faithful again this Sunday in Beantown, and next Saturday in New York.

T&A Well - at least now you know what it's like to be on the bad side of a bad call - last year your Pat's were handed the game against my beloved Raiders, who will turn the tables come 1/26....

winter What comes around goes around - as the Raider's got the benefit of the bad call in the 70's (76 I believe), when the refs called Sugar Bear Hamilton with roughing the passer on that whino, Ken Stabler. Raiders won the game and went on to win the Super Bowl. Somebody correct me if I am wrong as I was only 5 years old at the time.

At least the call last year was consistent with the reading of the rules. Bad rule maybe, bad call - no.

Sir Stonesalot Oh piffle.

It was a fumble. You know it, I know it. The only person on the face of the planet who didn't think it was a fumble was the Referee. He botched the call and got bailed out on a technicality.

HOWEVER!

Shitty calls are part of the game...and even instant replay can't stop all of them from happening. EVERY team has at one time or another been victim of a terminally bad call. In every sport!

My theory is that sports officials are proof that God is a woman. She devised the official as the ultimate get back on us men.

Sir Stonesalot I got news for you Pammy....when you girls get "headaches", we just go hump your best friend.

You just shoot yourselves in the "foot" with that one.

Did I just give away a "guy" secret?
