Clearly Belichick changes his gameplan at the last minute when facing bird teams.

I wish Rhode Island had a football team named the Providence Cthulhus, and Maine had one named the Bangor Its.

C'mon man, people have been saying the Gruden Superb Owl was fraudulent for years now. Playing with Dungy's players and the Raiders play calls gets brought up every time that game is mentioned.

As for this story. Do people really pay attention to that stuff? This is Bud Light "labels out" levels of stupid.

/yes I realize the article is satire, but I guarantee you that someone believes this as fact

Apparently, I am glad I didn't bother clicking the link. Thank you to all of those who went before me, and saved me the pain.

So you're saying this story, it's a mirage?

So the Patriots just can't stand being given *sunglasses* the bird.

Well, at least we don't have to worry about hearing about Harbowl alot this next couple of weeks. The next two weeks will be about how the Patriots are dealing with the loss and Tom Brady's off season plans.

I thought that is was because the defense just collapsed, and the offense were not really offensive. hah. one learns new things every day. a bird logo. right.

I'm pretty sure the game was fixed. Its real easy to fake a hamstring. Plus that official conveniently standing in the way of Brady's passes. After the game, when the coaches met mid field, the mikes were still open and I could hear Harbaugh thanking Belichek.

Why would he thank him unless he was thanking him for throwing the game?

Why do people use that instead of Super Bowl? Is it an attempt at being clever because the NFL is so trademark conscious about the game?

I'd wager there's a fair portion of NFL "superfans" that are so delusional that this would seem perfectly reasonable.

Thanks for the good chuckle though. I've often had a similar "this is moranic" thought every time I've seen that commercial.

Link

As always, it all comes down to money.

Advertisers pay huge amounts of money to become an official sponsor of the NFL. In doing so, they buy the right to use league logos, game footage, branding and the trademarked phrases "Super Bowl" and "Super Sunday." Companies that don't pay the premium resort to "ambush marketing" to get around this, hence generic phrases like "big game" and the use of non-NFL jerseys and game footage.

Since I'm not a company, I just do it to because I like owls. I guess I could call it the Harb Owl this year.

I'm not sure how I'm responsible for the NFLs' trademark policies.

I suppose if you are a business owner and responsible for infringement claims, you can blaze a trail for the rest of the marketing world by infringing on the NFL and telling them to go fark themselves.

As for my own personal usage of any phrases such as Super Bowl, I will continue to like Owls and shall reference it as the Harb Owl from now own so as not to offend you.

during the regular season, the Pats lost by a combined 11 points.  7 to SF, 2 to Ari, 1 point losses to Seattle and Baltimore.

The last time the Pats lost by 15 points or more was Nov 7th, 2010.  To Cleveland, wtf?
 
2013-01-22 04:14:54 PM  
I thought they lost because Bill Belichick and Tom Brady didn't put their hand over their heart during the National Anthem.

Real Patriots would put their hand over their heart.

The Patriots have not won a Super Bowl since they stopped cheating. Coincidence?

They've been to two Super Bowls since they "stopped cheating" and set a few NFL records for points and yardage by their offense.

I was simply pointing out a fact, not making excuses. What I said was 100% accurate and factual, just like what you said was.
