Good thing the Niners still won so it had no effect on the outcome of the game or season. Oh, wait.

I'm fine with that, it wasn't malicious. It's also not the same thing as saying the call was wrong, as they've already pointed out was illegal by rule, but it'll be great having that misinterpreted forever.

Don't get me started on the impact of that bs call. Now the Niners need the Rams to beat Seattle to win the division. Yeah, like that's gonna happen.

Of course they didn't. Just like they didn't suspend Aldon Smith for DUI with possession of pot or for firing weapons in public. 49ers don't have to follow rules.

Smells like bias in here.

I'm guessing he's gone for the entire year next season. Might even be doing some portion of 5 years on the assault rifle beef. In the meantime, unless he's been convicted of the offenses, don't they leave themselves open to a lawsuit if they suspend him? Even if it were with pay, like they do with cops, he's still getting screwed on the incentives in his deal, so he'd have a case.

Ben Roethlisberger shakes his head sadly at your naïveté.

That was before they got pushback on the Bountygate business, though. I assume that's why they're being more cautious, rather than actually giving a damn who makes the playoffs at what seed. It might be slightly better for ratings for major market teams to get in, but the NFL's marketing slime can find a way to sell damn near anything, so it shouldn't be that much of a concern.

Classic stuff. Tell the one about time zones being set up to handicap the team you like this week again.

Shouldn't have been that close to begin with.  Sure it screwed up the NFC seeding but the niners definitely were playing like crap in that game.
 
2013-12-28 03:08:21 AM  
Screwed up the seeding like maybe a turnover being overlooked by the refs in 2 of the last 3 games? Then making up a turnover where there was none?

Yea. .. like the Cards could go into the Clink and win....

I was more entertained by the other headline on the page:

"Seattle reinstates Thurmond, waives Cox"

Hold my dick, Darren Sharper?

Funny when the replacement refs were out there people kept talking about how much better the regular refs were......

If the replacement refs were officiating that game, they would've ruled it to be a Saints TD
