An appeal has not even been filed. This all happened after Tucker Carlson went on his Fox show and demanded this guy get a pardon. Can't step out of line from the GOP.

The no call on Mahomes grounding the ball vs the call on Burrow is what really gets me the most. The last Out of bounds hit was so close that if they are going to call it like that, then Mohomes should have been called for grounding earlier. Oh well. I predict the Eagles win it all. The late hit pe...Jump to post

MTG should ease off the Chardonnay before showing up for work functions. No one likes a loud, aggressive, obnoxious drunk.

So I’m debating a new camera but why splurge if the 17 year old camera works, right? That said, I may rent a Canon R6 to shoot video and stills to see if it’s worth the upgrade.

It's a bad look, but the charges won't be heard till after the SB has been played, and in this case the usual approach is to let the player play while the legal process runs its course.

I am wondering if the 7 SW states ought to be left to their own devices, as opposed to a federal mandate. Essentially let the existing laws and compacts fail.

True but with today's technology there is no reason the NFL can't review these iffy catches on the fly and not slow the game up. They're sort of doing that with this expedited review.

I don't understand the complaints that the referees in the 49ers/Eagles game were somehow favoring the Eagles.
