    A seismic shift in opinion is needed as a whole.

    The responses to those here that refuse to allow bogus calls to go without being pointed out is incredible. That the team should have played better and it wouldn't matter. There is a modicum of truth to that. Brady could have been sharper. Seems to be a trend here and, sort of worrisome. The defense could have played better. True. But they got a stop there to force the first field goal, no? However, to say that that last call is irrelevant due to the fact that the Pats simply could have played better is extremely simple-minded.

    We have been hearing for a while now from reporters, politicians, and fans about how offensive the Redskins name is. How terrible it is. We hear about it all the time.  No one, however, is willing to discuss these types of situations. How terrible the officiating is and how it has in some instances, an extreme stench of corruption.  Maybe the folks who spend their time railing against the Redskin name should more focuses their efforts on the suspect calls in key situations by all sports referees, especially in the NFL. Maybe those who spend time ignoring the fact that those calls are very much a part of the game as Brady stinking or the D giving up yards should actually sit back and look at the facts. 

    I don't expect change to come internally, because that's never going to happen. We as a whole need to do something and what that might be is unclear. Protest, don't watch, don't go, or don't buy merchandise. Get lawyers involved. I don't know. What I do know, is that it is high time we start focusing on real isssues and not petty ones in comparison, such as the Redskins name change.

    Flame away.

    Brady had Gronk for game winning TD - and threw 4 feet over his head. Just like to Welker in the SB. Sad that many here cant admit hes on the downslide. Brady is 36 - the age Elway wanted to retire but his family made him play one more season.

    Give him some better talent and I'm sure we would see better results from him.  Look who he has to throw to.  This receiving corp wouldn't be starters on any other team.  Well maybe the Jags, maybe.

    Saying, if we had played better the call wouldn't have mattered.......

     

     

    is like saying if we were driving 10 mph under the speed limit, then the cop couldn't have given us a bogus ticket for actually driving at the speed limit.

    real issues, like what?

    [/QUOTE]

    Real issues? How about PI calls being like college rules. Not gobs of yards that can shift a game on the whim of an official.  And why teams (not just the Patriots) get hosed on head scratching calls yet others skate by. Why you changs rules to get Peyton to a Super Bowl.  Those are real issues. What collusion is going on the affect the outcomes of games.  They do whatever they want, fully well knowing no one will do anything. The more they get away with zero repercussions, the more they will do. And distract you with things like the Redskins name change.

    Patriot fans owe the refs a debt of gratitude.  Why?

    1. Patriot fans are known to be the biggest whiners in the NFL
    2. Patriot fans need someone to blame who are not Pats players/coaches when they lose
    3. If the refs decided not to enforce the rules, the game was still tied and given how dominant the Jets D had been all day forcing fumble by Brady and picking him off, the Jets would have won.   After all, the Jets had just stuffed Brady on their first OT drive.

    The refs, although just enforcing a rule have give Patriot fans a reason to whine, somone to blame and a way to take no responsibility for getting dominated 40something to 20somthing in TOP, giving up 10 plays of 20+ yards, giving up 100+ yards to some guy name Chris Ivory, giving up 100 yards to some guy name Jeremy Kerely, exposing bust Hightower's lack of speed covering some guy named Jeff Cumberland and giving up a handful of sacks of Brady including a couple of forced fumbles.

    Imagine, if the Jets had hit the kick, Pats fans would have to scrounge and scrounge for something else to whine about and somone else to blame. 

    Your Welcome.

    You are a piece of work. You probably don't know what has been going on about the NFL changing website information and murky rule descriptions. Whatever. It's a game yes. A game that people spend good money attending and even those who gamble on it.  When someone spends one cent on something that is supposed to be fair and it's not, then it's not right. Yeah, your Jets played well against a depleted Patriots defensive unit. Great. That's what they should do. But to not see things for what the are and the engineering the NFL does is a great injustice.  Just a game, if you can't get a game right and not corrupt, how are you supposed to solve "real world" issues.  Don't worth as far as rea, world issues, things are going. To change and drastically so. And soon. So possibly after that, we can get back to putting things back on the right track. 

     

    YOUR NOT welcome

    Again, you just prove my point how simpleminded you are. Don't worry. Your food stamps will be available a little while longer.
