[QUOTE]But yesterday you said they did discuss the spot of the ball. Interesting how you are slowly rolling down the slope to the truth. AND I ADMITTED MY MISTAKE IMMEDIATELY, DIDN'T I? NICE ATTEMPT TO DISTRACT. [/QUOTE]
I obviously never saw that. And if you did withdraw your statement, it certainly was not immediate. There were at least three posts in a row where you stated the refs conferred. You even told me they did after I corrected you. I never saw any retraction.
[QUOTE]Once again, soft language. The call was "understandable"? means you can rationalize that the call was made correctly means you know it was wrong. HUH?? NOT REAL SURE WHAT YOU ARE SAYING HERE, BUT YOU ARE TAKING LIBERTIES WITH DEDUCTIVE REASONING THAT WOULDN'T HOLD UP IN KINDERGARTEN. SHAME ON YOU DEBATOR. [/QUOTE]
They are your words. You wrote them. But you aren't definitive in your statement? Why? It is how you are putting down your thoughts that give you away. That you can "understand" how they made the spot means you can "understand" that another spot could have and should have been made. People use this type of language when they are trying to convince themselves of something.
[QUOTE]Good job. Wrong again. They didn't make every opportunity. It is fair to say that this is the truth about any t team in most games. They made the one they needed to when it counted. THEY MAY HAVE MADE THE PLAYS THEY NEEDED TO MAKE BUT THEY DID NOT MAKE ENOUGH OF THEM TO WIN THE GAME. I HAVE THE SCORE TO PROVE IT. WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO ATTACH A LINK TO THE SCORE? [/QUOTE]
Again, wrong on your part. That play puts them at the 2 minute warning with 4 downs and only one Colt timeout. That means they could have taken a knee. The best part about this is that you finally admit they make that play.
[QUOTE]They were robbed. OPINION, AND BAD OPINION, IN MY OPINION. [/QUOTE]
Of course you disagree with that. But you know it is the truth.
[QUOTE]Pretend all you want on the outside. I know that you know the Colts were given a gift by the refs. THERE YOU GO MAKING ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT ME FOR WHICH YOU HAVE NO BASIS. ROOT, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO DO BETTER THAN THAT. Posted by underdoggg[/QUOTE]
Throughout this entire thread and in every other post that I have read, you have never once, not once stated definitively that the spot was correct. You have stated things in very ambiguous, soft language - "I can understand how the call was made." etc...
As I said earlier, you are just flailing around trying to come up with anything to avoid having to acknowledge it outright. But, you finally do above. Great day.
It is not an assumption. You know the spot was bogus. You even implicitly write it above that the Pats made the play.
