• Now that the Super Bowl is over, time for the important questions...

    From The NOTBCS Guy@21:1/5 to All on Wed Feb 15 08:13:20 2023
    1. Is anybody going to come close to 50 bench press reps at the combine?

    2. Who does Mia like in the A-Day game on 4/22? Milroe? Simpson? Some freshman? Sabin has never gone three in a row at Alabama without taking home the hardware - I may consider putting some money down on them next time I'm in Vegas. (Thanks to some feud between the tribes and DraftKings/BetFair/MGM, there's no legal sports betting
    in California until at least 2025.)

    Well and...
    3. What crazy new rules are the rules committee going to come up with this year?

    Blame Joe Mixon and Josh Sills. You don't fuck with the NFL and not get it in the end. #Rigged

    ugh........fingers crossed for some transfer that is better than them.

    Sabin has never gone three in a row at Alabama without taking home the hardware - I may consider putting some money down on them next time I'm in Vegas. (Thanks to some feud between the tribes and DraftKings/BetFair/MGM, there's no legal sports betting

    who cars about vegas or legal gambling? You're going to get better odds and better service at the best online books.

    I laugh at people who play -110 games(ie full retail/sticker price) in vegas when you can get better reduced juice numbers from very high volume online sportsbooks that always pay out. And it's much more convenient too. I like to say that even I lived
    full time in a hotel room at Ceasers I still wouldn't play games there.....

    the penalty in the afc title game wasn't debatable though. You really couldn't not call it in that spot. The super bowl penalty is a different matter and nobody would have even been aware of the play had they not thrown a flag(not saying they shouldn't
    have although I wouldn't have thrown it, but just an observation of how nobody would have noticed)

    Another way to look at the afc title game penalty is that Mahomes and the chiefs forced the flag by getting the bengals out of position and
    beat them to the edge. That's why that player was running full speed hoping to prevent an extra few more yards because he didn't have the angle and the outcome was kinda predictable(that he couldnt stop and there was enough contact in that spot where
    the ref really couldn't have not thrown it)

    No, but if the NFL wasn't rigged, you arrest that motherfucker off the field and you have pointed questions for him -- like "did you speak to anyone before the game to do something that stupid in that spot?

    Sports bribery (point shaving/throwing games) is Federal-illegal. The league actually rigging the game and ordering the player to take a dive and commit a stupid penalty, however, is NOT.

    No. That was an intentional hit to give the 15 to get the field goal in position for The Next Man to return to his third Bowl in five years.
