    Default The Lonely NFL Thread (complete with tumbleweeds)

    I know nobody here cares about the NFL..... but just wanted to say that my Pittsburgh Steelers are in the process of beating their hated rivals the Baltimore Ravens in Baltimore with 2 minutes to go in the 4th quarter.

    Their games are always close, and it's a heated rivalry.

    So I'm happy.

    I'll be posting in here from time to time.

    Anyone's comments are always welcome.

    That was an interesting read about their rivalry when I googled it.

    My knowledge is near zero, so we use to have it on channel 4 and the refrigerator was big. Think his name was Perry?

    I was a fan of Washington Redskins for no special reason than they were the capital of USA.

    I did not enjoy watching it because I did not really understand the rules but played it a couple of times at school where they would pull a white cloth from your belt rather than smash you.

    That is the full and complete state of my knowledge.

    William 'Refrigerator' Perry....back when football was worth a damn.

    The game was built on hard hits and now that's against the rules. Shame.

    I still enjoy it. I don't think the "powers that be" will let the league sink into the abyss. Too much money involved. The NFL is big business. They'll recalibrate and come around and find an acceptable solution. Hell.... they're always tweaking.
    Sometimes too much. But the atmosphere, rivalries, crowd, electricity....... it's unbeatable.

    Great movie. Brought to the forefront a problem that exists not only with the NFL, but potentially with other sports as well. Still... the NFL continues to thrive. It's on them to continue to find ways to provide top-level entertainment without ruining the sport for the fans, while at the same time addressing the health issues. A fine line and not an easy one to tread.... but I'm sure they'll figure it out.

    Nobody EVER said concussions and/or losing consciousness was beneficial to a person's health.



    'member when the ESPN types wanted WOMEN to play football with/against the men? I 'member!

    Have to say..how bout dem Saints! 8-1 half way and Brees hitting 2nd in all time passing yards. That man is on fire and needs to be because the career window is narrowing. Towns going crazy with the P word but steady as we go!

    That's right, you're a Saints man.

    You've got every right to be excited. Right now there's a narrow ledge at the top, with the Saints, Chiefs, and Rams all jockeying for position. Was happy to see Brees reach his milestones... he's a class act as well as an ATG. Amazing he can be as successful as he is at QB with a slightly lower than optimum height at the position. Got a relative who doesn't like the Saints, but it stems from Bounty-gate back a few years ago. He's cooled off on that, but still can't stand Sean Payton. I don't mind the Saints at all, especially since they're in the same division as the Panthers and Bucs, and I'm not much into either team.

    Next Monday night the NFL planned to have their Kansas City Chiefs vs Los Angeles Rams showdown (they're both 9-1 on the season thus far) in Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. But poor field conditions forced the league to change the location to the Los Angeles Coliseum, home of the Rams. Too bad... I know Mexicans have taken a liking to American football. That's gonna be a good game, too.

    I wonder if some of the caravan members would've taken time off from their trip and try to attend the game in Mexico.

    One of the highest scoring nfl games in progress just now.... 54-51 la rams v Kansas. ... they won't make it to the highest combined score of 113 but there is only five hundred plus pint games in nfl history... not bad... I like Kansas even if the traitors play in misouri... 1.35 left Kansas have ball and three time outs

    Was wondering if anyone else was watching this game.

    Wow... a game that lived up to the hype. Like two heavyweight champions slugging it out. Instant classic, that will be talked about for a long time. Probably a Super Bowl preview, although you can't count out the Saints, Patriots, or Steelers.

    I'm glad I stayed up till the end.... it's 1 am here.

    Apparently that was a good game, and that's nice, but does anyone run the football anymore?

    No children should EVER be allowed to play football EVER!!!!


    what to believe, what to believe, what to believe?


    My issue isn't so much with girls playing football, I played on several football teams with a girl playing and that's fine, she wasn't a great or good player, but whatever, she played I didn't see her as any different as any of the other players. My issue is with ESPN and the idiot sports journalists/commentators who constantly push garbage like that Women are equal to Men in strength or that Football is inherently dangerous and will kill everyone who ever plays/has played...they are doing nothing other than pushing a narrative so THEY the reporters and journalists can be the story instead of the sport being the story or the game being the story.
