2014 NFL Season Thread


Recommended Posts

This investigation is a joke. NFL won't comment on anything, but leaks are everywhere. Enough with the inside sources that are about 50% accurate at any given time.

For an entity that preaches "integrity"...there's not much integrity in their addiction to shadow-reporting but then, when asked about repeated leaks, having "no comment".

The fact the league would rather have this cluster:censored: rather than genuine conversation about the Super Bowl is just mind-boggling.

Yeah, because people should release evidence during an investigation. Ugh. The lack of logic here is frightening.

My logic is lacking? Or the NFL's?

It's an ongoing investigation. Like any ongoing investigation, you're not going to get a full story until it's over. That's commonplace in any type of investigation.

That doesn't excuse the leakage. If the NFL was serious about this case, they'd make sure nothing gets out if that's their goal. By not addressing the leaks, they're encouraging the leak and shadow-reporting, and it's going to continue, whether the claim is true or not.

This is an investigation on deflated footballs. Official league comments should not be discouraged. This isn't your District Attorney that's investigating this. Nobody was killed. National security wasn't compromised. This shouldn't take weeks. They shouldn't have to interview 40 people before they get to the QB.

This case was decided by the court of public opinion. Any evidence released after the full investigation won't matter one bit. That's purely the fault of the NFL.

As the commissioner, and ultimate leader of the NFL, how can Roger Goodell possibly ask any team's employee for integrity when he and his staff have shown they have zero?

A mechanical-engineer-turned-comedian-turned-actor-playing-a-scientist is discussing the NFL on a news show. Our society has reached the pinnacle of absurdity. But the NFL loves it, because this story has lead the news for the last week, and will only increase the Super Bowl ratings. The only way this game could be any more perfect for the NFL is if it goes to double overtime and one of Katy Perry's boobs falls out during halftime.

We can only hope.

I think that's gotta be a 50/50 shot.

Would it have been better for the League had the Packers made it? Right now it's bad guy vs. bad buy. The too-talkative 'Hawks vs. the smug cheaters. Green Bay would have brought a national rooting interest. Only Lion/Viking/Bear fans would be cheering against the Pack.

I hadn't thought of that, but you're right. The Packers would have become Team Justice overnight to everybody but us. Plus having one of the top national followings in the game wouldn't hurt, either. If the NFL was going to "fix" the game, it would have been the NFC Championship game. But as is, the Seahawks have a historically great defense and maybe the biggest collective team personality since the 1985 Bears. The only thing keeping the Seahawks from being a constant storm is a humble, quiet QB. Replace him with even a semi-brash jackass and ESPN would never shut up about them.
