Intentional Grounding...


Is there anything more to say that hasn't already been said about the incompetence of the replacement refs? OR how about the blatant arrogance the "Goodell Castro" and the NFL have employed by refusing to even acknowledge that there's a real problem? No? Well, OK then. Makes my job this week rather simple. And as a man of my word, this will be the last time, barring a settlement, that you will hear me talk about the replacement refs and the reasons why they've been forced into action. Why? Because I don't feed negative hype machines. At least I don't go out of my way to feed negative hype machines. The NFL wants to piss on our heads and tell us it's raining? Fine. It's raining. I mean, what else can you say? Everyone knows that their refusal to pay the "real refs" is the reason why this inferior product is being put on the field. But if they want to treat us like idiots, fine. I for one, will act like one. And in acting like one, I will refuse to acknowledge that there is any sort of problem from this point forward. What? It sure looked like Golden Tate caught that ball to me...


I know, my indifference makes it sound like I've given up. But I haven't. I just know that my talking about the problem can only help feed the negative hype that the NFL seems more than happy to have created. So I just won't do it. Eventually, such indifference will cause me to stop respecting and watching the league all together, like I did with the NHL. But for now, it's just a strike against a league that may be showing us all that's it's risen to high too fast, and isn't fully prepared to deal with the pressures and responsibilities that come with being the most important sport in the country...

I will continue to pick games, though. Although after last week, I'm not sure you going to want to hear me talking about any of that, either. Even if I was able to bail myself out on Monday Night. Yeah, did you hear? Golden Tate made an amazing game winning catch in the end zone...

NFL Picks
Last Week: 9-9-0

Overall: 29-23-2 (.556)

Twitter Picks: 6-1-0

NCAA Picks
Last Week: 7-4-0

Overall: 18-15-0 (.545)


For more picks, check back on Friday. And for the Thursday night game, be sure to check Twitter. If you're still not on Twitter, not only are you missing my picks, but you're missing probably the funniest moments from the replacement ref fiasco. And even though I've said it many times before, it's worth saying again. At this point, if you're a real sports fan and you're not on Twitter, then the first half of that sentence probably isn't actually true...

Get your tweet on, friends. And I'll catch you Friday...
