Strangely, the Head of the Faints-Lambs is well respected. The guy for the Flats-Queefs is the idiot who lost footballs among other howlers in his career. All in all, the F-Q calls evened out. I frankly think they did not call a blatant PI because they realized the guy "roughing" Brady in the previous play did not really touch him.

The F-L non-call is just plain inexplicable. People were not paying attention.

A lot of Talking Heads are mentioning how Goodell has "emergency powers" to overturn the game. Will not happen, but then I would not go to the bank on my football predictions. . . .

A question on the rules: If I make a gamble after receiving the Dipshit Bonus, and I pick incorrectly, what happens is I lose the 6 point bonus and that's all?

If you gamble, you don't get the dipshit bonus. Unless I've misunderstood. It's a choice between a guaranteed 6 or a chance for 10 or nothing.

Because shitty officiating is a new thing, especially for the Saints.

Due to contractual obligations, I must pick the Flats. I hope I'm wrong.

Note to self: Next year, pick Pats to lose in Week 2 so this doesn't happen again.

The right thing to do would be to have two Super Bowl games. One for the Patriots to beat the Rams, and another for the Patriots to beat the Saints. Win-win.

Oddly, even though a Pats win is a better outcome for me, Math says that I ought to choose the Pats to lose. Please change my pick to the Pats losing. But I will be cheering for them to win.

I did not know this:
In 1983, baseball’s American League president voided a New York Yankees win against the Kansas City Royals and ordered the game restarted from where the Royals’ George Brett had hit a go-ahead home run, but was called out because his bat had too much pine tar. The Royals won the restarted game.

I'm thinking there's a problem with standing here--MAYBE a judge would be willing to entertain a complaint from the Saints themselves, but a fan?

Funny, I was talking about that play when discussing this. Everyone remembers George Brett running out of the dugout in response to the call:



[Similar to the recall of Carlton Fisk's home run in the World Series with failure to remember they lost the subsequent Seventh Game.--Ed.]

Quiet!

but few know the call was reversed. This is a "thing" in baseball. A team can "play under protest." Still it is rare that it is successful. Here is a review of it I found from this more readable Fake Failing New York Times article.

The problem is, as far as I know, there has not been so much of a successful "we're mad!" from fans. Some I am aware of will claim they have a financial interest with regards to gambling or merchandise. All of that. It has all failed. Some have wondered that since Roger "I Have All the Power!" Goodell does have the power to reverse a game to demand a replay of part or the whole game, could someone sue him to fulfill his obligations?

Deflategate.

The Federal Appeals Court in New York basically said that whether or not Goodell fulfilled his obligations, the collective bargaining agreement gave him the power to decide what meant fulfilling his obligations. Sort of like agreeing in the fine print on a Free Though Free Speech Everything is Open Board that the Administrator has the right to ban you for whatever reason. That utterly contradicts any concept of the meaning of the "free speech" board, but you agreed to it.

[Not exactly comparable.--Ed.]

Fine. Just for "what the hell else to do" before Da Big Game let me see if an actual sports lawyer, My Man McCann, has opined on this.

He has!
As Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio noted, the Official Playing Rules of the NFL contain language that could, in theory, permit NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to reverse the outcome of a game or require that teams re-start a game from a point before an “extraordinarily unfair act” occurred.

The relevant language is found in Rule 17, which pertains to “emergencies” and “extraordinarily unfair acts.” Rule 17 refers to the commissioner possessing the “sole authority” to investigate whether a “calamity” occurs during a game and whether it is “so extraordinarily unfair or outside the accepted tactics encountered in professional football that such action has a major effect on the result of the game [and] would be inequitable to one of the participating teams.” Under the rule, the commissioner can take any necessary corrective measure, including re-starting the game from the point of the incident or from the beginning.

However, Rule 17 is worded to exclude decisions by game officials when a team complains about those decisions. The rule expresses that the commissioner “will not apply authority in cases of complaints by clubs concerning judgmental errors or routine errors of omission by game officials. Games involving such complaints will continue to stand as completed.” This language suggests that Goodell would have to decide, on his own and not at the behest of the Saints, to investigate the lack of call and determines if it counts as an “extraordinarily unfair act.”

["Snip!"--Ed.]

Yet the reality is that if Goodell—who attended the AFC Championship in Kansas City and who presumably watched the NFC Championship on TV—wished to invoke Rule 17, the time to do so would have been during the game. Once a conference championship is over, restarting or replaying it would involve a bevy of logistical hurdles.

SI
Interesting read that basically comes down as "Suck it, Saints fans! You have no case!"

Everyone is clamoring for him to get his "moment." I believe

That is one of their better in that Redskins girl found her insanity: "beautiful babies! Who love me more than the Redskins ever did!" I also love the way the Colts fan looks devastated.

The guy in the suit is the Rams fan because, well, LA.

I think, I do not know, that he will be a corporate fan who just likes to be seen and is riding the bandwagon.

Sort of like the Jags fan who had a dirty t-shirt with "Jags" crayoned on it last year.

The suit thing doesn't really connect IMO. A better joke would have been someone in full Lakers gear with a Rams item still having a price tag on it.

But what do I know, I am not a professional humorologist.

I do not know, I guess we will have to wait. They have done the "brand new fan" before. Though some of them wear stuff from decades ago. The creator, the comedian Nick "Fitzy" Stevens, responded that he has searched ebay for some of the wardrobe.
