"The Stupidest Fumble-Related Rule"


This ought to be renamed "The Stupidest Ignoring Of A Rule". Whether the rule is stupid or not is irrelevant. The fact is that it's the current rule, period. You can't just ignore the rule and then expect it to magically change for you right then and there; any more than you can make up a new rule on the spot to fit the stupid move you just made. The rule says if the QB wants to 'give himself up', he must slide. Until the rule is addressed, RG3 was the stupid one, for thinking the rule didn't apply to him. He simply should have slid. And if he calls what he did sliding, then that was the stupidest slide in the history of sport.

Why is it so hard to understand what 'acquitted' means? There was simply not enough evidence to prove that Ray Lewis killed anyone. So there is nothing for the families to forgive. Now just because you, like so many others, are so sure Lewis did kill those men, that does not constitute evidence that he did, nor do any unanswered questions regarding the matter.

The notion that he "has to forgive" because she spoke the truth makes no logical sense. Whether what she said was true or not, it was bitter and mean-spirited; that's what I believe he forgave her for, not the veracity of what she said. And if the families don't forgive him, so what? That's on them; it's not going to somehow inflict any suffering or punishment on him!

People sometimes!

Yeah, royalpines2215, you can insult the guy personally if that makes you feel superior, or whatever it is you want to feel. But the fact remains Sharpe is right. Nobody likes losing, but you have to be gracious and if nothing else, just say something like, "It was a toough loss and we wish it had gone our way." Belichick was too busy sulking, not just choosing to be silent. There's a difference.

Right, and that's the difference. Belichick is quick to talk to the network guys when the Patriots win, but when they lose, he sulks and refuses.

No, no, no, no, no. The pass was deflected off of Frenchy...or Tatum, depending on your point of view. Nantz was talking about the deflection, not the reception.

No one's forgotten "Spygate". If you think the Patriots haven't won a Super Bowl since Spygate BECAUSE of Spygate, you're either nuts or you don't understand football as much as you think you do...or both.

I can't stand the Patriots, and it's always sweet to watch them lose in embarrassing fashion, and watch the defeated looks of Brady (whom I actually admire as a QB) and Belichick.

But they are a dominant team every year, and the fact that they keep meeting their match in the playoffs has nothing to do with Spygate! That's just ludicrous. If Spygate mattered so much, they wouldn't be winning as many games as they do.

Well, there he goes. Goodbye Justin. See ya on the tabloids, or on some reality show about washed up, one-time sensations. With his behavior of late, I'll give him about a year.
