    Gronk is held EVERY. SINGLE. PLAY.
    This.

    I cannot understand, when they are throwing PI and holding flags at the most ticky-tack contact on WRs, how the defense gets away with mugging Gronk on every single play. He never gets a call.

    ^^tbf: every TE is held when he is on the line and not split outside.

    Just a head's up for you fellow Patriots fans -the Chewy website has Patriots leashes on sale for $8.49 and the collar is only $8.99. :) There are a few other teams as well but not all of them.

    This morning on one of the local sports talk radio shows, Greg Papa, the long time play-by-play announcer for the Raiders (fired last year, but hired by the 49ers for next season) was discussing a variety of sports topics with the hosts of the morning show. He made a quick reference to the "Tuck U" game. Still irks the Raiders fans here.

    Good luck to the Saints fans trying to forget last weekend's game any time soon.

    Tom Brady project wins science fair. :D
    The science is ironclad: Tom Brady is a cheater, according to a 10-year-old’s fair-winning project.

    Ace Davis, who attends Millcreek Elementary in Lexington, Ky., wanted to do something different for his experiment.

    With the help of his mom and his sister, Davis set out to prove Brady and the New England Patriots cheated by conspiring to deflate footballs during the AFC Championship in the 2014-15 season.

    I'm sure his mother can throw just like Tom.

    Tom admitted he likes the balls to be on the underside of inflation. Peyton Manning likes them over the limit.

    When deflategate hit, in my AP Chem class I had my students run the calculations using the ideal gas law, and it proved the deflation was caused by temperature drop. That 10 year old threw footballs--are you kidding????? Surely judged by pseudo-scientists--who won last year, healing with crystals?

    My S23 made it to the finals for his science fair project proving the opposite a few years ago! :)) We did not throw footballs, we measured the inflation rate of the footballs after being in hot and cold conditions to prove the temperature can change the inflation. It was fun and for once S23 was actually interested in his project.

    I personally thought the kid was slightly cocky and using the word hate is sorta extreme for a young kid...... Way to go parents! :-S
  • sushirittosushiritto Registered User Posts: 3,170 Senior Member
    Well, if we can only find the guy they called "The Deflator," then maybe we could ask him about it. :))

    The NFL is fining the Rams player for helmet-to-helmet contact.

    That will not help Saints fans get over it. 😂

    Hall of famer Michael Irvin came up with a stat from somewhere, stating that when NFL teams win a game they probably should not have won, the next week they are 5-21. Chalked it up to some sort of guilt, "we didn't deserve that win"????? Seemed like a weird stat.

    well... here we go again...... Atlanta is expecting very cold temps and a possible wintery mix in the next few days.....

    perhaps slightly OT, but anyone watching teh ProBowl?

    Andew Luck: "88 Sluggo." (Everyone just stares at him,). Ok, you go to the corner and you go over here (as he points to the sideline for a check down).

    Reminds me of playing street ball and Club.

    Sorry- am watching Nathan Chen on the national figure skating. UNBELIEVABLY INCREDIBLE. Four quad jumps plus much more. Flawless! Is something like 70 points ahead of the second place competitor.
