DATELINE: NFL Bugs
Goodell Staff Member
The NFL has found a secret formula to make it harder for N.E. Patriots to win.
First, of course, is the tried and true method of finding the right team of referees to confound Bill Belichick by denying successful plays. Second, of course, is to force players to take extra chances to cause injury to themselves, and third, staying the course, frequently scheduled night games ought to throw off Circadian rhythms.
The NFL has now tried the “Groundhog Day” approach. You may recall Bill Murray’s movie about a man who must re-live the same day endlessly. Now the Patriots must re-live having a 14-point lead—and blowing it following a botched special team play.
The scenario presented itself once more.
When it happened again, many Patriot Faithful were ready to switch to something unpredictable on the Weather Channel, but meteorologists too were talking about no snow until February again this year. Predictable.
Let’s face it: he NFL slime-ballers, like all lice, will work better at night to hurt the Patriots.
After that, all bets are off. If you thought BoyKings and FanDoo could lose in court, you may have seen the horror story about postponing the inevitable.
However, something was completely different this time. New stars emerged, like James White making receptions where only Julian Edelman dared to go. And, Danny Amendola was back. Gronk too replayed the best TD hits.
Before you know it, the NFL too will be back in court—and the NFL remains optimistic that they can win there in a rematch. On this Sunday night, they were thwarted again.
Yet, we know that the Patriots can win despite referees, despite playing in the dark world of mystery injury, and they never rest on a Sunday.
