IS THIS GARBAGE FOR REAL??
"Why do I feel Like a Mushroom... Being Fed BS and Kept in the DARK??"
Ralph F. Mariano, Editor - STReport Magazine
As the game between the Jags and the Browns unfolded, the rivalry was not the most important factor in this JAGS v BROWNS game. ...The facts are; this game decided whether the Browns had playoff chances or not.
So, for the Browns Fans... this was a very critical game. Much the same as the game would be for the Jaguars Fans here in Jacksonville. If The Jaguars were on the brink of the Play-offs, teetering on the outcome of a game.
What do we SEE.....??? at the end of the last play, where the double SPIKING of the football by the Browns QB is an obvious FLAG,,, the Refs throw flags...... But Lo and Behold, it's NOT for the double spiking... its because of the previous play being challenged by the officials in the skybox!! But wait a minute folks.... the ball was already SNAPPED!!
By the double spiking of the ball by the Browns QB (A play) the previous play was now in the books!. By NFL Rules that means the previous play is now history and the game proceeds.. (At least that's the way the Officials ruled their BUM CALLS on the JAGS all season long.) So you think so Eh? Bunky??
Now comes the rub!
There is NO right to Challenge the previous play after the snap, not by anyone! Not the coaches or the NFL officials. But the Officials did it anyway.
The On Field Officials had it announced ..the "Buzzer" sounded late for them thus, the inadvertent play and late call for review. OK.... so they claimed it was an "equipment malfunction" according to the CBS Announcers at the game. Now my dear readers read the diatribe (Bovine Fertilizer) foisted upon us by the NFL SPIN Doctors! (they should be ashamed of themselves!) - -
Tagliabue Where ARE you? - - Are you in this Time Zone? - - What ZONE are you in? ..Besides the NFL Profit Zone?
(Calling the Players back on the field 25 minutes later... Topped Off the fiasco. Who really runs the NFL?? The Three Stooges?)
Tell it like it is... we all saw, on the tube.... how the Officials screwed up ROYALLY!
Now the (FIX) "Cover-up" (Read Below) is in... Truth is.. Say it Sam... if this occurred in Jacksonville, Would you be the same aloof pansy you are seemingly trying to be now?
Stop Blaming the Browns Fans... They are Just as Sick and Tired of The Lousy NFL Officials as WE are!!! [TRUTH]
The FANS weren't outta line, they were PUSHED OVER the line ...The horrid NFL Officiating WAS totally outta line and has been for years!!
It needs to be Corrected!
If it was up to me, I'd DUMP Rookie Referee Terry McAulay right now for perpetrating a Fraud on the Players and Fans! Incompetent Goof!
It wasn't the first BAD CALL in this particular game... (forget all the previous Games!) but he (McAulay) is NOT ALONE... This Season, like previous season's Officiating has been ATROCIOUS!! Instant Replay included!
(As stated in Computers.... "Garbage In... Garbage OUT!")
CLEVELAND (Dec. 16, 2001) -- The following is the post-game pool report
following the Jacksonville Jaguars' 15-10 win over the Cleveland Browns at
Cleveland Browns Stadium. The interview, conducted by pool reporter Tony
Grossi of The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer, was with referee Terry McAulay and
NFL Supervisor Dick McKenzie in regards to the events of the game's final
(Pure doublespeak to cover up a royal screw up)

Despite the awful display of the Browns Fans, the true
focus of NFL Football Fans should be on the obvious Lack of Professional Field
Officials provided by the NFL. Repeatedly, this season, the games have been
plagued with BAD CALLS.. despite instant replay. The NFL should have full time,
well trained officials on the field much as Major League Baseball has with
Umpires. Don't you agree??
Sam, Don't put the fans up for execution... the Officials ignited an already short fuse... How many BAD CALLS have YOU seen this season? 'Nuff Said!
Not a word mentioned about the question... but then this was expected since the question puts the NFL squarely in the hot seat. Where they belong! Sam would NEVER do that. Nor, would his wimp management allow it. Yup, that's sayin' it like it is folks.....
Sam, what do you think? To the fans... What do you think? Send email... I promise you ..there will be a full follow-up. Its time somebody jumped in the NFL's lackadaisical face. We NEED REAL, FULL TIME - WELL TRAINED OFFICIALS ON THE FIELD -- NOT PART-TIME HOBBYISTS!
