Please, if there where no zebras in that game it would have been saints 120 your sorry team 10, and thats because we would have spotted you 10 points.

Well sweetie, let me help you.

Direct Mattie Ryan over there, to the bench.

Look for the dejected Carolina QB with the towel on his head.

Yep, yep, there he is. He's the one sitting next to Lil' Joshie Freeman.

Now, "My name is Matthew."

"HI Matthew."

"The Saints humiliated me!"

"Welcome Matthew. They humiliated us too!"

"WELCOME!"

Congratulations!!!!!!!

You are well on your way to recovery!

Now caddieman, "Make like a Tree..........."

Just what I saw.

Other than the horse collar call, I liked the fact that the refs let them play football. There were several ticky tack calls that could have been made that wasn't which I was glad were not called.

The NFL tries to influence and dictate games....There is no proof but I'm sure it's forthcoming. It's blatantly obvious.

Here is the thing & I think skymike had said this earlier in the season.

For all the calles these guys make - they do a good job.

NOW - is there the potential for manipulation?? Yes - of course. BUT the league would have to wiegh the options of what would happen if it was found out.

Football is the most popular sport in the US. Baseball is dying, basketball (was) self imploding. So it would be stupid & short sighted!!

Think about this, and you'll work out that what you say is absolutely wrong. The refs are NOT taking instructions from the NFL on how to rig games. Here's the proof.

1. Each week, there are 112 men officiating NFL games. If the games are rigged, the NFL must find a substantial number of these - at least half - who are lying, cheating, dishonest, fraudulent, you name it, thery're lowest of the low. And when you employ them, you pay them so little that they can't afford to give up their day job.

2. Every single one of these men is so very trustworthy that the league can trust them entirely not to go to a publisher and receive $5m+ for a book entitled "How the league is rigged". Even though they have nothing to lose personally, and everything to gain.

You cannot find so many men who are lying, dishonest, fraudulent, and absolutely trustworthy. It's nonsense.

I think the league is behind the manipulation. I think they want refs manipulating games for the sake of ratings. Thats why the refs are so protected from criticism.
