I was making no special effort to watch the game, but there really was nothing else good to watch. I tuned in for about 5 minutes early and saw an M&Ms commercial and watched the first TD of the game. Then I turned it. After putting the kids to bed I turned it on during the final 2 minutes and saw Philly kick the final FG of the game. After that my TV blacked the ending of the game out because the show scheduled to come on at 9:15 exceeded the ratings limits allowed in my home.

Wife and I were watching movies instead on Amazon Prime. Happened upon “Taking Chance”, a true story where Kevin Bacon portrays a Marine Officer who performs escort duty for Chance Phelps, Marine KIA in Iraq. What an irony in contrast with the respect from everyone along the way vs the clowns in NFL from owners to players. Excellent movie, no political bias, and highly recommend.
I’ve heard from friends that the National Anthem ceremony was very well done. Pardon my cynicalness, but does anyone else see this as merely damage control by NFL?
The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

A friend of mine posted the coin toss online, and yes...I think it's damage control.

“Taking Chance” is an excellent movie and highly recommended.

I saw that 15 Medal of Honor recipients participated in the coin toss, including the sole living MOH recipient from WW2.

Any one of those men is worth more than the entire NFL.

Damage is done, lip service by the NFL. Let me know when the NFL stops charging the military for the honoring veterans and the country who allows them the freedom to play their games.

In fairness Houston and Dallas have won some championships and left the city intact. Some cities have real pride, others are crapholes.
Any city that riots should be banned from any play for a year and from any playoff games for a decade.

:iagree:

Philadelphia knew ahead of time the thugs would riot if they won because the greased their light polls so the clowns could not climb them. :banghead:

And why are we surprised that Philadelphia rioted?

I would be tickled pink if Trump has enough respect to not invite the whining team to the White House.

I'm not holding my breath.
God, grant me serenity to accept the things I can't change
Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.
