    This week's reason to hate the NFL

    This should get a few people fired up.

    Week 2 Fast Forward: Tall order for Jags
    Kevin Hench / Special to FOXSports.com
    15 September 2006

    Excerpt from article:

    This week's reason to hate the NFL
    Shaun Taylor's 15-yard personal foul penalty for a perfectly legal hit on Marcus Robinson was absurd and may have cost the Redskins the game. With the Vikes looking at a punt from deep in their own territory, they got bailed out by a call made strictly on reputation. Taylor timed the hit perfectly and delivered it with the shoulder — all legal. Had Robinson been bringing the ball down, Taylor almost certainly would have dislodged it. The fact that Robinson had already lost the ball may have made it look late, but it wasn't. Weak.

    Weak? What's weak is the guy can't even spell Taylor's name.

    What's the big deal?
    Didn't they tell you?
    Minnesota didn't win that game, Washington lost it!
    At least that's the way Fox, the NFL Network, and ESPN have been reporting it.
    Their tongue would drop out of their mouth if they mentioned the word Viking.
    That's ok with me though. It makes it sweeter when we spoil their little reach around, grab jiggly butt parties.
    What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. Its the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"

    LOL, ain't that the truth.

    So many different ways to spell Sean, I guess he didn't know which one to use.

    Taking a stab in the dark here but odds are this chump is an east coast guy.
    Not only that but could've, would've, and should've's, are stupid.
    You can also say Troy Williamson SHOULD'VE of caught that 50+ yard pass for a TD after burning the DB, which COULD'VE clinched the win for Minnesota.

    Not so fast now, there was one sports writer who I heard speak, I think on ESPN, who said.....The VIKINGS WON this game, and Skins didn't lose it.......But the Vikings took it to them in their own house
    (the skins) and beat them in almost every aspect of the game....I know not many have said this, but this one guy did....He was a black sports reporter for ESPN, just can't remember the name right now......





    And thats a weak play to hate the NFL this week, I think one of the worst called or non-called plays was the hit on Trent Green.....Nasty....

    Redskins | Taylor will not be fined for Week 1 hit
    Sat, 16 Sep 2006 09:57:12 -0700

    Ryan O'Halloran, of The Washington Times, reports Washington Redskins FS Sean Taylor will not be fined for a Week 1 hit that the officiating crew perceived to be helmet-to-helmet contact. A league spokesperson said in an e-mail: "Officials are instructed not to consider the individual players involved in a play in any way. It's irrelevant. The officials make instantaneous decisions. The action on the field happens so quickly, they don't have time to consider a player's reputation."

    I don't think it was his reputation either.
    Kornheiser is an idiot.
    That's basketball where every single call is pure judgment.
    That Taylor hit, live and first hand, did look nasty.
    Only on replay did it look good.

    Anyway, we will get screwed plenty of times this year.
    I will take the call, and every other call they want to give us.
    I don't care how we win or who says what about it.
    We had 1 more point than they when time expried and my flag flew all week.
    That is the only thing that matters.
    Bring me the prisoners; I want them alive!

    He clearly led with his helmet, you were able to see where he made contact with his head. If anyone has the the game on their PC and are willing to send it to me, or post it somewhere for download I'll find it and take a screenshot of what I saw.
