It's garbage. Just absolute garbage. Guy gets exactly what he wants.

Reasonable people will differ about what constitutes political or slippery slope or any  tripwire areas our guidelines prohibit.  We've received a number of comments from folks who disagree with the point at which reports are made, or admin intervention is applied. Gentle requests and warnings have been offered, and mostly respected. Thank you.

 

But, going forward, we expect to increase our work load with the use of mod-q in cases where we believe that provocative or baiting posts have been made.  Again, reasonable people will differ.

And please be aware...the software no longer automatically alerts the Admins when a post is reported. We have to actively check for them in a separate Admin login area.. So don't think we are ignoring the reported posts.

I went by a bar a few weeks ago that advertised "No NFL Here."

A lot of bars with no NFL are missing out on a promotional opportunity. :D

MetLife stadium when the Giants are playing might borrow that sign.

Agreed.  Have there been any suspensions yet?  I'd expect them and welcome them too.
 
I started watching midway through the 3rd quarter and saw the Steelers comeback.  They're really impressive.  Antonio Brown is a terrific receiver and it's so much fun to watch Le'Veon Bell run.  He'll wait for what seems like forever for his blocks to develop and then dart through the hole for big gains.  I've seen that style of running before but it only comes around 10 or 15 years.  Other backs don't have the patience or the ability to read the defense as the play unfolds to do what Bell does.

 

Roethlisgerger is a master.  Did you have any doubt that he was going to move the team down the field for the winning field goal?  He's up there with Brady and Montana in running the hurry up offense.

 

But the league has to start suspending people for hits like we saw last night/

the players who committed the most egregious fouls on antonio brown and vontaze burfict were both suspended for a game, but it's hard to think that means much when burfict will play next week. (I know he was on the opposite side of it this time.)

I thought the steelers would definitely win at that point, I think roethlisberger is a better qb than most people give him credit for and he's definitely got better since todd hayley arrived, even if coaching roethlisberger, bell, and brown isn't that much harder than coaching warner, fitzgerald, and bolden was. still think the steelers will get blown out by the patriots twice this season.
