Consider the amount of money that changed hands last night due to the bad call by the refs. The Packers were favored by 3. A lot of people will take the home underdog playing on Monday night. The Packers had that number covered up until that last play. In the end the Packers not only failed to cover but they also lost the game.

I wonder how the bad officiating is affecting fantasy football.

$150 million per ESPN.

That's just legal betting- the total is probably much higher

just saw that Jim McMahon has early stage dementia.  Very sad.  This is why I don't let my kids play tackle football.

With the Steelers on a bye week I was really hoping for complete chaos this weekend with the replacement refs. Looks like that won't happen. Too bad.

Oh please, it could also be because Jim McMahon liked to drink, ALOT.

I really don't think the Browns are that far away from competing.

spider, your thoughts?

The Browns have a lot of young talent but the division they play in makes it really tough on them. I guess it depends on what you call competing. I don't see them making the playoffs for at least a couple of years.

The Patriots are imploding in Buffalo.

I've noticed that the Bills DB's are jumping routes. They are playing well defensively. But NE's kicker and Gronkowski/Welker have freaked NE with awful fumbles deep in their own zone. Although you have to give Byrd credit for creating those fumbles.

Linty, I can't figure out your team loyalties. You like the Indians and you seem to like the Browns so I guess you have a little Cleveland connection. But you also like the Bills in football.   :shrug:  Then you're also a Nats fan and you seem to like the A's.  :wtf:

Cleveland teams - Dad was born in Ohio.

Buffalo - First football game I ever saw was Bills vs. Giants in the SB. I liked the Bills jerseys better... so I decided they would be my favorite team. Made sense to a five year old.

Oakland - I'm not a huge fan... I like some of their players.

The Cleveland part makes sense. The Buffalo bit does not but it's your call. Hockey?

I don't really follow Hockey or NBA.

If I did... I'd root for both Washington teams as they're the closest.

Atlanta having problems with Carolina is weird.  I thought they'd demolish them.

They're looking ahead to next week's game in Washington.  :lmao:  Seriously though, Atlanta is going to demolish Washington next Sunday.

In truth, I said to my dad "no way they win this" after Buffalo went up 21-7.

Nah, he was too busy complaining about Brady losing his touch, his release slowing down, the play calling by McDaniel, how the teams were ruining a perfectly good lawn . . .
