    I would think Hernandez's victims' families could sue the NFL for intentionally sitting on and stifling the release of information that could've kept these men from choosing the life that eventually caused these situations. It might be a stretch, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if the case was either settled or even made it to court.

    That's interesting. Were the Death Stick companies ever sued because they knew they were peddling poison and suppressed it?

    I guess the NFL might get out of it by claiming even though they knew they were churning out CTE gorillas there was no study linking being a CTE gorilla with going on a murder spree because Tom Brady whispered "Satan is risen, kill them all" at your locker.

    The states all sued the tobacco companies back in the 90s. As part of that lawsuit, individuals have a very difficult time filing suit against the likes of Phillip Morris now.

    Bears-Steelers game, Steelers are down 14-7 with six seconds to go in the first half trying a field goal. Kick is blocked, Chicago returns it but the returner slows up before he crosses the goal line and a Steelers player strips it at the 1 where it bounces into the endzone where another Steelers player illegally bats it out of the back of the end zone. First, it is announced as a touchback which is nullified due to there being no time on the field. Halftime.

    Then the play gets reviewed. After about five minutes, they announce that because the ball was fumbled at the 1, and the Steelers were the defensive team, the ball will be taken back to the one and the penalty applied half the distance to the half yard line. Steelers have to run 11 guys out of the locker room to get on the field. Then the Bears get a false start which takes them back and they end up kicking a field goal instead of going for six.

    17-7 at half instead of 21-7.

    The end is nigh.

    Cleveland lost, and they're still on pace for 0-16.

    There were some questionable calls in that game as well. Offensive PI on OBJ when HE was the one being held, and the interference call on John Jerry on the defensive guy getting off the field... never saw that call in my life.

    That's the main reason people are losing interest. Sterling Shepard catches a pass and takes five steps in a he endzone but then loses the ball 10 yards out of bounds but yet it's incomplete? Please.

    I still hate the "defenseless receiver" inconsistency. If the guy catches it, and gets blown up, it's OK. But if he doesn't catch it, then it's a penalty.

    Any blow up needs to be flagged. The only acceptable tackle should be in the grasp and brought to the ground (besides out of bounds and surrender).

    Agreed. Go one way or the other. Don't straddle that line. It's BS.

    Then that would be a penalty even IF the player catches the ball. I'm fine with that. It is the inconsistency that bothers me.

    Agree. It's also insidious because the kind of player who would go for the cheap hit is exactly the kind of player who sees the inconsistency and thinks he can sneak one in, and the risk may actually be even higher.

    I don't mind at all the lower tolerance for targeting, late hits, head shots, etc. But like you the inconsistency drives me batsh-t insane. #robotumps
