RU Ready for some Football?
I don't like to call out one of our valued commenters by name, but...
Keith, from here on out, no comments will be allowed that debase or deprecate Jamacus Russel. I can see exemptions for ridiculing those goofy earrings, but his QB skills are off limits. I have a delete button and I am not afraid to use it.
I will live but I will be grouchy for at least 24 more hours. Hey the Raiders beat us, that happens. I just asked SC if he saw the penalty at the end of the game. It gave them one or two more downs and as much as 30 seconds on the clock. Yet the illustrious TV presentation could not be bothered to run a replay. We saw the pass and the clock five times during the officials' time out, but we never saw the game-changing penalty. For all I know, #59 was busted with a smoking gun, DNA, and a solid chain of evidentiary possession. But if it were a ticky tacky call that changed the game, I'd like to have seen it.
The broadcasters. They called the game over with five minutes left and a single score separating division rivals. They were doing the playoff lineup and congratulating Coach McDaniels for his ninth win. I was wondering "any of you guys ever seen a Broncos-Raiders game?'
UPDATE Peace offering: here's an embed of Keith's clip:
I'll leave the name misspelled; Iím still pissed.
