Some thoughts from 49ers vs. Seahawks... NFC Championship Game
Halfway through the 1st quarter:
You know what, I'm turning this game off. Football sucks. That personal foul penalty on Whittner was an absolute joke. Football with all its new "protection" rules has become a joke. Football is a violent game, we don't want to admit it, but that's why so many people like it. I hope the Niners win, but I'm not going to waste my time getting all upset over a game. Over it. Can it be baseball season already please?
A couple hours later:
So I turned the game back on in the 4th quarter (see my earlier post) to check the score just in time to see one of the Niners best players get his leg practically snapped in half, and to add insult to injury, even though he the had the ball in his hands at the end of the play, evidently none of the refs saw it, allowing everyone to pile on top of the injured player who of course couldn't hold on to the ball in such excruciating pain. The Seahawks were allowed to keep the ball. Disgusting. At this point, I once again turned the game off, and I'm glad I did.
Seeing everyone's posts about Sherman, I decided to watch his post-game "interview." That, my friends, is what the NFL has turned into today. I couldn't be more appalled at the overall product the NFL is producing these days, from the new pansy rules to the arrogant breed of players which are rapidly coming to dominate the sport. It's just not entertaining anymore. I will not be watching the Super Bowl.
Thankfully, Giants pitchers & catchers report in 26 days, and Opening Day is only 71 days away. Can't come soon enough.
