Was it a fumble? To me it clearly was... I'm not saying the Texans weren't awful in many aspects of the game, but in no way was that not a fumble. The penalty that lost the momentum of the first drive was clearly encroachment.

2. The NFL possesses an Anti-Trust Exemption to the law granted to it by President John F. Kennedy, which ultimately allows the NFL to classify itself as "entertainment" rather than sport, as well as incorporate itself as a single entity instead of the 32 separate "franchises" they would want you to believe. Contrary to the perception of the NFL being 32 separate franchises battling it out for gridiron supremacy. In a franchised environment, such as McDonalds (Business 101), each franchise is individually owned and operated and can participate in national promotions, have its own local promotions, or abstain from participating (hence the fine print in commercials saying "at participating locations".

This keeps the regionality of competition in tact without having to compete on a national level. MLB has this status, the NFL does not. Instead, since the NFL has this Anti-Trust exemption, it is able to package its teams in order to sell to national television companies, which today totals $6 Billion in revenue for the league. That is 75% of the leagues total annual revenue. In a 2004 lawsuit vs the NFL, the NFL attorney Gregg H. Levy argued that "the NFL is not a collection of 32 individual teams, but rather a single entity. And as long as the NFL teams are a unit, and they compete as a unit in the entertainment marketplace, then they should be deemed a single unit and not subject to any Anti-Trust laws."

There is only another "sports" organization that I can think of that follows this, the WWE. Levy also argued that the league markets its products and merchandise as a whole to promote the NFL as a whole. These arguments led all the way to lockout during the 2011 offseason. The league would still earn $5 Billion in revenue, even without a single game being played.

Professional sports is the only industry without ANY federal oversight. Therefore the league can do and go as they see fit, this is something the players were concerned about going into the lockout, the NFL players themselves sought help from US Congress asking for oversight of the NFL. And NFL players wanted an explanation as to why the NFL owners were granted an Anti-Trust exemption in the first place. They didn't get it.

The NFL proved in this lawsuit that they see themselves as a single unit in the "entertainment" industry and the unique league revenue sharing strategy is not common amongst professional sports leagues.

Blaming the refs remind me of WR that complain every time the ball is thrown and when they don't catch it,they want a ref to bail them out every time. Quit worrying about the refs and make plays

I wasn't out and out blaming the refs but discussing the reasons they interfered with the game.

The Texans played well enough at the begining of the season, and could have overcome help from the NFL, but not now.

This was as much BS as last year in Indy.

The NFL had two story lines in this game:

1. "Chuckstrong", enough said. The NFL wanted their touchy feely story.
2. Houston has never beat Indy in Indy. This was the story line last year and they love it for some reason.

The Texans are playing weak, but this was a disgrace, Goodell should be f'ing ashamed. One more showing like this by the NFL, and I will give up on Pro Football.

Before you blast me about the Texans should have played well enough to win period, I agree, but it should be a fair contest. Never was and if you cant admit that then you are just too angry at "insert person/coach/etc. here" to see the truth.

Gumble just went to commercial with the story line of the day, "Colts give Pagano heart warming, blah, blah, blah, they played hard for him, blah, blah, they overcame the odds, blah, blah, blah. B*ll****.

Bottom line Indy played well, made some big plays, but the momentum was stolen from the Texans.


Disgraceful for all involved.
Bolded the parts that some seem to have glossed over.

It's a common story line for the Colts vs Texans "rivalry" as far as the refs go. especially when played in Indy. Colts have been getting calls their way going back for all the years Manning played for them. On the "incomplete pass"/fumble, the refs didn't even look to see if it was a lateral/backward pass. Refs didn't make the Texans lose, but they didn't help either. Not that it matters, games over and bring on Cinci.

The Texans didn't play well enough to win, hell our O-line got manhandled by some backups inside. Schaub freaks out anytime an opposing player looks like he might get through. Foster is running on banana peels, when he is able to make it past the line of scrimmage. Throw in the defense not creating turn-overs, stupid penalties on both sides of the ball, and a lack of discipline pretty much means games will be lost.

What momentum? Texans never had momentum so they never lost it to begin with. And blaming the refs for a lost is one thing, blaming the media is low and pitiful.
