Default NFL conspiracy

hey guys I was thinking about something and I think there is a conspiracy in the NFL. Has it ever occured that all the patriotic teams do good in the NFL? Take note on how the Patriots have won every super bowl while we have been at war. Take note on how they played the Eagles in this last super bowl, and the eagle just happens to be the national bird of America. How did the steelers and jets get so good?Its cus in the terrorist attacks planes crashed in both respectful cities. How did the chargers emerge all of a sudden? Because there is a large marine base there that serves the war? How are the Texans so bad? Because the country is jealous of the lower gas prices here. While you may dismiss this as silly, it does make sense.

Brady Fumble
St Louis getting screwed out of time after the final kick
The Patriots blatantly holding and tackling players in front of referes and getting no calls
This latest incident against Pittsburgh where a lose would have the Patriots nursing a losing record.



Oh yeah, something is rotten in Denmark.

I agree. The Patriots whole dynasty started the season that 9-11 took place. Kinda makes u wonder... I wouldn't be surprised to see NO win the Super Bowl this year.

How exactly did the NFL help the Patriots win the superbowl? DId they help the patriots make amazing off season aqusitions? Did they give the Patriots extra tds to compensate? No. The patriots won becuase they are a very very good team.

How exactly are the Tampa bay Bucs a "patriotic team"? They won the superbowl in 2003 and they beat the oakland raiders. How are the raiders a "patriotic team"?

How did the steelers get so good? They have ALWAYS been a defensive powerhouse. Rememebr the battles the Oilers used to have with the Steelers? The Steelers have been a defensive powerhouse for years, so the idea that they suddenly came out of nowhere is perposterous to me.

The jets are good? Are you sure about that? They are not playing all that well. Also iwhat about the Giants? Shouldnt the Giants be playing well if the plane crashed in their city. Besides last time I read, no planes crashed in East Rutherford, NJ.

San Diego played well becuase they had a last place schedule and and upped their team quite a bit. Hosuton didnt do well becuase we did not improve our team as dramatically.

Conspiracy my ***.

im not here to say it is a conspiracy just saying how it all fits togethor. I am also not saying that is the case for every team or every game. I mean they do have to make it not obvious.

they very well could have helped the patriots win, and the list in a post above shows it. Extra 52 seconds. Rams incident. Tuck Rule.

Extra 52 seconds was added when there was over 12 minutes left in the game. Rams incident?

Tuck rule is something that is now part of the game.

Maybe the Steelers would've won if they didn't sit on a timeout at the end of the game.

Yeah, I think I'll take the "silly...doesn't make sense" path.

There is no icon in existence to describe how hard I'm laughing at all of you right now (except for awtysst... EDIT: and Huge).

With the exception of this board's resident 21-year-old-who-thinks-he-knows-it-all (but most certainly shows his inexperience and lack of wisdom on a regular basis), I would have given y'all a bit more credit...

This all makes sense. With a TIME MACHINE! We knew about 9-11 years in advance, thanks to that time machine. So in alternate future we saw Belicheck as a great coach (coaching another team), Brady going undrafted (but playing well in the AFL), and the Pats in last place. So what did the NFL do? Added the 3 and TADAAA, we have the current Pats becoming succesfull post 9-11. To bad in alternate reality they lost to the Raiders (no tuck rule), lost to PIT (minus 52 sec), missed all those game winning FG's (change wind direction and speed). Good thing we have that Time machine after all, if not - this post would be pointless......

I think the Steelers, to a man, would say that this made no difference in the game whatsoever, and that they should have simply played better football. I'm pretty sure that's what they'd say. The only people who aren't freaking out over this are Patriots fans and Steelers fans.

The only thing I have to contribute to this thread is the phantom holding call on Kenny Wright against the Pats two years ago. Houston scratched and clawed to try and win that game with Ramon Walker blocking a punt and a field goal, as well as the game going to OT, only to have the refs decide it on a lame call.

The conspiracy thing is a nice little story but that's about the extent of it.
