    Does anyone have a problem with the NFL giving the Giants an extra home game and how that might effect the ployoffs?

    I have a BIG problem with this. They could have used almost any other NFL stadium in the league, why choose the stadium of the "road" team?

    Does it have anything to do with the fact it's in New York? Uh, yes it does.

    For a dome team like the Saints, Home field is usually a HUGE advantage.

    That's because the Eagles have no advantage at home.

    Philly had to go to a silent count out of shotgun because the Atlanta fans got so loud.

    Since your fans never cheer for anyone, I can see how you lack the perspective of real homefield advantage.

    Not being judgemental, Lions fans are just as stupid.

    Given the circumstances, I don't have a problem with it. I'd hate to complain about something like this when I think about the reason why it's happening in the first place. Seems kind of trite.
