    Will Latest Case of Laser Pointer Usage Finally Cause NFL to Take Action?



      • There have been a few cases of a fan pointing a laser pointer at an opposing player over the past decade. It should lead the NFL to rethink stadium security policies and how those policies connect to the integrity of the game.

    Even a laser beam to the face can’t stop Tom Brady. But pointing a laser at him could lead to criminal charges and a permanent ban from an NFL stadium. It could also lead the NFL to rethink stadium security policies and how those policies connect to the integrity of the game.

    The NFL is investigating a suspicious green beam that repeatedly appeared on Brady’s uniform, helmet and skin during the AFC Championship on Sunday. As KMBC's William Joy shows through images posted on Twitter, the beam nears Brady’s face several times, including during crucial moments of the game. One such occasion arose when Kansas City Chiefs safety Daniel Sorensen intercepted a pass thrown by Brady. Imagery shared by KCTV’s David Harris also reveals that the beam reached the helmet of Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Nnadi and possibly other Chiefs and New England Patriots players who were positioned near Brady.

    Just piggy backing:

    Noticed the same site had a story about KC firing DC Sutton. Haven't noticed it being posted here yet.

    Teams losing in the AFC playoffs firing co-ordinators.

    Just maybe having a co-ordinator isn't the be all answer.

    Losing them hasn't slowed BB down.

    Some are questioning if the NFL can be believed.

    Cam Newton underwent his second throwing shoulder surgery in 2 year. In May of 2017, Newton had a repair of a partially torn rotator cuff and returned for the regular season. This last one was an arthroscopy. The team will not put out a timeline for recovery. They said that it did not require "major reconstruction." This season, it was evident that his throws for the most part had no velocity, distance or accuracy. Even if it were debridement of his rotator cuff and/or labrum, this is not a particularly good situation for the young man's future. We should know more by the beginning of the season.

    I've been able to determine that Cam Newton did not have a "simple" debridement. He underwent a 2nd rotator cuff repair for a partial tear. Not great news.

    Lions’ Trevor Bates arrested, accused of punching police officer
    Posted by Michael David Smith on January 26, 2019, 12:59 PM EST

    Lions linebacker Trevor Bates was arrested early this morning in New York City and accused of punching a police officer.

    Bates was initially arrested after a cab driver said he refused to pay his fare. At the police station, police say, he flew into a rage and punched a sergeant, according to the New York Post. The officer suffered a concussion and needed three stitches.

    “We are aware of the arrest of Trevor Bates earlier today in New York,” the Lions said in a statement. “We have not spoken to Trevor as of yet and are still in the process of gathering more information. The Detroit Lions will have no further comment at this time.”

    Police reportedly took Bates to a nearby hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.

    As I see it, with Smith having had multiple surgeries due to complications of infection, he will be extremely fortunate to ever return to football. In fact, this scenario colors his chance of return as bleak. From a photo from last week while Smith was at a Wizard's game, he is seen in an external fixation device. This tells me that his fractures are unstable........and that portions of supportive tibia and overlying soft tissues required removal due to the infection. This makes it almost a given that he will need placement of bone grafts, and soft tissue grafts and/or flaps to replace the missing supportive bone and soft tissues.

    What a bunch of pathetic crybabies. Apparently this is the first time in their franchise's 50 year history they have been screwed over by the refs. Welcome to the club. Hell, even the Patriots probably get screwed over once every 49 years. Sounds like the Saints are the luckiest franchise ever.

    Yeah, it should have called. But was that pass catchable? It looked too low and 10 feet away from the receiver. Pretend he had caught it - would have been short of a first down. The only reason the Saints "would have won the game for sure" was that a penalty would be an automatic first down and they could have run the clock down. The Saints did nothing to win the game themselves. Even then they could have stopped the Rams from driving down for the game tying field goal. Or when THEY GOT THE BALL FIRST IN OVERTIME they could have scored themselves instead of throwing an interception and letting the Rams get another field goal.

    They didn't get screwed any worse than the Chiefs. Without the totally bogus roughing the passer call, the Patriots probably don't get a TD on that drive. But just like the Saints the Chiefs had their chances to win and didn't take advantage of it (although the Chiefs did not get the ball in overtime). The difference is the Chiefs fans aren't making a court case out of it.

    The National Fixed League

    This is just another case in point although its high profile will hopefully affect change. You know somethings fishy when the 2 officials making the cal 1. lived in the LA area 2. Used to play for the Rams. The NFL was stupid for letting these guys ref that game so that the appearance impropriety could never happen. Also it should tell you something when the bookies in Vegas were giving $$$$ bet on the Saints back to people who bet on the Saints.

    I was rooting for the Rams due to them building their team thru the draft/FA and trades and I'm hoping that Cal allows Gaine to build the Texans the same way. But there's no way after the way the Saints got screwed I can root for the Rams to win the SB.

    The good thing is that with legalized betting hopefully change is forced on the NFL. It looks like the NFL went to great lengths to make LA become a successful NFL city and make sure their new high priced palace will be filled next yr. Follow the $$$$.

    If the league is fixed, the refs knew a Rams player would piledrive a Saints receiver? They knew that the Saints would let the Rams drive for a FG? They knew that Brees would throw an INT in OT? Or did they make him throw it? Or was it not actually an interception and that was just another fixed call?

    If the league is fixed then WTF with all your criticism of Kubiak and Smith over the years? Or your praise of the Patriots? If it was fixed then maybe Matt Millen was a great GM and Hue Jackson was a great coach.

    Pick a story and stick to it.

    Spilled milk and crying is common in the NFL. We do a lot of that ourselves. LOL
