Sergeant Schultz….. Get Hogan!

Funny, I had thought it was wider than that....

Funny, it had seemed a lot wider than that….

Colonel Klink would be proud of Roger Goodell and his fascist inspired NFL.  Trey Vincent and Ted Wells…..are the perfect ferret and parrot combination in pro sports.  “Prepondering…” aside….. the NFL’s $40 million dollar man; Bad Roger is starting to look more like a cartoon figure like Porky Pig every day.  “Bumbling….stumbling….rumbling….into the End Zone”….says Chris Berman…and of the greater and greater disbelief in his decision making.  Maybe Roger isn’t even calling the shots here.  Maybe some secret powers behind the scenes are making these ridiculous decisions and expecting “Roger Baby”….to go out and sell it to the hungry public.

So let’s start out with “THE CRIME of the Century”.  OK, maybe we should call it what it is:  “Rule Breaking!”  OK, how bad is this Rule Breaking and how much could it affect “the integrity of the game”?  How about steroids?  How about targeted hitting on opposing players to seriously injure them and take them out for the season or end their careers?  How about personal bad conduct – like killing your best friend or another illegal drug dealer?  How about beating up your wife or girlfriend in public?  How about robbing and beating someone until near death?  How about raping and hospitalizing someone you just met?  How about drugging someone, raping them and doing it over and over again?  Do any of these things affect the “intergrity of the game”?  How about asking college students with bad records and moral charges into the the NFL?

What about cheating on every play and paying off the officials to look the other way or not look at all?  How about letting organized crime fix the over and unders for every game?  Oh well, the list will start to get pretty long before you get to “under inflate your Wilson NFL Game ball by 1 PSI or 2.  Especially, when the temperature fluxuates from a high of 120F degrees on the field to under 30 below.  13 PSI is the so-called recommended pressure.  What happens when it is “deflated to 11 PSI”?  The ball gets easier to squeeze!  Have most NFL Players squeezed a football at 13 PSI and 11 PSI?  Mainly, running backs, receivers and quarterbacks.  What about gloves?  Are those within the rules?  Why do some Quarterbacks like Peyton Manning wear gloves during the winter?  Why do some receivers wear gloves all the time and why do most running backs not use gloves?  This is called “Preference”.  Does the NFL have a “Glove Rule”?  They used to not have a “Stickum Rule” until the Oakland Raiders put stickum all over their uniforms…and if the ball hit them….it would stick by itself.

One thing is certain – the Seattle Seahawks probably should have won this year’s Super Bowl.  They didn’t, because of one errant pass in the last seconds of the game.  “Was the integrity of the game put in doubt?”  Probably not.  Should Russell Wilson be fired for throwing that pass?  Should Pete Carroll by given 100 lashes and the Seattle Owner fined $1 Million dollars?  This whole “Deflategate” nonsense is just that.  We could name 50 NFL quarterbacks and probably more wide receivers and running backs that would prefer a softer football and have made the same adjustments throughout the history of the NFL.  In the days of Sammy Baugh, “Slingin Sammy” had to throw the ball with his forefinger on the point of the ball, because the diameter of the ball was two inches bigger around than the ball is today.  Bart Starr, Johnny Unitas, Joe Montana, Joe Namath, Pat Haden and others “deflated” and that is just for starters.  It is quite interesting to see the list of bad quarterbacks that never won anything that are busy climbing on Brady and the Patriots.  No need to name names….you know who they are!  “Integrity of the game!…indeed.”

Brady and the Patriots will appeal the ruling of the NFL and their bogus discovery process!  The worst part of all of it is that the two ball guys have lost their jobs “until the NFL decides differently”.  Ridiculous and awful.  Brady should lose no games or pay.  Kraft and the Patriots should be fined $100,000 and the Indianapolis Colts should be fined $100,000 for turning the Patriots in.  Obvisously, this so-called “Sting Operation” was set in advance and turncoats like the Colts – are not only crybabies but part of the paid off process.

For those picky folks who feel that “Brady and the Pats are cheaters!”, the corrective action is to take away the authorized pressure of every football in every league game from the individual teams and make the the NFL provide – One GAMEBALL Ref and one GAMEBALL Assistant to check the air pressure of each ball in all four quarters of play.  Hey, no need to leave “the integrity of the game” in the hands of two ball boys making $35K a year….eh?  Let’s pay these NFL GAMEBALL Refs and Assistants each $125,000 a year.  No need to be cheap when it comes to the NFL maintaining “the intergrity of the game”.

“Sergeant Schultz……get Hogan!”
