NFL...The Games And The Rules
Hey Vikings fans...Congratulations! You get to watch two former Vikings quarterbacks battle this wekend again...and possibly in the upcoming Super Bowl!

Brad Johnson who left Minnesota for more money will guide the Tampa Bay Buc's against Philadelphia this Sunday in the NFC championship, while NFL MVP Rich Gannon helps Oakland host Tennessee in the AFC Title game!

Both have had their problems, but both seem to be healthy now and playing pretty well behind nice teams.

I liked Oakland to win it all this year and I will stay with that pick. From the NFC I like Tampa Bay, but will pick Philidelphia to put too much pressure on Johnson and the Bucs in a defensive struggle.

Either way you "Queens" fans can enjoy watching your former heroes make the plays for someone else.

The only thing that would make this better, would be some sort of freak of nature that would force Oakland to hire Dennis "The Scarecrow" Green for the Superbowl. Denny would come in unprepared and unmotivated, except for the Super Duper Buffett, and would watch himself grow on the mega-tron while offering no coaching insite to the Raiders!

Well, the NFL officials have been in the spotlight this fall and winter and one thing instant replay has shown us, is that they still can't get it right. The controversy will continue, with league officials apoligizing for mistakes. Sometimes huge mistakes will keep the fans on the edge of their seats.

Hey, do you think it might be time for full time officials? Officials that are hired, trained, promoted (and demoted), fined and paid by the league they work for and answer to when they make mistakes.

In a multi-billion dollar business, would any other company hire part-time teachers, insurance agents, bus drivers, and pastry chefs to enforce their rules? Duh!

I can live with the human part of officiating...it's a tough job. But the leagues must have professional officials and must adjust the rules to shut the pie holes of the cry babies that have never seen a call they like.

How about big fines the first three times you shoot your mouth off?! After that..."we will see you next year!" Openings at the Golden Arches will then support you until you can grow up!

Holy Crap! If people were allowed to intimidate, yell, scream, hoot and howl where I work everytime they did their job, we would get nothing done.

You people are getting well paid, for doing a job...do it! Leave the hooting and hollering to the fans!
