Who will crazy fans blame now when something goes wrong now that the real refs are back?
Did you see the sign at last night's game?

"Finally we get to yell at real refs!"

I would be royally pissed if they actually took our pensions away (I don't know that they are legally able to do that).
They are not. By definition, pensions are deferred compensation -- you've already earned the money, it just isn't being paid out to you until a later date. If your employer decided to take away or otherwise cancel your pension, you'd have grounds to sue them into the next century.
United airlines got around it with the bankruptcy.
Technically, United didn't cancel the pensions, it merely defaulted on them, which led the court to punt the responsibility to the federally operated Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation -- which, in turn, couldn't fulfill the pensions due to being overburdened and underfunded.

How about those Rams!!



They've already matched their win total from last season.

Defense looked pretty good again. Lynch is a monster but he can't do it all himself. Wilson has a ways to go.

A big Broncos win is always good. A Broncos massacre of the Raiders is amazing. The offense and defense were unstoppable today. GO BRONCOS!!

I was at a college game and yelled out "What are you, a replacement ref? Go back to the NFL!" It got a hearty laugh in my section.

I'm not sure that the Russell Wilson experiment can be called a success. Matt Flynn is waiting...

At least Wilson is better than the T-Jacker.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

I'm anxious about tonight. I want to see what the Bears are REALLY like against a semi-decent team.

Yeah, the Rams completely contained Wilson. 2 sacks, 3 INT's, no TD's. A 45.8 QB rating.

Like I said before, Lynch is a hell of a player, and the Seattle defense is definitely for real. The Rams couldn't get anything going on the ground. Bradford wasn't much better. Thank God we signed a kicker from outer space!

I wonder how long Carroll will stay with Wilson.

^I'm no lip reader, but is Ryan saying "I can't win a fucking playoff game!"?

I do dig their throwbacks though.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

While I'm no fan of Jay "dumb-face: Cutler, it is nice to see the beat down that is being applied to the Cowboys right now. 5 interceptions of Romo.

Although it does deprive us of the possibility of a Timby rant.
