The League’s Odd Decision – Hamlin’s Amazing Progress

I guess as of now, the NFL is gonna go ahead and cancel the Bills/Bengals game. Seems very odd that a game with so many playoff ramifications would simply be left unplayed. The easiest thing would be to give all the playoff teams a week off and create a week 19 to take care of this unfinished game. Cut out the 2 week Super Bowl break down to one and all is well.

But no, the NFL in its wisdom decided to let the game go since it didn’t ‘alter’ the playoff picture. Except that it would fuck up the seeding. KC stand to gain the most from this as they could very well be the #1 seed despite having lost to both Cincinnati and Buffalo.

Strange, that. But not our concern. Our big games to watch are of course our game vs the Cards (1:25 pm), Vikings @ Bears (10:00 am), and the NY FB Giants @ the Iggles. (1:25 pm). All these games are on Sunday.

The Minnie-soda game is early so we will know if the #2 seed is sewn up or not before our game starts. The Iggles are the late game as well, so the deal with that will be ongoing while we play.

FWIW, here are the games that matter in the AFC for the #1 seed. Chiefs @ Raiders, tomorrow at 1:00 pm. Ravens @ Bengals, Sunday 10:00 am, and Pats @ Bills, Sunday 10:00 am.

Still don’t make sense to me that they don’t make up the game, and there is talk of playing the AFCCG at a neutral site to forego any supposed favoritism to the missing outcome, but there you have it. Can’t upset the TV scheduling. Because TV is King.

On a very uplifting note, Damar Hamlin is off the ventilator and addressed his team in a Zoom meeting this morning. He still has a long way to go, but there is no permanent neurological damage. His first question was “Did we win?” The doctor replied “Yes, you won at the game of life.”

    One of my all time fave bands to see live. The early shows were wild and a bit pornographic. Heady stuff for a 14 year old kid and 7 friends that piled into mom’s 1976 Ford Granada to see them in some auditorium at Stanford. Mom went to the Stanford shopping center and went to a movie.

    We got stoned as fuck and watched naked chicks ride motorcycles across the stage, and of course, Quay Lewd.

    By Remote Control, they had cleaned up their act. A bit.

    Saew the Remote Control tour that had the Ramones open for them. It was the last weekend of Winterland, December 28th, 1978. The very famous New Year’s Eve Dead show closed it.

    To this day I don’t know what I did instead of going to that show.

      Those guys were fun. A lot of the old SF bands were either disbanding or just getting old. Things were changing.

      I saw the Tubes live at the Roxy in Hollywood. I was sitting at the front and center table, touching the stage. Some guy jumps on stage and Fee gets in a fight with him. Fee hits him in the mouth and a bunch of blood came out, landingtd right on my white T-shirt, in the middle of my chest.

      The blood was red dye and the fight was part of the show. It was a fun concert. When I was walking out, I heard a bunch of people say that they knew where I was sitting because of the red stain on my chest.

    Amazing what is out on the interwebs.


  3. unca_chuck says:

    Kinda lame if you ask me.

    The possibility of playing the AFC Championship at a neutral site and a coin flip to determine the site of a Ravens-Bengals wildcard game would take place depending on the outcome of Week 18’s games.

  4. unca_chuck says:

    Mitchell, Deebo, and Givins have all returned to practice and are good to go.

    I’d give them a few reps and wait for the playoffs.

  5. unca_chuck says:

    Aaaaaaand Kinlaw is out. As is Banks.

  6. Winder says:

    My favorite version.

  7. Winder says:

    A little different but I love this version. I guess my dads old 78’s made an impression on me.

    By not replaying the Bills/Bengals game it also fucked up my chance along with so many more to win a Fantasy Football Championship as I had Allen&Mixon only down 15 points and my opponent had no one left!
    It’s BS as greedy as the NFL is and the ramifications of Fantasy Football where even the players have stakes it came down to this!
    And yes my thoughts and prayers still go out to Damar Hamlin who is showing remarkable recovery, but the NFL screwed the pooch on this one! And they’re greed to make millions of dollars more by playing 17 games and easily causing more injuries to players is pathetic.Need to go back to a 14 game season and it would help with shit weather games in the snow being pushed back earlier to avoid a mess& traffic conditions as well..

    • Winder says:

      Join the club my friend, I have Allen, Diggs, and Cincy’s top 2 wr’s on a lot of teams. I am still gonna win some championships but not near what I thought I would.

    • willedav says:

      yeah happened to my friend who had Allen as well. Has to settle for 2nd place $$.
      Meanwhile, Bowl cut’s boys taking another one on chin. I know he’s got his deal, but there is no way in hell Raider fans in Oaktown would allow either Niners or Chiefs fans to take over Coliseum.

  9. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, they should go back to a 16 game schedule with no preseason games. They can add a couple weeks to training camp.

    But not finishing that game gives KC a huge advantage as they’ll get the top spot w/o beating either team behind them.

    FIrst song reminds me of this one.

  10. unca_chuck says:

    Although both Cincy and Buff get more than 3/4 of a game wear and tear break.

  11. willedav says:

    Pls. I’d bet Jim Bakken, still alive at age 82, the old punter place kicker for St.L Cardinals, makes more sense. Led league in FGs couple times in those days.

  12. Winder says:

    What is the weather gonna be like at gametime?

  13. unca_chuck says:

    Cloudy here. No rain. So far. No wind either.

    New thread is up.
