    Tonight's Final Jeopardy

    I was pulling for the champ. He had done so well the past four days, but today he fell just a bit short. Seems like 4-5 days is the limit except in rare situations.

    Holy crap! I forgot about that!

    And @SuzieQ was a stabilizing presence here, with all of her good and healthy habits and her yoga too. I miss @SuzieQ.

    I'm too old for her, but I love her too. Why hath she forsaken us?

  9. Can NFL commissioner Roger Goodell change the outcome of Saints-Rams game? by Debbie Lord, Cox Media Group National Content Desk, NCD2 hours ago The controversy over the non-call of what appeared to be an obvious penalty in the New Orleans Saints-Los Angeles Rams NFC playoff game is still being talked about, especially in social media circles with the comments often ending in, "What can we do about it now?" That’s not a question for the average fan, but it could be a question for Roger Goodell, the commissioner of the National Football League, to answer. According to the rules of the NFL, under Rule 17, Section 2, Article 1: "The Commissioner has the sole authority to investigate and take appropriate disciplinary and/or corrective measures if any club action, non-participant interference, or calamity occurs in an NFL game which the Commissioner deems so extraordinarily unfair or outside the accepted tactics encountered in professional football that such action has a major effect on the result of the game." Now, classifying the non-call against Nickell Robey-Coleman, who slammed into Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis near the Rams’ goal line, a "calamity" may just apply to the sensibilities of Saints’ fans (Robey-Coleman admitted in an interview following the game that it was pass interference), but what the rule states is that the commissioner has some extraordinary powers when it comes to NFL football games and their outcomes. To drill down a bit more, another NFL rule, Rule 17, Section 2, Article 3, that outlines a commissioner’s powers states that: "The Commissioner’s powers under this Section 2 include the imposition of monetary fines and draft-choice forfeitures, suspension of persons involved in unfair acts, and, if appropriate, the reversal of a game’s result or the rescheduling of a game, either from the beginning or from the point at which the extraordinary act occurred." Will Goodell use the rule to reverse the outcome of the game? It’s unlikely, most think, though thousands have signed a petition asking for a rematch of the game.

    Do you get sophisticated humor?

    No. That's why I hang out here.
  11. Hopefully, they will allow pass interference to be challenged and reviewed.

    I am very put off when my interviewer is British

    I really don't think that that is their responsibility.

    RG could apply for a job with the NFL

    I understand they may soon need to hire at least one additional referee.
  14. I've heard that some people thought this was real. Some prominent sports writers, even.
  15. Another reason he needs to make a formal statement, or maybe not.

    Goodell could correct the injustice if he wanted too

    Then stay out of the thread.

    We don't need that phrase. "...calamity occurs in an NFL game which the Commissioner deems so extraordinarily unfair or outside the accepted tactics encountered in professional football that such action has a major effect on the result of the game."

    One man's injustice is another man's calamity.

    If you don't like the thread, don't post in it. Easy-peasy.

    It was a calamity to Saints fans.

    I like butt naked better. It is more descriptive of the situation.

    I think he was making a joke. (He could care less...)

    I've always thought the coin toss is stupid. Why not just let the visiting team decide if they want the ball or if they want to kick. Or just kick off to the visiting team. Just like baseball. Visitors bat first.
