Didn't you admit you don't really watch football anymore? The game has changed a lot the last couple years. These flags are super standard now.

Whether I agree with it or not, when I saw the play I immediately thought "flag", per their rules.

I am talking about the defenseless receiver flag over the middle. If we're talking about something else then I'm mistaken.

Never understand your hate or anyone's for Whitner. He's been fined a total of $0, and has been in the league since 2006 (he was fined this year, but won his appeal). He's not a thug. Go after Dashon Goldson if you want the last 49ers safety to be fined.

If anything Whitner should be praised and be given the benefit of the doubt. Hopefully it leads to reviewable penalities; it's awesome watching a big, legal hit.

Re: Was the 2014 NFC Championship game rigged?

The people who look at this video and sit there unmoved and dumbfounded because they are unable to grasp the implications and the truth about all this are the ones who likely have gleaming white teeth and are a blatant sheep.

Its clear as day people. The NFL had its reasons for wanting Seattle to win this game. If you are unable to see that, you are naive and dont understand that the world is all about money.

I don't hate Whitner. I was mocking Tyler. He suggested they only threw the flag because it was Whitner. I think that's a load of crap because that play gets flagged like 90% of the time.

The struggling National Football League saw one way out of its financial difficulties: the storied Seattle franchise must make the Super Bowl at all costs

Isn't it a penalty if you lunge your body into the receiver, regardless of helmet to helmet?

Yep.

Quote:
(j) if a player illegally launches into a defenseless opponent. It is an illegal launch if a player (1) leaves both feet prior to contact to spring forward and upward into his opponent, and (2) uses any part of his helmet (including the top/crown and forehead/”hairline” parts) to initiate forcible contact against any part of his opponent’s body.

Re: Was the 2014 NFC Championship game rigged?

People are not necessarily correct when they assume that the whole point of rigging was Seattle getting to the Super Bowl.

Maybe there was some financial gain somehow, such as gambling.

Re: Was the 2014 NFC Championship game rigged?

SANTA CLARA - Area fan of NFL team in major media market with 5 championship trophies -- roughly 4 times more trophies than would have been won by random chance alone -- becomes convinced that the NFL is rigged after failing to win an opportunity to play for 6th championship trophy. Area fan remains committed fan of his NFL team, will continue to cheer despite obviously rigged games.

Sure, niner fans seem spoiled by complaining. At the same time, the reason we have 5 titles (objectively should be 7) is due to ****ting greatness and pissing excellence, pretty much throughout the history of the organization. That's not a reason to penalize the best team in football the last 3 years.

Did the nfl literally rig the game? No.

Was the reffing so incompetent that it was the sole determinant of the hawks/ravens being falsely honored and crowned? Absolutely.

The 49ers earned a championship each of the last two seasons, but the refs gave it to inferior, PED ridden teams/organizations.

LEAGUE OF PARODY!

No big deal though, we'll be best team in football again next year. The only team that can beat us In the playoffs are the zebras.
