When every other sports team in San Diego cancelled their games this past weekend, the San Diego Chargers couldn't find it in their hearts to relocate.
This is what's wrong with sports today. It's all about the money. With the San Diego wildfires and the air quality poor, the decision was made to play the game in San Diego. The Chargers didn't want to give up that home date, and I don't blame them, but under the circumstances, the game should have been taken by the NFL to another location.
What an impressive performance again by Tom Brady in the Patriots 52-7 win over the Washington Redskins. What's wrong here? How about the Patriots up 38-0 with 9-minutes left to play and Tom Brady is still in the game and throwing another touchdown pass. Not only is Bill Belichick running the score up, but he's leaving his star quarterback in the game risking injury. What an idiot. I like Brady and the Patriots are very entertaining. But Belichick is only going to get the opposing sideline angry and defensive players are going to start taking shots at Brady. That would be a shame to see a star player go down in such a remarkable season. Brady has 30 touchdown passes through 8-games. Maybe Brett Favre was right when he predicted Brady might throw 60 this season.
How about those Rockies? Nothing wrong here, other than the fact that the team I really wanted to see do well, get thumped in four straight. Maybe next year!
Oh and finally, can somebody fill me in on the N.Y. Giants 13-10 win over the Miami Dolphins. I fell asleep during this exciting contest from Wembley Statium, the first regular season game to ever be played outside of North America.
Once again, the NFL is a bunch of money grubbing &#$*@!!. This is supposedly going to continue and teams are going to take turns heading overseas for their shot at a regular season game in England. What's wrong here. I ready last week that Bob Harlan of the Packers supported this if it was good for the NFL . Please!
That means when it's the Packers turn to lose a home game, the fans will lose out again. Don't take our great American game and turn it into a circus overseas. Go there in the preseason, that's fine. But the NFL needs to keep its regular season games in the U.S. I know there's been talk of a SuperBowl overseas. Another slap in the face to the fans and the country that made this game as big as it is. Now the league is going potentially take their biggest game elsewhere because they want to further line their already rich pockets.
How much is enough? Apparently the NFL isn't ready to answer that question anytime soon.
