Changes needed to NFL replays and a horrid owner in England

From where I sit it looks like there could be an asterisk next to Peyton Manning's touchdown record...


At least that's according to Wade Phillips. I have 2 thoughts on this: First, this is a great argument for the NFL to use a 'War Room' like the NHL does. Every replay review should be looked at by more than one or 2 people. The decision should be a corporate one, not just the referee. He's tired and under pressure. There needs to be a way to make certain the call is right. Every time. Second, who the hell cares? It's not like this is a one off...or that it had some sort of impact on the outcome of the game. Manning's march to the record began against Baltimore in week 1. This seems more like Phillips trying to get his name in the papers, than making a legitimate point.

There always seems to be someone complaining about the state of the ownership of their favourite team...and Cardiff City has a legitimate beef...


In Edmonton the chief complaint is Daryl Katz is too hands off and obsessed with the 1980's Oilers. Jerry Jones is the polar opposite in Dallas. At least both of them care about the team and fans. Vincent Tan is just a jerk. He's not just treating the fans like garbage, but insulting them. To change jersey colours and team name after over a century is awful. And with the team hovering around the relegation zone get ready for more angry fans. And I don't blame them.

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
