Dark clouds over Indy
First of all, my apologies for posting another "Indy Star obsessed" thread, but this one is pretty funny. I believe this guy is for real.
The NFL of course needs the cheaters to win, because they are in bed with Kraft and their unbeaten season is driving their ratings and revenues up.
So while everyone is anticipating Green Bay to make it to the SB to play NE, and salivating over that Favre vs. Brady matchup, the truth is...
the NFL has already pre-determined that the Giants will win Sunday for the same reason they had the Colts lose to SD last weekend:
They can't deal with a possible "good guys vs. cheaters" matchup. Too much bad PR for the league to have the whole cheating thing brought up like crazy and everyone cheering for the good guys to win when the NFL clearly wants the cheats to get away with it. That's why the Colts aren't playing them this weekend, either.
So no, there won't be any Favre and the white-hat guys fighting for the forces of good to rid the world of Belicheat and his trolls. The NFL could never allow that. They'd much rather have a big-city NY team playing NE in a rematch of their season-finale. This way the whole hype to the SB can be reliving that close game, how valiant the Giants are, how great it was both teams played their hearts out even though they had nothing to play for, and of course all of the NE record-setting plays/stats will be brought up over and over.
And you'd have the NY team vs. the undefeated team, with the cheating incident really only in the background.
This is what the NFL wants people. If this happens, don't be surprised!
