    » Remember How I Was Surprised The NFL Let ESPN Air The Gronk Sport Science? Well, It?s Scrubbed From The Internet Now Barstool Sports: Boston

    So apparently ESPN has completely removed the Sports Science bit proving the play was catchable. I would assume the NFL asked/forced them to.

    That is just absolutely ludicrous that they are so self conscious that they cant even have video like that around. Free press and critical thinking are foundations of this country but apparently the NFL cant be part of that.

    To me this is 10 times worse than actually screwing up the call. Mistakes happen we can all learn to deal with it but for the NFL to come out and basically say that we are not allowed to question them is insane.

    Like barstool said dont let something silly like science get in the way.

    lmao-All they are doing is making the conspiracy theorists look like they have something. ESPN is completely sackless for allowing the NFL to determine what content they can or can't run.

    This is not surprising to me. There's far too much control of information. It's becoming a little bit oppressive. And not just in the United States, all around the world.

    We don't know why it is presently down, so I'll withhold judgment until the facts are in. In the meantime, people make sure you have it on your hard drives :)

    Vollmer had this to say, "Alles ist nicht Ordnung!"

    ...i'll bet the farm this will not make it on florio's website while, at the same time, the hack puts in negative light the fact that BB showed the 2009 play in the film room.

    ... i don't know why the hell i keep going to that website...:confused2::confused2:

    Is it me or is Amendola completely open in the end zone?

    He's more open than Gronk, but in the "OH CRAP" situation Brady was in, I don't think you can blame him for throwing it to the 6'6" guy instead, although he probably would have preferred to put the pass where that height would have mattered.

    The NFL is never wrong. Even when there proved wrong there not that's the problem. Just fess up and say you were wrong.

    The MFL doesn't care about real fans. They care about little boys and girls buying the jerseys and merch of their "heros".

    Funny thing is that Sporting News just hammered the NFL as well with this:

    Worst Calls in NFL History: 3 of the 5 involve the Patriots.. Can you guess which ones?

    Bad calls in the NFL - NFL - Sporting News

    Didn't the NFL force ESPN to pull the NFL based TV show Playmakers some years ago? That was a shame. I liked where that was headed.

    Yes, they did. And where that show was headed has been pretty close to the reality that's played over the last decade or so.
