    Apparently there were allegations that the temperature was raised in the RCA Dome last year for the AFCCG. I admit, I didn't even know that story - maybe because the Patriots never complain about such things. If the Pats ever did such a thing here (if such a thing was even possible) you would have Bill Polian whining incessantly and nonstop to every media outlet on the planet. Instead what do we get from NE..? Something you will never hear from any Colts player or executive:

    "I don't know," Colvin said. "I know back at Purdue, when you went to Iowa, they had the pink [visitors] locker room. But again, I think all that boils down to execution. Regardless of if your locker room is pink or blue, regardless of if the temperature is below zero or 110, you have to go out and perform. It's your job as a professional to go out and do that."

    I don't put much into it. It's not like it was warmer than playing in Miami.

    A few weeks after that game I and a few people at work came down with the flu. It put one guy in the hospital, i couldn't sleep for about 48 hours due to the coughing and alternating between chills so bad my whole body would shake violently,an spiking fevers from trying to warm up from the chills. If theses guys had the same thing (i asked at the drug store and i was told it was pretty common) I can't even imagine what it would have been like to try to play. I'd say almost impossible I haven't been that sick in MAYBE 20 years.

    The idea being that players hit by the flu recently might be more liable to breakdown from the extra heat, thus Plian allegedly raised the temperature to this affect.

    *shrug*, how is this any worse than Belichick having the grass be grown out when the Colts were coming to town to slow them down? Stuff like this is part of why HFA is important.

    In December 1999, I caught the flu from my 9-month-old daughter, and then proceded to give it to my wife - just before we flew from Galveston TX to Boston for Christmas vacation. My wife felt lousy the whole time there. For those 2/3 days that I had it, I was useless. At its peak, I had to ask our landlady upstairs to watch the baby for a few hours. Can you imagine trying to play an AFCC game under those conditions? I realize that NFL players are in infinitely better shape than I am, but it seems to me that a flu bug would cause almost as much misery to them as it did to me.

    There is no doubt in my mind that naPolian knew of the Pats' plight and purposely increased the heat/humidity in the dome. Yet nobody from the drive-by media has mentioned this, or any other of naPolian's disgraceful episodes; or of the 180-degree difference between the Krafts and the traitorous, treacherous Irsays.
