I just don't understand why we need to sink to their level.. Like. I get you. Refs suck. However we shouldn't sink to other fanbases levels you know? People always told us how refs had our backs. Let's not become them!
Don't misunderstand me. I am very much of the belief that if a team finds itself in the position of allowing a call have an outsized role in determining the outcome of the game, it is very likely that they do deserve it to some degree. Had the Eagles defense also boarded the flight to Arizona, we aren't having this discussion. However, despite all that, it is an measurable fact that a controversial, perhaps even objectively poor, call was made and had the impact of determining the final result of the game.
Was the fix in? That's for everyone to decide for themselves.
Did the NFL prefer Mahomes to win? Again, we will never know for sure, and will have to make that call for ourselves.
For me, the level and sort of media coverage lavished on Mahomes bears an uncanny resemblance to the kind provided to Rodgers, and before him, Fivehead. I choose to err on the side of believing that a majority of the NFL office wanted a Mahomes win. They got it. Whatever other inferences anyone wants to draw from that...well, that's up to each person.
