The Super Bowl is the biggest betting day of the year. There are bets and odds available for just about everything, including some really ridiculous things!
Given that premise, I want to know the odds being offered for something far less ridiculous, which is the New England Patriots cheating. Seriously, they are serial cheaters. When they get caught, it’s not for an instance, but a long running scheme they had been running to the point of getting caught. They know the NFL marketing machine well that big penalties aren’t going to be handed out so that the crime is well worth the risks. No wins forfeited. No Super Bowl trips retracted. But also no big prizes if they don’t cheat either cause have they won any Super Bowls since Spy Gate?
So yes, very seriously, what’s the Vegas line for the Patriots cheating this Super Bowl XLIX???
I’d bet on more than even. Question is will the Pats get caught, not would they do it. 🙂
In North American football, the extra point is a single point short kick after a 6 point touchdown to give the full 7 point value a touchdown can give a team. The full 7 points also makes the touchdown more valuable than two field goals, at 3 points each, in not only concept but also score. Otherwise, the extra point is also a second chance to cheer loudly for the touchdown just scored if it were your team to have done so.
Once upon a time, the extra point used to require an actual effort so it was not a sure thing by any means. However, these days, it has a success rate of over 99% according to New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick. It has become too easy for the players playing to execute it that it not only becomes boring, it’s also a waste of time. Sports Illustrated’s Peter King feels the same way about it, calling it “the biggest waste of time in sports”. Nothing in sports should be that automatic, basically. What kind of competition is there if the outcome was the same more than 99% of the time?
Below is a gallery of the new Nike NFL uniforms. Have a look and take the poll to tell people if you like them. You can also comment. Tell me what you think, and I’ll tell you what I think… if you care for what I think. 🙂
This gallery is easier to view than the NFL site’s gallery because there are no frequent advertisements interrupting your viewing here, and the thumbnails are labeled and in order! Seriously, NFL.com, you can do much better than that!
Are there NFL fans on Facebook? You betcha there are!
Would those NFL fans use their team logo banner as the Timeline profile cover photos? We’ll see, I guess.
Below are over 200 NFL team logo Facebook Timeline profile cover photo graphics covering every existing team. Hope I’ve got one you like for your team! Logos are listed in alphabetical order of team city (Arizona first, Washington last). I made these from my large collection of NFL team logo wallpapers customized for varying monitor sizes.

One of the curses of the Super Bowl, it seems, is that the home team where it is held has never gotten to play in it. Any year where the host city has a decent team, though, hope always mounts. Before the 2011-2012 season, speculation this trend may change was especially strong with the Indianapolis Colts being a perennial contender. However, Fate put a quick end to that. Their magician quarterback, Peyton Manning, was sidelined for the first time in his career with a neck injury that was going to keep him out for the season, or enough of it to keep the Colts from even getting to the playoffs to have a chance to play a Super Bowl in front of their fans.
Unfortunately, Fate was in a foul mood towards Indy for some reason and did not stop there. Continue reading
