Put the game on. Its one point difference.
That was white of them.
Don’t care. NFL is dead to me.
I’m going to have a springtime NFL gear bonfire.
I was a devoted NFL fan for 47 years.
OMG Brady stripped!
A whole bunch of them looked like they would rather be getting a root canal than having to stand.
This is a very good SB one of the best

The thing that has been missing that could have mitigated some of the harsh feelings toward the league are players taking the extra step to demonstrate their patriotism. During protests like this in the past, there have always been patriotic athletes who let their thoughts be known as well as the protesters. The only one who did, apologized to his team afterward. The only takeaway is, the entire league is embarrassed be American, and hate our way of life.
A big turn around in fortune. I was just giving a big speech on how the Egales Defence failed to live up to the hype and then their one big play knocking the ball off Brady wins it for them.
