Yeah, I’m also kind of sick of the NFL officials getting all up about “poor sportsmanship” and “taunting”. It’s just stupid. But, the game did make me happy, for a couple of reasons.
- Peyton Manning got his Superbowl win.
- In the 4th quarter, the Panthers runner made a lateral pass while running, and that’s the stuff that the sport is missing nowadays that it used to have in abundance. Taking chances. Changing plays on the fly to make things work. Actually playing well. That’s why I don’t like watching football now, none of the players do anything special, except for a few big players like Cam Newton on the Panthers for instance.
Number 1 is the reason I wanted to see the game and that call was stupid, but I didn’t feel up to listening to my dad go on about it for the rest of the game, he was in fact still yelling about it when he went to bed after his team had won, it seems to me that after your team completely trounces the other team you can stop going on about a bad call against them.
That play sounds amazing and I agree, if there were more plays like that in the NFL I would watch more games and wouldn’t care what my dad was ranting about.
