On a side note, everywhere I have been since Sunday, people believe the NFL fixed our game so Dallas would win.

The WWE has more credibility than the NFL right now.

Not sure if this was brought up in the game day thread but the NFL is apologizing too little too late again about one of the blatantly missed holds that wasn't called:

Straight from the NFL Rule Book:
PENALTIES FOR UNFAIR ACTS
Article 3 The Commissioner’s powers under this Section 2 include the imposition of monetary fines and draft-choice forfeitures, suspension of persons involved in unfair acts, and, if appropriate, the reversal of a game’s result or the rescheduling of a game, either from the beginning or from the point at which the extraordinary act occurred. In the event of rescheduling a game, the Commissioner will be guided by the procedures specified in Rule 17, Section 1, Articles 5 through 11, above. In all cases, the Commissioner will conduct a full investigation, including the opportunity for hearings, use of game videotape, and any other procedure he
deems appropriate.

aint gonna happen. we all need to accept the fact that while we DID get hosed, we also didnt play well enough to win. Dallas also got hosed, cuz in everyones mind (except Dallas's) this win has a giant "*" next to it. NO ONE outside of Texas is giving them credit for the win. this whole situation is a lose/lose. If you watch the comments on NFL.com amongst other sites, even Christie is getting a lil "hate by affiliation".

The NFL has a crap ton of egg on its face from this game, and Im betting the Lions get a new rule named after them in the offseason. (AGAIN!)

Don't need a new rule. It is as simple as them being able to Review Penalties. Hopefully the competition committee finally makes it possible. Then in questionable situations the ref can confidently throw the flag, knowing that if its questionable it will be reviewed and possibly overturned.

Bill Belicheck is gaining votes for his wish to be able to challenge everything. Each HC would have 3 Challenges available each game that they can challenge anything that happens on field.

That makes sense. Rather then automatically adding a bunch of review time to every game, just give coaches the ability to cause reviews of egregious errors.
