    as an aside....I've heard your point before but IMO a 500K or 1M bribe will cross the mind of a dishonest person earning 30K or 500K. No one is suggesting these guys take a pay cut. I imagine they are all working millionaires anyway.
    I disagree. It's a lot less likely if it jeopardizes his ability to make another 500k the next year, and the year after that, etc and have a nice pension when he retired.

    He has a lot more to lose in the long run, than in the short run in that situation. It's also a lot less likely, that his co-workers will not have any part of it and will monitor each other, whereas right now, I wouldn't be surprised if entire teams are in it and split a huge pot. They have all the incentive in the world to take it, and little not too. They have no guarantee of a job long term, and for some it's their one big chance to strike big and probably set up their wives, children, mothers, sick kids, etc....for life.

I gave you an excerpt from an NFL rule book of the exact same scenario. As stated many times before that you are the one insinuating who comes down first matters. It doesn't. In this rule or any other. Take your medicine dude.

    Sucky rule, correctly called.

    I'm sure you were EQUALLY up in arms when the same call went the Jets' way vs. the Pats earlier the same season.

    There is nothing wrong with the Tuck Rule. The problem in that situation is that the refs made the incorrect call under the rule.

    Brady had both hands on the ball when he was hit by Woodson and, thus, under the rule, he was not in the act of throwing. But that doesn't matter now anyway.

    You would think that ANY owner with half a brain would see how the replacements were killing the game. Of course, Woody wanted to dig in, even after the Monday night debacle, according to this report.


    After Monday night’s Seahawks-Packers game, the last play of which a surprising number of people (of course, “one” would be a surprising number of people) believe was called correctly, multiple NFL owners were inclined to keep fighting the locked-out officials.

    Judy Battista of the New York Times reports that Panthers owner Jerry Richardson and Jets owner Woody Johnson initially wanted to dig in. Others, like Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Giants co-owner John Mara, were concerned that damage was being done to the NFL.
