NFL Officials Blow Call in MNF Game Between Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions … Illegal Bat Penalty Should Have Given Lions the Ball on the 1 Yard Line



Well, the NFL officials have managed to screw up another call and this time it looks like they cost a NFL team a football game. The Detroit Lions were going into score to win the game against the Seattle Seahawks with seconds left in the game. All-world WR Calvin Johnson caught the pass and was heading into the end zone when the Seahawks Cam Chancellor punched the ball from the receivers hands and the ball went into the end zone and then the football was knocked out of bounds by K.J. Wright. Game over and touch-back to Seattle, right? As Lee Corso would say … Not so fast my friend.

Football Rules for Dummies

“I have spoken to the referee (Tony Corrente). He did not see that part of the play because that is not his area. The back judge (Greg Wilson) felt it was not an intentional act, that it was inadvertent,” he added.

Wright, however, admitted that it was an intentional act.

“I wanted to just knock it out of bounds and not try to catch it and fumble it,” he said. ” I was just trying to make a good play for my team.

Once again the NFL has 10,000 rules and yet some how they still can’t get the obvious correct. If all turnovers are reviewable, how in the hell isn’t the entirety of the play reviewable? Don’t give me this crap of intent. The facts are the fact of a play and it is obvious that the player, K.J. Wright intentionally batted the ball out of bounds. If you asked him at the time of the play he would have admitted it. But a gutless and clueless NFL back judge refused to make the call. What’s the matter coward, you afraid the 12th Man would have attacked you? Or is it that the NFL and Roger Goodell needs to protect the Seahawks from going 1-3?

This is not the first time that Seattle has been given a gift by NFL referees as we all remember the infamous “Fail Mary”. However, at least those were replacement refs. What was your excuse last night? With so many plays now reviewed, one has to wonder what the purpose is anymore of a referee during a game. There was no guarantee that the Lions would have scored from the one yard line, after all it is the Lions. However, wouldn’t it have been ironic that the Seattle D was on the field with a chance to win the game, something their offense could not do in last year’s Super Bowl against the New England patriots.

USA TODAY: NFL Blows it Again.

Another Monday night in Seattle, another controversial ending.

The NFL’s officiating crew botched the ruling on what appeared to be a remarkable game-clinching play in the Seattle Seahawks’ 13-10 escape from the Detroit Lions.

Seahawks Pro Bowl safety Kam Chancellor punched the ball from the hands of Lions wideout Calvin Johnson as he was about to cross the goal line for the go-ahead score. The ball rolled through the end zone, and Seattle linebacker K.J. Wright intentionally tapped the ball over the back line, thinking the Seahawks would take possession on a touchback, which they did with 1:45 to go.

But should they have?

“You can’t bat the ball in any direction in the end zone. K.J. Wright batted the football, that is a foul for an illegal bat,” NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino said on NFL Network following the game.

11 Year Old Boy Faces 1st Degree Murder Charges in the Shooting Death of 8 Year Old MaKayla Dyer in White Pine, TN



An 11 year old boy has been charged with the shooting death of his 8 year old neighbor, MaKayla Dyer. The unidentified boy, due to his age, is reported to have shot MaKayla Dyer with a 12-guage shotgun over a discussion about puppies. That’s correct. An 8 year old is dead today over puppies. For an eleven year old to do something this callous and heinous, there is more going on with this child than an argument over puppies. According to accounts from a neighbor, Chasity Atwood,  “He asked the little girl to see her puppies. She said no and laughed and then turned around, looked at her friend and said, ‘Let’s go get the — ‘ and never got ‘puppies’ out.” The boy then shot her in the chest with a shotgun owned by the boy’s father. Look for the father to be charged with reckless endangerment or negligent homicide as well. Who the hell in their right mind owns guns and just has them out in the open with children present in the home?

Authorities were called to Robin Road in White Pine around 7:30 p.m. Saturday on a report of a shooting.

Deputies found the girl on the ground with a gunshot wound to the chest. She was taken to Morristown-Hamblen Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Sheriff Bud McCoig said the young girl’s next-door neighbor, a fifth grader at White Pine Elementary School, used his father’s 12-gauge single-shot shotgun to shoot and kill the girl from inside his house. The victim was in second grade at the same school.

Officials have not released the name of the shooter or the victim, but neighbors identified the victim as Maykayla Dyer.

Sheriff McCoig would not release any details on a possible motive, but neighbors say the two were arguing over a puppy.

“Wanting to see a puppy, the little girl laughed and told him no, and that was it,” neighbor Chasity Arwood said.

NBC News: Tennessee Boy, 11, Charged With Killing Girl After Argument Over Puppies.

Dyer was transported to Morristown-Hamblen Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The boy is being held in juvenile court on charges of first-degree murder.

At Dyer’s school on Monday, principal Bill Walker told reporters that “it’s not just the school that’s hurting — it’s the whole community,” he said, adding, “We remember her smile and her beautiful face and her interaction with her classmates.”

West Hartford Police Officer Refused service at a Dunkin’ Donuts … Was Told “We Don’t Serve Cops Here.”



This crap is happening far too often and its about time the public just start not going to places and spending money in places that are so disrespectful to authority. According to FOX- CT, a West Hartford police officer was told by an employee at the Dunkin Donuts located at 1234 Farmington Avenue in West Hartford, CT that “He didn’t get the message. We don’t serve cops here.” The police officer then walked out of the establishment with the manager and the employee following him, apologizing. Honestly, what is wrong with these people? Can you imagine the outrage and the boycott of their store if they had said the same thing to a black, gay or illegal? Maybe the West Hartford police do not need to do any more drive by’s of the Dunkin Donut’s at night or take their time if there is a call there.

An officer entered the Dunkin Donuts located at 1234 Farmington Avenue in West Hartford to purchase a cup of coffee. The store was busy with a number of customers inside.

According to police, as the officer was standing at the back of the line, an employee looked over at him said loudly, “He didn’t get the message. We don’t serve cops here.”

The officer exited the store without any workers saying anything further. Police said as the officer was returning to his cruiser, he was approached by the manager and the employee who was apologizing and stated she was only joking.

The officer told the employee that instead of apologizing to him, she should apologize to the people in the store who appeared to take offense to her comment.


UPDATE I: Police, Community React To Dunkin’ Donuts Worker’s Refusal To Serve West Hartford Cop.

The day after a West Hartford police officer was refused service at a Dunkin’ Donuts, people from Connecticut and across the country reacted on social media.

Dozens tweeted the accounts of the local Connecticut Dunkin’ Donuts franchise group and the national Dunkin’ Donuts headquarters, many users calling for a boycott of the company and for the employee to be fired.

Both accounts answered with the same response: “We are aware, Dunkin’ Donuts & our franchisees share a commitment to the well-being & fair treatment of all of guests. The crew member exhibited poor judgement & the franchisee has apologized to the police officer on behalf of Dunkin’ Donuts.”

Connecticut State Police tweeted support for the franchise on Sunday.

“Despite the actions of 1, we know our friends @DunkinDonuts support us,” the state police account posted.

The tweet was in response to an incident on Saturday at the Dunkin’ Donuts at 1234 Farmington Ave., during which a West Hartford police officer waiting in line was told by an employee that “we don’t serve cops here,” according to a police report.

The Search for Missing Cargo Ship El Faro Finds 225 Sq. Mile Debris Field Found After Ship Vanishes in Hurricane Joaquin (Missing ID’s: Jeremy Riehm, Steven Shultz and Keith Griffin)


The Coast Guard continues to search for the missing US flagged cargo ship El Faro that vanished during Hurricane Joaquin. Searches have found a 225-square-mile debris field.  According to AccuWeather Meteorologist Edward Vallee, “At the time the ship went missing, Joaquin was churning through the southeastern Bahamas with winds sustained at 125 mph. Seas were observed up to 30 feet along with blinding rain and strong winds.”

A 225-square-mile “debris field” was discovered by crews looking for signs of a cargo ship carrying 28 Americans that vanished during Hurricane Joaquin — a frantic search entering its fifth day.

The Coast Guard said it had scoured 70,000 square nautical miles of the Atlantic as the search resumed at daybreak Monday.

Three more Americans were identified among the 33 people on board the El Faro container vessel, which hasn’t been heard from since Thursday. A distress call indicated it had lost power and was taking on water as it sailed through the Bahamas at the height of the hurricane.

South Florida men Jeremy Riehm, 46, and Steven Shultz, 51, were named by their families as among the missing, according to NBC affiliate WBBH. A third American was identified as Keith Griffin.

CNN: Coast Guard finds debris field in search for El Faro.

Sadly, the fact that the US Coast Guard has found an oil slick in the debris field may mean that the ship broke apart.

The U.S. Coast Guard reported Sunday evening that it had discovered a 225-square-mile debris field in the Caribbean Sea during its search for missing container ship El Faro.

The Jacksonville, Florida-based El Faro, which was carrying a crew of 28 Americans and five Polish nationals on its way to San Juan, Puerto Rico, went missing near the Bahamas last week as Hurricane Joaquin, with winds blowing at 130 mph, passed over the archipelago.

Sunday’s discovery of the debris field, which consisted of Styrofoam, wood, cargo and other items, according the Coast Guard, came only hours after the agency said searchers had found “multiple items,” including an oil sheen, life jackets and containers in the same search area.

4 Students at Summerville High School in Tuolumne, CA Arrested for Plotting to Shoot & Kill Fellow Students and Teachers


Just days after a mass shooting at an Oregon community college campus, four students a the Summerville High School in Tuolumne, California were arrested for plotting to shoot and kill their fellow classmates and teachers. The arrests took place on Saturday by police. The murder plot was foiled on Wednesday when a group of students alerted a teacher after they overheard three of the four discussing a plan to open fire on the school. Those arrested had created a hit list of students and faculty members to shoot and as many others as possible.  According to accounts, the teacher then immediately told school administrators, who quickly removed the three from their classrooms and called the police.

Tuolumne County Sheriff James Mele stated, “detectives located evidence verifying a plot to shoot staff and students at Summerville High School. The suspects’ plan was very detailed in nature and included names of would-be victims, locations and the methods in which the plan was to be carried out.” Although the names of the juveniles were not released, the four individuals were all males and were students at Summerville High School. The teens are currently being helf in juvenile hall.

Four Northern California high school students have been arrested in connection with what law enforcement officials called a highly detailed plan to shoot and kill fellow students and teachers, just days after a mass shooting on a community college campus in rural Oregon.

The four, all students at Summerville High School in Tuolumne, Calif., “were going to come on campus and shoot and kill as many people as possible at the campus,” Sheriff James W. Mele of Tuolumne County said at a news conference on Saturday.

Sheriff Mele did not identify the students other than to say all were male juveniles. Tuolumne is about 120 miles east of San Francisco.

Investigators have found no clear motive for the planned attack, Sheriff Mele said, but he said that “the suspects’ plans were very detailed in nature and included names of would-be victims, locations and methods in which the plan was to be carried out.” The students planned to open fire during an event at school, he said, and “were in the process of trying to obtain these weapons.”

Officials said the plot was foiled on Wednesday when a group of students alerted a teacher after they overheard three of the four discussing a plan to open fire on the school.

The BS of the AP & Coaches Polls … Ohio St #1 After Playing No One and Winning by Close Scores



Has anyone been paying attention to what the Utah Utes have been doing this year? It would appear that the AP and Coaches poll voters are doing their best Fred Gwyn impersonations, “What’s a Ute”?  So 6 weeks into the NCAA season and we have a #1 team that has played nothing but nobodies, and played them close. How does Ohio St. hold on to the #1 spot when they have not earned it. If you don’t have the resume and you don’t pass the eyes test, why are you #1? And that goes for you too Michigan State. Oh, it’s because they have brand recognition, really? So 1 of the 4 teams to determine the National Championship is going to be picked based upon two undeserving teams in OSU and MSU when they play on 11/21? It must be nice to play in a conference where you have one difficult game to determine if you make it to the final 4.


The AP and Coaches poll voters should be ashamed of themselves. Have you watched any of the Ohio St Buckeyes games, any of them, Nunan? How does anyone give a team 38 AP 1st place votes and an even worse 50 first place coaches poll votes for a team who has played Va Tech (2-3), Hawaii (2-3), NIU (2-3), Western Michigan (1-3), and Indiana (3-1)? Making matters even more of a joke is the fact that OSU struggled to beat Va Tech, who lost their starting QB during the same. Did we mention that Va Tech has also lost to East Carolina and Pitt and only have wins against Furman and another joke in the Big Ten, Purdue. Making Ohio St and even bigger joke of being ranked #1 is their victories against NIU (20-13), Western Michigan (38-12) and an Indiana (34-27) team who has also played no one. Ohio St was a 21 point favorite over the Hoosiers, and hung on to win with the Indiana QB nearly pulling off the upset. The Buckeyes were 34.5 point favorites against NIU and 31 point favorites against Western Michigan. Needless to say they didn’t even come close to covering.

So I ask the question, why do other teams get knocked down in the rankings when they fail to provide style points and run up the score against teams they have no business playing, but those rules don’t apply to Ohio St? Just curious. Another note to the ignorant and would would seem to be bias voters, losing on the road to a ranked team would hardly seem to be a reason to lower some one in the polls 7, 8 or 9 spots. So the purpose of these polls is to only play cupcakes? Honestly, who the hell in their right mind drops a team 9 spots in the polls who goes into Death Valley in Clemson, SC and barely loses a game by 2 when they had outplayed the home team in an absolute down pour?

In any event, Ohio St is not the #1 team and to even fathom the thought that two Big Ten teams are #1 and #2  in this day and age of just how bad that conference has become, need their head’s examined and their voting privileges taken away.

The AP Ranking are as follows:

RK    Team    Rec
1    Ohio State (38)    5-0
2    TCU (5)    5-0
3    Baylor (10)    4-0
4    Michigan State    5-0
5    Utah (7)    4-0
6    Clemson    4-0
7    LSU    4-0
8    Alabama    4-1
9    Texas A&M (1)    5-0
10    Oklahoma    4-0
11    Florida    5-0
12    Florida State    4-0
13    Northwestern    5-0
14    Ole Miss    4-1
15    Notre Dame    4-1
16    Stanford    4-1
17    USC    3-1
18    Michigan    4-1
19    Georgia    4-1
20    UCLA    4-1
21    Oklahoma State    5-0
22    Iowa    5-0
23    California    5-0
24    Toledo    4-0
25    Boise State 4-1

For anyone who is fair minded and is only taking into account what has gone on the field this year, not based upon last year or some preconceived notion that they are better than they really are would have their top 10 teams as follows. Of course these polls can change depending on wins and loses from week to week and how one wins.

1. Utah
2. TCU
3. Baylor
4.Texas A&M
5. Ohio St.
6. LSU
7. Alabama
9. Oklahoma
10. Michigan St.
