Emotions around town are still running high a day after NFL officials reversed an obvious penalty and turned it into one of the worst calls in Lions football history.
We’ve relived the Brandon Pettigrew call all day and all night. It was the wrong call and it led to the Dallas Cowboys game-winning drive and ultimate 24-20 victory over the Lions. People from around the country said officials blew it. I expect an apology from the NFL but of course nothing will come of it.
Here is what surprises me. Many of you want to boycott the remainder of the NFL playoffs or at least Sunday’s Ice Bowl II between the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers. It won’t make a difference but we at least will get some satisfaction. I love NFL playoff football. I never miss a game but I am willing to skip this one game.
I need to check my schedule and I need to see if we an find a willing partner to host us. But I would love to host a viewing party in a sports bar with the televisions turned off or tuned to something else. If we are going to protest then we need to protest together and do it as a group. I am not sure if I can pull this off but check my twitter account at TerryFoster971. and on my face book page.
Maybe we can pull something off. That is if you guys are really serious. Maybe this is emotions after a tough loss coming out. Maybe by the weekend you will all be ready for a big playoff game on the frozen tundra.
