    I was talking with my cousin who lives in Pissburg.

    There is this notion, apparently, that the Cowboys benefited from the officiating in the game but the Squeelers didnt.

    :bang2: :bang2: :bang2: :bang2: :bang2: :bang2:

    I mentioned that the Cowboys had 8 penalties to ZERO fro the Squeelers. That pretty much ended our football part of the conversation.

    I know Im a Cowboys homer and see things thru blue and silver lenses, but I do try to be as objective as I can. The same cannot be said for Squeeler fans. And for that matter, Skins fans have no objectivity whatsoever either. Its why I hate the Skins and Stealers and their fans so much!

    I keep hearing from Skins fans this week that Dallas was lucky to win this game because of the Antonio Brown fumble. I remind them that Murray fumbled in the first half inside the top 10 and Dallas actually dominated the first few minutes of the game and could have been up 17-0. Not to mention that the Skins escaped by a hair against Baltimore themselves.

    I wouldn't expect anything different from a Steelers fan. A buddy of mine is a Steelers fan and he missed the game. I told him today that it was a good game and he said the Steelers played terribly. I said, "how do you know, you didn't watch the game?"

    I'd venture to say every fan base has all kinds of different fans with different levels of football IQ. But I will say the Eagles fans, in my mind, are terrible when it comes to football intellegence.

    What gets me is these people who have a different team every year. They drive me nuts and can't name 2 players on "THEIR" team. I also can't stand the casual Cowboys fans either. The first thing out of their mouth is:" We need to get rid of Romo." LOL

    A thread about the Stealers being cheated by the refs on this board....oh the irony.

    There isn't a week go by here that the complaint thread about penalties is posted.

    Win or lose.

    The Rooney's have a dark history with the underbelly of the NFL and league corruption. And it shows again and again.

    How does a team not receive a single penalty in an entire game?

    Every time a team loses in the NFL some of that team's fans think the referee was corrupt and helped the other team.

    Personally, I think the refs are people and they make mistakes, sometimes those mistakes are more numerous in favor of one team or the other. But, I think any ideas about some widespread league conspiracy against any one team is a good example of confirmation bias. You forget the iffy calls that go for you, or you rationalize them somehow, and remember the calls that go against you. After a while, you have enough pseudo-evidence built up to sustain your own personal conspiracy theory.
