Even though they missed out on the playoffs this year, i still believe that Dan Rooney will have some sort of impact on the outcome of the playoffs and super bowl. For example, since we have 5 super bowls to their 6, i believe Rooney will have some sort of impact on our games, and i believe he will influence the refs to make bad callas against us(not that it hasnt happened already) just to make sure nobody threatens their 6 super bowls. So if you thought yesterdays officiating screwed us over(that on roughing the passer call on Romo was bull ****), then be prepared for it to be even worse in the playoffs and possibly the super bowl, which im hoping and praying that it doesnt happen. The NFL is a corrupt league lead by a corrupt commish, even though most of you already knew that. i am only 22 years old and i dont know why the cowboys get so much hate from the officials and the league, so can someone please fill me in on what the backstory is to that?I was happy the Steelers and Giants got eliminated from the playoffs and i thought for sure Pitt would get in because they are so lucky its sickening. My hatred for the Steelers is on the same level as the Giants Eagles and Redskins, and i hate those stupid terrible towels, i wanna use them to wipe after im done in the bathroom. So even though the Steelers arent participating in the playoffs, look for Rooney to still have some influence, and if/when we get to the big game, its going to be extra hard to play against the AFC team, plus the refs who are wearing the Steelers colors. The league doesnt want any other team to tie the Steelers in Super Bowl victories and i believe that the only other team neck to neck with them in Super Bowl wins is San Fran? but they wont get there for awhile. What i dont understand is that how come Jerry Jones doesnt have this much influence on the league and refs like Rooney does? THe only good thing about Jerry possibly being around for awhile is that maybe someday Dallas will get the refs in their back pocket and the calls going their way.
