Yea I saw that. I will only guess at who Bradshaw is picking. ;)

I have a neighbor who is a Steelers fan. Time for one of those cheese and sausage trays like they had in the Sunday Ticket commercial. :)

Random things in no certain order...

1. Cutler is a jerk sometimes... and doesn't play consistently... BUT he always plays. I have no doubt that if he could have played the rest of the game, he would have played. You can blame him for some mistakes in the first half, but nobody should be questioning him for not returning after taking a hit to the knee.

2. Lack of offensive line protection + Martz playcalling is really the problem with the Bears offense. Martz is a genius but also his own worst enemy... many of his plays only work under perfect circumstances... which means good o-line + right call for the defense + timing + anything else working to perfection.

3. The Packers didn't play great... but they were good enough. In the end, it's all about the win... not if you won by 30 or by 3. Green Bay controlled that whole game, even when they weren't scoring themselves.

Because nowhere that I go on the internet spoils the result except for THIS site, which to me is very ironic.

And I don't go into a sports discussion forum, I come here and when I hit NEW POSTS (which is how I use this forum, and I suppose many others do as well), this thread will come up. Or if I use DBSTalk Spy, this thread will also come up. So, the only answer is to stay away from this forum in its entirety. That just doesn't seem like the way it should be.

It might be Mountains out of mole hills and to be honest, it rarely effects me (I think I've had one game spoiled over the last several years), it just seems weird that so many people are against a simple solution that would benefit others and cause zero harm. Zero.

What's the harm in just not surfing during the last minutes of the game?

I presume you already know some of the sites not to visit during a live game, just add DBStalk to the list, at least near the end of the playoff games. :)

Cheers,
Tom

Regarding comparing Bears vs. Steelers or Packers vs. Steelers:

Any given Sunday.
I don't know how the Bears matchup against the Steelers. So I can't really comment.
Heck, I'm not sure how well the Packers matchup against the Steelers this year--and I watched some Steelers games.

All 4 finalists were very good teams. All 4 had opportunities--but the Any Given Sunday and the Matchups Matter rules both applied.

I'm expecting a very good Super Bowl game. I think any combination of the final 4 teams would make at least a good game.

Cheers,
Tom

I understand Tom and this will be my last comment on the subject, but what's the harm in not having spoilers in the title? I (and I'm sure many) don't just surf during the last part of a game, I surf the whole game. Sometimes I forget that I'm not caught up to live and I surf the same standard sites I normally do (here, some droid sites, some deal sites, some work sites, my email accounts).

And why just playoff games? Seems much simpler to just not have spoilers in titles for any program (sports, TV, movies, etc.). Not sure why this suggestion causes such resistance and angst. Seems simple enough.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

After hearing your POV I have to agree. I personally can't imagine not watching playoff football live, but I understand your point and don't see any harm in putting in a 1 hour rule (or more) to prevent spoiling. I watch all football live and the few times I've tried to watch it delayed it just didn't feel the same. But that's your prerogative and I think a rule should be considered.

Mostly because you're asking the many to conform to the requests of the few. When thousands millions of other sites across the internet will be broadcasting the information.

You can't go to any news sites. They don't block the info.
You can't go to any sports sites. They don't block the info.
You can't go to facebook, twitter, myspace, or, or, or...

So during the time you're behind, just don't surf. Or don't be surprised. You're asking too many people to think about too few people all the time. It just doesn't happen. :)

Cheers,
Tom

The sites I frequent on usenet generally follow the rule of no spoilers in the subject line. A couple other forums don't do offtopic. Keeping scores out of Headers/subject lines is a simple courtesy.

At the same time, hitting UserCP rather than new posts will cut down greatly on the chance of a random disclosure- just an idea. NO guarantees! :sure:

And they better not look at any Text Messages on their cell phone either!

Mine was buzzing like crazy at the start and end of the game. With how quickly news spreads these days, you would almost have to isolate yourself from society to not get the spoiler. I will second your comments here also.

I had 3 phone calls (two of which ended up as voicemails), at least 2 text messages, many facebook notes, etc. And several many emails. :)

Is that some kind of Directv loyalty gift? :grin:

Maybe it's included in the Premiere Package? ;)

Congrats Pack and Arron Rogers. He has shown unbelievable grace in his handling playing second fiddle to Farve. He waited for his time, kept his mouth shut, lived under Farve's shadow even after Farve left and is taking his team to the SB. It can not get any better than that. Hard to find a more deserving person.

Congrats to the Steelers too for getting to the Big Game!

It was great to be able to have Aaron seen on the big stage for the class act that he is...he is living proof that patience is a virtue.

We did play a good game yesterday...and I'm feeling it today. If I get by without a nap, it will be a miracle.

It was that house round of tequilla shots after the game that did me in.
