      May be but from the refereeing I saw in New Orleans yesterday and Giants stadium today I can only imagine what the Giants and 49ers will be in for next week.

        no doubt. I wonder if we can sue the NFL for doing this. Suing for fixing a product that is "told" to be not be.
        This isnt supposed to be the WWE but NFL sure makes it that way.

          You know what's a bigger market than New York? The whole country, who wants to see the two best teams and QBs play each other in the championship.

            Really .... really?

            Television markets?? That's what it's all about? ...and the NFL would jeopardize their cash cow by 'cooking' the game? I've heard this crap at nearly every fan site I've been at. Say that the officiating is an inexact principle ... say that it's too subjective to human error .... say something non-committal that make you out to sound like you're awaiting part two of the partial lobotomy that you've obviously already received....Good gawd man, you sound like a Viking or Lion fan [:'(] My question to you, TroyArcher would be this: Are you old enough to remember what football was like before ESPN started broadcasting? I would bet not ....

            Need I remind you that last year's Super Bowl was the most watched and had the highest rating of any television broadcast ever (all categories, not just sports...) .... little ol' Green Bay and middle of the top-20 Pittsburgh. Market size doesn't matter ... Packers fans are flippin' EVERYWHERE, brother.

              NY makes more money for the NFL if they are constantly better then the whole league. Their is a reason why the Yankees are the most valued franchise in the world and the knicks are the #2 or somthing most valued franchise in the NBA even after a decade of crap. NY > Every other team in the USA.

                Remember the whole Tim Donaghy scandal in the NBA? During that whole fiasco it was alleged that there were certain "company men" refs who would try to throw the game to the team who was behind in a playoff series to extend it to 7 games. Never underestimate what greed can do.

                      No I think he is right... They want another game like the one the first Thursday night. They put up all those points. They figure it would be a rating bonanza
                      Football has been very, very good to us.
                      After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                      But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                      # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                      1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                      2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                      3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                      4-New York Giants!!!
                      5-NE
                      Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                        Real football fans will watch no matter who's playing.

                        The casual/occasional fan wants a story (not nec. a shootout). Drew Brees made his story that Sunday night when he broke the record on national TV. Rodgers is a star (see his commercials everwhere??) with the defending champs and favorites to do it ALL. The NFL definitely wants a Packers/Saints game.

                        On a related note, it must have been strange for the Steelers to NOT be the NFL's pick to advance today. We all know Tebow. . .what team is he on again. . .gets more mass public attention than anyone in the NFL. Heck, half of his fans own more bibles than footballs.

                        Just as the NHL wanted an overtime-shootout in the Winter Classic, the NFL would KILL to have a Tebow-Packers Superbowl (with Tebow-Saints a runnerup).

                        BTW: I believe the better teams will win, but some teams might get a push when they need it.

                          Actually the most valuable sports franchise in the world is Manchester United... The Yankees are close though.

                            If it's anyone the refs are going to favor, it's probably the giants.

                            Think about the profit and views they'd make if the Giants beat the amazing Packers.

                            Just think about it, they are salivating over it
