The League Office Hates the Patriots

The League Office Hates the Patriots (And the Bucs too.)

Moving the Jets-Dolphins game is a travesty, a farce and a greater punishment that the loss of a draft pick.

 

 

I can't believe a bigger deal isn't being made out of the league's decision to screw the Patriots in the playoff chase by moving the Jets-Dolphins game to the later time-slot on Sunday. Concurrent games for teams who's results effect each other are the only way to be fair (FIFA - the World Soccer organization knows this which is why the finals of group stages are always done concurrently.)

If you're going to move one game for TV purposes, the only fair thing to do is to move the other game as well.

I'm not saying that the Jets are going to deliberately throw the game, but it's human nature to let down when you don't have anything to play for.*

This is truly classless by the NFL and it's a shot to the Patriot playoff chances.

*I know the Jets go to the playoffs if they win and the Jags win at Baltimore. But when's the last time a good home team who needed a win for a playoff berth lost to a below .500 road team playing for nothing. This is unrealistic.
