As soon as Ray Ray announced his retirement and everyone started making a big to-do over it, I could see where things might be headed. And unless Brady pulls off a miracle, it looks like the NFL will get its storyline.
Cause Baltimore is such a populous place? If they wanted casual viewers they would make it a Peyton vs Eli superbowl. Send the teams with the biggest city markets. Come on Ray Lewis? half the country that will watch one NFL game all year doesn't know who he is.
It wasn't a ref conspiracy last week. It was a ref team that didnt work together with a head ref who's been out of football for a while recently due to health problems.
