I'm 25 and so I still keep up with the "in" crowed a bit. Currently there is a new slang like word going around and that word is Juiced. Juiced means you just got fooled or screwed. If a RB makes a CB miss really badly, the CB has been juiced. I'm not sure where or why this word has caught on, or how it was determined to be used in this instanc, but I feel it is appropriate for this situation, because last night the KC Chiefs got juiced by the boys in white and black.
I know no one really likes to blame the refs for anything anymore, but I assure you that last night was as good a time as any to give resposibillity to the zebras.
The Chiefs start this game DOMINATING the Pats. Getting pressure (something like 4 sacks in the first half), moving the ball on offense, shutting down the patriots offense. So what happened? Let me give you the pivitol play.
8:46 left in the second it's 3rd and 11 from the 45....THOMAS JONES picks up 14 yards but wait, a bs holding on Leonard Pope KILLS the Chiefs momentum, they can't convert 3rd and 21 and they have to punt.
This is followed by the Patriots TD drive, which I counted numerous holds that were never called, and it's a snowball effect from there. I've thought of it like this a boxer has another boxer pinned up aginst the ropes, and it taking shot after shot, puttin the gloves to'em, then the ref for no reason stops the fight and says lets start back in the middle again, giving the other fighter a second start. When you're playing Tom brady and the Pats, you can't give them a second chance or they will destroy you, I give you last nights game as a perfect example. And the REFS gave the Pats a second chance.
The Chiefs team I know and love is in shambles, they are NOT as good as the Pats are, but last night we had there number for a quarter and a half and then once again a ref got involved and messed things up. This has happened countless times the past 2 years, not just the Chiefs games, EVERY game. The ref really are taking the fun out of football for me. I love football, but I feel like every year more and more games are decided by referees than the players. I hope that one day fans will be willing to stand up and say we wont take it anymore. Why fans and not players? Because WE (the fans) line their pockets with gold, and once we say...no more, they'll fix it....until then they're making their money and they don't care. It's simple supply and demand...if we don't demand they wont supply.........
I hope that eventually this post makes a difference....
