6.The Court Did What?
7. All my Super Bowl lists have been updated here.
I picked Carolina to win outright (wrong) but Denver plus the points (right). Two things strike me.
Peyton Manning, based on the "where there's smoke, there's fire" PED analysis we accept for baseball players absolutely took HGH. There has been no denial from his camp that his wife received HGA shipments (conveniently) while he was rehabbing from neck surgery. Lesser evidence has been used to justify HOF votes against Piazza and Bagwell.
Peyton Manning's hired PIs scared his accuser sufficiently that a 9-11 call was made.
I'm going to play the race card here. If Manning is Gary Sheffield and "his boys" show up to "talk" to an accuser, is that a story or nah?
Peyton Manning, immediately following his (dreadful, absolutely dreadful) last ever football game plugged Budweiser and then hugged Papa John. Race card again. If it's Cam Newton who wins and throws on some type of sponsors hat before giving an interview, what's the response?
And can I direct your attention to this.
On Feb. 29 of that year, Naughright, at that point the university's director of health and wellness, was in a training room, examining what she thought might be a possible stress fracture in Manning's foot. At 6 feet, 5 inches, his feet dangled off the edge of the table. Manning allegedly then proceeded to scoot down the training table while Naughright examined his foot. At that point, she said, he forcefully maneuvered his naked testicles and rectum directly on her face with his penis on top of her head. Shocked, disgusted, and offended, Naughright pushed Manning away, removing her head out from under him (see pages 14-15). Within hours, she reported the incident to the Sexual Assault Crisis Center in Knoxville (see page 18).
Now, Von Miller.
Von Miller played maybe the greatest defensive game in SB history.
Can I direct your attention to this.
Suspended Denver Broncos Pro Bowl linebacker Von Miller unsuccessfully attempted to corrupt the NFL's drug-testing program with the help of a urine collector before each was caught in a matter that will affect how the NFL's collection testing procedures are done, league sources said.
Can you imagine the baseball equivalent? This was 2013. This was 2 years ago. Barry Bonds is the greatest baseball player who ever lived, and there's been a media driven decision to pretend his career did not happen. Von Miller was suspended 2 years ago and there was not a word of it during the Super Bowl. Bonds's PED use is going to be in his obit. It is beyond frustrating.

And one more...
That's all for this time. I'll be back next time. If there is a next time...
